The way that it would work is fine with an empty cart.  Set print quality to
grayscale (not color) and should be fine.  It won't matter whether you say
color cart or photo cart, just say grayscale.

Agreed, but be sure to go into the printer config and find the options where
you set print resolution and color... such as "300dpi, black+color
cartridge".... and set it to an option which has black cartridge only. That
way, items which normally print in color will now print in greyscale instead
of not at all.
