968 aio - does it need all cartridges to run?

I need a fax machine and someone is offering me a Dell 968 printer cheap, but it needs ink.   I can see why he is selling it, the ink is awful expensive!  If I only need it for faxes, do I need to fill all the cratridges or will it run with just the black filled?

me021490,

 

Yes, you'll need to purchase a Black and Color Dell Series 7 ink cartyridges.

 

Dell Series 7 ink cartridges have a sensor in them that cannot be reset. Article on refilling Dell ink cartridges.

 

Dell Series 7 ink cartridges can be purchased at Staples, Walmart or Dell's Website.

Re: 968 aio - does it need all cartridges to run?

wow - I didn't realize that.  So I have to buy both black and color, and it probably won't work right if I don't buy official ones.  I guess it's probably not worth getting it then.  I can buy it for $20, but would have to spend $60 for ink.

Thank you for the advice.
