Does this printer need color ink to function?

My previous HP Photosmart 7520 wouldn't function without a color ink cartridge installed. Given the fact that I don't use color ink too often, I'd rather not have to pay for the color ink cartridge if I primarily will be printing documents. Does this printer function without color ink installed?

  • If it requires 4 separate ink cartridges, it should work without the color in. Though you mention that you do use color seldom, so why not have them in, why go through the hassle if that is the case, besides you never know when you just might want to print something in color.
