*Lexmark CS417dn* Do these Lexmarks have an "override out" mode?
I picked up a used Lexmark CS417dn for occasional color printing (I don't need to all the time, but it's become more of a need then I had ~10 years ago). I am aware the "return program" toner will usually stop Lexmark printers (or at least, lock out color and go to B/W only) due to the chip programming.
But say when I eventually get rid of them (they're fairly common because most people see the ~$25-50 savings and give into the "return program" scam) and swap for standard toner as needed, can I put the printer into a "override out" condition where the toner levels are disregarded like what the HPs offer? I looked at the more current HP color lasers (the older pre-2015 ones like the Pro 400 M451dn/dw and the CP2025 are beginning to enter "high page count" status, sigh). My problem with HP is after 2014 all new models are "dynamic security" based and that includes the toner. That alone has largely put me off to getting another HP.
If this mode isn't possible, is it at least possible to use it as a monochrome printer until the empty toner is replaced?
