how to override the Epson change ink cartridge setting Xp-630

This is my first (and perhaps last Epson printer).  For 30 years I have had HP printers and always had a really good experience.  This one has been a nightmare...ink, settings, wireless hangups, etc.

But, the above rant is just for those thinking about buying a cheap printer.

Now, the question.

Article after article online exists about ink cartridges having anywhere from 10 to 30 % ink left in them when Epson stops printing because it says a cartridge has to be changed.

Right now, my printer has a full xl black in.  The photoBlack is low.  I want to print a black and white document.  So, even though there is plenty of black ink I cannot finish printing a document because the photo Black is low.

On every HP printer I had previously I could print until I DECIDED to replace the ink.  I can tell when the print gets low and the quality falls.  And, it never damaged the printer.  I had each one for years.

So, I am hoping that there is a setting that gives the OWNER the independence/freedom to decide when to replace the ink.   I am hopeful that this can be done and my ire with Epson may subside and happiness return to my printing at home experience. : )

It is true that I had never purchased such a cheap printer as the XP-630, but I recently retired and print documents so rarely, I thought surely this would accomplish the task. But, it is an expensive process.

Hope you can help me out.
