    Maybe not run out but if your printer has been on the shelf in the store a while they may have dried out. Try doing a print head cleaning if its an inkjet and see if its just a clogged printhead if still no color you may need to buy new inks. If you have a color laser I can't help you never used one.

    It depends on your printer. You'll have to read the manual. There is usually a button combination that will force a head cleaning. Or look in the App Store to see if your manufacturer has an app for the printer. Sometimes those include extra settings/maintenance options.
