Solved with Windex soaking -
Had the same problem. Took out the print head and sat the ink jet bottom it on a folded paper towel in a small dish. I poured about 1/4 cup of Windex on the inside and outside of the print head (also wetting the paper towel) and slid the dish into a ziplock bag. Let this sit for about 12 hours. Took the print head out and held it under hot running water until the water ran clear. Dried off the print head and repeated the Windex treatment for another 4 hours. Then repeated the hot water and dried off the head gently with a paper towel. I shook the remaining water drops out of the print head by shaking vigorously over the sink. Made sure the circuit board on the back was completely dry.

Reinstalled the print head and cartridges. Ran the head alignment. Printed the test page. Excellent! (I needed to do this twice for a really stubborn one.)

Replace and install the black ink cartridge with this Black Ink Tank BCI-3eBK Ifyou have done this and is still missing the black ink on print, clean the print heads. 1. Right-click the printer icon, and then select 'Properties'.
2. Click the 'Maintenance' tab, and then click 'Deep Cleaning'. 3. Read the message displayed, and then click 'OK'. The power lamp blinks and print head deep cleaning starts. (Do not perform any other operations until print head deep cleaning is complete. Print head deep cleaning takes about 1 minute.)

That should most likely work. If deep cleaning did not help, you may need to replace the print head.

Color toner used up even though I selected grayscale


Selecting grayscale only will also make use of your color. when u select grayscale, look under the print options and select black cartridge only and for more economic printing, use fast draft or draft printing.

Try cleaning the black print head, It might make a difference. You need to do this through your software preferences.

Black ink print failure after cartridge replaced


The Edge, -Clean the electrical contacts on the printer where the cartridge connects with alcohol. After it dries clean the same contacts with a regular pink, non-abrasive pencil eraser making sure you remove all the debris when done. -Its also possible there is an air bubble preventing the flow of ink. You can try inserting a full cartridge of ink in the printer and letting it sit overnight then running a nozzle clean job or two. Another alternative if you have a syringe you may want to try gently forcing ink into it. If you?re really desperate you can try drilling a small hole into the cartridge to give gravity feeding a hand. BE WARNED the air hole will let ink flow pretty well and you run the chance of making a mess. Before you pull the cartridge out of the printer make sure you cover the hole with tape so the ink doesn?t make even more mess. -Check the cartridge alignment making sure the contacts are mating to the printer. -If it still doesn?t work I would try cleaning your nozzles. Even though I doubt you have clogged nozzles its worth a try because of the following: If you search the Internet you?ll find that this specific model is know for failing to print some or all colors after about 1 ½ to 2 years of use, even with Epson inks. Most of the posts I?ve seen blame it on clogged nozzles but I suspect a good number of them, like yours, have another explanation for their failure. Ink jet printers use resistors to create heat to create a bubble in the ink to eject it out of the nozzle (Bubble jet) or in the case of Epson, vibrating crystals push ink into and out of the nozzles (piezoelectric). We?ve already cleaned the electrical contacts and cleaned the nozzles so what remain are defective nozzles, short between the nozzle and the controller board or a defective controller board. Since the printer is only worth 1 or 2 hundred dollars repairs at a shop or buying these repair parts can easily exceed ½ its cost. Hope something here works for you, I just recently had to toss a great printer too. Let us know what happens and please don?t forget to rate the posting.
