Re: all black when coping
Here is the link for the troubleshooting, manuals, drivers etc for your machine. Try going through the troubleshooter (Epson troubleshooters are usually pretty good). If no luck then update all the drivers - some drivers become unstable when windows has been updated or other software has unknowingly affected them.
If you get no luck with this then please post again. Hope this helps :)

Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles. If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive. It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.
If you have random blotches on both sides of the sheet, your printer probably needs cleaning, especially in the fuser section. If the fuser is difficult to get at, here's a good cheat developed for HP LaserJet 6 printers: Use a basic graphics program such as Microsoft Paint to draw three solid black rectangles about 2.5" top to bottom, going all the way across the paper (the space in between is not critical - the key is that you go as close to edge-to-edge as you can get). Print out this sheet.
Put the sheet back in the paper tray so it will print on the blank side (usually printed side up). Open up a quick text processor (Notepad in Windows). Type a single space, then print (some text editors won't print a document with no data in it). Dirt in the fuser will get stuck to the black areas on your cleaning sheet. Test your work by printing another copy of " ". Repeat with a new cleaning sheet if necessary.
Many printers support duplex printing, but they don't all make the duplex option available in the same way. With some desktop printers, choosing duplex means that the printer prints all of the copies of the first side of a page, then pauses and asks you to flip the sheets that it just printed and return them to the printer, after which it prints all of the copies of the second side. This method is called manual duplexing.
To print on both sides of a sheet of paper:
On the File menu, click Print.
In the Print dialog box, in the Name list, select the printer that you want to use.
Note The information in the Properties dialog box varies depending upon the manufacturer of the printer you're using. With some printers, you will see a Layout tab with a Print on both sides option on it. With other printers, you might see a Features tab, and the duplex option might be called something like Two-sided printing. Explore the various tabs in the Properties dialog box until you locate the duplex printing option.
Choose the duplex printing option that you want.
The options will be called something like Long edge (or Flip on long edge) and Short edge (or Flip on short edge). Whether it's better for the paper to be flipped on the short edge or the long edge depends upon the type of publication you're printing. You might need to print a test publication or two to discover which option works best.
Click OK to close the Properties dialog box, and then click OK again to close the Print dialog box and print your publication.
The printer does not support duplex coping. If you want to do manual duplex copying, you can make a copy of the first page. Then reinsert the paper upside down in the manual tray or paper tray, fil the page on the document feeder and make the back copy.
Is the copier just stirring and making a noise? If so it is tring to add toner, but it can not find any.. The meter count or yield of a toner cartridge is rated at only 6% cover of a whole page. Your guess is as good as mine what are you coping mostly black/dark copies? it will be used up quicker.
