Re: NO BLACK IN PRINT OUT
Check if your black cartridge is full. If it is you can do a prent head clean through the "ink management" button on your console. Be sure to only clean the black. It will prompt you do print a nozzle check, print this out. It will show you what heads are working. If after a couple of head cleans, there is still nothing showing on the test page, leave the printer on over night and try again tomorrow. there may be an air block in the tubes and the printhead clean will have moved the lock and it will clear by itself.

Inkjet printer inks are dye-based, and that's the reason.
Perhaps this will help explain things. You know those little boxes of food colouring you can buy in the supermarket - the ones that have four little bottles of colour - red, blue, yellow and green. Within reason you can combine these to turn white icing into most colours. Use nothing and the icing is still white or use everything and the icing will go a black-brown colour. Use a couple of drops of red and blue and you'll get purple.
But if you start with black icing, there's nothing you can add that will make it anything but black.
It's the same with your inkjet printer - because white is obtained by not having any ink print on the white paper. But of course that only works when the paper is white. Naturally you'll get different results on all colours of paper, decreasing as the paper gets darker in colour. Print blue on yellow paper and you should get green printing.
The only way to print in white is to do what commercial printers do - use opaque inks and include a white ink in the process. And as far as I know there's no commercial ink that will do that with an inkjet printer.
I can hear lots of you muttering "Rubbish. Of course you can print light colours on dark paper." Well all I can say is, have fun experimenting, but you won't be able to do it.
About the only way to achieve the sort of result you may be after is to print the job then trim it and paste it in place. For instance, if you want to print onto a black or dark-coloured T-shirt then print onto white transfer material, trim the print to size and iron it in place.
Assuming that you are using original Canon cartridges or a brand of Compatibles that you have used before.
If print results are blurred, colors are faded or not printed correctly, the pint head nozzles are probably clogged. Follow the procedure below to print the nozzle check pattern, check the print head nozzle condition, then clean the Print Head. You may have to do this 2 or 3 times. If printed ruled lines are misaligned or print results are otherwise unsatisfactory, aligning the Print Head may improve print quality. Caution Do not rinse or wipe the Print Head and ink tanks. This can cause trouble with the Print Head and ink tanks. Note Before performing maintenance Open the Top Cover and make sure that all lamps on the ink tanks are lit red. If not, see Checking the Ink Status and take an appropriate action. Increasing the print quality in the printer driver settings may improve the print result.
Please check if your Colour Ink Cartridge is not emply. If their's ink in the cartridge then try to service your printer through the Print Preferences. Your Colour Cartridge Nozzels could have been blocked thats why your printer is unable to print in Colour.
In case if both the above doesn't work then check in the Print Preferences that you should not have saved the option of PRINT DOCUMENT IN BLACK ONLY. hope this helps , AJ
Hi, this is not a solution because I don't think there is one apart from buying new inks. Epson and all other inkjet printers do this to prevent the coloured print head nozzles from getting blocked. If they are not used for a long time the ink dries up and blocks the nozzles. Epson recommends printing at least once a month with all colours to prevent this. Printing in black only option will only work if the colored inks are OK. Whenever the printer is turned on it performs a head clean, this is why the coloured inks get used over time even though they are not used for printing.
Hello, This can be FIXED. I'm not trying to be helpful. I'm here to FIX your problem.
You want to make changes to the printer settings to once again print in Black and White or Grayscale mode by going to Start Menu, Control Panel, Printers. Right click your printer and select Properties. Now make the changes to everything prints Black and White or Grayscale. This will make the change effective system wide as opposed to what you did which was for a single print job in a program.
Now, unfortunately, you will still get an error message that your color cartridges are empty anyway because they are.
To disable the error message do this. Press and Hold the Stop/Reset button for 6 full seconds and then release it?
Use the one Mississippi method of counting.
This will disable the empty cartridge error on most Epson printers.
