    I took the printer to a repairer, and it turns out the cartridge I had bought on ebay was a refilled one, leaking, and the compatable one was the incorrect one. A new epson cartridge was put in, and no more problems. Thanks to everyone for their help.

Normal 0 Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

I have a new black ink cartridge but my printer wont print because the color ink is empty is there a way to get it to print without refilling the colored ink since i only need black???


When printing in BLACK, a small amount of the COLOUR ink also is used.
This "trick" prevents the COLOUR ink-jets from clogging, due to not being used.

So, you need to have a "good" COLOUR ink-cartridge.

Compatible non epson ink not working


Epson has gone to great lengths to block compatible cartridges. Many of them simply dont work. Even those that do, you sometimes have to replace ALL of them. A mix of some Epson and some of another brand may give you the results you got. So you have to decide if you will continue to pay Epson's rip off prices or if you will buy a set of compatibles (which costs as much as one epson cartridge), do a one-time complete replacement, and then save money for the life of your printer.
I am using special reusable cartridges from http://www.ccs-digital.com They hold 2/3 more ink than Epson and cost me under $3. The ink is in a separate tank inside the main cartridge. When the ink is empty, I pop out the tank, pop in a new one, and the cartridge automatically resets to full. This is great because Epsons have a habit of reporting out of ink when there is still 10-15% of the ink left, so I can pop in an "empty" cartridge and still get more pages out of it. And I was able to use some of these together with some genuine Epson without problem, though the site says they can't guarantee this will work for all printers.

Epson sx200 One of the colour inks is empty and no print in black


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.

Possible to print only black when colour cartridges are empty?


This printer does not let you print if even one of the cartidges is out of ink. I suggest you replace them and then in the printer properties change your settings to the way you want color to be spent.

Epson C66 won't print without color cartidges


epson printers won't really print if one cartridge is not detected or detected as empty. the only option that i can suggest to you is that, buy a continous ink kit at any ink refilling station in your place. i highly recommend that dont leave a cartridge empty with ink cause it might clog your printhead. using a continous ink system's cartridge is auto reset, whenever the printer says that the cartridge is empty, it will automatically resets itself. ink refill kit comes with 100+ml of ink per color i think. and it is much cheaper using original epson ink.
