My printer is not printing text in neither colour nor grayscale.
Printing is printing images fine but not text, this is happening when I print out docs from all applications (PDF, Word, web etc) - it's driving me mad! Cartridges are full and paper is fine. Printer has also recently been slow to grasp the paper although the wheels are turning...not sure if these are connected issues? Anyone know how to fix? Many thanks!

Try changing printing preferences/properties. Click on option for color, then click on box for "black ink only" or similar. Try now. If you still cannot print after changing preferences/properties, you will need to replace color ink cartridge due to manufacturer's built-in software that prevents printing when ink is low. Great for the ink companies!!!
Typically, the quality of images and text on websites is very low resolution to keep the file size down in order for them to load more quickly on your screen. Just because it looks good on your screen doesn't mean it will print the same. There are just fewer dots per inch in the text and images and they can appear faint and low quality when printed. Look for a print icon on some web pages as it will be at least formatted properly to fit the page and some are of better quality than printing what is on the screen.
When it comes to emails, if the text is in a color, especially blue, they will tend to print light. Change your printer settings to print grayscale and that should help sharpen things up about as much as is possible.
Epson ink jet printers require all of the ink cartridges to have ink in them in order to print any color, black and white, or grayscale images. Epson printers contain a permanent print head that needs to be charged with all colors to work. Even when users are printing black text only, a small amount of color ink is used to keep the print head charged for color printing and prevent air bubbles from entering the color print nozzles which can damage the print head. Therefore, once one of the cartridges are expended, the printer signals you to replace the cartridge in order for printing to continue.
Yes.There should be settings to enhance that in your print driver properties page.
Easiest way to access that is to open a document and click "file' then 'print and that will bring up your printer options.
Look around the print driver for ways to enhance your prints.
Most drivers have several options in graphics areas to make adjustments.
You can access printers from the controle panel and also right click the printer and select properties to access it.
There definatly are ways to adjust that.
Hope this helps you some.
It's one of two problems, either the nozzles in the cartridge are clogged or your printing preferences are set to "print in grayscale." To clear the nozzles try running the printer through a "deep cleaning" cycle from the printer's maintenance screen (available from the printer's properties). To check the printing preferences go to the printer's properties, as well, from Start > Control Panel > Printers & Faxes > right-click on the printer and choose Printing Preferences. Make sure to uncheck "Print In Grayscale."
