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.

SOURCE: The black ink will not print on my Epson Stylus

I have an Epson sx600fw which has had a problem printing with black ink. I spent alot of money trying genuine and cheap inks as official advice is to replace with a genuine epson cartridge and clean up to 6 times before seeking further help. Tried this to no avail. By accident I found that if you set the paper type to glossy or photo then miraculously the black will work but in this setting it is slow. Epson replace the printer under warranty but I have just received a new one and it has exactly the same problem. I am slightly reluctant to buy another set of genuine inks to waste through 6 cleaning cycles as they are over £35 so am not sure what to do but I guess I will approach Epson again.

SOURCE: changed black ink cartridge for epson stylus d120 but not working

Usually when this happens the printer fails to goes through the motions of the printing process, kind of stands still with indicator lights just blinking away. This could be as a result of either of these scenarios.
i.                     Ink cartridge has developed incompatibility or is incompatible
The Solution is to try an older/another cartridge (doesn’t matter if ink is finished. You must replace cartridge one at a time). If lights stop blinking it confirms that your cartridge has become incompatible or developed incompatibility. Also if your printer is the type that can work with only one cartridge, remove one after the other (closing back the lid/cover) to determine which in the set (black or color) has become incompatible. At the instance the incompatible one is removed and you close the lid, the blinking will stop (for printers that can print with one ink cartridge only). Just replace the incompatible one and start printing again. In most cases the issue is always with one cartridge. But if both are affected, you have to replace both. Because of this type of problem, always keep used cartridges somewhere safe; they come in handy for this type of troubleshooting.
ii.                   The Cartridge electronic panel  is dirty
The electronic panel on the cartridge that makes contact with the cartridge carrier inside the printer is dirty and needs cleaning.  This electronic panel is front part of the cartridge with copper “dots”.
The Solution is to try to clean this panel with a piece of folded tissue paper soaked in a bit of methylated spirit. Also try to clean the area in the cartridge carrier/holder that makes contact with the cartridge’s electronic panel (Usually this is more difficult). If you cannot reach it with your fingers, use a stick or something with tissue wrapped around it. Allow to dry well and return the cartridges, close the cover. The blinking should stop if the electronic panel is the issue. Once the blinking stops the printer will print.

SOURCE: Epson Stylus Photo R260 Ink bag fix

Yes, like I said before...I have the same problem with most of my EPSON printers. Buy a Printer not from EPSON. They are inferior quality.

Black ink wont print


Clean the head off where the black is with rubbing alcohol and a qtip. If it won't detect the black cartridge and you went into the printer settings and enabled the black to print as well as the color, then the printer sensor that senses new cartridges and amount of ink level is defective and, unless it is under warranty, it's not worth fixing.

epson.com, actually you can print using black ink only, but you have to reset the color ink for it to register as full. :) or you can freeze the ink counter using the ssc service utility before the other ink rans out. :)

Printing in black only


Are you using genuine Epson ink? Is it under a year old/ If so you have a warranty repair. Make sure you peeled off the tape from inks. Run a cleaning cycle. If still no color, you may need printheads. Not worth repairing.
