Help me please my Epson Stylus SX215 black ink won`t print. I cleaned the head 3-5 times and the nozzle but it still wont`t print black , it is brand new.Is it because the printer didn`t work maybe 2 months. Yesterday i bought all inks and the other are working , the black no :[ please help
It could be the print setting on the application where you're printing from. Before you send your print job and hit "Print" button on your computer, check in the Printing Preferences and make sure it is not set to print "Using black ink only.".
refill of cartridge several times is not that advisable. time comes that ur cartridge will be damaged. possibility of damaged:
1. the circuit itself in the cartridge might be broken
2. overload of ink.
1. replace a new one or secure other cartridge w/ same spec of ur current cartridge.
When using refilled
print cartridges, the Estimated Ink level and the Printer Status Window
may indicate that the print cartridge is out of ink. Either continue to
use the print cartridge until print quality degrades, or replace the
print cartridge with a new HP print cartridge.
The methods of replacing the ink cartridge of the printer follows here:
Open the printer cover
The printer ink carriage will automatically goes to center
Once the carriage is in the center, the printer was ready to replace the ink.
Pull the down slowly the ink tank off the carriage..
Remember the place where the color/black position. Remove each tank one at a time, and replace the ink with a new one.
Close the printer cover and it now ready to printer.

You're jets are pretty much shot. Have you recently used generic ink or used ink that has sat for a while? I had almost the same model and bought my ink in bulk not thinking about it and same thing occurred. Time to upgrade to a new printer...sorry.
what are you trying to print in black? the best way to test out a black ink is to open word pad and type some thing random and print it and see if that works. if you have a all in one printer u might have 2 inks one color and one black in the printer
did you take the tape off the new cartridge and is the print head burned out for the black? if you installed the diagnostic's on it then run it and see what it says, otherwise expect the print head to be cooked, however it is possible to get a bad ink cartridge try tapping it on your finger and see if ink comes out if it does not then the ink cartridge is dried out or no good, about %15 of print cartridges are bad on just about any brand printer some more than others.
Some of them do. Try going into the printer properties and disabling bi-directional support. This will not allow the printer to check. HP has set some printers to not function if its disabled, but hopefully yours is not one of them.
