Remove ink cartridges one by one and put it back in. If same thing happens, try
to do head cleaning and nozzle checks consecutively from the computer.
Start -> Control Panel -> Printers & Faxes (Windows XP) / Printers (Windows Vista) -> Printer Icon (right click) -> Printing Preferences -> Maintenance
You should be able to see nozzle check, click it and follow the prompt. Line patterns that corresponds to the colors of the ink cartridges would be printed. If breaks on the patterns appear, continue with head cleaning. Try to do this about 3 times until all patterns are complete.

Did you change from matte black to photo black? Or vice versa? If so you have to use the ink conversion kit that came with your printer and draw out the old ink and install the new black in cartridge. Try page 113 in your owners manual. I am having a similar problem but with the light cyan and it says "set ink cartridge".

If it is within warranty then contact epson support. If not and normal head cleaning doesnt work then try a print head cleaning solution such as:

I've had similar fun(?) with my Epson. The best solution that I've found is getting by a drafting (or crafts) supply store and getting a jar of Rapiograph, Koohinor, or drafting pen cleaner. With any kind of luck all you'll need to do is 'flood' the print head a bit (let the solution pool around the cartridge intakes), and set a few minutes, then do the Nozzle check.
The next step if that doesn't get it, is to get an old 'empty' cartridge, add a teaspoon or so to the cartridge, then insert as usual- be quick, as the ink inside has been greatly diluted!
Cycle the printer off & on several times allowing 3-5 minutes between the first & second cycles. What happens during cycling is the printer 'charges' then 'empties' the internal ink tubes; the solution is drawn back and forth, washing out the tubes and jets.
Make sure that your cartridges are 20+% full when using them to print. Epson was one of the bad guys that showed empty ink supplies when they were still full.
Hope this helps.
