Question about Epson Stylus Multifunction Inkjet Printer/ Copier/ Scanner
I changed all ink cartridges today, and I have reloaded them several times trying to fix the problem. The colors work fine. I have realligned, cleaned, etc. etc. And I have gone thru the manufacturers troubleshooter with no success. My daughter has a report due tomorrow, and I can't get the black ink to work.
I was having the same problem. This fixed it:
Lift up the scanner bed (top part) of the printer to expose the cartridges.
Push the red triangle button once. Wait for the cartridge carrier to move to the middle. On the housing of the printer (the non-moving part), there is an arrow that will point to the empty cartridge.
Push the red triangle button again to see if the next cartridge is empty. Repeat this step, noting which cartridges are empty, until the cartridge carrier moves to the right. Now you can replace each cartridge that is empty.
After replacing the empty cartridges, push the red triangle button again, and the carrier will begin moving back and forth (cleaning itself). Once it stops, it should be positioned on the far right side.
Lower the scanner bed to "close" the printer. The ink light should go off and you should be able to print.

Make sure the tape has been removed from the cartridge.
The cartridge could be defective, the only way to tell is go buy a band new black epson cartridge and see if that solves your problem.
I hope this helped.
