Sir,
Try to cleaning the print head. We even turned it off between uses to ensure the print head correctly parked on the rubber boot in the ink-purge area.
Thanks Good Luck

SOURCE: the head is dry....

To greater regret without special preparation you will not be able by itself to solve this problem.
You may try to execute procedure of a cleanings heads 5-6 once.
After that you may to bring him in to service. But it very difficult to repair and expensive.

Epson cx5500 prints only with black cartridge???


Yes it will still print with black provided that your computer still detects the colored cartridge tanks.If you are certain that there is still some ink left on the colored ones, take them one by one and shake them hard as if you are trying to distribute the ink evenly. After that, you need to do a test print to utilize the colored inks.

Black ink not printing


You have to run a head cleaning cycle:
Follow these steps to clean the print head:

  1. Make sure the Stylus CX is on and the cp_light_183_er.gif ink light is off.

  2. Hold down the cp_button_48_er.gif ink button for 3 seconds until the cp_light_1.gif On light starts flashing. The Stylus CX runs a head cleaning cycle and the cp_light_1.gif On light flashes.

    alert_caution.gif Caution: Never turn off the Stylus CX while head cleaning is in progress. You may damage it.

  3. When the cp_light_1.gif On light stops flashing, turn off the Stylus CX.

  4. Load letter-size paper in the sheet feeder.

  5. Press the cp_button_48_er.gif ink and cp_button_1.gif On buttons together and hold them down for about 3 seconds. The Stylus CX turns on and prints a test pattern, which includes a nozzle check. Shown below are some examples of what the nozzle check may look like:

    Nozzle check pattern with no gaps im_158_er.gif Nozzle check pattern with gaps im_159_er.gif

  6. Examine the nozzle check. If it does not look like the nozzle check pattern with no gaps as shown above, repeat steps 2 through 6.

alert_note.gif Note: If you don't see any improvement after cleaning the print head three times, turn off the Stylus CX and wait overnight. This lets any dried ink soften. Then try cleaning the print head again.

If you do not use your Stylus CX often, it is a good idea to print a few pages at least once a month to maintain good print quality.

If all of the lights on the control panel are flashing and you see the letter E in the Copy window, the print head may not be able to move back and forth freely. Follow these steps:
  1. Turn off the Stylus CX.

  2. Open the scanner.

  3. Remove any jammed paper or other obstructions from the paper path.

  4. Carefully lower the scanner.

  5. Turn the Stylus CX back on.
alert_note.gif Note: If you can't remove the paper or foreign object yourself, do not use force and do not disassemble the Stylus CX.

And the last thing you could do, is to check if the rod where your carriage slide is dry...if so put a little bit of oil on it
