Try this really quick and see.
uninstall the printer completely, take out the the inks and replace them. then follow the initial steps you used in installing the printer when you bought it. If it doesn't work, try installing it on another computer. Cheers!

Not sure about Epson but I had the same problem and the store where I buy my ink said that a lot of the printer companies require all the color cartridges with ink in them to work. My color use to disappear even if I just pushed black and they said that was the way they were made . They sell printers quite cheap but make their money on the ink. I got rid of mine and purchased a black only ink jet and it hardly uses any ink at all. Its a powder. You can copy many copies on eighty dollars worth of ink where the cartridges I went through several hundred dollars a year.

White line on copies


Hi
I think it does need 'printhead cleaning'.The printer uses a lens on the Laser Scanning Unit.So instead of emitting ink,the Scanning Unit uses a laser beam directed straight to the drum of the toner cartridge.
Clean the lens using a cotton wool.


Hope it helps.Thanks

Yes. You cannot use the printer even in black and white, until the color cartridge is replaced. They are designed to check the levels of the both black and color cartridges.

Photocopying


According to " HP Officejet R, PSC 500 and Color Copier - General Copying Issues and Solutions", under the problem heading "Black is not Black", notes that:

"The unit will perform mono (or black) copies using the color cartridge to create a composite black in Normal and Best modes. This is necessary to create the correct grayscale shades. NOTE: The HP PSC 500 all-in-one product cannot perform black copies. Scan the image in and print it out in greyscale.

The color cartridge may be out of one color of ink. Run a self-test page to verify that all the colors are there. Replace the cartridge if they are not."

In other words, the device only uses the black ink cartridge when used as a computer printer. When used as a stand-alone copier, it uses the color ink cartridge, and all three ink colors must be present and working to give a black and white copy. Perhaps you can refill the color cartridge with black ink in all chambers?
