    Sounds like the head might be blocked. How often is the printer used and when did the problem start? Also did you change the black cartridge?

    did you refill a black cartridge? Or is this a new printer?

Is it nothing black? Try this. Move cartridge to parking position. Whith only black ink tank instlaled, **** the ink from the outlet pipe of head cleaning mechanic. If there is ink, the black head is not clog. Then try to print. If it's still no black ink printing, may be the electricity of black head is lost contact. so, the micro pump can't work good.

SOURCE: epson sx200 One of the colour inks is empty and no print in black

Hi, this is not a solution because I don't think there is one apart from buying new inks. Epson and all other inkjet printers do this to prevent the coloured print head nozzles from getting blocked. If they are not used for a long time the ink dries up and blocks the nozzles. Epson recommends printing at least once a month with all colours to prevent this. Printing in black only option will only work if the colored inks are OK. Whenever the printer is turned on it performs a head clean, this is why the coloured inks get used over time even though they are not used for printing.

My epson printer is printing the black from all the other colors, and ignoring the black ink cartridge


If you are printing "graphic" images ie photos, pdf's, fancy type-faces, lines or grayscale - your print is defined as colour and will be printed using colour shaded with black.

Epson cx3200 wrong colour


It is possible that when the printer senses not enough black ink it will swap to using the colour tanks to try and make a BLACK.

It is also possible that you have mistakenly adjusted a setting in the epson printer program to use the colour tanks to print black and white photographs.

Either of those would certainly cause the problem you describe

Epson 1290 - I just want to print in black and white


Unfortunately, Epson printers demand that both black and colour cartridges are OK before the printer will work at all. Now, if you are really sure that you only want to print black, the most cost-effective solution for you is to buy an Epson Chip resetter on E-Bay. This will reset your empty colour cartridge to "full", as far as the printer is concerned. You can then happily continue with your black-only printing.
