SOURCE: Cannot print in black only

It is not wise to leave the cartridges empty, causes permanent print-head damage on the empty color area. However, if you want to use the other color, say "black", bypassing the cartridge check is simply resetting the counter of the printer... download the utility file "sscserve.exe" you can search it on the internet. Install it then choose your printer on its list box, then by right-clicking on the printer icon of the utility at the bottom right of your window... you should be able to see what you need. Happy printing!!!

SOURCE: Printer will not print black, but will not let me replace black cartridge

Had the same problem but this worked for me. To force a cartridge change, press and hold down the PAPER FEED button for at least 5 seconds as suggested here:

I then changed the black cartridge, even though I hadn't used much ink from the old cartridge and the computer was showing it as three quarters full.

SOURCE: printing in black & white when color cartridge ran out

One of the possible reason why you can't print black in white because Epson ink jet printers require all of the ink cartridges to have ink in them in order to print any color, black and white, or grayscale images. More than that Epson printers contain a permanent print head that needs to be charged with all colors to work. Even when users are printing black text only, a small amount of color ink is used to keep the print head charged for color printing and prevent air bubbles from entering the color print nozzles which can damage the print head.

SOURCE: epson stylus C88 won t print color ink black is

If you have carried out 4 to 5 head cleans, waited about 8 hours and done another 3 or head cleans doing nozzle checks after each clean (as recommended by the manual) and there is still no improvement then you will need a third party head cleaning solution such as this one:

Other makes & brands are available just google "inkjet head cleaning solution" Hope this helps.

SOURCE: My Epson Stylus NX 400 is not printing.

no it cannot. Those multi-colored cartridge system requires that you put in every single color, AND ensure that they are not empty before they will print. Even if all you want is a black and white copy.

How to install new ink cartridges and how to take out old ink cartridges


If you have some cartridges that aren't empty, first make sure that the printer is on. Then press the Menu button and navigate to the Maintenance menu then select Ink Cartridge Replacement. Press OK. Make sure that the document cover is closed then lift the entire scanner unit (grip it on the sides). If the cartridge carrier moves, wait for it to stop.

Then squeeze the tab at the back of a specific cartridge and pull it straight up. (Have one finger on the tab and another finger or thumb pinching the opposite side of the top of the cartridge.) Prepare your new color cartridge by shaking it 4-5 times then open the bag. Remove the yellow tape from the cartridge without touching any other parts of the cartridge. Then insert the cartridge into that slot and press down until it clicks. Repeat this for the rest of the ink cartridges.

Finally, lower the scanner unit and press OK on the keypad to exit the maintenance mode. Wait for the printer to do its ink system test routine. Cancel any print or scan jobs that were in progress before you changed the ink.

I hope this helps. Pictures to go with the above description are in the user's guide starting on Page 177. It's available here: https://files.support.epson.com/pdf/wf2520/wf2520ug.pdf .

Epson WF 7010 sitting for several months -- wont print black -- colors ok -- print did a firmware update whne put back in service


Inkjet cartridges dry out and fail when printers sit unused for extended periods of time. The black ink cartridge is probably no longer usable. Updating firmware won't have any effect on the issue.

Epson wf-2530 - cyan is printing out as a pale pink even after inserting a new cartridhe


My suggestion is to pull the cartridges check your ink collector pad. This is where the extra ink gets wiped from the cartridges as it goes by. make sure that the pad is not pooling up check the bottoms of your cartridges and wipe them clean also and do a quick cleaning inside if you see any extra dust, ink etc.. just wipe it clean. then power your printer off and back on again and see if that helps. Hope it does the trick for you.

Why is my WF 7620 using excessive black ink?


Check the print settings. Do you have it set to Photo, Best or economy? Usually this is done in the Epson application and/or at the print window. Higher settings will use more ink.

I only want to print black color but was asked to replace color inks.


Unfortunatly, because its a color ink jet machine you will need to replace the ink to print anything. The way its designed is that it has one printer head for all four cartridges.

When you replace the color ink you will deffinetly be able to print.
