This is a known problem with this printer, functions such as fax and copy will also be unavailable if the ink is low.

The low ink alert will appear even though the cartridge is not empty.

Here is the solution:

The ink cartridge has a sensor on the bottom, between the nozzles.
cut a small piece of tape and tape over the sensor.
The printer will now think the cartridge is full.

This will allow you to use every function of the printer regardless of how much ink you have. The cartridge will truly be empty when your print outs come out blank.

This is a normal condition. Even if you have the printer set to black only print, a fault condition will occur if the sensor on any one of the cartridges reports the cartridge as being empty.

Sorry. It's best to keep a spare cartridge of each color and if you do a lot of Black and White printing, maybe two or three black cartridges.

Why doesn't my black ink work in my Epson WorkForce 600 series after replacing the black ink cartridge?


The Epson printer may only use genuine ink cartridges which contain a chip so that you cannot fill the cartridge with ink or use non genuine ink cartridges.

OR

Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.

Printer not working so put new Color ink in - red light is on the black ink. Changed printing preferences to Color Ink and deleted all documents in queue and also turned off computer and still the printer...


part of your prob is that the way ink jet printers work, (according to the tech support training that I rcv'd about ten yrs ago from Canon) is that the printer "builds" the image or character by adding color to the black ink (for most of the jobs) in order to create "depth", so you will need to replace or (HINT: you can sometimes reset the cartridge by lifting the locktab and then reseating it) using the utility to replace the black cartridge. good luck!

Black ink cartridge holder not working , can not print with black ink cartridge holder, when i use the colored ink holder printer works ok


The problem you are describing is with the black ( BC-10 ) print head and not with the printer.

1. Check your black ink tank and be sure it is not dry.

2. Run the printer through one DEEP cleaning cycle and see if that improves the print.

If your black ink tank is full, and the deep cleaning cycle produces no improvement, you will need to replace the BC-10 print head.

The black ink print is very very faint


Indicates that the printer is using only color ink to create a black color. Check printer settings to see if you can set it to use only black cartridge. Also try printing with only the black cartridge inside if the printer permits, this way you can be sure if the black print head is faulty.

I hva black ink in my printer but the colour ink has run out. I only want to print in black but it wont work


Too often the printers must have ink in all cartridges, or they won't print at all. Having black ink is not enough; you need to replace the color cartridge(s) to get your printer to work again.
