yes. some printers won't print if they don't have all colors full, even if they dont need them at that time. bad luck ... refill all of them. I have photo R265 and one color is gist beggining to run out ... I can stand on my head and it won't print anything.
You have to run a head cleaning cycle:
Follow these steps to clean the print head:
Make sure the Stylus CX is on and the ink light is off.
Hold down the ink button for 3 seconds until the On light starts flashing. The Stylus CX runs a head cleaning cycle and the On light flashes.
Never turn off the Stylus CX while head cleaning is in progress. You may damage it.
When the On light stops flashing, turn off the Stylus CX.
Load letter-size paper in the sheet feeder.
Press the ink and 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
Nozzle check pattern with gaps
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.
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.
epson.com, actually you can print using black ink only, but you have to reset the color ink for it to register as full. :) or you can freeze the ink counter using the ssc service utility before the other ink rans out. :)
