Question about Epson Stylus RX680 Color All-in-One InkJet Photo Printer
I have an EPSON Stylus Photo RX685. I only need to print in black & white but the machine doesn't allow me to do it if any other colour is lacking of ink. How can I print only in black & white and how can I make the printer accept No epson cartridges? Thanks

Are you using gen. epson cart? If not then try that first.
Sounds like you have a block black print head there are many posts on that subject.

Print first a nozzle check pattern, self test which they say. Check your manual for your printer, it should be accessible from that if you dont have any manual, go to the epson website and download a manual. Usually the self test would go like this.
While the printer is turned off, you press and hold down the paper feed button, continue holding it down while turning on the printer. It will print the nozzle check pattern standalone. If you see all the colors then the issue your having is a color management issue, if you do not see the cyan, magenta, yellow, black, light magenta and light cyan from that test; then you will need to do 3 consecutive times of Head Cleaning from the maintenance program in your computer. If you have a windows xp it goes like this.
Click on start go to control panel - printers and faxes -
you right click on your printer icon and select printing prefrences. From there, go to maintenance tab and click head cleaning, go through that cycle 3 consecutive times and see if it improved. Good luck....
