Resetting the Epson Ink Monitoring System -
Even though the CFS maintains a constant level of ink in the cartridges, the Epson monitoring system will signal that the cartridges are empty after a cartridge full of ink has been used. This ink level information is stored on the Intelligent cartridge chip. These cartridge chips have to be reset with out lifting the cartridges. This is done with Inksupply.com Auto Reset Chips. On older Epson printers, before the Intelligent cartridge, it is done mechanically by removing and re-inserting the Inksupply.com switch activators. CFS cartridges must be reset without lifting them.
Previous Reset Methods -
The resetting methods have evolved over the past couple of years. First the Swedish Reset method was used, then the Equalizer Program, then the F-16 Chip Resetter, and now the Auto Reset Chips.
Hope this helps you. Good luck!

i had this happen to me twice with two different people, it is highly possible that your black inks are defective, its also highly possible that one of the other inks are causing this error. take them all out, and put one and see what happens, do this one at a time until you see something screwey.
also possible, the contacts on the printhead are dirty or are pushed in.
also possible, bad printhead.
