The Edge, -Clean the electrical contacts on the printer where the cartridge connects with alcohol. After it dries clean the same contacts with a regular pink, non-abrasive pencil eraser making sure you remove all the debris when done. -Its also possible there is an air bubble preventing the flow of ink. You can try inserting a full cartridge of ink in the printer and letting it sit overnight then running a nozzle clean job or two. Another alternative if you have a syringe you may want to try gently forcing ink into it. If you?re really desperate you can try drilling a small hole into the cartridge to give gravity feeding a hand. BE WARNED the air hole will let ink flow pretty well and you run the chance of making a mess. Before you pull the cartridge out of the printer make sure you cover the hole with tape so the ink doesn?t make even more mess. -Check the cartridge alignment making sure the contacts are mating to the printer. -If it still doesn?t work I would try cleaning your nozzles. Even though I doubt you have clogged nozzles its worth a try because of the following: If you search the Internet you?ll find that this specific model is know for failing to print some or all colors after about 1 ½ to 2 years of use, even with Epson inks. Most of the posts I?ve seen blame it on clogged nozzles but I suspect a good number of them, like yours, have another explanation for their failure. Ink jet printers use resistors to create heat to create a bubble in the ink to eject it out of the nozzle (Bubble jet) or in the case of Epson, vibrating crystals push ink into and out of the nozzles (piezoelectric). We?ve already cleaned the electrical contacts and cleaned the nozzles so what remain are defective nozzles, short between the nozzle and the controller board or a defective controller board. Since the printer is only worth 1 or 2 hundred dollars repairs at a shop or buying these repair parts can easily exceed ½ its cost. Hope something here works for you, I just recently had to toss a great printer too. Let us know what happens and please don?t forget to rate the posting.

Seems like the ink has dried in the print head or the control circuit to make the black ink print, is not working.
See my other post in the ip3000 section re. cleaning the print head and give that a go. I have got a print head doing that right now. If I can't ink to go thru the head thru either warm water washing - next step is to drop Video Head Cleaning fluid ( Iso Propyl achohol) onto the tiny screens on the print head to see if that will works its way through.
If you get ink coming thru the print head, and it still wont print black, then it may be an electronic problem. Other than cleaning the gold contacts on the back of the print head, there probably is not a lot more you can do other than look for a working secondhand pprinter - I love mine ( when its going)

SOURCE: How to remove ink from dryer
None of the chemicals you describe should be used. The heat or spark from the motor could cause a explosion.
Put some old laundry material in there and run it multiple loads with no heat it will eventually wear it off.

Unfortunately you cannot override this behaviour without installing a valid cartridge in the printer.
Epson printers do not have this sort of functionality as it would leave the printhead open to damage and foam clogging.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

you will need to take the two bolts out of the strut that connects to the spindle backing plate.this will let the backing plate pull out enough to pull the cv axle out.
