Re: epson DX4000 printer
Hi.. Try this. Removed the color cartridge. Open the printer settings under Quality and check the box that says print in "greyscale" or "black and white. This will rule out and color cart problem and also change the printer settings. You will have to change this back to print in Color, Hope this helped........ Squipps

There is a function in many printers that lets you print in the single colour of your choice. Check every tab and every "advanced..." dialog box you get when you are about to print. Then go to the printer's properties in the control panel and check whether there's anything like that
Many printers let you print black with black ink, OR alternatively make black by mixing the other three colours CMY. Look for that setting in the same places and deactivate it
To print in all black, you can change a setting through the computer to tell the printer to only use the black ink. This is better than putting black ink where the color ink normally would go as that would cause the shading to be wrong and potentially ruin the documents.
If you have enough black ink in the printer, before you finalize the printing process make sure you have black and white only selected.
This will allow you to print without getting access to the ink cartridge holders.
Good luck hope this helps.
Unfortunately, Epson printers demand that both black and colour cartridges are OK before the printer will work at all. Now, if you are really sure that you only want to print black, the most cost-effective solution for you is to buy an Epson Chip resetter on E-Bay. This will reset your empty colour cartridge to "full", as far as the printer is concerned. You can then happily continue with your black-only printing.
One of the possible reason why you can't print black in white because Epson ink jet printers require all of the ink cartridges to have ink in them in order to print any color, black and white, or grayscale images. More than that Epson printers contain a permanent print head that needs to be charged with all colors to work. Even when users are printing black text only, a small amount of color ink is used to keep the print head charged for color printing and prevent air bubbles from entering the color print nozzles which can damage the print head.
