If this is a color printer, then you cannot use it without the "Black" cartridge.
Most printer manufacturers will pull from the "Black" ink to print black on color images. They do this to save on creating a "processed black" from the color inks.
Just curious, are you using a "CMYK" system? (Cyan, Magenta,Yellow and Black inks)

I have an Epson sx600fw which has had a problem printing with black ink. I spent alot of money trying genuine and cheap inks as official advice is to replace with a genuine epson cartridge and clean up to 6 times before seeking further help. Tried this to no avail. By accident I found that if you set the paper type to glossy or photo then miraculously the black will work but in this setting it is slow. Epson replace the printer under warranty but I have just received a new one and it has exactly the same problem. I am slightly reluctant to buy another set of genuine inks to waste through 6 cleaning cycles as they are over £35 so am not sure what to do but I guess I will approach Epson again.

ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine Cartridges. !!!!!!!!
In Purchasing Epson's CX 5400, CX4600, & CX7400 and more, I found out that Epson does not like Generic Printer Cartridges. I also Purchased a Brother. That also does not like Generic Print Cartridges. Color that should be Yellow, will turn out Green, Blue Brown, etc.
These printers have a CHIP that will detect if it is Generic or Genuine. When they see it’s Generic Cartridges, it will print lines thru the words, stripes across the picture and also do a mix match with the colors. It also will not let you print anything, if any of the cartridges are empty.
I wanted to print only Black, and would not let me, because I did not have any ink in one of my cyan cartridges. Go figure.
That's what these Companies do., so they can keep selling the ink cartridges. Some Printers, are able to use Generic, and some are refillable. Some you can refill them up yourself and I heard, quite MESSY.
So I learned, thru trial and error, that you must use the ORIGINAL Genuine Cartridges for these PRINTERS. Some people say some models work fine compatible, but not mine.......
I had to replace the printer, but Epson, Lexmark & Brothers are always on sale. My Brother & Epson cost me $50.00 with Rebate. .
This is the only advice I can give you. If you find this helpful, pls rate me.
Thanks and Good Luck :0)

Find the NX110 in the printers section of the control panel. Then right click your printer and choose "Printing Preferences" then the "Maintenance" tab. In there you will see a button for 'Replace ink cartrige'. Select that and it will take you through it step by step and even move the print heads to the correct position so you can change the ink.
