My epson C62 printer is refusing to print black. I have run the head cleaning a number of times and also changed the black ink cartridge (altho I am pretty sure this was at least 1/2 full). Still nothing.

You may have blocked print head nozzles. Try the printer maintenance to clear the printer nozzles. After several deep cleaning attempts and there is no improvements in the printthen a new print head is required. A new print head maybe expensive and it maybe more cost effective to purchase anew printer.
Your inkjets are clogged, use a damp sponge to clean heads (located where the bottom of the cartridge is) put a paper towel underneath the cartridge holder to soak up water, allow to completely dry then run ink test (head cleaner) through printer utility...its worked multiple times for me
I use cheap replacement cartridges about 20$ for 3 color/5 black....the printer usually doesnt recognize the cartridges ink level but it still prints......do you use actual epson replacements? If you use cheaper replacements you might have gotten some with dud chips...prob the cartridges fault, not your printer
epson uses pigmented ink and compatibles use dyes and thus if the paper is not of good quality then you can have this problem.
do the following
change the paper and try.
As there will be ink in the head and the ink feed tubes , print some 10 -15 copies of all color prints so that the original ink starts to get into the head and then the paper.
this should solve your problem
Also use your printer every 2 -3 days if you dont have any prints then give a noozle check and then switch off the printer. This will avoid the printer from doing a head clean very time you switch on the printer and also the ink will give you more output as there is less amount of head cleaning
