If the firmware update doesn't work, you can reset this error.
Unplug unit. Remove offending cartridge. Plug unit back in, wait until all startup noises have stopped. Open lid and reinstall cartridge. This will solve the fault as long as the sensor is working.
Also, please be aware, you should not have to change a cartridge if it says "Near Empty", only if it says "Ink Empty Magenta".
Also, please make sure none of your other cartridges are empty. I have seen this over and over. Two cartridges empty at the same time, and the person replaces one of them but thinks they actually replaced the other one.
Turn the power off and pull all the cartridges out. Look a the side of the cartridge, you should see a window with a little plastic tab sticking out. This tab should be blocked by a black float inside the cartridge. If you cannot see the float, and the tab is clear with no ink in it and no float tab blocking it, it means the cartridge is empty even if you still see some ink in the bottom.
To be sure plug the machine in without any cartridges. When all the noises have stopped, open the lid and install the cartridges. If you're still getting an error saying either a cartridge is not installed or is empty, then one of your cartridges is empty. Redo the previous paragraph.

To Fix the stupid Cyan, just unplug the printer, it may take more that one time unplug, its stupid problem, printer needs to reset, I have a full ink of Cyan but it says this "There is more than one Cyan" on the dispaly on the printer, and windows that its missing. I don't know what idiots programmed the printer. but screw them.

Sorry to say but NO you can't print if there are other inks which ae empty, thats one safety features of epson printers to prevent nozzle clogging. change the other ink carts as well for you to continue printing.

Much as I'd love to say that Epson are being a bunch of "robbing gits" as you put it, in this instance they are actually helping protect your investment. If the printer was allowed to print without a valid ink supply on one of the ink types it would soon fill the printhead with either foam or air. Either promotes clogging. Now, whilst you might be certain that you're using just black, the printer may be programmed to use a small amount of the other colours (depends on the settings) so common sense often needs dispensing with. It's a pain in the backside, granted but it is intended to stop you from having much bigger issues later on. Appreciate that's not a "fix" but hopefully it explains why you're in the bind you are. My advice would be to purchase a cheap mono laser, especially if your printing it primarily of black text type... It's cheaper and you don't have to worry about consumables you don't use. Martin
