I have solved this problem on my sx515w. I hadn't used the printer for a while and when I did after about 3 months the black wouldn't print. Even after trying several different new cartridges, driver reinstals, updates, automatic head cleaning operations..... It turned out that the printer head had ink dried onto it due to lack of use.

What you need to do is to drop a few drops of nail polish remover (yes as in Acetone solution) on to the foam cleaning dock, located to the far right of the printer rail. When the printer is resting, the ink jet module covers the dock. TO expose the dock, set the printer to the 'clean head' operation and the ink jet module will go to the far left, when this happens pull the power cord out so it stays out of the way (don't worry the printer will reset fine afterwards).So now the module is out of the way drop in some cleaing fluid on to the sponge dock. Then you are ready to run the automatic clean head operation at least 20 times. Do a test print each time until full print quality is resumed.

Oh and it is worth cleaning the sponge dock with tissue as it gets heavily soiled with ink (using the 'clean head' - turn off half way operation just described above). Remeber to replenish the nail polish remover. This should sort it.

Yackshimash.

Cheers

SOURCE: epson stylus C88 won t print color ink black is

If you have carried out 4 to 5 head cleans, waited about 8 hours and done another 3 or head cleans doing nozzle checks after each clean (as recommended by the manual) and there is still no improvement then you will need a third party head cleaning solution such as this one:

Other makes & brands are available just google "inkjet head cleaning solution" Hope this helps.

Epson SX515W black ink jet blocked. Anyway to clear it myself?


Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out in the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, thenprint head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer thanreplace the print head.

I have a Mac Book. Recently installed an all-in-one epson sx515w. Whenever I try to print, a popup window says ''remaining ink level. Then, I get the message ''printer currently off line'' Can anyone...


First of all, check to make sure your printer's USB cable is securely connected in your Macbook's USB port.

Next, make sure your Epson SX515W has the latest drivers installed for your current version of Mac OS X
Link:
Mac OS X Drivers for Epson SX515W

If you already have the updated printer drivers for your Epson SX515W already installed,
go into System Preferences> Print & Fax and see if the printer is displayed in the Printer window. If it is, click the "-" Minus button and remove your current printer.
* Click the "+" Plus button and re-add that printer.
Once you do, make to set it as the default printer.
- Now attempt to print a test page from any document you have.

See if this does the trick. If if does not, just let me know.

Regards.
