Manufacturers have started putting expiration dates in the interface of their ink cartridges, others are selling the cartridges as "re-manufactured" but the printers refuse to accept them after that embedded date has expired.

This has even led to "new" cartridges that have been on the store shelf too long being rejected.

I have an epson sylus sx215 and it will not print anything out in black even though I have sufficient black ink but I am low on coloured ink, is this the problem? It used to give me an option to justuse...

The SX215 will not print if it thinks one or more of the cartridge is out of ink or missing. So if you are getting any error messages to this effect this will be the reason.

If however your printer is going through the motions of printing but not putting any black ink to paper it is likely that the printhead is partially dried or blocked. This can normally be resolved by running a couple of head cleaning cycles from your printer/printer software. I have covered this topic in more detail here if you are interested.

Hope this helps.
