Printer ink full but will only print color on doc not black txt..


Epsons love to be used, hate to stand around. They employ a ceramic printhead that will tolerate thousands of pages and do them all well but not using it for a while (sometimes only two weeks) can cause the printhead to dry out and never return to usefulness.
About the only thing you can do is to repeatedly run the printhead cleaning routine over and over again. If you are lucky, Epson allows you to which path (Black or color only) to attempt to clean. Good luck; I have had to retire several Epsons after a fairly short life for this problem.

After cartridge change, the printer will not work


you might not like it, but here it is, it is the truth

Epson ink jet printers require all of the ink cartridges to have ink in them in order to print any color, black and white, or grayscale images. Epson printers contain a permanent print head that needs to be charged with all colors to work. Even when users are printing black text only, a small amount of color ink is used to keep the print head charged for color printing and prevent air bubbles from entering the color print nozzles which can damage the print head. Therefore, once one of the cartridges are expended, the printer signals you to replace the cartridge in order for printing to continue.

Printer cartridge problem


I have a 440 and have had the same problem. Of course, I have been using cartridges from Printpal, Inkgrabber, etc. that are not official Epson. I have found that it takes several cleanings and after the cartridge has been in the position for the ink to go down it will start. My last order from Printpal said to set all the cartridges in the position they are in when installed in the printer for several days prior to installation. Of course, every cleaning of the print head uses up more of your ink. You don't have much choice though.
