Re: Black ink won't print (3e)
Try a "hard restart", which simply means unplugging the power cord and replugging it after a few seconds have passed. If that does not work, then rerun the CD you used when you originally installed the printer. Both techniques reprogram the printer to certain extent. Hope one of these methods works for you.

You can only use the black ink cartridge without the color ink. But no need to replace them in your printer.
When you print just choose black and white for the printed text must be black not colored. But if you still received such notification...just try to replace the color ink cartridge to continue printing
As per my experience. printer with exclusive black ink alone will damage the printer easily due to unbalance printing of ink
The black print head is clogged. The reason why the black is clogged and not the photo black or any colors is that the black is pigment ink and the photo black and colors are dye based ink. The pigment ink is a particulate formulation that binds up when water is evaporated out of the ink. You need to buy a new print head the fix the problem. You can buy a new print head for $75 from precision roller.com.
Sounds like a badly clogged nozzle. If you are using aftermarket/refilled cartridges, the changes are the ink is not up to manufacturer specs and has dried and clogged the nozzle. The best way to clear this is to take a new black ink OEM cartridge and run the deep cleaning a number of times (at least 3) to see if the nozzle can be cleared. If you continue to use non-OEM cartridges, I would keep a set of OEM cartridges around for nozzle clearing purposes. Also, take the aftermarket ink cartridges back to the vendor and either get an upgraded cartridge or refund.
Let me know if this corrects the problem. Thanks.
The black is the first to wear out on these printheads, you will need a new printhead, QY6-0049-000.
You will only waste inks trying to clean or deep clean, the best bet is to replace the printhead and if all else is ok you will get many more trouble free prints and better quality color prints.
Do you mean the large black ink as in the 3e vs. the 6? If so, the large black, 3e, is a pigment based ink and the printer should only use it when print text and black and white things. The 6 black is a dye based ink and the printer should only use it when printing photos.
I had removed and reinstalled the empty 3e cartridge. Sorry for the Confusion. I hadn't put a new 3e cartrige in until today. Them I ran " deep clean" twice. The printer works fine. I still don't understand why the printer wouldn't print color, when I was had set the printer to print in color when my 3e cartridge was empty and all colors including the 6 black showed full.
installed a new Print-Head, but that was no changes. I use refill ink, and it seams the BlackInkTank is not exactly on the Printhead and it is Air in the Pipe, i take the Printhead and the Ink-Cardridge in the Bathroom, and press the Ink-cardrige on the Printhead and take a hard breath and blow in the Air-Holes of the Ink-Cardrige until black ink come out of the Printhead, reinstall in the Printer, end it works well.
