It seems thre is a problem with the printhead which is not communicating with the cartridge properly.Could be a hardware issue.You should consider taking it to Epson Service center.
As,if software problem it would have been solved by reinstalling it.

I installed a new black ink cartridge and now it won't print black even though it shows its full on in levels


If your black cartridge was empty for any length of time before you replaced it, even if it was still installed in the printer, chances are that the black print head nozzle has dried ink in it. Cleaning may or may not resolve the problem, but cleaning also uses obscene amounts of ink. Epson printers are notorious for clogs since they have some of the smallest print head nozzle sizes (thus their high dpi resolution).
There are some Youtube videos that suggest ways to clean severely clogged Epson print heads. I cannot vouch for them as I have never tried them, but you can view them and decide for yourself.

Lexmark 300S is not printing black and all my ink is full. Whats the prob


Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head. This model Canon/Epson printer may only let you use genuine Canon/Epson printer cartridges. If you try to refill these ink cartridges it will not work because the Canon/Epson cartridges have an embedded chip in the cartridge that detects the empty cartridge even though it has been refilled.

I have enough black ink to print a few pages in black, but the printer won't print. What do I do?


I had a Epson printer that would not print or even allow me to use the scanner because the colored ink was out. Even though I had full black ink, it still would not let me print until i replaced the colored ink.

Hi I've got an epson stylus dx4400 printer. The printer is a little strange because two of the ink cartridges are reading full, even though one of them is completley empty and the other is about a quater...


There is no sensor that reads actual quantity of the ink in the printer. The measurements are based on calculations how many pages are printed and what has been printed after last ink cartridge replacement. Probably the printer has been tricked that there is a new ink cartridge, but there is the old one.
Often a small object can fall in the paper tray and go down the paper path, preventig paper from picking up and moving. Rotate the printer with the front side up and try with thin and long flat skrewdriver to rise the thin long rollers that hold the paper to the feed roller, one after another. These rollers are held there by springs. If someting is stuck behind them, it should fall down. I've found there coins, pensils, rullers, paper-clips and so on.

Scanning with no ink in an EPSON RX510


Simply Open EPSON SCAN Software from your computer and scan from there. It WILL WORK even if the Printer is blocked due to Low Ink Issue.

Epson sx200 One of the colour inks is empty and no print in black


Hi, this is not a solution because I don't think there is one apart from buying new inks. Epson and all other inkjet printers do this to prevent the coloured print head nozzles from getting blocked. If they are not used for a long time the ink dries up and blocks the nozzles. Epson recommends printing at least once a month with all colours to prevent this. Printing in black only option will only work if the colored inks are OK. Whenever the printer is turned on it performs a head clean, this is why the coloured inks get used over time even though they are not used for printing.

Epson RX600 will not scan or nuthin' with empty ink cartridges


I cannot help about the Printing problem, because it seems it needs to have all the catridges with some ink to Print.But i can help you about the scan problem.I was having the same issue as you and gave up trying to print, but when i needed to scan i realized the printer didnt let me touch any of the buttons, repeating the same message "change catridge".If you use the EPSON SCAN application that comes with the printer, it lets you scan directly from the PC. It takes longer, dont know why, but at least it scans.I hope it helps.
