Epson Stylus Photo R200 - print with black ink only

I replaced my black ink cartridge b/c this is all I need to print with at this time, but system is still requesting that I change out two other cartridges. Is there anyway to get around this?

    i only need a black ink but i cant print because im missing the light cyan

  • A_Cman22 Nov 24, 2008

    It really ticks me off that just because one cartridge is out of ink, the whole printer stops working. Older printers back in the day just kept on printing, even if the cartridge was empty and nothing was comming out on the paper. Why can't THIS printer operate this way?



    It sure would help at times like right now when you are out of ink and no stores are open, so you can't exactly just go out and buy more ink.



    How do I know that just because the indicator says the cartridge is out of ink that it doesn't have just a little bit left to finsih up a project?



    God forbid you just might get your money's worth out of the cartridge.

Nope.....

Epson will not print unless all carts have ink in them to some degree. If the light is on for any reason, printing will be halted.

For future reference, once the color carts have been replaced, you can set the printing defaults to print in either gray scale or BW only. Keep in mind that Epson printers tend to mess up if you don't use the ink at least once a week.

My espson R200 won't print black even though it is full :s

ESP-son? EPSN-Sports-Online?

Use the EPSON software to run a "print-head-cleaning" cycle to try to "unclog" the path that the ink takes from the ink-cartridge, through the "jets" onto the paper.

I CANNOT PRINT BLACK ON MY EPSON STYLUS PHOTO R200. All other colors print. I have replaced all the cartridges. This is my forth attempt at trying to contact you people. CAN YOU HELP ME?


this issue may have several causes:
1. make sure that you've removed the yellow ribbon from the top of the cartridge before installing it. it is there to keep the ink fresh before it's installed and has to be removed to enable the ink to flow into the print head. (not all epson cartridges have this ribbon though)
2. check all the settings in the printer driver or simply remove the current driver completely and reinstall the latest driver you can find on the epson site.
3. the black print head may be clogged. in this case, performing cleanings will help, possibly several cleanings are necessary
4. there may be a faulty connection between the printer's mainboard and the print head.
5.there may be an electronical problem with either the print head or the mainboard.

in the last two options it's better to let a professional technician look at it.

Epson Photo R200 unrecognised cartridge message


Problem solved! I moved each cartridge up slightly to break contact and then snapped them back into place. Loaded a job up, pressed print and it started with no problem.

HI-

Yes you need all the ink cartridges filled or they should have ink in it. That's one feature of epson printer to prevent air to clog nozzles.


Hope this helps

Sadly, if only one cartridge is empty, an Epson printer won't print. But, you can bypass that by using a chip re-setter. They have them in refill stores. By using a chip re-setter, you assign a new serial number to your cartridge, thus "fooling" the printer you have put a new cartridge in. Then, you don't need to refill all the cartridges.

Printer= Epson stylus Photo R200=will not print in black


The printer is designed so that you have to have ink in all the ink cartridges. They sell more ink this way. I have the same printer and investigated this a few years ago. there is no work around. Peter
