Have you tried head cleaning?
if not,and you have windowsxp,go to start,settings,printer,right click on printer ,then properties,printing preferences,maintenance,then head cleaning.if that does not work try replacing the ink cartridges.
Go to the setting on the printer and go to maintence or option ink? set it to both color & black. If you are only using black set it to black only depending on what you have on the ink cartidge. I hope this was helpfull.
I use cheap replacement cartridges about 20$ for 3 color/5 black....the printer usually doesnt recognize the cartridges ink level but it still prints......do you use actual epson replacements? If you use cheaper replacements you might have gotten some with dud chips...prob the cartridges fault, not your printer
This is to do with the way in which the cyan, magenta, yellow and black ink is mixed to produce all the colours e.g. to print "red" requires both magenta and yellow ink. Thus, if the magenta ink is not flowing for some reason, for example, the "red" will print out as yellow. So, make sure all your cartridges and nozzles are working properly.

You can go into the properties of the printer, and set it up to print everything in black only. This is the only way to FORCE the machine to use black ink for everything. The drawback to this, is that when you want to print something in color you will have to go back into your printer's properties and uncheck the black only option.
