Try manually feeding each sheet. That may help.

Are you using genuine epson cartridges? Many generics simply dont work on the newer printers. Once the printer decides the cartridge is empty, it sends a signal to the chip and that's it. You might hear ink, but if the chip says empty you can't use it. It also has the annoying habit of doing this when there's still 10-15% of the ink left.
I use reusable cartridges from http://www.ccs-digital.com They hold 2/3 more ink and the chips automatically reset to full if you remove and re-insert the cartridge. Instead of replacing the entire cartridge when it's empty, you pop out an internal ink tank and replace just that. So you know the chip has already been recognized by your printer. The ink tanks cost under $3. I think these are a brilliant invention.

In Windows there are many different printer drivers out there but the basics for epson printers are when you click on print select your printer then click properties. most epson drivers will not allow you to print on glossy paper in black ink only so the paper options type will need to be matte then you should be able to select black ink only from the print options.

Ran into the same problem. The problem is that the printer's paper sensor sees through the vellum and therefore doesn't think any paper moved into the print position. To use vellum, fold up 1/4" edge on a standard peice of print paper and place the leading edge of the vellum under the flap. Place the paper and vellum into the printer and print. The printer will pull in the paper and the vellum together. Make the paper fold tight and straight to prevent jamming. You will need to feed one sheet at a time. Also the Epson inks take a long time to dry on vellum. I let mine dry overnight.

Confirm you are using the correct cartridge:
Ink color Part number Black 69 Black (High Capacity) 68 Cyan 69 Magenta 69 Yellow 69

If the cartridge is the correct one check the contacts on the cartridge and its holder for contamination or damage.
