    My epson stylus cx 5000 printer will not print in black and white photos. I go to print preview and change the output box to color management. I set the printer to Black only and nothing comes out, just a blank paper. I have done trial and error with changing to gray scale to color, to black only and nothing. When it prints in grayscale I get a bluish tint. Please help!

Turn off the Stylus CX. Load letter-size paper in the sheet feeder. Press the ink and ON buttons together and hold them down for about 3 seconds.
The Stylus CX turns on and prints a test pattern, which includes a nozzle check. If the print comes as = >
Nozzle check pattern with no gaps, and if its print in black then reinstall the printer driver
or => Nozzle check pattern with gaps and black doesn't print please send the printer for repair

Even though my black cartridge is full, my black and white documents are so light they are unreadable. My color cartridges are close to being empty. Can this be the cause?


printers use all cartridges to get the correct colour even black
best get a new colour cartridge then realign the printer with a test pattern

1. try to cleaning head
2. remove the black cartridge only, (if it doesn,t changed after you cleaned head)
3. provide some warm/hot water on a bowl or plate.
4. enter the HEAD of black cartridge in to hot water. soak with depth about 2mm up to 5mm. while you see the ink is come out....
5. after the black ink has come out. pat dry with a paper towels/tissue.

No Printed documents


Have you performed a print head cleaning? If not, follow the instructions below:

1) Press <Menu> on the panel repeatedly until [Maintenance] appears on the display

2) Press left or right arrow buttons until the cleaning setting you want appears, either [Head Cleaning] or [Head Refreshing]

3) Press the <OK> button.

Note: Head cleaning should be attempted first, and may need to be done more than once. Examine the results of the test page.

Head refreshing is more aggressive, uses more ink and should only be performed when necessary (ie. when multiple head cleanings failed to solve your print problem).

Will not print text in documents, only headings.


When you go to print on your settings select print in black only. Did you buy Brother ink? Having old cartridges refilled or buying generic can pose a problem. I remember correctly brothers have a chip on the ink cartridge? I have gone through so many printers and its really not worth going any further, seems as though you have put sometime and effort in to this 100$ printer. Take 100$ & buy a kodak easy share all in one the ink is 15$ brand new.

Changed ink cartrigde and printer no longer printing.


microsoft logo is in colour and so its printing while everything else on test page is black so its not printing. the problem is common.you need to do automatic deep cleaning for the ink flow to start once you install new cartridges.go to printer maintanance option and click the option deep cleaning .it will pull out the ink in printer head and it will start working.sometimes also requires cleaning twice. thanks and do not forget to accept the solution.

Color ink not printing


Ahhrgh! Don't use windex. It contains additives that can harm the printer head.
I suggested this site in another post and it could help you.

Printing problem


Since it sounds like you've gone through all the steps to clean the print head, I would suggest trying a new black cartridge. There may be a problem with the one you have.
