Re: will not print in black
Try running the printhead cleaning utility on the printer a few times. Sometimes if you do not use your printer enough, the ink can clog the printhead on the cartridge. Another thing you can try is to use a cotton swab with some alcohol on the printhead to try to loosen it up. The alcohol trick is a last resort because it may damage the printhead occasionally. Good luck!

You can bypass the alignment on 5610 by pressing ok to start alignment and then cancel after that check by printing a document if your cartridges work fine if not you can refill them with this easy and cheaper method
My printer did that a few months ago. I tried everything to get it printing black but in the end I had to take the ink cartridge back and return a new one. Some ink cartridges dry out when they are being shipped if not stored in proper conditions.
yes because u installed both cartridges. if you only installed the color it will still print black by mixing the three colors (known as composite black) try to change the black first or remove it and use the composite black to print black text.
If you are not using Epson ink, your printer will do this. Epson printers hate knock-off ink. Always use Epson ink if you want to keep your printer working properly. To solve the problem you are having, try cleaning the ink tubes. Make sure you re-install them properly. Hope this helps. Charlene
Even though the printer doesn't call for new ink, remove or replace the color cartridge. First I removed the color and the test page printed at full speed. I then put in a new color cartridge and it again worked full speed. I believe the problem was somewhere in the half used color cartridge. Hope this solves your problem.
