SOURCE: epson sx200 One of the colour inks is empty and no print in black

Hi, this is not a solution because I don't think there is one apart from buying new inks. Epson and all other inkjet printers do this to prevent the coloured print head nozzles from getting blocked. If they are not used for a long time the ink dries up and blocks the nozzles. Epson recommends printing at least once a month with all colours to prevent this. Printing in black only option will only work if the colored inks are OK. Whenever the printer is turned on it performs a head clean, this is why the coloured inks get used over time even though they are not used for printing.

Hello, This can be FIXED. I'm not trying to be helpful. I'm here to FIX your problem.

You want to make changes to the printer settings to once again print in Black and White or Grayscale mode by going to Start Menu, Control Panel, Printers. Right click your printer and select Properties. Now make the changes to everything prints Black and White or Grayscale. This will make the change effective system wide as opposed to what you did which was for a single print job in a program.

Now, unfortunately, you will still get an error message that your color cartridges are empty anyway because they are.

To disable the error message do this.
Press and Hold the Stop/Reset button for 6 full seconds and then release it? Use the one Mississippi method of counting.

This will disable the empty cartridge error on most Epson printers.

Let me know of your results as I am here to FIX your problem. I'm not here to be helpful. I will work with you until this is FIXED or is now FIXED. OK? Use the comment box below to let me know your results.

Regards,
Worldvet

Have just installed new ink to my Epsom Stylus sx215 but wont print, just blank pages


Ensure cartridge fitted 100%, and you have taken off cartridge protectors, but the Printer should tell you why it's not printing !
sound simple to replace ink cartridge, but it can be tricky.

I have an epson sylus sx215 and it will not print anything out in black even though I have sufficient black ink but I am low on coloured ink, is this the problem? It used to give me an option to justuse...


The SX215 will not print if it thinks one or more of the cartridge is out of ink or missing. So if you are getting any error messages to this effect this will be the reason.

If however your printer is going through the motions of printing but not putting any black ink to paper it is likely that the printhead is partially dried or blocked. This can normally be resolved by running a couple of head cleaning cycles from your printer/printer software. I have covered this topic in more detail here if you are interested.

Hope this helps.

All colours except the black appear to be printing on my Epson C64 InkJet printer. What could be the problem?


Hi,

On this printer, the black colour is a separate cartridge.

It is possible that is has run out of ink or maybe is blocked in some way.

Try removing the black cartridge and hold it up to a bright light to check the ink level.

Make sure the contacts where the ink flows out are clean and not blocked with dirt.

If there is plenty of ink but it still won't print then try a new black cartridge.

Please rate my answer if you find this helpful.

Many thanks,

Chris

I have a 4 month old epson sx215 printer... everything was working fine two days ago and today i went to print some very important documents and my black ink wont work... the inks are all full, I have done...


you have two option,
1.you can do nozzle check and head clean , many time can repeat, there is any improvement you can continue the same process.it will work
2.change print head(better go for new printer,you should understand one thing, Epson print head along with printer so, you have to take printout at least every day one copy,if you are using HP inkjet printer,this kind of problem you can solve every easily, just change cartridge only,because hp cartridge along with print head not with printer.

Epson sx200 printer, wont print black ink only


Many printers especially Photo ones also use colour even when printing Black. so you do need to replace the spent colour cartridge.

If you only need to print in black get a B&W printer not a colour one.

Printer wont print out in colour The inks are full. The black ink works but not the colour inks, Epson stylus C84


Epson Requires Original Epson Ink.
Colors will not come out as they should, and then the words will print out only either top or bottom.
Good Luck....

Ink Cartridge


Some of Epson's cartridges went bad that way. It may be a bad cartridge. Get a new one, pull that one out and see what happens. If it works, call Epson for a refund. They had a class action suit for that type of thing, they lost and paid off. I would think they will help you right away.
