1. The printer head is clogged.

2. What happens when you try to print the Windows Test page? Does it only print the Windows Flag and nothing else?
Does the copy option work on the printer? (can you copy something or does it come out blank as well)

Need to print black only but low colour cartridges cause error


Most likely you cannot. If you do not have any of the colour cartridges with ink in them, the print heads will dry out and when you want to print in colour you will not be able to print in colour.

I dont have any coloured ink cartidges left and need to immediately print some forms in full black will be okay but i cannot change my colours to black as the ink holder stays on the far right of my epson...


To print in all black, you can change a setting through the computer to tell the printer to only use the black ink. This is better than putting black ink where the color ink normally would go as that would cause the shading to be wrong and potentially ruin the documents.
If you have enough black ink in the printer, before you finalize the printing process make sure you have black and white only selected.
This will allow you to print without getting access to the ink cartridge holders.
Good luck hope this helps.

The printer in out of colour ink, and still wont print in black and white


Replace the colour ink. Some printers mix-in a bit of coloured ink, when printing "black", in order to prevent the colour-inks from drying-out.

Changed ink and now the printer wont print


The old ink has probably dried, plugging the jets. Try going through the cleaning cycle (several times if necessary). If it begins to print at all then let the printer set overnight and try cleaning again.

I recently replaced the black ink cartridge and do not wish to use the colour cartridge. However, the printer still keeps flashing the critically low level of my colour cartridge and does not print.How can...


Many printers always use a small amount of each color even if you are only printing black, to prevent the color nozzles from drying out and getting clogged (and, it forces you to buy more ink, which is a profit center for printer manufacturers)

For this reason, some printers will not work if ANY of the cartridges are empty.

It should work again if you replace the color cartridge. Make sure to select "black ink only" or the option to print in black and white or grayscale to minimize color ink usage. It may still use a little, but that's OK.

One colour cartridge on epsom sx200 is empty yet it wont allow me to print in black only


umm... this is not a solution because I don't think there is one apart frombuying new inks. Epson and all other inkjet printers do this to preventthe coloured print head nozzles from getting blocked. If they are notused for a long time the ink dries up and blocks the nozzles. Epsonrecommends printingat least once a month with all colours to prevent this. Printing inblack only option will only work if the colored inks are OK. Wheneverthe printeris turned on it performs a head clean, this is why the coloured inksget used over time even though they are not used for printing.

Installed black ink but hp psc 750 keeps saying install colour and i only have black ink. Can you operate this printer without colour in.


Print cartridge
When the print cartridge contacts are dirty and the printer cannot detect/communicate with print cartridge.
Clean the contact points on the cartridges with a dry, lint-free cloth.
1. Open the top cover of the printer.
2. Remove the print cartridges.
3. Clean the copper-colored contact points on the cartridges with a damp, lint-free cloth. Use a dry, lint-free cloth to remove moisture from the contacts.
5. Insert the cartridges back into the printer.
6. Close the top cover.
7. Try printing again.
If you still cant communicate try with new cartridge .
