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.

    Negative, I have 2 T1100 printer and the problem is on both, I think it is an setting issue, because on "Text and Image" the black is nice but the overall result is not good enough

    the inks are new and there is no colour degredation across the 4"x4" print. So I cant se that it is an ink issue. I agree with Sommer Heimo in that it is a settings issue, but I cant find anything that explains what is necessary.

Maybe one of your colour cartridges is low or empty
see https://uk.answers.yahoo.com/question/index;_ylt=A9mSs2g8xzJVZaoAnGJLBQx.;_ylu=X3oDMTByam1ucWFtBHNlYwNzcgRwb3MDNwRjb2xvA2lyMgR2dGlkAw--?qid=20101221123853AAwzTvq
particularly this reports
"I just checked the Epson website for this printer. The documentation says:
"You cannot continue printing with one ink cartridge expended, even if the other cartridges still contain ink. Before printing, replace the expended cartridge." "

Ho do i know which ink cartridge is low


Hi
the easiest way is to send a print job to printer. If any cartridge is empty, the printer should refuse to print and display an error message. This should indicate which cartridge is empty/not recognised - with a red X above the empty colour. Another way is to go to 'printer properties' then 'maintenance' page and click on 'Status monitor' button.
Hope this helps & good luck with it.

BLACK INK NOT WORKING


Black ink head clogged/cartridge empty. Go to Printer Utility and do a Nozzle Check, Print a Pattern. If Black pattern lines are missing/broken then do another cleaning. Don't forget to try a new cartridge if the cleanings do not work. Refurbished Epson printers are great and can be purchased at www.epson.com/clearance. I have used them for 15 years.

I have a new black ink cartridge but my printer wont print because the color ink is empty is there a way to get it to print without refilling the colored ink since i only need black???


When printing in BLACK, a small amount of the COLOUR ink also is used.
This "trick" prevents the COLOUR ink-jets from clogging, due to not being used.

So, you need to have a "good" COLOUR ink-cartridge.

Can't scan when out of ink


Unfortunately, there is no way to print with your printer without replacing
the empty cartridges. Sadly, that's just how Epson printers work.

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.
