Epson Stylus 600 won't print B&W

My printer just suddenly quit printing anything in black and white.  I had just replaced both the B&W and color cartridge about a week before this happened. It won't print anything in B&W, but any color portion of a document still prints just fine. I have run the head cleaning both through the software and manually from the control panel to no avail. Any suggestions?

You mean it won't print anything in Black and White, or it did print but with other colors?

Did you take the tape off the BW cartridge?
Sounds dumb, but I did that once...

try to disable colour option in the properties of the printer, have a look first.

I have an epson also, I experience problems too.  IF your printer has printed in black and white before, and now it won't maybe you printer board is bad.  This could cause this problem.  I suggest calling Epson because they have a good audiomated help line.

I had exactly the same problem last year with my Epson Stylus 600. I had to send it back to Epson and they admitted the print heads were bad. They replaced them and send it back, and it worked again. I believe the Stylus has 2 years warranty. If you still have your warranty do it now before it's too late. Call Epson at (310) 782-0770
