Hi all ,iv'e got a Epson Photo R300 on XP , which is showing that the ink needs replacing on the colours ,but the black is half full. Even tho iv'e set it to print in black only it still flashes up to replace cartridges and won't print .Any help greatly appreciated.

I think that Epson printers generally require you to have the colour cartridge/s available - even if you are only printing in black.

Have done a search on the internet and found you can't run Epsom printers on black only .They need the other colours to be opperable !! So thats that .

So you'll need to buy some more colour ink.

Can you disable ink monitoring from the epson software?,dont know if that would help but it may stop the popups lol.
