Sepia, sepia and only sepia

No matter what I try I can't get my Epson R3000 to print any mono other than sepia.I've checked all the settings, the nozzles are fine, no problem with the Epson cartridges.The printer just refuses to do what I ask it.

Have you checked and downloaded the latest driver updates for that printer.

Might pay to start afresh, and do a re-install. Then see what happens.

I believe this printer has a special B&W cartridge for printing B&W and this must be selected, the other B&W cartridge is for when you are using colour. Not 100% sure, but I think you have to use the printer profiles not the ICC profiles used by other software you would normally use. Look in your manual re. Switch the Black Ink type
