Epsom printer 500

The empty black cartridge was replaced by a full cartridge but the printer refuses to print in black - colour cartridges are OK.

Is this known problem ? I would be grateful for any tips.

Try using the head cleaning utility, supplied with most Epson printers.

It can usually be found by right-clicking on the printer icon in Control Panel/Printers; then selecting Properties, the General tab and Printing Preferences button. On the next window look for the Utilities tab.

Sometimes the software will put a shortcut to the utility in the Start / Programs.

Could also be a duff "new" cartridge.
