Are you using all genuine Epson inks? If so have you always used Epson
inks?

Hi Tanya,

Email me and request the Epson Cleaning Manual.

No cost, no spam, easy to fix with under $2 worth of supplies.

You have a partially clogged black head, and ink built up under the
printhead.

hi,
thanks for the reply!
i would appreciate the epson cleaning manual.
i have the epson service manual and a while back (~1.5 months ago) cleaned
the cap assembly, the cleaning station, the printHeads, and lubricated the
silver bar; cleaned the timing belt -- prior to this it had not functioned
at all.
sincerely
Tanya

Tanya-

You really ought to E-mail him, with a good return address. Of course he
can de-bug your E-mail addy, but it's nicer to send and E-mail rather
than post.

With Black Only printing you also lose resolution. Could it be a resolution
issue? In colour printing CMYK black ink is also used to achieve density.
