I am changing the black ink from Matte Black to Photo Black and I am getting the message "Ink Cartridges Cannot Be Changed" but am unsure why. The black inks seem to be fine. If one needs to be changed, which is it?
Thanks in advance.
And if someone will move this to the printer forum, where I thought I was posting it, I would appreciate it.
If you went through the printer setup menu system to change the type of black ink as per the manual, then I would call Epson today for help. I think that will be your fastest route to get out of the problem.
(We will be moving the topic today. You're right about that. Thanks.)
Based on the message displayed in the screenshot of the Epson driver window you do not have sufficient ink in the matte black cartridge to complete the ink change. Changing black inks requires flushing the black ink line that both matte and photo black share. you will have to install a new matte black cartridge to flush the line. You can then swap it out with the depleted old one and continue to use it until it runs out of ink.

The panel on the printer actually had a better message. It specifies that the yellow cartridge needs to be replaced. We'll see if I need to do the matte black as well (it's over half full) after I go out and purchase a couple of cartridges.
