    I changed the black cartridge in my printer and now I get incomplete text (faint and only top half of text). I've tried everything the manual says - and some. Any ideas please?

    It may end being just a defective cartridge, however you could try these things:
    1) Remove cartridge inspect contacts for residue from covering material. Take Swab (q-tip) and alcohol clean contacts thoroughly.
    2) Clean contacts on printer same way.
    3) Make sure dust and/or coagulated ink is not present on ink nozzles.
    4) Reseat cartridge and run printer utility to clean nozzles and run calibration/test page.
    If all the above fails return the cartridge as defective and get a new Epson cartridge for your printer.

    Thanks Davey - I'm gradually getting it back by repeated cleaning and printing.

    Could be the nozzle was clogged or the ink is coagulating.
    If that cartridge is new you might consider returning it. If it is a
    refill, remember cartridges have a life span on how many times they can be refilled.
    Good luck and keep us posted on how it going.
