After using a third-party continuous ink supply system (CISS) on Epson Stylus Photo 1400 printer, black ink won't print.

My friend prints materials for visitors here in Key West.
He uses and is generally very happy with an Epson Stylus Photo1400 printer, and it does well for him ($$$), but there is a problem. The black ink cartridge has stopped working. Not just on one printer, but on three separate machines!
It appears that the problem is caused by a third-party continuous ink supply system. This one
. He is pretty certain that the machines stopped working each time after using one of these. He uses the CISS, and blammo! The ink cartridges all stop working.
So he replaced them back with all original Epson cartridges. All new cartridges are being used but the ink refuses to flow from the black cartridge. He has replaced it again. Still, nada.
I have done every cleaning alignment etc there is to do via the Epson utility several times over. I have read all Epson FAQ and studied google on the subject. And all have been dead-ends. I now turn to AskMefi.
