Epson XP-342 will not print black

This started for no reason, half way through printing a load of invoices, no black text just the colour logo at the top, plenty of ink, nothing changed on computer.

So I changed the black ink anyway still the same, run several cleaning cycles, print test print from the printer itself, no black, only magenta cyan & yellow.

Then I discovered if I changed paper type to glossy it works again, just slow and over saturated on plain paper.

Photos print perfect as always, well, as perfect as this cheap printer can

Is it borked ?

Thanks all
