Hi dont want to be rude but you are saying the old frase, worked well last time they were used several years ago. Well in all reality they will be really only good for parts as the printer heads will be dried up, the ink will be dried up, the moving parts as they havnt been used may need lubed, so really all you could do is eBay them as local pick up only for parts and maybe you may sell them. They are old and printers have advanced so much like all electronics tht they are so outdated.

Hi there maximum time we found it is a the head problem. The print head is what the cartridges sit in inside of the printer. For resolve the problem please follow these.

Open the printer and wait for the carriage to slide over. Some how if its not come then Unplug the printer & Manually slide the carriage. Now Remove the ink cartridges from the print head & Use wet warm cotton swab or use alcohol to thoroughly clean the print head. Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab. After finished it make the head dry then fix it back. Now Try to print something now
If that does not work then follow the next step.

Remove the printer data cable & restart the PC & printer. Then fit back the data cable & turn on the printer. Hope that's start working , if no luck then Uninstall the printer driver & restart the PC & Printer both again. Now install the driver of the printer and connect it with PC ,Turn on printer & go for a test print from the printer preference. Thanks & waiting for your reply.

this two sites provide drivers for it:


you did not provided what operating system you use, therefore these drivers maybe useless, if that is the case, plese try use generic drivers emulating any of the following:

epson lq-2550
hp ruggedwriter 480
hp pcl3
ricoh series 5000
ricoh series 8524
ricoh series 8600

indeed, all these are interchangeable. hope this do solve your problem.

hi there , remove the cartridge and clean the head both of printer and cartridge. Then clean internal part of the printer and then fix the cartridge in printer and try. If you face the same problem then reset the printer and let me know the result.
