Question about Epson Stylus CX5200 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Changed the mentioned carts, and despite a smooth installation and me cleaning the heads, still getting prints without these colors - pictures have only black and yellow. Carts are Epsons. thanks

What's going on is common with epsons. Nine times out of ten it happens when there is a cartridge change. You need to have the head cleaned out with fluid. Power it off when the head can be moved, such as when you tell it to change ink cart.'s take a small syringe with a bit of hose stuck to the head and purge the gunk out with a solution. I use 4 oz. 99% alcohol, 4 oz. ammonia and nearly a gallon of water. You might not need such a large quantity of this solution, but I use it a lot. Anyhoot, bring the solution to a near boil, and suck some up into the syringe w/ hose. Slide the hose over the part of the head that sticks into the ink cartridge and inject the solution. Do this several times until you feel no resistance from the printhead! Should be good to go then. It might be too far gone by now though.

Try cleaning the contacts and cartridge sensors as well as the cartridges. Try deleting the printer settings and reinstalling. If you?re printing high res. Set the printer to default, and try printing again. Hope it works out
