Question about Epson Stylus C62 InkJet Printer
Hi Powerstone03, the solution below is probably not relevant to you. Please respond to my queries above if you still want help.
Hi barron scalp
Are you confident the new cartridge was full and in-date? Can you confirm that the old cartridge was not removed until immediately before the new cartridge was installed. Did you remove the yellow tape from the new cartridge before you installed it? Was the black cartridge change properly completed such that an ink charging cycle occurred. Have you retried any further head cleaning cycles after leaving the printer alone for 24 hours or more? If not, do it. Any sign of black ink now? Yes, but not perfect? If so do a couple more head cleans and nozzle checks. If still not perfect, let it rest for another 24 hours to disperse air bubbles. Then repeat. Patience is needed here.
If you still have no result, and you're sure you have a good ink cartridge properly installed, then you can try soaking the print heads for 24 hours (or more), as follows. Turn the printer on, and as soon as the print head moves pull the power cord out of the back, or turn the printer off at the mains. You may now carefully move the print head by hand over to the left hand side out of the way. Look inside the print head parking area on the right and you will see a small rubber cup that comes up to cover the print nozzles when the head is parked (to stop it drying out). Use a syringe or dropper to fill this cup with head cleaning fluid or distilled water. DO NOT USE TAP WATER. Carefully push the print head fully into its parking position by hand (do NOT turn the printer on) so that the cup full of fluid comes up over the print head. Leave this for at least 24 hours, then try a head clean again. If still nothing, report back
