Remove them and try to push them in again. They should click if they are seated properly and no lights should be flashing (unless you have refilled them).

Hi i have an epson stylus c64 and it hasnt been used in quite some time, i tried to print from it and it didnt work so i went and bought all new ink cartridges for it as i thought because it was stilling...


When printers sit for a long time, the ink in the cartridge dry-up as well as the ink in the printer orifices.
Since you replaced with new ink, then safe to assume the ink is dry and clogging the orifices.
You can pay for technician to attempt to clean but new printers are fairly inexpensive. Best bang for the buck would be to purchase a new printer.

Epson,. has it rigged, that you must have ink in all the cartridges.............! Doesnt make a difference, if you are printing black and white ONLY.

You have to replace them.

Hp960C leaking ink


1. If you have them, go ahead and put on your latex or close fitting gloves. Ink generally gets everywhere and can be hard to clean off your hands. It’s important to not work on a printer that’s plugged in. However, sometimes certain inkjet printers will not let you change the ink unless the printer is plugged in. So, if this is the case, go ahead and life the cover of your inkjet so that the cartridges can be removed. Once that’s done, unplug the printer.
NOTE: Be sure not to touch the metal part of a inkjet cartridge, because the natural oils on your hand could inhibit the communication of your cartridge and your printer.
2.
To clean the inkjet cartridges, check to see if your cartridge’s have both ink and a print head together.
Together (most common):
Take a paper towel and fold it in fourths. Then add either alcohol (preferred) or Windex to one side of the paper towel. Now, wipe the bottom of the cartridge on the paper towel to clean off the print head in a flower like fashion. It is normal that ink comes out of the cartridge even after you think it’s all clean (that’s what it’s supposed to do).
Separate (less common):
Do not clean the ink cartridges themselves. Since they doesm’t have a print head and generally don’t control the amount of ink that flows out the bottom, you can get pretty messy if you tried to clean the ink itself. Take the print head and separate it from the ink cartridges, then follow the above directions to clean the head.
3.
Now take another paper towel and fold it again in fourths. This time spray a thin layer of Windex on the paper towel and clean the ribbon if it has any major ink blotches on it (see picture to better understand this step).
Whenever a printer finishes its document, your ink “rests” or docks usually on the right or left of the printer. Over time, this area can harness a ton of ink mixed with paper dust. This makes a gooey substance that’s can cause big image problems on the paper since every time you print, you run the chance of hitting or docking on this mountain of gooey ink. To clean, we’re not going to use a cleaner, because if you can see a buildup of ink, generally, it’s much too hard to get to and can be very messy. In the picture, I’ve highlighted where this printer’s “reserve” is starting to build up.
4.
After a while of printing, you may notice that the inside of your printer has a thin film of ink inside everywhere. Although it doesn’t really matter when it’s on the plastic, this can affect the oil on the stabilizing bar, making it harder and harder for the print heads to move. Sometimes it gets so bad that you can hear a “crunch” or “grind” and the end of a printing job. It may appear that the printer isn’t aligning right or can’t dock, but sometimes the lack of oil is the cause.

Wont print


Look at the end of the cartridge and see if there is ink build up on it. If there is, you can run it under warm water (not the whole cartridge, just the print head). Do not "rub" the print head, as that will force ink back up into it. Let the warm water dissolve any ink built up on it. Let it air dry (no towels, etc).

Does it have more than one cartridge?
