Make sure there is not an airlock in the magenta ink line. This is best achieved by fitting a syringe to the flow line and sucking through some ink. Also you may be able to use a syringe and needle to inject some in into the cartridge to prime it. You may need to run several cleaning cycles to get the ink through - I had a similar issue with and Epson R300 using CISS and carried out over 10 cleaning cycles to get the yellow ink to flow again. It may also be worth removing the cartridge and leaning the exit area with a cotton bud soaked in isopropyl alcohol as residue can build up in this area. If the problem persists you can fill the cartridge with cartridge cleaning fluid to flush it through and then empty it and reconnect the CISS ink supply. If you disconnect the CISS Supply a good tip is to use a bulldog clip to prevent the ink from siphoning out of the supply line while you are attending to the cartridge.

Ink is not visible on paper


First NEVER raise the tanks of a CISS above the height of the printer otherwise all that is going to happen is that the ink will syphon out and end up getting everywhere.

As you have not used the printer in a long time there wil be dried ink in the print heads 3x head cleaning is nowhere near good enough to clear the blockages.

One thing I would do as you have a set of OEM carts is the following presuming you have the equipment.

Drill a small hole in the top of each cart and extract as much ink as ps=ossible with a syringe (you can put it in the ciss ink tanks) and replace with head cleaning solution. Reseal the ink carts (if clean selotape will do) insert carts and do 5x head clean, leave 24hrs and do 5x head clean again. This will allow the head cleaning solution to get right insine of the print head, soften the dried ink and then flush it through..

A lot of messing about I know but you've just shelled out a few bob for a CISS so it's worth it.

NB

Make sure you keep the CISS carts above the tanks whilst outside of the printer.

Refill system for used Epson Stylus C67 cartridges


Hi Edulfo - my advice is to buy compatible cartridges. These are not refills but new cartridges that will work in your printer, but are not made by Epson. See your local e-bay site for very low cost cartridges of this type.

In addition, there are "Continuous Ink Supply Systems" (CISS) which replace the cartridges with bottles of ink. See:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/CISS-FOR-EPSON-C67-C87-CX3700-CONTINUOUS-INK-SYSTEM-_W0QQitemZ220307456327QQcmdZViewItem

for information about these. Once again e-bay is the cheapest source.

Grayscale print blue


Calibrating monitor may help. Are you sure that what you see on the monitor is e.g grey (only K?) or is it mixed. If you print 100m100y is this tomato red? Are you working in RGB or in CMYK?
