    Put new cartridges in (right ones!) and only blue is printing. Have put acetone cleaner on jets (I think- the spikes) and hole in cartridge. Nothing.

    I print a doucument and it just goes through the motions and all that comes out is a blank paper.

    I clean the heads and nothing happens.

    I just put new cartriges in. Could this be contributing to the problem?

Do some head cleanings using your driver utilities
Go to control panel>printers and faxes>right click on the stylus c66 and go to printing preferences>go to maintenance tab and do head cleaning for about three times and then try to print

    try taking out the cartridge and putting them back in, if in case it does not print you need to have it serviced. But if you can tear down the printer all you have to do is to clean the print head with acrylic thinner

The Ink at the head of your Printer Cartridges has dried up.
Try this:

Load some plain paper in the printer

Remove the cartridges from the printer and carefully dab the print heads of the cartridges with a damp paper towel. ( when you start to see ink, the ink is starting to flow).

Replace the cartridges into the printer.

Go to:

Control Panel
RIGHT click on this printer
choose Printing preferences
clean print cartridges 9some papers may print)
follow the instructions and do the heavier cleaning as well

Run the calibration function and allow the paper to print.

Printer not printing. Printer goes through the motions, but nothing on paper. Ink cartridges are full

1. Make sure plastic (all of it) is not on the cartridge contacts.
2. Wipe the print area (bottom of cartridge) with damp cloth, If does not work, try warm water - even letting it stand for a few minutes.
3. Go to the printing services and service the device (this function let the printer try to clear any clogged areas that may exist.

Acts like it's printing, ink is good, but nothing prints out on paper.

Nothing at all? Poor you are. The pump may damage or lost electricity.
