SOURCE: epson c62 print head clogged
The first thing is that you need to get some compressed clean air and blow all that mess up. There is compressed clean air that comes in a can kinda like wd-40 with a small straw. You can buy it at Radio Shack or some electronic supply place. That will do the trick. God Bless.

I presume your printer was printing all colours before the cartridge change. If you removed the old cartridges a few hours or more before you fitted the new ones, it is very likely you have nozzles clogged with dried ink. If this is the case, do a head soak as follows. Turn the printer on, and as soon as the print head moves out of its parking position, 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 by hand fully into its parking position so that the cup full of fluid comes up over the print head. Do not turn the printer on at any stage in this process. Leave this for at least 24 hours, then turn the printer on and try a head clean/nozzle check again. If you now get any of the missing colours on the nozzle check, then there is hope! Try 2 or 3 more head cleans (but no more). If still not a full print, repeat the soak process until you get a full nozzle check.
If the new cartridges went in immediately after the old ones came out, it is unlikely to be blocked nozzles. If you changed the cartridges without using the proper procedure with an ink charging cycle, you may well have got air into the nozzles. This just takes patience - try a daily head clean to see if the ink gradually appears.
Finally, you may have faulty or out-of-date (dried-out) cartridges. The easiest way to check this is to try new cartridges in the nozzles that don't print, making sure you use the proper cartridge exchange procedure. Compatible cartridges are very cheap on ebay - £3 a set in the UK.
Please come back with further information on what you have tried if none of this helps.

The print head on the printer itself is proberbly dry ,you will have to get it replaced by epson.
Or buy another cartridge and see if it does the same ,since it's risky that it too might not work rather get the cheaper compatible ones that way if it still doesnt print then you don't lose too much money.

Did you use Epson Genuine Cartridges? ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine Cartridges. !!!!!!!!
That sounds like your problem.
In Purchasing Epson's CX 5400, CX4600, & CX7400 and more, I found out that Epson does not like Generic Printer Cartridges. I also Purchased a Brother MFC-240C All-In-One InkJet Printer. That also does not like Generic Print Cartridges. Color that should be Yellow, will turn out Green, Blue Brown, etc.
These printers have a CHIP that will detect if it is Generic or Genuine. When they see it’s Generic Cartridges, it will print lines thru the words, stripes across the picture and also do a mix match with the colors. It also will not let you print anything, if only one of the cartridges is empty.
I wanted to print only Black, and would not let me, because I did not have any ink in one of my cyan cartridges. Go figure.
That's what these Companies do., so they can keep selling the ink cartridges. Some Printers, are able to use Generic, and some are refillable. Some you can refill them up yourself and I heard, quite MESSY.
So I learned, thru trial and error, that you must use the ORIGINAL Genuine Cartridges for these PRINTERS. Some people say some models work fine compatible, but not mine.......
I had to replace the printer, but Epson, Lexmark & Brothers are always on sale. My Brother & Epson cost me $50.00 with Rebate. .
IF YOU ARE USING GENERIC CARTRIDGES, MAYBE IT WOULD BE BETTER IF YOU DISABLE THE INK MONITOR.
This is the only advice I can give you.
The next step would be to disassemble the Epson, and clean the Pads/Heads. Click on link below.:
I located a page on http://www.fixyourownprinter.com forum, which had plenty of details about similar issues.

Thanks and Good Luck :0)
