I bought a used Epson C62 printer. When installation of the software was complete the printer automatically printed a message that the installation was correctly installed. Then I installed new cartridges since the current ones were almost out of ink. Now the printer won't respond to "print" or to "head cleaning."

well sir this kind of indication TENDS to pertain on the ink pad that needs to be replaced. for you to extensively use the product, download an ink pad reset utility on the epson website. it should give you all of the information you need. www.epson.com/ipr is the site.
I use cheap replacement cartridges about 20$ for 3 color/5 black....the printer usually doesnt recognize the cartridges ink level but it still prints......do you use actual epson replacements? If you use cheaper replacements you might have gotten some with dud chips...prob the cartridges fault, not your printer
Turn off the printer. Click on start-control panel-printers and faxes. Double-click the printer icon and delete/cancel all print jobs listed. Then reboot the computer and turn on the printer. It should now print normally.
If it doesn't you will need to uninstall the printer using the Control Panel-Add/remove Programs-Epson Printer Software. After you have done all this, turn OFF the printer, reboot the computer and then re-install the printer. Make sure you keep the printer turned off until the installation program asks you to turn it on.
If none of this helps, or you want further information, please report back. If this solution has been helpful, please rate it.
More info is needed. Does the printer print normally from Windows programs? Is the "microstation" running under Windows, or if not, what operating system? If it's not a standard operating system that has C62 drivers (DOS, Windows, Linux, Mac), you will have to write your own driver I'm afraid. Let me know.
Both the black and colour cartridge must be installed for the printer to work. So you will need two cleaning cartridges. If you only have one cleaning cartridge, make sure your "other" cartridge is not out of ink. If you are sure both cartridges contain ink/cleaning fluid, post a new comment with this information.
