How do I clean and maintain my Epson Stylus C60printer?
I tried running a test paper through a used Epson Stylus C60 printer that was given to me and nothing happened. The cartridges are empty but I thought however, that the paper would go through.
I was told that inkjets may most likely need cleaning. PLEASE HELP ME CAUSE I DON'T EVEN KNOW IF IT'S WORKING YES OR NOT!!
Also, my OS is Windows Vista so I wasn't sure if it work with it but it "automatically" just showed the printer settings and everything. Even the ink levels.
Please help me. I would really appreciate it before I go of refilling or buying ink!!!

Put the ink cartridge onto a damp paper towel.
Does ink "bleed" onto the paper towel?
If not, then the print-heads are clogged,
and you should run the "head-cleaning" software (part of the software package for the Epson printer).
with regards to the status of the lights., its either the cartridges that you installed is not recognized by the printer's print head or cartridges are defective. try these steps: if all the inks are new take them out and get an eraser and rub the small chip gently so as to clean the contacts of the chip ( don't touch it with your finger ) reinsert the cartridges in the printer and allow it to charge.
It sounds as though your printer heads need to be cleaned. If you go into your computer, then hardware and find the printer, right click it and find an option/properties tab. Somewhere on here there should be a performance area where you can choose to clean the printer heads : )
the sensors cant see paper on the perforated part/side. same goes for transparencies, the printer can't see it
