When printers sit for a long time, the ink in the cartridge dry-up as well as the ink in the printer orifices.
Since you replaced with new ink, then safe to assume the ink is dry and clogging the orifices.
You can pay for technician to attempt to clean but new printers are fairly inexpensive. Best bang for the buck would be to purchase a new printer.

    Suggest: Use a cotton swab dampened with distilled water. Gently rub the ink nozzles to remove any dried/caked ink.

Epson stylus c64 does not print in colour only black and cyan, no magenta or yellow but the ink levels are going very quickly on all. Where are they going?


I find by leaving the printer on stand -by it not use as much ink dont swich your priner off, because every time you swich in on it will star cleaning the heads on your printer and that will use lots of your ink up

Cant print


Ink button on? Check status monitor? I think is ink out message. Head cleaning for several time, throw ink too much. If u don't use CISS, after instaled ink tank, just wait for 1 hour before use printer. Ink will flow to head itself.

Will not print


Unfortunately, if you have replaced the cartridges and tried many cleaning cycles, then there is no solution other than replacing the unit. A good replacement would be the C88+

Colour printing


Check the following thread, it might apply to your problem. and just as a printer can be fooled to show a low level ink, I guess it can happen the other way around. http://www.fixya.com/problems-solutions/t103191,p342983/Epson-Stylus-Photo-R300-InkJet-Printer.aspx Good luck
