I have two computers, both of which cannot print on my printer when it printed fine before
I have an Epson Stylus C82 printer and have used it for a long time. I replaced three of the four cartridges recently and can only get print response from the one not replaced. It is a color so only get response on it when on color print setting. I have gone through the mfgr trouble shooting to no avail. Any ideas? I am not wanting to invest in a new printer if not needed.

Re: I have two computers, both of which cannot print on...
Just a simple to start you off. If you are using those horrible compatible cartridges instead of the genuine ones, check taht you have torn off any strips of plastic that need to be removed to uncover the air holes.
If not the ink can not get out of the carts.
If you have removed the strips or are using the genuine carts, it may be that you have a split in the tube that runs from the pump cap or that the pipe that deposits ink to the waste pads is blocked. Both of these errors usually result in a total loss of print.
Have you ran the head clean function?

Hi there follow the steps below.
Remove the printer data cable & restart the PC & printer. Then fit back the data cable & turn on the printer. Hope thats start working , if no luck then un install the printer driver & restart the PC & Printer both again. NOw install the driver of the printer and connect it with PC ,Turn on printer & go for a test print from the printer preference. Thanks & waiting for your reply.
It sounds as if your print heads are clogged. First try performing a deep cleaning from the Service menu. If this fails to clear your problem you can try to manually clean the heads but you may want to use Q-Tip's and Alcohol to clean the cartidge print head before you go to that expense.
You may need to download an updated driver from the Epson site.
Another ugly thought; if your printer has been off for a while, it may not print at all anymore.
The brand is great for hard use, lousy for only occasional use.
The ceramic printhead will clog and print no more.
If you have tried cleaning the nozzles from the maintance/utility on the printers driver then chances are you are having an issue on the printhead, probably clogged. Two things, have it serviced or call Epson for support at 562-276-1300.
