My color won't print anything . I put new jets in and it still would not print and I thought those were just dried up so I bought some more new jets.
Still the same thing so now I have 2 open sers of ink jets and neither color will work. I can't find my Book as I am doing geneology and thinks sure can get piled up . Really hope I can get this fixed or I will have to buy a new one and it won't be a kodak. I just got a new Kodak digital camera for Christmas---gift from my Daughters.

After two years of no use the ink is most likely dried up and plugging the print head, try this first before you replace the cartridges, soak the print head of all cart's. in hot water for 10 minutes and wipe dry, then try again, if that doesn't work you will need to try need cart's, buy reman ones they are cheap and if the printer is defective you won't be out so much money. I advise you based on my experiences that buying a used printer is risky, a new one is so cheap it is just not worth the risk of getting a DOA used printer. The last printer I bought came with a rebate for the entire price of the printer, and it is a Canon not a no name.
If it copies ok, then the issue is either the way it is cabled to computer or the print driver software settings on pc.... How is it connected via USB? Check port and correct driver is in windows/control panel/printers. Reinstall.
cant quite understand the type of english used but if the cartridges have been refilled .. the mashine goes through a process of cleaning and realianing the cartridges.if one isnt working then jets have dried out and blocked,in the refil kit is a bottle of solvent,put a bit in saucer,put cartridge in so jets are covered and it will disolve the dry ink
The old ink has probably dried, plugging the jets. Try going through the cleaning cycle (several times if necessary). If it begins to print at all then let the printer set overnight and try cleaning again.
I've had nothing but problems with Epson cartridges and drying up of ink. If the cartridge is a little old, say a few months, then don't be surprised if its dried up. especialy if its in warmer weather near a window.
If its new, then make sure that the tape is remved from the cartridge [obvious but I thought I'd mention it].
Also, its expensive, but you shodu lonly use genuine Epson ink cartirdiges adn not genreic brands or refills.. having spent coutless hours reparing ruined printers because someone thought they could save a few bucks.. it ain't worth it in the long run.. buy the genuine ink adn use good quality paper..
Unfortunately when a inkjet printer is not used in a while the ink dries up... If I was you I would try a new color cartridge and see if that helps out. It is a fine balance with ink jet printers... you don't want to print so much because ink is expensive but you want to print enough to keep the heads and ink from drying out. Good Luck!!!
I don't know if this will work on an Epson, but it does on Cannon. The pads on the cartridges or the ink jets in the printer head may be cloged with dry ink. Get some Q-tips and rubbing alcohol (water is a poor substitute). Take out the ink cartridges and touch the pad on the bottom with a Q-tip (one for each color). If there is color the cartridge pad is OK. Take a fresh Q-tip dip it in rubbing alcohol and GENTLY rub the little holes on the bottom of the plastic box the cartridges go in. Thse are the print head jets. You should see color. You may need to clean it a couple of times if the ink has dried down into the jets. It is OK to have the Q-tip pretty wet, but not dripping.
