Printer problem

I've got an old Epson Stylus Colour 2 printer.
It stopped printing in black so ran a cleaning cartridge on the black haed & it was printing out OK until i got a message saying the print had gone OFF LINE.
I changed the cleaning cart for a normal cart but it will not print anything in black.
I've put a cleaning cart on the colour head & all it does is make the paper slightly damp. (It should print 3 columns, yellow, blue & red).
Has anyone experienced this problem or got any suggestions.
(Apart from the obvious, that is to bin it).

try removing the printer and reinstalling it afresh

I tried removing & reinstalling but it made no differance.
Could the serial cable be faulty & if so is there any way to check it. (I don't have any other hardware to connect to test the cable).
Anyone got any more ideas.

Oop's should have said parellel cable.
I've used this cable since I first got the printer.
