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).
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.
