Epson 600 won't print black + dodgy status monitor

  Never again 19:28 07 Jun 2003

I have obtained an epson 600, which i am told is a good printer, but it had been unused for some time.

I am running Windows ME.

After installing, I cleaned the heads at least a dozen times, but had no ink output at all.

I then purchased some new cartridges as the status monitor did not show any ink and the lights on the front were out (except power).

I installed both of them and cleaned the heads 6 times as well as doing a number of nozzle prints, but I'm only getting colour output - no black, and the status monitor still shows no inks.

Any suggestions please

Thanks for the reply

If I assume that the print head is dead is there any way that I can get the colour cartridge to act as the black one so at least I'll be able to print for a while?
