epson c82 strange print problem

Archived from groups: comp.periphs.printers (More info?)

Hi, I have an Epson c82, It is about a year old and has quite a bit of
use.
It has worked well up till now. Recently the colors started washing
out of the prints and now will only print in one color as if priniting
in grey scale. I can print the same picture 3 times and it will come
out with three different colors. Very Strange! Any one got any ideas
what is going on here? The ink cartridges are all brand new.

Thanks, Phil

    Look back in this NG for the past 3 million articles on clogged heads.

    Hi Phil,

    If you could scan a few examples of the problems (in 2 x 2" squares or
    so) in 300 dpi and jpegged in high quality, and then send these samples
    to me in private mail, as attachments, I can try to determine the cause
    for you and suggest some fixes.
