First; thanks for clicking on this stupid thread.
I have an Epson Stylus Photo R200 printer that does printable CDs ans DVDs, as well as photo and letter work. It has worked flawlessly for several years until I recently ran out of black ink (6 cartridge system), replaced the catrtidge twice and am still getting no response. Tried all help screens, etc. Can't even print a test pattern now nor a cartridge clean/charge.
Anyone have some input? Please let me know.
BTW, the catridges I put in are from a company I have used about a dozen times and the last one I used was from the same batch, only about 6 months ago.
