Printer not printing color anymore

    At work I have a Espon Stylus C86 which has been working up until now.

    I ran out of my colored ink, so I changed all the colored cartridges at once.
    I've done this about three times in the past months and no problems but now after I change the cartridges the printer recognizes the new ink but it wont print in color!! I have tried everything - cleaning the print heads, checking the nozzle, going through all the steps and nothing works!!

    Epson was no help they basically told me to do the very exact things I already done.

    So, can anyone help me?? Thank you!!

    I know it will not help, but, it is possible you have a bad batch of cartridges, - but have you tried using the old cartriges that were not quite empty, and the new ones for empty ones- I EXPECT YOU HAVE.
    I have an Epsom r200, and have had a bad batch , but always have spares, so, I have experienced the problem.
    If none of that , or, what Epsom suggested works, I would replace the printer, if it's out of warraty.

    Thanks for all of your responses guys. The same thing happened when i changed the black ink, so i really pestered Epson and i found out that the printer needs a new print head..whatever that means (yes its out of warrenty rolleyes) and the nearest service center it more than two hours away!! So, I just stole my co-workers printer (he doesnt use it LOL) and were are just going to buy another one!

    Thanks again!
