Epson Epson Stylus Color 660

Will not print - Epson Stylus Color 660

I have an Epson Stylus Color 660 Inkjet printer.
A week ago, the printer suddenly stopped printing (both black and colour.)
I am using brand new Epson cartridges.
I have ensured that the jets and ink passageways to the jets are all clean. I have injected cleaning fluid at the ink entry points, under the ink cartridges. This gives a fine spray through the jets.
The printer will not even do a power-on self test pattern, although it goes through the motions, so its definitely not a driver/software/computer problem.
When the printer does a cleaning-cycle, the sponge, that the head parks on, shows ink coming through.
Although I am not sure what that proves, apart from the fact that ink is coming out of the jets.
The printer is 2 years old and never been excessively used.
Any ideas, anyone?
