Epson Epson Stylus Color 3000

Epson 3000 suddenly no black

I have read a few other posts like this, but my printer does not respond to the usual treatments.

my black ran out. i took the cartridge out and tried to refill it, but messed up. so i had no black cart in the printer for a week. when i put the new one in i got no black at all, zero. after cleaning the heads with the hot windex on a towel method, still nothing prints. i have tried printing lots of solid black test pages, the reservoir is full, but still no black. not even a little bit prints.
