Epson Epson Stylus Color 3000

Epson Color Cyan wont print

Hello all, thank you in advance for any advise you can give me. I bought a used Epson Color 3000 and was able to make it work great. Unfortunately after shipping it back home, the cyan color wont print. I made the mistake of leaving the cartridge in the printer for the shipment. The other color work well so I am guessing it cannot be the print head (the same for all colors I believe). I am almost certain there is still plenty of ink in the cartridge so I don't understand whats going on. Is there anything I could try besides trying a new Cyan cartridge? Thanks! André
Suggest that you look at the damper attached to the top of the printhead cyan port. Make sure that there is ink in it. If not, look for poor connections between the damper and ink tube and damper and printhead. You will need to remove the following parts to get a look: top cover and black cover concealing the printhead. Best look at a service manual for disassembly instructions. Hope this helps.
