Customizing print settings
Click Advanced, then click More Settings. The following dialog box appears. Choose Color or Black as the Color setting.
Select the target printer, and then click Properties. Select Custom as the Mode setting, and then click the Advanced button. Select ICM as the Printer Color Management setting. Select Driver ICM (Basic) or Driver ICM (Advanced) for the ICM Mode setting (for more detailed information, see ICM).
First, check your printer settings on the file or picture your trying to print. If your page is setup to print in “grayscale” it will only print in black and white. Change the setting to “default” so it will print in color. If your settings look good from the start, the cartridge may just need to be primed.
ICC color Profiles are look-up tables that describe the properties of a color space. A profile will change the properties of a color space that your Epson printer prints. For example, your Epson printer will have the information to print a picture of the sky `blue` but not the exact shade you can see on your monitor.
Color Matching Settings
EPSON Color Controls. Lets you manage color using controls in your printer software, or turn off color management.
All cartridges must be installed with ink for printing and printer maintenance. For print quality, some ink remains in replaced cartridges. Designed for EPSON cartridges only: Other brands of ink supplies are not compatible and, if described as compatible, may not function properly or continuously.

Check the ink levels
Sometimes, the printer may not print black ink because it is low or empty. You can check the ink levels on the printer`s display, or by using the software that came with your printer. If the ink level is low, replace the cartridge or refill it according to the manufacturer`s instructions.
The Cause of Clogs
Printheads clog because nozzles get blocked by either air or ink. Clogs usually happen when: You keep printing with depleted ink cartridges. Using empty ink cartridges can result in air bubbles that can clog your cartridge and/or printhead.

Epson Stylus C64 in problems, Help!!!!
a lucky tip – if all else fails and you don’t have a PC instead of a Mac, try what I did on my C63. When the head finished moving and both red lights flashed with a “general error’ message, turn off the printer power supply and physically slide the head from its rest position to the far left of the printer. This seems to re-set the “foreign body” trigger. Turn the power back on, the head slowly moves back to the rest position and hey presto the lights have stopped flashing and the printer works! Sounds clumsy but you have nothing to lose trying it, the cost of repair exceeds the value of a 10 year old printer.

It looks like General Error occurs. Check for foreign objects inside the printer which may block the movement of printhead carriage, paper feed, etc.
