    Printer - Simple Cartridge Replacement?

    In need of a printer, I decided against going out to buy a new one and dusted off my epson stylus colour 580. This has been sat in a room in storage for about 3 years with the cartridges left in.

    Epson's ink monitor tells me the black cartridge is half full. I go to print a black ink test and nothing happens, it appears to print but not even a mark is left on the paper.

    Possible thoughts:-

    Dried up ink?

    Cartridges are cheap for this now ( ) but dont want to waste a few quid if nessecery. Any ideas as to what could be wrong?

    EDIT : Ink is still wet, just poked a pin into the its looking blocked?
