help me refurb an R1800 for Roark B+W

I bought an R1800 off CraigsList for $25. The carts are literally, 10 years old in some cases, according to the info from the printer driver.

N-O-T-H-I-N-G is printed from these cartridges, not even anything from the nozzle check or other test pages.

So the question is, how do I know if this printer can be refurbed? Do I have to buy a set of new color cartridges in order to even find out? Ultimately I want to use the Paul Roark recipes to make printer cartridges for black and white printing.

Any suggestions welcome. Where should I start?

Check out Jon Cone's Piezography site. They have a ink jet printer forum.

I'm not familiar with the smaller Epson printers.

You'll need to buy a cheap set of off-brand and test with.
And you might need to buy a flush kit.
