Printer prints red instead of black

original title: Ink Color

Why is my printing coming out RED instead of  BLACK or  BLUE???????????  I have an Epsom C88 printer, and have

never had this kind of problem before.   I changed my black cartridge and that did not make any difference.

You could ask Epson support for a definitive answer, but I've seen a suggestion that this behavior may be caused by a blocked ink purge tube.  See this page.  And this page for cleaning solution.
