The print head, which is integrated into the machine, is dried and clogged. You probably could have guessed that. If you and cautious and daring you can attempt the disassembly of your machine to extract the print head. Be very careful and remember where everything goes and in what order. Anything you de-grease, re-grease. The print head is the component that your printer cartridges hook into. Once out the bottom side will look like a large gray square. The best you can do at home is to set in on a folded paper towel thoroughly dampened with distilled water. Let this sit over night in an area that seeping ink will not damage anything, i.e. on a plastic disposable plate. If in the morning you see the four colors flowing you may have success upon reassembly. The worst you can do here is not get it back together and then you're at the same place you are now. Good luck, email with questions.

Track on aicaxz solution for reference to repair board. Note: if you have experience in electrical circuit, test mounted fuse at board.

If any ink cartridge is empty, you won't be able to print until you replace the empty cartridge. Leave any empty cartridge installed in the device until you have obtained a replacement.
The print heads will clog up in a week or two. So you also won't be able to print until you clean the print heads.
This is a utility to manage your ink. Gives an accurate count of how many ink shots are left in each cartridge. The printer told me I need a new magenta but this program says I have 13% left. It also has separate routines for cleaning the black and color (unfortunately not individual cartridges) http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml
