Re: Epsom stylus CX4700 won't print - new ink cartridges...
They cut costs on Epson compatible cartridges by using low quality ink and chips or not resetting the chips at all. Sounds like you got cartridges that the chips were not reset on so your printer thinks all the cartridges are empty. I own a Cartridge World ink refilling store and I would never recommend purchasing compatible Epson cartridges from anyone. I would buy refills of Epson brand cartridges and make sure the seller reset the chips.

Be sure you have a new ink cartridge before you begin. Once you start
the ink cartridge replacement procedure, you must complete all the
steps in one session.
Make sure the EPSON Stylus CX5400 is turned on and not printing. The LCD screen tells you which ink cartridge is low or empty.
If your EPSON Stylus CX5400 is low on ink, press the left Menu button until you see Change Cartridge, then press the Color Copy button.
If your EPSON Stylus CX5400 is out of ink, press the Color Copy button.
The ink cartridges move to the replacement position.
Lift up the scanner.
Pinch the tabs on the front and back of the cartridge, lift it out of the printer, and dispose of it carefully.
Before you remove the new cartridge from its package, shake it four or five times.
Unwrap the new ink cartridge and lower it into its holder, then press down on the top of the cartridge until it clicks in place.
Caution: Don't touch the green circuit board on the back of the cartridge; you may inhibit normal operation and printing.
If you need to replace other ink cartridges, repeat steps 4 through 6 before continuing with step 7.
the scanner and press it down until it clicks into place. The EPSON
Stylus CX5400 begins charging the ink delivery system.
The On light flashes and the EPSON Stylus CX5400 makes noise. Charging takes about 30 seconds. When it's finished, the On light stops flashing and stays on.
Caution: Never turn off the EPSON Stylus CX5400 while the On light is flashing, unless the Stylus CX hasn't moved or made noise for more than 5 minutes.
Please follow the procedure your printer has which forces it printer to clean the print heads.
I have experience of other epson stylus models. I have previously spoken to epson about this exact problem. Repeating the head cleaning process a minimum 5 times cleared the problem.
Running head clean multiple times in succession builds up pressure in the print heads - causing (usually new) cartridges to work correctly.
you could have one of several problems here.
i,d suggest printing several test pages, and observe whether the red comes through after this.
if this does,nt work remove the cartridge, and replace ensuring the cartridge goes in with a firm click.
finally if you have the original software installed for the printer, try a head cleaning operation.
