Re: Printer will not power on
Sounds like the power supply went bad. The power supply could be attatched to the power cord or may be in the back of the printer. It is usually removable. You may call your local computer service guy and see if they have spare parts.
The bummer about it is getting the new power supply could run close to the price of a new printer.

that means colors jammed, you need to do self cleaning few times, the manual will tell you how to do that. if still not working, send it to your local Epson service center or buy a new printer Small tips for inkjet printer, power on and print couple pages every few days, your printer will last much more longer.
It appears that the printer is malfunctioning and will require service. I suggest contact its manufacturer to verify the warranty status of your printer, and have it replace by them. If the warranty is already expired, you can send the printer to the nearest service center for repair.
Sometimes it requires several head cleaning passes to fix missing lines. Make sure the test pattern after cleaning has no gaps. Print the test page. If test page is bad and you have replaced all ink cartridges, then junk the printer or call Epson for a replacement. Even if out of warranty, the may give you a great deal.
there are two main areas of concern: A waste sponge located just under the printhead, and which helps to park the printhead when you turn the power off, and the actual printhead itself. There are also two ribbon connectors that attach to the printhead assembly--and if one of them is not fully plugged in the exact symptoms you describe will occure.
To reach the waste sponge require the dis assembly of the upper half of the printer. I can knock it out is about 5 minutes now! I have used about 50 Q tips to soak up the ink, and manually clan the long rectangular sponge as well.
It you want I can send you pictures of my printer all torn down.
Sounds like you have a faulty printer. I use both Safari and Firefox without any problems [Epson CX9400Fax]. Call Epson and if your still under warranty they'll send you another one or pay for a repair. Do not pay the repair yourself as you can buy a printer with a 1 year warranty from Epson from their Clearance Center. BTW, I've been telling everyone to buy a CISS system as it saves tons of money on ink. http://www.inkproducts.com/ink-store/
If you have already tried 3 consecutive head cleanings and nozzle check from the computer, tried reseating the inks and tried replacing the ink and it still acts like its printing but just provides a blank page chance are your printer already has hardware issue. The ink delivery system is already clogged. If your printer is still within the 1-year warranty period I suggest that you call Epson Tech support for more options otherwise, you would need to get the product repaired by an Epson certified service center.

if you left your printer for two weeks or more without using, the print heads may be stuffiness. In this case (aparently yours cases) you must take your printer to a authorized service, they will can clean (with a proper fluid) or replace the ink heads, if cleaning is not possible.
I've had this happen twice with the CX5400. I've fixed it both times by following the instructions on this page: http://inkjetprinterhelp.us/duraink.html (This involves dissassembling your printer so it's not for the faint of heart!)
