I have a epson stylus 1400. I just tried to put brand new (epson) ink in it. It give me a message that says "ink not compatiable". This is the same epson ink I have always used. It is T0792 / T0794. This is the correct ink. Why will the printer not recognize it ???
Hi. When I fitted the second set of cartridges to my Epson Stylus Photo
1400, the printer failed to recognize any of them, even though they
were genuine Epson! I repeatedly installed and un-installed them
without success. After giving it a bit of thought, I had a hunch that
the contacts on the cartridges might not be making good contact with
the contacts on the printer as the cartridges seemed a little loose. I
removed each cartridge in turn and after putting some adhesive tape on
the opposite end to the contacts, (there are grooves cut into this end,
but the tape drops nicely into them when you install the cart) replaced
them all. (This had the effect of pushing the cartridges harder against
the contacts). Switched on again and all carts worked fine. So it seems
that even Epson can't make the cartridges to fit their own printer
properly! Having said that it's a great printer otherwise. I hope this
is helpful to you.

Your yellow ink cartridge is not putting out any ink. Try cleaning cycles in groups of 3 (important). Print a nozzle check between each cycle. After a couple groups of 3, give up for a while and try again in a few hours. Try a new yellow cartridge, too.
When you see this message you need to replace the parts or buy a new printer. It cost more to replace those parts that a brand new printer. All Epson's are like this . I had 4 Epsons and all 4 done this same thing. They are great printers but unfortunately they are like this.
Ye of course it could be faulty and Epsons are sometimes very fussy about using third party carts. Get it replaced at your store, try a different brand or buy a genuine Epson cart if you can afford it.
The problem can be two fold. Wrong cartridges, or blocked/damaged inkjet openings. Return it to the seller under warranty if its brand new. If it was fitted with non epson cartridges your warranty may be in question.
But I could almost guarantee the black qand the blue cartridges are faulty or their feed jets are
