SOURCE: Does not print
The CX series printers use a pigment based ink, and if it dries it frms a semi hard gooy substance on the printer ink input pins.
Sometimes after the insertion of new cartridges (Ensuring the yello tab is removed) and letting them sit overnight (to soften the ink blob) and running several cleaning cycles can unblock the ink "jam". Note: Epsons printer head need ink to cool them when printing (Sort of like oil in a car) so don;t try to print withot having ink flowing to the heads. It can also ruin the print head by overheating.
If all else fails there are several companies that sell inkjet cleaning solution. You may need a couple of cartridges to flush blocked jets but if will most likey work if the print head is still functional.
Otherwise, the technican is correct, you may need to purchase a new printer.
Note; For the future... Never let the ink run out of any cartridge without immediately replacing the cartridge. Never remove an empty cartridge without replacing it immediately.

Please remove the cartridges from the printer. Take a dry lint free paper towel and gently wipe the contacts on the back of the cartridge (not the bottom from where ink is present). Wipe the contacts inside the printer (on cartridge carrier). Please snap the cartridges back into the cartridge carrier and please try to print a printer self test.

The problem is waste ink around head sprayer (at (bottom plate of head). Turn of printer. Move head to center. Put wet tissue (with hot water) at head cleaning mechanic pad. Move head to parking position. wait till 10 minutes. check it. You can repeat 3 times.
