Sorry to say but after reading countless forums, visiting the epson web site, and talking to their tech support; they've screwed us. I've noticed that every epson CX series has countless ink cartridge misshaps, and none printing issues. First off I recommend you cut your losses now and don't buy anymore ink for it because it will not help, and I also recomend not ever buying Epson again. My CX6000 had brand new ink, the black never printed and after 2 nozzle checks my ink was very low or gone(so it says). I learned that the ink is not gone its a programming error with the chip on the side of the cartridge. Also I believe they have scammed us because phone tech support told me to take out and put back in the cartridges which "expends" the cartridge if you have seen that error and from Epson website itself says once you remove a cartridge it becomes expended or already use and the printer will reject using it. And their Epson repair stores charge 15$ just to look and see what the problem is then "fix" whatever it may be (probably something expensive). The thing is they F'd us and might as well get a new printer. best of luck to you.

It sounds like your print head my be blocked. On some printers they come with the cartridge, my canon has separate print head that can be replaced.

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.

Yup. I suspect the head has been removed from the unit. There are adjustments on some printers. It was assembled wrong. The grating noise is likely the auto cleaner. If it cannot go 'home' the unit will not initialize. Possibly the head detect sensor is broken or covered. If the head will not home (moves out and back more than once or slams home hard), 'Init Unable AF'. You may be able to order a service manual from Brother for this. A repair shop can order the manual as well. (I suspect you need a new print head as well. You might want to replace the printer) see tips on bubblejet printers.
