You can clean the heads with software function.
Open epson print center maintenance clean head. Or Right click on printer icon on task bar, Select clean head.

Even though the Miro cartridge is compatible the ink color, texture, drying time, is different. Resulting in colors coming out wrong. Try going to Miro jets site & download printer driver or color correction file for your printer. Most provide them.

Good Luck!

Usually due to continually using compatable cartridges. \needs a good clean then install genuine Epson. The ink jet contains about 25% of the ink. Changing a cartridge has little immediate effect on what is being printed

Epson c43sx current ink levels not shown in the properties

See my answer to your similar question:

t is possible that the ink cartridges in your printer (especially applicable if you are using refilled or compatible carts) can not be read by the printer. Some compatible cartridges have a failure rate as high as 30% and so it is very possible that the machine either does not see the cartridges or can not read them.

Replace the cartridges with genuine Epson ones and try again. The genuine ink will also help to clear any hardening cheap ink in the print head.
