I have replaced my cartridges, how do I perform a nozzle check

Download the user guide from epson:
To do a print head clean do this:
Firstly note that this won't work if you have any error lights on.
Turn on the printer.
Press the Setup Mode (screwdriver) button to enter the Setup Mode.
Press the A (top left of the LCD Screen) or one of the Arrow buttons repeatedly until "Head Cleaning" (or Nozzle Check)
appears on the LCD screen, and then press the Color button.
Cleaning of the print head starts and "Head cleaning" appears on the LCD screen. After each clean
perform a nozzle check to confirm that the head is clean and to reset the cleaning cycle.
If the print quality has not improved after repeating this procedure four or five times, turn this
product off and leave it alone overnight. Then repeat head cleaning and nozzle checks if necessary.
If the print quality still has not improved, you may need a third party head cleaning fluid, just try googling for "inkjet head cleaning fluid".
To maintain the print quality, you should print a few pages at least once a month.
Please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.

Nothing appears on the LCD screen. What should I do?

The camera may have shut off automatically to save power. Press the POWER button to turn it back on. Also make sure the mode dial is turned completely to the desired mode. When the camera is connected to a computer, the LCD screen is disabled. When it is connected to a printer, press any button to display the print progress screen. After a moment, it disappears again.
