Our printer wont print out papers because it says its low on ink but we've bought ink and put it in, but it still wont print

Have you tried printing a test page from the printer itself.
There must be a menu on the printer through which you can print a test page or alignment page.

If it does print through that then it means that the printer is fine and there is some software glitch in the computer which needs to be fixed. But if in case it does not print anything at all through that as well then it means that there is something wrong with the hardware of the printer and needs to be taken care by Epson itself.

Hello my Epson Stylus CX6600 is printing out blank pages, ran nozzle check and Head cleaning, also head allignment, still print blank pages, need help please

if the printers been sitting for some time, the printhead has dried up "not good" printheads generally retail around $100, you can try soaking the bottom of the printhead in metho which may fix some colors but you would be pretty lucky to get all them to work.

I replaced both ink cartridges for the printer, won' print.

Please follow the procedure your printer has which forces it printer to clean the print heads.
I have experience of other epson stylus models.  I have previously spoken to epson about this exact problem.  Repeating the head cleaning process a minimum 5 times cleared the problem.
Running head clean multiple times in succession builds up pressure in the print heads - causing (usually new) cartridges to work correctly.
kind regards

Does not print text

Hey there thedeligirl,

It does sound like hardware problem. If the hardware is 4 yrs old, and the people at Epson recommend you go with a new printer, then it may be time to head to wal-mart =).

The only thing I could suggest, is run some kind of calibration, or "clean headers" option on the printer.
