    ok thank you chnged inks and will no longer print any thing just going through like it is but blank page comes out?

    How long did it sit after being used? Ink will dry up in the printhead and the printhead will need cleaning.

Usually, with an inkjet printer to change the cartridges, open the cover and then press the power button - or the other button, if there is one. Don't be afraid to press buttons ..

The cartridge carrier will then move from its 'parked' position to a more central, accessible position. Unclip the cartridge retaining clip and simply lift the cartridge out. Virtually all inkjet printers work on this principle.

Don't try and manually force the cartridge carrier along from its parked position otherwise you will cause damage.

    Did you refill the old cartridges yourself using an ink-kit (bottles of ink and a syringe) or did you fit new cartridges?

    Re-filling old cartridges is ok, but can only be done a limited number of times. As somebody has pointed out, the ink in the cartridges does dry over time and blocks the nozzles where the ink is sprayed through.

    If you have fitted new cartridges, ensure that you have removed the plastic strip - a thin paper -usually orange or red in colour that covers/protects the print nozzles.

    *However .. there are TWO types of cartridge. One cartridge has the print heads inbuilt into them. The print heads are therefore renewed every time the cartridges are replaced.

    The other type are just 'ink tanks' that supply ink to a separate print head (it depends on your actual model of printer).

    The print heads become clogged and stop working. This is a common fault on this type of printer. A replacement print head costs the same as a new printer (therefore its just as well to buy another printer).

    if you have the type of printer that has a separate print head .. it may be the print head at fault. There's nothing you can really do except try and print page after page in the hope that the ink will go through .. and it will begin working eventually. Or replace the head/printer.

    If your printer has the other type of cartridge with the heads inbuilt into the cartridge (there will be a copper coloured strip on the bottom of the cartridge that has the ink-nozzles - a very fine pattern of miniscule jets ..) it should work, assuming you have removed the protective strip that covers the nozzles.

    I can't think of any reason why a new cartridge with inbuilt print heads do not work.

Epson c20ux -ink cartridges installation

Power on

Open door or front top of cover that covers cartridges.

Systen should move ink carrage to center so you can take out old and put in new.

Close door/cover and should get some data on Monitor to follow so system recognizes new cartridges.

If no work u have some type of a problem in printer.

I'm assuming you don't have a paper jam or anything. If you do must clear.
