Perhaps the chips in the cartridges have failed? In which case you may need to replace them with brand new cartridges. If that doesn't work you might need to send it for repair as the cartridges might have damaged your machine.

Yes, Genuine Ink Cartridges.
Did you use Epson Genuine Cartridges?
ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine Epson Cartridges. !!!!!!!!
That sounds like your problem.
In Purchasing Epson's CX 5400, CX4600, & CX7400 and more, I found out that Epson does not like Generic Printer Cartridges. I also Purchased a Brother. That also does not like Generic Print Cartridges. Color that should be Yellow, will turn out Green, Blue Brown, etc.
These printers have a CHIP that will detect if it is Generic or Genuine. When they see it’s Generic Cartridges, it will print lines thru the words, stripes across the picture and also do a mix match with the colors. It also will not let you print anything, if only one of the cartridges is empty.
I wanted to print only Black, and would not let me, because I did not have any ink in one of my cyan cartridges. Go figure.
That's what these Companies do., so they can keep selling the ink cartridges. Some Printers, are able to use Generic, and some are refillable. Some you can refill them up yourself and I heard, quite MESSY.
So I learned, thru trial and error, that you must use the ORIGINAL Genuine Cartridges for these PRINTERS. Some people say some models work fine compatible, but not mine.......
I had to replace the printer, but Epson, Lexmark & Brothers are always on sale. My Brother & Epson cost me $50.00 with Rebate. .
This is the only advice I can give you. If you find this helpful, pls rate me.
Thanks and Good Luck :0)

Testimonial: "Thanks for your help. I have started using generic cartridges as I did with my Canon for years. Your help is much appreciated."
This is the same old story with Lexmark printers, you cant do any thing about it the chips have a small fuse inside them and soon as they emty it blows the fuse, and thats it so I beleave the only way is to buy new ink, or a diferent printer.
Not know any fix for them myself sorry.
Turn printer off. Unplug power cord and other cables. Wait 30 seconds. Plug cords and cables back in.
Also seen this on the net.
Use clear tape over left hand row of sensors on front of cartridge and re-insert. ink now shows with question mark but reads as full and prints fine.
but yeah, best bet, never ever buy lexmark.....:)
If that doesn't work, try disabling your ink monitoring software.

For the most optimal output experience with your AIO, Lexmark
recommends that customers update their firmware. The firmware helps ensure that
customers receive the highest yields of ink available from the cartridges,
which offers the greatest value and means fewer necessary cartridge
If you choose to upgrade firmware, note that unauthorized use of
third-party 'cloned' cartridges will no longer be possible.
When purchasing ink cartridges, Lexmark customers have two
Regular ink cartridges without license terms that
they may a) return to Lexmark free of charge (for recycling by Lexmark), b)
refill, recycle or remanufacture themselves, or c) provide to third parties for
refilling, recycling, or remanufacturing. Any Regular ink cartridge
can be refilled by a customer or a third party and will continue to work in
their Lexmark printer.
Return Program ink cartridges that provide customers with an up-front discount in exchange for their agreement to use the ink cartridge once and return it only to Lexmark for remanufacturing and recycling.
