Heads are clogged. Has it been sitting for an extended length of time? Ink will dry up in the heads and tubes. Alot of work to take apart and clean and may still not work. Try to get a service manual at justmanuals.com

Remember to remove the Seal Tape
from the Top of the New Ink Cartridge as well as from the Bottom ! !
If a “Head Cleaning” cycle makes the Test Pattern worse, STOP.
Disconnect the Printer from the Computer.
Press the “Cartridge Change” button for ~ 3 Seconds.
When the Ink Cartridge Carriage travels to the Changing Position PULL THE POWER PLUG (NOT the “OFF” Switch). The Ink Cartridge Carriage should now Slide Freely on the Rail as long as it isn’t pushed to the Right so that it goes under the shelf to the “Homed and Locked” Position.
Fold up a Paper Towel (About 1 Sheet) so that its final width is about the same as the width of the gutter under the Print Head on the Carriage and so that it is thick enough when folded to contact and lightly press on the Print Head.
Saturate the folded Paper Towel with ~ 70% Isopropyl Alcohol and lay it in the Gutter.
Manually slide the Carriage and Print Head Over the wet Paper Towel. A slight amount of drag should be experienced if the thickness of the paper towel folds is Correct.
Let the Print Heads rest on the Saturated Paper Towels for a few Minutes or Hours. Too long a Treatment may pull out all of the Cartridge’s Ink: Check the Paper Towel Frequently to Assess if Ink is Capillarying out onto the Towel.
When the Treatment appears Successful remove the Paper Towel and Clean Up and plug the Printer power back in.
Run a Test Pattern via the Computer Connection WITHOUT first running the Head Cleaning Utility.
If the pattern isn’t OK, Try Running the Head Cleaning Utility to see if it makes it Better or Worse.
If Worse, Repeat the Alcohol Paper Towel Treatment: The Paper Towel may be Gently Pulled back and forth under the Print Heads to wipe them off.

SOURCE: cannot recognize ink cartridges
If you are using non genuine Epson carts, then you need to change the carts to genuine ones (full set I'm affraid)
Once you have replaced the carts you should find the error goes away. The problem arises somehow from non genuine carts when one (or more) is inserted that has not been "reset" properly by the refiller. This causes a cascading error through the ink monitoring system and ends up with all your inks going empty one after the other. I've seen this on several models of Epson printer.
The alternative is that the printer has fault on the main board. try the carts first it's the cheapest option. If the nmachine is in warranty, get Epson out to it.

It's possible the parking pad (otherwise known as the cleaning station) that the printheads normally rest on have become clogged or degraded and as a result the pump is no longer able to pump the ink out of the pads or indeed out of the printhead nozzles as it should normally.
I'd be slightly worried that the "cleaning head" hasn't in fact damaged the parking pad area and reduced the effectiveness of the seal around the whole thing.
Unfortunately it's very difficult to explain without pictures so I can't provide a full solution but hopefully that gives you a couple of new avenues to explore.
