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

SOURCE: Printer doesn't print even with new ink cartridges.

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.

SOURCE: I have an Epson Stylus Color 860 and 880 printers

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.

Epson Printer Cartridges


Hi


Some times it needs a good clean up but this is up to you if you want to do this I put down here. But after you don this prime the printer so it gets the inks back in the heads, it may take a little time for the inks to work.

Ok it got to be the heads blockage
There is fluid cleaner for this but I can never find any in the shops the only ones I seen is when they sell them in Tesco but they come in with the ink refill bottles so I just use worm water by it self on a cloth and dabbing on the heads to clean them, it will not harm the heads but not to much water.

Some heads are on the inks them self but some have them inside the printer so I not know your printer so if the heads are inside you need to get them out you may find that some heads will just clip out put some need to be unscrewed so you got to know how they come out so be careful and not push to hard on them, if the heads are on the ink then it is a easy job to clean them,
It worth a try it worked for me more than ones.

Please all I ask is call back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one, so I will keep on helping.

I just bought new ink and nothing prints clearly


If it hasn't printed anything for a couple of years then the print heads will be severely clogged with dried ink. Epson recommends printing a page or two every month to keep the heads clear. You need to try cleaning the print heads, its unlikely that one or two head cleans will clear a badly clogged nozzle. Try doing 4 or 5 head cleans, wait about 10 hours for the ink to soften and do another 3 or 4 cleans with a nozzle check after each. You should see a gradual improvement in the nozzle checks. If there is no improvement then you need a head cleaning solution such as this one:
http://www.powerklin.co.uk/?gclid=CNGDypir-JgCFQ4yQgodZlC4lw
Others are available just try googling "inkjet head cleaning".
Note that head cleaning uses between 5 and ten percent of your ink cart's, if any are low on ink, have some new ones ready.
If you need to know how to do head cleans & nozzle checks, the user guide can be downloaded from Epson here:

Blank pages are indicative ofdried ink.

If the printer has not been used for a long time ink may have settled and dried in the heads.

You may need to replace the cartridges (IF they are very old) and run several head cleanings if there is no improvement.

I typicall try to print a few test pages to see if some of the color work.
