SOURCE: Blank pages from printer
Ahhh We love printers don't we??? Not!!! How did you clean the nozzles. Did you use the printers own maintenance system or did you do it manually. The printer can never clean them as well as you can manually, and this is probably 90% of the cause of blank pages. Clean rollers too while you are at it. Use a proper cleaning solution, and cotton buds, and clean where the cartridges go in, and the heads too. The next possibility is that the printer is set to pause, or print offline, go to your print settings, scroll down to properties and make sure thes two items are not checked. If so, unckeck them. Lastly, the drivers itself could be corrupted, and may need to download new updated drivers from epson website. Good luck

If your cartridge is new (or full) and you know that not just from ink levels display, then you did not used the printer for a while (at least a month) and the nozzles of the cartridge are clogged. If u used the cartridghe 4 or 5 moths ago, then the whole cartridge is dryed out, so get out and get yourself a new cartridge.
If it's just a month, then you should put a paper-tissue on a small plate (like a coffee-cup plate), then put some boiling water on it, just 2~3mm of water over the tissue.
Put the cartridge with the nozzles part downside on the tissue, in the hot water.
Let it stay there in the water 30 min.
Put the cartridge in an other clean tissue, than shake it strongy as if you want to force ink to get out trough the nozzles. Then clean gentle the nozzle part of the cartridge on some sheets of tissue.
Install the cartridges it in the printer and run a few cleaning processes from the printers maintenance software.
If the cartridge is new and just installed in the printer, and you have the inklevels but it does not print, then get it out of the printer and back to the store, they should replace it for you. I hope you removed the protective plastic stripe that covers the nozzles before installing the cartridge?...
OK, let ne know please how things evolve.
Hope it helped you, rate the solution.
Almoust forgot: ink levels are displayed by Lexmark inkprinters by estimating the ink consumed trough you printing process, it has no sensors in the cartridge. It's just kind of a counter, you can evan set an empty cartridge to be seen as a full one.

Take out the Cartridge & get a new one if the problem persists then get the printer software reinstalled & if still it is not printing then clean up the cartridge head with cotton swabs dipped in hot water!
This should clean the head & black will be on paper
DO THIS AS FINAL REFUGE
If still its not working then there's some problem in the copper contact surface in the printer on the cradle so get a new Printer.

Tips for a great answer:
Try to re-seat the cartridges in the printer. Open the printer
cover > remove the cartridges > close the printer cover > re-brick you
printer by pulling out the power supply - black box behind the printer where
the power cord is plugged in, and re-plug after 10 seconds. When the printer
turns on, reinsert the cartridges and close the cover. Try to print a document
again to verify that the problem is fixed.
If that doesn't help, the problem could be due to a clogged print
cartridge nozzle. Please follow the steps below to fix print quality issues
with your model:
From the Maintenance tab, select Clean to fix horizontal streaks.
Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through to clean the print
After printing the test page, try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.
