Did you use Epson Genuine Cartridges?
ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine 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 MFC-240C All-In-One InkJet Printer. 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. .
IF YOU ARE USING GENERIC CARTRIDGES, MAYBE IT WOULD BE BETTER IF YOU DISABLE THE INK MONITOR.
This is the only advice I can give you.
The next step would be to disassemble the Epson, and clean the Pads/Heads. Click on link below.:
I located a page on http://www.fixyourownprinter.com forum, which had plenty of details about similar issues.

I found this on fixya per dgsturt
It looks like you've managed to get ink all over the shop by using the self clean option. That't mainly to clear bocked print heads and tends to squirt a load of ink through.
That ink has to go somewhere, it looks like you may have some on your rollers.
First, I'd have a look through the printer menu see if there's a roller cleaning option, give that a go.
Second, I'm not sure but worth a try, try printing a document that has wording all down the page but use an empty cartridge. If your printer will do this you’re effectively using a sheet of paper as a mop to clean the rollers.
Third, probably the most difficult, get some Isoproprial Alcohol from the chemist and try and clean the rollers and print bed yourself with a lint free cloth and cotton buds, what ever works.
If you don't like the idea of Isoproprial Alcohol, it is highly infamable, try with a damp cloth first, but it will take longer to dry off.
pls rate me.
