your print heads might be clogged. clean it the hardware way. not the software way. to do this, simply buy a print head cleaning solution for Epson Printers. now pull out all your print cartridges and put a small drop of cleaning solution to the pin-like plastics in the base where your heads are seated. drop and drop cleaning solution to dilute clogs. you can use syringe to sip out the solution from the area. after this hardware cleaning, do a software cleaning through performing a cleaning print heads in the epson tools under maintenance tab
If any ink cartridge is empty, you won't be able to print until you replace the empty cartridge. Leave any empty cartridge installed in the device until you have obtained a replacement.
The print heads will clog up in a week or two. So you also won't be able to print until you clean the print heads.
This is a utility to manage your ink. Gives an accurate count of how many ink shots are left in each cartridge. The printer told me I need a new magenta but this program says I have 13% left. It also has separate routines for cleaning the black and color (unfortunately not individual cartridges) http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml
hi there first you can try cleaning the heads of the cartridge with the software which has come along with epson this will solve your problem if dont then please change the cartridges or call epson service center they provide u onsite warranty

Jets are clogged
Needs deep clean.
1st try -www,ssclg.com
The Epson utility. Run the program- select your model- right click on the icon on the bottom task bar.
2nd Take a look at www.fixyourownprinter.com.
3rd make your own cleaning tool as here
when you change the ink cartridges you are NOT changing the print head. The print head is in the carrier. If the print head has become clogged or worn then usually it needs to be replaced. Unfortunately it us probably cheaper to buy a new printer.
