Question about Epson Office Equipment & Supplies
You never Mention the Model Number. Are you using an Aftermarket Cartridge or an Original One?
Unplug the Printer for Few Minutes, say 30 minutes and then Turn it ON. If the Problem Persists, then it is an Internal Fault.
You need to Pull out the Cartridge and Re Seated it. Sometimes, a Faulty Cartridge could do the same. Try to Clean the Cartridge Connectors. Sometimes, i have seen that Bad Electronic Connectors may result in Faulty Out of Ink Message.
If problem Still remains Unresolved, then more often it is faulty Print Head.If your cartridges really are genuine Epson's, that means they are not communicating well with the print head, and you will need to replace them. They have internal chips that report various things to the printer (like ink levels and status), and they sometimes go bad.
I am sorry to Say, but this is a Common Problem with most of the Epson Printers. They Cartridges are so Cheap as Compared to other Brands, and the Quality of Print Head is so Low. This is a Consumer Market and they are aware that Keeping the Cost of the Cartridge Low, they would attract More Customer's. They make their Products as Non Repairable relative to the Cost of the new printer.
I understand your Concern and i am sorry to say, you are one of those Customer's who are again hit by Faulty Print Head. You could Google ' Faulty Print Head Epson ' and you would be Surprised to see, How many People Faced the same Problem.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

1. Look at the indicator light on your Lexmark printer.
You'll need to replace ink cartridges when the light flashes or turns red
instead of the standard green.
2. Purchase Lexmark ink cartridges. You can buy the brand
name or purchase a generic version that is compatible with your printer. You
can shop for low cost ink cartridges from ABC Ink.
3. Remove the old cartridges from your printer. Grip the
sides of the Lexmark ink cartridges and pull it out. Dispose of the ink
cartridges in a recycle program like the one at Staples or save the cartridges
4. Install the new ink cartridges after removing the
protective tabs. Avoid touching the IC chip when installing the new Lexmark ink
cartridges. Replace the cover of the printer.
5. Allow the Lexmark printer to run a nozzle test. Print
several pages with the new ink cartridges to make sure you installed the ink
cartridges correctly. The indicator light should return to a solid green color.
