not necessarily faulty cartridge - had same problem went thru various cartridges some worked some didn't - in fact they weren't epson - so bought epson from office depot and that would not work, so not an issue of ink dried up - if yr printer is fairly old may be easier just to replace rather than waste time and money on trying to figure out problem
I have heard many stories pertaining to Epson printers, and a few stories with your problem and with this model too.
Unplug the printer, remove the cartridges, then make sure they are put back in and seated properly and turn on the printer. Hit up a nozzle and head clean on the printer cartridges, then try to use. If this does not work, it might be an issue relating directly to the ink you are using, Epson printers can get funny if you are not using genuine cartridges. If you do use compatibles, try changing the ones you are using.
Often or not, removing the cartridges when the unit is powered off, then starting unit and putting them back should resolve.
If the problem display is shown on your computer, simply uninstall the printer software and reboot your machine, then re-install software again.
Good luck, and i hopet his is the fixya for you. Also please do let me know the outcome of this matter.
It is not uncommon for an Epson printer to fail to recognise Epson cartridges. It is either due to failing to go through the proper cartridge replacement cycle properly, or more seriously, due to a communication problem between the cartridge and the main board. To fix the first, simply go through the cartridge replacement cycle again (see your manual how to do this before the cartridges are empty). Simply take your new cartridges out when told to, and put them back in again when told to insert the "new" cartridges. If it's the second problem you need specialist help, or simply sell your printer on e-bay for what you can get.
if you open the lid of the printer you should have the ink slide to have you take it out.
I would unplug the printer for about 5min and then plug it back in and then it should ask you to redo it again.
Some of Epson's cartridges went bad that way. It may be a bad cartridge. Get a new one, pull that one out and see what happens. If it works, call Epson for a refund. They had a class action suit for that type of thing, they lost and paid off. I would think they will help you right away.
