Question about Epson Stylus 1520 InkJet Color Printer

Epson Stylus COLOR 1520

I haven't used the Epson Stylus COLOR 1520 printer for a while (18 months plus) - now it won't print. It goes thro the motions - paper feeding - head back and forth but nothing on the paper.

I've replaced the cartridges - so I know ink is there.

I've run Nozzle Clean now in excess of 20 times to try and clean the heads etc. but nothing

Any suggestions

There could be something wrong with the connections going to the ink jet cartridge in the printer.

Someone should take a look at it.
