Did you put a new cartrige the first time, or just put ink in the old one? Ink cartriges dry out. If you let them sit for extended periods of time, you don't save ink, you let them dry out. You can try to bag and wrap them if you are not going to use for awhile and see if they keep longer...but usually you just have to get a new one. I've heard you can put tape over the end of it to keep it longer...don't know from experience though. New carts will usually do the trick though.

Are you using gen. epson cart? If not then try that first.
Sounds like you have a block black print head there are many posts on that subject.

Sometimes there is a coating on the chips (even original epson ones!) - Old wives tales say dont touch the chips with your fingers - but take the carts out one by one and wipe your finger over the chips (1 finger for one chip - dont reuse the same finger on a different chip)
Reinstall them and that worked for me on a dx4500 with original epson carts in

If you have carried out 4 to 5 head cleans, waited about 8 hours and done another 3 or head cleans doing nozzle checks after each clean (as recommended by the manual) and there is still no improvement then you will need a third party head cleaning solution such as this one:
Other makes & brands are available just google "inkjet head cleaning solution" Hope this helps.
