Hi with your Epson machine normally its the print head that has dried up and the ink is not able to get on to the paper have you used the head cleaning on the machine? this can help and some people claim that using head cleaning liquid works (I have not found them to be much use)
if you have tried all the above then its down to replacing the print heads and this is not for the DIY person and in the Uk it usually not an economical repair
sorry Ian

Printer has ink but not printing at all. Paper goes through the printer but nothing on the paper.


Remove your color/black catridge and rub their head with toilet paper/soft paper neatly until the ink stain on the paper. On the same way it also caused by ink over flow. To solve the ink over flow rub it carefully.. thanks

Check your Catridges, they might be dried up if new, or empty, Remove them shake them to feel a presence of ink or tap them on a piece of paper to verify if ink will comeout if not then they are empty and need to be replaced they they have a bit of ink you need to shake and try printing again if this persists change the catridges, also make sure that the Printer is Clean, verify the Catridge Carrier for any dry ink deposits.

Take the Colour catridge first turn it upside down and u will see a small copper plate on the catridge from where the ink comes out....... Place the wet paper towel using ur thumb on the Copper plate and press it a lit bit for 10 Seconds...... Now remove it and see whether u see any ink on the paper towel.......... U should see some ink on it now place the dry paper towel on the ink catridge in the same way........ Now do the same procedure again.......... Do the same procedure twice on the Black Catridge................. Now take the dry paper towel and turn the direction of the cartridge so that u can see a Copper plate on it with small boxes just clean that copper plate with the Dry Paper Towel..........

sometimes the print heads will become blocked. Take the catridges out and put a piece of toilet paper across the head and see if ink bleeds through. if not try moistening some kitchen paper and gently cleaning the heads.
