Sometimes a problem is with the printhead if it does that. Most likely a printhead. I'm sorry. Print a nozzle test pattern and you will be able to see what color has extra ink. If you need further help, I’m available over the phone at https://www.6ya.com/expert/alex_22751bbefa74c3d0

One of the suggestions I would have made has already been offered. Another would be the heads (contacts which if dirty could be telling the printer that a new cartridge is empty. That is quite likely if the printer has not been used in a while. You could try cleaning the head with a cotton swab dipped in either alcohol or electronic contact cleaner. The eec would probably be better to use as it is specifically intended for such use and won't "flash", but it is "pricey" and might also be difficult to find.

Do nozzle check. Is it perfect? If only one or two nozzle missing, it must be "good result" in photo quality mode printing. But if, there is too much nozzle missing, result is no good. If nozzle check is perfect, but the result is not satisfied, check the PF scale and PF scale sensor.

The problem is the print head, The ink cartrige for this printer is just a little bottle of ink. What really causes problem in it IS THE CLOGGED HEAD. If you have skill to reach thepen of the head (part that touchs the paper) use a quill tip or rag soak on water and clean it. Or go to EPSON SITE AND ORDER A HEAD CLEANNER FLUID TO POUR INSIDE THE HEAD AND CLEAN IT.

Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out in the print head nozzles.If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages,then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer thanreplace the print head.
