I have an Epson Stylus SX435W printer. I have recently put in new ink cartridges, since when it either prints only every third line or refuses to print at all. How do I deal with this, please?

Did this happen also with the old print cartridges as well? Or only with the new ones?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

No, not with the old cartridges, only the new ones.

ok, were these refills?
And just to be clear, you put the old cartridges back in and it prints without issues correct?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I suppose they were new cartridges; I bought them from Staples. The old cartridges can't be put back in because they were exhausted.

ok, you can get refills, but if you bought them new, and they have Epson on them they are authentic.
