Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

If the printer was recently disused for a long time, say several weeks to a month, then you might need to do a multiple-head-cleaning procedure on it to restore it to operating condition again.

Let me know if you would like to try this. And let me know what kind of computer you are printing from, whether it is a Windows PC or an Apple computer running MAC OS X.

Check the ink levels in the cartridges in the printer, using the software for your printer provided by Epson.

Let me know what you find.

Also, what paper stock are you using, to try to print upon?
