My EPSON printer won’t print and has ink

In EPSON printers, the print head is the part that is responsible for printing and is located in the printer. On it we normally install the ink cartridges.

The cartridges have been installed in the printer for a long time and the ink is not in optimal condition. The manufacturer recommends using the cartridges within 6 months after they are installed in the printer. We will have to replace them with new ones.
