Epson Epson Stylus Color 740

PRINTER DOES NOT PRINT

I have an Epson Stylus color 740 printer: I changed cartridges
& my printer seems to go through the motions of printing but my sheet comes out blank. Can you help me!
Was the printer sitting for a long time before you changed the cartridges?

One of 2 possible problems. First, the nozzles in the printhead are clogged with dried ink. Second, the pump is not sucking ink through the printhead. The easy way to test the pump is to put some water on the capping pad (on right where the carriage rests when not working) and then run a cleaning cycle. If the water gets sucked down, the print head most likely is the problem. Hope this helps.
