    I have an epson styelus cx4600 all-in-one printer. I haven't touched it in about a year (i was using my other one). Anyways i connected my epson to the computer and everything seems to be fine but when i print there is no ink on the paper, like absolutely none. At first i thought it was because the ink was dry so i bought new cartridges (not refill, i bought new ones). Anyways its still printing blanks. Can u plz help me.

    These CX4600 machines are famous for their bad performance. Many people have complained to Epson and got a free 4800 as replacement. Even after warranty expired. Have you got the receipt?

    Also, they have built in print heads.

    All inkjets are prone to clogging of the fine nozzles in the print head if the printer is left unused for a period of time with the ink cartridges installed.

    If the cartridges have the print head, you can change the cartridges. Your printer does not. You could try ink head cleaning cartridges or you could remove the print head and soak it in ammonia.

    My advice is to throw it in the trash and buy a new printer if Epson will not replace it.

    use a fairly damp paper towel on the print head.
