I would expect you used a refilled cartridge.
The epson cartridge needs to be reprogrammed to say its full again.
You can get the reprogrammer of ebay very cheaply.
you just hold the re programer on the contact pins for a couple of seconds until the light flashes.
Several printer manufactures are now doing this to lock you into their ink cartridges.

Yes I understand that, I think your proilem maybe that there is dirt/ ink on the slide bars. ( Sublimation ink ias notorious for imparting a residue)
So take a cloth and clean those metal rods that the cartridges slide along. They should reveal a lot of dirt on the rag. Then use some wd 40 or light sewing machine oil on another rag and wipe on wipe off. They only need a very slight amount.
Usually when this happens the printer fails to goes through
the motions of the printing process, kind of stands still with indicator lights
just blinking away. This could be as a result of either of these scenarios. i.Ink cartridge
has developed incompatibility or is incompatible
The Solution is to try an older/another cartridge (doesn’t matter if ink
is finished. You must replace cartridge one at a time). If lights stop blinking
it confirms that your cartridge has become incompatible or developed
incompatibility. Also if your printer is the type that can work with only one
cartridge, remove one after the other (closing back the lid/cover) to determine
which in the set (black or color) has become incompatible. At the instance the
incompatible one is removed and you close the lid, the blinking will stop (for
printers that can print with one ink cartridge only). Just replace the
incompatible one and start printing again. In most cases the issue is always
with one cartridge. But if both are affected, you have to replace both. Because
of this type of problem, always keep used cartridges somewhere safe; they come
in handy for this type of troubleshooting. ii.The Cartridge
electronic panel is dirty
The electronic panel on the cartridge that makes contact with the
cartridge carrier inside the printer is dirty and needs cleaning. This electronic panel is front part of the
cartridge with copper “dots”.
Solution is to try to clean this panel with a piece of folded tissue paper
soaked in a bit of methylated spirit. Also try to clean the area in the
cartridge carrier/holder that makes contact with the cartridge’s electronic
panel (Usually this is more difficult). If you cannot reach it with your
fingers, use a stick or something with tissue wrapped around it. Allow to dry
well and return the cartridges, close the cover. The blinking should stop if
the electronic panel is the issue. Once the blinking stops the printer will
Check nozzle, do head cleaning procedure. Wait for 30 minutes. Check nozzle again. If there are no difference betwen to output of nozzle check, you have to cleaning head manually. Check for it at aicaxz solutiuon.
Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is
turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software
program that came with the printer. When the software
program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should
again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
