Epson printer barely printing and very light.

Specs: Windows 10
I recently put all new Epson cartridges into my Epson WF-2530 printer and suddenly it is barely printing. Any print is very light. Software is apparently up to date

Moving this to the General Hardware forum...

My WF-3450 has a "clean print head" feature. I recently had very light printing, ran the dot test (which failed miserably) then ran the "clean print head" operation. That solved the issue.

On the WF-3450, all of this is available via the touch screen.

Was the printer working OK before the cartridge swap? Did you install "Genuine Epson" ink?
There are several print quality settings available. Draft will print very light.

Just for a check it would be nice to know what happens when you re-install the old cartridges, or any cartridge actually.
