Are you using genuine Epson ink tanks? If it worked for a bit after changing the ink then the print head may be plugged up. Some knock off ink is not milled fine enough to pass through the nozzles of some printers. I have found it isn't worth using anything but the brand name ink.

I assume you have checked the settings for the printer to verify you have them setup as needed.
