Have you tried cleaning the print heads

Ink cartridge is probably clogged at the nozzle. Epsons had the problem of a non-usable cartridge as soon as it was removed from the printer. Not too sure about later models. You could try clearing it with a tooth pick then reinsert it. If it still fails, then you'd have to get a new one.

Have tried multiple nozzle checks, head cleaning etc

On my epson (different model) I use the arrow keys on the printer to select clean print head mode
