Default epson printer problems ... HELP !!!

Hi i'm new to the whole sublimation thing and all i want to do is do a few bits n bobs every now n then for myself and mates etc..
bought the mug press/heat press/new epson printer and ciss ink system and ink ...ready to go you'd think ..

ok so i got the lot set up and printed a couple of sheets in the new printer ...great ...
tried to print again and NOTHING .... after numerous clean heads later ...still nothing ...obviously used more ink than i could possibly have done had they printed...

Anyone know of any solution to the printer problem?

only a cheap *** 14 epson s21 but thats all i need for the moment.

any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds like the printer sat too long and the heads dried up. Move the heads off the cap station, this is where the heads rest when not in use. Add a few drops of dish soap to a cup of water and carefully pour enough in the cap station to soak but not overflow. Move the heads back over the cap station and let sit overnight, then try a cleaning and a head test. You may have to do this a few times. It has worked for me in the past Good luck
