I changed all of the cartridges over to the refillable ones from CISinks. Almost immediately, the light cyan line filled with air. I tried printing a bunch of cyan pages and would occasionally get a line or two to print across the page. I ran numerous head cleaning cycles over the course of a few days with no results. Finally, I put in a new Epson cartridge in the light cyan slot and ink started flowing again. As soon as the light cyan started flowing, both magenta lines filled with air and stopped printing. This is infuriating. I never had this problem with cartridges from any other vendor. Does anyone have any ideas why this might be happening? All of the cartridges are full and the printer shows them all as full.

Hello Jharr. You simply need to prime your cartridges. The best way to do this would be to remove the plug that sits on top of the cartridges(it looks round and clear with a dot in the middle) Once you remove the plug, insert your syringe on the hole that was exposed without the needle and start drawing air out from that hole. As soon as you draw all of the air remove the syringe and quickly plug the hole back in.
