Didn't use my printer for about 2 years and brought it back out to use. Everything else works fine on the printer but it's not printing any ink, just completely blank pages of paper. I've tried cleaning, deep cleanings, new ink, cleaning the printer head twice and still just getting blank pages coming out. There are not even any ink streaks on the paper. Any recommendations on things I can do before I completely give up?
Since the cleanings and deep cleaning did not resolve the issue, the printer would require service.

Two years is a LONG time to not print at all on an inkjet printer. Chances are it is hopelessly dried out and clogged.
New ink tanks don't help if the print HEAD is the problem. A new printer is in store for you.
Print something occasionally, like weekly, that uses all the colors. Doesn't have to be heavy ink coverage, just enough to see that ink is flowing onto the paper.
