Look for an air leak between cartridge and supply tank, a kink in the tube, a physical block or the stopper not being removed from the tank's air bleed hole and replaced by the (usually) supplied filter.

An air leak at the cartridge outlet spike can also cause this, but you'd encounter printing problems long before the carts ran empty.

The ink flow depends on the quite weak suction applied by the print heads — an almost indiscernable air leak anywhere in the line will stop it.
