Epson printer problem

Hi hope someone here could help me (without cinical remarks) -
i was trying to recharge my Epson DX cartridges with a kit i bought on the internet, everything seemed to be working - i followed the instructions carefully and it even printed well 2 pages. then, a few hours later.. maybe a after moving the printer from one place to another, the blue cartridge started leaking inside. i managed to print 3 or 4 pages filled with blue stains after fixing the leakage and cleaning the printer, hoping the colour will be absorbed gradually but then the printer just went crazy - all it's possible lights went on and besides being "on" its absolutly not functioning..and the same after waiting a few days for the ink to dry..
tried to replace with original still empty cartridges i had at home... and still crazy..
is there anything i can do?? did i completely ruin it??

it looks like the head sensor of your printer was damage by the ink itself, it happen when you inserted your cartidges loose, the ink overflowed and cover the sensor.,
