Question about Epson Stylus C46 InkJet Printer

Epson c46 printer

Hi, I acquired this printer second hand. I bought 2 "compatable" cartridges but the printer wont recognise the colour, altho it hasn't rejected the black which came from the same source. Is there any other solution than buying a chip reprogrammer?
Grateful for any advice. Maizie

Hi i have a epson stylus sx400 ansd when im trying to print pictures the faces are coming out purple???


It is possible that the colour ink cartridge needs to be replaced. Be sure to use original Epson cartridges as Generic ones give problems.

Epson DX7450 won't recognise compatible cartridges


This is a common problem and is caused by faulty or missing chips onthe compatible cartridges. You will need to get them replaced otherwise the printer will not operate. Contact the vendor where you bought them from and ask for repalcements or a refund.

Compatible ink cartridges dx8400


Epson cartridges are microchipped.

Do your new cartridges carry the same chip?

If not, they will not work.

If all else fails, return them to the supplier and explain they are not recognised by your printer.

Try running the head cleaning cycles from printer utility. then try reprinting. You can press ink button for 3secs as well to auto clean printhead.

Hope this helps

My epson r285 wont recognise compatable inks


My Epson R285 will not recognise compatible cartridges,mainly the black.I ran out of black ink and installed a compatible cartridge but it did not recognise it.To get the printer running I had to buy a genuine one which worked.I then ran out of all the other colours soon after and installed compatible ones which were accepted.I have now ran out of the black again but the printer will not accept the compatible cartridge.How can I solve this problem as the printer has accepted black compatibles before.
Thanks Padgy

Ink cartidges


Without knowing where your "compatible " cartridges came from, it's difficult to say. The correct cartridge types for a 1290 are T007 and T009. Do your cartridges with lugs show these numbers? In general, compatible cartridges will fit into the cartridge carrier without problem. Yes, Epson did fit plastic key lugs to their cartridges to artificially make cartridge A different to cartridge B, when in reality they were identical e.g. C46 and C48. Now, compatible cartridges for your printer are incredibly cheap on E-Bay. My advice is just to throw away the troublesome luggy ones you have and buy some more on E-Bay - they will fit without trouble.
