Continuous Ink System Epson R1900 "Ink on" light illuminated

I am trying to install CIS for Epson Stylus R1900. One of the "ink on" lights stays on. The other 7 turn off. Have tried adjusting/reinstalling. The CIS has auto reset chips. Is it likely that my chip is bad on the one cartridge?

Hi, the most possible is that your chip on that cartridge is broken or damaged. You may need to replace a new chip.

Or you didn't contact well the chip with printer contact pins. Try many times.

If still problems pls feel free to ask me.

You must reset the cartridges chip. About " there is plenty of ink in the printer " you mean ink leakeage in to printer ? If yes, first thing is to clean the printer ( the ciss is not instaled corectly) and reinstall the ciss. The ink tank of ciss should stay at the same level with the printer.

Have a look at this Adjustment Program Epson R1900 - Resetter Epson R1900

I have not tried but I do not believe there is a hardware solution. Also check this site:

They sell a set of refillable cartridges with an auto reset feature. They have a video which is also posted on YouTube which shows the refilling of their system.

Would be interested to hear if the softwareresetter works out.

Ink cartridges cannot be recognized

The printer must detect unique 'chips' on the ink cartridges before it will print. Non-Epson ink cartridges may not have the right chips. Or there may be a bad electrical connection between the carriage assembly and the chips when cartridges are in place. Anything preventing the chips from being electrically connected, (including dirty contacts), can cause the error.
In my case the chips were not staying in place on the ink cartridges. Since I am using a CIS (Continuous Ink System), the chips had been replaced, but were not staying in alignment with the contacts on the carriage. I used a very small amount of hot melt glue to secure the loose end of each chip to each cartridge. I have not received the error message again.

Changed from cartridges to cont. ink system. Now

Hi Dave,

Chances are the problem is that you haven't removed the travel plugs that allow air into the reservoir part of your CIS. This is vital because the air needs to replace ink used up in printing and if it can't do this the air creates something of a vacuum that holds back the ink.

Also worth checking that you haven't got any crimped (folded) tubing or clamps that are still engaged that shouldn't be.

Hope that helps..

Epson d88 printer just floods the paper with ink

Sounds a lot like you have an ink pressure issue and at a guess you are using a CIS (Continuous Ink Supply) system.

I would refer back to the documentation that came with your printer and make sure that you are not overpressuring the printhead with the ink reservoirs set too high or some part of the priming process has been missed.

More information about your printers setup would definitely help ID more specific issues that could be causing this.
