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

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.

Here is the good news - You do not need to fiddle with dodgy reset programs anymore - EPSON can provide you with the reset tool - This maintenance message is when your ink pads couner have reached their target - this will prevent ink from overflowing and making a big mess.

Go to this website
http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/InkPadsForm.jsp

Fill out the information and download their reset tool - but please read the caution - you must replace the ink pads ! do not ever attempt to reset and keep using your printer - eventually your pads won't hold more ink and you will get ink flowing out of your printer, even on the inside and damage your circuit boards.

Of course changing the pads is not an easy thing, you have to take the printer apart and I don't recommend it - so the easy method is to locate the waste ink tube and have it connected to a container outside your pritner to collect ink.

Want to install one yourself, easy, follow the instructions here
http://www.wasteink.co.uk/waste-ink-mods/epson-r285-mod/

be very careful not to pull too much on the tube so it does not disconnect from the pump. Once you have your tube redirected into a waste bottle outside, you can run the reset program outlined above.

Good luck.

Printer says "Install ink cartridges correctly and then hit ok"


Try putting genuine ink it. If it still refuses to recognise the carts then it need to go back to Epson for a warranty repair. As an Epson eng 90% of the time, rubbish compatible cartridges are the source of such issues. They can even make the printer stop recognising genuine carts.

Do not mention to Epson that you used compatibles or they may refuse the warranty repair.

Two ways round this one. 1. Download this software www.ssclg.com install it and learn to use it- it carries out many functions for Epson printers. 2. Prize off the chip on an emptied of original Epson cartridges ans replace the compat chips with the Epson ones. Set the above utility to reset the cartridge chips 0r Purchase from most the the ink supplier a Zip-It chip re-setter. Also take a look at www.fixyourownprinter.com
