Check your cartridge it must come with a cellphane or stripe of nylon which you must remove before inserting it into your printer

"WRONG CARTRIDGE" continues to flash on the screen.


I have experienced the "Wrong Cartridge" error about 4 times in four years. I have never bought a replacement print head. I do occasional printing each week. Typically the problem occurs after a color cartridge goes empty and the ink dried to the print head. The solution for me has been to remove the cartridges, remove the print head, place the print head in hot water in the kitchen sink (softens water based ink that has hardened)and then use a Q-Tip or tissue paper to clean the print head until it is nice and shiny. Reinstall the print head, insert ink cartridges that are not empty, let the printer cycle through a self-test, use the set button to accept vertical and horizontal print patterns and you'll be good to go!
If that doesn't fix it, you'll need to replace the printhead ($49-69 depending on where you buy it.

Red light on Flashing green light


I just got a new unit and it came with three defective ink cartridges - go to printer, right click, select Preferences and the window that pops up will have the cartridges illustrated with an X on the defective one. Epson replaced my defective cartridges at no charge - just the inconvenience of waiting for delivery.

Where did you buy the printer? Was it new? If you bought it from ebay, the seller has provided a new set of initialisation inks with a used printer. These inks only work with a printer which is brand new and completely unused. They mix with ink already in the system on first use and they cannot be used with another printer and cannot be used in a printer which has already gone through the initialisation process. There is however a work around. Let me know if you need it

Flashing ink refill light


Sometimes refilling them over and over doesn't work well. Once ok...but i suggest that you buy a new cartridge. I know that they are expensive but it will help. Also take some Rubbing alchohol and a q-tip...clean inside where the cartridge sits..that will help...this is for sure a bad ink cartridge
