Are you using compatible ink cartridges? When a compatible cartridge is empty in an Epson printer the printer reports "Cartridge not recognised". This is Epson's way of scaring you into using Epson branded cartridges. Just change the cartridge and it should be OK.
If it's not that issue then maybe the chip on the cartridge is faulty. Again, just change the cartridge.
Help me please my Epson Stylus SX215 black ink won`t print. I cleaned the head 3-5 times and the nozzle but it still wont`t print black , it is brand new.Is it because the printer didn`t work maybe 2 months. Yesterday i bought all inks and the other are working , the black no :[ please help
The Epson Stylus C110 is a stylish-looking color printer with a black body. The top of the unit has a glossy piano finish, which gives it a touch of class. The Stylus C110 weighs in at 3.9 Kg, leaves a footprint of 43.5 cm x 24 cm and stands only 16.1 cm tall. It may not be the smallest ever, but it's definitely smaller than many printers out in the market.
The top cover opens up to reveal the cartridge bay, where you can access the cartridges when you need to change them.
As you may be able to see above, there are actually five cartridges in this printer. This is quite unusual, because in addition to the three color cartridges, there are two black cartridges instead of one. This is a clever move and is actually useful when you use this printer in office. When one black cartridge gets empty, the other one takes over and gives you time to replace the empty one with no downtime, thus leaving productivity unaffected. Also, since it uses individual ink cartridges, you save money because you only have to replace the empty cartridge. This printer is based on piezoelectric technology, which relies on ink being pumped out onto the paper by piezoelectric crystals that change shape when an electric charge is applied.
Compatibility issues. The epson cartridge has an intellidge chip so the printer's sensor can read the cartridge properly.
Try to take the cartridge out then put it back in to the printer. Let it charge like it normally does.
Use an epson cartridge. Log on to epson.com to get the compatible cartridge for your printer.
They cut costs on Epson compatible cartridges by using low quality ink and chips or not resetting the chips at all. Sounds like you got cartridges that the chips were not reset on so your printer thinks all the cartridges are empty. I own a Cartridge World ink refilling store and I would never recommend purchasing compatible Epson cartridges from anyone. I would buy refills of Epson brand cartridges and make sure the seller reset the chips.
Some of Epson's cartridges went bad that way. It may be a bad cartridge. Get a new one, pull that one out and see what happens. If it works, call Epson for a refund. They had a class action suit for that type of thing, they lost and paid off. I would think they will help you right away.
Im sorry to inform but yes, Epson ink jet printers require all of the ink cartridges to have ink in them in order to print any color, black and white, or grayscale images. Epson printers contain a permanent print head that needs to be charged with all colors to work. Even when users are printing black text only, a small amount of color ink is used to keep the print head charged for color printing and prevent air bubbles from entering the color print nozzles which can damage the print head. Therefore, once one of the cartridges are expended, the printer signals you to replace the cartridge in order for printing to continue.
