Ink not compatiable

I have a epson stylus 1400. I just tried to put brand new (epson) ink in it. It give me a message that says "ink not compatiable". This is the same epson ink I have always used. It is T0792 / T0794. This is the correct ink. Why will the printer not recognize it ???

Hi. When I fitted the second set of cartridges to my Epson Stylus Photo 1400, the printer failed to recognize any of them, even though they were genuine Epson! I repeatedly installed and un-installed them without success. After giving it a bit of thought, I had a hunch that the contacts on the cartridges might not be making good contact with the contacts on the printer as the cartridges seemed a little loose. I removed each cartridge in turn and after putting some adhesive tape on the opposite end to the contacts, (there are grooves cut into this end, but the tape drops nicely into them when you install the cart) replaced them all. (This had the effect of pushing the cartridges harder against the contacts). Switched on again and all carts worked fine. So it seems that even Epson can't make the cartridges to fit their own printer properly! Having said that it's a great printer otherwise. I hope this is helpful to you.

Your yellow ink cartridge is not putting out any ink. Try cleaning cycles in groups of 3 (important). Print a nozzle check between each cycle. After a couple groups of 3, give up for a while and try again in a few hours. Try a new yellow cartridge, too.

My Epson Stylus Photo 1400 has the paper and ink LEDs flashing alternately and the message 'Parts inside your printer are at the end of their service life' comes up when trying to run a nozzle check. Is...


When you see this message you need to replace the parts or buy a new printer. It cost more to replace those parts that a brand new printer. All Epson's are like this . I had 4 Epsons and all 4 done this same thing. They are great printers but unfortunately they are like this.

Replaced a new cyan cartridge for Epson 1400. Printer ignored it.


Ye of course it could be faulty and Epsons are sometimes very fussy about using third party carts. Get it replaced at your store, try a different brand or buy a genuine Epson cart if you can afford it.

The problem can be two fold. Wrong cartridges, or blocked/damaged inkjet openings. Return it to the seller under warranty if its brand new. If it was fitted with non epson cartridges your warranty may be in question.

But I could almost guarantee the black qand the blue cartridges are faulty or their feed jets are

Epson 1400 won't print blacks


Hi

Many problems regarding Ink with Epson relate to using cheap ink consumables. I recommend you buy original Epson black ink catridge. I know its more expensive but you should see the black ink clear.

Be sure to run head alignment and clean printer option first with the current black ink then replace with the new original Epson ink catridge

Thanks

Andy

Reset ink-pad counter on epson stylus photo 1400


Hi,

The simplest way to do this is to grab a copy of the A10_IPR utility that Epson distribute to their customers...

The utility is available to North American customers if you register no this site page http://www.epson.com/ipr/

The utility is also know to be available in the wild if you search for "waste ink ipr".

Just remember to scan any download using a virus and malware scanner before you attempt to use it as some utilities contain trojans or similar nasties.

Hope that helps.
