Re: Failing to install ink cartridges
The cartridges have small electronic chips on them that notify the printer if the same cartridge is refilled and used again. To get around this check you will need to have atleast two empty cartridges so that you can refill and cycle them there by fooling the printer's check. Let me knoe if you need any more info regarding this.

Regarding your recent inquiry about the Epson T071 ink cartridge error message ("Ink Light is red", "Cartridge Not Recognized", "Replace Cartridge", "Installed ink cartridge is expended." or similar cartridge/printer alert message) associated with your Epson SX200 printer, the cartridge probably has a mis-programmed smart chip...
NOTE: If you had the cartridge refilled, the cartridge chip must be reset. Re-programming, which typically yields a green light to show success, it does not always result in correct smart chip reprogramming. It is also possible they may have forgotten to re-program the ink cartridge. If a compatible/clone cartridge, it could be a reprogramming issue or defective chip (which is common). Or, such a failure could be an electrical failure of the ink cartridge itself*. Unfortunately there is nothing you can do from home....the chip(s) need to be re-programmed (at refiller) or replaced with a new cartridge from vendor.
*OTHER POSSIBLE CAUSES OF FAILURE:
Either the external chip or internal ink sensor is electrically bad (the internal ink sensor detects if cartridge is really out of ink). If you return the cartridge to your retail refiller and they re-program the cartridge(s) a 2nd time but the "replace cartridge" message, or similar blocking message persists, then this is the likely cause and the cartridge will need to be replaced with a new one.
1) Confirm if this is just a nuisance/annoyance alert (i.e. "non-genuine" cartridge ) vs. an actual 'unrecognized cartridge' alert (i.e. Red X's on printer display / Windows pop-up message). Please visit the following Inkjet411 support page which will help you delineate the difference: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=73
2) On some Epson printer models you may need to scroll thru the menu options AT THE PRINTER'S CONTROL MENU (i.e. right arrow key) to help determine which specific ink cartridge is actually causing the 'Unrecognized Cartridge' error condition. On the other hand, for general 'non-genuine' cartridge alerts, typically you can bypass these errors by clicking thru the acknowledgement prompts or via the arrow keys: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1939
3) We suggest you remove all the ink cartridges, inspect the smart-chips condition (on rear side) and ensure there are no cuts/gashes or ink residue present on the micro-chip surfaces. To be sure we suggest you clean the micro-chip surfaces; click here to see 2 different pictures of this along with cleaning instructions: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1939
4) If the error continues (following ink tank re-programming a 2nd time), then we suggest you install a new genuine Epson ink cartridge into the printer to verify the permanent PRINTHEAD is functioning ok. Here is how the PRINTHEAD works: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=2054
NOTE 2: Following refilled cartridge installation, your printer/computer may display an ink alert message such as "non-genuine cartridge" or "you have not installed genuine Epson ink cartridges" - these are COMPLETELY NORMAL alerts when using refilled ink cartridges. Press proceed/continue/accept/yes/OK to dismiss the prompt. In some cases you may have to scroll over using the arrow keys to dismiss the alerts. Additional alerts may be displayed the first time you go to print or copy - dismiss the alerts accordingly to resume normal print operations. For more information on Epson ink cartridge alert messages please visit: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1939
CAUTION: Be advised, the use of compatible/clone cartridges (i.e. sold thru the internet from overseas) are known to be problematic and may cause printer errors or permanent PRINTHEAD damage (especially for 3rd party inks which contain volatile organic compounds or VOCs). We do NOT suggest refilling these types of ink cartridges.....refilling of Epson original/genuine ink cartridges is only suggested!
NOTE 3: If, after replacing the cartridge(s), with brand new Epson Original ink cartridge(s), is the only solution which corrects the problem, then you likely have a defective cartridge (internal ink level monitoring circuit), unrelated to the refilled cartridges. If, after replacing the cartridge, or cartridges, with brand new Epson Original ink cartridges, does NOT correct the problem, then you may have a defective PRINTHEAD (i.e. permanent electrical sub-assembly which the cartridges plug into). For more information please visit our support page which explains the natural degradation of PRINTHEADs over time: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=2934

Replacing Ink Cartridges
Make sure you have a new ink cartridge before you begin. You must install new
cartridges immediately after removing the old ones.
Do not open ink cartridge packages until you are ready to install the ink. Cartridges are
vacuum packed to maintain reliability.
Leave the expended cartridge installed until you have obtained a replacement, or the ink
remaining in the print head nozzles may dry out.
1. Turn on your printer.
2. If an ink cartridge is expended, the error and ink lights on the control

priming the ink. This takes about 1 1/2 minutes.26 Maintaining Your Printer
When the P Power light stops flashing and the error and ink lights go
out, ink charging is finished.
10. Close the ink cover, then close the document cover.
Never turn off the your Epson printer while ink is charging or you'll waste ink. If the
error and ink lights remain on after the print head moves into its home
position, an ink cartridge may not be installed properly. Press the y Stop button
again, and then press the ink cartridge down securely.
If you replaced a cartridge while copying a document or photo, cancel printing and
make sure your original is still placed correctly on the document table. Then copy
your original again.

# Determine which ink cartridges are not recognised. # With the ink cartridge holder in the ink cartridge replacement position, lift up the ink cartridge holder lid and take the cartridge or cartridges out. # Check that the cartridge is a genuine Epson ink cartridge - look for the EPSON branding and T0xxx codes on the cartridge labels. # Check that the cartridges are correct for your Epson product. # Wipe the green Intellidge Chip on the cartridge that is not recognised. # Check the chip contacts within the ink cartridge holder for any debris or dried ink and wipe with a lint-free cloth if necessary. # Check that the plastic at the bottom of the cartridge has been pierced. # Check that the cartridges are in the correct slots. # Reinstall the cartridges into the ink cartridge holder in the correct order. # Push the ink cartridge down firmly. It should click into place. # Repeat this for any ink cartridges that were removed. # Push the ink cartridge holder lid down. It should clip into place and be secure. # Press the Stop button, this will return the ink cartridge holder to the right hand side of the unit. # If the error light flashes after the print head returns to the home position, the ink cartridge may not be installed properly. # If the red light is no longer displayed, but Status Monitor still reports a Non-Genuine Ink warning. # If the red light is still on the printer, and Status Monitor indicates that an ink cartridge is not recognised, follow the steps below. # If the problem remains, there may be a fault with the ink cartridge.
Maybe the cartridges are not placed properly! Remove the cartridges and put it back again, making sure they are placed properly, normally you will hear a clicking sound when cartridges are placed properly to position. Good luck!
Please follow the instructions below to ensure correct installation:
