Question about Epson PictureMate Flash PM 280 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

EPSON PictureMate will not recognise printer cartidge.

I have an EPSON PictureMate which is telling me that the ink cartridge installed is not the necessary T557, when it clearly is. Is there anyway of overriding the printer and get it to accept that the correct cartirdge is installed?

This happened to me. I could not get any help. So I swabed the contacts w/alcohol and success!! Mind you, my Picture Mate is over 2 years old, I would not try this w/a printer under warranty unless directed by Epson.

Good Luck

Epson picturemate deluxe I installed a new ink cartridge but the screen says there is no cartridge.


It can be various reasons like..

Didn't remove protective tape on cartridge.
Didn't properly seat cartridge.
Contacts on carriage need to be cleaned.

You can clean them by cleaning the contacts on the old "empty" cartridges, then installing/removing them a few times.

Epson workforce 520 won't recognise ink cartidges


When replacing ink on the Epson Workforce 520, Ensure the cartridges have the correct/same number of gold contacts. Ive seen them with 7 and 9 gold square contacts and they were otherwise identical, and the ones with 9 contacts threw an "cartridge not recognized" error on the printer's dispay.

Compatible ink cartridges dx8400


Epson cartridges are microchipped.

Do your new cartridges carry the same chip?

If not, they will not work.

If all else fails, return them to the supplier and explain they are not recognised by your printer.

Cartidge problem


Many "compatible" cartridges are badly manufactured or even labeld wrong. These can damage or block the connectors on Epson printers. your best bet is go buy new ink and try them, then if it still dont recognise, you could buy some ink cleaning cartiridges and give them a try - Google "Epson Print Head cleaning" Failing that go buy a new printer - Epson's are real cheap new.
