I had the same problem too.  I went to the Epson website and they gave instructions to shake the cartridge 4-5 times prior to installing.   It worked!!!  I tried alot of things before I saw that I needed to shake the cartridge.  Definitely give this a try if you haven't already.

Hi,

It sounds like you have incompatible cartridges for your printer... Some folks have reported that disabling the Status monitor and turning the printer off/on, plus rebooting the computer can solve this but that's just something I've heard.

You may want to double check with the ink supplier that they have provided the correct cartridges for your DX rather than a CX model.

Epson printer CX9300 error B73 cannot recognise ink cartridge


A clone cartridge is a type of third-party ink cartridge that uses an identical chip to the original ink cartridge. People buy cloned cartridges to save money, since original cartridges are more expensive. However, sometimes the Epson printer does not recognize the cloned ink cartridge. After you install the cartridge, you might receive a message that says "An ink cartridge cannot be recognized." In this case, you will have to disable the Epson printer monitor.

Epson stylus dx6000 error message e-02 have tried


Hi

Chances are the mechanism to recognize the ink cartridges is already damage and it may cause a lot having it replaced. I suggest to get a new printer instead specially if you have tried reseating the ink cartridges several times and won't work still.

Thanks for using Fixya

Epson Stylus SX400 "Ink cartridges cannot be recognized"


Try this: First check which cartridge(s) are not being recognized. In my case where I replaced all three color cartridges, two were recognized right away but one was not. You find out by sending a print request to the printer and looking at the ink cartridge levels diagram in the dialog window. In my case two of three were fine but one had a red X on it. So I removed it and cleaned the contacts with alcohol then rocked it in the slot after pressing it in. It was recognized and the charging process began as normal.

"Ink cartridges cannot be recognized" when using genuine Epson


i had this happen to me twice with two different people, it is highly possible that your black inks are defective, its also highly possible that one of the other inks are causing this error. take them all out, and put one and see what happens, do this one at a time until you see something screwey.

also possible, the contacts on the printhead are dirty or are pushed in.

also possible, bad printhead.

Epson Stylus DX 8400


If ink cartridge Unrecognizable, there are two posibilities : Chip Error at ink tank, or printer error. For chip error, try to plug the ink tank to another printer (same type). If the ink tank recognized by other printer, so the problem is printer.
So ;
1. Check chip conector at head carriage.
2. Check the wiring of the head, and chip.
If two point above is ok, the last action is check the power supply and board. It may be epprom is damage.

Ink not compatiable


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.

Epson stylus dx 7450 printer


You have a wide format printer but it has the same basic principle as the desktops. You can buy remanufactured cartridges which were reset for you. Or you can refill them. If you refill them, you need a resetter because Epson cartridges have a chip on them which needs to be reset. Because when they are empty, the printer will recognize it as empty and will not function till you put in a new cartridge. If you bought a remanufactured cartridge, and your printer won't recognize it, you need to go back to who sold you the cartridge and either have them reset it or give you a replacement.
