Question about Epson L200 Original Continuous Ink Tank System cis Inkjet Printer And Scanner

Open Question

Epson refill L200- The printer cannot recognized the refill black ink. The ink level indicator cannot detect that that the black ink is already empty, but it is empty already by manual checking.

I read some solutions online but they seem cannot help. The ink level indicator supposed to show "How To" and "Technical Support" button but only "Technical Support" button is displayed. I already reinstalled the printer's driver.

SOURCE: Epson cx7800 won't detect magenta ink.

It seems likely that either your magenta cartridge is faulty (or empty - the ink monitor doesn't show how much ink is actually left, only the amount used subtracted from a presumed full cartridge when new). The first thing to be sure of is that you have a good cartridge - install a new one. You can save the existing one for later use once things are OK again. If this produces no results, you can now be reasonably confident that you have blocked magenta nozzles. Note that putting in a cartridge and taking it out again several times will aggravate the situation by getting air into the system.

You can now try soaking the print heads for 24 hours (or more), as follows. Turn the printer on, and as soon as the print head moves out of its parking position, pull the power cord out of the back, or turn the printer off at the mains. You may now carefully move the print head by hand over to the left hand side out of the way. Look inside the print head parking area on the right and you will see a small rubber cup that comes up to cover the print nozzles when the head is parked (to stop it drying out). Use a syringe or dropper to fill this cup with head cleaning fluid or distilled water. DO NOT USE TAP WATER. Carefully push the print head by hand fully into its parking position so that the cup full of fluid comes up over the print head. Do not turn the printer on at any stage in this process. Leave this for at least 24 hours, then turn the printer on and try a head clean/nozzle check again. If nothing, repeat the process once more. If still nothing, post a new comment detailing what you have done and the results.

SOURCE: Epson printer says "cannot recognize ink cartridges".

Are you using genuine epson cartridges? Many generics simply dont work on the newer printers. Once the printer decides the cartridge is empty, it sends a signal to the chip and that's it. You might hear ink, but if the chip says empty you can't use it. It also has the annoying habit of doing this when there's still 10-15% of the ink left.
I use reusable cartridges from http://www.ccs-digital.com They hold 2/3 more ink and the chips automatically reset to full if you remove and re-insert the cartridge. Instead of replacing the entire cartridge when it's empty, you pop out an internal ink tank and replace just that. So you know the chip has already been recognized by your printer. The ink tanks cost under $3. I think these are a brilliant invention.

Cant get my ink cartridges to work


This model Epson printer may only let you use genuine Canon/Epson printer cartridges. If you try to refill these ink cartridges it will not work because the Epson cartridges have an embedded chip in the cartridge that detects the empty cartridge even though it has been refilled.

EPSON SERIES L200 PRINTER DOES NOT PRINT BLACK COLOR


To everybody having issues with black not printing on the L200, I just got off the phone with Epson, and these steps solved it for me:

1.- Open the ink containers (lay flat and open carefully to avoid ink spillage).
2.- Run the Clean maintenance procedure from the Epson control panel
3.- Try printing a page with black features (still with the ink containers open)
3.- If it still won't print, try the Full Clean (it uses more ink, but in my case it was necessary)
4.- Try printing a page again (at this point it worked for me).
5.- Close the ink containers and put back on the side of the printer.

According to the Epson representative, this is the most common cause for printing issues with the L200 because the initial ink load creates a high vacuum and then the ink can't flow.

Epson Stylus NX415 does not recognize ink cartridges. Cartridges are Epson 88's. Worked for awhile, and then stopped recognizing them. Tried powering down the printer, cleaning the cartridges, turning...


Epson Printers are sensitive in terms of Ink Cartridges.. The latest Epson Printers does not have ink reseter.. Ink reseter are already built-in on the ink cartridges.. The problem on this printer is when you have a cartridge on your printer, let say, 30% of the ink level, even though your ink is new, and you change it without using the right ink replacement method, it will recognize your ink as a 30% ink level. When your ink level drops to 0%, but you have remaining 70% of the ink, it does not recognize it anymore. The chip on the ink cartridge is already registered as an empty cartridge.

I changed theblack ink cartridge twice and it still won't print in black, colours are printing but no black


Ink level data is stored in a chip of the cartridge. Once the cartridge is empty, ink low message will appear eventhough you refill the cartridge. You need to deactivate ink level detection function to continue printing in case of usage of refill ink .

My Epson NX415 does not recognize refilled and reset cartridges. What can I do about it?


Don't let your ink levels drop below 25% before refilling and resetting your cartridges. There is an inner and an outer chip on these cartridges. The inner chip disables the outer chip when it's contacts are no longer bathed in ink. So, it doesn't matter if you "reset" the outer chip after refilling your empty cartridge because the chip was disabled. I'm really curious how you refilled these cartridges yourself without souring yourself on refilling from the experience. I own a Cartridge World ink refilling store and I refilled a set of these cartridges when we had replacement chips available (we don't now because our chip distributor was violating Epson patents) and it was an absolute mess, took forever, and the cartridges still didn't work in our test printer.

How do i go about refilling epson T5591/2/3/4/5/6


Before you can have unlimited refilling you must need this devices:

Option 1: The chip resetter which you will need to manually reset the cartridge before refilling to enable the printer to recognize a new cartridge.

Heres the link where you can buy the resetter:
http://cgi.ebay.ph/CHIP-RESETTER-For-EPSON-T5591-T077120-T078120-T0791-INK_W0QQitemZ290276640766QQcmdZViewItemQQptZBI_Toner?hash=item4395d607fe




Option 2: You a new set of empty cartridges with autoreset chips in it. No manual resetting needed, what you need is to refill and monitor the ink level.

Explanation: When the printer detected that the cartridge is empty, the printer sends data to the cartridges and the cartridge understand what the printer says, then the cartridge automatic chip resetter will re trigger the logic circuit built in into it to reset into full ink level.

Here is the link of the autoreset chip what Im taking about:

Canon ip1200 black cartridge wont recognize after i refill


Dear lim,
Here a solution for you. The cartridge of this printer has memory chip that store ink level data inside. Once the cartridge is empty we cannot restore ink level data to be full. To continue using refilled cartridge you need to deactivate ink level detection function first. Perform this step: when the message 'The following cartridge cannot be recognized' appears press Resume/Cancel button. Do this for each cartridge you refill;if you refill both black & colour cartridge do this tip two times (once for each cartridge).
Please rate this as fixya ok.

Refilling ink tanks


Nowdays, the printer manufacturers have a strategy of using cartridges with small electronic chips on them, so that the printer wont recognize a refilled cartridge unless the chip has been tampered with.

I've heard that with canon there is a way around the ink-level chip monitoring on the cartridge by doing the following:
  1. Power off printer
  2. Hold RESUME button then press and hold POWER, the beeper will sound once.
  3. Hold POWER and release RESUME
  4. Press RESUME twice
  5. Release POWER button
  6. When the indicator lights steady, press RESUME three(3) times. The indicator should be orange.
  7. Press POWER to set data
I am not 100% sure of that as my printer is an epson and there are a couple of different ways to reset the chips for epsons, but I thought I'd give you the chance t try it. After all, what can it hurt, right? It's already not working.
