Epson Photo R200 unrecognised cartridge message

I have an Epson Photo R200 and I use compatible ink cartridges, Worked fine when I was running Vista but I changed the operating system to XP a couple of days ago and now I get an unrecognised cartridge message and the printer is inoperable.I reinstalled the drivers as before and the same cartridges are in the printer. Any ideas?

Problem solved! I moved each cartridge up slightly to break contact and then snapped them back into place. Loaded a job up, pressed print and it started with no problem.

Photo R200 won't print


Did you use Epson Genuine Cartridges?

ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine Epson Cartridges. !!!!!!!!
That sounds like your problem.

In Purchasing Epson's CX 5400, CX4600, & CX7400 and more, I found out that Epson does not like Generic Printer Cartridges. I also Purchased a Brother. That also does not like Generic Print Cartridges. Color that should be Yellow, will turn out Green, Blue Brown, etc.

These printers have a CHIP that will detect if it is Generic or Genuine. When they see it’s Generic Cartridges, it will print lines thru the words, stripes across the picture and also do a mix match with the colors. It also will not let you print anything, if only one of the cartridges is empty.

I wanted to print only Black, and would not let me, because I did not have any ink in one of my cyan cartridges. Go figure.

That's what these Companies do., so they can keep selling the ink cartridges. Some Printers, are able to use Generic, and some are refillable. Some you can refill them up yourself and I heard, quite MESSY.

So I learned, thru trial and error, that you must use the ORIGINAL Genuine Cartridges for these PRINTERS. Some people say some models work fine compatible, but not mine.......


I had to replace the printer, but Epson, Lexmark & Brothers are always on sale. My Brother & Epson cost me $50.00 with Rebate. .

This is the only advice I can give you. If you find this helpful, pls rate me.

Thanks and Good Luck :0)

Why won't my CX9400F recognize Epson ink cartridges


The Epson CX9400F printer seems to require replacement of all the color ink cartridges, even if only the Black is empty.

I print almost exclusively in Black, but with my first change of Black, I was forced to change all the color. At the time I thought Epson did not provide completely filled color ink cartridges.

Just yesterday, I replaced Black and the printer complained it did not recognize the rest of color cartridges. So I replaced all the other color ink cartridges and now it works fine.

You might want to check out www.clickinks.com for cheaper, mail order alternatives which are Epson ink compatible, if you are not in a hurry.

Epson photo r200


Sadly, if only one cartridge is empty, an Epson printer won't print. But, you can bypass that by using a chip re-setter. They have them in refill stores. By using a chip re-setter, you assign a new serial number to your cartridge, thus "fooling" the printer you have put a new cartridge in. Then, you don't need to refill all the cartridges.

Printer= Epson stylus Photo R200=will not print in black


The printer is designed so that you have to have ink in all the ink cartridges. They sell more ink this way. I have the same printer and investigated this a few years ago. there is no work around. Peter

Epsom R200 COPY INK DOESNT WORK


There is no solution, I have tried this myself, there are compatible inks for this product, you just got the wrong ones, However it may only be down to one of the inks, check the ink levels before removing, if all empty, then they are not compatible.
