Question about Epson PictureMate Photo Printer
Bran new printer, used tempory cartidrige that came with when I got printer as a gift. just got new camera wanted to print pictures(of course needed new ink) replaced with new ink cartridge and now printer wont read. say Please insert cartridge is there somplace i can take it or send it to fix the problem?
The problem might be the cartridge sensor and or it's door sensor. Make sure the cartridge chip is clean (I wiped mine a couple of times with dry cotton swab and blew away any lints). Insert the cartridge and lock it, pushing and applying some pressure on it's right edge to make sure it (cartridge chip) makes good contact with the sensor (pin contacts) within the printer. Close the door and press firmly on the left edge of door access to ensures door magnet holds door closed allowing right door hinge extension to close sensor switch properly.

First try taking out the cartrage and try uninstalling the printer off your computer then reinstalling it. before putting in your cartrage make sure your computer detects it and your computer should tell you that it detcets no ink then try replacing it. if the problem consists make sure youave the right cartgae for that printer. Then check that nothing (paper, pen, anything) is stuck or jamming the computer blocking the cartage sensors,
