SOURCE: Won't recognise ink cartridges - shows as empty.

For all cartridge and ink problems, go to my site.

Please go to my website http://www.the-inkstore.co.uk . I have the latest version of SSC Service Utility to download directly onto your computer and instructions on how to use it, what to click on etc etc. Click any of the Epson links if you can't find it, everything you need to know will be there, including printer Firmware resetting which sorts out a multitude of problems.

The 'maintenance required' problem with Epson printers has absolutely nothing to do with which cartridges you are using, it is a built in page counter in your printer firmware, which has a different maximum amount for each Epson model. Don't listen to old wives tales and heresay, we are the experts and it's an Epson scam to cause a lot of people to pay for maintenance or throw their printers away.
I haven't found a model that can't be reset with the latest version of SSC Serve or the manual reset on my site.

For Epson RX500 users there is also a manual reset on my site, as the SSC Serve software won't do it for you.
When using the program & choosing your printer from the list, it may have a weird name with 'x' in the model number, this is because some configurations are for many models in a series. For example, the C46 will be listed as C4x as it is for the C42, C44 & C46 models.

I hope this helps all Epson users to overcome the Epson scam of page counting and locking out until you pay their dealers money for maintenance.

If you like what I've done for Epson users, please show your appreciation by spreading the word and perhaps buying your ink from my site.

Happy trouble free printing

SOURCE: Canon Pixma IP600D - error code 6502

Sometimes the Canon printers which use PG-5BK/CL-8 colour cartridges with chips will give error massages like 6502 or other types of error message to do with the cartridges, which has the orange light flashing and the printer will not work. Follow this procedure which quite often resets the printer and allows it to resume printing.

When error is indicated, turn power switch off so green light is extinguished.

First hold down resume button and then hold down power button so both are held down at same time

When green light comes on, continue holding down power button and let resume button go, then press resume button twice. Then let power button go.

Then press resume button four times, power button should be released before doing this.

Wait until printer settles down, if power is off, turn on. If power will not come on, remove power cord from back of printer, then wait 15 seconds before plugging back in again and turn power on. This normally solves the error problem - if not go through same procedure again.

Incidentally, you may find that if the chips had previously been disabled, the low ink warnings are showing again and they will have to be disabled once more. This would indicate that the above procedure clears the firmware memory of the disabling of the chips, this may be useful if you need some warranty work done on your
printer after the chips had been disabled.

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.

SOURCE: my epson stylus cx6000 printer keeps showing

f you have just installed a new cartridge and you still see an ink related error message, the cartridge may be incorrectly installed. Follow these steps to make sure the cartridges are correctly installed:

  1. Make sure the Stylus CX is turned on.


  2. Check the photo viewer screen to determine which cartridge is incorrectly installed. Then do one of the following:


    • If printer shows the ink cartridge is expended, press the cp_button_6.gif Start button.


    • If the printer shows the cartridge is low on ink, press the Setup/Utilities button. Press the cp_button_41_er.gif or cp_button_42_er.gif button to select Press Start to change cartridges. Then press the cp_button_6.gif Start button.


  3. Press the cp_button_6.gif Start button again.


  4. Lift up the scanner, then open the cartridge cover.


alert_caution.gif Caution:
Never attempt to open the cartridge cover when the print head is moving. Wait until the cartridges have moved to the replacement position.

  • Press down all the ink cartridges until they click into place to make sure they are properly seated.


  • alert_note.gif Note:
    If a cartridge is properly seated already, you may not hear a click.

  • Close the ink cartridge cover and press it until it clicks into place.


  • Close the scanner.


  • im_339_er.gif

  • Press the cp_button_6.gif Start button. The Stylus CX charges ink for about one minute and displays Charging Ink on the photo viewer screen until charging is finished.


  • alert_caution.gif Caution:
    Never turn off the Stylus CX while the Charging Ink message is displayed or you'll waste ink.

  • Press the Setup/Utilities button to return to the previous mode, if necessary.

    SOURCE: 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.

    My epson is pouring ink when i print a photo


    Are you usng epson inks and they are seated correctly? refillable, refilled or cheap inks will sometimes leak badly.If you take the inks out of the holder, and there is NO '"puddle"(large amount) of ink there, it isn't bad ink, but it's probably the control board to the printhead. And this is Not really a user servicable area.Get an estimate at a reputable printer repair firm, but I can probably say right now to look for another printer, either Craigslist, ebay , epson refursished at epson website, Or lastly NEW

    Epson Stylus Photo R800 not printing certain color


    You may have blocked print head nozzles.
    Try the printer maintenance to clear the printer nozzles.
    After several deep cleaning attempts and there is no improvements in the print then a new print head is required.
    A new print head maybe expensive and it maybe more cost effective to purchase a new printer.

    Hi,

    Turn the printer off, take out the cartridges, turn the printer on, reinstall cartridges. Printer reads cartridges as new.

    Why this happens? I don't know if the rumors are true but check out this website and you'll find out.

    Hello, we're getting an error code of 990 on a GX5050n inkjet printer. The printer is fairly new with only a dozen or so printouts. Thanks.


    make sure printer is off. Then old down escape and online button at the same time. Continue to hold these two buttons down then turn on printer. Continue to hold those two buttons down (will take about 2 - 3 minutes). This should clear that message - worked for me!!!
