Question about Epson Stylus CX4200 All-In-One InkJet Printer
In March of 2007 Epson started putting a different chip in some of their cartridges so that refill companies couldn't refill them. My printer is a CX8400 just purchased last Oct but manufactured Dec of 2007. The date they changed the cartridges was March of 2007. You must then buy cartridges Original OEM or find a company that has cartridges for before that date or after depending on when your printer was made. Look at the bottom of the printer for little clock dials and you can determine the date of manufacture. On mine the first number was the year and the second the month. Check ink companies online to see if this applies to your printer. Some ink companies don't mention this or just send you the wrong ones.The older cartridges will not work in the newer models.
