As i was removing light magenta, the little connector pins that actually read the chip on the ink cart have some how got ca\ught and pinged out now cant use the printer as it cant read chip. have i done some serious damage or can i some how trick it back into life.any help id be grateful for cheers
I know how to fix this. This part is identical in many, many Epson models and I have lots this part. I call it the "pinset" and what it does is make contact to the chip on one side, and on a small board on the other to make the contact. The thing is, that you have to very carefully remove and insert this part and I have devised an excellent method of doing this during my several years of working with Epson printers, without taking the cartridge reciever apart as an authorized Epson tech would do. In fact, this happened recently to my Photo black slot and I fixed it in 10 minutes. It happens when someone tries to put a cartridge in with no chip on it. Putting it in is fine, but the spring loaded contacts get caught in the void where the chip is supposed to be and when you pull the cartridge out, it bends the hell out of the pinset. They are not repairable. I would not mind helping both of you... but I need something too. I have a 9600 PHOTO DYE model (T545* carts) and I either need a set of cartridges or a set of chips that I can reset. Empty, used, I don't care as long as the chip is intact and can be reset. You see, I have several bags of ink from a different model that I can change out inside the cartridges, but I don't have the right chips! Can you help me? I could send you as many pinsets as you need. I can definitely help you but I would rather arrange a meeting on the phone to walk you through it (both of you) since its a bit tricky without taking the printer apart.

Epson printers don't actually measure the amount of ink in the cart, but instead estimate the ink use by counting the number of drops used for printing and cleaning.
If the head has been clogged, then less ink gets used, and when the printer thinks the cart is empty there will be ink left in it.
You can get a chip resetter that can let you use the little bit of ink that's still in the cart.
Xerox guarantees their supplies to be free from defects as long as their is a life percentage left and will replace it for free.
Take it back to the store you purchased it from and ask for a replacement, or have them request a replacement for you.
If the magenta fails (within 100 pages) after you replace the Image Unit, then your toner dispense mechanism is failing for the magenta toner, and either a dispense motor will need replaced, or the toner auger will need to be unclogged or replaced.
one of the first signs of a faulty power supply is a washed out display,
also you may hear a slight buzzing noise,
you may need to replace the ISS Pwb ( part of the tubes ) not order able separately,
it has been known that the connector block ( for ink Cart) does fail, I would try swapping it with another colours and see if the fault follws the connector block,
it may just be a bad chip on the ink cart.
you do get this with a lot of canon printers its nor-manly the black, make shore you have the prober canon cart because some of the copy,s don't match the pin,s on the printer also clean the pin,s on the printer, that the cart fit,s back to with a cue tip but be care full not to hard as this my damage the pin,s which my be the cause. I would swap any way to a chip epson the ink,s cheaper
dont you hate that when that happend. this is why i do not use refilled carts. The issue here is the ink system has failed because of the refilled cart. the chip that reads the cartridge (printhead) is bad and needs to be replaced. I got a link on a tip for you about refilled stuff I hope you do take it to heart.
Read the artical in there you be so glad you did. Refilled inks ruin printheads!!! and this is what happend to your printer. please read and please do rate the tip and leave feedback for this free help today.
did you replace with brother carts, are you sure machine is refering to mag and yellew being mt, not the other ones, power off, remove all carts, power on , reinsert carts one at a time answer machine when prompted. these cartridges are deemed empty even when they look like they have a little ink left. Try putting in 4 new brother inks
Unplug machinepowercord. Open printer and take all carts out. Plug in power. Machine demands carts. Put new one in: Replace with original ink carts!. When asked push 1 (yes New cart).
If you have used thirdparty carts, there could be a prob due to construticon or ink quality.
In case there is no bk after 3x cleaning cycles anymore, the head is clogged: This happens because the filter in front of the nozzels is clogged by pigmented ink.
DO USE ONLY DYE INK for all types of brother inkjet machines!!!
