Question about Epson Office Equipment & Supplies
I have had problems with my Epson SX415 for a while, firstly with it not recognising non epson cartridges despite them working for a while in the printer. Today i have just been out and purchased a genuine set of cartridges, installed them, ran a nozzle check and cleaned print heads because it wasn't printing any ink on the paper. Now it says my cyan and magenta cartridges are empty and need replacing. How can they be empty already? I have took the cartridges out, cleaned the nozzle, there is ink in each cartridge still. Have turned off the display using my laptop. However, it is still asking me to change the cartridge. Not sure what else to do.
1. New original ink tank will dried for several times of head cleaning procedure.
. ....ran a nozzle check and cleaned print heads because it wasn't printing any ink on the paper.... ???
Nothing at all? If yes, problem is in the printer main board. Lost electricity to the head.

Check for the tape that wraps all the way around the cartridge bottom it usually has a red line on one end like a tab DONOT REMOVE THE ONE THAT LOOKS LIKE WIRES ON IT.... is it still there if so remove it.............MAKE SURE THE CARTRIDGE IS SEATED PROPERLY IT DOESNT TAKE ALOT OF STRENGTH TO INSTALL.....

In desperation tried another new cartridge and it worked perfectly first time: I suspect the first was faulty so off to retailer for refund ASAP. At 30+GBP they dont come cheap!

Testimonial: "Good solution: but are you sure you replaced the right cartridge first time around? "
woo really this is crazy. does the paper it prints on seem soaked in ink. i mean is it wet and all blurry and smudgy as if its using a tone of ink on the paper, have you tried lowering the settings, really there is no excuse for it using this much ink,. if i was you i would strait away bring it back to the shop you got it from with the recipts for all the ink and ask for another printer strait away and the money for the ink. what yeah think of that for an idea. really there is problem with printer its not sealing the cartage when not in use or its shooting to much ink at once. i think the main problem is its not sealing the cartage when not been used and its leaking the ink this is why u must clean each time because the inks drinking on the dripping cartgaes. hope this helps in some way.

ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine Epson Cartridges. !!!!!!!! How you were able to use generic is amazing. I was not able to do that!
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.
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. Don’t waste too much ink in cleaning it.
TRYING PURCHASING GENUINE, and see what happens? This is the only advice I can give you. If you find this helpful, pls rate me.
Thanks and Good Luck :0)
