Ink cartridges not working in epson sx100 all in one printer

Recently my black ink ran out and as the inks are so expensive I went to my local computer shop who sell cheaper compatible versions - these are inkrite E714 etc. They advised me that on the first change I had to change all four inks at the same time. I have done this but the printer will not work , it wont print anything and it shows the cartridges as all being empty on the screen . I dont know what to do , can anyone help ? I start a course next week so need my printer.

    Ive put new cartidges into my sx100 from a multipack from the reputable Wilkinsons, they are supposed to be compatible if the packaging were to be believed. The first three of the four have worked fine for about a week however i have just put the last one in to replace yellow and the print warning is reading all cartridges as being empty. Ive followed all instructions, taken them out and put them back, switched the printer off and on, nothing is working and i have important work to print. AAAAARRRRRR! I need help !

    I have recently purchased a Black TO891 Epson Ink Cartridge for my Epsom SX100 all in one printer. Having installed it I am getting a message that the black cartridge is empty. I have tried reinstalling it following all instructions but to no avail. Can anyone help please. The printer is only 1 month old and this is the first time I have had to replace a cartridge.

    I have had exactly the same problem, the original cartridge ran out after onl;y 9 pages I then fitted a compatible cartridge and was told it was not compatible, I was then informed via Epson installation program that magenta cartridge was now empty too, which is absolute nonsense. I am not stupid, I was a computer dealer for 15 years and sold 1000's of printers. I also feel that the "manual" that came with the SX100 was appalling the only one I can remember being worse was the Juki 6100 back in the early 80's

Hi.make sure there is no tape or dirt on cartridge chip contacts.if still no joy trying iserting one cartridge at a time then installing.say insert black then will say others carts missing red blue yellow.keep going till they are installed.sometimes helps.make sure the carts have lastest chips installed version 5 or higher if compatable cart.should not be a problem if bought from epson.eg t711 etc will fit but must be new carts with new chip otherwise may not accept.i belive the sx100 has something like t811 or something.this may be the new chip.otherwise may just be a faulty chip on the cart.you can get refillable carts or ciss system on ebay you put in your own ink.they are brillant.cart chips reset when low ink.hope this may help.

You can use compatibles in the printer i have one, you have to reset the chips, you can use a chip resetter or do it manually, replace the cartridge if it doesn't recognise itturn off the pc, unplug from the mains for 2 minutes and then reinstall. I use this methid with all of mine, only thing i've not figures out is how to stop all of my compatibles ceasing when one cartridge runs out. The min one cartridge runs out they all become unrecognised, that annoys the hell outta me as most of them are at least half full.

Make sure that you have removed the tape on each cartridge.
make sure the cartridges are for your model printer as they are not all the same.
The cartridges could be bad since they are remanufactured, you can go back to the place you bought them and see if they will replace the cartridges for you or you can look online for a cheaper price like www.meritline.com

Is there an inexpensive manual avail for TDC Vivid Mainliner 300 slide proj.?


I see manuals on eBay for around $14 but nothing cheap or free. It's unfortunately one of those that is just rare enough that nobody wants to cut anything lose. Sorry... You might try a Google search if you are having a specific problem - sometimes you can find a support or community forum that has a thread about the issue.

Good luck

My fax wont work in my ricoh aficio 1515 mf??


Using the 1515 as a fax machine is a pretty simple procedure if everything works right. All you have to do is hook a working phone line up to the phone jack on the back of the copier (the one labeled LINE, not TEL).

Why won't the fax work? If it is giving you an error message, what is the message?

If you are not getting a dial tone when faxing, unplug the fax from the phone line and plug a working phone in, and see if the phone gets a dial tone. If it doesn't, there is a problem with your phone line.

You can also try plugging the fax machine into another phone line. If the fax works on that line, then there may be a problem with the first line.

Are you having problems sending faxes or receiving them, or both?
