Question about Epson Stylus Multifunction Inkjet Printer/ Copier/ Scanner
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.
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

I think your printer model don't support compatible cartridges.
Buy original cartridges
