Epson printer not recognizing cartridge
I discovered some time ago that Epson printers can be a bit "touchy." Somewhere on the net and I can't find it right now, there's a British bloke who first shared his solution, and I continue to use it today: Remove the cartridge in question. Then turn off your printer and go have a cup of tea (or coffee or whatever...). It's best if you can leave it overnight even. Then next day, turn it on, replace the cartridge and try to print your page again....
As an ebayer who uses a LOT of printer ink, I also have discovered that THE CHEAPEST way to operate an all-in-one printer is to purchase a refill kit and refill one's own cartridges. Then you are surprised and AMAZED at how long your printer will keep printing and printing and printing. Yes, I'm talking about the needles and syringes. I used to think they were too messy. But if your budget is tight, a little messy one day in about 2 or 3 months doesn't seem too bad. I refill all my cartridges at a sink which can be cleaned up afterwards (NOT the kitchen). I have two sets of cartridges for each color, and voila! I bless my printer every day for how long it keeps printing! How cheaply it operates. One must disable the ink monitor, but even then, there is the occasional day when it just decides not to recognize one cartridge or another... I'm about to get all fidgety myself when I recall the British solution, and I shut it off and go have a cup of tea!
People who think they MUST purchase only Epson cartridges, well, they must have a lot of money!
My Epson NX3300 All-in-One is a real jewel! It has never worked better!
