Suggest a logic reset by pulling the plug out of the wall. Shutting off the power at the printer DOES NOT reset the logic.

After 5 minutes re-connect plug to power and power up printer as normal.

If the above does not work, try again, but pull ALL cartridges out. Clean the copper pad of any residual ink. Re-install cartridges after printer power up.

Epson workforce 520 won't recognise ink cartidges


When replacing ink on the Epson Workforce 520, Ensure the cartridges have the correct/same number of gold contacts. Ive seen them with 7 and 9 gold square contacts and they were otherwise identical, and the ones with 9 contacts threw an "cartridge not recognized" error on the printer's dispay.

Hi, I have an epson stylus cx6600 , I replaced the black ink and the pages printed afterwards were full of lines, I cleaned the nozzles and cleaned the heads twice. I then took out the black ink cartridge...


Did you put a new cartrige the first time, or just put ink in the old one? Ink cartriges dry out. If you let them sit for extended periods of time, you don't save ink, you let them dry out. You can try to bag and wrap them if you are not going to use for awhile and see if they keep longer...but usually you just have to get a new one. I've heard you can put tape over the end of it to keep it longer...don't know from experience though. New carts will usually do the trick though.

I bought ink cartriges from staples, put them in but it says , cannot recognise them?


Hello, In Purchasing Epson's CX 5400, CX4600, & CX7400 and more, I found out that Epson does not like Generic Printer Cartridges. That sounds like your problem. Also in Purchasing the Brother's . Color that should be Yellow, will turn out Green, etc. All Generic Cartridges, will print lines thru the words, and also do a mix match with the colors. That's what the Companies do., so they can keep selling the ink cartridges. Some Printers, are able to use Generic, but you have to fill them up yourself and I heard, quite MESSY.

So I learned, thru trial and error, that you must use the ORIGINAL Genuine Cartridges for the PRINTERS.

Since you do not mention what type of ink cartridges you purchases, this is the only advice I can give you. If you find this helpful, pls rate me.

Thanks and Good Luck :0)

The printer do not recognize the new replacement cartrige


I have many epson printer, some more than 5 years old. It's ok. some have printed more than 50.000pages, it's ok.
If Ink cartridge Unrecognizable, there are two posibilities : Chip Error at ink tank, or printer error. For chip error, try to plug the ink tank to another printer (same type). If the ink tank recognized by other printer, so the problem is printer.
So ;
1. Check chip conector at head carriage.
2. Check the wiring of the head, and chip.
If two point above is ok, the last action is check the power supply and board. It may be epprom is damage.

Ink cartriges not being recognized by printer


It is not uncommon for an Epson printer to fail to recognise Epson cartridges. It is either due to failing to go through the proper cartridge replacement cycle properly, or more seriously, due to a communication problem between the cartridge and the main board. To fix the first, simply go through the cartridge replacement cycle again (see your manual how to do this before the cartridges are empty). Simply take your new cartridges out when told to, and put them back in again when told to insert the "new" cartridges. If it's the second problem you need specialist help, or simply sell your printer on e-bay for what you can get.
