Silly question first, have you taken the film of the cartridge connectors?
if not then do.
if you have removed then my hp printer has done this and as far as i am aware it is due to the connections on the part that holds the ink cartridges. they wear down the same as on the cartridge.
this makes the machine not able to see the cartridge.

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.

I have just replaced the black ink on my epson sx210 and it is not recognising it.The other cartridges are empty. Could this be the problem?


Taken fro the epson site where they describe how to print in black only


notes.gif Note:

You will not be able to obtain black ink only printing if any cartridges have run out. This is to ensure that air is not sucked into the print head (instead of the ink that prior to the cartridge running out was available) therefore potentially damaging the printer.


In order to function, the printer will require black and colour ink cartridges to be inserted with a certain amount of ink in each cartridge.

I put new ink in it, now it won't print, it is


If you only filled the cartridges with ink they will not work.

The chip on the cartridges needs resetting.
To do that you would have to buy an Epson cartridge chip resetter..

Trouble with my epson stylus c45 printer. PLEASE HELP!?


this is usually caused by clogged print heads, unfortunately epson is still one of few brands that still manufactures most of their printers with the heads built into the machine and thus upon print head clogging the printer must be taken in to be serviced or buy a new printer that does not have the print heads built in but rather built into the ink cartridges. hope this helps.

Cannot put in my black ink into my epson stylus dx 6050


You can download the manual from here, which gives a full explanation on changing ink cartridges:

http://esupport.epson-europe.com/FileDetails.aspx?lng=en-GB&data=dkmEK02SU002FerSswuKrCsBh8QsoyzJb18U&id=8383

You can do it manually by turning on the printer, then, as soon as the print head starts to move, pull out the power cord from the printer, or switch off at the mains. The print head will now be free to move (carefully) by hand to the cartridge change position. Replace the cartridges and turn the printer back on. Carry out a cleaning cycle.

If the cartridges have been out for a while, you will no doubt have dried ink blocking the nozzles. Several cleaning cycles may be needed, or other methods, to clear the print nozzles. Report back if this is the case.

Remember in future not to remove a cartridge until you are ready to replace it.

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.

Don't try to fix it. Put the machine back in the box and return it Epson for a new one. Do it before the machine is 28 days old or they will give you a graded machine.

The error can be caused by the cartridges themselves but best to get the whole lot exchanged.
