Question about Epson Stylus Photo 1290S InkJet Printer

Stylus Photo 1290

My printer keeps coming up with thr following error in the status monitor: "Installed Ink Cartridge Not Recognized." "Replace the black ink cartridge." I Have replaced the cartridge Several times with NEW GENUINE epson cartridges, it does not seem to be solving the problem. I Have also replaced the PRINTHEAD, PRINTHEAD CABLE it made no difference. I tested the MAIN BOARD on another machine and it works fine in that one. Has anyone else ever had this problem and maybe found a solution. Thanks.

Green and red lights on solidly, error message saying 'cartridge not recognized' even when it is a brand new Epson cartridge! Tried a reset but it doesn't make any difference


When you installed the cartridge, did you check for any protective tape on the cartridge at the bottom. This is a common missed item in the installation process. If there is tape on it, check instructions and remove it. The cartridge will not work otherwise.

Red lights flashing. I dont think the ink is out and i did try taking them out following the instructions and put the same ones back in but it still won't print and the light is still flashing, will it...


Printer wouldn't print if red light flashing. Check status monitor for detail? Are some ink not recognized? Do replacement procedure from status monitor on "How to...". Unplug all ink tank. Plug only one ink tank . See status monitor. Is ink tank recognized. repeat procedure, and add ink tank 1 by 1. How about status monitor then?

Joy:
Once more have the printer to perform the ink nozzles cleaning.
If you are using a ontinuos ink system, place it at the same level than that of the printer.
With the printer in the "replace carrtidge position", put it OFF and by hand, clean the place at which the cartridge rest.
Good luck and merry christmas

Epson stylus photo 1290 'bk ink cartridge not installed properly'


Ameter:
Remove the black ink cartridge.
Check the place where the new cartridge should go. Check for a round small piece like a bushing or a little piece of pipe, stuck at the ink entrance of the printing head. This is a piece from the old cartridge, that sometimes gets loose and remains in place,and when the new one is placed, it doesnot go down to the right place to make contact with the electric connectors in the printing head.
If nothing solves...reinstall the printer drivers.
Good luck and Merry Christmas
