I am not happy to pay Epson's price for ink. thanks to anyone who can help

    I had the same problem with my Epson DX8450 when I switched from Epson ink to Jet-Tec but ignored the window and it worked perfectlly for about 9 months and then the same windows started coming up. I got onto Epson online chat who told me to replace with Epson cartridges but I had none as they were far too expensive. Took it to the Epson service centre locally and they put Epson inks in and it started charging but was't printing much. They told me the inkhead was probably blocked. As it was JUST in guarantee they sent mine away and I got a reconditioned one back, as new and working. I since use Epson cartridges as they told they are thicker ink and compatible ones are runnier and clog the head faster (or is that a way of getting you to buy their inks at such ridiculous prices!). I am loath to use Jet-Tec at the moment but have to admit the Epson ink is far better quality and does not dry out if the printer is not used for a while. Hope that helps.

Replace all ink cartridges and the printer will work again. The level indicators are just indicators and are not precise.

The printer won't recognise the printer cartridges. I tried replacing older cartridges with new ones and even this doesn't work. They are genuine epson cartridges and the same ones I have always bought.


Check chip connnector at ink tank and at head carriage. It's may be dirty. Check status monitor? what ink tank not recognized. Press ink light (1-4 times) depends on number ink tank not recognized, press 1 time again, carriage will move co replacement position, unplug and plug again all ink tank, press ink light 1 more.
