Question about Epson Stylus R265 InkJet Photo Printer

INK CAPACITY DISPLAY

I have just changed the ink cartridges for the first time on my new Epson R265. Initially there was a quick flash showing the replaced cartridges were full. Now all of the cartridges register only a quarter full even though it has had little use. I am using compatible cartridges from Choice Stationery and I have to say that I never had any problems with them on my previous printer.

    Thank you to jackboy and daverh.
    I tried to download ssclgcom but using google the only reference to it was found on an Italian web page which meant nothing to me.
    I also looked on the Choice Stationery website for ZAP-IT but to no avail.
    I have also tried re-installing the software and tried to find the STATUS MONITOR utility which according to Epson should be on the intallation disk.
    I think perhaps daverh is right - there is no solution!

    Thank you for that suggestion mukhtar. Unfortunately I do not have the original cartridges anymore but next time I change them I will try your suggestion.
    Thanks again.

Firstly do not regard the 'electronic' fudge as anything more than a 'screen toy' It has little relation to the actual state of your carts. Download ssclgcom The epson utility, installel the program and right click on the taskbar icon- here you will be able to find various utilities including cartridge re-set you also purchase a ZAP-IT resetter tool form Choice.

This seems to be a "feature" of this printer with compatible cartridges although I'm sure it wouldn't be possible to get Epson to admit it. I have seen the same thing on other R265s and I haven't found a solution a yet. As far as I know, it doesn't affect printing - as long as there's actually ink in the cartridges it will print, despite what the Epson Status Monitor says, but YMMV.

I have an Epson Stylus R265. It is telling me all


Did you use Epson Genuine Cartridges?

ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine Epson Cartridges. !!!!!!!!
That sounds like your problem.

In Purchasing Epson's CX 5400, CX4600, & CX7400 and more, I found out that Epson does not like Generic Printer Cartridges. I also Purchased a Brother. That also does not like Generic Print Cartridges. Color that should be Yellow, will turn out Green, Blue Brown, etc.

These printers have a CHIP that will detect if it is Generic or Genuine. When they see it’s Generic Cartridges, it will print lines thru the words, stripes across the picture and also do a mix match with the colors. It also will not let you print anything, if only one of the cartridges is empty.

I wanted to print only Black, and would not let me, because I did not have any ink in one of my cyan cartridges. Go figure.

That's what these Companies do., so they can keep selling the ink cartridges. Some Printers, are able to use Generic, and some are refillable. Some you can refill them up yourself and I heard, quite MESSY.

So I learned, thru trial and error, that you must use the ORIGINAL Genuine Cartridges for these PRINTERS. Some people say some models work fine compatible, but not mine.......


I had to replace the printer, but Epson, Lexmark & Brothers are always on sale. My Brother & Epson cost me $50.00 with Rebate. .

This is the only advice I can give you. If you find this helpful, pls rate me.

Thanks and Good Luck :0)

Epson r265 keeps printing purple pictures I have installed new cartridges and done a head clean several timesbut i just won't budge


You probably need to purge the yellow ink channel. Use the cleaner found in refill kits and gently force the cleaner through the channel where the yellow ink cartridge attaches.

After cleaning, you will need to "charge" that ink channel either by many cleanings or by forcing the yellow ink into the channel before installing the cartridge.

Hi, I have just changed the yellow cartridge on my R265 with proper epson ink cartridge and it is saying that it is incompatible. Can you help please?


Hi If you are using compatable inks try taking the ink cartridge out and put it back in again try this three or four times to see if it will accept it if not try a different cartridge you can sometimes get a duff one The earlier models have a different cartridge than the later models epson altered them and changed the chip

Ink tanks on my Epson R265


Did you refill them or buy refilled cartridges? Epsons all have a chip on the ink tank. once that chip registers a certain count it renders the cartridge dead. If it gets refilled it has to be reset, which 99% of the refill places don't do. It's also possible that the contacts on the carriage have worn down or been punctured. Also look in the back of the carrier and make sure you don't see any small holes in the white ribbon cable.
