I think the problem is in your windows, try to reinstall your windows. I suggest, don't reset the original chip, cause it's damage the chip.

Ho do i know which ink cartridge is low


Hi
the easiest way is to send a print job to printer. If any cartridge is empty, the printer should refuse to print and display an error message. This should indicate which cartridge is empty/not recognised - with a red X above the empty colour. Another way is to go to 'printer properties' then 'maintenance' page and click on 'Status monitor' button.
Hope this helps & good luck with it.

Change ink tank using "How to..." at Epson status monitor. Check contactor that connected to ink tank chip at carriage. Other possibility is CSIC board (behind the contactor)

My epson stylus s20 printer wont recognise genuine ink cartridge


If you are having issues printing, this could be caused from your printhead needing to be replaced.

How do I know WHICH of the ink cartridges is out?


I found this on the Epson Web Site. If you find this information helpful, pls rate me.
You can download the Reference Guide with pictures and all.

http://files.support.epson.com/htmldocs/r220__/r220__rf/index.htm

Windows
You can check the amount of ink remaining in the ink cartridges using EPSON Status Monitor 3 or the progress meter. Refer to the sections below for details.
EPSON Status Monitor 3 Access EPSON Status Monitor 3 in one of the following ways.
  • Double-click the printer-shaped shortcut icon on your Windows taskbar. To add a shortcut icon to the taskbar, see the section below.
    font26.gif See Monitoring Preferences
  • Open the printer software, click the Maintenance tab, then click the EPSON Status Monitor 3 button.
A graphic displays the remaining amount of ink.

If any of the ink cartridges installed in the printer is broken, incompatible with the printer model, or improperly installed, EPSON Status Monitor 3 will not display an accurate calculation for the amount of ink remaining in any of the ink cartridges. Be sure to replace or reinstall any ink cartridge indicated by EPSON Status Monitor 3.

Pls rate me. Thanks and Good Luck.....

Epson S20 inkjet printer does not recognise genuine Epson inks


This is usually a sign of the print head being done. Printer heads are usually more than the price of a new printer. Too bad about the inks though. Most places wil take them back even if they are opened. Solution is to buy a new printer. I have had much better luck with my Canon.
Cheers

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.

Epson S20 does not recognise cartridges


It should be returned to the seller for exchange under warranty.

I presume you have removed the tags on the cartridge and ensured they have chips on the cartridge case? If all that has been done then i would be making a warranty claim
