Just had this happen to me. Turned it off, turned it back on... nothing. In/out with the cartridge several times and when I blew on the contacts of the printer (where the little microchio on the cartridge touches) it finally worked. Did the blowing on the contacts help? Maybe, but more likely is that the it was just repeatedly trying to d oit before the machine figured it out.

I found this on fixya per dgsturt
It looks like you've managed to get ink all over the shop by using the self clean option. That't mainly to clear bocked print heads and tends to squirt a load of ink through.
That ink has to go somewhere, it looks like you may have some on your rollers.
First, I'd have a look through the printer menu see if there's a roller cleaning option, give that a go.
Second, I'm not sure but worth a try, try printing a document that has wording all down the page but use an empty cartridge. If your printer will do this you’re effectively using a sheet of paper as a mop to clean the rollers.
Third, probably the most difficult, get some Isoproprial Alcohol from the chemist and try and clean the rollers and print bed yourself with a lint free cloth and cotton buds, what ever works.
If you don't like the idea of Isoproprial Alcohol, it is highly infamable, try with a damp cloth first, but it will take longer to dry off.
OR YOU CAN TRY THIS:
The next step would be to disassemble the Epson, and clean the Pads/Heads. Click on link below.:
I located a page on http://www.fixyourownprinter.com forum, which had plenty of details about similar issues.

Here is a quote from the Epson website.
"These products were developed and released at a time when large capacity cards such as 2GB or 4GB SD cards were not commercially available or widely available. Therefore the printer and its memory card reader do not recognise larger capacity memory cards."
So you're stuck with it I'm afraid.

Try this: First check which cartridge(s) are not being recognized. In my case where I replaced all three color cartridges, two were recognized right away but one was not. You find out by sending a print request to the printer and looking at the ink cartridge levels diagram in the dialog window. In my case two of three were fine but one had a red X on it. So I removed it and cleaned the contacts with alcohol then rocked it in the slot after pressing it in. It was recognized and the charging process began as normal.
