Question about Printers & Copiers
I bought MANY ink cartridges to replace the original "Very expensive" Epson ink cartridges for my printer and now the printer states that it doesn`t recognize the cartridges and to re`install them. I have tried this 20 times and it is still saying the same thing. The printer will not work until I fix this problem. :( ???????????????????
I had the same problem, was tired of Spending $100 / refill - so I tried a set of Generics that were "Guaranteed" to work - well - they didn't. Apparently Epson changes the programming on the ROM on the actual ink cartridge - and if you buy an older generic cartridge it will not work if you have a newer printer - as the ROM coding is incorrect.
I do however, have a solution - that I found works. Continuous Ink Systems. I went to Super Jet USA (www.superjetusa.com) - and purchased their continuous ink system. I think it was 60 bux and it comes with 100ml of ink in each color + 18 ml in each continuous cartridge (so 118ml in total for each color) (Regular cartridges only have 18 ml). So the equivelant of just over 6 refills... Normally - 6 sets of Epson (rip off super high price make someone rich) cartridges would cost me roughly $720.00 with taxes and what not.
This system Cost me 60 bux + shipping.
Now I am not a mathamatician, a numerologist, or anyone who things long division is fun (thats just sick) - but I dont think it takes a genius to see this is one TERRIFIC deal.
And yes - The system works PERFECTLY in my Epson R380 Printer - first try - no fuss - no muss - Extremely happy I tried this solution
NOTE: I do not work for, or am in any association with Superjetusa - I just think when you find a company that is good to deal with, delivers what they promise, and gives you a good price - then you should tell the world.

Actually, I had the exact same situation, I went to SuperJet USA per cueball1967's suggestion by purchasing their cartridge. Well, let me just put it this way, I will NEVER go back to them, EVER again. Not only did their ink have leaked and spilled all over the inner boxes when they've arrived, when I asked for a new toner replacement due to the spill before arrival, their customer service representative had refused to my request without given me further explanation and just hung me up, twice, before I was explaning to her about the situation. OK, fine, I'll get over it and start use the rest of the cartridges. Guess what happen next? It is unrecognizable by my printer, and the second cartridges LEAKED inside my brand new Epson printer. So given a logical guess, the first leaked printer was not to blame on the UPS, but SuperJet USA.
SUCKED customer service
Bad cartridge quality
UNSTABLE return & refund policies
OVERALL: NEGATIVE exprience with Super Jet USA.

Hi im jules_09,apparently it will not work because every copier
orprinter has its own designated ink cartridges.or even the ink will
not work on it too.it goes to all copiers and printers that do not use
a imitation of toner or ink or youll have problem with the machine if
you want it to work just transfer the new ink into the old cartridge,re
use only the cartridge but remember that compatile ink and toner can
ruin the operation or even cause big problem to the machine
