My TX 100 will not print. I have replaced black cartridge thinking it would change things but no. The green button shows and the red one shows (the red one shouldn't) and when I press 'print' it...

Epson ink cartridges have memory chips. If you refill a cartridge it will still show as empty until the memory chip has been reset. The printer will not normally print if it thinks the ink is empty. This is to protect the printer as the ink is energized as it is used.
Refill ink sellers on line usually have the Chip Reset tool available to buy (SK168-II).

Full of ink won't print

In the properties of the printer in Windows you will have a tab called maintenance. There you can select "cleaning" and "deep cleaning". You will want to run through those cycles several times and if the ink is still not coming through so you can print, you should let the full ink cartridge sit for about 20 minutes after that cleaning and then try again. With refilled ink cartridges this can be a game of patience. The alternative is to buy a new ink cartridge, but everyone knows those are costly. If the printer won't even "try" to print because the ink is low, press the "color" button to proceed after the alert.

With new cartridge indicates low ink level,

The ink level gauge may not work properly with refilled cartridges. Because of this, you might get low ink message after refilling. To install the refilled cartridge you might need to override the ink level gauge. Overriding the ink level gauge disables the printer’s ink level tracking feature, but allows you to use refilled cartridges. To override the ink level gauge, please check your printer reference guide. After disabling the ink level tracking feature you should check the ink level visually and as soon as the ink level gets low you need to refill the cartridge. You do not want to try to print with an empty cartridge. Trying to print with an empty cartridge may damage your print-heads.

otherwise you will have to replace the cartridge .

Dell 926 injection refill kit didnt work

The ink your purchased is likely a cheap watered down version of what your printer is meant to take. You may notice that the ink smears when you rub the page directly after printing. Why you chose to use the blue and red ink to make black blows my mind. These refill kits are insanely cheap and buying the black could not have been much more. Not using black ink in the black cartridge would explain why your print is faded. Also, there is no way to reset the ink levels on this type of cartridge. As long as the printer still prints, just ignore the ink level indicator and print until the ink runs dry. I recommend Cartridge World for ink refills because they use high quality ink to manufacturer specified volumes while still saving you money.

Restart after replace ink cartridge

my CX4800 has done the same thing. I ran the utilities dozens of times, replaced every cartridge and it feeds papers the print head moves like it's printing but nothing is imaged on the paper.
Searching the web is my last chance to fix it before i toss this 18 month old printer and never buy an epson again.

Epson stylus cx4800 won't print

Hi, reason we sell epson printers are they are the cheapest to run, but they do get alot of problems with the print heads, if you change from using refill ink kits to compatible ink cartridges you would not have to reset the chip each time, otherwise you will have to change to a more expensive to run printer like the HP, or Lexmark, lexmark is the most expensive for cartridges but it has the print heads built into the cartridge and not the printer itsself, epson only have the chip on the cartridge.
You can use the refill kits on most HP & Lexmark without having to reset the cartridge all you need to do is refill it.
but for every 3 for example you may have to buy a new cartridge which will be more expensive, ie if you get lines through your print, as the print head will probably get blocked on cartrdige.

Happy New Year
