    I have the same problem. My printer was printing just fine, with one ink low. When the light lit up to replace that cartridge, I did, as I have many many times, and the printer would not recognize a full cartridge. I even tried a different (new) cartridge. I also went through the troubleshooting on the Epson website and called a rep from Epson. He said I need to have it repaired, but I feel there might be a simple solution.

    After market ink causes the problem. If you install there is choice continue anyway , if you accidently miss that the warning wont let you print.

    FIX: remove cartridge and reinstall, this will get back to dialog you want this time choose continue anyway.

    8/12/08 Used recommended ink for Epson 2200.. Followed Epson manufacter's instructions. Snapped in yellow replacement without problem. Red X will not go away - message does not recognize new cartridge has been installed. Reinstalled - same problem.

    How long have you been working on a new solution? It appears a number of others have same problem.

    yes, my printer said that the light black cartridge is out of ink. i purchased a new one but that the x symbol kept showing that the cartridge was out of ink. So I exchanged that cartridge as i thought it was a problem with the cartridge . but it was not as the x symbol is still there. i purchased a chip resetter online, hoping this would solve the problem but it does not! it is still showing no ink and will not let me print.

    same problem. I think epson should buy me the cchip resetter.

  • kate51 Oct 12, 2008

    Have ordered a universal chip resetter, hope I have good luck. I had three cartridges that wouldn't work, fourth one ok. I have used a lot of expired Epson factory-packed ink, this is my first problem with the new ink not charging or being recognized, but since they were in factory packaging it had to be the chip (have never used refilled or compatible ink).

    Glad I'm not alone....also 2200's are getting on in age, expect more problems. I have reset waste counter and cleaned the waste compartment to a degree. Now looking for an extenal waste ink receptacle. Anyone tried that?

    Thanks, kate51

I had the same problem. I'm not sure but I think I replaced the cartridges when the printer was on because I turned the printer off and removed one of the cartridges. When I turned the printer back on it recognized that cartridge but not the others. I turned the printer off again, rmoved all cartiridges and put them back in when the printer was still off. When I turned the printer on again I had no problems. So...try turning off the printer, rmove all cartridges, then put them back in and restart printer. Hope this works for you .

Try this. it worked for me. turn off printer. remove the cartridges. clean the circuit, it's the tape that's directly in contact the cartridge. use a cotton buds with alcohol. clean the circuit of the new cartridge, too. let dry. put back cartridges and turn power on. hope this helps.

I had the same problem! I replaced two cartidges at once and one of the lights continued to stay red,The red light stayed on and therefore the printer would not print !!!!!! I decided to fool the printer-----I took the cartridge out and inserted into my chip resetter and then back into the printer--bingo worked like a charm.....I noticed the same type of problem when I changed ink cartidges befor when I was using different types of ink.
I think that the printer doesnot always know that there is still ink in the cartridge that has been removed and then reinserted into the printer again even if its a new one. Using the chip resetter reprograms the cartridge. Make sure the cartridges are not expired. The chip resetter cost about nine dallars--buy one on line. good luck-----Glenn

SOURCE: printer won't recognize the new ink cartridges.

Hi,

Unfortunately there's not a lot left while you wait for the delivery... If the printer is refusing to recognise your cartridge it's most likely that the chip is incompatible but here's a couple of possible solutions while you wait.

  1. Remove the problem cartridge, clean the chip on this cartridge and check for any overly excessive plastic securing the chip in place. Sometimes the plastic can push the contacts away or redirect them so careful shaving of any excess material may help.

  2. Check the slot the cartridge goes into for any damage to the contact wires. These are very thin and VERY delicate wires in the front of the printhead carriage. If they are damaged or soiled you need to consider a warranty replacement or accept you could break things if you try to fix them yourself. Hopefully this isn't the problem
Beyond that there's really not a lot else left to try..

Best of luck.

Try wiping the copper contacts on the new cartridge with a dustfree cloth dampened with some alcohol. Dry thoroughly before reinstalling.

SOURCE: printer will not recognize a new full cartridge of ink

Are you sure, that light is for empty cartridges. I'm not exactly sure, but i think that this printers have ink absorber. I had exact problem, but with Xerox. Try to connect it to computer and look for message on printers software. But first clean contacts on the heads and printer with eraser.

SOURCE: won`t recognize new ink cartridges

Hi there
There are only a few steps you need to do to reset a Brother printer ink cartridge and once you do it, you will be up and printing in no time. There are actually two things that a Brother printer uses to detect ink and you can manipulate one or the other.
Instructions
Things You'll Need: · Black electrical tape, masking tape or duct tape
1. Step 1
Identify the printer If your printer uses memory, you can tell which printer you have by looking at where the cartridge goes in, if you see two "eyes" and a part of the cartridge goes in between them, follow Step 3. Otherwise, continue with Step 2.
2. Step 2
Clear the memory by taking the cartridge out and unplugging the unit for 30 seconds. Then, plug it back in and put back in the cartridge. You may need to do this five times, as the memory holds the last five cartridges.
3. Step 3
If the Brother printer has "eyes" where the cartridge goes, you will need to block in between them with a piece of tape so that it thinks the cartridge is always full. Simply put a piece of tape on the piece of the cartridge that goes in between the eyes to block the path of the infrared beam

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

SOURCE: Printer won't recognize new ink cartridges

Follow this simple instructions:
Remove all the cartridges, clean the contact points on the cartridges and on the printer using soft brush/cotton dipped in alcohol/acetone/spirit. While they are drying, reset your printer; Turn it off > Disconnect usb cable, power cord, inthernet cable; >remove the papers from the tray >open the back panel door (the rear door where you clear paper jam). Also turn of the main switch which the dc adapter plugged in. After keeping it Off for about 5 minutes, turn on again using only the power cord, and again leave it on for few minutes > turn it off > connect all the cables > again turn it On and keep pressing the power button while it boots up. Now you can install the cartridges.

Good luck.

Recognize ink cartridges


Are the cartridges the same as recommended by OEM? If not, the printer will not recognize it.
Switch off, check if printer still your default. Do a test. If no luck, go to tools and clean and align cartridges. GL

How can I make printer recognize refilled cartridge on lexmark prevail pro 705


Refilled cartridges will not reset the ink levels. The printer will still recognize it as empty.

Please be advised that refilled/remanufactured cartridges could damage your printhead and will not be covered under warranty.

Won't Print Color Ink


INK PROBLEM
Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages,then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer thanreplace the print head.

Hp office jet 5610 wont print colors correctly


Some printer software that detect ink levels won't recognize a cartridge that's been refilled. They treat the cartridge as empty although you've filled them with ink. You can try removing the HP software that pertains to the printing functions only (not the scanner abilities). You can also do a Power reset. Remove the printer cartridges, turn off the power, remove both the Power cord and USB cord (if applicable) for 10 minutes. After reconnecting the USB and power cords, install the cartridges as you normally would. The printer should treat them as new.

I have an hp psc 1215 all-in-one. My black cartridge won't print. It recognises if I swap it out for a new one, and goes through all the motions. It registers the correct ink levels. The cradle...


The problem is not with the ink-cartridges. You've proved that, by swapping BLACK cartridges.

The problem is that the ink-jets that spray the BLACK ink onto the paper are clogged.
Thus, no BLACK ink reaches the paper.

Open the HP Printing Assistant, and open Utilities, and run a few "print-head-cleaning" cycles, to try to unclog the print-head.

My c543dn insists that the cyan cartrige is missing but its not- any help here ?


These would be my recommendations, based on problems I've had with a similar printer:

1) Open the printer and pull the cyan cartridge back out.

2) Check the bottom of the cartridge to make sure there aren't any scraps of plastic or other material that might be preventing the printer from recognizing it.

3) Check inside the ink well (where the cartridge goes) to make sure nothing's stuck down in there that might be preventing the connection. Be careful and use a flashlight so that you don't accidentally break anything else (I've done that before).

4) If all of that is clear, re-insert the ink cartridge and push down (not too hard, but firmly) until it clicks into place.

5) If none of that works, the leads on the cartridge might have been damaged, or it might just be defective. You'll probably need a replacement toner cartridge at that point.

Hope that helps!

Cannot recognize ink cartridge


I have about 6 canon printers with a 3in 1 using PG40 and CL41. I have never encountered the problem you have. I have looked into some other sites and noticed a number if CLI-8 cartridges being replaced by Canon. I think there are only 2 probable problem areas, he cartridge or the software you are using. I suggest you call up Canon and complain about this problem. Seems like you got the printer 6 months or so ago. You should able to get to do something like replace the printer or cartridges. I'm assuming that you don't refill or have your cartridges refilled so the contact points should not be messy w/ ink. You can try cleaning the contact points on the cartridges and printer. But I'd call Canon and explain to them the situation and see if they can solve your problem. Solve I'm implying is to replace your cartridges or printer. Let me know if this helps.
