Question about Epson Stylus 2200 InkJet Photo Printer
I've replaced cartridge that printer thinks is out of ink. Still won't recognize. won't run anything.
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

FIX: remove cartridge and reinstall, this will get back to dialog you want this time choose continue anyway.
This will and has worked for my R200 many times.....thank good for google or I would have been lost!

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.
Best of luck.

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

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.

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.
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.

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.
Thanks for using FixYa.
