Don't try to fix it. Put the machine back in the box and return it Epson for a new one. Do it before the machine is 28 days old or they will give you a graded machine.

The error can be caused by the cartridges themselves but best to get the whole lot exchanged.

The black ink cannot be read by the printer


It is common for non-genuine cartridges to be refused by Epson copiers when they get a bit low on ink. Other times the generic cartridges are fine, it is a bit of a lottery.

Before deciding on any other causes, try a new genuine Epson ink replacement, as a diagnostic method (I have no connection with Epson BTW)

Epson CX3900 says all cartridges empty but not true


Did you use Epson Genuine Cartridges?

ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine Epson Cartridges. !!!!!!!!

Also go thru the utility to change cartridges. This will make the chip know that you have all new cartridges and will move the ink station in place.

In Purchasing Epson's CX 5400, CX4600, & CX7400 and more, I found out that Epson does not like Generic Printer Cartridges. I also Purchased a Brother. That also does not like Generic Print Cartridges. Color that should be Yellow, will turn out Green, Blue Brown, etc.

These printers have a CHIP that will detect if it is Generic or Genuine. When they see it’s Generic Cartridges, it will print lines thru the words, stripes across the picture and also do a mix match with the colors. It also will not let you print anything, if only one of the cartridges is empty.

I wanted to print only Black, and would not let me, because I did not have any ink in one of my cyan cartridges. Go figure.

That's what these Companies do., so they can keep selling the ink cartridges. Some Printers, are able to use Generic, and some are refillable. Some you can refill them up yourself and I heard, quite MESSY.

So I learned, thru trial and error, that you must use the ORIGINAL Genuine Cartridges for these PRINTERS. Some people say some models work fine compatible, but not mine.......


I had to replace the printer, but Epson, Lexmark & Brothers are always on sale. My Brother & Epson cost me $50.00 with Rebate. .

This is the only advice I can give you. If you find this helpful, pls rate me.

Thanks and Good Luck :0)

just try to remove and re-insert the cartridge in a way that you get a click sound in the printer. it means you have done the job completely. (or)
try re-installing the software .

Epson stylus photo R280 won't print due to false low on ink


Try using a soft cloth saturated with rubbing alcohol over the metal contacts. Make certain all residue to include spent ink or oil from your fingers have been removed. Let air dry. If your printers Print Head can be removed separately, that is the way to go when cleaning components. It has been known that Print Heads fail also and need replacement.

Replaced a new cyan cartridge for Epson 1400. Printer ignored it.


Ye of course it could be faulty and Epsons are sometimes very fussy about using third party carts. Get it replaced at your store, try a different brand or buy a genuine Epson cart if you can afford it.

Red light is always on


See my answer to your similar question:

t is possible that the ink cartridges in your printer (especially applicable if you are using refilled or compatible carts) can not be read by the printer. Some compatible cartridges have a failure rate as high as 30% and so it is very possible that the machine either does not see the cartridges or can not read them.

Replace the cartridges with genuine Epson ones and try again. The genuine ink will also help to clear any hardening cheap ink in the print head.
