Resetting the Epson Ink Monitoring System -
Even though the CFS maintains a constant level of ink in the cartridges, the Epson monitoring system will signal that the cartridges are empty after a cartridge full of ink has been used. This ink level information is stored on the Intelligent cartridge chip. These cartridge chips have to be reset with out lifting the cartridges. This is done with Inksupply.com Auto Reset Chips. On older Epson printers, before the Intelligent cartridge, it is done mechanically by removing and re-inserting the Inksupply.com switch activators. CFS cartridges must be reset without lifting them.
Previous Reset Methods -
The resetting methods have evolved over the past couple of years. First the Swedish Reset method was used, then the Equalizer Program, then the F-16 Chip Resetter, and now the Auto Reset Chips.

Hope this helps you. Good luck!

SOURCE: "Ink cartridges cannot be recognized" when using genuine Epson

i had this happen to me twice with two different people, it is highly possible that your black inks are defective, its also highly possible that one of the other inks are causing this error. take them all out, and put one and see what happens, do this one at a time until you see something screwey.

also possible, the contacts on the printhead are dirty or are pushed in.

also possible, bad printhead.

Epson ink cartridges, always empty?


Epson has gone to great pains to ensure that third-party cartridges dont work. They really did a good job. Sometimes their printers wont even recognize genuine Epson cartridges. I saw a CX8400 with a brand new cartridge claim it was out of cyan ink after printing one 4 x 6 photo. Then it would recognize any cyan cartridge. It had to go back to Epson for replacement.

My Epson stylus color 740 printer was showing replace inks so i did and colour ink is find but anything that is in black wont print


Did you use Epson Genuine Cartridges?
ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine Cartridges. !!!!!!!!
That sounds like your problem.

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 MFC-240C All-In-One InkJet Printer. 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. .


IF YOU ARE USING GENERIC CARTRIDGES, MAYBE IT WOULD BE BETTER IF YOU DISABLE THE INK MONITOR.

This is the only advice I can give you.


The next step would be to disassemble the Epson, and clean the Pads/Heads. Click on link below.:

My epson r285 wont recognise compatable inks


My Epson R285 will not recognise compatible cartridges,mainly the black.I ran out of black ink and installed a compatible cartridge but it did not recognise it.To get the printer running I had to buy a genuine one which worked.I then ran out of all the other colours soon after and installed compatible ones which were accepted.I have now ran out of the black again but the printer will not accept the compatible cartridge.How can I solve this problem as the printer has accepted black compatibles before.
Thanks Padgy
