A blinking orange light means an empty or incorectly installed printer cartridge. Be sure you installed the number 45 black and number 78 tri color cartridges. The 41 tri-color looks the same but will generate an error. Also, ensure that the cartridge is not empty or dried out.

Epson Artisan 1430 Inkjet Printer ink cartridges not reconized


If it is not reading one particular cartridge please try the following as it has worked for us 90% of the time.

  1. Remove all ink cartridges
  2. use a pencil eraser on the chip of the unreadable cartridge.
  3. install the cartridge you just used eraser on.
  4. if printer accepts cartridge, turn off printer.
  5. turn on printer and install remaining inks
This should solve the unreadable problem.
This is fairly common problem, usually effecting compatible units.

Not recognizing ink cartridge?


1.Check the ink. Printers are picky machines. They are programmed so that they would recognise a particular kind of ink. Thus, when you buy compatible ink cartridges, make sure that these ink are truly ones specifically made for your printer. Otherwise, the ink will not work with your printer.


2.Follow the instructions to the letter. Just like the manufacturers of original printer cartridges, the manufacturers of compatible ink cartridges have instructions on how you should place and install the cartridges in the printer. You should follow these instructions to the letter so you can be sure that they would work.


3.Clean the printer head. It is also possible that the reason why the printer would not recognise the compatible ink cartridges you bought is that the printer head itself is clogged. Such problems can occur, especially when you have not used the printer in a long time. You can clean the clogged printer heads with a cleaning solution made especially for printer heads.


If the cartridge itself is the one that is blocked, you can try soaking the cartridge in warm water first. Afterwards, dry it with a lint-free rag and then install it in your printer.


4.Check the circuitry in your printer. Another possible reason why the printer would not read your compatible ink cartridges is that the printer itself has a problem with the circuitry. You can try topping the cartridge with ink first before reinstalling it into the printer.


If that fails, you should bring your printer to the repair shop. Be warned though: If your printer is under warranty, the warranty will no longer be valid if it is found out that you have used compatible ink cartridges.

When I put in a new cartridge it reads low toner... its a brand new cartridge... I took it back and got another... same thing happens. Old cartridge that I am trying to replace works fine when I put it...


Ensure you are using the correct model or cartridge or if the cartridges you are using are not OEM, change of manufacturer of compatible cartridges. The best solution should be to use Lexmark cartridges, but not the cheaper.

Thanks.

Canon pixma mp210 printer - replaced ink cartridges with compatible ones - printer working fine except when printing both ink lamps come on solidly, not blinking, and status says there is no ink in...


Dear merryan,

This printer uses FINE cartridge which has memory chip inside that store ink level data. Once the cartridge is EMPTY we cannot restore this data to be FULL even though we physically refill ink until FULL. So the printer keep displays NO INK warning.

Similar with using compatible cartridge, NO INK warning still remain because ink level data has been recorded as empty. Why?. Here is the explanation. As far as I know no third party compatible cartridge produced this printer since canon protect it with the chip. Compatible cartridge that sold in the market is refurbish cartridge which repacked with another brand.

To fix this problem we need to deactivate ink level detection function by holding down STOP/RESET button for about 9 seconds or more for each cartridge. The consequence of this is ink level become UNKNOWN.
Hope this will be helpful to you

Regards,

Xanda

Epsom stylus CX4700 won't print - new ink cartridges installed


They cut costs on Epson compatible cartridges by using low quality ink and chips or not resetting the chips at all. Sounds like you got cartridges that the chips were not reset on so your printer thinks all the cartridges are empty. I own a Cartridge World ink refilling store and I would never recommend purchasing compatible Epson cartridges from anyone. I would buy refills of Epson brand cartridges and make sure the seller reset the chips.
