Where did you check the scratches on the metal contacts of the ink? If yes there should be a scratch or marked on the metal contacts of the cartridges it will determined that the connection of the ink and pritnhead is Ok., Please verify where did you check the scratch.

Now you may also try to reseat the printhead and the ink cartridges., If this failed there might be a problem on the printhead you need to call kodak and request for printhead replacement toll free 1 800 421 6699 ext 05

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.

Epson 1400 not recognizing an epson ink cartridge


not necessarily faulty cartridge - had same problem went thru various cartridges some worked some didn't - in fact they weren't epson - so bought epson from office depot and that would not work, so not an issue of ink dried up - if yr printer is fairly old may be easier just to replace rather than waste time and money on trying to figure out problem

The other coloring ink work fine except for the black ink. I use the transferable with syringe on it 's carthridge once ;can this clogged the tip end?


Hi,

Yes clogging can be one of the reason here. You can check this as follows: gently blot the print head on a damp tissue. A good cartridge will leave a full dark band of ink. Your cartridge will likely leave a weak smudge of ink, with perhaps none if you repeat. BTW, on your printer a remanufactured cartridge would show as full even if it is empty. The printer will assume any cartridge it does not recognize must be a new (full) cartridge. Only if after cleaning the head it does not work then please replace the cartridge. Please let me know if this does not help else please accept it.

Thank You for contacting Fixya.com

Epson printer says "cannot recognize ink cartridges".


Are you using genuine epson cartridges? Many generics simply dont work on the newer printers. Once the printer decides the cartridge is empty, it sends a signal to the chip and that's it. You might hear ink, but if the chip says empty you can't use it. It also has the annoying habit of doing this when there's still 10-15% of the ink left.
I use reusable cartridges from http://www.ccs-digital.com They hold 2/3 more ink and the chips automatically reset to full if you remove and re-insert the cartridge. Instead of replacing the entire cartridge when it's empty, you pop out an internal ink tank and replace just that. So you know the chip has already been recognized by your printer. The ink tanks cost under $3. I think these are a brilliant invention.

New Canon ink tank not recognized.


Check that the cartridge chip is not soiled or damaged in any way... Give it a quick clean, check that there's no ink anywhere else on the cartridge as there are sensor points that an LED uses to check the cartridge ink levels too.

If none of that works, phone Canon and request a replacement as some cartridges are known to have faulty chips.
