Question about Epson Stylus Multifunction Inkjet Printer/ Copier/ Scanner

Open Question

My sx105 Epson printer didn't recognise the new black cartridge.

My black ink run out, so I refill it but the printer didn't recognise it.
I bought a new black cartridge which is compatible from Tesco but it didn't work and the printer still gives me the same error.
Can anyone help me please.

SOURCE: Canon MP520 cartridge swap and ink refill

Canon MP520 multifunctional device - deactivation of the ink level counter
1. You can do it only when the printer counter releases the warning message - "the ink cartridge is nearly empty" = yellow warning mark

2. You have to do this procedure four times - for every cartridge one times
3. At the screen you will see three warning messages
- for the first one press "OK"
- for the second and third one press "Yes"
4. The fourth message tells you that you can do the ink level counter deactivation by pressing the "Stop/Reset" button (7) for more than 5 seconds. Do it.


Later you can see another type of warning message at the screen:

In this case you can not follow the previous procedure - there will not be any other warning messages.
Just follow the message on the screen and press the "OK" button (5) and you can print.
Unfortunately - I do not know for how long time it works.

You have to manualy check the ink level and refill (change) the cartridge before it is completely empty! You might brake your warranty!
When you insert the new original ink cartridge, the counter will work properly again.

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

SOURCE: Epson SX200 refuses to recognise compatible cartridges

Hi Howard,

Bottom line, if the printer doesn't accept them, then they are not compatible... I'd recommend returning them for a refund and find a supplier that has tried and tested cartridges.

I'd love to be able to recommend a supplier but as I don't have an SX200 I can't... Others might be able to help if you can indicate where you are in the world as the SX200 is, I believe, zone specific.

Best of luck

Epson workforce 520 won't recognise ink cartidges


When replacing ink on the Epson Workforce 520, Ensure the cartridges have the correct/same number of gold contacts. Ive seen them with 7 and 9 gold square contacts and they were otherwise identical, and the ones with 9 contacts threw an "cartridge not recognized" error on the printer's dispay.

Epson TX100 won't recognise ink cartridges.


Yes, Genuine Ink Cartridges.

Did you use Epson Genuine Cartridges?

ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine Epson 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. 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)

My printer doesn't recognise the new refill; and i can't seem to overide it to print. I tried a cheaper refill and then bought a genuine epson and it still doesn't recognise the replacement cartridge. ...


If this printer takes the Epson 69 cartridge you need to make sure the chip is replaced or reset on the refills you buy. I own a Cartridge World ink refilling store and I can't fill these cartridges yet because there are not replacement chips (that don't violate Epson patents) or a resetter for the chip. The chip communicates with the printer how much ink it thinks is left in the cartridge so you don't run it dry and ruin your printer. Once the chip says the cartridge is empty it will refuse to print until the chip is reset. It seems to me like you bought two refill sets from sellers that are scamming the consumer by not mentioning the chip problem. This is the main reason why I don't recommend internet refills is because it is really easy to take advantage of people. I would not buy refills until a reputable store like Cartridge World or Office Depot sells refills.

Dell 942 AIO printer won't recognise black cartridge:


I think you purchased a black cartridge with bad electronics. Basically your cartridge can't communicate with your printer and you should exchange it for a new one. There is no way to "fool" your printer into accepting refills with bad electronics. What you can do is when you get the message that you aren't using genuine cartridges and it won't be able to estimate ink levels is to check the box indicating to ignore the ink levels.

Epson sx105 Refuses to recognise a replacement black ink. Suspect that might be because not used for 4 months


You MAY need to purge the black ink channel in the printer. Use the cleaner supplied in refill kits and a squeeze bulb to get the channel flowing. Some times the printing head has to be removed to clean it if really bad.

I need to refill a TO88120 black Epson printer cartridge.


Epson cartridges cannot be refilled like normal cartridges. They use a special ink. You would be better off buying a replacement cartridge as I've never heard of a good result with anyone who has attempted to refill an Epson. Usually leads to havong to replace a printer. Sorry I don't have a better solution.

Color ink cartridge says empty i just filled it


When you put in a "new" cartrage the printer sens an electrical charge to the cartrage to set it up properly. So I would treat this as a new cartrage, rather than a refilled one. Go to the printer menu and re install the ink cartrage in question, it should recognise it and start the function as a new one, good luck
