OK, i know this one ;-)

1 take out the cartridge thats not recognised ( 1 or all dont matter)

2 do a ink change with no ink in

3 put ink cartridge(s) back in.... wiggle the cartridge(s) to seat the "chip" right

4 do a ink change again, if not just follow the steps again.

I had to do this 5 times the other day before it picked it up.

It does work

Ink light will not out and cartiage have ink


Epson printers don't actually measure the amount of ink in the cart, but instead estimate the ink use by counting the number of drops used for printing and cleaning.
If the head has been clogged, then less ink gets used, and when the printer thinks the cart is empty there will be ink left in it.
You can get a chip resetter that can let you use the little bit of ink that's still in the cart.

My Epson TX110 has a problem with printing. I have added new Epson certified printer cartridges but is saying that it still does not recognise the cartridges. Can you help - I have shaken the cartriges and...


did you mix the standard capacity cart and high capacity cart?
Try using all the same capacity cart... but most of the time, it's the ink cart chipset that is faulty... regardless whether it;s new or used.. the chipset is a small eprom located at the bottom front of the ink cart..

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

Ink cartridges not working in epson sx100 all in one printer


hi.make sure there is no tape or dirt on cartridge chip contacts.if still no joy trying iserting one cartridge at a time then installing.say insert black then will say others carts missing red blue yellow.keep going till they are installed.sometimes helps.make sure the carts have lastest chips installed version 5 or higher if compatable cart.should not be a problem if bought from epson.eg t711 etc will fit but must be new carts with new chip otherwise may not accept.i belive the sx100 has something like t811 or something.this may be the new chip.otherwise may just be a faulty chip on the cart.you can get refillable carts or ciss system on ebay you put in your own ink.they are brillant.cart chips reset when low ink.hope this may help.

Ink cartridge error


Get a new magenta cart, but make sure you buy a genuine one, not a compatible. The chip on the cart in question may be faulty (approx 30% of compatibles can be faulty).

If the error does not go when a genuine cart is installed you may have a faulty main board or carriage.

He did'nt know ink


If the machine has not recognised that the ink has been replaced then the ink cart is most likely faulty. This is especially true if using compatible or re-manufactured inks instead of genuine ones.

Change the ink again.

Printer says "Install ink cartridges correctly and then hit ok"


Try putting genuine ink it. If it still refuses to recognise the carts then it need to go back to Epson for a warranty repair. As an Epson eng 90% of the time, rubbish compatible cartridges are the source of such issues. They can even make the printer stop recognising genuine carts.

Do not mention to Epson that you used compatibles or they may refuse the warranty repair.
