Without knowing where your "compatible " cartridges came from, it's difficult to say. The correct cartridge types for a 1290 are T007 and T009. Do your cartridges with lugs show these numbers? In general, compatible cartridges will fit into the cartridge carrier without problem. Yes, Epson did fit plastic key lugs to their cartridges to artificially make cartridge A different to cartridge B, when in reality they were identical e.g. C46 and C48. Now, compatible cartridges for your printer are incredibly cheap on E-Bay. My advice is just to throw away the troublesome luggy ones you have and buy some more on E-Bay - they will fit without trouble.

Epson l200 is not able to print black colour. It can print colour picture without black colour. Ink is sufficient.


It's probably that the spray nozzles which are very very small .. have become blocked.

You can try removing the cartridge and wiping it with a tissue with a drop of vinegar on. If that doesn't work, you need to replace the cartidge

Be sure that the installed printer is listed as the 'cx5400' printer, not some other printer.

Talk to a different supplier, e.g., http://www.theinkshop.ie

Compatible ink cartridges dx8400


Epson cartridges are microchipped.

Do your new cartridges carry the same chip?

If not, they will not work.

If all else fails, return them to the supplier and explain they are not recognised by your printer.

Compatibility of Ink cartidge.


The MP600 does not use the 40 or 41 cartridges, it uses individual color (and black) ink tanks. But other models (MP190, MP460, MP470, etc) do use these cartridges. The error message you are receiving indicates that the printer does not recognize the cartridge you installed as a valid black ink cartridge. This can mean that either the cartridge is faulty, or that the printer has a problem.
I would suggest trying another new cartridge, and if you still get the same error, to contact Canon for support options if the unit is still in warranty.

Wrong colours!


Hi Dannydoda,

I understand that, you are using different compatible ink cartridges and having problem with colors.

HP printers has a small built in firmware, which can detect the original ink cartridges and the ink level.

Using other compatible ink cartridges may damage the print heads of the printer.

I suggest you to replace the ink cartridges with original or Genuine HP cartridges.

You can also try some of the steps to fix the issue as given in the web link.

please click on the web link given below and perform the steps carefully.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00042885&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=79499

This should fix the issue.
Have a great day!

Cartidge problem


Many "compatible" cartridges are badly manufactured or even labeld wrong. These can damage or block the connectors on Epson printers. your best bet is go buy new ink and try them, then if it still dont recognise, you could buy some ink cleaning cartiridges and give them a try - Google "Epson Print Head cleaning" Failing that go buy a new printer - Epson's are real cheap new.
