If you leave your printer powered on a lot of the time, then your cartridges might clog the printhead.

Epson has some exercises to clean the printhead, but they probably won't work. Call their customer loyalty hotline and tell them you think you haven't got your money's worth. They may offer you a replacement with the same or newer model. I have done this 3 times already.

Are you using Genunine Cartridges!!!!

ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine Cartridges. !!!!!!!!

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)

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.

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.

Printer will not print


More info needed here. Are any lights on or flashing? Have you tried going through the cartidge instsallation process again (but just taking out and putting back the same cartridges when told to put in new ones)? Are the unrecognised cartridges genuine Epson or compatibles? Have you tried putting genuine Epson cartridges in (even empty ones will do) to see if they are recognised? A response to these question will permit me to give you much more specific help.
