Sounds like the electronics on your cartridge are bad. You need to either get a brand new cartridge or another refilled cartridge.

I replaced a black cartdridge epson sx 510w, but the printer doesn't recognized it?


I would recommend the following:
  • Remove the cartridge from the printer.
  • Turn the printer off.
  • Wait 30-60 seconds.
  • Turn the printer back on.
  • Reinstall the ink cartridge.
If the printer still doesn't recognise the cartridge it is likely to be faulty. In which case I would recommend seeking a replacement from wherever it was purchased.

My printer is not printing..page comes out blank. inside, all the lights are flashing on the ink cartridges...any ideas what's wrong? thanks


this message means that the cartdriges are empty...
if you have bought new cardridges and lights still flash then the printer just dont recognize them right.
possible cause 1:
dirty cartdrige (or printhead) chip contacts > clean them with alcohol and cotton (switch printer off first).
see the chips in this photo:

possible cause 2:
bad printer controller: the chip in the printer that communicates with the cartdriges is gone mad... take the printer to service...

all the above are valid assuming you bought original cartdriges if not then do so...

How do i make printer accept refilled cartridge t


Maybe you did not refill and insert it very well.

follow this steps in refilling your ink
1. remove the ink cartridge from the printer
2. make a hole at the top end of the cartridge, the hole can be made under the label on the cartridge by using a sharp/hot pin.
3. if you are using a syringe and needle in refilling, make sure you did not insert it into the hole too much so that the cartridge does not get damaged in the process.

4. make sure the ink is not over-filled to avoid spillage which can cause a hell of damage on you printer as it does to my previous one.

5. Gently use the label or a masking tape to cover the hole and insert it into your printer.

Note: The printer gives a message that the cartridge is empty or non compatible, ignore the message and continue with your printing.

It is also advisable that you refill your cartridge not more than 2 times.

If this solution does not help you, contact me on holamydes@gmail.com for more assistance.
