Question about Epson Stylus NX400 InkJet Printer
My Epson TX100 printer does not recognise the ink cartridges. Is there an easy fix?
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)

Testimonial: "Thanks for your help. I have started using generic cartridges as I did with my Canon for years. Your help is much appreciated."
Try to check the ink monitors if it indicates a problem with a specific cartridge. First try to clean the gold contacts on the chip of this cartridge using a pencil eraser until you can the see contacts shine a bit. Then reinstall and press the resume button.
If this does not solve the problem, you need to change the chip on that cartridge. Note that only the color chips are interchangeable, the black chip isnt.
Hope this helps.

Yah I want to print black only I bought certified black in for nx400 and it won't let me unless I replace the 3 other color cartridges these epson guys are crooks!!!! I call customer service and hey claim that when you print in black only mode it still uses alittle bit of color. At least be up front they programmed it so you can print unless you continue spending money on their inks whether you need them or not. They sell they printers cheap because they know if you will buy triple the price in ink!
