Do not use Resetter.......

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)

BOUGHT NEW CARTRIGE FOR MY NX 415 AND THEY AREN;T REGOGNIZED!


If the cartridge is not the same code as the previous used by the printer, then it will not be compatible. Your printer has been replaced by Epson Stylus NX415 All-in-One
  • One 69 Black Ink cartridge (T069120)
  • One 69 Cyan Ink cartridge (T069220)
  • One 69 Magenta Ink cartridge (T069320)
  • One 69 Yellow Ink cartridge (T069420)

  • Therefore, ensure that the catridge follows the above code (69).
    Best regards.

    Gives me an error88/69


    This error means you are out of ink. The error will show a colored box, that's the ink you are out of. The 88/69 is the type of ink you can replace it with.

    UNABLE TO USE #88 INK FOR MY EPSON STYLUS PRINTER.


    I don't know where you got your #88 cartridges from or who told you that they were compatible with your printer, but they were wrong.

    The CX7450 will only work with the #69 type cartridges.

    The cartridges themselves may look similar but the chip programming will be different for each.

    Hope that helps.

    Just installed Epson NX400 printer. Keep getting M88/69 "Cannot recognize ink cartridges" error. Tried re-inserting cartidges twice already and still same error. What next?


    I found a solution to the same prolem that you guys have. I took the cartridges out and shook them horizontally, instead of vertically, with the large surface up for 3-4 seconds. Re-inserted them back in. Then I started seeing on the LCD "Recharging Cartridge". When it returned to regular copy screen, I turned the printer off and turned it back on. No more error message. It's been working for almost a day now. Try it to see if that works for you. Good Luck.

    FYI. I just bought NX400 last Friday. The error message came on this morning.

    I am trying to refill my ink cartridge and i dont know how. HELP!!!


    When your ink starts getting low, you will see a red light flashing on the printer. There is a tear drop shape next to the indicator light on the top of the printer. You can keep printing until the light stays red. Once the light stays red, they will need to be changed. When you need more ink, Epson will have a window pop up on your computer wanting you to purchase ink from them. You do not need to do this. We bought our ink cartridges at Best Buy. This printer uses DuraBrite Ultra Ink. There are 2 types; 69 or 88. They recommend 69 for heavy use and 88 for moderate use. The 88 has about half the ink the 69 does. We buy the 69 because it lasts much longer. We use this printer about 3 times a week on average and we haven’t had to change the ink for about 6 months. The 69 black ink at Best Buy is less than $20.00 and the color ink is about $14 for each of the 3 colors. The color 88 comes with all 3 in a pack and it’s about $30.00.

    You should not remove any old cartridges until you are ready to replace them because if there isn’t any in there it can dry out the nozzles. You open the scanner and press the stop button and the printer head moves to the correct position. Open the cover and squeeze the tabs that are there and remove the old ones. Then as mentioned in the set up, insert each one in the correct color and press until they click. This printer was actually the easiest that I have ever had when it came to changing the ink. Another thing that you should know is that you cannot refill the cartridges. They have to be new.
