Question about Epson RX620 All-In-One InkJet Photo Printer

RX620 "Ink Cartridges cannot be recognized"

The first time the cartridges needed replacing I used some unofficial cartridges - the printer came up with the error message above and there's nothing I can do to reset it. Tried getting new set of Epson cartridges and putting those in but error message won't budge.  Tried the reset trick (start/stop/b&w/colour) but that does not work - any ideas?

Try pressing down on the cartridges after inserting them and closing the top of the cartridge carriage. Worked like a champ on my R320 printer!
Cleaning the contacts on the cartridge with a soft tissue may help too.

I cant print it says I'm out of black link and I just replaced it and it's flashing E 1 6


From http://www.refreshcartridges.co.uk/igloo/clearing-canon-pixma-error-message-e13-e16/

Locate the STOP/RESET/RESUME button on your printer which is represented by a triangle within a circle on the body of your printer and is usually in red, white or black as pictured below. With the reset button located hold it down for at least five seconds and then release it.

My HP Photosmart D-7160 keeps advising me that the yellow cartridge is empty even though I just replaced it. Any ideas?


Note that illustrated instruction some of the following can be found at:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00692953&cc=ca&lc=en&dlc=en&product=1156652&tmp_track_link=ot_search

Step one: Reset the printer

CAUTION: Do NOT perform any other type of reset on the printer before the ink initialization process has been completed.

1. Without turning the power off, remove the power cord from the back of the printer and from the wall socket.

2. Wait 30 seconds and reconnect the power cord to the printer and to the wall socket. Turn the unit on if it is not already turned on.

3. Check the printer for the error message. If the error message still displays, go to the next step.

Step two: Clean the cartridge contacts

Lift the top cover.

Locate the ink cartridge indicated in the error message. Squeeze the gray tab below the cartridge slot to release the latch and then lift the latch.

Remove the cartridge indicated in the error message.

Gather the following cleaning materials:

Distilled, filtered, or bottled water. Do not use tap water, alcohol, or platen cleaners.
Lint-free cloth or swab. Eyeglass wipes and coffee filters work well.
Lightly moisten the swab or cloth and squeeze out the excess moisture.
Holding the cartridge by its handle, wipe the copper contacts.

Replace the cartridge and then close the latch and the printer top cover.

Check the printer for the error message. If the error message continues, go to the next step.

NOTE: The printer might take up to 15 seconds to clear the error and recognize the cartridge after closing the cover.

Step three: Replace the cartridge

If the error message continuess, replace the indicated cartridge with a new cartridge.

You might also want to perform the built-in internal tests to verify that the printer internal firmware is functioning properly.

NOTE: The tests do not verify that the computer and printer connections are working properly.

It is always preferable to perform all these tests when the communication cable has been disconnected from the printer, and after having turned off and on the printer.

1. Make sure plain paper is loaded in the In Tray.
2. Press and hold the Power button.
3. Press the Resume button four times.
4. Release the Power button.

Trust the above helps resolve your problem. Please vote. :)

The following error message appears on the color graphics display after you insert a cartridge: Remove and Check Print Cartridges . The printer will not print.

  2. Close the printer, wait 10 to 15 seconds, then look at the LCD display.
    • If the LCD display reads Insert Color Cartridge in Left Stall , the color cartridge may be causing the problem. Follow the steps below:

      3. Close the printer and wait 10 to 15 seconds.

      4. Reinsert the black or photo cartridge.
      5. Close the printer and wait 10 to 15 seconds.
      6. If the LCD display reads Remove and Check Print Cartridges , replace the black or photo cartridge.

    "remove and check cartridge" error message


    http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/genericDocument?docname=buu02180&cc=in&lc=en&dlc=en

    I resolved the "remove and check cartridge" issue after reading the instructions at the above address. Most importantly, I replaced both cartridges and the problem was resolved.
    The color cartridge appeared to be the issue. It had been in for months and used infrequently.

    Error code: U150 The following ink tank cannon be recognized (Cyan)


    U150 ink error fixed!

    I too was getting the error for unrecognized ink cartridge. Then the little green circ board fell out of the end of the ink cartridge and it hit me that maybe if I put in the little green circ board from the old ink cartridge of the same color, then maybe the ink cartridge would be recognized. It worked! So don't throw out an ink cartridge that still has ink just because of that error and hold onto your empty cartridges in case you need the little green/gold circ boards.

    This works!
