SOURCE: Just installed Epson NX400 printer.

If you have re-inserted the inks, then you might have a faulty ink cartridge. M88/69 indicates Magenta is not recognized and B88/69 is for black. You can have the store replace those inks for you or contact Epson tech support.

SOURCE: epson stylus cx8400 cannot recognize ink cartridges

I had the same problem except it would not recognize any of the ink cartridges. I kept hitting the OK button over and over again with the same cartridges in place not removing them at all and it finally recognized them. Decided to go to maintenance on the printer to do a test, and it went right back to not recognizing the cartridges. So i pressed the OK button over and over again until it finally recognized all the cartridges again, but this time i did not try and go into the maintenance to do a test run. Plugged it up to the computer and it has been working ever since. So press the OK button until it recognizes the cartridges, and run no tests on it is what my solution was for the problem. Really is a pain but it works now.

SOURCE: "Ink cartridges cannot be recognized" when using genuine Epson

i had this happen to me twice with two different people, it is highly possible that your black inks are defective, its also highly possible that one of the other inks are causing this error. take them all out, and put one and see what happens, do this one at a time until you see something screwey.

also possible, the contacts on the printhead are dirty or are pushed in.

also possible, bad printhead.

SOURCE: epson rx595 cannot recognize ink cartridge

Just had this happen to me. Turned it off, turned it back on... nothing. In/out with the cartridge several times and when I blew on the contacts of the printer (where the little microchio on the cartridge touches) it finally worked. Did the blowing on the contacts help? Maybe, but more likely is that the it was just repeatedly trying to d oit before the machine figured it out.

SOURCE: Ink cartridge not recognized. But ink is new!


I have to ask this question of you, just to make sure this is not an issue. Are you using a factory new ink cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
If you are using factory new cartridges, then please call the manufacturers Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

It could be that the cartridges are not inserted properly in the carrier or just needs cleaning. Try to remove both cartridges from the printer and manually clean the nozzles. You may refer to this article on How to Clean the Print Cartridge Nozzles and Contacts Manually. Then reinsert one cartridge first and close the cover. If no error appears, reinsert the other cartridge. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the error. You can also try the Clean Cartridge function on the printer by pressing the Setup button -> Maintenance -> Clean Cartridges. It will then print the clean nozzles test page. If error continues, replace the faulty cartridge.

HP Printer Reset


Hi,

Resetting the printer can resolve several issues that may emerge. All the steps in the two sections below must be followed completely and in order for these resets to work. Performing a soft reset A soft reset, also known as an Electrical reset, can be used to restore the printer to a ready condition when a cartridge, paper, or other printing issues occur. This reset method should be used for the HP Photosmart 100, 130, 145, 230 and 245 printers. Perform a hard reset for all other HP Photosmart printer models.
  1. Disconnect any USB cables attached to the printer and remove any memory cards from drive bay.
  2. Restart the computer.
  3. Unlock the ink cartridge locking clips.
  4. Remove all ink cartridges.
  5. Lock down the ink cartridge locking clips.
  6. Close the main printer door
  7. Turn the printer off with the Power button and wait for the printer to shut down before proceeding to step 8.
  8. Unplug the printer AC adapter from the printer and the wall outlet or surge protector.
    NOTE: The adapter itself has an overload trip that may need resetting, but will not reset if power is flowing to it.
  9. Wait approximately fifteen to forty-five seconds to allow all current to dissipate from printer.
  10. Re-plug only the AC adapter into the wall outlet then into the printer, but do not plug in the USB cable.
  11. Wait for the appropriate missing ink cartridge error to verify that printer can recognize this error.
  12. Re-insert one ink cartridge only, to minimize confusion in case one of the cartridges is defective, and print an internal test page.
  13. If no errors are found, insert the other ink cartridge(s) and ensure that they are functioning by performing internal test pages or calibration pages. If an error occurs due to a defective cartridge, perform the appropriate steps for Resolving Ink Cartridge Rejections.
  14. After returning to the main Windows screen, reconnect the USB cable to the computer then to the printer.
  15. Test for printer functionality.
Performing a hard reset A hard, or mechanical, reset is performed when the printer is in a condition where its normal printing process is interrupted. Examples include a paper jam, carriage stall, or mechanical noise. To perform a mechanical hard reset, follow the steps below.
  1. Disconnect any USB cables attached to the printer and remove any memory cards from drive bay.
  2. Restart the computer.
  3. Remove any paper from the paper tray.
  4. Unlock the ink cartridge locking clips.
  5. Remove all printer ink cartridges.
  6. Lock down the ink cartridge locking clips.

  8. Turn off the printer using the power button and wait for the printer to shut down before proceeding to step 9.
  9. Unplug the power from the back of the printer.
  10. Unplug the power adapter from the wall outlet.
  11. Remove the rear access door.
  12. Locate the clutch inside the printer. c00020494.jpg
    NOTE: The clutch is located in the same place as pictured above in Figure 1, however, you must access it from the left, just above the paper output tray.
  13. Press the clutch firmly towards the back of the printer, while rolling the wheels in the back of the printer upward two full rotations.
  14. Release the clutch and roll the wheels up two more rotations.
  15. Locate and then roll the internal rollers in an upward direction until a clicking sound is heard.
  16. Reinstall and lock the rear access door.
  17. Connect the power adapter to a wall outlet.
  18. Reconnect the power cable to the printer.
  19. Turn the printer on.
  20. Re-insert the paper into the input tray.
  21. Wait for the appropriate missing cartridge error to verify that the printer recognizes this error.
  22. Re-insert one ink cartridge only, to minimize confusion in case one of the cartridges is defective, and print an internal test page.
  23. If no errors are found, insert the other ink cartridge(s) and ensure that they are functioning by performing internal test pages or calibration pages. If an error occurs due to a defective cartridge, perform the appropriate steps for Resolving Ink Cartridge Rejections.

Whats the meaning of error in canon e5 error?


"E5: The ink cartridge(s) is not installed. / The ink cartridge(s) cannot be recognized.

The ink cartridge may not be installed properly, or an unsupported ink cartridge may be installed.
Install a recommended ink cartridge.

Make sure to install both ink cartridges even when you set the machine to use only one ink cartridge in printing.
If one of the ink cartridges is missing, this error can occur."

How to Reset an HP Inkjet Cartridge
Hi there
Instructions
Things You'll Need:
Adhesive tape

HP inkjet cartridge can be refilled easily, getting it to work again in the printer is another matter.
The contacts on the back of the cartridge are programmed to read the ink level, but they don't reset for the printer just because you add more ink.
You must get the printer to recognize the cartridge as new.
You can do this easily if you have two other old cartridges, or you can manipulate the contacts on the refilled cartridge.


Step 1
Insert the cartridge you refilled into the HP Printer.
Have the printer print an alignment page, thus recognizing the cartridge. The printer will still read the ink level as where it was before you refilled it.
Step 2
Remove the cartridge from the printer and replace it with another old cartridge.
Have the printer print an alignment page with this cartridge so it recognizes it as a different cartridge from the first one.
Step 3
Replace the second cartridge with a third one and run the same alignment page.
Because the printer only retains the memory of two Print Cartridges, it will erase the memory of the first (refilled) cartridge.
Step 4
Insert the refilled cartridge into the printer.
The printer will now recognize the cartridge as being full.

Next Steps
Step 1
Tape over the contact squares on the top left corner of the cartridge's contacts. Insert the cartridge into the printer and run an alignment page. Ignore any messages that might appear saying there is a problem with the cartridge.
Step 2
Take the cartridge out of the printer. Remove the tape from the left corner and tape over the contact squares on the top right corner. Place the cartridge backs in and run another alignment page.
Step 3
Remove and reinsert the cartridge, this time with no tape on any of the contacts. Check to see if the printer recognizes the cartridge as being full.
Step 4
Repeat the above steps if the cartridge is still shown as being empty.
This time, use the bottom corner contact squares instead of the top ones. If you are still unable to reset the cartridges, using multiple cartridges is likely the only way to do it.

Lexmark x7170 printer cartridge error


Remove the color ink cartridge and double check that the plastic tape, which you removed from the cartridge is completely removed. I've noticed that sometimes a small piece of the protective tape tears and stay stuck on the cartridge causing the printer to give a false error. When replacing the cartridge be sure its fully inserted into the color cartridge holder and the locking mechanism locks securely.

Epson R320 printer will not recognize any of the ink cartridges


I tried two things of which one solved the problem. I am not sure which. Secondly, I have an R260 printer which is a less featured member of the printer family uses Claria inks like R360 and R380. I called Epson and they simply sent me replacement cartridges for the two black ink cartridges with which I had a problem. My printer did not recognize these new cartridges either. I noticed that both the ones I bought and the replacement ones have a slot hole near the green chip on the cartridge. The empty cartridge did not have this slot. They just had some circular depressions. So, I put a piece of masking tape over the slot and tried again but still no luck. However, when I removed the cartridge, this time a small piece popped out. This piece connects to pins on both sides. So, it is obviously an interface between the cartridge and the printer. I pressed this piece back in, replaced the cartridge with the tape on it back it and, voila, it works. Most likely this interface piece was loose and simply pressing on the cartridge didn't get it in far enough or who knows. You maybe able to take thiis piece out and replace it or merely push down on it with a pen but first, flash a light on it first to see if it is not sitting awkwardly.
