Question about Epson Stylus Photo R220 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Held hostage by ink cartridge

Help! My stinkin' Epson printer has an empty ink cartridge. So I ordered a box of "compatible" replacement cartridges online from a reputable supplier. But my printer refuses to play nice with the "off-brand." It refuses to print anything in any color unless I spend a small fortune for a printer cartridge with the Epson label and a stupid guitar on the box.

How do I over ride this stupidity?

Love, Jean

    My Epson R220 has done fine with generic cartridges, up til tonight. I have tried everything that I know to do, but all of the sudden I am getting messages that I cannot print because it does not recognize the cartridges. HELP!
