SOURCE: Epson rx580 printer

I just started calling Epson's customer service line every time. They always offered to FEDEX new ink. I got tired of waiting for it to come and began returning bad cartridges to office depot where I had bought it and found out that they will take it back if it doesn't work. Now I've decided that some (a lot) of Epson's ink cartridges for the RX580 are bad and that I just have to keep trying until I get ink cartridges that work. I had tried the qtip cleaning, checking the ink/sensor connection, and making sure I had them snapped in tight. I've finally figured out it IS the ink. BTW, I always use the ink Epson reccomends, so it is definately that many of their cartridges are faulty. It's a pain to have to return them but as long as I can return and replace them and eventually have a machine that will print when I need it to, I can live with that.

SOURCE: Printer will not read ink cartridge

Hello,

This is a common problem in the Epson line. You may attempt to resolve this first, by powering off the printer. Then remove the power cord and leave it unplugged for an hour. Then plug it back in and power on the Printer. The error may reset itsefl on its own.

If it doesn't please refer to this Tip Page on how to obtain and use a utility to reset your Epson. Even if your printer is not listed as those this will work with this method usually will work today.

If you have any trouble getting this resolved please contact me by using the Comment Box bleow.

Regards,

Hi, there is a possibility that the ink cartridges that you installed are not recognized properly. As a solution for that, try reseating the affected cartridges. You may also ask your vendor if they can replace the cartridges. Upon trying a different cartridges and issue persists, please contact Epson to process the warranty for your printer or ask a nearest service center in your area.

Hello. My Epson Stylus CX 4200 now flashes the letter E and all the lights flash, including "error." How do I get it working again?


here's what you can do:-disconnect the printer from the computer-turn off the printer-inspect for anything foreign inside like jammed paper-turn the power back on-remove the ink cartridge-check the chip connnector at ink tank and at head carriage. If its dirty clean it with soft moist cloth. -check the status monitor. which ink tank not recognized. -press ink light (1-4 times) depends on number ink tank not recognized, press 1 time again, carriage will move co replacement position, unplug and plug again all ink tank, press ink light 1 more.
if that doesn't work, replace ink cartridge ONLY if you have a spare. DO NOT BUY new ink as the printer is bound for repair.

Printer is running out of ink. To put new cartridge in I lift the lid and normally cartridge carrier moves over to left allowing replacement of cartridge. Today no movement---why? Green light is flashing...


Hi there.

It's probably jammed by dirt. Unplug the printer, move the carriage out of the way and clean thoroughly the metallic rails the carriage runs to using a cue tip.You might have to move the carriage multiple times to clean it totally. Finally spread a little fine grease over the metallic rail and again move the carriage from side to side. Now plug it in and try using it.

Let me know what happens.

Red and green lights are flashing alternatively and colour ink cartridge has run out. How do i change the cartridge?


Flashing alternately mean waste pad full. Reset using SSC utility or Adjusment program/resetter. But, you must replace cartridge before. Turn off printer, unlock carriage lock (left side of carriage at parking position). Move carriage by hand to replacement position. Replace ink tank. Reset using the resetter.

Ink red light on . which colour is out?


When red ink light flashes - one or more ink cartridges is low. When you print, a message on your screen will tell you which one(s).

When red ink light remains on - one or more ink cartridges is empty. When you try to print, a message on your screen will tell you which one(s).

Furthermore: When following the procedure for installing a new cartridge, if the red ink light was on or flashing, pressing the ink button will cause the carriage to stop with the cartridge that needs replacing under the "ink out mark" (ink droplet with a slash through it).

How do you replace ink in EPSON TX110? Paul


The procedure is shown on the panel you can see if you open the cartridge compartment of your TX110. However, it can take some effort to decipher the icons. It is known to work if the ink low light is on, untested otherwise.

  1. Turn on the printer.
  2. Press and hold the STOP button until the cartridge tray moves out of its bay. It will stop at the ink low notch pointing to the first cartridge out.
  3. Press STOP again. The cartridge tray will move to show you the next cartridge low on ink.
  4. Repeat until you know all cartridges out. After the last cartridge pointed to, the tray will move again and stop in the area where all cartridges can be accessed by hand.
That's it folks!
