Make sure that the cartridges were not dislodged or that contaminants have made there way up onto the contacts. Also ensure that your using carts with part number 69 for all four or (68 on black if using hi cap)

Just purchase and set up Epson Stylus CX9400 Fax Series. States "Cannot recognize ink cartridges." It also has a RED box with a Y and a YELLOW box with a Y both have same number (69) next to them Removed...


Make sure cartridges are part number 69 on all four or 68 on the black if its the high cap cart.

Also check the carts contacts and the machines contacts in the cartridge recetacle for contamination or damage.

I would like to refill Epson Stylus CX9400 old ink


I wouldn't recommend it because it will void your Epson warranty.

Color Ink prints are nice, but this cannot be an everyday printer --- the cartridges will put you in the poor house.

Buy a cheap monochrome laser printer (recommend the Brother brand) and save the purple ink for the elections.

Cheers!

Epson Stylus DX 8400


If ink cartridge Unrecognizable, there are two posibilities : Chip Error at ink tank, or printer error. For chip error, try to plug the ink tank to another printer (same type). If the ink tank recognized by other printer, so the problem is printer.
So ;
1. Check chip conector at head carriage.
2. Check the wiring of the head, and chip.
If two point above is ok, the last action is check the power supply and board. It may be epprom is damage.

Epson Stylus DX 8400


Hi,

It sounds like you have incompatible cartridges for your printer... Some folks have reported that disabling the Status monitor and turning the printer off/on, plus rebooting the computer can solve this but that's just something I've heard.

You may want to double check with the ink supplier that they have provided the correct cartridges for your DX rather than a CX model.

REPLACED TWO 68 CARTRIDGES IN CX9400 EPSON


Generic carts are sometimes not recognized. Epson's chips are the cause. I solved this problem for a small investment. I purchased a CISS system for about $75.00 [ink included], that's the cost of OEM carts that do not last very long. The CX9400Fax is an Ink Hog, which is why the printer is so cheap. If you want a CISS go to http://www.inkproducts.com/ink-store/ They are great if you need help and will call you back in less than an hour. Get the Waste Ink Kit when ordering the CISS.

Horrible ink issues..


Unless you are printing a lot in that color, my Epson Stylus photo color R300 uses black at about twice the rate as the color ones. Most packages or ink, I find, also come with two black and one of every color. All my color ones seem to emply at approximately the same time as the others.

I have an Epson CX8400 printer and I just installed new ink cartridges (genuine Epson)all four and I get the error message "cannot recognize ink cartridges".


Try the following:

1. double check the part numbers of the cartridges and also their expiration date.
2. reseat the cartridges
3. after you place the cartridges back, close the scanner part and press and release the stop button.
4. If same issue, either an issue with the cartridge(s) involved or the printer itself

Hope this help

Why won't my CX9400F recognize Epson ink cartridges


The Epson CX9400F printer seems to require replacement of all the color ink cartridges, even if only the Black is empty.

I print almost exclusively in Black, but with my first change of Black, I was forced to change all the color. At the time I thought Epson did not provide completely filled color ink cartridges.

Just yesterday, I replaced Black and the printer complained it did not recognize the rest of color cartridges. So I replaced all the other color ink cartridges and now it works fine.

You might want to check out www.clickinks.com for cheaper, mail order alternatives which are Epson ink compatible, if you are not in a hurry.

New out of box!!


If you already have tried reseating all of the inks and and inks are still not recognized, Please contact Epson tech support for a replacement ink or if they find out after some diagnostics that it is the printer that is having an issue they would be replacing your printer.
