Epson Stylus CX7800 doesn't recognize new cartridges

I just put all new ink cartridges in my Epson DX7800. I am unable to print because it states that my color ink is out. (Sometimes it says just one color, other times it will say two or all three.)
It does read the black ink as full. I didn't use Epson cartridges, but a compatible brand from myinks, whom my sister has always used without problems.
I believe the problem is with the printer as I have never used color ink to print with it since I've owned it, and yet it showed that all color ink was out after owning it just a few months. What's going on? (an email to Espon with the problem in the beginning about never using the ink from the color cartridges that came with the new printer was returned saying that this was b/c everytime you turn the printer on, it uses a little ink to clean the heads).

Now, with brand new full cartridges, I continue to have this problem. Any solutions?

I'm not familiar with your model but Epson has used a very durable ceramic printhead that had a fatal flaw; it wants to be used often, otherwise it clogs beyond restoration.

I have had to junk a number of Epsons (and some rebranded ones too) because of clogged printheads.
They work fine for a long time IF used daily.

The record was one branded Texas Instruments which died after not being used for 2 WEEKS.

I customarily recommended them for hard use but not for home users.

Will my epson stylus nx415 printer print if there is only one out of 4 ink cartridges installed?


That seems to be what it means. I am unable to even use the scan function on my epson 500 without all of the inks installed and with ink.

Epson stylus dx6000 error message e-02 have tried


Hi

Chances are the mechanism to recognize the ink cartridges is already damage and it may cause a lot having it replaced. I suggest to get a new printer instead specially if you have tried reseating the ink cartridges several times and won't work still.

Thanks for using Fixya

Changing the ink cartridges?


I have an epson (2 of them). I have to raise the lid and then hold in on the color button for about 6 seconds. Yours should work similar to mine.

Lcd screen says no ink but they are full/new


You might have to pull out your cartridge/s and try dabbing the spot where the ink comes out (on the printer - not on the cartridge) lightly - with a Q-tip dipped in isopropyl alcohol.
How long ago was it since you last used your printer? These types of printers don't like to sit for more than a week or two without you printing at least one page on them.

When i print i have lots of lines in the pics!!


These lines are caused by the printheads being clogged. I recommend trying to clean them with rubbing alcohol. Epson printers have a habit of the heads drying out.

As a last resort.... you could pull the cartridges and place a drop or 2 of alcohol into the holes where the cartridges connect to the printheads. Don't put the alcohol in the cartridge themselves as this will dilure the ink.

Ink cartriges not being recognized by printer


It is not uncommon for an Epson printer to fail to recognise Epson cartridges. It is either due to failing to go through the proper cartridge replacement cycle properly, or more seriously, due to a communication problem between the cartridge and the main board. To fix the first, simply go through the cartridge replacement cycle again (see your manual how to do this before the cartridges are empty). Simply take your new cartridges out when told to, and put them back in again when told to insert the "new" cartridges. If it's the second problem you need specialist help, or simply sell your printer on e-bay for what you can get.

In some printer drivers you have to use the their software to inform that you have fitted new cartridges in a form of installation wizard, so assuming you have done that the power aready light on printer should be steady. If not there will be a hardware or software fault, so to determine:- Disconnect printer from usb port and mains Go to printer and faxes in control panel, find the Epson printer icon and right click and delete. Restart pc and reconnect printer to a different usb port if possible, this should then be recognised by windows and either automatically install the driver or ask for your cd rom with driver on. The other way is to install the driver first and then reconnect printer when prompted it depends on model. If still no printing, then there is a problem with the printer itself, which can by an expensive repair, unless you purchase a new one which may be cheaper. I don't know what it is with Epson, i have had two and both after a few cartridge replacements have either refused to print or unable to use all the color cartridges.
