SOURCE: won't recognize ink cartridge

Try this. Insert only 5 only ink tank, without LM. See status monitor. All 5 ink status look gray? and LM look cross. Try to another ink tank left. Last, insert all ink tank. All ink tank not recognized (cross sign)? If yes, the problem probably is epprom.

Hmm it sounds like the sensor itself did malfunction or get damaged, even though you clearly say you didn't touch the contacts. I am researching further but as far as I can tell it does not look like there is an over-ride for that error. If there is, it's proprietary Epson information they don't want getting out there. Have you tried calling Epson to see if they can give you some more detail on a possible solution? It is possible that the new maintenance cartridge is defective or the sensor on it is not functioning properly. Before trying another new one however I'd check with Epson.
Please give them a call at (562)276-1305

SOURCE: Replaced Ink carts on Epson

Hi there,
If you've replaced them in the past using the same ink there's a slight possibility that you have received bad cartridges. Have you tried or would you be able to swap the cartridges you have now with other cartridges just to make sure that it is not the problem.
Hope this helps!

Hallo I have a problem with my EPSON sx415. I bought new analog ink cartridges (not genuine). I puted it in my printer and tryied to print. But paper was white. So I decided to clean printers head with...


you will have to spend more money my friend! the epson ink is called durabrite, the cheaper cart you got is water based, the head should have been flushed before hand to remove the durabrite ink, what has happened is the 2 types of ink have mixed in the head and set. the only way to fix this is to remove the head from printer and have it ultrasonic cleaned, i had the same problem and tryed cleaning products with no affect! the only wat is to get it ultrasonic cleaned, or if you have the epson carts, put them back in and try and get it exchanged if still under a year old. as a new head is about the same price of the printer, however argos has the printer on offer at this min for only £39.99 which is cheaper than ink. oh yea, the reason that the printer is now not seeing the carts is that doing back to back cleans emptys a new set of carts after only 5 or 6 head cleans so your new ink is now useless, sorry for the bad news.

Ink carts being not recognized and you say its a brand new printer?
Heres what you may want to try.

1. Turn off the printer and disconnect the usb cable from the printer

2. Press and release the ink button once you see a solid green light and solid red ink light

3. Open up the printer cover and check out where is the ink cart holder positioned

4. It should stop in the middle part of the printer, you should see an arrow or a ink out marker (ink icon with a / with it( indicating which ink cart is out or not recognized or expended. (This is a usual process on all the epson stylus photo series I had)

5. Press and release the ink button again, it should stop to the next ink cart which you are having a problem and if it doesnt then your ready to reclamp the ink carts.

Just follow your manual usually theres an on screen instructions how to manually replace or reseat the ink cartridges. If the issue persist, you may want to contact epson, ask for a warranty procedure or what you can do next for this. (Either a bad set of ink cart or a bad print head) Good luck!
