My printer is not recognizing the ink cartridges. This is just brand new out of the box yet when I turn on or off the printer the same thing happens. As what I see on my computer when I try to print, the ink cartridges are all empty!!! I see a solid red ink light on my printer, I have been using epson products these past years ago but this is the first time I had this problem!

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!

Epson printer CX9300 error B73 cannot recognise ink cartridge


A clone cartridge is a type of third-party ink cartridge that uses an identical chip to the original ink cartridge. People buy cloned cartridges to save money, since original cartridges are more expensive. However, sometimes the Epson printer does not recognize the cloned ink cartridge. After you install the cartridge, you might receive a message that says "An ink cartridge cannot be recognized." In this case, you will have to disable the Epson printer monitor.

I have replaced the ink cartridge Magenta (T0813), with the new one, but the printer Epson R390 can't recognize it. It says Ink cartridge cannot be recognized. Make sure ink cartridges are correctly...


It might possible that the new cartridge is defective.
Try to turn off your printer, wait at least 3 minutes, turn back on.
This may reset the printer.
You could also try to remove your magenta cartridge.
Shake it a little, this will remove any trap air and fill the catridge cavity.
Reinstall the cartridge.

Hi. My printer will not recognize the magenta ink. I tried replacing it with 3 different new ink cartridges, but when I try to make the printer charge the new ink, it does nothing and says I'm out of...


Hi

Some ink printer had ink resetter and just go to ink set up.
If your printer have ink resetter, do it otherwise it will not recognized new ink installed.

If not, some new ink cartridge when the tape is remove, there are cases that the sticky leaf on the ink cartridge, just rinse it with warm water or alcohol to detect the ink cartridge. Turn off your printer and your computer. Then return the ink and open your printer and computer to print again.

Note : Use only ink that is compatible with your printer because it you use other cartridge it will damage the chip set of your printer and it will not recognized any cartridge at all. SO beware.

I hope it helps you.

Ink not compatiable


Hi. When I fitted the second set of cartridges to my Epson Stylus Photo 1400, the printer failed to recognize any of them, even though they were genuine Epson! I repeatedly installed and un-installed them without success. After giving it a bit of thought, I had a hunch that the contacts on the cartridges might not be making good contact with the contacts on the printer as the cartridges seemed a little loose. I removed each cartridge in turn and after putting some adhesive tape on the opposite end to the contacts, (there are grooves cut into this end, but the tape drops nicely into them when you install the cart) replaced them all. (This had the effect of pushing the cartridges harder against the contacts). Switched on again and all carts worked fine. So it seems that even Epson can't make the cartridges to fit their own printer properly! Having said that it's a great printer otherwise. I hope this is helpful to you.

Don't try to fix it. Put the machine back in the box and return it Epson for a new one. Do it before the machine is 28 days old or they will give you a graded machine.

The error can be caused by the cartridges themselves but best to get the whole lot exchanged.

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.
