The black catridge is depeleted. Some cartridges have a chip which is resetted after power up so you won't know how much ink is left.

On the other hand never mix orij. and compat. carts together.

pls. vote for better service... Thank you

Ive changed ink cartridges and still ink light is flashing and not printing


Chances are you are either;
1. using an "expired" ink cartridge. or

2. the Chip on the ink cartridge is erased and will not work.

Many re fillers do not reset the chip after refilling them.

This is Epson's way of saying "I do not like compatible, refilled cartridges...I hope this helps, Happy Holidays...Steve at TakeCharge ReCharge

SX200 WILL NOT RECOGNISE NON STD INKS


Check your update settings in the printer software. Turn off any automatic updates from Epson. To get updates, put some old Epson cartridges, good or bad, in while you update. Epson will log on to your printer and kill your non-Epson cartridges during auto updates.

BLACK INK NOT WORKING


Black ink head clogged/cartridge empty. Go to Printer Utility and do a Nozzle Check, Print a Pattern. If Black pattern lines are missing/broken then do another cleaning. Don't forget to try a new cartridge if the cleanings do not work. Refurbished Epson printers are great and can be purchased at www.epson.com/clearance. I have used them for 15 years.

Epsom sx100 keeps saying cartridges are not compatatble but are using epsom inks


If you have Genuine Epson cartridges and they do not work, call Epson Tech Support. You have to be patient [they're in India] and you may have to ask to speak to someone in the US if you're getting nowhere with TS.

Ink light and on/off light flashing


Turn printer off for a few minutes then turn back on. If still flashing your cartridges may not be compatible.

My SX600FW Epson Stylus will not print black even with new toners?


We took ours to a local repairer who used a special program to blast the heads. We had tried head cleaning ourselves and this didnt work. It has had to go back two or three times but it does work for several week after.

How to clean inkjet of epson styles sx600fw?


Had same problem with my SX600FW. Changed all cartridges umpteen times because head cleaning process empties working cartridges. Ended up with none of the colour cartridges working! Paid Epson repairer £20 for them to tell me the print head was clogged and repair will cost as much as a new printer!! Problem started just after warranty expired!! I shan't be buying Epson again even though it was a great tool when it was working.

EPSON Stylus SX600FW printer. Recently changed


Did you use Epson Genuine Cartridges?

ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine Epson Cartridges. !!!!!!!!
That sounds like your problem.

In Purchasing Epson's CX 5400, CX4600, & CX7400 and more, I found out that Epson does not like Generic Printer Cartridges. I also Purchased a Brother. That also does not like Generic Print Cartridges. Color that should be Yellow, will turn out Green, Blue Brown, etc. These printers have a CHIP that will detect if it is Generic or Genuine. When they see it’s Generic Cartridges, it will print lines thru the words, stripes across the picture and also do a mix match with the colors.

That's what these Companies do., so they can keep selling the ink cartridges. Some Printers, are able to use Generic, and some are refillable. Some you can refill them up yourself and I heard, quite MESSY.

So I learned, thru trial and error, that you must use the ORIGINAL Genuine Cartridges for these PRINTERS. Some people say some models work fine compatible, but not mine.......


I had to replace the printer, but Epson, Lexmark & Brothers are always on sale. My Brother & Epson cost me $50.00 with Rebate. Don’t waste too much ink in cleaning it.

This is the only advice I can give you. If you find this helpful, pls rate me.

Thanks and Good Luck :0)
