There is nothing wrong with the black ink. Just run the head cleaning for better printing.

1. Go to printer and faxes
2. Right click your printer ( Epson Stylus Multifunction Printer/ Copier/ Scanner InkJet)
3. Click printing preferences
4. Click Maintenance Tab
5. Click Head Cleaning
6. Run head cleaning for 5 times then try printing.

Looks like the nozzles of the cartridge are blocked. (Nozzles are very tiny holes on the cartridge).
Did you buy a new cartridge? Then did you remove the tape covering the nozzles, before installing it in the printer?

I have an Epsom TX100, it has run out of black ink. I have replaced it with a 91N cartridge, but it is saying it is not compatible.


Hi leona_sha321,

TX100 doesn't use 91N ink cartridges that was why it is saying that it is not compatible. below are the list of inks for your TX100

T0731 73N - black
T0732 73N - cyan
T0733 73N - magenta
T0734 73N - yellow

Thank you. hope this helps

Epson TX100 won't recognise ink cartridges.


Yes, Genuine Ink Cartridges.

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. It also will not let you print anything, if only one of the cartridges is empty.

I wanted to print only Black, and would not let me, because I did not have any ink in one of my cyan cartridges. Go figure.

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. .

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

Thanks and Good Luck :0)

Epson Tx100 does not recognize my ink!


there is a chip re-setter located just above the cartridges. it is actually a small button switch. if that does not work, try to remove the cartridges. just lift them (1 by 1) slightly then put it back again

ink light on? Check status monitor. Usually after jammed paper, printer trouble to recognized ink. Do change ink tank procedure, unplug and plug again ink tank.
