SOURCE: Epson printer says "cannot recognize ink cartridges".

Are you using genuine epson cartridges? Many generics simply dont work on the newer printers. Once the printer decides the cartridge is empty, it sends a signal to the chip and that's it. You might hear ink, but if the chip says empty you can't use it. It also has the annoying habit of doing this when there's still 10-15% of the ink left.
I use reusable cartridges from http://www.ccs-digital.com They hold 2/3 more ink and the chips automatically reset to full if you remove and re-insert the cartridge. Instead of replacing the entire cartridge when it's empty, you pop out an internal ink tank and replace just that. So you know the chip has already been recognized by your printer. The ink tanks cost under $3. I think these are a brilliant invention.

SOURCE: Epson rx580 printer

I just started calling Epson's customer service line every time. They always offered to FEDEX new ink. I got tired of waiting for it to come and began returning bad cartridges to office depot where I had bought it and found out that they will take it back if it doesn't work. Now I've decided that some (a lot) of Epson's ink cartridges for the RX580 are bad and that I just have to keep trying until I get ink cartridges that work. I had tried the qtip cleaning, checking the ink/sensor connection, and making sure I had them snapped in tight. I've finally figured out it IS the ink. BTW, I always use the ink Epson reccomends, so it is definately that many of their cartridges are faulty. It's a pain to have to return them but as long as I can return and replace them and eventually have a machine that will print when I need it to, I can live with that.

SOURCE: epson rx595 cannot recognize ink cartridge

Just had this happen to me. Turned it off, turned it back on... nothing. In/out with the cartridge several times and when I blew on the contacts of the printer (where the little microchio on the cartridge touches) it finally worked. Did the blowing on the contacts help? Maybe, but more likely is that the it was just repeatedly trying to d oit before the machine figured it out.

SOURCE: Epson Stylus SX400 "Ink cartridges cannot be recognized"

Try this: First check which cartridge(s) are not being recognized. In my case where I replaced all three color cartridges, two were recognized right away but one was not. You find out by sending a print request to the printer and looking at the ink cartridge levels diagram in the dialog window. In my case two of three were fine but one had a red X on it. So I removed it and cleaned the contacts with alcohol then rocked it in the slot after pressing it in. It was recognized and the charging process began as normal.

Reset the firmware on a Epson xp-830 all in one printer I upgraded and not printer is not recognizing my ink cartridges


That is very unusual, however you may try to remove the ink carts completely, shut down the printer and let it rest a few minutes. (use new original cartridges) replace in the carriage compartment, turn it on and it should start doing a reset (head cleaning/alignment/etc.) and a factory adjustment. The new updated firmware may be set to recognize original Epson ink carts and if you have Non-Epson Carts installed, it may by default, inform you that the ink is missing. You are allowed by LAW to use any cartridges of your choice. Turn the printer on to do a full rest and it should work. If not, you will have to contact the manufactures technical support team.

I replaced a black cartdridge epson sx 510w, but the printer doesn't recognized it?


I would recommend the following:
  • Remove the cartridge from the printer.
  • Turn the printer off.
  • Wait 30-60 seconds.
  • Turn the printer back on.
  • Reinstall the ink cartridge.
If the printer still doesn't recognise the cartridge it is likely to be faulty. In which case I would recommend seeking a replacement from wherever it was purchased.

Epson Stylus NX415 does not recognize ink cartridges. Cartridges are Epson 88's. Worked for awhile, and then stopped recognizing them. Tried powering down the printer, cleaning the cartridges, turning...


Epson Printers are sensitive in terms of Ink Cartridges.. The latest Epson Printers does not have ink reseter.. Ink reseter are already built-in on the ink cartridges.. The problem on this printer is when you have a cartridge on your printer, let say, 30% of the ink level, even though your ink is new, and you change it without using the right ink replacement method, it will recognize your ink as a 30% ink level. When your ink level drops to 0%, but you have remaining 70% of the ink, it does not recognize it anymore. The chip on the ink cartridge is already registered as an empty cartridge.

How do reset my EPSON 6200 L cartridge chip?


Hello

Buy a smart chip resetter. It is available online for about $10.

Wipe clean the Epson cartridge using a paper towel. Pay special attention to the area where you attach the chip-resetter. Gently clean the copper nodes at the back end.

Clip the Epson chip resetter to the cartridge's back. Make sure the resetter's end with the button comes on the top.

Press the button on the top of the resetter and hold it for 5 to 10 seconds. This activity will restore the default OEM settings of the cartridge. The tiny LED light on some chip resetter models also indicate that the smart chip has been reset. The printer then recognizes the cartridge as full.

Remove the chip setter from the cartridge by pressing the release clip on the resetter's bottom.

Ink not compatable on sx 400


Try pulling out the cartridges and powering down the printer. Put the cartridges back in and pull power back up. That may let the printer recognize them and sober up. If you have recently replaced the cartridges, make sure that the new ones are EXACTLY the same as the old ones. Even if they fit, they may not work.
