I have an Epson Stylus TX3OOF printer. I manually replaced the ink cartridges before following the prompts. Now the printer is displaying an error message and does not recognise the full ink cartridges.

    Hi that didn't work. The message displayed by the printer reads: Printer error See your documentation. This message will not budge no matter what I try. I have visited the control pannel several times. Removed the printer, added the printer, tried to select prompts to change ink cartridges but nothing works. I have also gone through all of the printer options. It's like i have frozen it.

Hi

I suggest you rub the print head into a plain paper until ink flows and then try to print again.



Before you return back the cartridge, Remove the power cable to turn it off. Move the ink cartridge carriage from left to right and from right to left. Then insert the ink cartridges.

They try to print again.

Let me know if it does not help. I will give more solutions. Regards

    Hi



    Did you purchase original cartridge for your ink cartidge to your printer?



    Try another solution, remove the USB cable and remove the ink cartridges and then close the cartridge door. Wait for INSERT INK MESSAGE ERROR TO APPEAR

    Then remove the power cable and to the power supply source. Wait for 3-5 minutes

    Then return the cartridge and let it calibrates

    Then try to print the test if possible. If it prints, then it solves your problem. Reconnect now the USB cable.

  • Benjamin Jr Singson Apr 01, 2011

    If still not working, I believe the ink cartridge you purchase it faulty and I suggest you pruchase new again. When replacing the ink cartridge and you already remove the cartridge. Turn off the printer first and then reinstall new cartridges.Then turn it off.

  • Benjamin Jr Singson Apr 01, 2011

    Sorry, I mean turn it on..

  • Benjamin Jr Singson Apr 01, 2011

    Hi



    You mention that the error message it not detecting the ink cartridge. That is why I suggested the first two. If only, not printing maybe the print stop service stop.



    Try this solution.



    Go to START MENU
    Choose Commamd prompt, right click mouse and run as administrator (You should be in this command C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32- If not type this command when you in the dos command prompt "CHDIR C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEMS32 and press enter")
    Type the letter "cmd"
    Type the word "net stop spooler"
    Exit
    Go to C: drive
    Choose to Windows Folder
    Click show content
    Choose system32 folder
    Choose spool folder
    Choose printer
    And delete all printing jobs pending
    Again go back to CMD window and type the word "net start spooler"
    Restart your computer and must also turn off your printer and then switch it on.



    If still not printing, try to add again the printer and set it as default printer. If it prints the test page. Then it solves your problem. Regards

My printer is not recognising the replacement ink cartridge although I've used these before many times


If you have just installed a new cartridge and you still see an ink related error, the cartridge may be incorrectly installed. Follow these steps to make sure the cartridges are correctly installed:

  1. Make sure the Epson Stylus is turned on.


  2. Do one of the following:

    • If your printer indicates that an ink cartridge is expended, press OK.


    • If your printer does not indicate that any ink cartridge is expended, press Setup, select Maintenace, and press OK. Then select Change Ink Cartridge and press OK.
  3. Open the scanner.


  4. Open the cartridge cover.

    Caution:

    Never attempt to open the cartridge cover while the print head is moving; wait until the cartridges have moved to the replacement position.

    To avoid damaging the Epson Stylus, never move the print head by hand.


  5. Press down all the ink cartridges until they click into place to make sure they are properly seated.

    Note:

    If a cartridge is properly seated already, you may not hear a click.


  6. Close the cartridge cover and press it until it clicks into place.


  7. Close the scanner.


  8. Press OK to begin charging the ink. This takes about 2 minutes.

    You see a message on the display screen when ink charging is finished.

    Caution:

    Never turn off the Epson Stylus while the ink is charging or you'll waste ink.
If the issue persists, it appears to be an issue with the cartridge(s). Contact Epson for further assistance.

Why is power button light blinking green on Epson SX200 printer?


Regarding your recent inquiry about the Epson T071 ink cartridge error message ("Ink Light is red", "Cartridge Not Recognized", "Replace Cartridge", "Installed ink cartridge is expended." or similar cartridge/printer alert message) associated with your Epson SX200 printer, the cartridge probably has a mis-programmed smart chip...

NOTE: If you had the cartridge refilled, the cartridge chip must be reset. Re-programming, which typically yields a green light to show success, it does not always result in correct smart chip reprogramming. It is also possible they may have forgotten to re-program the ink cartridge. If a compatible/clone cartridge, it could be a reprogramming issue or defective chip (which is common). Or, such a failure could be an electrical failure of the ink cartridge itself*. Unfortunately there is nothing you can do from home....the chip(s) need to be re-programmed (at refiller) or replaced with a new cartridge from vendor.


*OTHER POSSIBLE CAUSES OF FAILURE:
Either the external chip or internal ink sensor is electrically bad (the internal ink sensor detects if cartridge is really out of ink). If you return the cartridge to your retail refiller and they re-program the cartridge(s) a 2nd time but the "replace cartridge" message, or similar blocking message persists, then this is the likely cause and the cartridge will need to be replaced with a new one.

1) Confirm if this is just a nuisance/annoyance alert (i.e. "non-genuine" cartridge ) vs. an actual 'unrecognized cartridge' alert (i.e. Red X's on printer display / Windows pop-up message). Please visit the following Inkjet411 support page which will help you delineate the difference: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=73

2) On some Epson printer models you may need to scroll thru the menu options AT THE PRINTER'S CONTROL MENU (i.e. right arrow key) to help determine which specific ink cartridge is actually causing the 'Unrecognized Cartridge' error condition. On the other hand, for general 'non-genuine' cartridge alerts, typically you can bypass these errors by clicking thru the acknowledgement prompts or via the arrow keys: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1939

3) We suggest you remove all the ink cartridges, inspect the smart-chips condition (on rear side) and ensure there are no cuts/gashes or ink residue present on the micro-chip surfaces. To be sure we suggest you clean the micro-chip surfaces; click here to see 2 different pictures of this along with cleaning instructions: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1939

4) If the error continues (following ink tank re-programming a 2nd time), then we suggest you install a new genuine Epson ink cartridge into the printer to verify the permanent PRINTHEAD is functioning ok. Here is how the PRINTHEAD works: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=2054

NOTE 2: Following refilled cartridge installation, your printer/computer may display an ink alert message such as "non-genuine cartridge" or "you have not installed genuine Epson ink cartridges" - these are COMPLETELY NORMAL alerts when using refilled ink cartridges. Press proceed/continue/accept/yes/OK to dismiss the prompt. In some cases you may have to scroll over using the arrow keys to dismiss the alerts. Additional alerts may be displayed the first time you go to print or copy - dismiss the alerts accordingly to resume normal print operations. For more information on Epson ink cartridge alert messages please visit: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1939

-------------
CAUTION: Be advised, the use of compatible/clone cartridges (i.e. sold thru the internet from overseas) are known to be problematic and may cause printer errors or permanent PRINTHEAD damage (especially for 3rd party inks which contain volatile organic compounds or VOCs). We do NOT suggest refilling these types of ink cartridges.....refilling of Epson original/genuine ink cartridges is only suggested!

-------------

NOTE 3: If, after replacing the cartridge(s), with brand new Epson Original ink cartridge(s), is the only solution which corrects the problem, then you likely have a defective cartridge (internal ink level monitoring circuit), unrelated to the refilled cartridges. If, after replacing the cartridge, or cartridges, with brand new Epson Original ink cartridges, does NOT correct the problem, then you may have a defective PRINTHEAD (i.e. permanent electrical sub-assembly which the cartridges plug into). For more information please visit our support page which explains the natural degradation of PRINTHEADs over time: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=2934

How do I replace ink cartridge?


you can use the maintenance utility on your driver to perform ink cartridge replacement. or you can perform this method should you be using it stand alone:

Remove and Install Cartridges Be sure you have your replacement cartridges handy before you begin. You must install new cartridges immediately after removing the old ones. Caution:
Do not open ink cartridge packages until you are ready to install the ink. Cartridges are vacuum packed to maintain reliability.

1. Turn on the Epson Stylus NX400 Series. If a cartridge is low or expended, you see a message on the Epson Stylus NX400 Series LCD display screen. If a cartridge is expended, you must replace it to be able to print. If a cartridge is low, you can continue printing until the cartridge needs replacement.
If you’re replacing a cartridge before you see a message on the Epson Stylus NX400 Series
LCD display screen, press Setup, select Maintenance, and press OK. Then select Change Ink Cartridge and press OK.
follow on through each one of the inks and it should be good there on

    Help Epson CX3200


    Hi,

    I just like to ask to where specifically you can see the red light. It will help us determine what cause the red light. To give you heads up as well, the Printer's LCD screen can help us determine what exactly the offline condition of the CX3200 is:


    Error message: No color or black ink cartridge-->Press the Color Copy button to install a new ink cartridge.
    Solution: The indicated ink cartridge is not installed. Please install the necessary cartridge(s).

    Error message: Color or black ink out -- >Press the Color Copy button to begin replacing the ink cartridge.
    Solution: The indicated ink cartridge is out of ink. You will need to replace the necessary ink cartridge(s).


    Error Message: Ink cartridge error -- > Press the Color Copy button to begin replacing the ink cartridge.
