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 can I solve the following problem? My Epson NX415 does not recognize non eom cartridges. It started to recognize these cartridges then suddenly stoped.


In some cases it is because you may have gotten cartridges from a different supplier who does not "chip" their cartridges. Their philosophy is let the buyer beware. The true solution to the problem is to buy OEM cartridges. I hate to sound trite, but why do you think they sell the printers so cheap anyway? It is so they can make the money off the ink.

My Epson NX415 does not recognize refilled and reset cartridges. What can I do about it?


Don't let your ink levels drop below 25% before refilling and resetting your cartridges. There is an inner and an outer chip on these cartridges. The inner chip disables the outer chip when it's contacts are no longer bathed in ink. So, it doesn't matter if you "reset" the outer chip after refilling your empty cartridge because the chip was disabled. I'm really curious how you refilled these cartridges yourself without souring yourself on refilling from the experience. I own a Cartridge World ink refilling store and I refilled a set of these cartridges when we had replacement chips available (we don't now because our chip distributor was violating Epson patents) and it was an absolute mess, took forever, and the cartridges still didn't work in our test printer.

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.

I just bought an Epson Stylus NX415 and the it won't print because it says "cannot recognize ink cartridges". I install the ink cartridges that came with the printer, and they are in the proper order. ...


Sounds like you have either a defective cartridge but if both cartridges are not being recognized it's likely a problem with the printer.
Take it back to the store you bought it from for a refund or replacement.

Epson Stylus DX 8400


If ink cartridge Unrecognizable, there are two posibilities : Chip Error at ink tank, or printer error. For chip error, try to plug the ink tank to another printer (same type). If the ink tank recognized by other printer, so the problem is printer.
So ;
1. Check chip conector at head carriage.
2. Check the wiring of the head, and chip.
If two point above is ok, the last action is check the power supply and board. It may be epprom is damage.
