SOURCE: my epson r285 wont recognise compatable inks

My Epson R285 will not recognise compatible cartridges,mainly the black.I ran out of black ink and installed a compatible cartridge but it did not recognise it.To get the printer running I had to buy a genuine one which worked.I then ran out of all the other colours soon after and installed compatible ones which were accepted.I have now ran out of the black again but the printer will not accept the compatible cartridge.How can I solve this problem as the printer has accepted black compatibles before.
Thanks Padgy

SOURCE: My printer will not recognise non epson cartridges


ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine Epson Cartridges. !!!!!!!! How you were able to use generic is amazing. I was not able to do that!

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.

TRYING PURCHASING GENUINE, and see what happens? This is the only advice I can give you. If you find this helpful, pls rate me.

Thanks and Good Luck :0)

SOURCE: I have an Epson SX400. When using non-Epson

Short answer is no... The SSC utility stopped development about 3+ years ago and hasn't been compatible with newer printers produced since.

The SX400 does have a suitable reset utility if you do some searching for "adjprog tx400 download" BUT word of warning, look for a reputable source and don't just run stuff without checking thoroughly for virus/malware payloads.

Hope that helps.

Why doesn't my black ink work in my Epson WorkForce 600 series after replacing the black ink cartridge?


The Epson printer may only use genuine ink cartridges which contain a chip so that you cannot fill the cartridge with ink or use non genuine ink cartridges.

OR

Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.

Hello, My epson printer doesn't print the scales of grey right. It prints black, but the scales of gray look like green-blue. Thank you PS The ink catridges are new.


Have you recently changed the black cartridge with a non-standard or remanufactured cartridge? I'm having the same problem with my deskjet and it started when I changed my Black cartridge for a non-HP refill.

Changing black & colour ink cartridge


My guess is that it will be the non gen carts they cause heaps of trouble, beleive me. Hard to tell you for sure but the first thing I would do if you brought it in for repair would be to put in manufactures cartridges.

One of the inks doesn't work -epson rx 620


I am, and I'd say you've hit the nail on the head non OEM or non OEM ink in the past, has traveled it's way along the system to the print head filters and clogged them, virtually impossible to clean such microscopic filters and holes, and very tricky even to get apart. The fix really is to replace print head and reprime with gen ink, not cheap if not under warranty.

You can try magic wand stuff and spin the wheel and try your luck but I never sent you OK!

search print head cleaner, ie

or my favourite bandaid, Fill the purge station with windex, let sit parked up for a day, run 20 cleans with new gen ink, and pray!

My other favs include, go to shop and buy new and dont buya non gen. inks
