Epson wf 3640 can't recognize cartridge

My printer was printing a task I had sent to the 3640, printed out one page, and then gave a can't recognize cartridge message. The cartridges are all Epson and the tabs are in great shape, yet nothing I do clears this message allowing me to use the 3640

Remove the cartridge and carefully clean the chip contacts, using a cotton bud dampened in Isopropyl Alcohol. Also clean the contacts in the machine.Allow to dry after removing any excess, with a DRY cotton bud. Then replace the cartridge firmly and securely. Do NOT touch the chip or machine contacts with your fingers.

Common problem with Epson Printers.
Either the print head is clogged, or the tube that goes from the pump to the printhead fell off.

Open the printer cover so that the ink cartridges are in open view and then UNPLUG THE PRINTER" so that the ink cartridges wont go back to home position. (If there is a change INK cartridge button, then press that then uplug the printer when the cartridge stops moving.)

You can try to clean the print head by folding up a couple paper towels, then saturate it with windex with amonia. Place it under the print head assembly and manually move the print head assembly over the paper towel back and forth to clean the bottom of the print head assembly. You should start seeing ink on the paper towel.

After cleaning, run the cleaning program that Epson has, and try it out.
If it still doesn't work, then you might have to repeat this a couple more times.
If it still doesn't work, then it might be time to get a new printer.
Hope this info helps.
Good luck.

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.

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.

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

Thanks and Good Luck :0)

How do I download the epson workforce 3640 printer onto my computer from the internet. I can't find my disk


I assume you want to download the drivers for the Epson Workforce WF-3640. Those are available on the product support page: https://epson.com/Support/Printers/All-In-Ones/WorkForce-Series/Epson-WorkForce-WF-3640/s/SPT_C11CD16201 . You can also find the manuals and troubleshooting information here. However, the third-party software that was on the CD is not available from the Epson site. Epson may have replacement CDs available, see https://epson.com/faq/SPT_C11CD16201~faq-255477 for the phone numbers to contact Epson support to see if the WF-3640 disc is in stock.

I hope this helps.

Epson WF-7620 will not print black.


I had a similar problem on my 3640 and had to run the clean cycle about 20 or so times. If you feel you are capable, you can also remove the print head and do a manual clean. YouTube has a few videos on how to do it. I have done this to one of my printers with very good success.

How do I print 1 page out of several. Cannot find print preview


You can perform this function from the software program you are using. Place the page you want to print on the screen, then go to the print function. Look for something like 'Print current page", or if you have the page number, you can enter it in a 'print pages' box.

The printer will then print what you sent to it.
