Problems with a compatible cartridge?

Since the new "chipped" Epson cartridges have come out, we have received this question a few times. Not to worry, it is an easy fix and you will be able to continue using ther lower priced compatible cartridges!

There are usually only three reasons that this question is asked:-

The transport tab has not been removed. This is by far the most common reason and is very easy to resolve.
  • Remove the cartridge
  • Remove the transport tab
  • Return the cartridge to the printer but
  • Wait at least one hour before printing (preferably 24)

The printer is reporting an error (with lights on the printer or a message on screen). The error / message should tell you what the fault is and usually how to correct it. If there is an error light on the printer but no message on the screen, you may need to reinstall the "Epson Status Monitor" to see the what the error message is (refer to your Epson manual / CD). Messages may include

  • "The installed ink cartridges differ from the original EPSON ink cartridges for this printer... ...You printouts may be different from those printed using the origional EPSON cartridges. Do you want to continue using the currently installed ink cartridges?" or similar message. Depending on the compatible cartridges, the printouts will usually not differ so simply reply "YES" to this message. Printing will continue as normal.
  • Communication Error: This is usually down to the print cable not being plugged in but may also be down to hardware problems. This is never due to cartridge problems.
  • Print cartridge not recognized: This can sometimes be resolved by removing the cartridge from the printer and carefully cleaning the chip on the cartridge. Simply lick a piece of tissue and gently rub it on the chip. Ensure the chip is dry and return the cartridge to the printer. If the error persists, it may be worth tring another cartridge. If more than three cartridge report this error then it may be a hardware fault occasionaly experienced with Epson printers.

The cartridge has an air lock - The printhead is moving backwards and forwards accross the page but little or no ink os being delivered.

  • First check the transport tab - refer to "The transport tab has not been removed" above, otherwise R
  • Remove the cartridge from the printer
  • Hold the cartridge in the orientation it sits in the printer
  • Give the cartridge a firm but sharp tap, down on a protected solid surface
  • Return the cartridge to the printer but
  • Wait at least one hour before printing (preferably 24)

Problems like this are rare, and are limited to the newer Epson printers. Be assured, you can always purchase lower priced, quality ink cartridges with ClickInks.com and we guarantee your satisfaction!
