SOURCE: Status Monitor says ALL ink cartridges empty

Using recycled ink cartridges in your inkjet printer is never a more economical way to do colour printing, unless you are willing to become a master technician on your particular product and have ready access to print heads and machine engine unit replacements, you will also need manufactures service software/website to reset waste counters/error codes.

It is expensive to print in colour full stop. Printing cost is at least 30cents inkjet and 10cents toner/laser per sheet

Laser b/w and colour is far cheaper per sheet, but setup costs are one time expensive but they are also a lot more reliable printing system.

Your machine will stuff up sooner rather than later when using non genuine consumable, and when it does it will cost more than the machines worth to even look for repair, so be prepared if choosing this road to purchasing a new printer every few cartridges if you are lucky.

If your using non genuine products and you want machine looked at by a professional the first thing you will need to do is install all genuine products in to your machine to allow correct fault diagnostics to be done, this is before any repair cost that maybe incurred.

Recycled/refills/aftermarket ink cartridge faults include – not recognizing ink, poor print quality, error codes, wont come to ready, erratic carriage movement, lines, waste counter issues and also paper feed problems, circuit board/connection faults caused by leaked ink .Not all faults are immediately apparent it takes time for the poison ink to replace that in the supply system then issues begin.


Cheap printing can be achieved using b/w lasers they cost less than 2 cent per sheet and have a brilliant reputation for print quality and dependability. Then if you need the occasional colour go to the shop, let them have the hassle, stress, time and expense of running the machines and the cost is still relatively cheap to you.

There are many consumers still printing with 10 year old laser machines, you would be extremely lucky to find a 3-5 year old inkjet.

If you must recycle well buy one that has already been proven to be adaptable to the concept, so that means go back to older units that went so clever.

Older Lexmarks, Epsons and HP were once easy targets, there was and is a lot of development gone into managing bulk ink deleivery systems, software has been cracked and parts can be sourced.

Inkmizer canon/epson bulk ink modified printers

Chipresetter be prepared for some frustrations and mess.

P.s. Most new machines come with starter inks that do not contain as much as new ones ussally 3ml instead of 5ml to enable cheaper selling cost, but also note that about 2ml of ink is in the tubes that run from ink carts to print head.

SOURCE: Epson Stylus DX8400 empty ink cartridges but actually new

Sometimes there is a coating on the chips (even original epson ones!) - Old wives tales say dont touch the chips with your fingers - but take the carts out one by one and wipe your finger over the chips (1 finger for one chip - dont reuse the same finger on a different chip)

Reinstall them and that worked for me on a dx4500 with original epson carts in

SOURCE: "Ink cartridges cannot be recognized" when using genuine Epson

i had this happen to me twice with two different people, it is highly possible that your black inks are defective, its also highly possible that one of the other inks are causing this error. take them all out, and put one and see what happens, do this one at a time until you see something screwey.

also possible, the contacts on the printhead are dirty or are pushed in.

also possible, bad printhead.

Ink cartriges not being recognized by printer


It is not uncommon for an Epson printer to fail to recognise Epson cartridges. It is either due to failing to go through the proper cartridge replacement cycle properly, or more seriously, due to a communication problem between the cartridge and the main board. To fix the first, simply go through the cartridge replacement cycle again (see your manual how to do this before the cartridges are empty). Simply take your new cartridges out when told to, and put them back in again when told to insert the "new" cartridges. If it's the second problem you need specialist help, or simply sell your printer on e-bay for what you can get.

RX500 EPSOM STYLUS PHOTO PRINTER Won't Print


I used some less expensive generic ink cartridges on my RX500 and had a similar experience with the black. If you're already using the Epson brand, done the head cleaning, realignment and nozzel checks, I'm not much help. Try Epson's support at their web site.
