If your printer is not detecting the cartridges, there might be the following possible reasons: The cartridge chip is dirty or damaged. They are not compatible with your printer. They are not installed properly.
Remove all of the new cartridges you had installed and re-install the old (empty) cartridges that worked. Restart the printer, this should remove the not recognised error (and tell you some are empty).
The “Incompatible Cartridge” message may signal you that the cartridge was placed in the wrong slot. In case you get such an error, make sure the cartridge model numbers match your printer model and your country/region. After that, check if they are installed correctly in the corresponding slots.
Check the box your printer came in. Most printer boxes clearly display which cartridges are compatible with the printer right on the box. Find your printer model on the manufacturer`s website. The appropriate cartridges should be listed on the printer page.
Compatible ink (or compatible toner) is manufactured by third-party manufacturers and is designed to work in designated printers without infringing on patents of printer manufacturers. Compatible inks and toners may come in a variety of packaging including sealed plastic wraps or taped plastic wraps.
Myth 1: Perhaps the most common misunderstanding is that compatible cartridges will damage your printer. There is no evidence to support this. The truth: Compatible cartridges are designed to fit into your printer and work in exactly the same way as original cartridges, even though they may look a little different.
It is usually situated above the metal contacts, right in the center. Please note that the button is very small and almost unnoticeable, so don`t miss it! Use the end of a paper clip to press the button, hold it for about 10 minutes, and voila — you have just reset an Epson ink cartridge with a paper clip like a pro!
Your Epson printer may have failed to recognize the new ink cartridge, or its ink level system has read it as empty. For numerous Epson printer models, there`s a way to bypass this built-in ink checking system through a quick cartridge reset. Raise the printer`s top cover and then hold the Ink button.
Select Print Settings from the pop-up menu. Select plain papers or Envelope as the Media Type setting. Select the Grayscale check box. Click Print to close the Print dialog box.
Verify the ink cartridge(s) is inserted properly. Some cartridges snap in place, and if they are not inserted fully, the printer won`t print anything. If a lever is moved from its original position to allow for installation of ink cartridges, ensure it is returned to its original position.

Did a test print and the problem was back. Repeated a few times with the problem reocccuring. Switched out the cartridge. no better and now the printer doesn’t recognize its own brand cartridge.
