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.
Open the ink tray in the center of your printer.

Make sure that your printer is plugged in and turned on. In order for the ink compartments to slide into view, your printer must be powered on. The ink cartridges will slide to the right side of your open tray. This is the replacement position.

Press the left or right arrow button to select Maintenance > Reset Ink Level. Press the start button, the OK button twice, and then the start button again. Press the right or left arrow button to highlight the ink tank you refilled and press the OK button to select it. Repeat for each ink tank color you refilled.
When you fill a cartridge, the ink sometimes doesn`t make it all the way to the bottom of the reservoir. Fix this problem by removing the cartridge and injecting more ink into the sponge through the exit hole. Air bubbles also can get trapped inside the cartridge, blocking ink flow.
The process of refilling a printer cartridge is fairly simple. You`ll need to remove the old ink cartridge and then fill the tank with new ink. After that, you`ll need to reattach the cartridge to the printer and run a test print to make sure it`s all working okay.
Find the Cartridge Reset Button.

Turn the ink cartridge to where the microchip can be found. Using the end of a paper clip, press the reset button that can be located above the metal contacts, right in the center.

The order for the Epson Workforce 545 is black, yellow, magenta and cyan. Before taking the new cartridge from the sealed bag, shake it a couple of times to get the ink flowing. Gently remove the cartridge from its packaging and remove the yellow tab on its end to reveal the vent hole.

Epson R320 says black ink is empty
ANSWER : I have this printer, and while your advice says a refill shop can reset the chip, I was told by a chip -resetter device seller on ebay that this particular printer won’t work with their chip-resetter. Are you sure about this? I am asking and knowing that you won’t send me an email when this is answered since you didn’t ask for an email when I registered. But perhaps I’ll check back

Epson Artisan 837 Cyan Ink Blotches-leaking
ANSWER : Just encountered same problem (with light magenta) and discovered it was my own fault! There’s an adhesive-backed piece of aluminum foil that serves as one wall of the ink channels in the white plastic transition junction where it connects to the printhead. In trying to clean the printhead, I apparently nicked that foil, but didn’t notice when I reassembled, so I created a real mess in the printer. I cleaned everything up and then carefully (to cover the damage but not plug the ink channel) smeared a light coating of Goop household cement over the nicked hole, let it cure for about 6 hours, put everything together, and the leaking stopped.

Epson ink cartridge leaking?
ANSWER : Posting this cause it worked for me. I have an Artisan 837 that was leaving pools of blue on the page. I tried Epson’s recommendation of cleaning the print path by pressing the copy button on the control panel (with nothing on the flatbed). Printed 5 pages and the last 2 were clean. 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. Yet, it accepts the 3rd party one.
