    No need to panic. Epson printers are just very sensitive when inks are not Epson brand and if there is a piece of paper or something that gets in the printer.

SOURCE: Epson printer says "cannot recognize ink cartridges".

Are you using genuine epson cartridges? Many generics simply dont work on the newer printers. Once the printer decides the cartridge is empty, it sends a signal to the chip and that's it. You might hear ink, but if the chip says empty you can't use it. It also has the annoying habit of doing this when there's still 10-15% of the ink left.
I use reusable cartridges from http://www.ccs-digital.com They hold 2/3 more ink and the chips automatically reset to full if you remove and re-insert the cartridge. Instead of replacing the entire cartridge when it's empty, you pop out an internal ink tank and replace just that. So you know the chip has already been recognized by your printer. The ink tanks cost under $3. I think these are a brilliant invention.

SOURCE: Epson workforce 600 continue to

If this message appears when you turn the printer on it will need a repair, this will be down to a sensor fault.
If this message appears when you try to print Check you are using the correct paper type and size settings, on the printer if being used standalone or via the printer driver if using via a computer.
Also try using a different paper type and brand ideally Epson paper as it is an Epson printer. If the fault continues the printer will need a service.
As this printer was released this year you should be covered by some form of warranty, contact Epson for a service.

Did you use Epson Genuine Cartridges?
ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine 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 MFC-240C All-In-One InkJet Printer. 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. It also will not let you print anything, if only one of the cartridges is empty.

I wanted to print only Black, and would not let me, because I did not have any ink in one of my cyan cartridges. Go figure.

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. .


IF YOU ARE USING GENERIC CARTRIDGES, MAYBE IT WOULD BE BETTER IF YOU DISABLE THE INK MONITOR.

This is the only advice I can give you.


The next step would be to disassemble the Epson, and clean the Pads/Heads. Click on link below.:

I located a page on http://www.fixyourownprinter.com forum, which had plenty of details about similar issues.

If you find this helpful, pls rate me.

Thanks and Good Luck :0)

Apparently cleaning with a wet towel or wet wipe is needed.

Don't be tricked into downloading antivirus software from some web sites that are actually malicious.

Example of cleaning suggestions:

"Before you buy a new one. Clean the rolls and ink holder in the printer with a wet wipe or wet cloth. Start it without the ink cart, it should then ask you to insert it. Insert it then and it will go through the new ink routine. I did that twice and it fix the error.
It seem like one of the nozzle might be clog up and clean and forcing the printer to push more ink out will clear the clog."

Ho do you reset the ink levels on an Epson WF-4630 (T7861)?


Ink levels are set by chips on the ink carts. You may be able to reset the chips with a "chip resetter", but that's not really recommended. Get refillable carts with automatic resetting chips...

How do I fix error code 0x97 on Epson printer


0x97 is a scanner circuit board error. You can reset your printer by unplugging it from the wall for a few minutes, and then trying again. Unplug is not the same as "turn off". Other than that, service center is your only answer.

MY EPSON WF-4630 PRINTER IS STUCK ON oxf4 AND WE CAN'T CLEAR IT. WHAT DO WE DO??


If you are lucky, the 0xF4 error indicates a foreign object (a scrap of paper) in the gears. That would translate to PF driver mechanism overload. Another cause would be a contaminated encoder scale. Fixing either of these will require you to disassemble the printer. Here are some tips for taking apart the printer: https://www.ifixit.com/Guide/Repairing+EPSON+B-510DN+Error+0xF2+or+0xF3/11767 .

However, the 0xF4 error could mean that the encoder board or the motor have failed. These errors can only be fixed by a service technician. If your printer is under warranty, you should call for service. Otherwise decide if you want to risk taking it apart and finding that you can't fix this error. It may be cheaper to replace the unit.

I hope this helps.

How to resolve error 0x97 on Epson WF-3640?


First, here's a copy of the manual:
https://files.support.epson.com/docid/cpd4/cpd40083.pdf

Second, attempt the following which I copied this answer from another post concerning the same error code:
"The problem is waste ink around head sprayer (at (bottom plate of head). Turn of printer. Move head to center. Put wet tissue (with hot water) at head cleaning mechanic pad. Move head to parking position. wait till 10 minutes. check it. You can repeat 3 times." (Post by Anjazmoro Wicaksono)

If that does not work, are you able to open the printer and look for anything that may be blocking proper function?

On an Epson WF-4630, what does error code 0x97 mean and how do I correct it?


I am on my second printer with the error. Epson explained it is a motherboard failure. The error is not caused by a PC or the software on it. Instead, this is a printer hardware failure.

After exchanging the printer, the replacement printer has now dies from the same error. The problem starts as blurry printing and progresses to the full hardware failure. Once the Hardware fails and you get the error code, there is nothing an end user can do. The motherboard needs to be replaced.

My printers were working fine up until I swapped out the factory cartridges that shipped with the printer. In both of my cases, there were no issues or symptoms until I started using the Epson XL cartridges. As soon as I installed those, the symptoms started to show. Within a couple of months after swapping in the XL cartridges, the motherboard dies.

Options:
1) Call Epson and complain, make them log the details even if it is out of warranty. This helps establish the pattern and knowledge of the issue.
2) Swap printer if under warranty. They may want a credit card to charge in case they do not receive the bad printer back. Just resend it in the box the replacement came in. Epson supplies shipping labels and covers the shipping costs.
