What to do if Epson cannot recognize ink cartridge?
Please attempt the troubleshooting steps below if epson printer won't recognize ink cartridge.
With the printer turned on, remove the cartridges from the machine. If you need to follow screen directions to change a cartridge, do so; otherwise, you should be able to simply remove the lid or click a specified button to get your carriage to slide across.
Wait a minute or two after disconnecting your printer from the mains (removing the plug from the wall).
Wait for your printer to calm down and notify you about a missing cartridge before turning it back on.
Individually reinstall the cartridges.
