Good Afternoon Dana and Walker,
My printer (Epson Stylus Photo R2000) was tested last week and again last night with Epson OEM Cartridges – Without any problems.
The ‘Filling Procedure’ as per the Refillable Cartridge Instructions for Epson 1400/1430, R1900, R2000 & R2880 (Insert #106) was then followed. The numbers on the Refill Cartridges and the Epson OEM Cartridges were compared to see if they match (And they do).
Next, the whole set of IJM Cartridges were ‘repeatedly’ removed and the Power and USB Cables were disconnected. The Printer was left off overnight (‘Hard’ Reset). Then, the Printer’s Power Cord was plugged back in; the Printer was turned back on and the whole set of Refillable IJM Cartridges were re-inserted.
However [I]‘Without Fail’…
[/I]Both the Yellow (V6.2 1594R 27) and Magenta (V6.2 1593R 27) Cartridges are consistently ‘NOT Recognized’. This morning once again in desperation… I pulled another Yellow and Magenta Cartridge from my 2nd Set of IJM Cartridges – But ‘All to No Avail!’ Once again… The Yellow and Magenta Cartridges were not recognized.
The Chips on both sets of Yellow and Magenta Cartridges were of course inspected… And they are Clean, Flat, Secure and Un-damaged. It would therefore appear to me… That perhaps the four (4) Cartridges (2 Yellow and 2 Magenta) and/or their ‘respective’ Chips are defective – And in need of replacing?
Please advise. Thank-you!
