Good Afternoon Dana and Walker,
My printer [I](Epson Stylus Photo R2000)[/I] was tested last week and again last night with Epson OEM Cartridges – [I]Without any problems. [/I]
The ‘Filling Procedure’ as per the Refillable Cartridge Instructions for Epson 1400/1430, R1900, R2000 & R2880 [I](Insert #106[/I]) was then followed. The numbers on the Refill Cartridges and the Epson OEM [SIZE=1]Cartridges were compared to see if they match [I](And they do).
Next, the whole set of IJM Cartridges were [I]‘repeatedly’[/I] removed and the Power and USB Cables were disconnected. The Printer was left off overnight[I] (‘Hard’ Reset). [/I][I]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. [/I]
However [I]‘Without Fail’…
[/I]Both the [I][B]Yellow[/B][/I] [I]([B]V6.2 1594R 27[/B])[/I] and [I][B]Magenta[/B][/I] [I]([B]V6.2 1593R 27[/B]) [/I]Cartridges are consistently [I]‘NOT Recognized’. [/I]This morning once again in desperation… I pulled another Yellow and Magenta Cartridge from my [I]2nd Set of IJM Cartridges[/I] – [I]But ‘All to No Avail!’ [/I][I]Once again… The Yellow and Magenta Cartridges were not recognized. [/I]
The Chips on both sets of Yellow and Magenta Cartridges were of course inspected… [I]And they are Clean, Flat, Secure and Un-damaged.[/I] It would therefore appear to me… That perhaps the four[I] (4)[/I] Cartridges [I](2 Yellow and 2 Magenta)[/I] [I]and/or their ‘respective’ Chips are defective – And in need of replacing?[/I]
Please advise. [I][B]Thank-you! [/B][/I]
