How I troubleshoot these cartridges( Epson sx235w)
on 22 July 2016
These are not genuine Epson ink cartridges so don't expect them to work every time. Instead of buying one set off of Epson for £40 I choose to buy these and have done so for the past 4 years. Three sets of four will last me more than a year, possibly even 2 years.
Occasionally my printer will reject the cartridges even after they have been used for a while. It might say these are not genuine cartridges! It happens very rarely. In this instance I disconnect my internet and restart the printer, it should do the trick.
Alternatively you could try taking the cartridge out, putting it back in and switching the printer off and on again. You could try this a few times( Im a desperate student always trying to get my work in at the last minute). Finally if all else fails replace the cartridges, you haven't lost that much money.
You might get an error saying there is no ink in the cartridge when its full. You may have a blockage, just take the cartridge out and poke the hole with a pen, give it a good shake and try not to get any on yourself. They may dry up if not used in a while so you can do the same again.
If you have some strange colour coming out the printer or its not as clean as you would hope, remember to clean your printer! The Epson sx235w has an option for nozzle cleaning etc( Im assuming the other models have this basic feature too), so make sure you give it a good clean once in a while!( you may find you need to clean a few times in one go) It should help with any blockages in the nozzle head etc. ( To the guy saying the black colour is brown? its possible you haven't cleaned your printer and this will most likely happen. I had pages coming out pink once, I had to clean it at least 5 times, which uses up a lot of ink but has to be done).
Thats all for now, I have been using these methods for a long time now and they seem to be working. If you disconnect your printer from the internet, you will have to use a cable to print!
