New Choice Stationery ink-warning message!

  goforit 17:57 01 Jul 2008

I have been using Choice Stationery very happily for years on my Epson Stylus printer. But since I installed a new cartridge in a new design, I have been getting a boring notice telling me that the cartridge is not Epson's, may not print how I want, do I want to continue.

The annoying thing is that No is selected by default. I have never had this before. I once got an error message after I had installed it and it was trying to charge up but I took the cartridge out and put it back in a couple of times.

Any ideas?

Epson Stylus printer model?.

Printer manufacturers are getting more annoyed about selling their printers on the cheap, and their customers are then seeking to use 'compatibles' from other sources, so you will find that annoying messages are part and parcel of the deal.

I'm surprised that you didn't get that message before. My two Epsons have shown this message for years. Must admit it doesn't bother me much, I just ignore it. No idea why you get it now.

Hi "goforit"

This message has to come up legally on all non Epson cartridges, and as Spuds says im suprised you did not have this before.

The message has to come up once, when you install them and then thats it. So if you install a complete set of six it may come up six time. All you do is click ignore and it will go away.

6 Clicks on the mouse should make do for up to 85% saving on the Epson cartridge.

You could also try updating your printer driver from the Epson website, this may resolve it as well.

Any further problems feel free to email me direct - [email protected]

Many thanks everyone and thank you Paul. I will try and update my printer driver and see if that fixes the pesky notice from coming up every time.
