I have just installed a full set of compatible cartridges for an Epson Stylus sx435w and it says cartridges not recognised. I have switched the printer off removed cartridges and then left it for awhile and reintalled cartridges and this still does not rectify the problem. I keep reading on the internet that there are alot of these problems but can't find an answer to the problem. Can anyone help me.
I'm currently using Jettec brand cartridges in an Epson SX445. Have used them for years in other Epson printers and find them trouble free. They are guaranteed and with a real "contactable" company behind them.
I tried other types in the early days and had numerous issues from poor printing to not being recognised.
Super market own brands (Morrison, Wilkinson and I think Asda) also appear to be the Jettec brand.
Epson had more than its fair share of not accepting compatibles, usually through 'chipping'. There was a number of ways of overcoming this, and that was then compatible suppliers began to offer extra warranties on their products.
Depending on what you paid for the compatibles, and whether its worth your time and effort. I would suggest that you contact the supplier for further advice or information, even though you now have a solution with JetTec cartridges.
