I recently changed the black ink cartridge on my epson R285 , but it did not charge , afterwards it told me all the inks needed changing , as they were not compatible , it worked fine before this although Im not using epson ink , can anyone help ?

Ive had exactly the same prob with my 285 a couple of times , here is what i did to resolve it. turn off printer, disconnect from mains (switching off is not enough), leave for a couple of minutes then reinstall cartridges. It worked for me.
Although now i have invested in a continous ink system which has worked flawlessly for months and is dirt cheap to run.
