hi, my printer has suddenly stopped accepting non-epson printer cartridges(they are 'pro jet pj-et711), can anyone help me out please?

I tried non Epson cartridges T0711 etc and wasn't imppressed one little bit. One wasn't recognised ( yellow ) seemed to lock everything up. The printer kept saying non genuine cartridge fitted (just the yellow even though they were a set) and refused to work. In the end I went back to using Jettec's. Never had a problem with those. The first non originals I tried were "WOX", the second lot were unbranded, green boxes with no real name anywhere. Never again !!

Hi there, thanks for your answer, please could you tell me where you get the 'Jettec's' from? That would be most helpful, thankyou!!

The Jettecs have 90% more life than the Epson originals. Will put another link in to another thread.
