I have an Epson Stylus C66 printer. How can I override message to use original cart's. printer of late will not let me print using compatiable's

Im not sure as i pointed out in your other post,i use a Epson C44 and compatible cartidges,the only time i used Epson was when i first got the printer,it may be a feature of the model you have i have no idea,there are i think chips sets you can buy to unlock printers to use any inks but im not sure.If as you said its only the Black thats at fault it may be a dodgy cartridge,have you tried another black one?.

Have just bought Epson Original Cart and printer is working fine. The utility you mentioned which command do you use to be able to use compatiable.

There isnt a setting as such its just a program to allow you to do different things with the cartridges,i cant understand why you cant use compatable inks.It must have been a dodgy black cartridge.

I don't know about the C66 but I have Epson printers and use compatible cartridges in all of them. The only message I have ever had says something like: "this is not an original cartridge do you want to continue" I say Yes and it doesn't come up again until I change another cartridge.
