    Epson R220 Ink cartridges not recognized

    Epson R220 Ink cartridges not recognized 28th Sep 07 at 2:55 PM
    All of a sudden, my pc has stopped recognising the print cartridges in my epson r220. It's not just the monitoring, but it doesn't even try to print, even though there is ink in the cartridge. I've already tried the following:
    • pulling the cartridges out and re-installing them
    • deleting the printer and re-installing it
    • pulling the power plug from the printer and leaving it for a couple of mins before powering up again
    • installing the latest drivers
    I guess it's a software issue because everything was fine earlier. The cartridges aren't OEM, but that's never been a problem - I simply click on the relevant 'Next' button when installing replacement cartridges.

    Any suggestions welcome.
