Help! I forgot how to get the Epson NX400 printer to recognize the kopykake cartridges. After I inserted the cartridges, I just get a message. How do I bypass this message and get the printer to work?

Thank you!!!! icon_cry.gif

I've had that happen when I've refilled my KopyKake cartridges before GRRRRRRR!!!!!! I know how frustrated you are. I've used a small thin needle and pierced that little button on top of the cartridges and had that work and then had it not help. I hope someone can give you a sure fire fix I can't wait to change systems I have the NX200 Epson. I'm hoping I'll be able to get that system from icingimages for my birthday. I've been very impressed with icingimages customer service.

Thank you so much for your kind words! You dont have too long to wait for your birthday. If someone orders from you, make sure they mention you came from CC. We try to give extra items to CC people when we can!

Mine has been sitting on the counter for over a year. Never did use it, Had so much trouble trying to get it to recognize the yellow cartridge, then once it did, it wouldn't recognize the other ones. What a waste of money. I've come so close to just throwing it in the garbage, but then I see everyone elses edible image cookies and how cool they look and I think maybe someday I'll get it to work!!!! It's soooo frustrating

For some reason with the Epson printers the little chips on the front of the cartridges can get messed up and burn out. There is a chip re-setter that you can buy but I had a hard time with it at first. It can burn out the chip if not used correctly. I apparently did not do that the first time I used it and burned up three chips. icon_mad.gif If you still have the original ink cartridges they have chips on the front. You can take them off and place them on the cartridge you are using and that may help. I have also been in a pinch and had to purchase the regular ink cartridges just to get those chips. Hopefully, I can get the system from icingimages soon. The Epson printer has worked well for me but it can be a pain.

Hi global, I am afraid if it has sat for a year, beyond the chip, you may have major clog issues and it may not work at all even if you get the chips reset. Ediblesupply, may have some info for you. He knows a lot about the epsons. I will email him and tell him to get on to see if he can help.
