Edible image printers - Page 2

post #16 of 23
Yeah, I usually had been able to get past the warning, by shutting down the printer, starting it back up, "reinstalling" the cartridges, and hoping for the best. Often what would happen would I would get one color to be recognized, then then another color would "X" out, and on down the line, until I'd gone through and "replaced" each color at least once. THEN it might print a sheet or two before shutting down on me again.
Last week, though, I tried all the usual tricks to get my printer to cooperate, and it just stubbornly refuses to do anything, so I think it's toast.

It's an Epson CX7400. I have the same model for my normal printing (a different unit though - just in case anyone was wondering!!) icon_smile.gif and it's finicky as well, but not nearly as much. It just annoys me because of the issue of one color going out, the whole printer stops. Such a design flaw.

Well, in defense of the printer, it was designed originally to work with Epson cartrdiges - not aftermarket and Epson makes its money on the ink therefore tries to stop people from using aftermarket inks. It could very well be the placement of the chips on the cartridge as well. If it is not perfect, it will not register. But I do not know that printer nor have I worked with that series as I got tried two different series and once I found what I was looking for, stopped as I broke too many printers and made them unusable. So...based on my backgroudn with Epsons, I would take the cartridges out, unplug the machine. Leave it off for 5 minutess or so. Plug it back in, allow the computer to tell you that the printer needs ink and follow the computers directions to install the tanks. Be sure that they are pressed in there well. Let me know how it works for you.

Oh...I am so sorry....it does work with it! It didnt for a while, but it does now. I apologize for that error. I still would recommend the others as I have not personally worked with it. I did check my database and we do have customers using it with out problem. Thank you for pointing that out!
