Default Printer wont recognize OEM cartridges..help!!

I installed new OEM print cartridges in Epson Stylus Photo r1800,, however the printer wont recognize any of the cartridges. Status print monitor says Cartridges cannot be recognized. I can understand doing this with 3rd party cartridges, but these are Epson OEM cartridges. I tried with unplugging the power, but still the same message "Cannot recognize ink cartridges".. I need help!!

I am thinking,,, may possibly I got duped by the seller who sold me the cartridges as OEM cartridges on Ebay!
They all carry the Epson labels and Epson packaging.

Boguslaw,, what is CSIC ? not familiar with the term,,

It might possible that the cartridges you bought is loose when you install it.

It happens sometimes with my reffiable cartridge. Maybe add some space when you install the cartridges.

The board which reads the chips (the one that has wire spring connectors to toich the chip. This part does tend to brake same time (not to common but happens). I've seen it brake couple of times on R2000.

Default Re: Printer wont recognize OEM cartridges..help!!

Ok,, now what I did is reinstalled all the cartridges and switched to sheet mod, at that time both paper feed and ink lights came on. Second what I did is switched the PE switch back to Roll mode, at this point only the paper feed red light flashes, also at start up the PF motor still advances the tray.. what should be my next move?

I had to put little tabs behind each of the print cartridges to make them fit snug in the carriage against chip board reading the cartridges, therefor the printer could not read them and problem was solved..
