Epson C70+ compatible cartridges not recognised...

Archived from groups: comp.periphs.printers (More info?)

Epson C70+ on XP SP2. Latest drivers from Epson's website. All original
cartridges were empty, so I bought a number of compatibles from eBay.
However, there seems to be a problem, tried to install them, and the only
one which is recognised is the black one, the CMY ones aren't.

Instructions that come with the cartridges say that if this happens, to
re-install them. However, I have been doing that all day, and none were
recognised.

Any further advice, before I contact the seller?

    Often this is due to contamination wher e mostly ink could have splashed
    onto the contact splines at the back of the ink well.

    I don't think that's the problem, it still recognises the original Epsons as
    being empty. Gave it a shot anyway and cleaned both cart and contacts, but
    didn't work.

    Nope, contact the seller... chances are the chips are either not
    compatible or mis-programmed, or both. Sometimes they aren't even in the
    correct position.

    *If* the printer report the cartrige isn't not Epson brand, then just tell
    the printer to GO AHEAD to continue then it should work.

    I would, only it just says "the following cartridge is not recognised,
    please re-install, Epson recommends genuine cartridges, blah blah", and the
    process repeats every time I re-install.
