    Hello all.

    I have an ongoing problem with compatible carts on my R360. the display keeps showing that it doesn't recoqnise the L magenta cart, even after I replace it with a new one.

    Any ideas? I don't want to fork out for an original cart to see it do the same thing.

    Have you tried putting the old one back in to see if it recognises it (I know it'll be empty with ink), or try reseating the cartridge to make sure it's in properly. Sometimes they require some force to put them in.

    I've never used compatible cartridges myself.

    When did you purchase the R360, is it an early model or a recent one? There was I believe some alterations to the model since production of it began and some compatibles will not work with some of the models. If using an Epson Cartridge does not work then it is the printer at fault, as their cartridges will work with all versions of this R360 model . Not all compatibles do though, so you might just have to throw away the problem cartridge and get another one. :rolleyes:

    Yes I had heard that, funny enough.

    I'm sure I purchased mine before the 1st of March though.

    My local supplier reckons he'll be getting some new compatibles that are designed to work with later versions, but I can see more cash being wasted.
