Epson SX515W Printer, do you own one? If so read this. What inks are you using? Serious problems with certain inks. How many here have had this problem?


There have been several threads over the last year or so for this printer and judging by the heat received, many people have bought one. I bought mine well over a year ago and until recently was very happy with it. I had been using Jettec ink but a few weeks ago I started getting "Cartridge not recognised" errors and the print heads blocked up. Cleaning did nothing and searching the web it seems that a lot of people eventually get a similar problem if using compatibles. They are fine to start with but eventually (and mine took over a year) they block the print heads and you need to do a thorough clean with isopropanol and then resort back to genuine Epsons at huge cost. What make of inks are people using and have others had similar problems? Maybe we can find the brand of ink that works best with this printer through user feedback.
