Epson and compatible cartridges

HI there

I have the epson r320 printer with absolutely no problem using non epson cartidges.

However bought one of the sx400 models and using the same make as I have always dont the protec orange ones and get issues - eg when doing the nozzle check, colours have huge gaps, even maintenance doesnt work

the printer is only just over a month old

any thoughts please, much aprpeciated

Could be a fault in the printer?

i got a new epson and from day 1 the prints had lines on them accross...its the only one ive had like that. Maybe it is faulty? ring epson direct as they were brilliant with me dad-replaced it right away.

cheers, I wasn't sure, but Amazon give a refund/replace service for items that are up to 60 days old, so I will take advantage of that and get another one...

I've used these protec cartridges before without any problem, so just wanted some thoughts on if anyone else had the issues


Make sure the cartridges are Generation 6.
I had same problems but with different printer, found out I had bought gen 5 cartridges not gen 6.
