I just put a genuine Epson ink cartridge in my Stylus Photo R2000 and got the message "Ink cartridge cannot be recognized". I took it out and reinserted it twice but get the same message. I've always used genuine Epson cartridges and this has never happened before. Are there any fixes? Any info is much appreciated.

Is it just one color or a complete new set ? I would contact the supplier with this problem; he will probably ask if you are doing firmware updates on the printer.

I actually changed two cartridges--red and yellow. The red presented no problems, only the yellow. I wasn't doing a firmware update. I've changed hundreds of cartridges in this printer without incident. Maybe it's just a bad cartridge or has a bad chip. I've ordered a couple of yellow cartridges. Hopefully, they'll work. Thanks for your help--much appreciated.
