I'm going mad, please help.
Situation
The printer worked well with original Epson cartridges.
After replacing empty cartridges with a third-party 603XL, the printer worked fine for a few minutes.
Then the message "Ink cartridges not recognized" appeared on the printer's display.
The printer is not connected to the PC.
What I've done
1. Printer Memory clearing -- Cartridges removed, turned off, power cable unplugged, rest for 15 minutes, turned on, turned off, cartridges reinstalled, printer turned on -- No Result.
2. Cartridge Chip resetting -- Reset all four cartridges with a chip resetter. The LED lit up briefly -- No Result.
3. Copper contacts -- On both the chip and in the printer they were clean, but cleaned nonetheless.
4. Consulted the Internet -- Not much wiser.
The message "not recognized" does not go away, remains and the printer refuses.
Memo
The empty original cartridges are unfortunately no longer available.
Also, the supplier of the third-party cartridges is no longer known, otherwise I would ask them. But attempts are being made to do so.
Please help, any advice is very welcome.

Since your 3rd party cartridges don't work you would need to buy a set of original Epson cartridges

Epson, Canon, HP... A "few"

If I were a betting man I'd suspect that the compatible cartridges had faulty chips and the seller has gone AWOL because they realised it was a problem.

Recommend trying another source of the cartridges that has feedback and other indications that show they actually have a working product.
