Epson SX130 not recognising Tesco ink cartridges?

Hi, My friend's Epson SX130 printer will not recognise any of the Tesco ink cartridges, please can I ask why this is and is there anything I can do about it for him? Thank you.

I guess the obvious answer is to take them back. I've never seen Tesco cartridges. If it works with other brands then you have your answer.

I've never had a problem with Tesco cartridges. Assuming that he has the right cartridges (it's easy to get the wrong ones) then suggest that they are taken back.

Well it did used to be fine with the Tesco brand you see. I have tried the black cartridge from my own similar epson SX105 and mthe SX130 wont recognise those either?

I'm not 100% that you can just remove and replace (as in put it back or try in another printer) a chipped cartridge.

I suspect if Tesco are like other "supermarket own brands" then they could well be Jettecs' which are very distinctive.

But the same applies... take 'em back.

Before taking them back try cleaning the chip gently with a microfibre cloth, it usually works for me, even if I have to take the cartridge out several times
