    After powering up the printer does it's thing than gives solid power(green) light and solid ink light.. Status Monitor shows empty
    ink carts. It keeps showing the same lights after attempting to replace the cartridges many times using refillable cartridges.. Could this be firmware issue, just got the printer second hand, have no know knowledge of history of this printer. Can anyone
    give me hands up on this??

    It seems firmware updates preclude use of refillable cartridges. Recommend Epson brand ink and cartridges.
    You can try one just for one-time test. Then you will know. Good Luck

    The latest:
    Bought a set of Epson OEM cartridges, still no go,, I installed all 6 carts just like the printer tells you how to..
    it showed all cartridges with the X.. I decided just to remove the yellow, pushed the ink button when carriage
    came to rest now it show all OK accept the yellow now got the X ... I don't think it's a firmware issue. I checked
    the yellow with my chip setter it cam up with the green light. Reinstalled the yellow, same ol thing..
