Q. I installed new compatible Epson XP-342 ink cartridges (EPSON 29XL) in my Epson Epson XP-342 yesterday. However, the machine has been constantly showing the message that the cartridges need to be replaced even though they are new. I tried reinstalling them but since it’s not working, I doubt I got it right. Could you tell me how to go about it?
A.
Please take the cartridge out of your printer and switch the printer off from the main switch board for about 15 minutes. Turn the printer on, the ink cartridges again and try taking a printout now. If this doesn’t sort out the issue, you may contact the Epson Support for alternative solution.

Q. I recently purchased compatible Epson XP-342 ink cartridges but the printer is not accepting them and I’m unable to take printouts. I did everything I could and am exasperated now. I’m wondering why customers are recommended compatible ink cartridges now.Should I send them back and use original ink cartridges again?
A.
No, the issue you are facing has nothing do with choosing compatible ink cartridges; they are in no way inadequate when compared to their original counterpart. You need to identify the reason that is hampering your work. Try reinstalling once again.

Q. Is the quantity of ink available in genuine Epson XP-342 ink cartridges (EPSON 29XL) more than incompatible ink cartridges? Do genuine ink cartridges offer better VFM deal?
A.
Not at all. Compatible Epson XP-342 ink cartridges provide the same amount of ink as genuine ink cartridges do. Besides, the fact that compatible cartridges are far less expensive than genuine ink cartridges makes the former a more VFM deal ve4rsion.

Q. I bought a set of genuine Epson XP-342 ink cartridges some months back but could not use them. I believe the ink has started drying. What should I do?
A.
If ink cartridges sit in storage for a sizeable length of time, the ink does tend to start drying. If you can confirm whether that’s happened to your ink cartridges also, running an extended cleaning cycle is likely to help. Please read your printer's manual to know how the cleaning cycle can be performed on your machine. After you run the cleaning cycle, take a test page to conclude whether the printer will work properly.

Q. My Epson XP-342 printer has gone offline. The ink in the cartridge is about to get exhausted in it. Is that why the printer is in the offline mode?
A.
Yes, printers do go in the offline mode when the ink level becomes very low. Once you install new ink cartridges in your printer, the issue is most likely to be sorted. If it doesn’t, we’ll have to probe it further.

Q. There’s a strip of tape on the print nozzle of my Epson XP-342 ink cartridges that I bought. What am I supposed to do with it?
A.
The tape is affixed on the print nozzle of the ink cartridges to prevent ink from leaking out of it, which can happen while being transported or handled at the time of shipping. You need to remove the tape just before you insert the ink cartridges in the printer.

Q. How are compatible Epson XP-342 ink cartridges manufactured? What makes them at par with original ink cartridges and yet cost lesser?
A.
The compatible ink cartridges for Epson printers are made with recycled Epson cartridges. Quality wise as well as in terms of performance, Epson’s compatible cartridges are considered good enough in the market as direct replacement for Epson cartridges. No new material is incorporated in making these ink cartridges, so the cost is automatically cut down there.
