Expert:  Michelle replied 1 year ago.

did you change all inks or just the black one

Expert:  Michelle replied 1 year ago.

also did you remove the blue tape from the ink cartridge before installing it

Expert:  Michelle replied 1 year ago.

the error 0xf1 is a fatal error indicating an internal fault with the printer. A reset usually clears the error if its something with the settings causing it.But we have already attempted the reset sequence and still the error is getting repeated

in such a case the fault seems to be an internal one and would need the printer to be serviced

you may contact Epson to get the same done

Expert:  Michelle replied 1 year ago.

i hope you understand that in case of hardware faults i can suggest cleaning and reset steps but cannot fix an internal fault requiring service
