Hello

This error indicates that the printer is not able to detect a compatible cartridge.

As you bought non-original cartridges, it clearly signifies that the cartridges are defective. You need to return them to the ebay seller and you will get full refund by Ebay buyer protection.

Then buy original Epson cartridges and you should be all set

Feel free to ask any question or concern you may have. I will be glad to help you.
