Hi Carolyn. Welcome to justanswer.

Epson printers does not accept the fake cartridges. But there are some tricks which we can try to bypass the error message. First remove the cartridges. Once you have removed the fake cartridges, turn the printer off. After 5 minutes, turn the printer back on. You will get the error message notifying about no ink cartridges. Press OK and then put the cartridges back and it will initialize the new cartridges. Check if it still gives the error.
