colour ink cartridge not recognized


You can bypass sometimes when the cartridge is just empty, but there's no bypass if not recognized. You can try using an eraser to wipe the contacts on the cartridge and inside the cartridge holder, but if that doesn't work you will need the new cartridge.

How to Reset an HP Inkjet Cartridge
Hi there
Instructions
Things You'll Need:
Adhesive tape

HP inkjet cartridge can be refilled easily, getting it to work again in the printer is another matter.
The contacts on the back of the cartridge are programmed to read the ink level, but they don't reset for the printer just because you add more ink.
You must get the printer to recognize the cartridge as new.
You can do this easily if you have two other old cartridges, or you can manipulate the contacts on the refilled cartridge.


Step 1
Insert the cartridge you refilled into the HP Printer.
Have the printer print an alignment page, thus recognizing the cartridge. The printer will still read the ink level as where it was before you refilled it.
Step 2
Remove the cartridge from the printer and replace it with another old cartridge.
Have the printer print an alignment page with this cartridge so it recognizes it as a different cartridge from the first one.
Step 3
Replace the second cartridge with a third one and run the same alignment page.
Because the printer only retains the memory of two Print Cartridges, it will erase the memory of the first (refilled) cartridge.
Step 4
Insert the refilled cartridge into the printer.
The printer will now recognize the cartridge as being full.

Next Steps
Step 1
Tape over the contact squares on the top left corner of the cartridge's contacts. Insert the cartridge into the printer and run an alignment page. Ignore any messages that might appear saying there is a problem with the cartridge.
Step 2
Take the cartridge out of the printer. Remove the tape from the left corner and tape over the contact squares on the top right corner. Place the cartridge backs in and run another alignment page.
Step 3
Remove and reinsert the cartridge, this time with no tape on any of the contacts. Check to see if the printer recognizes the cartridge as being full.
Step 4
Repeat the above steps if the cartridge is still shown as being empty.
This time, use the bottom corner contact squares instead of the top ones. If you are still unable to reset the cartridges, using multiple cartridges is likely the only way to do it.
jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); }); All I ask is to call back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one, so I will keep on helping.

yellow ink cartridge not recognized...


You probably cant. Try replacing the chip with one from an old empty cartridge of the same colour (using superglue or something), as the unrecognized chip is faulty and usually cant be fixed, and you should throw it away as soon as you take it off to avoid confusion. Now try to convince your local ink refill shop to reset the chip for you.maybe tell them your nephew bit the old chip off and ate it.
OR try the web to purchase a "chip resetter" device.

U150 canon pixma MP830 "the following inktank can not be recognized" magenta. Please help, Thanks, Ted


I have had this problem repeatedly lately. To try the Stop/Reset solution already mentioned, I turned on my infrequently used Canon Pixma MP830. Most of the time at a fresh startup it gives an alarm message "the following ink tank cannot be recognized" OR "there are two of the following ink tanks installed" ??! for the single black 8 cartridge !, a Canon original. Of course, tonight it started just fine, but the methods I have used when it does not work because of these alarms are the following:

I open the top, wait for the cartridge carrier to center, unsnap the black 8 cartridge, then snap it back in and close the top. This sometimes works if repeated until the machine recognizes it. Sometimes I unsnap all the cartridges and resnap them. If this doesn't work, I remove the black 8 entirely and use a clean cloth to wipe the electrical contacts of the cartridge in the direction of their length and reinstall. It sometimes takes a repeated combination of these steps and sometimes the two different alarm messages will appear alternately. There does not appear to be any logic to it. Once the machine does recognize it, it works just fine.

However, if the machine is turned off, many times when it is turned back on later I have to go through all this frustrating rigamarole again. I hope it is a glitch with this particular cartridge (fairly new) and not the machine. Next time I get the alarm messages I will definitely first try the Stop/Reset button solution suggestion, but I thought I'd add my two cents solution, which so far has eventually caused the machine to recognize the cartridge.
