Question about Printers & Copiers

3 Answers

When attempting to print an email document, I receive a message: "an ink cartridge is not installed properly. Open cover and check cartridges for proper install." I did that and even removed both and reinstalled them. Recieved same result. I cannot get past this proplem. My printer is an iP1600, serial number FCWD10959. Incidentally, I didn't touch either cartridge since my last successful print out which was 3 days ago. So I can't understand what is different now. Thank you for your assistance. Robert Tomasso

You can still print a regular document right? becuase if the problem here is only printing via email or via the internet so the problem here is not with your printer, first thing to try is to print an email message using another internte browser like Firefox and check if you will be able to print...

Hope that helps.........

Have you tried purchasing replacement cartridges? You can also clean the contacts with a cue tip and alcohol. I would try in that order. If you still have trouble let me know. If you have a moment to accept and rate my solution I would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks,
Lee

    Also how long have you owned the printer?

    I am assuming this is happening all the time when you print? Also it is definitely not a paper related problem. If you still need any assistance let me know. If you found any of my information helpful then please accept and rate the solution accordingly.
    Thanks,

Check to see if the toner cartridge is empty or low. The printer warning should indicate this. Swap it for a new one and the unit should work.

Check the paper flag sensor and make sure it is not missing or misaligned (refer to your printer manual for its location.) If error persists, you’ll need to take your printer in for repair. If the paper wrinkles on the end, you probably have a bad paper out assembly. You might try to clean the inside (especially the rear rollers) and replace the paper. If the paper still wrinkles, the paper out assembly is most likely bad. Sometimes a bad fuser can cause the same problem so don't rule this out.

My printer is not recognising the replacement ink cartridge although I've used these before many times


If you have just installed a new cartridge and you still see an ink related error, the cartridge may be incorrectly installed. Follow these steps to make sure the cartridges are correctly installed:

  1. Make sure the Epson Stylus is turned on.


  2. Do one of the following:

    • If your printer indicates that an ink cartridge is expended, press OK.


    • If your printer does not indicate that any ink cartridge is expended, press Setup, select Maintenace, and press OK. Then select Change Ink Cartridge and press OK.
  3. Open the scanner.


  4. Open the cartridge cover.

    Caution:

    Never attempt to open the cartridge cover while the print head is moving; wait until the cartridges have moved to the replacement position.

    To avoid damaging the Epson Stylus, never move the print head by hand.


  5. Press down all the ink cartridges until they click into place to make sure they are properly seated.

    Note:

    If a cartridge is properly seated already, you may not hear a click.


  6. Close the cartridge cover and press it until it clicks into place.


  7. Close the scanner.


  8. Press OK to begin charging the ink. This takes about 2 minutes.

    You see a message on the display screen when ink charging is finished.

    Caution:

    Never turn off the Epson Stylus while the ink is charging or you'll waste ink.
If the issue persists, it appears to be an issue with the cartridge(s). Contact Epson for further assistance.

Ink Cartridge in Canon iP 1300 is not recognised by the Printer. It is showing the following error message "An error occurred.Some ink cartridges cannot be recognized." and a message box is...


All of the newer printers have ink tanks that are 'chipped out', meaining that you can't just refill a tank with a syringe like in the olden days. If the printer reads the 'chip' on that tank and it says it's empty - it won't work even though there is ink in it.
Some refill places just put ink back into used tanks, but DO NOT have a chip re-setter, so the printer does not either: 1) recognize the tank, or 2) thinks it is still empty.
I have had very, very good luck with an on-line company called ABCINK.com for my Canon MX700. A five pack ( 2 Black carts. and one each of cyan, magenta and yellow) costs me only $18.95 delivered w/shipping. Genuine CANON carts. would have been almost $100.
Your Canon 300 is older than dirt. I know, I had one. Try another ink tank or attempt to CLEAN the print heads and nozzles. But really, I bought one of these old dinosaurs for $30 bucks 10 years ago, so you may want toss this 'boat anchor', because as soon as you, and if you, can get it back up and running - something else will fail.
Go drop $60 on a brand new 4-in-one printer that scans in documents & pictures, can scan in a printed page and convert it to a Word doc using OCR (Optical Character Recognition), makes copies, prints from your computer and has an Automatic Document Feeder and Reader so that you can load up 50 pages to copy, scan or whatever. (Also, it might be time to replace that old Penty 3 processor. FWM, Freekin' Wal-Mart has some ****-Jimdy 15.6 laptops for $325 - $350 out the door with tax and a whole ONE year warranty.)
DO NOT BUY A H-*** MACHINE. THEY ARE JUNK. THEY ALL OVERHEAT & JUST RECENTLY THEY QUIT MAKING THEM. REMEMBER THAT COMCRAP (COMPAQ) GOT BOUGHT BY H-***, SO NO **** FROM COMCRAP EITHER.)

Have an HP PSC 1510 printer. I put in a new genuine HP Tri-Color (93) printer cartridge as I usually do and the "Check Printer" cartridge started flashing. Also flashing on the printer is the...


Problem After you install a print cartridge, one of the following messages appears on the color graphics display:
  • Incorrect Print Cartridge
  • Incompatible Print Cartridge
  • Problem with the Print Cartridge
  • Remove and Check [color / black or photo] Cartridge
  • [Tri-color / Black or Photo] Print Cartridge Inserted Now is Not Intended for Use in This Printer

NOTE: In the procedures below, the "problem" cartridge is the one identified by the message on the color graphics display. If the message does not specify a cartridge, perform the procedures on both cartridges. Step 1: Remove, inspect, and reseat the problem cartridge The print cartridge may not have full electrical contact with the printer. Removing and reinstalling the cartridge may help.
NOTE: HP cannot guarantee the quality of remanufactured or refilled cartridges.
  1. Make sure the printer is on. Press the Power button if it is not lit.
  2. Open the printer cover, then wait until the print cartridge carriage is idle and silent.
  3. Press down lightly on the end of the problem cartridge to release it. Figure 1: Removing the tri-color cartridge
  4. Slide the cartridge out and inspect it:
    CAUTION: Do not touch the copper electrical contacts or the ink nozzles. Figure 2: Electrical contacts and nozzlesc00211537.gif 1 - Copper electrical contacts 2 - Nozzles
    • Check the electrical contacts for debris.
    • Make sure all the clear nozzle protective tape has been removed.
      CAUTION: Do not attempt to remove the copper electrical strip! Figure 3: Removing the clear nozzle protective tape
    • Look at the number on the print cartridge label and make sure it is compatible with your printer. Compatible print cartridges are listed in the Printer Reference Guide supplied with your printer.
  5. If the cartridge is compatible, reinstall it in the printer:
    • Cartridges marked with a triangle go into the left carriage slot.
    • Cartridges marked with a square or pentagon go into the right carriage slot.

Step 2: Clean the problem cartridge contacts
  1. Gather the following items to clean the cartridge and carriage:
    • Clean distilled water. Use bottled or filtered water if distilled water is not available. Tap water can contain contaminants that damage the cartridge.
    • Clean cotton swabs or any soft, lint-free material that will not stick to the cartridges (coffee filters work well).
    • Sheets of paper or a paper towel to rest the cartridge on during cleaning.
  2. Open the product cover and wait until the carriage is idle and silent.
  3. Remove the cartridge and place it on a piece of paper with the nozzle plate facing up.
    NOTE: Clean the contacts quickly so that the cartridge is not outside of the product for more than 30 minutes. If the cartridge is outside of the product for too long, the ink can dry and clog the nozzles.
  4. Unplug the product from the electrical outlet.
  5. Dip a swab in the clean water and squeeze it to remove most of the moisture. The swab should be only slightly damp.
  6. Clean the cartridge contacts.
    CAUTION: Do not touch the ink nozzles.
  7. Clean the contacts in the carriage, inside the product.
  8. Either let the cartridge sit for 10 minutes to allow the cleaned area to dry, or use a new swab to dry it.
  9. Reinstall the cartridge.
  10. Reconnect the product to the electrical outlet.
  11. Close the product cover.
Step 3: Repeat reseating and cleaning steps If the problem is not solved, repeat the reseating and cleaning procedures above.

Call HP if the cartridge is covered under warranty to replace the cartridge
