    Same with my Brother MFC I've now put 3 brand new cartridges in but the machine won't detect any of them just stating no cartridge. I'm trying to put Magenta in.

Hp Designjet 500 not recognising ink cartridges. the ink carts were nowhere near empty but coming but the printer says replace bought new ones and put them in and the machine is not recognising them...


I've had that problem with unfinished cartridges showing up as empty. I imagine that it could be a bad cartridge as well but I hear and feel the ink when I shake the cartridge. Therefore the ink is there. I also have a problem with some inks. I find the HP inks work perfectly whereas other manufacturers' inks work on and off. I need a solution as well. Right now I have full cartridges that are not picked up by the Designjet sensor. Any idea?

How do you change the black cartridge in the printer epson stylus nx115


Here is the Link showing instructions below. If you find this helpful, pls rate me.

http://files.support.epson.com/htmldocs/nx110_/nx110_ug/wwhelp/wwhimpl/js/html/wwhelp.htm

Replace Ink Cartridges
Your Epson Stylus NX110 Series and its software will let you know when an ink cartridge is low or expended.
If ink is low, the ink light flashes. You can continue printing until a cartridge needs replacement.
If a cartridge is expended, the ink light stays on. You must replace the cartridge to be able to print.

Warning:
Keep ink cartridges out of the reach of children and do not drink the ink.
Note:
If you need to change a cartridge before it or any other cartridges are low or expended, run the Ink Cartridge Replacement utility.

You cannot print or copy when an ink cartridge is expended even if the other cartridges are not expended. Replace any expended cartridges before printing or copying.

Leave your old cartridges in the Epson Stylus NX110 Series until you are ready to
replace them to prevent the print head nozzles from drying out.
When an installed ink cartridge is more than six months old, you may need to replace it if your printouts do not look their best, even after cleaning and aligning the print head.
Follow the instructions in these sections to check and replace your ink cartridges:
Check Cartridge Status
Purchase Epson Cartridges
Replace Cartridges Using a Printer Software Utility
Remove and Install Cartridges

pls rate me. Thanks and Good Luck...

It will not print in black ink even though I put a new black ink cartridge into the machine


Hello sir, good day, If you cannot print black ink on paper even with new cartridge on the machine, the cradle is dirty, the thing that holds your ink cartridge.

The ink flow is from the cartridge to the cradle then to paper, check the cradle, for proper cleaning.

Kodak 5300 shows "color ink cartridge needs replacing",even with new cartridge,and new printhead..Ink level display shows color cartridge empty,and its brand new..


Try this one
Take out the inks and printhead
Leave the cartridge door open, then unplug the power cord from the back of the printer while the access door is open
Close the cartridge door once the cord is unplugged
Reconnect the powercord, turn on the printer, then your printer will look for your printhead "Printhead missing or not installed correctly..."
Then put everything back. make sure it will snap in to place. Then print a calibration page, then scan it. This is just over writing the error message.

Hi there please try this.

Error 1203 is an issue that occurs either when a cartridge is bad or the printer cartridge Slot is bad...

"E", doesnt print scan or copy


Ink has dried inside the printer.
Assuming the printhead is seperate from the cartridge, i would inject JR Inkjet flush into the old cartridge and put it back into the printer. Leave it to stand for an hour or two, then run several cleaning cycles.
Once the ink comes through (if it does) replace your new cartridge and clean again until the print quality is restored.
If this does not work. Then i expect a new printhead is required. (i would try the first suggestion repeatedly).
Ink cartridges should be replaced immediately if possible. and even if u need our technician support contact us at http://tinyurl.com/mtgjzz

Ink cartridge


The real problem is that the waste ink tank is nearly full

Correct code procedure for resetting the Canon MP370


Reset Waste Ink
1) Enter SERVICE MODE.
By pressing the black button

with the star (in a
head ?) above it, followed by
scan, copy, scan
2) Select TEST MODE (press right

arrow button 13 times).
3) Select [8] PRINTER TEST
4) It'll now say "- 8-2 +" press

the right arrow key once
to get "- 8-3 +" Hit ok.
5) Select 0. [INK COUNT].
6) Press the ok key.
7) It should return to showing

the "8:
Printer Test - 8-3 +"
8) Press the [Stop/Reset]key -

black key with triangle and
circle on it –
(returning to the state of 3)),
and then press the [ON/OFF]
key.

Good Luck and don't blame me if it
goes wrong !!!!

Now you can print again, but it has not solved your full ink-tank, that has to be solved in future.

Ink levels are not responding.


Did you buy a brand new or remanufactured/refilled cartridge? Some cartridges will show empty, even when full.

They want you to buy brand new, brand name ink!
