Thank you but it seems to be OK now. After trying numerous times I took out the cartridge yet again and pushed it back down very hard and it seems to have done the trick! I did wet the end with my finger, which a friend of mine told me to do. I then followed instructions in the manual (which I had previously tried unsuccessfully) and this time it worked. Hopefully it will now print with no further problems.

Thank you for enquiring again.

    Cartridge error 1203


    First of all, please verify each cartridge carrier has an ink cartridge :
    1. Check to make sure the left cartridge carrier contains a black or photo ink cartridge.
    2. Check to make sure the right carrier contains a color ink cartridge.
    3. Remove each cartridge and examine it to make sure the protective tape has been removed from the contacts and the print head.
    4. Replace each cartridge in the proper carrier.
    Step 2 :

    Wicking the cartridges and cleaning the contacts on the back of the cartridge should be performed if the nozzle clean was performed and the quality was not satisfactory.
    Wicking the Cartridge
    1. Ensure the printer is powered on.
    2. Lift the scanner unit.
    3. Open the cartridge latches and remove the cartridges from the carrier (Figure 1).
    4. cartout922%281%29.jpg
      Figure 1: Removing the Cartridges from the Printer
    5. Take a clean, damp cloth and wipe the nozzle of the print cartridge from front to back (Figure 2).
    6. printer1.jpg
      Figure 2: Proper Cleaning Direction
      new_note.jpg Note: Never wipe the cartridges from side to side, as this causes cross-contamination in color cartridges.
    Cleaning the Contacts
    1. Turn the cartridge so that you are looking at the contacts on the back side of the cartridge (Figure 3).
    2. cartridge_back_contacts.jpg
      Figure 3: Turning the Cartridge To View the Back Contacts
    3. Using a clean dry cloth, wipe the contacts in the direction shown (Figure 4), so that no dust or other contaminants are visible.
    4. new_note.jpg Note: Do not use the same cloth that was used to clean the cartridge nozzles. This may cause more contamination on the cartridge.

    5. Clean the contact inside the printer with the dry cloth used to clean the cartridge contacts.
    6. Replace the cartridges in the carrier and close the scanner unit.
    7. Print the document again.
    8. If the print quality does not improve, repeat the steps for cleaning the nozzles and contacts up to two more times as needed.

    Error Code


    That's absolutely correct. The exact error message on the printer says "Ink System Failure. Error 0xc05d0281."You need a new printer for that kind of error. Actually there 3 different errors that you may encounter when installing brand new ink cartridges. The error that starts with 0xc18 and 0xc19, we can still recover the printer for that but only once. If the T/S is already done and was not able to resolve the problem, then that's the time that the printer needs to be replaced. For error 0xc05, ther only solution is to replace the printer. It means that the ink system has already been failed and cannot be recovered.

    What is error 0xc18a010a on for the 8250 hp printer


    If you are not using HP ink cartridges you may have trouble. I was using Rapid Refill cartridges and had the same problem. I returned them and was told that a new chip has been installed in hp cartridges, so you need to make sure that the cartridges have this chip. Rapid Refill set me up and have not had any problems since.

    Cartridge stall


    There could be 4 possibilities.

    1. Ink cartridges lids are open which is not allowing cartridges to move freely.
    2. Ink cartridges carriage will not move from its original position(left) when front cover is opened
    3. Encoder strip is Dirty.
    4. Encoder strip is Out of position.

    Solution:
    1. Open the front cover and check if ink cartridges lids are properly snapped in.

    2. Turn the printer off and pull out the power cable from power socket, open the front cover and manually center the ink cartridges carriage.
    Clean the metallic rod inside the printer using WD40 or Kleenex from Left corner to right corner properly.

    3. Cleaning the encoder strip:
    a. printer should be off and disconnected from power.
    b. open the front cover.
    c. Using a dry, lint free cloth, pinch the encoder strip on the right-hand side of the cartridge carriage and pull your fingers across it toward the right-hand side of the printer and you can move the cartridges carriage to clean the strip completely.
    d. Note: The encoder strip is a narrow band of clear plastic and can be difficult to see without direct lighting running parallel to metallic rod.
    e. Close the printer and try again to print.

    4. Repositioning the Encoder strip.
    a. Remove the power cord from the printer.
    b. Open the front cover.
    c. Gently slide the ink cartridge carrier to the middle of the printer.
    d. Gently move the top part of the printer belt to the right.
    e. Using an index finger, gently push encoder strip down and then back up, to get it back into the slot located on the back of the ink cartridge carrier.
    f. Gently press the strip first to the rear, and then forward, to ensure that it is seated correctly.
    g. Manually move the ink cartridge carrier to the left, then to the right, to check the positioning of the encoder strip.
    h. Once the encoder strip has been re-seated, close the scanner lid.
    i. Re-connect the power cord to the printer and try again to print.
