TRY THIS FIRST!!!! it is the easiest and works everytime for me. Just unplugg it. I read somewhere, probably here, to do this. Actually pull the power plug out, not just turn off. I also took out the connnection plug to the computer for extra measues. Wait a few minutes then plug everything back in and turn on. It is like a computer rebooting. The printer will reinitalize itself and do a systems check. All the cartridges were recognized and the inkloads were correct. Had the same problem when I change the Black. Unplugged everything, and then perfect. I really like this multi function printer. it is the best for the money, cartridges are individual and cheaper then others. So if I need to just unplug every now and then not a big deal.

oh, I have always only used Brother cartridges, so I do not think it is cartridge problem. Before doing the tape just try this first. Wish I would have known about this solution with my previous one which obviously I threw away and did not have to.

Dell 3100n keeps saying "Change Black Toner" even


Before installing a new toner, put a disposable towel over the ink toner exit, and shake your toner lightly back and forth and up and down. Make sure your toner cartridge is in the open position before replacing it in your printer.

If you are using a refillable ink cartridge, make sure you are resetting the cartridge using the method described by the refillable manufacturer.

If this does not answer your question please request more information before voting on my answer. I will try to find more information about your toner cartridge that will help you futher.

Office jet 5510 keeps saying wrong black cartridge.


Look on the right side where the cartridge goes, if the spring on the right is hanging loose it might have poked a hole in the ribbon cable at the rear near the contacts. If so it's time for a new printer, if OK, check the exp. date on the ink cartridge and if it's been refilled or a generic ink you may just need another one.

Replaced black ink cartridge and printer keeps asking to replace


The message that persists in saying to "replace black cartridge" could be due to a defective cartridge chip. The chip maintains counts and tells the printer when a new cartridge is installed. If you cartridge is remanufactured, they may have neglected to install a new chip.

Regarding the new fuser not working, I'll have to get back to you on that.

Ink Cartridge Error


on your cartridges there is a chip that detects if the ink is low. The chip on your yellow cartridge is bad. You should return the cartridge for a new one(if you still have your receipt) or visit a Cartridge World in your area and they can put a new chip on for you
