Hi,
Try updating your printer drivers:

Create a new folder on your desktop and name it newhpdrivers(substitute your manufacturer in new name). Un-intall printer and printer software completely. Go to manufacturers website and navigate to their drivers/downloads or support menu. Select your model, choose the relevant software and download to the new folder you created on your desktop. Power down your computer. Reconnect the printer to the computer and turn printer on. Power on pc. Windows will detect new hardware and ask if you have the manufacturers install cd or a location to check for install files. Direct the wizard to your new software, follow the rest of the setup instructions and your done

I just put in new ink cartridges. It scans fine but will not print from my computer


Hi Karen:
If it worked before you installed this cartridge, there are 3 possibles that I would check.
1) The new cartridge is defective
2) The new cartridge is not installed correctly
3) The pull tab that covers the ink ports was not removed before the cartridge was installed.

Won't print dark enough


Forget buying a new toner cartridge and don't bother re-installing anything - This is a power supply problem - The electrolytic capacitors fade away after a few years of power on and the high voltage to the printing engine drops too low.I tried a new toner cartridge - no help - re-installed drivers - no help.If you can handle a soldering iron or know a friend who can, replace the following capacitors on the power supply board on the LHS (power cord side). Make sure you use low impedance 105 degree power supply types. Warning - high voltage !!! power cord out and wait 30 minutes before touching anything.
C374 341 503 529 (47uF/35V), C526 (1uf/50V), C506 (0.47uF/35V), C515 (100uf/50V). All the others tested fine in mine. Also make sure you install them the correct way around!
Now I have "black as black can be" prints just like new and I can set print density back to 2 not 5.
enjoy ;-)

I have the same problem but mine is with a canon mp190. also says E5 error on lcd and 2,114,0 eror when i try and scan. what can i do


According the Canon the error code means this:

E, 4/ E, 5 The FINE Cartridge cannot be recognized

The FINE Cartridge may not be installed properly, or the Cartridge may not be compatible with this machine. Open the Scanning Unit (Cover), and then make sure that the FINE Cartridges are installed properly and that the installed FINE cartridges are compatible with the machine.
If the error is not resolved, the Print Head may be damaged. Contact your Canon Service representative.
The "fine cartridge" means the black printing cartridge. The black should be installed on the left and the color on the right.

Double check to make sure your cartridges are installed on the correct sides.

After verifying that they are on the appropriate sides, then turn off your printer and unplug it from the power source.

Remove and reinstall the black cartridge.

Plug the printer back in and turn it on. If the error code is still there, press the menu button and scroll using the arrows until you see the "maintenance" area on your printers display. Then press enter or "ok". Continue scrolling until you find the "clean print heads" function and then again press enter or "ok" Follow the instructions and clean the print heads at least two times.

If the cartridge is full and installed correctly, the according to Canon the print heads have trapped old ink in them and this could be cloggin the ink flow. Cleaning the print heads should solve that problem. If you still get the error code after cleaning the print heads a couple times then I suggest contacting Canon for a possible warranty repair.

Good luck!

I have a Xerox 4150 printer, I install a new cartridge and get a message,"The toner cartridge is not for this machice, install the correct cartridge", I also want to add that want I took out the toner...


There are a couple of different cartridges for those machines. One is a "sold" the other "metered" if the cartridge part number is different it will give you that message.
Also remove the cartridge and shine a falshlight into the machine . Look all the way to the back and locate the springs, they make contact with the cartridge. Try gently stretching them to see if they area making good contact.
