Pop up says my NEW HP black ink cart. low on ink

I ran out of black ink, bought a new HP-brand black ink cartridge, installed successfully, it prints fine now. Only problem, I still get a pop-up message every time I try to print that says "The black ink cartridge is low on ink". I know the black cartridge is full (it's new and prints well). Have already aligned, cleaned, reinstalled the cartridge several times, to no avail. How do I reset this message, or how can I disable the ink-level warning completely? I previously replaced the color cartridge and did not have this problem. Thanks!

    Yes! I have the exact same problem! I have a older HP Deskjet 3845 printer and I just replaced both the color AND the black ink cartridges. The pop up keeps telling me that my black in is still low, and shows a picture of a cartridge with hardly any ink in it. The picture of the color cartridge shows fuller than it was before but never completely full even though I installed a completely full, brand new cartridge. I just bought these cartridges from Staples for about $30 and I KNOW they are new and not recycled refilled cartridges. How can we fix this problem? How will I know when these cartridges are actually running low next time? I don't want to just wait til it runs out! I may be working on something important and I don't want to wait until it's too late! HELP!

SOURCE: HP 6310 printer says HP 95 tricolor is empty.

Ray,
It sounds like you need to replace the cartridge with a new one. The electronics may have went out. We see this usually during the winter months when the static electricity in the air is high and we shock the cartridge. I would also NOT recommend cleaning the head/jets of the cartridge with alcohol. The electronics are fine to clean with alcohol both inside the printer and on the c artridge, but the head will dry out. We recommend taking a damp warm wet paper towel, placing it on a protected surface, and placing the head of the cartridge on the paper towel until you see some ink appear. Then put it back in your printer and let the printer clean off the bottom. If the printer is not cleaning off the bottom of the cartridge, the printer cartridge wiper on the carriage may be broken or stuck.

SOURCE: hp psc 750 won't print with new color ink cartridge

To solve the printing problem..


# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
# Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
# Continue doing this until it looks clean.
# Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
# Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.

1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.

# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer.

Printer won't recognize ink cartridge


you can try by cleaning the copper contacts on the cart .. and if it works fine with the old cart i.e if it doesnt gives any error with the old ones then possibly the problem might be with the new cart..

Error message reads: left cartridge incorrect.


hello there :

this error refers to the black ink cart not being detected . 

possible the new cart has a some fault on it ., u can confirm it by checkin for any defetc , leak on the cart itself or test the printer with another black cart , (if u hav one ).

*if the old black cart is still detected by the printer though the ink is low ...then jus call dell tech support ., with the order # for ur purchase and the cart replaced .

each dell cart u buy has 2 yrs warranty on them .so use them 

hav a gooday !

Even with out the Black cartridge installed the X1240 should use the color cart to make a "composite" black. I would suggest calling Technical support to troubleshoot that issue ad get you to test the cart itself

Black ink cartridge ran out. i replaced it with an identical one and the printer keeps saying incorrect colour cartridge installed. the colour cartridge was already in and working


Either:
  • You have bought the wrong cartridge
  • The cartridge is not a genuine one and it is faulty(about 30% of some non branded carts are faulty)
  • The cartridge is a genuine one and is faulty (about 1% of genuine carts are faulty)
  • The cartridge cradle is faulty and can not read the cartridge chip properly.
i suggest you by another (genuine) cartridge and try it. If it works, you know the other "new" cartridge is faulty and can return if for a refund.

Dell A960 AOI Printer problem


Have you reset the ink levels for your printer? Some printer software refers to it as that others ask if you have installed a new cartridge.

 

Do maintenance on the printer, such as clean heads, print test page, head alingment, etc and see if that fixes it. You can get to all these options through properties

HP Deskjet 950C - trouble loading ink cartridges


1st thing would be to remove the cartridge & check for any damage to the copper contacts as these are what tell the printer that a new cart has been installed. Next make sure you removed the tape covering the nozzles (I've done this before & boy do you feel silly).

If this all looks OK then pull the power out while the cart is still not fitted (this will fully reset the printer).

Once it comes back up, try fitting the cart again also checking that the contacts in the cartridge holder are not damaged/dirty.

This should sort the problem

Cheers
Shaun
