A960 All in One Printer not working with color cartridge

My color ink was running low and when I finally received my new color ink cartridge, I changed to the new one. It did not work. So I sent it back to the company, received a new one, and it did not work. I ordered from a different company (remanufactured), and it did not work. (I have ordered from them before and they have been fine). I have run the nozzle clean, alignment page, etc. Nothing works. I have also cleaned to pad with windex and colors are coming out on the paper towel. However, when I try to print the black comes out fine, but the color cartridge does not print any color! This is our business computer, and we are needing it to continue working in our business ASAP! HELP! I'm not for sure what else to try, as to get this to work. Thanks,
Jbest

    Replaced black ink cartridge thinking it was empty, but bought a new one on-line. It didn't work, so I bought yet another one at Office Max and it also does not work. Very frustrating as the cartridges run almost $30 a pop! Will try the inkjet oasis solution posted, hope it works!

My new black ink cartridge wasn't working at all. I sprayed the cartridge with windex and let soak for a minute. I wiped dry with paper towel and there was black ink on my towel unlike before. The windex unclogged it and it worked like new!

On the Properties menu on the Quality/Copies tab there is a small box in the lower right that says:

"Print Color images in Black and White". Make sure that the box is NOT checked.

How to clean ink absorber for canon mp237


First of all open the ink cartridge of your printer.
When the ink cartridge would move all the way over, then disconnect the power cord of your printer.
Now pull the frame of rubber from the printer and remove ink pads.
To clean ink pads you may place them in a bowl having warm water and start rubbing and squeezing them to clean it from ink.
After removal of ink, keep the pads separate for dry.
When the pads get dry completely, place them back in rubber frame.
Reinstall the rubber frame in your printer.

HP printer psc 2210 all in one


Chances are that you didn't lock down the scanner when you moved the unit. You can attempt to open the unit and move the scanner bar manually to reset it. HPs are very difficult beasts when it comes to their power up check out. It must be fully functional...including all cartridges...to work in most cases. Good luck.

Printer won't recognize cartridge


I had the same problem. I'm not sure but I think I replaced the cartridges when the printer was on because I turned the printer off and removed one of the cartridges. When I turned the printer back on it recognized that cartridge but not the others. I turned the printer off again, rmoved all cartiridges and put them back in when the printer was still off. When I turned the printer on again I had no problems. So...try turning off the printer, rmove all cartridges, then put them back in and restart printer. Hope this works for you .
