In general, you have to buy the same number of the cartridge, otherwise your printer will give error message. in some cases, there are compatible cartridge that will work with your printer but you have to check  the cartridge box which indicate the model number of the printer. I hope this solve your issue

Having a hard time finding ink cartridges, can i refill them or get ideas of easier ways to find and deal with this new printer


you can refill cartridges your self ( very messy) or you can have them refilled professionally at a cartridge shop
go online as there are places like e-bay that sell cartridges or other specialist cartridge retailers that sell units
printers such as hp always say use only this brand of cartridge but if you find a good online ink retailer you will see that all cartridges are either made as specific or generic and only the name on the case is different
where you got the printer will have cartridges for it

Ink not coming through, havnt used it for bout 2 years, i have cheaked and there is ink there but its not come through when im trying to copy


Since you mention ink. The chances are that the printhead is clogged with dry ink. To attempt to clear the clogged head, you will have to remove the printhead (remove ink cartridges, remove printhead from carrier). Soak the printhead in a bath of warm (not hot) distilled water overnight. After the soaking of the printhead, dry the printhead with a clean lintfree cloth (dab the printhead carefully so you do not damage the printhead or electronic contacts). Reinstall the printhead and ink cartridges and test. You may have to do this a number of times depending upon the amount of dried ink.
The alternative is to buy a new printhead for the printer. If you want to go this direction, let me know the manufacturer and model of the printer and I can help you find a supplier.
Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks.

Installed new ink cartridges mx 300, compatible B&W 40, color 41, printer status still says low ink, printing as if it is low ink. properly installed, tape removed, what i miss? can I check something...


Do you know what?. As a matter of fact,it is not compatible cartridges you buy. It is refurbished cartridges that repackaged with other brand as if this is their product. I say it is original cartridges that once empty and repackaged. So that's why when you install the cartridge the ink level stays low. You can make it sure by comparing it with new original cartridge. Find original cartridge,may be you can borrow from someone,which ink level still full and install on your printer. I am a hundred percent sure ink level will show properly :).

I just got my ink cartridges refilled and when I put them in my computer says check ink UP051. Even when I took the ink out and tried restarting it, it gave me the same error message.


A number of printers simply will NOT work with "Refilled" ink cartridges. This is because some have a "Chip" inside them that will not allow this to be done. They want you to buy their ink.. and buy a new cartridge each time... SOME places that refill them are able to reset the chip. However "They" have us all by the "Goolies" and as much as you may hate it the best way is to buy a new recommended cartridges. Sux huh?

Printer ink cartridges contain ink but printer says not!


The chip on the cartridge tells the printer how much ink is left in the cartridge. If the chip says the cartridge is empty, it won't print no matter how much ink is left. That said I think you got refills that didn't get the chips reset or compatibles (non-Epson brand cartridge body) with poorly made chips that expired before they should have. You need to have all the cartridges installed with functioning chips to use your printer. You need to buy new cartridges of the ones your printer thinks are empty. I recommend Cartridge World for refills because they make a quality product that doesn't have these kind of "novice" refiller problems. I would never buy refills or compatibles off the internet because you get what you pay for.

Everytime I try to print , all i get is a a blank page


If you are using it on a MAC there are known issues.


If however it is a pc then maybe you should check your ink levels using the software that you installed with the printer.

Have you recently replaced the ink cartridges and if so did you use original HP cartridges ?

If you didn't use original cartridges then there is quite a good chance that they may be faulty and should be returned to where you purchased them for replacement.

If you did use original cartridges did you remove the tape on it before installing ?
Check by doing the cartridge replacement steps and take out any cartridge you may have replaced recently and check that the pull off tape tags are removed.

Refilled ink cartridges not recognizby printer.


I fixed the problem by using original Canon ink cartridges and not getting them refilled. Apparently their chemists put a chemical in all of their inks so that only their Canon printers will recognize. It's a guarded trade secret that no one else knows about, unless it was analized. Other ink manufacturers produce ink that looks exactly as Canon ink, but that's where the similiarities end.
