Check to see if the installed cartridge is the correct one for the printer. If the cartridge is the proper part number, remove the ink cartridge and make sure all the packaging tape has been removed from the copper circuitry strip on the backside of the cartridge. Reinsert the cartridge and try printing again.

If the error continues, remove the cartridge again and clean the copper circuitry strip on the backside of the cartridge, and the contacts inside the printer, by following the instructions below:

1. Use a clean, dry, soft, lint-free cloth. Locate the copper-colored circuitry strip on the back of the cartridge.

2. Wipe the copper-colored strip with the dry cloth. Use an upward motion, from the nozzle end to the top of the cartridge. Do not wipe the nozzle end of the cartridge or touch the nozzle plate. Wipe the contacts only once.

3. To clean the printer contacts, carefully look for fibers or contamination on the electrical contacts inside the carriage assembly, but do not wipe the printer contacts with any object. The contacts in the printer can be damaged if too much pressure is applied during a wiping process. Try to remove any visible attached debris within the carriage assembly by gently pulling the debris off with your fingers. If the carriage contacts show noticeable damage, contact the Customer Care Center listed in the printer's User's Guide.

Reinsert the cartridge and try printing again. If the error continues, the cartridge may need to be replaced.

Have a nice day and do not forget to rate please...!

DeskJet 460. Opening ink cart cover does not make cartridges slew to centre.


Hi

This is a problem with the ink cartridge. Maybe your cartridge is bad and needs to be replaced. But because the carriage is not moving you can turn off the printer and try to move it with hand it should move now. Once out of place try to remove both the cartridges and turn on the printer. Now when it says error then open the cover and the carriage will move to center and you can install the cartridges back in the printer and try.

How to replace catridges for Epson Stylus Office T40W??


Hi,

Good day. I hope this steps can help you in replacing your cartridges. This how i remember doing it. Just follow these steps.

>Make sure the power light is on, but not flashing.
>Open the printer cover and the output tray.
>Press the ink button. The ink cartridge holder moves to the ink cartridge check position and the
power light begins to flash.
>Press the ink button again. If more than one ink cartridge is expended or low, the ink cartridge holder moves to the mark.This
occurs each time you press the ink button until all expended or low ink cartridges have been
indicated. Once all of the expended or low ink cartridges have been indicated, the ink cartridge
holder
moves to the ink cartridge replacement position when you press the ink button. >Open the cartridge cover and place the ink cartridge into the cartridge holder with the bottom down.
Then push down the ink cartridge until it clicks into place. Then close the cartridge cover
>Press the ink button and then the printer moves the ink cartridge holder and begins charging the
ink delivery system

Hope this will help you a bit with your ink cartridge replacement problem. Have a great day.

I changed the black ink cartridge but the ink light keeps blinking as there was no ink and it also makes weird noises as is the cartridge try to move but can't


Hello,
you may have probably gotten a fake ink for your printer, because Hp printer will never work or print not until u put in a genuine ink from Hp. Try to purchase another genuine ink and see if the problem will occur again.
Thanks

NX400 printer - cartridge not positioned to change cartridge


The problem occurs when trying to change a low ink cartridge before you are prompted to do so. In that event, you must go to setup, maintenace, change cartridge and it will move the cartridge into position.Do not try to force the cartridge into position.

Lexmark x 1270 cartridge stall when about to print the cartridge would move to the left of printer and stall there.is there any way to fix the problem please and Thank you to any one who can help


Please follow the steps given below to install the cartridge:
1. Unplug all cables from the back of the printer.
2. Open the front cover and look above the steel rod. You should see a black belt with rubber teeth on it. (On some models, the cartridge access is very small, but the belt should still be visible.)
3. Take the top part of the belt and move it gently to the right. The cartridges should come towards the center.
4. If the cartridges will not move, tilt the printer on its back and try moving the belt again.
5. If it still will not move, try putting your finger inside the area where the cartridges are stuck (with the printer still on its back), and push them firmly against the cartridge carrier holder while you move the belt with your other hand.
6. Once the cartridge carrier is in the middle, please make sure that the cartridges are snapped firmly into the cartridge carrier. Note: Make sure that these cartridges are the correct models for your printer. Once the cartridges are seated properly, they should not become loose inside the carrier.
7. Plug all the connections back in and power the printer up.
8. Open the front cover again to see if the cartridges slide to the center.

The print cartridge cradle cannot move.


"The print cartridge cradle cannot move."
I fixed this problem by disconnecting the power cord from the power-strip and connecting it directly into the wall. My printer was not getting enough voltage from the power-strip. I hope this helps.

Cartridge gets stuck....


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} I had the same problem it seems this printer (i don't know a lot about printers) has a lever that holds the cartridge bay at the right for cartridge cleaning. If you move the printer on the side or during a paper jam it can move this lever and get out of sync with the cartridge bay cleaning process witch is when you power on the printer and this problem may happen.

I took the top off the printer and noticed that when the cartridge bay wanted to move to the left this lever wont go down holding it at the right and when it did go to the left it was with some force so the cartridge bay was always out of center (it supposed to be at the center when you turn on the printer otherwise it will give an error message) so I pushed manually this lever at the right (is hard to move but you can move it) and let the cartridge bay sit on the cleaning pads at the right then turn off the printer.


When I turned on the printer, the cartridge bay returned to his proper routine and was centered so the problem was solved. I hope it helps.

Paper jam?


Check Paper light flashes but there isn't a paper related problem The check paper light may also flash if there are other problems. Verify the following conditions:
  • Verify that the print cartridge door is closed.
  • The print carriage may be jammed, follow these steps to correct the problem:
    1. Open the print cartridge access door. If the print carriage can move, it should move to center. If the print carriage stays all the way left, unplug the power cord and then plug it back in. This will reset the unit and may allow the print carriage to move from the left.
    2. Disconnect the power cord from the all-in-one.
    3. Remove both print cartridges.
    4. Move the print carriage left and right slightly to verify that the print carriage will move freely. If the print carriage will not move freely, check for obstructions.
    5. Close the print cartridge access door.
    6. Plug the power cord back in.
    7. After the all-in-one initializes, the print cartridge light will flash. Open the access door and install the print cartridges.
    8. Close the print cartridge access door. If the problem returns, remove the print cartridges and wipe the electrical contacts before reinstalling them.
  • Try to make a copy. If the all-in-one pulls in paper but cannot make a copy, there may be a problem with the scanner mechanism. Contact HP for assistance.
