Try first unplugging power cord, pulling out cartridges, and putting them back.

Restart the computer.

Ensure you removed the cellotape strip from new cartridges, and that cartridges are properly installed.

Ensure that the printer is set as default printer in Windows.

Print a test page from control panel>>printers>>properties.

If all the above does not work, try a replacement USB cable, just in case, then proceed reinstalling the driver software. Follow the method below to reinstall software:

Just put 2 new ink cartridges in my printer - black and tricolor. the printer receives the message to print, sends the paper through and sounds like it is printing, but then the paper is blank with no ink...


Hi

Just remove the new 2 cartridges and rub the print head in a plain paper with isopropyl alcohol until ink flows, and then return the ink cartridges and run the print nozzle for 2-3 times. After that, try to print again.

Please let me know if you need more help.

Put new ink cartridge into my Lexmark 2300 and now it won't print


Make sure you remove the print head protective tape. Also try doing a head cleaning and cartridge alignment page. If it still does not print check the cartridge well, you will see a assortment of copper pint that contact the circuit tracing on the print head, with the printer off get some achohol and a Q-tip and clean the pins there may be ink residue on them.

Bland and color cartridges have been refilled but


Ink level counter (program) didn't read actually ink at ink tank. Brand new cartridge ink level counter 100% (full), and ink 100% (about 10 ml). After may printing, ink will dry out, and ink level counter reach zero (ink out). Printer will not allow print anymore, even have refilled, because ink level read "ink out". For canon type, you just to release ink level counter, and counter just stop, but printer will allow to print. Press stop/reset button for about 30 second.

Ink well cleaners


There is a design reason why the print heads are changed when you change an ink cartridge is changed. The print head isn't made to be reused and the quality of your print will suffer at some point if you reuse the same print head 6 or 7 times. I would get new cartridges and be happy with the print quality that a new cartridges will bring.

Ink cartridge light keeps blinking


you need to print only in black if that is all the ink you have, and also you need to remove the color cartridge as it still registers in the printer as able to be used, although it is empty or near so. Did you remove the tape over the print head fron the new ink cartridge? Do a print head alignment, or use the toolbox icon to tell the printer that you just replaced the cartridge. Some HP models chip the ink cartridges so even a refill wont register as a full tank and the printer wont print. chip needs to be reset (difficult) or just replaced with a new cartridge.
