Wrong cartridge alarm problem.

The printer was working fine the previous day, and now today I have this alarm in and it wil not let me do anything. The cartridges are about 80% full and I have taken them all out and installed them again with no success. Are there any solutions out there for my problem, as they would be appreciated.

    I have same problem... This is driving me crazy... Do I give up and get a new printer?

    Printer worked fine yesterday. Today, "wrong cartridge" flashes along with the "alarm" light, and it will not print. I've already paid for new cartridges and I'm not very enthusiastic about paying for anything more.

Sensors might be dirty due to dust, try cleaning with cotton swab and contacting manufacturer.

My printer says errror do not recognise cartridges. they are genuine epson and worked fine yesterday


If that message comes, you have to try with another new cartridge. Just because it worked the previous day, doesn't mean it should work the following day. Once, when I refilled and used it, it worked and didn't work the following day. So try with a new cartridge and check the expiry date as well.
You should take it to the dealer, if you have the receipt and he will gladly change for a new one. It happened to me once!

Our printer wil not PRINT New Toner installed today No paper jam What is the problem


Hi,

Before we proceed, kindly provide few more details :-

1. Is there any error message on the display?
2. Any LED's blinking?
3. How old the printer is?
4. Do you used a refilled or original cartridge?

Unplug the printer for few minutes, say 15 minutes and then turn it ON. Re seated the cartridge to make sure that it is properly seated.

Let me know,once done.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

On my canon MX 310 printer I put in new Canon CL-41 Fine color cartridge and now the alarm light is lit and the screen says Check Ink U051 COL How can I correcty the problem?


You may need a new cartridge, that error says the ink cartridge is wrong or not installed properly. If it's a refilled cartridge it won't work, if it's a new canon cartridge, they warranty for 30 days from date of purchase.

Blinking power light


It could be the timing of the cartridge is out possibly from the belt.

It should be serviced by a technician.
