    We have had this printer since Christmas and the past 30 days the same problem has happened to us....help

  • pamela_2008 Nov 02, 2008

    I've tried three different cartridges, (all KODAK of course), and each one does the same thing--doesn't print black. I tried taking the cartridge out and cleaning the slot it fits in. No luck. As to the suggestion of cleaning the print head, if this were the trouble, wouldnt the color cartridge ALSO not be functioning?


    And where is the printhead and what does it look like?

False ink empty


Are you sure its exclamation mark?..
This warning message related to print head. (warn out). When you are replacing ink tube assembly use dummy print heads to do the priming (new ink tubes are empty & they have to fill with ink)..
Action: Remove all cartridges and print heads, switch on the printer follow the screen message.(Insert cartridges first next dummy print heads).once its recognizes cartridges then it switch over to print heads,insert dummy print heads. Once printer recognized the dummy print heads, printer will perform priming, during priming dummy print heads will filled with respective inks.(follow the display message)Remove dummy print heads & insert normal print heads. Wait till printer recognizes print heads, load the paper & wait till performs the calibration, once calibration is successfully done issue closed.
If calibration not successfully done, check align print out for which print head is not printed properly, replace it..
Pl ensure that minimum 50% ink levels required in cartridges before performing the priming. Best of luck..

My printer keeps printing blank pages. I have cleaned the heads, re-started the printer, restarted the computer, checked all the cables and the problem persists.


You may need to purchase new ink cartridges and install new ink cartridges. take in the old ones into your computer store to make sure you get ink cartridges that will work in your make and model of printer.

If however you have already installed new cartridges then you will want to make sure that the plastic sticker that is some-times placed over the ink cartridge's contacts is removed.
Usually one will need to perform several deep clean cycles to get the ink to saturate the system and print well. Print test pages as you go.

Take care!

How to install the ink


Open the front cover on the printer. The print cartridges should slide on a conveyor belt from one far end of the print chamber to near the center. There should be one black ink cartridge and one color cartridge.
Remove the cartridges from the printer. This should simply involve grabbing and pulling the cartridges out. There may be a flap holding the cartridges in place that you need to flip up first. Or you may need to press down on the cartridges to spring them out of place.
Decide on replacing the cartridges with a brand new ones or refilling the existing cartridges. Refilling the cartridges can cost less money in the long-term and reduce waste, while new cartridges will guarantee to work and have the most ink up front.
Refill the cartridges with fresh ink in order to reuse them. With black cartridges, you need to drill or melt a hole in the cartridge lid, while you will remove the lid to find the color cartridge's holes. Inject the correct color ink with a plastic syringe bottle. Reseal the lid on a color cartridge after refilling.
Dispose of the cartridges properly after you purchase new ones. Take the old cartridges with you to whichever store you get the new ones from. Not only will this help you find the correct replacements, but the store may also take the old cartridges for recycling.
Insert the new or refilled cartridges into your printer. New cartridges likely have protective tape over the print head that you'll need to remove. Run a test print on the computer to make sure that the cartridges properly work
Check to see if the printer still reads the cartridges as being empty (if you are reusing a refilled one). This will be due to a chip in the cartridges that the printer reads for the ink level. It doesn't change just because you refilled the cartridges. You must purchase an electronic device that will reset the chip for you.

How do I install the printer cartrige? I do not have the booklet...


  1. Turn on your printer.

  2. Open the front cover.

The ink cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position unless the printer is busy.

  1. Press the tabs on the cartridge lids, then lift the lids.

  1. Remove the old ink cartridges.

  1. Store the cartridges in an air-tight container or dispose of them properly.

  2. If you are installing new ink cartridges, remove the sticker and transparent tape from the back and bottom of each ink cartridge.


NOTE: You can use your printer with one cartridge (color or black) at a time. To extend the life of your color cartridge and improve printing speed, install both a color cartridge and a black cartridge at the same time.
  1. Insert the new ink cartridges. Make sure the color ink cartridge is secure in the left ink cartridge carrier and the black ink cartridge is secure in the right ink cartridge carrier.

  1. Snap each lid closed.

  1. Close the front cover. The front cover must be closed to start a print job.

  1. Open the Dell Printer Solution Center by clicking Start® Programs or All Programs® Dell Printers® Dell Photo Printer 720® Dell Printer Solution Center.

  2. Click the Maintenance tab.

  3. Click Install a new print cartridge.

  4. Click Next.

  5. Select the type of cartridge you installed.

NOTE: Specify whether the cartridge is a new cartridge or an old cartridge (one that has been used before). If an old cartridge is incorrectly identified as New Cartridge in the Dell Printer Solution Center, ink levels may be incorrect.
  1. Click Next.

Lost my manual, need to change the ink cartridge, help


  1. Look at the indicator light on your Lexmark printer. You'll need to replace ink cartridges when the light flashes or turns red instead of the standard green.

  2. Purchase Lexmark ink cartridges. You can buy the brand name or purchase a generic version that is compatible with your printer. You can shop for low cost ink cartridges from ABC Ink.
  3. Step 3 Remove the old cartridges from your printer. Grip the sides of the Lexmark ink cartridges and pull it out. Dispose of the ink cartridges in a recycle program like the one at Staples or save the cartridges for refill.
  4. Step 4 Install the new ink cartridges after removing the protective tabs. Avoid touching the IC chip when installing the new Lexmark ink cartridges. Replace the cover of the printer.
  5. Step 5 Allow the Lexmark printer to run a nozzle test. Print several pages with the new ink cartridges to make sure you installed the ink cartridges correctly. The indicator light should return to a solid green color.

How do you change the black cartridge in the printer epson stylus nx115


Here is the Link showing instructions below. If you find this helpful, pls rate me.

http://files.support.epson.com/htmldocs/nx110_/nx110_ug/wwhelp/wwhimpl/js/html/wwhelp.htm

Replace Ink Cartridges
Your Epson Stylus NX110 Series and its software will let you know when an ink cartridge is low or expended.
If ink is low, the ink light flashes. You can continue printing until a cartridge needs replacement.
If a cartridge is expended, the ink light stays on. You must replace the cartridge to be able to print.

Warning:
Keep ink cartridges out of the reach of children and do not drink the ink.
Note:
If you need to change a cartridge before it or any other cartridges are low or expended, run the Ink Cartridge Replacement utility.

You cannot print or copy when an ink cartridge is expended even if the other cartridges are not expended. Replace any expended cartridges before printing or copying.

Leave your old cartridges in the Epson Stylus NX110 Series until you are ready to
replace them to prevent the print head nozzles from drying out.
When an installed ink cartridge is more than six months old, you may need to replace it if your printouts do not look their best, even after cleaning and aligning the print head.
Follow the instructions in these sections to check and replace your ink cartridges:
Check Cartridge Status
Purchase Epson Cartridges
Replace Cartridges Using a Printer Software Utility
Remove and Install Cartridges

pls rate me. Thanks and Good Luck...

Print page comes out blank


If the cartridges are old too this may be a problem. When ink gets old it can clog the cartridges. If they are old replace them with new ones. If they are new ones did you peel the protective covering off before you inserted the cartridges? Hopes this helps
