Re: Printer won't charge new cartridges

Can't say that I've studied this in detail - but from memory, my cx5400 won't perform an automatic charge on Non-Epson cartridges. Have to power off and then back on. Painfull, but a not as painfull as paying Epson prices for ink.

Cartridge Error on printer

If your machine is displaying the message "cartridge error" then it is a problem with the cartridge. if you recently purchased them, you shouldn't have a problem returning them, especially if they are generic.

I've seen it often on Xerox's and HP's because they have chips on their cartridges that the machine has to read in order for it to work. sometimes the manufactured cartridges don't get a proper flash of those chips.

I've installed color cartridge but it won't print in color

Try to re-insert the color cartridge into the printer and make sure it is properly seated in the cartridge carrier.
If that doesn't help, try to clean the print nozzles. Please follow the steps below:
1. Press Copy. 2. Press Options until Maintenance appears on the display. 3. Press the right arrow until Clean Cartridges appears on the display. 4. Press Select. A nozzle page prints, forcing ink through the nozzles to clean the clogged nozzles. 5. Print your document again to verify that your print quality has improved.

I guess you should try to reset it ..and get the cartridge out and see if the toner (ink ) is getting out pressing it (with the part where you removed the tape ) on some absorbent paper ..when it is working well it should leave a mark on the paper ..the mark should be not washed ...but real color and all...
If it do not ..just use a syringe and blow air in the cartridge ..just to agitate it ..and make sure it is not dry ..
Insert it back ..repeat the procedure until works ..and also if you have the procedure ..reset it ..

Good job in re-seating the cartridges into the printer. Try to insert a different known working cartridge to determine if your other cartridge has gone bad.

Black ink cartridge

It seems that its an hardware issue with the printer as you have already replaced the cartridge with a new one.
If the printer is in warranty contact DELL to get the printer replaced.

I would also suggest you not to use refill cartridges. Always buy genuine cartridges. As using refilling cartridges spolis the printer.
It damaged the print heads in the printer.

HP Deskjet 3845

Sounds like the color cartridge is overheating. Could be defective, ESPECIALLY if it not an original Hp BRAND NEW cartridge. Change out the color cartridge and see what happens. Each tiny little nozzle has its own heating element. Electronics monitor the temperature. Will stop the printing until the temperature comes back to an acceptable range. Ed
