My hp photosmart 5514 won't print. I put in new ink-black and color- and it goes through the motions, but the page is empty


I just had this exact problem on my HP 5514. Black won't print after running out of black ink. New cartridge no good.
I tried everything-no good. I suspected the pinholes in the printhead were clogged with dried ink because I didn't change cartridge in time.
The fix that worked perfectly was when I hacksaw top off old black cartridge & removed all foam wicks so now I had a funnel(can see clear thru). I installed the cartridge & filled it with alcohol, printed page & did head clean; then printed few more pages. Problem cleared almost immediately. I then soaked up extra alcohol inside cartridge with paper towel. Removed modified cartridge & installed good one. I guess this could be done for colors as well. I don't know if this is a proper procedure, but it sure worked well for me.

Printer says cant print until cyan ink is replaced. Have replaced it with 2 different cartridges, but still wont print


You won't be able to print if one of the cartridges is out of ink. The printer will prime every once in a while thus the need for all cartridges to have sufficient ink levels to prevent damaging the printhead.

How do i change my ink cartridge on my mfc-295cn


Hello and welcome to FixYa;

  1. Open the ink cartridge cover. If one or more ink cartridges is empty (for example Black), the LCD shows "Cannot Print (Replace BK Ink)" or "B&W Print Only."

  2. Press down on the release lever to unlock it and take out the ink cartridge for the color shown on the LCD.

  3. Open the new ink cartridge bag for the color shown on the LCD, and then take out the ink cartridge.

  4. Turn the green knob on the protective yellow cap clockwise to release the vacuum seal, then remove the cap (1). You must hold the ink cartridge as indicated in the picture below.

  5. Each color has its own correct position. Insert the ink cartridge in the direction of the arrow on the label.

  6. Gently push in the ink cartridge until it clicks, and then close the ink cartridge cover.

How to change ink?


Press print button. Choose replace ink. Ignore this two steps if the display on your printer is Colour Ink is Empty.
Open cover. Press the round side of the ink cartridge holder arm and the holder will pop up. Take out the ink cartridge. Put in the new cartridge and pop the holder arm back by pressing it down.
Remember to remove the seal below the new ink cartridge before replacing it.

How do I change the toner?


The Fax-2480c does not use toner cartridges.
This is an inkjet and so uses ink cartridges.

There are 4 cartridges, black, yellow, cyan (blue) and magenta (red). If any of these cartridges are empty, you need replace them.

This machine takes LC-51 cartridges.
You're probably out of warranty so jsut get refills... it's cheaper

Brother 1840c -problems after changing cartridges


If you are using new cartridges, the problem is in the sensors. The ink sensors get dirty and malfunction. Remove the ink cartridges and thoroughly clean all the surfaces, Allow to completely dry and replace the cartridges. This should cure your problem.
p.s. I usually use alcohol on a Q-Tip to clean

The ink cartridge holder was kind of wiggly, so I put a wedge in the side to push the contacts together more. It worked.

I have changed all of my ink cartridges;but the black mode will not print,the color is working fine.


After replacement of each ink cartridge the machine will display "Did you change?" for each colour. If one or more do not come up with this message you may have a problem.

Check each cartridge for the black flag is moving up and down with the liquid in the ink cartridge. If it stuck firmly tap it on a table until it is freed.

Another problem if the black sensors in the ink supply unit are pushed back it may not read the cartridges. If visably they look pushed back (usually only two) I can let you know how to correct.

Finally the mainboard in the machine can fail causing some inks not to read but you can not resolve this yourself.

Re install ink


I know this is a dumb question but did you remove the tape off he bottom of the ink cartridge? Also sometimes if you are using a generic ink cartridge the machine may not recognize it. Make sure the cartridge is seated in properly and that it is in the correct location. (not color spot). Hope this helps. John
