HPpro L7600 works for about 6 pages then says replace black but black is new so reinsert and again works for about 6 pages then says replace magenta then repeats


try this. Clean the place were the ink goes into the printer. On the printer with running alchol and a qtip. Be real gental, and try and leave any residue or cotton on either place. Also, check and see if the cartridge reset itself. Sometimes you have to go into the program and reset it manualey. Sorry about the spelling errors, good luck and let me kknow if this helped!

Hi

Some ink printer had ink resetter and just go to ink set up.
If your printer have ink resetter, do it otherwise it will not recognized new ink installed.

If not, some new ink cartridge when the tape is remove, there are cases that the sticky leaf on the ink cartridge, just rinse it with warm water or alcohol to detect the ink cartridge. Turn off your printer and your computer. Then return the ink and open your printer and computer to print again.

Note : Use only ink that is compatible with your printer because it you use other cartridge it will damage the chip set of your printer and it will not recognized any cartridge at all. SO beware.

I hope it helps you.

We have HP Designjet 110plus. Our magenta is flashing saying that it is out of ink, however it wasn't. We replaced it with a new cartridge, and it still reads empty. Please help!


Turn off the printer, disconnect and remove everything like power cable, usb cable, cartridges etc.. Connect your power chord and power on, leave it for few minutes (clean the cartridge interfaces not the head, and the corresponding interfaces on the printer). Again shut down the printer using the power button. Reconnect/reinsert everything, and again power on the printer before you connect the Usb to the computer. Now check if it helps or not. This will clear any static memory/voltage. Good luck Thanks for using FixYa.

OfficeJet 9130 incorrectly reporting empty ink cartridge


Look to see if there is dirt or other debris inside the Magenta Ink slot. There is probably something there disrupting the ink flow. Use a flash light to see if ink is clogged. Use Acohol with Q tip to clean the area and reinsert the ink cartridge. Make sure the printer is off and the slot has dried before turning the printer back on.
Hope this helps. Helen

Prints only green predominently


Without knowing what printer you have or what things you have tried I can only guess here. It sounds like you need a new cartridge. A color ink cartridge will have 3 colors of ink for most printers...cyan (blue), magenta (purplish-maroon), and yellow. Depending on what you print it is very possible that you could run out of one of the inks before the others. Printing green can be an indication that you are out of magenta ink. The cyan and yellow inks will combine and look green.

You can remove the cartridge and run a tissue over the printhead and see if you see all 3 colors as a quick test. If you only see cyan and yellow, then the magenta is probably empty or dried up. If you see all 3 colors I would reinsert the cartridge and try printing again. It is possible that the magenta was just clogged and you cleaned it with the tissue. If it still doesn't print all colors your best bet is probably to just get a new ink cartridge.

Brother mfc-410cn colour cartridge problem


There may be three problems here.

1.Not doubting your skills for one minute, nor wishing to offend you in any way, but did you remove the protection strip off of the Magenta ink cartridge? Sometimes we forget to do that.

2.Once a new ink catridge is installed, it's best to go to the Brother diagnostic tools section, and run a test. Sometimes an error code is kept, (Ink cartridge is empty), and the diagnostic tool checks this out. It then clears the error code, and 'recognizes' the new ink cartridge.

3.Ink may have dried, for the tiny little holes for the magenta ink cartridge, where it attaches to the body of the printer. Just this one ink cartridge. Suggest you don a pair of rubber dishwashing gloves. MFC-410cn -> Unplugged <- from the surge protector, use a clean, lint free, warm water, damp cloth, and wipe the holes for the ink cartridge, where it lines up with the printer body. This will be where you see that copper metal strip. (Or perhaps it's brass)

To clarify, you are cleaning the printer body. The area where the ink cartridge goes, and the metal strip. The ink passes from the ink cartridge, and goes through holes in the body of the printer. The metal strip is where these holes are located. Allow this area to dry. You may want to use a hair dryer set on low heat to speed the drying process up. Constantly move the hair dryer back and forth. Keep it about a finger length away.

Once you are satisfied this are is dry, reinsert the magenta ink cartridge. Plug the printer back into power. Advise waiting one minute, then turn the printer on.
Use the Brother diagnostic tool.

Should you not be able to find the Brother diagnostic tool, I suggest you go to Start>Hover your mouse cursor on All Programs>Go over to Brother>MFC-410cn>and to the Help section. The Help section, will tell you how to open the diagnostic tool.

Printer won't print magenta


So what does the machine do: Not recognizing the cart (error: insert magenta) or does it not print onto the paper?

In 1# case: Reinsert the magenta cart and make sure that the support is secured above the cart top. If it is recognized: OK.

If not unplug mfc from power. take all carts out. Wait five minutes. Reconnect machine to power. wait until machine demands carts. reinsert cart as demanded and give the right answers (see display).
Machine should run a short cleaning cycle.

In 2# case: Insert full carts well. press menu then start mono (blue) then fourtimes arrow-up (te-index). machine will be in maintenance mode. press 7 then 6 then 4. machine will initialize the carts. after some cleaning cycles machine will be
in mentaenance mode again. Press 9 then 9 to leave mode. press ink etc. to run a test print. If it fails and you cant see any magenta, the valve or filter is clogged and cant be fixed anymore.
