    i tried cleaning with alcohol, but the printer still doesn't detect the expensive new cartridge. Maybe i should just drink it instead!

The cartridge is not seated properly and/or the contacts are dirty. Use a cotton swab with rubbing alcohol and gently clean both the copper contacts on the cartridge and inside the cartridge socket. Allow several minutes to dry and then try again.

Printer will not recognize new blk ink cartridge.


I think either the printer's scanner(or film as some call it) and/or the carriage is faulty. The signal cable that connects the carriage to the logic board could also be a suspect. Try replacing these items one after another and the culprit will be isolated. Good luck.

C4280 printer photo cartridge instalation help


The extra cartridge you bought was probably the number 99 cartridge, if I'm not mistaken.

The cartridge actually replaces your black cartridge. Inside of the cartridge has black ink as well as the special photo ink.

I hope this helps
