Open the printer cover and check to make sure only one Yellow cartridge is installed. If so, try the following:
Remove each of the other cartridges, one at a time as necessary and see if the error message changes. Start by lifting the cover, then wait for the printhead to move to the left so you can access the cartridges inside. Pull out one of the other cartridges ( not Y) by pushing its front tab back then close the cover. Check the display, repeat as necessary. The error should have changed to U043 (bad or missing cartridge) once you remove the bad cartridge. When you replace it, the printer should work. My guess is the Magenta or Cyan cartridge is causing your error.
what I've done is buy two ink cartges and then you can fake out the printer by installing them back and forth between the full cart and the empty ones. I like the option of refilling the cartges. What I did was take the cartges out. drill a small hole it the acess hole so I could refill each ink color and reseal the hole up (with a small plug) took a needle and heated it up. to make a small air hole for the ink to be able to get out (breather hole). then set them aside. I then took the two other ink cartges and installed them. faking out the printer to think that it had new cartgrs in it. tried to print some pages then put the filled cartges back into them. Some times you might have to do this a couple of times but once it takes all you do is to make sure that the ink cartges are ALWAYS FULL. I have been running for some time without haveing a problem. I hope this helps
hi, remove the color cartg take a tissue paper and run it horizontaly on the nozzel, if u can notice the three colors, ur cartridge is ok, may be the contact area of the cartridge,try to clean both the surfaces, and install the exact driver for the printer which will give you the cartridge maintenence options. let me know??
hi, whenever u replace any of the cartrgs in the printer ,u first need to run the alingment procodure from the maintenence option, even if u have not replaced the cartg, run the alingment from the printer properties first, and then u can get a proper output. let me know
