I have a canon pixma mp190, i just put in black ink but now a error 5 appears on the led. I dont have color ink but i dont think that would matter. The ink is properly installed, any suggestions


WHAT YOU NEED TO DO IS GO TO THE PROPERTIES AND CLICK ON THAT. A BOX SHOULD APPEAR AND HAVE A MAINTENANCE TAB CLICK ON THAT. WHEN THAT BOX OPENS GO DOWN TO WHERE IT SAYS INK CARTRIDGE CLICK ON THAT AND IT WILL OPEN A BOX THAT SHOULD SAY USE BLACK CARTRIDGE ONLY OR USE BOTH CARTRIDGES OR COLOR ONLY. CLICK ON THE BLACK INK ONLY AND THAT WILL FIX YOUR PROBLEM.
GOOD LUCK

How to change ink in HP Deskjet F480 printer???


  • Check the ink levels by opening the HP Solution Center. Click on "Settings." Click on "Toolbox." Click on "Services." Click on "Service this device." Click on "Estimated Ink Levels." A graphic will appear showing the estimated ink level in each cartridge.
  • 2 Verify that the unit is on. Open the print cartridge door allowing the print carriage to move to the far right side of the unit. Once the print carriage has stopped, lightly press down on a print cartridge to release it. Pull the print cartridge toward you out of its slot. To replace the tri-color print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the left. To replace the black or photo print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the right. Place the cartridge in a plastic bag as it may still contain some residual ink and may leak.
  • 3 Remove the new print cartridge from its packaging. Remove the plastic tape by using the pull tab, being careful to not touch the copper-colored contacts or the ink nozzles under tape.
  • 4 Slide the new print cartridge forward into the empty slot. Gently push the upper part of the print cartridge until it clicks into place. The tri-color print cartridge fits into the left slot. The black or photo print cartridge fits into the right slot.
  • 5 Close the print cartridge door. If the print cartridge alignment sheet prints, load it on the left front corner of the scanner glass with the top of the page to the left. Verify that there is plain paper loaded in the input tray, and then press the "Scan" button to align the printer.

    When we do a fax test, we get clear print; when we try to print documents nothing appears, altho it goes thru all the right sound motions


    Sounds like your colour cartridge is empty. Fax test will pull from black only but documents sometimes use a combination of colours in order to print out black. I suggest checking your ink levels - instructions for windows;

    Check ink levels
    NOTE: If you have installed a refilled or remanufactured print cartridge, or a cartridge that has been used in another printer, the ink level indicator will be inaccurate or unavailable.
    1. Open the Printer Toolbox . There are two ways to do this:
      • Open HP Director , select the Settings menu, then the Print Settings submenu, and finally the Printer Toolbox .
      • Open Printers and Faxes in the Windows Control Panel , then right-click your printer icon and choose Properties . Click Printing Preferences . Click the Services tab, then the Service This Device icon.
    2. The Printer Toolbox opens. Click the Estimated Ink Level tab. A cartridge may be running out of ink even if the graphic shows ink remaining (see the note at the start of this section). Lines or streaks always appear in printouts when the cartridges begin to run out of ink. Replace print cartridges that are out of ink or low Check ink levels

    Re Canon 2600 printer.I recently purchased a black Ink cartridge and replaced the old one. A week later the color cartridge also shows empty even though I hardly use color. Can I not print in greyscale...


    Hi,
    Please follow the instructions below from Cannon support page...

    Setting the Ink Cartridge When printing, you can specify which ink cartridge to use. This is convenient if one of the ink cartridges becomes empty, you can continue printing by specifying the ink cartridge that still has ink. Note:

    • A type of paper other than Plain Paper is selected for Media Type on the Main tab.
    • Borderless Printing is checked on the Page Setup tab.
    • Canon recommends that you use the ink cartridges installed in the printer and not remove them until the ink runs out.

    Ink cartridge assembly not going to correct posy to replace black


    Remove the cartridge and put it back in. If still it doesn't work, try to do head cleaning and nozzle checks consecutively from the computer.

    Start -> Control Panel -> Printers & Faxes (Windows XP) / Printers (Windows Vista) -> Printer Icon (right click) -> Printing Preferences -> Maintenance

    You should be able to see nozzle check, click it and follow the prompt. Line patterns that corresponds to the colors of the ink cartridges would be printed. If breaks on the black pattern or no black appears at all, continue with head cleaning. Try to do this about 3 times until all patterns are complete.

    How to change black color inkonHp2175all in one


    Supported HP ink cartridge part numbers The HP PSC 2100, 2170, and 2200 all-in-one series products use the ink cartridges listed in the table below. The HP 58 tri-color photo ink cartridge replaces the black ink cartridge for six-ink photo printing. Ink cartridges Part number HP 56 black ink cartridge (19 ml) C6656A HP 57 tri-color ink cartridge (17 ml) C6657A HP 58 tri-color photo cartridge* (17 ml) C6658A HP 27 low capacity black ink cartridge (10 ml) C8727A HP 28 low capacity tri-color ink cartridge (8 ml) C8728A * Replaces the black ink cartridge for six ink photo printing and includes cartridge holder. Replacing the ink cartridges The power must be turned ON to the all-in-one or the print carriage will not come to the center.
    1. Locate and raise the print cartridge access door on the front of the unit, just above the output tray. The print cartridge carriage will move into the middle of the access area. Figure 1: Raising the front access door and the ink cartridge latches c00224418.jpg
    2. Press down lightly on the top of the ink cartridge latch of the ink cartridge to be replaced and then pull the lower section of the latch toward you to unlatch the ink cartridge.
    3. Grasping the sides of the ink cartridge, pull the cartridge toward you to remove it as shown in Figure 2. Figure 2: Removing the cartridge after raising the latch c00224419.jpg
    4. Remove the replacement cartridge from its packaging, and touching only the black plastic, gently remove any tape covering the nozzles. Do not touch the gold-colored contacts. Figure 3: Removing the protective tape c00224420.jpg
    5. Holding the ink cartridge with the printed label up, slide the cartridges one at a time into the print carriage as shown in Figure 4. The black ink cartridge (HP 56 or HP 27) goes on the right side (with the gray latch) and the tri-color cartridge (HP 57 or HP 28) goes on the left side (with the blue latch). If the optional photo cartridge (HP 58) is installed for six-ink photo printing, it is installed in place of the black ink cartridge. Figure 4: Inserting the cartridge c00224421.jpg
    6. Place your hand on the latch as shown in Figure 5, with the thumb pulling the end of the latch toward you. While holding the end of the latch out, press down on the top of the latch until it stops and then release the lower portion of the latch with your thumb so that it catches under the tabs. Do not force the latches into place or damage to the unit might occur. Close the all-in-one after latching the ink cartridges in place. Figure 5: Latching the ink cartridges in place c00224422.jpg
    7. Close the print cartridge access door.
    8. A message will appear in the front panel display requesting that the ink cartridges be aligned. Press ENTER on the front panel to start the cartridge alignment. Two pages will print. Following the instructions printed on the second page, place the first page on the scanner glass in the lower-right corner and then press ENTER to finish aligning the cartridges. Remove the page from the scanner glass when complete.
    Storing the option photo printing cartridge while not in use The optional photo print cartridge (HP 58) that may be purchased separately for six-ink photo printing includes an ink cartridge protector. The protector is designed to keep the photo cartridge from drying out when it is not in use and for holding and protecting the black cartridge when the photo cartridge is in use.
    • To insert a cartridge into the protector, slide it into the protector at a slight angle until it snaps in place.
    • To remove a cartridge from the protector, push down and back on the top of the protector to release the cartridge and then slide the cartridge out of the protector.
    Figure 6: Inserting and removing ink cartridges from the ink cartridge protector c00224423.jpg Fixing error messages that appear after changing a cartridge After inserting the cartridge, one of the following messages appears:
    • Check the black (or color) cartridge
    • Replace the black (or color) cartridge
    • The wrong black (or color) cartridge is installed
    These messages indicate that the ink cartridge is not making good electrical contact, is bad, or is the wrong cartridge. Complete the following steps to diagnose and correct the condition:
    1. Open the front of the unit to access the print cartridges (as shown in Figure 1).
    2. Remove the ink cartridge indicated in the message and inspect it.
    3. Verify that it is the correct part number and if it is, reinsert it.
    4. Close the lid to see if the problem is corrected.
    5. If the message is still displayed after a few seconds, remove the ink cartridge again.
    6. Unplug the power cord from the back of the unit.
    7. Clean the electrical contacts on the ink cartridge with a soft clean cloth, slightly dampened (not wet) with clean water. Each contact is very small and shaped like a rounded square. Figure 7: Cleaning the cartridge contacts c00224424.jpg
    8. Inside the HP all-in-one product, clean the contacts in the print carriage (the cartridge holder) with a clean cotton swab slightly dampened with clean water. Allow them to dry for five minutes before reinserting the cartridge(s) and turning on the printer. Figure 8: Contacts to be cleaned c00224425.jpg
    9. If the problem remains, replace the ink cartridge.
    10. If the problem still exists after trying all of the steps above, contact HP for assistance.

    Black Horizontal lines


    hi!



    Horizontal white lines usually indicate the ink cartridge is running out of ink or has some clogged ink nozzles. Try the following steps:
    1. Some of the ink cartridge ink nozzles may be clogged with dry ink. Use the ink cartridge cleaning service to try to clear them. Follow the steps below:
      1. check if there is plain white paper in the Input tray.
      2. Press Setup .
      3. Press < or >to select Tools and then press OK .
      4. Press < or > to select Clean Print Cartridge and then press OK . The unit prints a test page.
      5. Examine the test page. If the print quality of the page is good, stop here. If the print quality appears to be getting better, run the Clean Print Cartridge utility again
    2. If the self test appears better, Increase the copy quality setting (Normal or Best) and try copying again. If the quality is still poor, continue to the next step.
    3. If the quality is still poor, one or more of the cartridges may be low on ink or empty. Follow the steps below to check the ink levels.
      1. Open HP Solution Center .
      2. Click Settings .
      3. Click Print Settings .
      4. Click Printer Toolbox .
      5. Click the Estimated Ink Levels tab.
      6. Replace any ink cartridge that is low on ink.
    4. If the ink levels are not low, clean the cartridge face and electrical contacts at the back of the print carriage.
      1. Open the front of the unit to access the ink cartridges.
      2. After the ink cartridges are at the center, unplug the power cord from the back of the unit, and remove the ink cartridges. The power cord must be removed to ensure that the unit is not damaged during the cleaning process.
      3. Clean the cross-hatched area of the ink cartridge with a soft clean cloth that is slightly dampened with clean water to remove any build up. Avoid cleaning the ink cartridge nozzle plate. Cleaning this area can force foreign matter into the ink nozzles and plug them
      4. With a soft lint free cloth slightly dampened with clean water, clean the copper-colored contacts on the back of the ink cartridges.
      5. Allow the cartridges to dry before reinserting them.
      6. Close the unit, and plug the power cord back in.
      7. Print a self-test page to check the results. Follow the steps below to print a self-test page.

        3. Press < or > until Self-Test Report displays and then press OK . The self-test report prints.
      8. If the problem is not corrected by cleaning the ink cartridges, replace the ink cartridge(s).
    - hope it will help to resolve you problem...
