Gives me error 5200


Start with printer powered off
1. Open cover of printer and verify that the ink cartridge carriage is not in the center of the printer. Leave cover open.
2. Unplug the electrical cord from the printer and wait 30 seconds.
3. Plug electrical cord back in, when ink cartridge carriage moves to the center of the printer quickly unplug the electrical cord again. This should leave the ink cartridge carriage in the center of the printer so you can get to it.
4. Lift up the gray arm that surrounds the ink cartridges.
5. Remove the entire ink cartridge holder (not just the ink cartridges). It will lift out easily as a unit. Lower the gray arm that you lifted to remove the cartridge holder.
6. Close printer cover. Plug electricity back in.
7. There should be a message about checking the ink cartridge on the display (I can't remember exactly what it said but it was something like that).
8. Open printer, lift the gray arm that surrounds the ink cartridge area and reinsert the ink cartridge holder (with the ink cartridges in it). Lower the gray arm.
9. Close printer cover.
10. The display should appear normal now, and you should be able to print again.

Black ink cartridge holder not working , can not print with black ink cartridge holder, when i use the colored ink holder printer works ok


The problem you are describing is with the black ( BC-10 ) print head and not with the printer.

1. Check your black ink tank and be sure it is not dry.

2. Run the printer through one DEEP cleaning cycle and see if that improves the print.

If your black ink tank is full, and the deep cleaning cycle produces no improvement, you will need to replace the BC-10 print head.

What does the 5200 error code mean on printer mp250


The 5200 error message indicates over heated print head. There may be some dried up accumulated ink on the bottom of the print head.

Start with printer powered off
1. Open cover of printer and verify that the ink cartridge carriage is not in the center of the printer. Leave cover open.
2. Unplug the electrical cord from the printer and wait 30 seconds.
3. Plug electrical cord back in, when ink cartridge carriage moves to the center of the printer quickly unplug the electrical cord again. This should leave the ink cartridge carriage in the center of the printer so you can get to it.
4. Lift up the gray arm that surrounds the ink cartridges.
5. Remove the entire ink cartridge holder (not just the ink cartridges). It will lift out easily as a unit. Lower the gray arm that you lifted to remove the cartridge holder. Check for any debris or residue and clean while it is out of the printer. You can use either isopropyl alcohol or hot water on a Qtip. Be care if you use alcohol because if you have rubber gaskets it may dry them out. I recommend warm water.
6. Close printer cover. Plug electricity back in.
7. There should be a message about checking the ink cartridge on the display
8. Open printer, lift the gray arm that surrounds the ink cartridge area and reinsert the ink cartridge holder (with the ink cartridges in it). Lower the gray arm.
9. Close printer cover.
10. The display should appear normal now, and you should be able to print again.

I hope this helps and good luck!

Printer wont print black.already replaced with new ink but still wont print black


did you take the tape off the new cartridge and is the print head burned out for the black? if you installed the diagnostic's on it then run it and see what it says, otherwise expect the print head to be cooked, however it is possible to get a bad ink cartridge try tapping it on your finger and see if ink comes out if it does not then the ink cartridge is dried out or no good, about %15 of print cartridges are bad on just about any brand printer some more than others.

New Ink cartridge doesnt work on IP4300.


You have actually bought a dead cartridge as the ink there has dried up.
Either u kept it for long without use or the shopkeeper.
Now what u can do is take a syringe and fill it with luke, warm water and leave it in that stage for half an hour .
Then syringe out the water and allow it to dry in sun for 10 min.
Now fill the ink and u will be going

I just replaced black ink cartridge and snapped all cartridges back in place and recharged the printer now it wont recognize the black ink cartridge even though it was just replaced


Try wiping the copper contacts on the new cartridge with a dustfree cloth dampened with some alcohol. Dry thoroughly before reinstalling.

I can't get my hp 960c printer ink light to stop flashing


Remove the new cartridge, inspect the contacts,usually gold little square,this is how the printer talks to the cartridge, make sure there is no ink on it. Where the cartridge ink dispenser is and where it comes in contact with the cartage holder,try and put a little rubbing alcohol on a q-tip and clean the area,
it sounds like some ink has dried there and is not allowing the new ink to come out. Some printers
have another cartridge that holds the ink cartridge, if this is the case, remove both of them for easy inspection and cleaning. If this does not work or not sure, go to the hp website and put in your model#
and search the troubleshooting tips. If that does not help contact them with an e-mail for support.
Hope you get it working.

The printer doesn't recognize the new original HP color cartridge


There is a small spring that holds the ink cartridge in the ink holder. You will see it stick out from the right hand side of the ink holder where the ink cartridge slides in. If that spring isn't being held to the ink holder by two plastic tabs, (I.E. the plastic tabs are broken) the printer will never recognize the cartridge. If the printer is still under warranty I would contact HP or an authorized repair center for HP. Both the black and color ink holder has this spring. I know of no way to repair this kind of breakage.

Ink cartridge question


Try Soaking the print head in Warm water for about 3 minutes. Dry off the print head with a paper towel. If you don't see any ink on the paper towel, then the print head is clogged and it will be difficult to unclog the cartridge.
If the warm water doesnt work, then next try some Windex with amonia. Only soak the bottom of the cartridge where the ink comes out. Soak the printhead for about 3 minutes, and then try wiping off the bottom again. Press a dry paper towel on the bottom. If there is no ink then it is probably time to get a new cartridge. In the future, always try to refill your cartridge right away as soon as possible so that the ink in the cartridge/print head doesnt get a chance to dry out.

I hope this helped.

Wont print


Look at the end of the cartridge and see if there is ink build up on it. If there is, you can run it under warm water (not the whole cartridge, just the print head). Do not "rub" the print head, as that will force ink back up into it. Let the warm water dissolve any ink built up on it. Let it air dry (no towels, etc).

Does it have more than one cartridge?
