I have a number of hp printers. All are all in ones. It has been my experience that sometimes any of them can give you a false mess on the screen. For my printers the ink used are #23, #15, #78, #45. Any of them either new, compatible, or refilled can be misread. My only suggestion is to ignore the mess, and either make 1 copy manually, or from the tower to see if the misread really is a misread or if the cartridge really is either damaged in some way or is the wrong one. Or you can run the alignment page. In either case the result will be either acceptable or not. Also there are many other hp printers that use the same #s, the 900 seires in fact. The 600 and 700 series use a combination of the #23 and #15, The v40 series also use the #78 and #15. These can be found in second hand stores or the national chain GOODWILL INDUSTRIES, similar but not related to SALVATION ARMY. I hope this helps.

Will not recognise black cart epson artisan 810

Ok, like most inkjet printers, cartridges can be a headache. I use alcohol and tissue to clean the spray heads of the cartridges. then it is important to clean the electronic connections of both the cartridge and the printer. This connection not only helps measure the ink cartridge but also senses if the cartridge is inserted properly. not sensing a new cartridge was a constant problem with a recent HP printer i bought. cleaning it solved that problem.

Dial says to remove cartridges and check. Have replaced cartridge

After cleaning cartridges and replacing refilled black ink, I removed blck ink and replaced with HP 58 photo ink. this aborted the "check cartridges freeze". I still cannot align cartridges after removing #58 and replacing with new HP 57. the operation starts but will not complete.

Any suggestions on how to align cartridges?

Error 1203

Are you using a refilled cartridge1.gif or refilling your cartridge yourself?

Error 1203 is an issue that occurs either when a cartridge is bad or the printer1.gif cartridge Slot is bad... Try to cleaning the copper contacts of the both carts and cart slot in the printer and try again..
If that doesn't work, then you might try a new black cartridge and possibly a color cartridge too.
Hope this helps.
Good luck.
Please remember to post a feedback and or rating if my suggestion has helped you fix your problem.

Note: Refilling carts may damage the contacts of the carts as well as the printer (From a printer companies website)

unplug machine from power. remove all carts. close cover. reconnect machine to power. wait until machine demands carts. reinsert cart as demanded by machine and secure them by pressing them into position and fixing the clip above the cart cover. give correct answer as display asks. Set date and time again.

btw: always print until printer stopps printing! Never change cart befor that
because printer logic will be fooled ;-)

Cannot print

It seems that another cart is empty. Check all cartridges when printer is off. And yes, you do need the color ones to print in bk.
