Printer was off for a week and when turned on indicates "incorrect black cartrige installed"


Use lint free cloth and clean the contacts on cartrige and contacts on printer were the cartrige gos in. Be very gentle and very careful do not damage the contacts. Reinstall the cartrige an try again to get it to print. Do not touch the inkjet on the bottom of the ink cartrige it may distroy the print head chip on the ink cartrige and make it useless.

Hp printer power light keeps blinking -- wont print any document


Turn both your printer and computer off then after a few minutes turn back on. This should cancel the print job.

Since installing new ink cartrige every time I turn on the printer it prints an alignment page


Hi:
This problem is usually caused by one of the colors in the installed cartrige not printing out on the alignment page. You need to have red, blue and yellow working to get a good alignment. Try removing the cartridge, and wiping the print head with a wet paper towel to try to start the ink flowing. You should see three bands of color ink oozing out the bottom. If not, the cartridge is bad and needs replaced again!

Just had my color cartridge refilled, and reinstalled correctly. However, the printer will not print with the color cartridge in, but will print with the black cartridge only.


your newly installed cartrige which is the colored one is not detected or mybe damage....may i ask if how many times did you refill already your cartrige?refilling a cartrige can cause damage to its circuit i suggest purchase a new colored cartrige and see if it works.

Ink level didn't change


s.gif Deskjet 5100 series
  1. Click Start or c01319360.gif , click All Programs , click Hewlett-Packard , and then click Printer Assistant .
  2. Click Utilities .
  3. Click View ink levels .
    • If a cartridge is low on ink, discontinue these steps, replace the cartridge, and then try printing again.
    • If the cartridges contain a sufficient amount of ink, continue to the next step.
  4. Click Printer Maintenance .
  5. Click Clean Cartridges .
  6. Follow the on-screen instructions.
ISSUE: After installing a new HP Inkjet print cartridge, the ink level indicator remains at the previous level. SOLUTION: Continue to print and ignore the ink level indicator. The print cartridge is full of ink, it just is not being measured accurately.

What does the cartrige icon stand for in the hp deskjet 840c?


If the cartridge icon is being displayed and the printer wont print it means either the cartridge is installed incorrectly or you are out of ink.

My hp deskjet 1280 will not print yellow


Hello, this is Harry from www.BusinessSpread.co.uk.
We had the exact same problem when printing, we used 3 different 78 colour ink cartages and they all said 100% full but did not work. We then had a look at the dates on the box and they were all expired so when buying ink from anywhere even PC world or Curry’s always look at the expiry date.
Today I went to PC world and purchased a new 78 ink which said expires July 2011 and it works perfectly fine.

I inserted new black ink cartrige. Changed setting to black print only. Color cartridges are low but should be ok if only printing in black. However, it will not print. It is a Brother 420CN.

Thanks.
