    Ok, so I took off the "I'm with Dummy" t-shirt as it had me perplexed all night as to how to get the arrow pointing to the side instead of up...


    I didn't even see the make and model within the topic, so I apologize for that.

    Now to the topic at hand.

    1. Are you sure that you have pushed the ink cartridge in all the way? You should hear a loud snap when you install the cartridge, and it might seem like your being a little rough with it, but then again, it does have to be able to stay in place. And since the problem started AFTER installing a new ink cartridge, this problem occurs, which makes me think that the ink isn't installed correctly.

    2. Have it in a plug all by itself? Or in a surge protector all by itself? It might be in a faulty outlet. How about where the power goes into the printer? Is that in all the way as well?

    3. Do you need to adjust the contrast of the Brother machine?s LCD? Here's how to check that:
    - Press Menu/Set, 1 (General Setup), 7 (LCD Contrast).
    - Press the Up Arrow key to increase the contrast.
    - Press the Menu/Set to confirm your choice.
    - Press the Stop/Exit to exit the menu.

    Hope one of those solutions help, if not, you'll have to take it in to the shop as it might be some faulty wiring/soldering.

My printer keeps saying to install a ink cartiage but there is one already in there.

Solution 1. you need to remove and return tightly the ink cartridge.

Solution 2. maybe you purchase ink cartridge that are not compatible with the printer.

Solution 3. if you are only refilling the ink cartridge, maybe it is worn out and the printer is no longer detecting the cartridge due to wear and tear.

I would remove the refill. HP voids the warranty if the cartridge leaks. I have seen refills leak and destroy the printer. Replace with a brand new cartridge. If that is not the solution you want. You can remove the cartridge and clean it with rubbing alchohol and a paper towel or a q-tip, just make sure there is no fuzz left when your done. Also if you have the HP software installed on your computer, there is usually a cleaning program built into the software.

Changing ink cartiage

ab-e - open the lid, the cart will move to the center, use your index finger on the top of the cart. push down and out. Here's the instructions from Lexmark's site.

Hope that fixed ya...


Guest: The lid switch must be bad, you can manually slide the cart assembly with your fingers if need be.

I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM. tried all the print solutions. Some of these units are not compatible with all OS. After do the obvious clean nosel stuff several times you may want to remove cart. and clean contacts with a clean pencil eraser, warm water and then dry completely. It didn't work for me but..... Alternative is to by a Cannon.
