Won't recognize toner cartridge

Printer has full ink in every color installed correctly as far as I can tell but i keep getting a message saying install toner cyan,toner yellow, toner black, toner magenta. i'm getting insanely frustrated and it's pretty much life and death for my family business to get this printer working. any suggestions would be a great help at this point. i can't afford to purchase a new printer at this point.

I also had this problem - and was advised by my toner supplier to return to my old toner cartridges and replace with the new, one by one, turning off the printer in between. I did this and gradually I isolated that although the yellow toner was new - it was defective and everytime I inserted it it gave me the message that all the toners needed to be replaced - when they didn't! - This may help others. I know it may not be aby good for Jai Shesays right now though!

Installed toner cartridge samsung clx6200fx and it keeps saying install toner what is wrong

Did you get a Samsung toner cartridge or an off brand? Toner cartridges have small chips that tell the printer how much toner is left.. Not all of those chips will work correctly.

My Printer isn't recognizing an ink cartridge

Maybe its the toner end sensor that's full of toner or covered with toner. If you have a blower, give it a good blow with it. Usually its dust or toner thats on a sensor. Try that first before a technician is called and you have to pay.

Cartridge is new and full but it says no ink?Is this is a software problem?

I will try to answer your question as best as I can since it is a little hard to diagnose a printer without physically being at the printer. Anyway, it is most likely not a software problem because from the sound of it, it is only one toner cartridge you are having problems with. I have had this type of problem before. I would try to contact the company you purchased the cartridge from. The reason why is because on a lot of these color printers have small microchips on the toner cartridges to keep track of how much toner is left in the cartridge, but these chips don't go by the physical amount of toner. I know it sounds confusing but let me explain. When the cartridge is first filled with toner, the manufacturer knows how much toner they put into it and they program the chip on the cartridge to let it know that amount, then when the cartridge is installed into a printer it tells the printer how much toner is in the cartridge and how "full" it is, then when the printer prints different jobs, it tells the chip how much toner in that color it used for that job, and the chip keeps track of how much toner should be left. Once the cartridge is "empty" the chip tells the printer that it needs to be replaced. Now, you may be wondering why have the chip on the cartridge, and not have the printer just keep track of how much should be left. Well, the main reason is because if you take the cartridge out of the printer and put it into another printer, that new printer will then have the correct amount of toner left told to it by the chip on the cartridge. This is usually done so you aren't printing off a huge number of things only to find out that halfway through the print project you ran out of a color and now have half the job that needs to be thrown away, and reprinted, wasting paper, and toner in the other colors that printed.

Anyway, I tell you this so you will understand this next part and how it could cause problems. If you purchased the toner from somewhere other than the manufacturer and got a "good deal" on the toner, you may have bought it from a place that does toner cartridge recycling, which just like the name suggests, they get used cartridges and reuse them so the cartridges don't end up in the landfills. Sometimes what happens is that after refilling the toner, the microchip either didn't get replaced, or didn't get reprogrammed to reflect that it is now full. So, I would contact the company you bought it from and let them know what is going on.

Like I said, I wanted to let you know how the printer cartridge and the printer worked so when you do talk to the company, you will probably be talking to a customer service rep which may or may not know very much about how the cartridge works with the microchip. So, knowing how it works may save you some time and aggravation when the rep says something like, "Well, it sounds like there may be something wrong with your printer, if the cartridge is full."

One other thing, if you have another cartridge in that color toner that you are having problems with, I would try that cartridge just to make sure it is only having your problem with the one cartridge, that will narrow down the problem to only one cartridge.

I hope this helps...

Hp c7820 printer 02 black catridge

Open the printer and remove the ink. Clean around the ink carriage and the under the ink with alcohol and a cotton swab. Pay special attention to areas with copper contacts. Keep in mind too that some printers will not print, even with full ink, if the exact type of ink it expected you to have installed is not right. Double check that the ink is correct against the manual or written instructions inside the printer using the number not the shape or color of the cartridge. Not every cartridge that fits the printer necessarily works.

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.

Hp psc 2110 incorrect ink cartridge message.

when ever i get that message it's when i use a "Non-HP" replacement cartridge...try using a HP catridge, or most likely, the printer has reached the end of it's usefull life!

you can try a "full reset" of the printer by..
-unplug it and let sit for a little while,
-BEFORE plugging it back in, press and hold both the enter and cancel buttons,
-plug the power cord in, and wait to release the buttons until the display on the printer tells you to,
-in many cases, this corrects some problems (especially that awfull grinding/ratcheting noise).
after many years of faithful service, i think mine is officially dead though...even the full resxet doesnt help.
