    Cleaned the print head and the 2 little pads. Now I get a solid green light and an error message saying 'cartridge not installed'. I put 4 new cartridges in and got the same message.

Buy a new printer! Honestly. What likley happened
it that the brown ribbon connector on the back of the frame that
holds all the ink wells has become ripped off or torn from
the green circuit board. This means that there electrical connection is gone, and the printer can't sense the frame
is in place.

This likely happened when you were cleaning it!
It's impossible to repair yourself, you need a new
black frame. And....you can't buy one separately.
You practically need to buy a whole new printer.

Sorry....

How do I fix e07


I assume you have a Canon copier based on the E007 error code. The Fuser fixing film is torn and the Fixing film assembly or the entire fuser should be replaced. Very common issue.......You cannot reset that code without first replacing the part causing the code.

I HAVE INSTALLED REFURBED CARTRIDGES WHICH I HAVE USED FOR MANY YEARS IN MY CANON IP 90....I RECENTLY REPLACED THE PRINT HEAD. NOW I GET THE MESSAGE INDICATING CANNOT FIND COLOR CARTRIDGES. I INSTALLED...


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!

Sir, if you have installed Color Cartridge but if you are getting the message about not finding the color cartridge then its means Color Cartridge in not installed properly.
Please follow the following steps to install the cartridge again.

1. First of all Confirm that the printer is powered on.

2. Open the card slot cover and then the front cover. The cartridge holder moves to the replacement position.

3. Remove the cartridges.


Note: Handle the cartridges carefully to avoid staining clothes and surrounding work area.
4. Insert the cartridge into the cartridge holder.
Note: Push up the cartridge until it clicks into place.
6. Close the front cover. Wait until the preparatory operation is complete; it takes about one to two minutes.


Now check the printer again. If you still get this error message then it means the Cartridge you installed is not exactly proper, or if you think that u got this cartridge from the reliable source and it is proper and exactly fine cartridge then the problem is in the Print Head. You need to check it again.


I hope you have a clear picture in your mind.

Don't hesitate to let me know if you have some confusion.


Sir, Your Rating for this solution as Maximum Stars and words of appreciation will be esteemed.


Thank you for taking my service.

Error message on HP 2800 business inkjet, message reads 1% ink left on brand new cartridge


Hello,

View the user manual here. http://bizsupport2.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00449611/c00449611.pdf

go to page 60 and follow the instructions for replacing the ink cartridge, remember to have the printer on when you do.

Then go to page 62 and allign the print head automaticly following the instructions it gives.

This will re-callibrate the ink level on the printer and should read correctly for you.

Thanks

Ink cartridges cannot be recognized in canon printer


Hello!
Remove the cartridges and gently wipe the cartridge contacts with a dry cloth, then put them back in. Then, hold the "resume" button for 10 seconds for each cartridge, that should reset them.
If that doesn't work, one of your cartridges (sadly) needs to be replaced.

Keep getting a U071 error message for cartge Y


Open the printer cover and check to make sure only one Yellow cartridge is installed. If so, try the following:
Remove each of the other cartridges, one at a time as necessary and see if the error message changes. Start by lifting the cover, then wait for the printhead to move to the left so you can access the cartridges inside. Pull out one of the other cartridges ( not Y) by pushing its front tab back then close the cover. Check the display, repeat as necessary. The error should have changed to U043 (bad or missing cartridge) once you remove the bad cartridge. When you replace it, the printer should work. My guess is the Magenta or Cyan cartridge is causing your error.

Error: ''Wrong Cartridge'' when no new cartridge has been installed


It is probably one of the cartridges. Usually, when the message "wrong cartridge" appears, the cartridge is faulty.

Fifteen Flashes: The FINE Cartridge cannot be recognized.
Possible causes are as follows:
- The FINE Cartridge may not be installed properly.
- The FINE Cartridge may not be compatible with this printer.
Install the appropriate FINE Cartridge. If lines are misaligned or the resulting output is not satisfactory, carry out the Print Head Alignment.

Canon MP500 error message


If you're using Canon OEM (branded) cartridges you're going to need to ID the problem chip/cartridge so I'd try and get hold of some empty originals from somewhere (CartridgeWorld or similar perhaps?) and put those in as replacements for one cartridge at a time until you ID the problem cartridge/chip

If they're non-branded then chances are you do have more than one of the same chip but the solution is much the same...


If all else fails, take the printer to a friendly retailer who sell Canons and ask them to help you ID the problem cartridge.
