O make the task of refilling printer ink cartridges using HP printer ink refill kits easy for the average computer user, here are a few tips and tricks.
1. Always buy an HP printer ink refill kit that is specifically manufactured for the particular model that you have. Each printer unit requires a specific formulation of ink to function properly. Feeding your HP printer with the wrong type of printer ink will permanently damage your printer.
2. Never wait for your printer ink cartridge to go bone dry before you refill it. Always watch out for signs that the ink cartridge is running out of ink. If you wait too long, the printer ink left inside the cartridge will clog the cartridge outlets and damage it. Refilling a damaged ink cartridge will result at best in bad print quality and at worse in irreparable printer head damage. If you are not sure if your printer ink cartridge is empty, print a test page.
3. Make sure that you follow the instructions on your HP printer ink refill kit to the letter. If you do not follow the instructions carefully, you will only end up with a damaged cartridge, or worse, a damaged printer head.
4. In filling a colored printer ink cartridge, be certain that you fill the cartridge chamber with the correct color of ink. Failing to do this will result in skewed printing results.
5. No one wants to get messed up while refilling an ink cartridge with a refill kit, so always line your workplace with cloth before you begin. Cloth will absorb the ink and keep it from seeping onto the surface of your workplace.
6. Got ink on your hands while refilling your printer ink cartridge? Do not worry about it. To remove ink stains from your hands, just wash it first with soap and water to get the excess oil of the ink off your skin. Follow it with a wash of mild bleach mixed with water. And then, wash your hands again with soap and water to get the bleach off.
Using HP printer ink refill kits are very handy and can result in considerable savings. But here is a caveat for you, though: If your printer is still under warranty, you will lose your warranty in case it is damaged by printer ink from the refill kit. Also, you can only refill an HP printer ink cartridge once or twice because the risk of ruining the printer gets too high. So, be careful in your use of HP printer ink refill kits.

reinstalled the correct way WITH THE PRINTHEAD STILL IN THE

    You can clean the head from the printer software or take it out and run some warm water over the ink ports/ink jets.

    Are the ink tanks securely clicked in place? they can come loose easily

Printer ink cartridge is damaged


Yes replace the cartridge. If this does not solve the problem try replacing the toner. Any further than that is an issue for the manufacturer

Hp c6180 states cartridges missing or damaged


OK now this might seem bizarre, but did you go ahead and click the "Black Only" print option?

I have a C6180. Just installed all new cartridges. Tried to print and got the message that Cyan is empty. Tried all sorts of things. Then out of frustration clicked the Black Onl option. Document came out printed in color! Double checked with a picture that has lots of cyan colors. It all printed too! Go figure.

Xerox DC12 Error code 9-355


Error code 9-355 indicates, the magenta toner dispenser is broken and in need of repair.



Open the Front Door

From left to right, the Toner Cartridge colors are Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black.


As a pre-caution, place a few sheets of paper on the floor, under the Toner Cartridge area, to catch any toner that may spill.



Remove the Toner Cartridge by rotating the handle to the left until the handle is in the unlocked position.



Pull the cartridge completely out of the machine.

Check for any obvious damage in the cartridge or printer and reinstall. Replace cartridge if damaged.

If error message continues, call a qualified repairman.

I hope this helps you fix your printer.

Printer Canon iP1700 - I have already put the new inkcartridge black & colour but the printer says inkcartridge colour is not installed properly. I have installed so many times but same problem.


Mostly, printer cartridge error occurs when the printer head is unable to identify the cartridge properly. And the basic reason behind this is that the cartridge is improperly attached.

To reattach the cartridge check the following steps :

turn on the lid of the printer and then remove the cartridge from the printer head.

Check the cartridge to make sure that there are no scratches or other damaged parts that can contribute to a printer cartridge error report.

Take note that the cartridge should not be left open for more than 30 minutes; otherwise the ink will start to dry up and the cartridge will get clogged.

Have you replaced the magenta ink cartridge? green is a mix of the yellow and cyan, indicating a lack of magenta. If your cartridge is a 3 color, then the magenta is likely empty or the cartridge is defective.

Ink cartridge problem( s) appear to be missing or damaged


hi there,

Ink cartridge Problem
Cause : The indicated ink cartridge(s) are missing or are damaged.

Solution : Replace the indicated ink cartridge(s) immediately so that you can resume printing. If there are no ink cartridges missing from the HP All-in-one, the ink cartridge contacts might need to be cleaned.

IF there is no ink cartridge missing from the HP All-in-One, and you still receive this message after cleaning the ink cartridge contacts, you might have a damaged ink cartridge. Replace the ink cartridge.

Hope this helps. Please rate my response.
Thanks.
Have a good day.

The light for the magenta cartridge on my iP3500 printer goes off


The cartridge, as well as all ink jet cartridges has a chip inside that tells it how much ink is in the cartridge. Your cartridge is LYING, except it prevents you from printing without all cartridges working. ( same for my 6 color epson ). You need to replace the cartridge. I get my cartridges at a yahoo store called Inks4less. They have good quality for cheap.

There was a study done, analizing the amount of inks left in inkjet cartridges when they indicated empty, and the range was 7% to 25% ink still left.

Your Black cartridge is empty.

From the user guide:

Black, Cyan, Magenta, and Yellow Supplies Status lights
These lights indicate when a print cartridge is low (the light is on), or empty or missing (the
light blinks). The lights also indicate when a non-HP print cartridge is installed (the light
blinks and the Attention light is on).

Here is a link for the User Guide:
