Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.

SOURCE: Need to change dried old ink cartridge before it says it is out

While the printer is on, press and hold the paper feed button. The ink cartridges move into the replacement position.

Also useful to make sure you use every last drop of ink in a cartridge (the software lies!).

Brother 1840c -problems after changing cartridges


If you are using new cartridges, the problem is in the sensors. The ink sensors get dirty and malfunction. Remove the ink cartridges and thoroughly clean all the surfaces, Allow to completely dry and replace the cartridges. This should cure your problem.
p.s. I usually use alcohol on a Q-Tip to clean

HP deskjet 920C replaced both ink cartridges and now it prints in


When we see high page volume in these printers, the cleaning ink resorvor needs to be cleaned. It may be even to teh point of stopping the head cleaning carriage from functioning.

It sounds like it is not priming and wiping the head of the cartridges correctly.

You can also try setting the head of the cartridge on a damp warm (water wet) paper towel. If there is ink coming out onto the paper towel you know it is the printer not the cartridge. If you are not seeing any color then I would change the cartridges again.

Ink well cleaners


There is a design reason why the print heads are changed when you change an ink cartridge is changed. The print head isn't made to be reused and the quality of your print will suffer at some point if you reuse the same print head 6 or 7 times. I would get new cartridges and be happy with the print quality that a new cartridges will bring.

After you get the carriage centered to remove the ink, power off the printer. If you replaced the cartridge with a new cartridge check cartridge for tape residual that might be covering the copper contacts. ( you may not be able to see this).
If you use a refill kit. Most printer Mfg's insert a chip in all there ink cartridges. This chip tracks when you remove an empty cartridge through the printer software. So it knows you replaced the same cartridge forcing you to buy another.
You can also clean the copper ink cartridge contacts with some alcohol & cotton swabs. (Careful not to drip excessive alcohol onto the bottom of the cartridge). Clean the carriage contacts as well. Re-place the cartridge & try again.

Luck!

Try opening the printer properties and cleaning the print heads (should probably be done each time a cartridge is changed), it uses some ink up but should clean the build up from running the previous cartridge dry and hopefully solve your printing problem.

Good luck.

Won't stop cleaning and using up all ink in cartridg


I found a solution at another forum. I have the same printer with the same problem. What you need to do is put some electrical tape on the colour cartridges to stop the printer from sensing the ink level. I put tape on the clear plastic ridge on the back end of the cartridge and this allowed me to print from the black ink cartridge even though the colour ones were empty. I used black tape which i think would work best.

I am also going to leave the printer off until i need it so that it doesn't waste the ink by doing random cleaning at all times of the day.
