There may be debris that is blocking the communication between the cartridge and the printer, especially if you are using a remanufactured cartridge. Remove the cartridge and unplug the printer from the power supply. Take a little bit of rubbing alcohol on a cotton swab and wipe off the contacts on the cartridge as well as the contacts inside of the printer. Allow both to dry for a few minutes before plugging the printer back in and re-installing the cartridge. This should clear up any miscommunication between the two.

Uninstall the program from your computer. Plug in your printer first replace with new cartridge making sure to remover the film on the cartridge Then plug in patch cord to computer, program should reinstall if need be you may have to have your disk that comes with the printer. Hope this works, Printers are going for very cheap I would suggest buying a new one if this does not work.

My lexmark 640 printer is not printing ie blank page after printing, yet the ink levels are high as i've hardly used it. what can i do, please? sandy


Print quality issues can be due to clogged print cartridge nozzles. Please follow the steps below to fix the problem:
  1. Try to remove the cartridges from your printer
  2. Close the printer cover.
  3. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it.
  4. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges.
  5. Your printer will then try to print an alignment page. It will help clean the cartridge nozzles.
  6. After the alignment page comes out, try to print a document again to verify if problem is resolved.
If the problem continues, try to launch the Lexmark Solution Center on your computer. Go to Maintenance and select Clean Cartridge.
You can also try to insert a different known working cartridge to determine if it's a cartridge problem.

If it is a Kyocera toner than that is the problem. The key to turn the toner is different for the Kyocera toner cart. It will fit and appear to work but won't. Also turn the unit off and unplug for 15 sec. will reset and perform boot up procedures might help.

It could be that your cartridge needs some cleaning or the cartridge is not seated properly in the carrier. Open the printer cover. Remove the cartridge and wipe the cartridge nozzles with a moistened soft cloth to clean it from dirts and clogs. Close the printer cover. Unplug and replug the printer into the power outlet in the wall to reset it. When the printer turns on, reinsert the black cartridge and make sure it's properly inserted.

Hp deskjet 882c printer carriage is stuck


Hi first of all you need to make sure that everything is in good shape on the carriage and the cartridge holder,

also check if you have any broken plastic pieces in the printer.

you mentioned the reset a well
was it a partial or a semi full reset

another thing which we can try is
1>take out both the cartridges
2> unplug the power cable while the printer is on
3>press the power button for 30 sec to remove the static
3>replug the power
now let the printer lights blink prompting you to put the cartridges
4>put the black cartridge first
some Hp printers work on single cartridges as well.
5>see if you hear the same grinding noise again
6>try cleaning the rollers with a little damp lint free cloth
7>try putting the color cartridge
make sure that the cartridges snap inside properly.
8>see if the problem persists

Replacement Cartridges and Reset Button Orange Led


That usually means that the chip on a re-manufactured cartridges had not been reset properly.

Ensure you removed the little cello strip from bottom side of cartridge.
Try unplugging printer power cord for five minutes, and also re-fitting cartridges.

If that does not work call the company and have them replaced.

Note: for the future, it is better buying always original new cartridge rather than refilled/refurbished ones, as you do not know as many times a refilled had been used. On sporadic occasions refilled cartridges can fail and damage the printer.
