CX 3900 Ink Problem

My black ink ran out recently so I tried to replace it with a new one, but after replacing it, the red no-ink light still blinks to prompt me to replace and won't let me print.. then it says on the screen that no new cartridge is detected or that the ink is ingenuine... so i bought another cartridge and put it in but I still get the same problem?

does anyone have a possible solution to this?

    i don't think the computer or its programs have anything to do with this error, because even when i'm starting from scratch and have disconnected the printer from the computer.. the printer still shows a lack of black ink..

Normal 0 Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Could be ink cartridge no contact, or it is dirty. Or if you try to print and this printer that flag a message " end of service life......parts." . You should reset it counter using third party software. In kinda connection with ink pad.

HP 932 RED LIGHT STAYS ON


The light you describe is the ink light.
When that light is blinking, try this.

Turn on the printer. Open the front cover and look at the carrier for the ink cartridges. There is a white arrow right above the latch for the color cartridge.
Once the carrier stops moving, the white arrow should be pointing to a symbol which represents the problem (the reason the light is blinking.) Examples are low ink black, low ink color, sick black ( replace ) , sick color ( replace ).

IF you have just replaced your black cartridge, you might need to replace your color cartridge too.
This printer will not work without both ink cartridges installed and full.
You cant print with a full black and an empty color cartridge unfortunately, even if you only want to print black.

Hope this helps!

Not printing after color cartridge ran out - new black cartridge installed.


Yes, this printer has fixed printheads and must have ink in each color to prevent damage to the printheads. Even when printing black only each color is spit in the servicing area to keep the printhead unclogged.

Need to change cartridge on ip3300


Greetings...

This Canon ip3300 has four ink tanks... PGI-5 Black, CLI-8 Cyan, CLI-8 Magenta, CLI-8 Yellow

Lift the front of the printer while the printer is on and the ink tanks will move to the center... the empty tank will have a blinking red light... the inks that are ok will have a steady red light... press the small tab in front of the ink tank that is blinking and remove... insert and press down the new tank and make sure the red light is on to show you have replace the ink correctly...

This should work, let me know if you have any additional questions...
