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

Hello, This happens with epson as it has a chip on the cartridge, which sometimes shows the cartridge empty even if there is some ink left on it. You can try this steps:- 1. With the printer turned on press the ink replace button, which will bring the print head to ink replacement position, pull out the cartridges one by one and cover the tip of the cartridge with some tape and shake the cartridges and reinsert it on the printer and press the ink replacement button once again, the printer will check the inks cartridges, if the inks is empty it will show the red light again, pressing the button once will bring the printer to ink replacement position with the cartridge to be replaced on the replacement position. you can also check on the printer software on the pc that which ink cartridge is emptied.
Hope this helps.

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.
