Make sure that the cartridges you installed are compatible for your printer.

Refilling the ink could actually damage the head that is why it is not advisable to refill, this will cost you more money for printer replacement.

Reseating the ink cartridges and rebooting the whole system could do the trick.

But if not, check if ink cartridges are really defective or has dried out so you can fix a return for those lemon.

This way we can identify if you really need to replace the printer instead of jumping into conclusions right away.

Thanks.

MFC-J430W will not recognize any new magenta cartridge!


When installing the cartridges, it is important that you insert them from left to right with the black cartridge first and the magenta cartridge last. The reason for this is because the magenta cartridge has a clip on top of it that goes into the cartridge door sensor. The clip needs to push the sensor in so the printer is able to function with the cartridge door open. If you insert the magenta cartridge first, the printer will think the cartridge door is closed and you will get a error message for the other missing cartridges.

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.

Printer does not recognize new ink cartridge


Are you using "refilled" hp cartridges? If so, they may be interpreted as "empty" or a non-hp cartridge if the carrtidge shell was manufactured prior to the recent time that hp began coding the electrics on the same type cartridges. This can also happen if you are using "compatibles". If this is the case, try buying original new hp carts. If that is what you already have, return the cart to the store as defective and as for a replacement.

Exactly the same frustrating problem. New cartridge = no ink


Two possible causes..

1. The cartridge chip is telling the printer that it's expired

or..

2. The rubber bulb in the base of the cartridge can be pushed all the way in without any ink leaving the cartridge. If that's the case the non-return valve in the cartridge itself has failed. This condition results in the printer thinking it's empty so you need to take the cartridge back to the supplier and get a replacement.


Hope that helps even if I've missed a third possibility.

"Ink cartridges cannot be recognized" when using genuine Epson


i had this happen to me twice with two different people, it is highly possible that your black inks are defective, its also highly possible that one of the other inks are causing this error. take them all out, and put one and see what happens, do this one at a time until you see something screwey.

also possible, the contacts on the printhead are dirty or are pushed in.

also possible, bad printhead.

Not recognize ink cartrdige Canon 6700D


Best thing to do is just replace the the indicated ink cartridge. Reason being is that even though the cartridge still has ink in it, it is the metal contacts on the cartridge that have to communicate with the printers on-board memory. If the contacts on the cartridge are fouled and are not communicating with the printer, the cartridge is telling the printer that "I am empty and I need to be replaced", even if it is full of ink. This would apply to all six cartridges.

I fixed it, but I'd like to be compensated for providing the solution to you. After all, you wanted to be paid for helping, so I too want to be paid for helping.

Printer doesn't recognize red cartridge


The ink cartridge is either either clogged or running out of ink. Run the software cleaning utility (almost always accessible from the printer) in order to fix a clog. Replace the ink cartridge if the clog cannot be fixed or if the cartridge is almost empty.
