Re: not printing even with new ink cateridge
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

I suggest if someone is not specialized in refilling ink in an empty cartridge, to get an specialist to the job that they do best to save you time/effort/money.
The cartridge has sensitive pins that the printer detects to determine the amount of ink inside the cartridge; other than this the ink may not have been flowing to the printing mechanism correctly indicating a low level. Try running printer maintenance procedure and replace the cartridge. If the printer indicates a low level, you may need to get a new printer cartridge.
Hi You not say what make of printer you got so not can gave you much help, because there is a reset code for different printers, the flashing lights you may be getting it because your, waste ink pads need changing and after this you need the reset codes for it but some times just the reset code will do the trick for it to print again. Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping. All The Best: Pineworks
did you take the tape off the new cartridge and is the print head burned out for the black? if you installed the diagnostic's on it then run it and see what it says, otherwise expect the print head to be cooked, however it is possible to get a bad ink cartridge try tapping it on your finger and see if ink comes out if it does not then the ink cartridge is dried out or no good, about %15 of print cartridges are bad on just about any brand printer some more than others.
Dear, don't be worried, you cateridge is full, it is showing the previous results. If you want to see the current catridge real status then follow these steps.
1. out the new cateridge. 2. uninstall the driver of your printer. 3. unplug the printer. 4. re-boot the system 5. install the driver now. 6. again restart the system and put the cateridge back into the printer.
This action will remove the previous data from the system registery and then your new cateridge original status will be shown.
Good luck in correcting your problem. Best wishes with Best regards.
Dear, when the cateridge get out of order, it disturbs the normal fucntions, you need to remove the color cateridge and check the printer with only one black cateridge to make printer work as a balck. The problem is with color cateridge, by removing it you can resolve it. The other way is to unintsall the dirver of printer and unplug it from the sytem, re-boot the system. Install the driver again, this will make the utility to show the right level of ink. Please try this, your problem will be resolved.
Dear, Remove the one cateridge and try to print, if it doesn't help then put back the first cateridge and remove the other cateridge. Tye to print. I hope your problem will get resolved as one of your cateridge is out of order now.
you do need both cartridges in and with ink or the printer will not print to prevent damage to the print heads from running dry. The printer normally uses a small amount of coloured ink to "tone" blacks but if you leave it set to Black only it won't do this and in the future you should only have to replace the black cartridge.
Even if the ink level is low, you can continue printing.Press the paperfeed knob for 5 seconds. inklevel indicator will stop now.
Sometimes a new (or refilled) cartridge is not recognised correctly.
When one color is really mt, stop printing and replace inmideatly the colorcartridge.Printing or scanning without the 2 cartridges in place is impossible.
I have had the same frustrating problem.
I cntacted the Kodak live web chat help line and after removing the print head,switching the machine off for 1 min and reconnecting.Clean heads and recalibrate.
.....Still the same.
They then told me the print head was faulty and to contact Kodak for free repalcement.
