I replaced an ink cartridge because the printer stopped working and showed a message that the old cartridge is empty. However after putting the new one in but the printer still refuses to work and shows...


maybe the cartridge is wrong, release it and clean the electrical contacts, put them again one by one, if notting happen, try this
Solution As the printer operates, it moves ink from the ink cartridges into a printhead reservoir. The printer does not deliver a message when an ink cartridge goes empty, because it still has ink in the reservoir. The printer continues printing until the ink level in the reservoir falls to a first trigger point - then a message appears advising the printer owner to Replace Cartridges Soon . At this point, other cartridges that are empty but have not reached the trigger point are also mentioned in the message, to save trips to the retailer. After the first trigger point, the printer can continue printing until ink levels in the reservoir reach a second trigger point. At the second trigger point there is only enough ink left to perform vital servicing tasks, and a new message appears, saying Ink Cartridges Empty . The options offered depend on the usable inks remaining. If no options are offered, the cartridges indicated must be replaced before printing can continue. The Ink Cartridges Empty options are described in the table below: Ink colors out Option Print mode possible All Cancel None Black

AND

Cyan, Magenta, or Yellow (any or all) Black only Continue with other colors Cyan/Magenta/Yellow mode (composite black)

Text and photo quality will differ from those printed when all colors are available Light Cyan or Light Magenta (either or both) Cyan, Magenta, or Yellow (any or all)

(Black still available) Print with black ink only Grayscale

How do I change the toner?


The Fax-2480c does not use toner cartridges.
This is an inkjet and so uses ink cartridges.

There are 4 cartridges, black, yellow, cyan (blue) and magenta (red). If any of these cartridges are empty, you need replace them.

This machine takes LC-51 cartridges.
You're probably out of warranty so jsut get refills... it's cheaper

Hi, I just got a Cannon369 MP360 the black ink is empty,but there is color ink in it. It will not print anything. Do I have to replace the Black to get color in to work??? Since it's 2nd hand I don't want...


With this type of printer you need to have a full black cartridge to print black and white. The new Canon BCI-24 black cartridge from Staples is only $8.29. These cartridges are even cheaper from refillers. I recommend Cartridge World or Office Depot for printer cartridge refills.

How do i replace cartridge


On the right hand side of your machine-FRONT-right there is a panel that should have come with a sticker on it, you may have taken the sticker off so anyway, it is the ONLY panel on the front right side it just pulls down, put your finger on the rigth side of the machine yhou will feel a little indent and then pull it down, and there are your four ink cartridges. Each cartridge must be replaced individually and on the bottom of the panel you pulled down it will be labeled (B for Black, Y for Yellow, C for Cyan and M for Magenta, and each print cartrdige should also be colored to make it easier as well). Anyhow, you pull the little plastic purple tab that is covering each ink cartridge (in the machine) forward towards you and it should release the cartridge for you to pull out and dispose of) every now and then I have a little trouble and need to use something to help me get started pulling a cartridge forward-just like the tip of a pen or something but you should have no problem with this, and then you put the new cartridge in-the way it says-there should be an arrow on it showing you which way to put it in (also look as you pull the old one out) and as you push the new one in, the plastic tab will click shut and you will hear a "'spray sound". When you are done, close the cover and the machine will first do a "cleaning" before it is ready to be used again. Here is a tip for you as well, this machine WILL NOT WORK if you have any empty ink cartridges, they ALL must have some ink in them for you to print anything, even if you just want to use black, you have to color cartridges as well, I try to use every last bit of color before replacing a cartrdige, I wait until IT MAKES ME REPLACE IT by saying "empty black cartrdige" before I replace it "near empty" is NOT ENOUGH to replace it, mine has been saying "near empty magenta" for weeks now and it still works fine, it just wants me to replace with a new one and waste more money as this ink IS VERY EXPENSIVE, it cost me over $75 to replace all four ink cartridges, the best deal is to get the combo pack with all the colors, or the one with the three colors and then the double black pack. some colors will obviously get used quicker than other colors, so like I said, I have been waiting to replace that "near empty magenta" UNTIL I HAVE TO, as it hs been telling me to do so for weeks now, and I have a replacment in the drawer but once I replace it, it is like throwing money in the garbage since the one that is near empty, is FINE sitting in there while I PRINT OUT BLACK AND WHITE COPIES most of the time anyway, it just won't let you print if ANY of the cartrdiges are ACTUALLY EMPTY, even if you are not using that color, you still cannot have an empty cartrdige or NO cartridge in the machine, it just WIL NOT WORK. GOOD LUCK.

Wont copy in black because color cartridges are empty


Hi,

I'm sure you're using the Blue button to make the copy as it should do B/W copies only.
Double-check that black cartridge is not empty.

If the printer was connected to computer then we could have used diagnostics software.

So we start with a workaround.
Check if its display menu has any option of Ink cartridge level reset or something like that. If it has then do the reset.

If there is no such Menu option, the while the printer is On, open the compartment of printer cartridges and take out the 4 cartridges
and put it back.
Does any option in display Menu comes asking if cartridges are replaced? answer yes if it asks.

Now try to do a copy.

Hope this helps.
If it doesn't work then a question, how many days before the printer was last used?

Have you tried
  1. Taking out all the cartridges
  2. Power down the power
  3. Power up the printer
  4. Open the scanner Cover
  5. Close the scanner cover
  6. Message will ask you to put the ink.
  7. Put in Black
  8. Close scanner cover
  9. It may ask you whether the Black is being changed.
  10. Open the cover.
  11. Install Cyan.
  12. Repeat step 8-10 for the rest of the 2 colours.
  13. It should resolve the Black ink empty message.
Let us know if this works.

Thank you.

Ink cartridge light keeps blinking


you need to print only in black if that is all the ink you have, and also you need to remove the color cartridge as it still registers in the printer as able to be used, although it is empty or near so. Did you remove the tape over the print head fron the new ink cartridge? Do a print head alignment, or use the toolbox icon to tell the printer that you just replaced the cartridge. Some HP models chip the ink cartridges so even a refill wont register as a full tank and the printer wont print. chip needs to be reset (difficult) or just replaced with a new cartridge.
