Ollivetti ANY WAY PHOTO PLUS - DOES NOT DETECT INK CARTRIDGE

Can anyone please help. I did not use my printer for a few weeks. Then when i tried to print something it says 'can not detect ink cartridge'. I am sure there is some ink in the cartridge as this is a hardly used printer. i cant even use the san function as it says printer is busy, wait until its idle.

I have seen someone having exactly the same problem and asking for advice on another techsupport forum, but nobody replied to it.

Can somebody help?

I HAVE SEEN PROBLEMS SIMILAR TO THIS. I DONT KNOW EXACTLY HOW TO SOLVE IT BUT I MAY BE ABLE TO HELP YOU ATLEAST BYPASS THE PROBLEM SO YOU CAN ATLEAST USE YOUR SCAN FUNCTION IF THE PRINTER DOESN'T LET YOU PRINT AFTER YOU DO THIS. WHEN YOU ARE ON JUST THE DESKTOP OF YOUR COMPUTER, ON THE BOTTOM TOOLBAR ALL THE WAY TO THE RIGHT SIDE THERE ARE SMALL ICONS FOR A FEW THINGS, ONE OF THEM IS USUALLY FOR YOUR PRINTER...RIGHT CLICK ON THAT ICON, AND IT WILL GIVE YOU A FEW OPTIONS, IF YOU HAVE "PRINT JOBS" STILL HANGING IN THE SYSTEM YOU WILL BE ABLE TO SEE "PENDING JOBS" EVEN IF YOU DONT THINK YOU HAVE ANY YOU MAY FIND THAT THERE ARE SOME, ONCE YOU CLEAR OR RESET THERE, YOUR PRINTER WILL THEN AGAIN BECOME "IDLE" AND YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO USE IT FOR ATLEAST SCANNING AGAIN.... I HOPE THIS MAY HELP ATLEAST A BIT

Hi there !

There should be ink resetter in your your printer. Just reset it and it will detect the ink cartridge.

If not, purchase chip resetter available in the market that enable your printer to reset the chip set and detect your ink cartridge.

Because on required ink cartridge is recommended. If you use other brand of ink cartridge, it will damage your printer and soon enough it will not detect anything at all.

Hi

Some ink printer had ink resetter and just go to ink set up.
If your printer have ink resetter, do it otherwise it will not recognized new ink installed.

If not, some new ink cartridge when the tape is remove, there are cases that the sticky leaf on the ink cartridge, just rinse it with warm water or alcohol to detect the ink cartridge. Turn off your printer and your computer. Then return the ink and open your printer and computer to print again.

Note : Use only ink that is compatible with your printer because it you use other cartridge it will damage the chip set of your printer and it will not recognized any cartridge at all. SO beware.

I hope it helps you.

Ink cartridge slams from side to side and lights


Epsons often experience this odd problem. This is a sort of tempory fix.
turn printer on allow carriage to leave its base and disconnect the power cord.


Clean the rails the cartridges run on. You should notice the cloth comes away with black stuff.
Use a small amount of sewing machine oil on a cloth and wipe the rails again ( or small amount of wd40 on a cloth.

Slide the carriage along and back a few times. then return it to home and reconnect power cord and turn on. That should get it to behave for a few more weeks/months. If it continues, then the head is damaged and will have to be renewed or buy a new Canon Printer. ( NOT EPSON)

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

If the red light is on constantly you may need to change another cartridge or reseat the new cartridge. Also try wiping the chip on the cartridge with a dry cloth.

Hi

There is a problem with the sensor on the printer, try using an ink cartridge just for troubleshooting purposes, if everything fails. have it service or buy a new printer instead.
