Question about Printers & Copiers
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
