You can try cleaning the contacts (gold or brass in color) with rubbing alcohol or contact cleaning fluid. Also clean the contacts inside the printer. You will need to use a soft cloth to gently clean the contacts, something that won't lean lint inside the printer.

Disconnect power from the printer before starting and allow the printer to completely dry before restoring power.

The printer may have simply failed.

unplug maqchine from power. take all carts out. wait 5 minutes. connect machine to power. insert carts as demanded. give the right answer if machine asks if the carts are changed. machine will do some cleaning.

do you use generic ink? in that case you might have clogged the printhead with wrong ink. The ph cant be cleaned anymore.

nevertheless try this (carts should be nearly full!):
press menue then start mono (blue copy) then fourtimes arrow up. machine will be in maintenance mode. press 7 then 6 then 4. Machine will display init_all. press start mono. machine will refill tubes and
ph with fresh ink and do some cleaning. after that press 7 then 6 then 3 and start mono. machine will do a powerpurge.
press zero then 9 to do a quality test print. If it cant do the job leave maintenance by pressing 9 then 9. do the test print manually by pressing ink etc.

If you still do not see any colors the ph is clogged and cant be fixed anymore. It has to be replaced.

SOURCE: Only black cartridge empty, but 3 full color crtrige say empty

Remove the color cartridges. On one end you can see the opaque
ink tank inside the main cart. housing. Cut a piece of black electrical
tape to fit around the three sides visible of the ink tank. Make sure the tape fits inside the housing and adheres to the tank itself. This makes the printer think your ink is always full but you can always tell when you need to refill/replace the ink(right?). Good Luck!

SOURCE: mfc 440cn printer says 'ink empty' to new full ink cartridge

The usual obvious fix is to buy a new catridge, insert, power off machine, then switch back on to reset any sensors. But if the circuitry on the machine itself is faulty it wont fix it.

I used to own an MFC 260C. It had a perfectly good full ink catridge in it, that was working fine, until...it suddenly did not recognise the cartridge anymore.

I pulled the machine apart and found that 2 of the 4 sensors on the cct board at the back of the cartridge housing were loose. These sensors pass light through the exposed part of the cartridge to see if ink is there. So if these are faulty, you will never clear the "No Cartridge" or "Ink Empty..." or "Near Empty Ink ..." messages on the MFC260C and prbably other similar printers in the MFC range.

Why did they fail? Because the soldering on these sensors was poor quality.

I would never buy another Brother machine because of this, also because they design the machine to be totally useless unless all the ink ccartridges are full. Shame on you Brother, and kiss my *** for the $160 pile of junk I bought off you that was only on its second batch of cartridges (ie very little use)

HPpro L7600 works for about 6 pages then says replace black but black is new so reinsert and again works for about 6 pages then says replace magenta then repeats


try this. Clean the place were the ink goes into the printer. On the printer with running alchol and a qtip. Be real gental, and try and leave any residue or cotton on either place. Also, check and see if the cartridge reset itself. Sometimes you have to go into the program and reset it manualey. Sorry about the spelling errors, good luck and let me kknow if this helped!

Cartridge has no support


Please follow the steps below to fix cartridge issues:
  1. Make sure the printer is on.
  2. Open the printer cover. The print cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position, unless the All-In-One is busy. Note: If the carrier does not automatically move to the center, turn off the printer or unplug the printer from the power source and then carefully slide the carrier to the center.
  3. Remove both cartridges from the carrier.
  4. Close the printer cover.
  5. Re-brick your printer by pulling out the power supply - black box behind the printer where the power cord is plugged in to, and re-plug after 30 seconds.
  6. When the printer turns on, reinsert one cartridge first. Close the printer cover and check for any errors.
  7. If no error appears, reinsert the other cartridge. Close the printer cover.
  8. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the error to appear with a new genuine Lexmark cartridge. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

Ihave a Lexmark x5495 It says left cartrage incorect Its a genuine Lexmark cartrage


It could be just a slight communication problem between your cartridge and the printer. Try to remove the left cartridge from the printer > close the printer cover > unplug / re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it > when the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridge and then close the cover. If no error appears, try to print a document to verify that the problem is fixed.
You may also try to insert your old cartridge or a different known working cartridge to determine if it's a faulty cartridge issue.
If you still need assistance, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center.

Error message is Alignment Problem, but the cartridges have no clear tape on them...and have been printing with these cartridges for a while. They are not empty


Try to remove the cartridges from your printer. Check the cartridge area and make sure there are no debris or obstructions in the cartridge carrier path. Close the cover. Unplug and replug the printer into the power outlet to reset itself. When the printer turns on, reinsert one cartridge first. Close the cover and check for errors. If none, reinsert the other cartridge. Check for errors. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the error to appear. You may also try to insert a different known working cartridge to determine if the other is faulty.

My HP C5180 All-In-One printer says full ink cartridge is empty


Hi!

There are two ways to make your cartridge work again.

The first one will be basic....turn on the printer...remove the black cartridge from the printer.. using a moisten cloth, clean gently the contact terminal of the cartridge..after letting it air dry for a couple of seconds return the cartridge.. then try printing again..

The second one is to reset the ink cartridge.. how?

1. While your printer is on.. disconnect the usb cable from the back of your printer.
2. Remove the cartridges.
3. Wait until the message "Insert Cartridge" display on the control panel.
4. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the printer.
5. Wait for 60 seconds.
6. Plug the power cord at the back of the printer...If printer does not automatically on..press the "Power" button.
7. Reinsert the cartridge and close any open doors of the printer.
8. If prompted to Calibrate, do so..
9. Reconnect the usb at back of the printer...and try printing again..

After that you can print easily.

If you find this information helpful....Please rate this solution and vote on this on the YES below..thanks..

HP C6280 with new ink cartridges shows cartridges empty


First make sure you are placing the right
color cartridge into the right slot.
Most Printers are touchy about the
installation of ink cartridges. If the
instructions say to press the cartridge
into the slot until you hear a loud click,
that's what they mean. If at first you
don't succeed, remove the cartridge and
reinsert it into the slot again and press
on it hard till it clicks.
Then your printer should work properly.
Hope this is of some help. Bud

OfficeJet 9130 incorrectly reporting empty ink cartridge


Look to see if there is dirt or other debris inside the Magenta Ink slot. There is probably something there disrupting the ink flow. Use a flash light to see if ink is clogged. Use Acohol with Q tip to clean the area and reinsert the ink cartridge. Make sure the printer is off and the slot has dried before turning the printer back on.
Hope this helps. Helen

Blank Ink not pumping to print head


Turn off the device after removing the printhead After removing the printhead, turn off the device, wait about 20 seconds, and turn it on again without the printhead installed. After it has restarted, reinsert the printhead.

it will go through this long routine of perhaps 20 min or so. after its compleate it should print great.
