Ink Cartridge Problem!

I purchased a new print cartridge and installed it but now the printer won't operate. I've already checked to see if I inserted it properly which I have. What should I do now?

    That was the first thing I did! I just unplugged the printer and restarted it, and in the end it worked out. Thanks for the reply!

The printer's lying to me


The printer requires both cartridges to have ink before the printer will initialize and operational. Even if you are only printing black and white both cartridge have to contain ink or the printer will error out. This is standard on all ink jet printers from every manufacturer. You will have to get ink before you can print.

New ink cartridge in printer saying empty


Assuming you have a refilled or remanufactured cartridge there this is actually pretty normal. These cartridges have no means of checking for new ink in the cartridge so will continue to warn of empty. They will not however stop you from printing as a result.

If however you purchased the cartridge as a brand new cartridge, you may have been miss-sold the cartridge. In which case I would advise speaking to whoever it was purchased from.

Hp office jet 5610 wont print colors correctly


Some printer software that detect ink levels won't recognize a cartridge that's been refilled. They treat the cartridge as empty although you've filled them with ink. You can try removing the HP software that pertains to the printing functions only (not the scanner abilities). You can also do a Power reset. Remove the printer cartridges, turn off the power, remove both the Power cord and USB cord (if applicable) for 10 minutes. After reconnecting the USB and power cords, install the cartridges as you normally would. The printer should treat them as new.

The black ink on my Brother DCP-130C won't print and it's a brand new ink cartridge. I thought it was a defected cartridge so I bought another one, same thing. The other 3 colours print ok though....


I have the same problem. Everything on the printer is working just fine. It'll do a test page just fine, so everything's working right. The %$^ thing just won't print. It makes noise like it's printing when you give it a print job, but it spits out blank pages.

My epson DX8400 won't print yellow at all, green prints as blue, red prints pink on certain documents i've created. I have printed an email off today which printed all the colours perfectly??


In most cases the printer driver software can have errors while being in use or is shut down. So to reset remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and then connect the Printer to be detected as a new hardware as it will be installed. Now check the printer properties to see the ink levels.
Activate head cleaning before a test is taken . Sometimes it is possible that the head is not reacting to the need of the PC command or can be an issue with ink drying or poor ink cartridge contacts. Sometimes the power supply unit must be checked as a poor SMPS unit can deliver low voltage and cause issues to the printer function. Check all the leads and connections of the mother board , the tags to the ink cartridge. Also check the mechanical settings of the ink cartridge , if jammed or tight remove motor and manually free the drive before it is set back.

My printer keeps printing blank pages. I have cleaned the heads, re-started the printer, restarted the computer, checked all the cables and the problem persists.


You may need to purchase new ink cartridges and install new ink cartridges. take in the old ones into your computer store to make sure you get ink cartridges that will work in your make and model of printer.

If however you have already installed new cartridges then you will want to make sure that the plastic sticker that is some-times placed over the ink cartridge's contacts is removed.
Usually one will need to perform several deep clean cycles to get the ink to saturate the system and print well. Print test pages as you go.

Take care!

New tri-color cartridge has a problem. I can't see what.


I have an HP Photsmart C4100 printer. I purchased remanufactured ink cartridges (both black and tri-colored) from Vivasmart. The black one works fine, but when I installed the tri-color, I got an error message that says "Print cartridge problem" The following print cartridge has a problem:
Tri-color.
And I can't print. The screen on my printer says "Remove and check color cartridge." I have done this several times and it still won't print. I have turned off the power, removed the cartridges, and unplugged the unit, but it still didn't help. Any suggestions?
