My ink cartridge holder won't come across and won't allow me to change the inks??

You have to do the maintenance trigger. Press and hold the power and key for few seconds and the ink cartridges will come to the center.
Also you can power off and use a manual turning of the motor drive to bring the ink cartridges to the center but is so you must reinstall the drivers after un installing keeping the printer powered off from the PC.

I have an HP Photosmart A526 printer. I have tried 2 new cartridges and neither print yellow. I thought it was a fault with the cartridges but now think it may be the printer. I have aligned and...


There are two possible malfunctioning in this case.
  • Issue with the cartridge.
  • Issue with the printer.
Its better if we start resolving this issue linearly and logically first by following these steps as given in the manual on the following link.
Please click here:
Missing, Faded, or Dull ColorsIf the above doesn't help, we might try a printer reset to bring it back to the default print settings and configuration.

Performing a Partial Reset
  1. Disconnect any universal serial bus (USB) cables attached to the printer.
  2. Open the print cartridge door and remove the print cartridge.
  3. Close the print cartridge door
  4. Press the Power button to turn the printer off and wait for the printer to shut down before proceeding to the next step.
  5. Unplug the printer AC adapter from the printer and the wall outlet or surge protector.
    NOTE: The adapter itself has an overload trip that may need resetting, but will not reset if power is flowing to it.
  • Wait approximately fifteen to forty-five seconds and proceed to the next step.
  • Plug the AC adapter back into the wall outlet, and then into the printer, but do not plug in the USB cable.
  • Wait for the appropriate missing print cartridge error to verify that the printer can recognize this error.
  • Open the print cartridge door and re-insert the ink cartridge.
  • Print an internal test page.
    1. Remove any memory card, if inserted.
    2. Use the arrows (c01070297.jpg ) to highlight Print test page .
    3. Press Print to begin printing a test page.
    This is how the Test Page looks like:

    If still the printer is not printing the way it should, we might think of going for a HARD RESET by following the steps below:

    Performing a hard reset of the printer
    1. Unplug the power cable from the back of the product.
    2. Unplug the power cable from the electrical outlet.
    3. Wait 15 seconds.
    4. Reconnect the power cable into the product and then reconnect the power cable into the electrical outlet.
    5. If the product does not turn on, press the On button.

    This should bring the printer back to normal.

    Wish you luck.

    All the lights are flashing. I have put in a new cartridge, unplugged and turned off the machine, I cleaned it with the air duster. It will not work

    Try the following tricks:
    Disconnect any USB cables attached to the printer and remove any memory cards from drive bay. Restart the computer. Unlock the ink cartridge locking clips. Remove all ink cartridges. Lock down the ink cartridge locking clips. Close the main printer door Turn the printer off with the Power button and wait for the printer to shut down. Unplug the printer AC adapter from the printer and the wall outlet or surge protector. Wait approximately fifteen to forty-five seconds to allow all current to dissipate from printer. Re-plug only the AC adapter into the wall outlet then into the printer, but do not plug in the USB cable. Wait for the appropriate missing ink cartridge error to verify that printer can recognize this error. Re-insert one ink cartridge only, to minimize confusion in case one of the cartridges is defective, and print an internal test page. If no errors are found, insert the other ink cartridge(s) and ensure that they are functioning by performing internal test pages or calibration pages. If an error occurs due to a defective cartridge, perform the appropriate steps for Resolving Ink Cartridge Rejections. After returning to the main Windows screen, reconnect the USB cable to the computer then to the printer. Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa.

    I had cartridges refilled and replaced in my 7150. The cartridge light is blinking as if there are no cartridges there or no ink exists. will not print

    Forgive me for asking this, but roughly speaking about 80 to 85% of problems involving ink or toner are resolved by the following:
    Are you using a manufacturer’s factory new ink cartridge or toner?
    If you are using a refilled (worst possible choice) cartridge, toner or ink, or third party cartridge (2nd. worst possible choice) that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
    They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
    If you are using the manufacturer’s new ink cartridges, then please contact their technical support group. Factory new cartridges usually have warranties on them.

    Change all ink problem

    1- powering off the printer and leaving it for 30 sec. then powering back on... test
    2- power off, open the cage, move cartridge caddy to center to remove cartridges... clean cartridges nozzles with a damp cloth, clean cartridge connectors as well as cart caddy connectors with a soft cloth.. no water. re test by replacing the cartridges and powering on the printer.

    if the operator still has the message. power of, try with 1 cartridge at a time, turn on printer and try to COPY any document...

    if all of that is still failing, then as the Lexmark rep told me, i'm sorry for any inconvenience this brings you, you have a defective printer.
