Check ink cartridge

Purchased new HP print cartridge 3 weeks ago and was working great until today. It stopped printing, was printing address on envelope, and says CHECK INK CARTRIDGE. Pulled ink cartridge and reinserted and the error still shows and can't shut off printer unless pull 120 v plug. Checked inside printer for paper jam and nothing shows. Should I uninstall printer and reinstall?

    I ptu in a new ink cartridge after it said to check it because the old was kinda empty. Bu then the printer seemed to reject the new because it wouldn't register and I couldn't turn it off unless I unplug it. But when i put the old ones back in it works but the print quality is of course low.

Your ink cartridges could be dried up or empty, even if they are new.

I have a new HP TriColor Cartridge and my printer will not print anything except black. Also have a flashingterdrop light on left side. What is the cure?


Hi. it actually sounds like something is not contacting with the cartridge. remove the cartridge and inspect the contacts inside the printer, the ones that touch the front of the colour cartridge, for dry ink, dirt or dust, use a cotton bud dipped in boiling hot water to remove any ink on the contacts, make sure the printer is off before doing this any make sure no water is left inside when you switch it back on.
I hope this helpsRegards

I have an HP 2140 fax purchased one year ago. I have never replaced the catridge and have used the fax about once a month. Today I am trying to copy and it won't print. I cleaned the nozzle and still...


New cartridge wouldnt print but sounded like it was printing. You can check ink levels clean or align cartridge by pushing menu then tools. I cleaned contact points w qtip and alcohol. What seemed to work is putting alcohol on cartridge where ink is released and putting back into machine wet did this three times first time little dots of ink then a faint print and now it is printing must have been dried ink further then I could access.

Failure of Printer to Print Color


Try using a new HP ink cartridge. I had the same problem with a printer I purchased off of CraigsList even though the ink level was good. I installed a new color HP ink cartridge and it printed without a problem.

It keeps telling me to remove and check cartridge


I also have this same problem. I currently have refilled cartridges in there purchased from cartridge world. I never had any problems with my HP until i tried refilled cartridges for the first time about 6 months ago. When i first purchased a refilled cart. it took 3 trips back to the store until i got one that would work in my HP. so im wondering if this is why i am now getting this "remove and check cartridge" error message.? I am reluctant to go out and buy a new HP ink cartridge just to find out ill have the same problem....

New Ink cartridges registering as empty ...


Is it an HP printer? We had the same problem at work with print cartridges purchased at Staples. They have a major quality control problem. Your new print cartridge may be empty or dried out (died on the shelf). It's my problem at work, as I have over 80 HP deskjets, and Purchasing still insists on buying the Staples cartridges rather than the HP.

Sometimes if you shake a print cartridge really hard it may correct the problem. However, I would buy or borrow a black HP print cartridge and try it out in your printer. Works almost every time on the job. Good luck.

Ink cartridge error


Check the date on your ink cartridge.  I bet it has expired.  If you put in a "new"cartridge but it is even an HP one with an older date, it may not work.
I had my printer stop in the middle of a print job.  It was printing fine and suddenly would not print.  So I refilled the cartridge with an ink kit I had on hand and reinserted it--no go!  Then I opened a remanufactured cartridge I had bought some time ago and inserted it.  No go, despite the fact I could see ink coming from the jets.  I finally gave up and bought a new HP ink cartridge, and it worked just fine.  But it bugged me why the new one would work and the other two that seemed just fine would not.

Later I learned that HP has a chip that reads the expiration date on the cartridges and that is what keeps those old ones from printing.  I found one trick of setting my date on my computer back to a year earlier than the exp date on the cartridge.  I saw the date on the remanufactured one I had tried earlier was 2005, so I set my computer date to today's date but year 2004.  After forcing me to do print alignments several times and take the remanufactured cartridge out and put it back, I got it to print just fine.  And that 2005 cartridge that would not work earlier is what I am printing with right now.

HP 1350V all-in-one


Hi, You need to get a new ink cartridge. It is really not recommended to refill ink cartridges but if you do then it is advisable not to exceed 3 times because it could damage the printer head. If the new inks still gives error, then your printer head may need to be checked to see if it needs replacing. Good luck!
