My suggestion: Don't buy HP. I have the same region coding problem. All I want to do is buy HP ink, put it in my HP printer and print stuff. Too hard. I've wasted 30 pounds on ink and another 30 pounds on "support" phone calls to HP. Hopeless. I will never buy HP again. Waste of time and money.

SOURCE: epson stylus cx8400 cannot recognize ink cartridges

I had the same problem except it would not recognize any of the ink cartridges. I kept hitting the OK button over and over again with the same cartridges in place not removing them at all and it finally recognized them. Decided to go to maintenance on the printer to do a test, and it went right back to not recognizing the cartridges. So i pressed the OK button over and over again until it finally recognized all the cartridges again, but this time i did not try and go into the maintenance to do a test run. Plugged it up to the computer and it has been working ever since. So press the OK button until it recognizes the cartridges, and run no tests on it is what my solution was for the problem. Really is a pain but it works now.

The sensor is probably stuck, and it took me a few minutes to fix!!

Good luck...

There's no sensor, it's just a spring and a plastic wedge thing.

Using a #10 torx driver, remove two screws holding the right-hand side panel from the printer. (one in the back, one on top underneath the ink access door.) Unsnap it and set it aside.

Disconnect 3 small ribbon cables and one 5-pin connector that lead from the printer to the access door/scanner.

Remove the lid from the flatbed, then remove the access door from it's hinges. Use the torx driver and unscrew the hinges from the main scanner body.

Lift the hinge assembly from the scanner and push the steel pin out, seperating the two parts of the hinge.

From there you should be able to loosen them up, remove the springs, lubricate them, or find whatever the problem is.

Reassemble and you're done.

Not sensing the ink cartridge


In this scenario you should check with a new set of black cart or you can try by cleaning the cart with a lint free cloth. and try with resetting the printer as well. if it doesnt work then printer might have gone bad

Ink cartridge not recognized


First, I would try to remove both of the cartridges, close printer, power down, and remove power cord and let sit for 5 minutes. Reconnect, reinstall the carts, and see if problem still occurs. Otherwise, I would also go to this link and select "check to see if I have the latest drivers" at the top of the page and update your software. Also, if you have another color cart, switching it with a new one would also be an easy step to see if it is just a cart issue.

Printer Designjet 110 Plus not working


Ink supplies Description HP part number 11 Black Printhead C4810A 11 Cyan Printhead C4811A 11 Magenta Printhead C4812A 11 Yellow Printhead C4813A 10 Black Ink Cartridge C4844A 82 Cyan Ink Cartridge C4911A 82 Magenta Ink Cartridge C4912A 82 Yellow Ink Cartridge C4913A
alot of printers now if the ink in the cartidge is the first ones placed in the system from the box are those that are only half full if not less depending on the maker but I know HP only fills their cartidges only just under the half way make but the printer sees it as a new cartrige because of the chips programming.

Have you tryed to turn the power of and let is sit for about 5 mins and turn it back on with the same result? (ushally a yellow error light is on)

Also if you can find the settings to only print in black and white on the printers properties that might also work as well for a temp fix.

But ushally once one ink runs out it likes to do that you where correct with the "is it because of the finished color cartidges.." either that or the carts all have finally expired.

Nice printer by the way.

But your best way to do it would be to replace the color carts and if not reasonable to do now there is also a way to reset the color carts so that the printer thinks that there is ink in them as well.

hope this helps you a bit if you need more info please let us know.

Printer Door


Hi,

I have that exact problem at work. There is a bump on the right side of the lid...and when you close the lid it presses on a lever. Check and see that the bump actually pushes that lever downwards. That's how the printer determines that it's closed.
