Replaced new color cartridge and now printer will not print color

Removed tape from new cartridge and placed in printer. Printer recognized new cartridge and refuses to print any color at all. Heads have been cleaned with no results. Color cartridge was wiped with Q-tip and had ink in tip so I know the ink is there.

Try these steps if this fails then get the cart exchanged as Lexmark cart comes with 6 months warranty in it :


# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
# Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
# Continue doing this until it looks clean.
# Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
# Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.

1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.

# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer.

Make sure you are using the correct version of cartridges for your model. Open the printer cover and remove the cartridges. Close the cover. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reinsert one cartridge first. Close the cover and check for any errors. If none, reinsert your other cartridge. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the error to appear. Or you can try to insert a different known working cartridge to determine if the other is faulty.

How to Reset an HP Inkjet Cartridge
Hi there
Instructions
Things You'll Need:
Adhesive tape

HP inkjet cartridge can be refilled easily, getting it to work again in the printer is another matter.
The contacts on the back of the cartridge are programmed to read the ink level, but they don't reset for the printer just because you add more ink.
You must get the printer to recognize the cartridge as new.
You can do this easily if you have two other old cartridges, or you can manipulate the contacts on the refilled cartridge.


Step 1
Insert the cartridge you refilled into the HP Printer.
Have the printer print an alignment page, thus recognizing the cartridge. The printer will still read the ink level as where it was before you refilled it.
Step 2
Remove the cartridge from the printer and replace it with another old cartridge.
Have the printer print an alignment page with this cartridge so it recognizes it as a different cartridge from the first one.
Step 3
Replace the second cartridge with a third one and run the same alignment page.
Because the printer only retains the memory of two Print Cartridges, it will erase the memory of the first (refilled) cartridge.
Step 4
Insert the refilled cartridge into the printer.
The printer will now recognize the cartridge as being full.

Next Steps
Step 1
Tape over the contact squares on the top left corner of the cartridge's contacts. Insert the cartridge into the printer and run an alignment page. Ignore any messages that might appear saying there is a problem with the cartridge.
Step 2
Take the cartridge out of the printer. Remove the tape from the left corner and tape over the contact squares on the top right corner. Place the cartridge backs in and run another alignment page.
Step 3
Remove and reinsert the cartridge, this time with no tape on any of the contacts. Check to see if the printer recognizes the cartridge as being full.
Step 4
Repeat the above steps if the cartridge is still shown as being empty.
This time, use the bottom corner contact squares instead of the top ones. If you are still unable to reset the cartridges, using multiple cartridges is likely the only way to do it.
jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); }); All I ask is to call back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one, so I will keep on helping.

Cant figure out how to put in the ink cartridges


Hi there,
Procedure for replacing Cartridge
When FIne Cartridges run out of ink, replace them. using the following steps.

*Important
Handling Fine Cartridges
-Once the protective tape is removed, do not touch the electrical contacts or Print Head Nozzles on a FINE Cartridge. The printer may not print out properly if you touch it.
-To maintain optimal printing quality, we recommendthe use of specified Canon brand FINE Cartridges.
Refilling is not recommended.
-Once you remove a FINE Cartridge, replace it immediately. Do not leave the printer with the FINE Cartridge removed.
-Replace empty cartridges with new ones. If you insert FINE Cartidges that has been removed once, the printer may not print properly due to some reasons such as clogging of the nozzles. Furthermore, with such cartridges, tlhe Low ink warning may not be displayed properly.
-Once a FINE cartridge is installed, do not remove it from the printer and leave it out in the open. This will cause the FINE Cartridge to dry out., and the printer may not operate properly when it is reinstalled. To maintain optimal print quality, use a FINE Cartridge within 6 months of first use.
-Color ink may be consumed even when printing a black and white document or when black and white printing is specified.
Color ink is also consumed in Print Head Cleaning and Print Head Deep Cleaning, which may be necessary to maintain the printer's performance.

1) Make sure that the printer is on, and then open the Front Cover.
The FINE cartridge Holder move to the left.
Cautuion : * Do not hold the FINE cartridge Holder to stop or move it.

-Be careful not to stain your clothes and hands with the ink on the removed protective tape/

4) Install the FINE Cartridges.
a) Insert a new FINE Cartridge all the way into the appropriate slot. The Black FINE Cartridge should be installed into the left slot and the Color FINE Cartrige should be into the right slot.
b) Push up the FINE Cartridges until it clicks into the place.

Dell 922 won't print black ink... only uses color cartridge... I can't find selection to use black ink only. The checkbox for print black n white for color is grayed out... Cartridge levels show black ink...


Perhaps the printer does not recognize that a mono/black cartridge is installed. Remove the mono cartridge and check to see that tape is removed then re-seat firmly. Unplug the printer from wall power to reset. Then try again.

X1270 NO COLOR PRINTING


I know what you mean by an inexpensive printer. The cartridges cost more than the printers! A simple, but often overlooked solution is to make sure that the tape protecting the bottom of the cartridge has been removed. Check that and let me know the results.

Please check :-
Protective tape on a new ink cartridge has been removed. Contacts on the ink cartridge are not meeting the contacts in the carriage correctly.

Then try and do a head clean and printer head alignment.
