I installed new cartridges (Lexmark brank both black and color) and my printer won't work now.


A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer from your computer (if USB connected)> reboot your pc > unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer (if USB connected). Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection or when the WiFi light on the printer turns solid green (if WiFi connected.).


If that doesn't help, try the steps below:

  1. Disconnect the USB cable connecting the printer from your computer.
  2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.
  3. Delete the Lexmark print object.
  4. Reboot computer.
  5. Re-brick your printer by pulling out the power supply - black box where the power cord is plugged into on the back of the printer, and re-plug after 30 seconds.
  6. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to the computer.
  7. Wait until your computer fully recognizes the USB connection. To check, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes. If you see a new Lexmark print object in the list, try to print a document to verify that the problem is fixed.

My computer is telling me I need to install an ink cartridge even though I just replaced it.


This could either be a slight communication problem between your printer and your computer or a communication issue between one of your cartridges and the printer. Please follow the steps below to fix the problem:
  1. Reboot your computer.
  2. If usb-connected, disconnect the printer from your computer.
  3. Open the printer cover and remove the cartridges. Note: If the carrier does not automatically move to the center, turn off the printer/unplug the printer from the power source and then slide the carrier to the center to remove the cartridges.
  4. Close the cover.
  5. Rebrick the printer (pull out the power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds).
  6. When the printer turns on, reinsert one cartridge first and close the cover. Check for any errors.
  7. Reinsert the other cartridge and check for any errors again.
  8. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the error to appear with a new cartridge or with a different known working cartridge.
  9. If usb-connected, reconnect the USB cable to your computer.
  10. Try to print from your computer to verify that the problem is fixed.
I hope this information has been helpful.

Printer will NOT print black. Have replaced the cartridges twice. Turned computer & printer off & rebooted. Nothing! Can yu help?


Simple answer to this (and I'm sorry you won't like this)...

Replace your printhead but first, check the warranty date on the printhead and then call HP support and ask politely/firmly for a replacement.

HP are well aware of issues with the black part of the HP88 printhead (the one used by the L7000 series MFD) and shouldn't argue too much.

Printer won't read cartridge


If you have tried multiple cartridges and it still does not read the cartridges, then it is time to replace the printer.  The 920 is an older printer and has done good to work this long.

Try reset the printer. Turn off powerswitch, press gobutton, turn on powerswitch while pressing gobutton. hold approx 15sec and release the button. The printer will reboot. Clean the cartridge contacts and HV pins in printer.

Ink Cartridge Problem


TRY THIS FIRST!!!! it is the easiest and works everytime for me. Just unplugg it. I read somewhere, probably here, to do this. Actually pull the power plug out, not just turn off. I also took out the connnection plug to the computer for extra measues. Wait a few minutes then plug everything back in and turn on. It is like a computer rebooting. The printer will reinitalize itself and do a systems check. All the cartridges were recognized and the inkloads were correct. Had the same problem when I change the Black. Unplugged everything, and then perfect. I really like this multi function printer. it is the best for the money, cartridges are individual and cheaper then others. So if I need to just unplug every now and then not a big deal.

oh, I have always only used Brother cartridges, so I do not think it is cartridge problem. Before doing the tape just try this first. Wish I would have known about this solution with my previous one which obviously I threw away and did not have to.

Printer not working!


Usually black is provided by the black cartridge only. You might be able to setup the printer through the control panel using black and white printing until the color cartridge is replaced. That might turn the color cartridge off allowing you to print.

Color cartridge


Turn off and unplug your printer from the wall for a few minutes. Plug it back in and turn it on? If that doesn't work, remove the color ink and make sure the contacts on the cartridge are not smudged, reinsert the ink. If that didn't work re-install the old color cartridge and reboot the computer then try to change to the new color. Let me know what happens, Good Luck, Tim

Printing Problems


My compaq ij300 was doing the same thing. I removed the cartridge, took a kleenex and wiped the back of the cartridge until it was completely dry and shiny looking...until no more ink would come off on the kleenex. Replaced the cartridge and aligned it using the printing software. I didn't use the test page, just typed a one-line document and hit Print. That took care of the problem.
