I'm assuming that the cartridge is a remanufactured item (or a home refilled item.

The chip on the cartridge probably hasn't been changed.

Did you replace the tri-colour ink-cartridge, or did you replace the print-head mechanism?

Are you sure that the CYAN part of the ink-cartridge is not empty?

I have a dell 2130cn, the cyan cartridge needs to be replaced, why can't I print


It appears on some forums that this is a common issue with this printer, and looks to be a limitation of the unit. It will not print with one of the toners empty until you replace that empty toner.

The Cyan Toner Cartridge is either not seated correctly or the cartridge is bad. Open the front of the printer, pull out the Cyan Toner Cartridge, reseat making sure it fits all the way to the back.

If the problem is not resolved replace the Cyan Toner Cartridge.

maybe the cartridge is wrong, release it and clean the electrical contacts, put them again one by one, if notting happen, try this
Solution As the printer operates, it moves ink from the ink cartridges into a printhead reservoir. The printer does not deliver a message when an ink cartridge goes empty, because it still has ink in the reservoir. The printer continues printing until the ink level in the reservoir falls to a first trigger point - then a message appears advising the printer owner to Replace Cartridges Soon . At this point, other cartridges that are empty but have not reached the trigger point are also mentioned in the message, to save trips to the retailer. After the first trigger point, the printer can continue printing until ink levels in the reservoir reach a second trigger point. At the second trigger point there is only enough ink left to perform vital servicing tasks, and a new message appears, saying Ink Cartridges Empty . The options offered depend on the usable inks remaining. If no options are offered, the cartridges indicated must be replaced before printing can continue. The Ink Cartridges Empty options are described in the table below: Ink colors out Option Print mode possible All Cancel None Black

AND

Cyan, Magenta, or Yellow (any or all) Black only Continue with other colors Cyan/Magenta/Yellow mode (composite black)

Text and photo quality will differ from those printed when all colors are available Light Cyan or Light Magenta (either or both) Cyan, Magenta, or Yellow (any or all)

(Black still available) Print with black ink only Grayscale

Minolta 2430dl, cyan, magenta, and yellow toner cartridges all show empty. Black shows 42% remaining. How do I get printer to print?


Some printers will refuse to print _anything_, until you replace/refill _all_ of the empty toner cartridges. So, replace/refill.

My cyan cartridge shows as empty. My black


No. You need all the cartridges installed with functioning chips for your printer to work. The reason why you need all the colors when all you print is black is because a small amount of color prints when you print black. The manufacturers want to make up their R&D costs on the printers by selling lots of expensive ink.

Show empty or not recognized (cross sign)? Check connector at chip and at head carriage. Do replacement procedure form status monitor (how to..). Do replacement ink tank one by one with cyan ink first.

Hi I have a dell laser printer 3115cn, I changed the cyan cartridge and now I have small blue dots on one side of my copy. What should I do? Thanks Dora


Its probably a faulty, or badly remanufactured cartridge. If you still have the old cartridge, provided it wasn't fully used (according to the cartridge 'chip'), put it back in and if printing is OK, it IS the 'new' cartridge.
