Printer wont recognize new ink cartridge

It called for more yellow. I replaced the yellow. It still calls for yellow.
I've tried wiping off the cartridge, I've re-started.

Any suggestions?

Few thing to try...
*Clean the cartridge head with dry or little alcohol damp cloth.
*Reinstall the cartridge.
*Run the head cleaning and liniment program that came with the printer.

this should help, if not it need to go to service center.

Hp office jet 5610 wont print colors correctly


Some printer software that detect ink levels won't recognize a cartridge that's been refilled. They treat the cartridge as empty although you've filled them with ink. You can try removing the HP software that pertains to the printing functions only (not the scanner abilities). You can also do a Power reset. Remove the printer cartridges, turn off the power, remove both the Power cord and USB cord (if applicable) for 10 minutes. After reconnecting the USB and power cords, install the cartridges as you normally would. The printer should treat them as new.

This might sound crazy but try this.

Switch the yellow and the magento cartridges out and try to print, it will error out again. Then switch them back to the proper slot. Try this first and it should work, if not, please reply back to me.

Colored refill ink cannot be recognized


It is called e5 error.
For Canon cartridges, after 4~5 refills, the color cartridge cannot be recognized by printer.

In this case...there is no solution so far...just replace with new cartridge.. that's it.
(To avoid e5 error, you need to make sure "plug out" the power, before take out your cartridge for refill. Yes... "plug out" the power cords!!!!

If you would like to save money, try refill kit by "ROADINK".
Not only they are easy, but also the printing quality is good.
For your better understanding pls check out my youtube video.
And will see how easy ink refill can be done.

I had the same problem with mine but I bought a refill cartridge instead of a new one and went through three refilled cartridges when I found that it was that I needed a brand new one. For some reason, the HP printers and some other printers need to know that you are using the same brand of ink as the printer. if it is another brand it wont except it and it wont let you print anything! So make sure it is a brand new hp brand ;)

Printer Wont print even with new ink


that means, 1 or more of the carts is showing low on ink or it might not being recognized. it might be the ink has a problem or the printer has a problem that it cant recognize the ink. try to Remove and reInstall Cartridges,
Press the nx200ug.1.106.4.jpg Stop button. The print head moves to the nx200ug.1.106.5.jpg position to indicate which cartridge is low or expended. Press the nx200ug.1.106.7.jpg Stop button again. If another cartridge is low or expended, the print head moves to the nx200ug.1.106.8.jpg position. Press the nx200ug.1.106.9.jpg Stop button again to see if more cartridges are expended. If no other cartridges are low or expended, the print head moves to the replacement position on the right. once you've identify w/c color has a problem, and removing and reinserting it does not resolve the issue, try another ink of that same color, if the issue persist, that means the printer is broken, call epson to get a replacement printer if it is with in 1 yr. from the date of purchase

I just replaced black ink cartridge and snapped all cartridges back in place and recharged the printer now it wont recognize the black ink cartridge even though it was just replaced


Try wiping the copper contacts on the new cartridge with a dustfree cloth dampened with some alcohol. Dry thoroughly before reinstalling.

Cyan ink cartridge is flashing, only prints in blue.


Hi cmwierson, I would suggest you update your printer drivers, try this, follow instructions exactly as written:

Create a new folder on your desktop and name it newhpdrivers(substitute your manufacturer in new name). Un-intall printer and printer software completely. Go to manufacturers website and navigate to their drivers/downloads or support menu. Select your model, choose the relevant software and download to the new folder you created on your desktop(watch for the light yellow bar at the top of window viewing pane, click on this and choose – download file - . Power down your computer. Reconnect the printer to the computer and turn printer on. Power on pc. Windows will detect new hardware and ask if you have the manufacturers install cd or a location to check for install files. Direct the wizard to your new software, follow the rest of the setup instructions and your done.

Display says I am out of yellow,


Hi, since you've already replace the yellow ink cartridge for several times and its not recognize. Your printer might have a defective printhead. You may take your printer to the nearest HP service center in your area so that they can look on your printer further.

2. Replace ink cartridge with a specified ink cartridge for your printer.
3. If above steps wont resolved that issue, please call your printer manufacture and ask for service referral or process warranty options.
