Canon printer won't recognize new ink cartridge


did you take the shipping tape off of the cartridge? It's usually the one covering the contacts located on the underside of the Cartridge that is inserted into the receiver of the cartridge. Other wise, you may have a bad cartridge, if so, bring it back to where you purchased it and get another one. Chris Chrisab123@live.com

HPC3180 PhotoSmart printer - works great - I use brand X ink cartridges, and they work fine. But I just formatted my computer and downloaded the latest HP driver and software. My printer just ran out of...


Not Familiar with brand "X".. Know about brand "X" washing powder anmd "DAZ". I take it is not the same.

OH! I hate the words "Just Formatted My Computer". Ypou have actual answered your own question, please please say you have the "OLD PRINTER PROG" or a copy lurking on a long forgotten copy CD?

Yes! it will be trial and error, reload the old version of your printer. New updates sometimes leave out differant suppliers and their progs, infact they may have fallen out, we will never know.

As a matter of interest, reinsert the old cartridge and see if it sees that though empty, then if fails to see that you have your answer.

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 have a two year old printer not recognizing the cartridge. The print keeps saying "INSTALL BLACK CARTRIDGE". I bought a brand new cartridge and it is not recognizing it. What should I do


You arn't clear whether this message appeared with the old toner cartridge or just with the new cartridge.
If this message just appeared with the new cartridge and not the old one, take it back and get a replacement cartridge.
If the message also appeared with the old cartridge, the printer has a problem with the drum ground connector on the high voltage power supply.

Hp officejet v40 won't recognize new cartridge


Hello,

Your printer may need to be reset.

* Turn on your printer and re-install the old empty printer cartridges

* Wait for the printer to finish its cycle for recognizing the printer cartridge.

* Turn off your printer and unplug it from the power source.

* Clean your printer head and the electrical connections of the new printer cartridge. Be careful if you have already tried to install this prior since the ink may run.

* Plug back the printer into the power source and turn on the printer.

* After the printer has warmed up, do the normal process of installing your new printer cartridge.

If this doesn't work, it could be that the printer cartridge is faulty. Take the printer cartridge, its box and the receipt to the office supplies store or computer store where you purchased this and ask for a replacement, explaining the problem.

I hope this helps.

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.

Hi there
There are only a few steps you need to do to reset a Brother printer ink cartridge and once you do it, you will be up and printing in no time. There are actually two things that a Brother printer uses to detect ink and you can manipulate one or the other.
Instructions
Things You'll Need: · Black electrical tape, masking tape or duct tape
1. Step 1
Identify the printer If your printer uses memory, you can tell which printer you have by looking at where the cartridge goes in, if you see two "eyes" and a part of the cartridge goes in between them, follow Step 3. Otherwise, continue with Step 2.
2. Step 2
Clear the memory by taking the cartridge out and unplugging the unit for 30 seconds. Then, plug it back in and put back in the cartridge. You may need to do this five times, as the memory holds the last five cartridges.
3. Step 3
If the Brother printer has "eyes" where the cartridge goes, you will need to block in between them with a piece of tape so that it thinks the cartridge is always full. Simply put a piece of tape on the piece of the cartridge that goes in between the eyes to block the path of the infrared beam

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Printer cannot find new black cartridge. Left cartridge missing.


The electronics are bad on your compatible and your printer can't recognize it's there. Return this cartridge and get your money back. The next cartridge you buy, ask if the electronics have been tested to be functional. I recommend refils from Cartridge World or Office Depot.
