Printer Cartridge Leaked

I have a 2600 Laser Jet Printer. Apparently, the bottom ink cartridge (Magenta) sprung a leak and now the belt (attached to back of door) is covered in red ink and all my pages come out splotchy red. What would be the steps needed to fix this?

I have a photosmart c8180 all in one and hade a problem where i had to recalibrate reset it got it working then tried to do align printer head and it leaked ink (magenta) every where

That suggests that either the magenta cartridge or more likely a pipe is punctured.

If changing the cartridge does nothing you need to call a service agent

Magenta cartridge leaked for some unknown reason. when we replaced it, it says the new cartridge is empty. Please help.


My friend the cartridge which leaked earlier has spilled ink in side on the contacts of the printer where the smart chip comes in contact. Try to clean well with a tissue paper and try to insert slowly into the printer and this will solve the problem.

If not then carefully remove the smart chip from the old one and replace it with the new and install back in the printer.

Take care.

Keeps asking for ink and it has ink

Try removing, and then reseating the MAGENTA cartridge.

If you replace the MAGENTA toner-cartridge, does the problem go away?

The light for the magenta cartridge on my iP3500 printer goes off

The cartridge, as well as all ink jet cartridges has a chip inside that tells it how much ink is in the cartridge. Your cartridge is LYING, except it prevents you from printing without all cartridges working. ( same for my 6 color epson ). You need to replace the cartridge. I get my cartridges at a yahoo store called Inks4less. They have good quality for cheap.

There was a study done, analizing the amount of inks left in inkjet cartridges when they indicated empty, and the range was 7% to 25% ink still left.

Canon LBP5000 lack of Red (magenta)

Searched on web for same problem on HP2600 printer and found a sight that explained how to fix it. It is caused by the mirrors getting dirty. Magenta is the first one affected because it is on the bottom and points upwards. Requires printer to be pulled apart and mirrors cleaned. takes about 1 to 2 hours. HP2600 printer seems to be the same as Canon LBP5000.

Cartridge? problem

If you are using or have used third party generic ink cartridges or refilled ink cartridges, the Cartridge Sensor printed circuit board may have been damaged. We have found that some third party generic ink cartridges leak onto the ink cartridge sensor circuit board causing an electrical short of the ink cartridge sensors. The damage from the leaked ink results in the machine displaying NO CARTRIDGE because the machine will no longer recognize the installed ink cartridge(s). Genuine Brother ink cartridges do not cause this issue because of the unique design developed to fit specifically in the Brother products. As long as a Brother cartridge has not been refilled, the Brother cartridge will not leak.

MFC-240C colr problem

No. Just buy original carts and install them. Run the manual cleaning procedure twice. Wait overnight and repeat the manual cleaning again. Should work. (..and give the compatible ones a dump)

Replacing NON Manufactored ink cartridges in EPSON PHOTOS STYLUS R380

I had the same problem, was tired of Spending $100 / refill - so I tried a set of Generics that were "Guaranteed" to work - well - they didn't. Apparently Epson changes the programming on the ROM on the actual ink cartridge - and if you buy an older generic cartridge it will not work if you have a newer printer - as the ROM coding is incorrect.

I do however, have a solution - that I found works. Continuous Ink Systems. I went to Super Jet USA ( - and purchased their continuous ink system. I think it was 60 bux and it comes with 100ml of ink in each color + 18 ml in each continuous cartridge (so 118ml in total for each color) (Regular cartridges only have 18 ml). So the equivelant of just over 6 refills... Normally - 6 sets of Epson (rip off super high price make someone rich) cartridges would cost me roughly $720.00 with taxes and what not.

This system Cost me 60 bux + shipping.

Now I am not a mathamatician, a numerologist, or anyone who things long division is fun (thats just sick) - but I dont think it takes a genius to see this is one TERRIFIC deal.

And yes - The system works PERFECTLY in my Epson R380 Printer - first try - no fuss - no muss - Extremely happy I tried this solution

NOTE: I do not work for, or am in any association with Superjetusa - I just think when you find a company that is good to deal with, delivers what they promise, and gives you a good price - then you should tell the world.
