Re: error in cartridge

Refilling cartridges sometimes damages electrical circuitry on the inside end of the cartridge. Carefully clean- barely touching the wires, then restart printer and then install the cartridge again. If you went out and bought new cartridges, make sure to reset the printer before expecting the error message to go away. This is why they recommend NOT refilling more than a few times per cartridge- the electronics wear out.

Re: error in cartridge

Check to see if you are using the correct cartridges for your printer. Look in pc manual for printer or the paper manual that should have come with your printer. Post back if this did not help.

The red triangle light with the "!" in it keeps flashing. I've just printed some things off but now it's not printing. Need it to print obviously..

ATTENTION light(triangle): Indicates that the print-cartridge door is open, print cartridge is missing, and other errors.

If ATTENTION and READY light is blinking:

Printer initialization
The printer is initializing.
No action is necessary.

Cleaning mode
A cleaning page is printing.
Wait until the cleaning page has finished and the printer is in the Ready state.
This could take up to two minutes.

If ATTENTION and READY light is on:

Fatal error
Turn off the printer, and then unplug the printer power cord for 30 minutes.
Plug the printer power cord into the power outlet, and then turn the printer on.
If the error persists, replace the printer.

If ATTENTION light is blinking and READY light is off:

  1. Attention: door open, no print cartridge, or media jam
The printer is in an error state that requires operator intervention.
Check the following:
? The print cartridge door must be completely closed.
? The print cartridge is correctly installed.
? There is no media jam.

2. Out of memoryThe printer is out of memory.
The page you are printing might be too complex for the printer's memory capacity.
Try lowering the resolution.

I have the same problem but mine is with a canon mp190. also says E5 error on lcd and 2,114,0 eror when i try and scan. what can i do

According the Canon the error code means this:

E, 4/ E, 5 The FINE Cartridge cannot be recognized

The FINE Cartridge may not be installed properly, or the Cartridge may not be compatible with this machine. Open the Scanning Unit (Cover), and then make sure that the FINE Cartridges are installed properly and that the installed FINE cartridges are compatible with the machine.
If the error is not resolved, the Print Head may be damaged. Contact your Canon Service representative.
The "fine cartridge" means the black printing cartridge. The black should be installed on the left and the color on the right.

Double check to make sure your cartridges are installed on the correct sides.

After verifying that they are on the appropriate sides, then turn off your printer and unplug it from the power source.

Remove and reinstall the black cartridge.

Plug the printer back in and turn it on. If the error code is still there, press the menu button and scroll using the arrows until you see the "maintenance" area on your printers display. Then press enter or "ok". Continue scrolling until you find the "clean print heads" function and then again press enter or "ok" Follow the instructions and clean the print heads at least two times.

If the cartridge is full and installed correctly, the according to Canon the print heads have trapped old ink in them and this could be cloggin the ink flow. Cleaning the print heads should solve that problem. If you still get the error code after cleaning the print heads a couple times then I suggest contacting Canon for a possible warranty repair.

Good luck!

HP printer PSC 1410 ALL in one printer showing "Check print cartridge" error

This eror usually mean that the printer cartridge has not been installed correctly. Try re-installing the cartridge. This error can also be generated by a logic fault within the printer.. if this is the case, replace the printer.. trying another new cartridge can be expensive so try and get a second hand cartridge, maybe from a friend and try that one.. Otherwise, replace the printer..

Error: ''Wrong Cartridge'' when no new cartridge has been installed

It is probably one of the cartridges. Usually, when the message "wrong cartridge" appears, the cartridge is faulty.

Eror 31 in lexmark e350d

Error code 31 is displayed when the top front cover is closed and a defective print cartridge is detected. It may take the printer 10-20 seconds to determine if the print cartridge is defective.

Replace and reinstall the defective toner cartridge.

Printer wont recognise new colour cartridge

most common, is there is a tiny piece of lint or paper shred, has worked its way between the ink cartridge and the print carrieage connectors,
take the cartridges out and wipe down the connectors on the cartridge and carriage with a lint free cloth or lens brush
Isopropyl alcohol is a good residue free cleaning fluid,
if no all the connectors answer, the printer assumes a wrong cartridge

not a guarantee, just something to try
