Did you use original carts? In case your carts are third party ones, this is a common problem due to diffrent construction of the carts. Disconnect mfc from power (unplug!). Open cover, take carts out. Wait two minutes. Reconnect (plug in) mfc to power. mfc demands carts. Place the carts right back. mfc should start cleaning. In case you are asked if carts are replaced push yes (1). Set date and hour again (and faxnr. etc)... http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public/us/us/en/faq/faq_list.html?reg=us&c=us&lang=en&prod=mfc420cn_us&Cat=16

Computer cannot communicate with printer


Check if your printer is up to date. Just go to http://bit.ly/ghfW8H to download the firmware update.

Also, make sure that you're using genuine Lexmark cartridges. If there's an error message on your screen that your black ink is low even if you replaced it, you won't be able to print or scan. It will send a busy signal or communication not available to your computer. If this is the case, replace the cartridge.

If it still doesn't work work, try to reinstall the software: http://bit.ly/d3ftso

Yellow won't print


First try to replace the yellow toner cartridge. After that, try re-seating the cartridge (take out the cartridge and place it back in carefully making sure it is seated correctly). If this does not resolve the issue, clean the print heads and connections on the cartridge. This can be done by removing the cartridge and swabbing the connections with a Q-tip dipped in rubbing alcohol. Also, while the cartridge is removed, swab the connections to the cartridge that are inside the printer where the cartridge is seated.

Its showing "close ink cover"


Hi there!
The message "Close Ink Cover" means that the cartridge door is not closed securely.
-please open the ink cartridge cover and make sure all cartridges are installed correctly and then close the cartridge cover. That should clear the message on the screen.
Hope this helps!

My epson stylus cx6000 printer keeps showing -(install the ink cartridges) and I have already put in new ones. The code is E-02.


f you have just installed a new cartridge and you still see an ink related error message, the cartridge may be incorrectly installed. Follow these steps to make sure the cartridges are correctly installed:

  1. Make sure the Stylus CX is turned on.


  2. Check the photo viewer screen to determine which cartridge is incorrectly installed. Then do one of the following:


    • If printer shows the ink cartridge is expended, press the cp_button_6.gif Start button.


    • If the printer shows the cartridge is low on ink, press the Setup/Utilities button. Press the cp_button_41_er.gif or cp_button_42_er.gif button to select Press Start to change cartridges. Then press the cp_button_6.gif Start button.


  3. Press the cp_button_6.gif Start button again.


  4. Lift up the scanner, then open the cartridge cover.


alert_caution.gif Caution:
Never attempt to open the cartridge cover when the print head is moving. Wait until the cartridges have moved to the replacement position.

  • Press down all the ink cartridges until they click into place to make sure they are properly seated.


  • alert_note.gif Note:
    If a cartridge is properly seated already, you may not hear a click.

  • Close the ink cartridge cover and press it until it clicks into place.


  • Close the scanner.

    1. Buy only genuine Dell replacement cartridges. Dell states their printer cartridges cannot be refilled with ink and that only their cartridges work in the printer.
    2. Bring the cartridge carrier of the printer to the center so you can access the ink cartridges. Open the cover of the printer and the carrier slides to the center. Make sure the printer is turned on.
    3. Remove the old black ink cartridge to use the color cartridge. If you allow the old black cartridge to remain in the printer, you will get error messages that the ink is low. The printer may also keep reverting back to the black ink as the default color when printing.
    4. Open the package of the new color cartridge carefully. Remove any blue packing tape that's on the ink cartridge. Take care not to touch the gold area or you could damage the cartridge. Insert the new color cartridge into the correct slot in the printer, the right side of the cartridge carrier. The ink cartridges aren't interchangeable; they need to be placed in the correct slot.
    5. Close the cover on your printer after installing the color cartridge. Run a print test to make sure the color cartridge is installed correctly. Use the Dell Ink Management System to monitor your printer and all-in-one functions. Thanks Thiru

    No B/W print while black cartridge is full.


    Your printer and its software will let you know when an ink cartridge is low or expended.

    If an ink cartridge is low or expended, you see a message on the Epson Stylus CX8400 LCD display screen. If a cartridge is expended, you must replace it to be able to print. If a cartridge is low, you can continue printing until a cartridge needs replacement.

    NOTE:
    You cannot print or copy when an ink cartridge is expended even if the other cartridges are not expended. Replace any expended cartridges before printing or copying.

    When an installed ink cartridge is more than six months old, you may need to replace it if your printouts do not look their best, even after cleaning and aligning the print head.


    Follow the steps below to replace one or more ink cartridges that are low on ink, expended, or too old:

    1. Turn on the printer.

    If you're replacing a cartridge before you see a message on the LCD display screen, press Setup, select Maintenance, and press OK. Then select Change Ink Cartridge and press OK.

    2. Open the scanner.

    3. Open the cartridge cover.

    4. Squeeze the tab on the cartridge and lift the cartridge straight up to remove it. Dispose of it carefully. Do not take the used cartridge apart or try to refill it.

    5. Before opening the new cartridge package, shake it four or five times. (Do not shake a cartridge after opening the package; ink may leak.)

    6. Remove the cartridge from the package, but be careful not to touch the green chip on the cartridge.

    7. Remove the yellow tape from the bottom of the cartridge.

    CAUTION:
    Do not remove any other labels or seals, or ink will leak.

    8. Insert the new cartridge into the holder and push it down until it clicks into place.

    9. Once you replace all the necessary cartridges, close the cartridge cover and push it down until it clicks into place.

    10. Close the scanner.

    11. Press OK to begin charging the ink. This takes about 2 minutes.

    When you see a completion message on the LCD display screen, ink charging is finished.

    CAUTION:
    Never turn off the printer while ink is charging or you'll waste ink. If you see an ink replacement message on the LCD display screen, press OK and press down all the cartridges securely.

    Remove and Install Cartridges Be sure you have your replacement cartridges handy before you begin. You must install new cartridges immediately after removing the old ones. Caution:
    Do not open ink cartridge packages until you are ready to install the ink. Cartridges are vacuum packed to maintain reliability. 1. Turn on the Epson Stylus CX8400 Series. If a cartridge is low or expended, you see a message on the Epson Stylus CX8400 Series LCD display screen. If a cartridge is expended, you must replace it to be able to print. If a cartridge is low, you can continue printing until the cartridge needs replacement. If you’re replacing a cartridge before you see a message on the Epson Stylus CX8400 Series LCD display screen, press Setup, select Maintenance, and press OK. Then select Change Ink Cartridge and press OK. 2. Open the scanner. 3. Open the cartridge cover. 4. Squeeze the tab on the cartridge and lift the cartridge straight up to remove it. Dispose of it carefully. Do not take the used cartridge apart or try to refill it. Warning:
    If ink gets on your hands, wash them thoroughly with soap and water. If ink gets into your eyes, flush them immediately with water. Keep ink cartridges out of the reach of children. 5. Before opening the new cartridge package, shake it four or five times. (Do not shake a cartridge after opening the package; ink may leak.) 6. Remove the cartridge from the package, but be careful not to touch the green chip on the cartridge. 7. Remove the yellow tape from the bottom of the cartridge. Caution:

    If you see an ink replacement message on the LCD display screen, press OK and press down all the cartridges securely.

    If you remove an ink cartridge for later use, protect the ink supply area from dirt and dust and store it in the same environment as the Epson Stylus CX8400 Series with the label facing upward. Note that there is a valve in the ink supply port, making covers or plugs unnecessary, but care is needed to prevent the ink from staining items that the cartridge touches. Do not touch the ink cartridge ink supply port or surrounding area, and do not store the cartridge upside down.

    If you remove a low or expended ink cartridge, you cannot reinstall and use the cartridge.
