Won't recognize cartridge

I have a sudden inability to print with the cartridge that I have been using. It was printing fine and then started saying that I need to remove and check cartridge. So I rebooted everything, removed all the cartridges and replaced them, exchanged the cartridge for a new one and I still can't print. I need help with this asap, as of course I have something really important that I need to print today SOON. Please help.

Re: won't recognize cartridge

I had this same problem - swapped for new catridges and nothing happened. No help on HP website as this error message was not listed.

I used a cotton bud (Q-tip_ for USA readers) with methylated spirits (where this is not available, I suggest isopropyl alcohol) and scrubbed the printer contacts where the cartridge connects.

All OK now.

Printer display says "Print cartirdge(s)

when you replaced them did you go into the menu located on the printer and tell the printer that you were changing the cartridges out? If not the printer thinks that you still have not replaced them. To do this all you have to do is go into the menu select the option that says change my cartridges (or something like that) and remove the new ones and put them right back in the printer should then recognize the cartridges.

I have changed the colour ink on my canon mp460 but it still say empty

CL41, this is the one you are using for your cartridge.

Did you change your cartridge with brand new one or refilled one??

If you did with refilled one, the ink level won't go back with full.

This is the method how printer measures the ink level.

1. Each cartridge has a serial number.
2. As soon as installation in printer, printer recognizes the cartridge by serial #.
3. And the printer starts to count the printing document.
4. After reaching certain print counting, the ink level will show "low ink"

So my answer is even if you refilled your cartridge, the ink level won't change,
since printer cannot weight the cartridge or.....some other technology to measure each color ink level.

Any error messages on the printer digital screen or the desktop? I take it the "The ink is fine" means that there is ink in the cartridges!

Green light flashing Red light on

with regards to the status of the lights., its either the cartridges that you installed is not recognized by the printer's print head or cartridges are defective.
try these steps:
if all the inks are new take them out and get an eraser and rub the small chip gently so as to clean the contacts of the chip ( don't touch it with your finger ) reinsert the cartridges in the printer and allow it to charge.

Printer says ink cartridge not recognized.

Take the black ink cartridge back to the person who refilled it. The Microchip that's on the cartridge was not reset properly that's why the printer is returning that error.

You can try some steps before you take it to them to verify it.
1: reseat (take out and put back in) the cartridges into place
2: buy another black cartridge just to check if it will be recognized by the printer, if it does recognize it we know the cartridge is defective. If a new cartridge is also not recognize, start to check your warranty option with the manufacturer...
