SOURCE: new black print cartridge not working

I only use refill HP inks. When the cartridge prints gray instead of sharp black it means the ink well is clogged. Yes, that can happen on a new cartridge. Sometimes it happens when they put too much ink in the cartridge, or even heat can make it not work. Also streaking black lines is the problem of the ink not coming out properly. Easiest thing to do is go to a refill station like Cartridge World and have them test it or clean it out. You can also make sure the printer, not the cartridge is clean. Ink builds up an pools. Get some Q-Tips and clean up all that spilled ink. Sometimes in the software it says you can clean the print head, do that too.

Printer keeps trying to perform an alignment after installing a new black ink cartridge fix:

1. Unplug USB
2. Turn printer off
3. Wait 10 seconds
4. Remove paper from paper tray so printer has no paper to print on
5. Turn printer on
6. Printer messages to insert paper in paper tray
7. Press and hold “Setup” and “ Cancel” buttons and press “OK”
8. Should be good until next black ink cartridge change.

SOURCE: will not print cartridges out of date

I never heard of that for the C7180 all-in-one. Remove the ink cartridges. Dampen a rag with water. Slide the cartridges across the rag until you see ink. If yes, than good. Grab a couple of cotton swabs & drip a couple drops of alcohol onto a tip. Wipe the copper contacts off on the ink cartridges. Do the same to the contacts within the ink carriages. Replace the ink into the carriage.
From your computer, open Printer and Faxes. Make sure your HP C7180 all-in-one printer has a check mark next to it. If not, left click the C7180 once so its high-lighted. Than click "File" in the upper left corner of the window. Left click, "Set as Default printer". Than right click once on the C7180 & slide to & left click on Properties. In the next window click "Printing Preferences", Another window will open. Left click the "Services" tab. Click the "Service this device" button.
Than click, "Clean the Print Cartridges". When the printer finishes, click "Print a Test Page", button. (If you do not see ink on the test page than your ink cartridge are too clogged & you'll have no choice but to replace them).

Using the damp rag loosens possible clogged/dried up ink. Cleaning the contacts with alcohol removes oil from touching the copper contacts with your fingers, also removes dust. Always keep a cover over your printer when not in use. My current ink cartridges are at least 1+ year old. HP & other manufactures do use tracking software to monitor your ink cartridges in this fashion. If you remove an empty cartridge & re-fill it & replace the cartridge the software knows. Each cartridge has a tiny chip attached to it.
The internal software knows when you fill a ink cartridge & can shut down your ability to print. Forcing you to buy new ink cartridges. Below is the HP link for your C7180 printer.

SOURCE: The printer doesn't reset after putting in new cartridges

did you take off that piece of plastic that coverred your new ink cartridge contact?

SOURCE: HELP PLEASE

Remove one cartridge and close the access door. If the cartridge light goes off, the bad cartridge has been removed. If the light continues to blink, remove the other cartridge and reinstall the first one. If the light goes off, the cartridge in the printer is the good one.

Hp c6180 states cartridges missing or damaged


OK now this might seem bizarre, but did you go ahead and click the "Black Only" print option?

I have a C6180. Just installed all new cartridges. Tried to print and got the message that Cyan is empty. Tried all sorts of things. Then out of frustration clicked the Black Onl option. Document came out printed in color! Double checked with a picture that has lots of cyan colors. It all printed too! Go figure.

Remove the magenta cartridge, and try cleaning the head with alcohol, maybe with a small paint brush or an acid brush. It sounds like ink has dried and plugged up that head.

Magenta doesnt print in proper place


Sounds like the new cartridge has been sitting around for too long. The solid lines are usually due to the drum being exposed to light for too long. The other reason could be the charger roller has been in contact with drum (in the cartridge) for a very long time and probably heat has a part in it as well. Try another cartridge.

OfficeJet 9130 incorrectly reporting empty ink cartridge


Look to see if there is dirt or other debris inside the Magenta Ink slot. There is probably something there disrupting the ink flow. Use a flash light to see if ink is clogged. Use Acohol with Q tip to clean the area and reinsert the ink cartridge. Make sure the printer is off and the slot has dried before turning the printer back on.
Hope this helps. Helen

Epson C66 problem


Without the benefit of a response from any of rickyostrom, liusgarciaca, or hotdog233311, I think we can say the problem lies with the fact that your magenta cartridge isn't printing. You can confirm this by carrying out a nozzle check print.

If any of you would like further assistance in restoring your magenta to working condition, please do a new post to this effect.

HP Business Inkjet 1000 error detecting new cartridge


Disconnect the communication cable (USB?).

Turn off the printer, wait one minute then turn it back on,

Then press the left button on the panel, the transparent one to the left of power button. It will print a status page. Check the dates and information under each color that is failing.

The ink cartridges MAY be outdated. Printing the test and information page without the computer connected fools the machine since it can't get your computer date.

If the cartridges are outdated, then change your computer year back to 2005 or so, reconnect the printer cable and send something to print, once the printer prints it out, reset your computer to today's year.

You will need to do this procedure whenever you turns off the printer. (Disconnect cable, change computer year, print, reset computer date).

Hope this works.

Magenta cartridge


I just wrote the same solution but I'm not familiar with this site however, I am JonathanD. I read about the ink cartridges having an expiration date on a chip that prevents the printer from recognizing the ink cartridge after that date. I called Canon to find out where that date is located on the ink cartridge or packaging so I can see how long it's good for when I buy them. They told me that there was no expiration date and the ink is good indefinitely... so I told them what I heard about the chip. I was then put on hold for a while and when they got back on the phone, I was told that they were sending me a new Magenta 8 cartridge "as a courtesy."
