That error usually means you need to change out the Ink waste tank filters located at the base of the printer - this is best changed by an actual HP tech - they can be very temperamental to remove properly. The cartridges probably leaked during storage. Next time, pull all of the carts out of the printer prior to storage.
Good luck, please rate this answer if you found it helpful.

From http://www.refreshcartridges.co.uk/igloo/clearing-canon-pixma-error-message-e13-e16/

Locate the STOP/RESET/RESUME button on your printer which is represented by a triangle within a circle on the body of your printer and is usually in red, white or black as pictured below. With the reset button located hold it down for at least five seconds and then release it.

Bypassing cartridge message s405


You won't be able to bypass the "missing cartridge" error. All cartridges needs sufficient ink left for the printer to print. If one the cartridges is out of ink it will damange the printhead.

error 1203's error name is print head short which indicates a short circuit in the print head has occurred. solution to this problem is to disconnect and then reconnect the printer power cable. Reinstall the ink cartridges.For more information, see Replacing Ink Cartridges.
Replacing Ink Cartridges

  • Lift the printer unit, and then position the scanner support between the tabs to hold it open.

  • The ink cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position unless the printer is busy.
  • Press down on the ink cartridge lever to raise each ink cartridge lid.

    Remove the old ink cartridges.


    sayurisan20_6.jpg


  • Store the cartridges in an air-tight container, such as the storage unit you received with your photo cartridge, or dispose of them properly.

  • If you are installing new ink cartridges, remove the sticker and transparent tape from the back and bottom of each ink cartridge.
    NOTE: The following illustration shows a black cartridge and a color cartridge (used for normal printing). For photo printing, use a photo cartridge and a color cartridge.
    sayurisan20_7.jpg







    Insert the new ink cartridges. Make sure the black or photo ink cartridge is secure in the left ink cartridge carrier, and the color ink cartridge is secure in the right ink cartridge carrier.

    Snap each lid closed.

    Wont print with all new ink cartridges


    If the error message is only "magenta/cyan low", it doesn't cause any error. The low message stays after replacing ink cartridges if they're replaced too early (before they're indicated as actually empty), it doesn't cause the printer to not work.
    However, some other problem might be faulty, or there might be another error message. Try emptying printer queue and print from Ink Management -> Menu/set (twice) to check wether the problem is with communication from pc or if the printer actually is unable to print.

    DELLA 940 DOES NOT PRINT


    Hi there Error 50c

    Regarding the Dell A940 "Error 50c"....the user guide doesn't seem to mention "Error 50c". They do, however, mention a "Cartridge Error" on page 52 of the manual. They claim this means that the printer has detected a short circuit (fuse/resister) in the cartridge. As you may or may not have noticed in the manual, this is what they recommend doing about it:

    1) Press Power to turn the printer off.

    2) Lift the printer cover/lid (scanner unit) until the scanner support holds it open.

    3) Turn the printer on.
    The ink cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position unless the printer is busy.

    4) Remove the color ink cartridge.

    5) Lower the printer (scanner unit) until it is completely closed.
    If the error message displays again, replace the black cartridge with a new black cartridge.

    If the error message does not display, repeat steps 1–3 and then go to step 6.

    6) Reinstall the color cartridge and remove the black ink cartridge.

    7) Lower the printer (scanner unit) until it is completely closed.

    If the error message displays again, replace the color cartridge with a new
    color cartridge.
    If there is no error message (indicated by flashing lights), repeat steps 1–3 and then reinstall both ink cartridges.
    8) Lower the printer (scanner unit) until it is completely closed.

    If you get the error message again, while both cartridges are installed, replace both of the cartridges.

    Basically, what they want you to determine is,....if the short circuit is with the "black ink" cartridge or the "color ink" cartridge and then replace the cartridge that has the problem.

    You may have to buy a new cartrige.
    Please all I ask is call back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one, so I will keep on helping.
