Re: Replace Cartridge,Ink Emty Black

See here:


Do use original ink carts because thirdparty ones have a different construction and wont be accepted by printer sometimes.


When (re-)inserting press ink cart into assy and clip the support over the edge.


Please check the other carts, too. They may be empty.

I have a canon IP 4200 printer. The ink cartridge light on the Magenta ink cartridge doesn't work so it won't accept/recognize that a new ink cartridge has been installed. Is this something that...

It sounds as though you have a break in the carriage ribbon cable. A new carriage would hopefully cure it but its just possible the logic board has failed and is not sending any signal to the magenta ink tank. Its certainly repairable but you would need to know the costs and the labour charge to see if its worthwhile.

I rwplaced the black ink cartridge a week ago. Now the printer says the colored ink carftridge is emty aand it will not let me print. I only want to print black and white and not able to get to a store...

The only way to solve the problem is by replacing the color cartridge.
If you only want to print black and white get a black and white printer.
Sorry, but that's the cold hard facts.

I have a HP 7580 printer/fax/scanner which will not print in black even though i have installed a new black ink cartridge

I had this same problem, replaced all ink cartridges and problem still remained. The fix for this is actually to replace the print heads not the cartridges. There is a black/yellow and Magenta/Cyan print head in the printer itself under the scanner on the right hand side. Rpelace as needed.

Won't print with just black ink cartridge

When you print, in the printing window, click properties, then click advanced. Most times you can select to print using black cartridge only. Unfortunately you will need to replace to get the printer working. If you need further assistance let me know.
Thank you,

Can I print "Black only on the Epson BX 300 F ?

Since the printer insists on having all 4 cartridges (non-empty) fitted before it will print anything, the only recourse to fitting new cartridges is to fool the printer into thinking your empty magenta cartridge has ink in it. You can do this by using a cartridge resetting tool to reset the magenta cartridge chip so it reads "full". A resetter tool can be obtained from e-bay very cheaply (£4 or less). You will find sellers who ship worldwide on E-Bay UK.

Be aware though, that if you forget to select monochrome printing, the colour ink is also used in black printing - and printing with a "dry" cartridge can damage the print head. You can guard against this by filling your magenta cartridge with distilled water.

You will also find sellers of magenta cartridges (and the others of course) on E-Bay UK who ship worldwide.

Possible to print only black when colour cartridges are empty?

This printer does not let you print if even one of the cartidges is out of ink. I suggest you replace them and then in the printer properties change your settings to the way you want color to be spent.

Empty ink cartridge message

I replaced the old cartridge with a new one (Magenta) and it still asks me to replace it with a new cartridge.  
For 1 colour which is LOW, it stopped me completely from PRINTING or COPYING at all. 
Any clues how to fix this?
