This printer will quit when you still have 1/5 of a cartridge and it makes you get a new cartridge--or get a Universal Ink Jet Refill package, drill a hole in the top, refill and tape over the hole (their instructions don't tell you how to do this cartridge, but its just as easy as any other)

My Pinnacle Pro 901 is set to print using black ink only but it keeps telling me I need to replace color cartridges and won't print.

You won't be able to print if one of the cartridges is out of ink. The printer needs all cartridges with sufficient ink levels to prevent damaging the printhead.

Every time a cartridge is replaced, all colors are primed simultaneously thus the need for all cartridges to have ink.

Canon mg6120 cyan won't print,

  • I had the same problem. Here's what I did to fix it:
    Unplugged the printer 2x. On the first try I just plugged it back in and still had the problem. The second time I took all of the ink tanks out, unplugged it (with the power still on, don't know if this makes a difference, but that's how I did it) then plugged it back in. The printer said that it couldn't detect any ink. I reinstalled all ink tanks, and a message said that it had been shut down improperly. Press ok to continue. I test printed a picture with a lot of blue in it and the picture came out true to the exact color of the picture.
    That's what worked for me. I hope it works for anyone else with the same problem.

    Installed new ink and now won't print anything, not even a test page. says error. deskjet 4400 series

    Each ink cartridge has a metal, thin Copper 'plate'.
    In this 'plate' there is a series of VERY small holes. The holes are so small it's hard to discern their existence, with just the ***** eye.

    The area on the printer's body, that the copper plate matches up to, also has matching holes.

    After a given time the ink dries up in these tiny holes.
    The dried ink needs to be removed.

    Printer UNPLUGGED from power, printer case open.
    I would suggest wearing dish washing gloves, and remove all ink cartridges.

    Small bowl half full of distilled water as hot as you can stand it, dip a clean, lint-free cloth in it. (Distilled, because non-distilled water can leave hard water spots)

    Squeeze all excess water out until the cloth is damp. (D-A-M-P) Wipe the area on the body of the printer.

    I would suggest wiping in one direction only. Wipe, then go to a fresh, clean part of the cloth, wipe again.
    Keep wiping until the cloth picks up No ink.

    You may want to follow suit on the ink cartridge/s now, as they may have picked up dried ink.

    Suggest use a can of compressed air for computers, and make SURE all areas are D-R-Y.

    Allow the printer to set open to dry afterwards. May only take 30 minutes, or less.

    Ensuring all surfaces are dry from the water, reinstall the ink cartridges.
    Close the printer's case. Plug back into power, WAIT 1 minute, then turn on.

    How do I change the ink cartridges on a lexmark 5495

    Please follow the steps below on how to replace ink cartridge on the Lexmark X5495 printer:

    We have just put a new black ink cartridge in our printer and now it won't print. The computer says it is error# 5200 and to see the user guide. The manuals don;t have any info to help. I have tried...

    Error 5200:

    Start with printer powered off
    1. Open cover of printer and verify that the ink cartridge carriage is not in the center of the printer. Leave cover open.
    2. Unplug the electrical cord from the printer and wait 30 seconds.
    3. Plug electrical cord back in, when ink cartridge carriage moves to the center of the printer quickly unplug the electrical cord again. This should leave the ink cartridge carriage in the center of the printer so you can get to it.
    4. Lift up the gray arm that surrounds the ink cartridges.
    5. Remove the entire ink cartridge holder (not just the ink cartridges). It will lift out easily as a unit. Lower the gray arm that you lifted to remove the cartridge holder.
    6. Close printer cover. Plug electricity back in.
    7. There should be a message about checking the ink cartridge on the display (I can

    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.

    My HP deskjet 2050 all-in-one printer only shoots out blank paper and won't print. It used to say there was no paper in it, which there was. It scans & prints just fine - just won't print...

    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!

    Try a test print via the Control Panel> Printers and Faxes> properties > Print test page.

    How do i change my ink cartridges in my kexmark x3650

    Turn the printer on.
    Lift the lid that covers the print-head mechanism.
    In a few seconds, the print-head will slide to a position from where you can "unlock" and then remove an ink-cartridge.
