Try reseating the Cartridges of the Printer. But be sure once you take it out, check if they are reaseted correctly or not while putting it in back again

Hp 2540 deskjet. Just replaced BOTH cartridges with genuine HP ink 60. Printer still flashes on the cartridges being empty. Error message. I cannot print anything. I can scan but that is all.


Per HP: After installing a new print cartridge, a message appears on the front panel that the print cartridge is low on ink. This may be caused by installing the cartridges with the power turned off. Cartridges should always be installed with the power turned on.

I got always the message Print Head not installed


follow these steps:
1.
Turn the open the top cover. Wait for the cartridge carrier to stop moving, then lift the first cartridge out of the printer. Tilt the cartridge forward, then carefully lift it out of the printer.
2.
Examine the electrical contacts on the bottom of the cartridge. Look for any tape that might be covering those contacts. New print cartridges ship with this tape to protect the cartridge and prevent leaks. If you fail to remove this tape, the printer cannot sense the cartridge and it might return a "print head not installed" error.
3.
Remove the rest of the cartridges from the printer. Check them for tape and other obstructions. Also check the cartridges for leaking ink, and clean them if necessary. Discard and replace any cartridges found to be leaking.
4.
Clean the ink cartridge carriers thoroughly, using a soft cloth or a small vacuum cleaner designed for cleaning computer components. Paper dust and ink residue can accumulate in the carrier and cause communication issues with the printer.
5.
Place the ink cartridges back in the printer and close the top cover. Power cycle the printer if the error message does not go away immediately.

in case of any additional help, please revert back

  • 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.

    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.

    I changed theblack ink cartridge twice and it still won't print in black, colours are printing but no black


    Ink level data is stored in a chip of the cartridge. Once the cartridge is empty, ink low message will appear eventhough you refill the cartridge. You need to deactivate ink level detection function to continue printing in case of usage of refill ink .

    Search google on how to change ink level detection

    Cartridge problem


    Are you using a factory new ink cartridge?
    Please consider the following:
    If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
    They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
    If you are using factory new cartridges, then please call the manufacturers Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

    My epson stylus cx6000 printer keeps showing -(install the ink cartridges) and I have already put in new ones. The code is E-02.


    f you have just installed a new cartridge and you still see an ink related error message, the cartridge may be incorrectly installed. Follow these steps to make sure the cartridges are correctly installed:

    1. Make sure the Stylus CX is turned on.


    2. Check the photo viewer screen to determine which cartridge is incorrectly installed. Then do one of the following:


      • If printer shows the ink cartridge is expended, press the cp_button_6.gif Start button.


      • If the printer shows the cartridge is low on ink, press the Setup/Utilities button. Press the cp_button_41_er.gif or cp_button_42_er.gif button to select Press Start to change cartridges. Then press the cp_button_6.gif Start button.


    3. Press the cp_button_6.gif Start button again.


    4. Lift up the scanner, then open the cartridge cover.


    alert_caution.gif Caution:
    Never attempt to open the cartridge cover when the print head is moving. Wait until the cartridges have moved to the replacement position.

  • Press down all the ink cartridges until they click into place to make sure they are properly seated.


  • alert_note.gif Note:
    If a cartridge is properly seated already, you may not hear a click.

    im_337_er.gif

  • Close the ink cartridge cover and press it until it clicks into place.


  • Close the scanner.


  • im_339_er.gif

  • Press the cp_button_6.gif Start button. The Stylus CX charges ink for about one minute and displays Charging Ink on the photo viewer screen until charging is finished.


  • alert_caution.gif Caution:
    Never turn off the Stylus CX while the Charging Ink message is displayed or you'll waste ink.

  • Press the Setup/Utilities button to return to the previous mode, if necessary.
