Check to make sure that the contacts on the printhead carriage is clean.. Remove both cartridges. Unplug printer.Wait at least 3 minutes. Plug printer back in. Printer will turn on. Reinstall cartridges.

SOURCE: HP Deskjet 6940 not printing after replacing ink cartridge

My HP Deskjet 6940 is not printing. The color (left) low ink light is dark and the black (right) low ink light is flashing. I replaced the black ink cartridge with a new one but the low ink light continues to flash. No tears/rips in the circuit strip and all the copper leads appear to be connected

SOURCE: Can't find ink levels for my HP Deskjet 5940

The installation disk for your printer has a setup wizard that monitors your ink levels in your printer. Go through the installation again as it will not hurt anything and you should find it on one of your pop up screens that it leads you to.

SOURCE: HP DeskJet 930c is leaking black ink

The printer primes and cleans the cartridges when the cartridges go to the right side of carriage. Sounds like a cartridge has either leaked or you have used it enough the the ink pool is full, or you have layed the printer on its side or back. From experence, if ink is leaking out of the printer, your probley better off getting anithe printer. I have tried to take the covers off and clean inside print, and it is a messy job.

Epson workforce 520 won't recognise ink cartidges


When replacing ink on the Epson Workforce 520, Ensure the cartridges have the correct/same number of gold contacts. Ive seen them with 7 and 9 gold square contacts and they were otherwise identical, and the ones with 9 contacts threw an "cartridge not recognized" error on the printer's dispay.

Compatibility of Ink cartidge.


The MP600 does not use the 40 or 41 cartridges, it uses individual color (and black) ink tanks. But other models (MP190, MP460, MP470, etc) do use these cartridges. The error message you are receiving indicates that the printer does not recognize the cartridge you installed as a valid black ink cartridge. This can mean that either the cartridge is faulty, or that the printer has a problem.
I would suggest trying another new cartridge, and if you still get the same error, to contact Canon for support options if the unit is still in warranty.

HP Deskjet 5940 reversed ink cartridges


It is best for you to take time to a Hp Center. You will damage the cart if you try to take them out. Hp service center has special tools which they use to take the cart out. If you are really good to them they will even do it free for you. It will not take more than 10 mins for the job.

Thanks

Printhead ink cartidge replacement


Ok, you may have blocked printheads. Remove cartridges, using a cleaning solution and cotton buds (q-tips) thoroughly clean all residue. Now replace cartridges and try again.
