Keep saying ink holders have not been inserted correctly

I have tried everything, even buying new ink holders and inserting them, but still the printer says they are not inserted correctly. Problem arose out of nothing.

    Yes, I have been using refilled cartridges, but this has worked without problems for a couple of months?

    Are you using refilled cartridges or Canon factory new cartridges?

Try using Canon factory new cartridges.

Canon does not support or allow the use of OEM cartridges on their products.

On the real bad side, you may just have voided any type of warranty claim from Canon.

Go back to the place you bought the cartridges and tell them their product damaged your printer and they need to fix it.

How to replace a brother catridge.


The Brother MFC-240C uses an individual cartridge for each color (black, yellow, cyan, and magenta). When one of the cartridges is empty or near empty, the printer will tell you to replace that ink cartridge.

You can buy the cartridges individually, or you can buy a pack of all three color cartridges or a pack of two black cartridges. To replace one of the ink cartridges, follow the steps below.
All four of the cartridges are located on the right front side of the printer, behind a gray plastic cover. Pull the cover forward from the side, where there is a slight cutout for your finger to grab. When the cover falls forward, you'll see the four ink cartridge holders, coded by color.

For the ink cartridge that you need to replace, push down on the purple handle for that color. The ink cartridge holder will open and fall forward, revealing the ink cartridge itself. Push down on the cartridge holder and the cartridge should pop out toward you a little bit. Grasp the cartridge and remove it.
Open the new cartridge and remove it from its wrapper. Discard the yellow cover, unless you plan to use it for the old cartridge.

Insert the new cartridge into the correct slot (from left to right, they go black, yellow, cyan, magenta) so that the word "brother" is right-side up and located toward the top of the cartridge. Once the cartridge is most of the way in, push the ink cartridge holder up by the purple handle until it snaps into place.

If you are replacing more than one color, repeat this procedure for each cartridge. Then, when you are finished, close the ink cartridge cover.

If you were out of ink or low on ink, the machine should recognize the new cartridge and perform the calibration process. If it doesn't automatically recognize the new cartridge, it will ask if you have changed one or more of the cartridges. Press "1" for Yes when it asks about a color that you replaced, or "2" for No if it asks about a color you didn't replace.

Once the printer comes back up to the ready state, print a color test page to verify that everything is working. If the test page comes out okay, the new cartridge is fine and you can either discard the old cartridge in the trash or save it to recycle. (But don't get rid of it before you are sure that the new cartridge is recognized and working correctly.)

I have a C4240 All-In-One HP printer. I just put in a new black cartridge. The alignment page prints, however, when I scan it according to the direction, it fails. This has not happened before. I would...


This may be a long shot, however,have you tried to replace the old cartridge and see what happens?

Given that one may be out of ink, the printer may not accept "a call to print" as my hp printer, but I am thinking that either you may have a defective cartridge or otherwise somehow did not install the cartridge through the correct install method - meaning that if you manually slid the cartridge holder over to insert the new one, it may need to me manually moved back (typically hp has a button to depress to "call" the cartridge holder over towards the center to insert a new one...)

FINALLY -- if it is color - check the ink levels to be sure they have ink - my HP gets real finicky when the color cartridges are nearing empty...

Best Regards

The printer doesn't recognize the new original HP color cartridge


There is a small spring that holds the ink cartridge in the ink holder. You will see it stick out from the right hand side of the ink holder where the ink cartridge slides in. If that spring isn't being held to the ink holder by two plastic tabs, (I.E. the plastic tabs are broken) the printer will never recognize the cartridge. If the printer is still under warranty I would contact HP or an authorized repair center for HP. Both the black and color ink holder has this spring. I know of no way to repair this kind of breakage.

I need to change the ink cartridges on epson stylus sx200 but i need help as instruction book doesntreally tellyou how-thanks


buy an ink cartridge made specifically for your printer. Turn on your printer and raise the lid or press the cartridge changing button. 3 Wait for the cartridge carrier to slide out. with an Epson printer, lift the cartridge holder lid, and the cartridge will pop up for removal. Carefully remove the tape from the ink opening on the bottom of new cartridge. Insert the new cartridge into the cartridge carrier. Make sure the new cartridge is oriented the same way that the old cartridge had been. 7 Feel and hear the cartridge click into position. On some models, arrows will indicate the cartridge is correctly positioned. with an Epson printer close the cartridge holder lid and press the cleaning button to charge the cartridge. Close printer cover.

Hp 2610xi not recognizing HP 97 color cartridge


If you look in the 96 (Black) cartridge loading area you might see that the retention spring has poked a hole in the circut board. I am now either trying to replace the ink cartridge holder or purchace a new printer. I have about $70.00 in new ink that I can't use now. The 2610xi worked great until the spring popped out of its holder.
