INK DEPLETED BLOCKING ALL FUNCTION

Black cartridge needed replacement; when I installed the new black cartridge, it still showed INK DEPLETED, the cyan then also registered as INK DEPLETED, and no other printer function works - I can't print test page or enter the maintenance menus. Do I need to replace BOTH cartridges now? Same problem

Both of the cartridges did need replacing; the black is OK now so just pop in a cyan and you should be fine.

It show E 6 at the printer and the lights of the color BLACK was blink at they cannot function the printer.what will I do?


In most cases the printer driver software can have errors while being in use or is shut down. So to reset remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and then connect the Printer to be detected as a new hardware as it will be installed. Now check the printer properties to see the ink levels.
Activate head cleaning before a test is taken . Sometimes it is possible that the head is not reacting to the need of the PC command or can be an issue with ink drying or
poor ink cartridge contacts.

Did you replaced the cartridge because of this issue or because it was depleted?

Since Kodak cartridges have the Print head attached to each cartridge it may be that the cartridge it malfunctioning.

To Test use a lightly damped paper towel and put the cartridge or print head where the ink comes out in top of the paper towel if ink start flowinf to the paper towel then the cartridge is fine, otherwise try to exchange that cartridge for a new one.

How do I change the toner?


The Fax-2480c does not use toner cartridges.
This is an inkjet and so uses ink cartridges.

There are 4 cartridges, black, yellow, cyan (blue) and magenta (red). If any of these cartridges are empty, you need replace them.

This machine takes LC-51 cartridges.
You're probably out of warranty so jsut get refills... it's cheaper

Epson 4800 won't initialize after changing black cartridge


Did you change from matte black to photo black? Or vice versa? If so you have to use the ink conversion kit that came with your printer and draw out the old ink and install the new black in cartridge. Try page 113 in your owners manual. I am having a similar problem but with the light cyan and it says "set ink cartridge".

HP Photosmart C 4200 printer will not print in black. Will print all other colors


Try to  print a test page first. To print a test page press and hold the bottons power and cancel together. The test page will show you the amount of ink left in the cartridges.  If the black ink color bar is not visible in  the, than it will mean that the ink is low or depleted. Try a new genuine HP ink cartridge. It should help you.

Ink cartridge


I think you need to open your printers "Properties" and set and apply that new cartridges have been installed to get past the problem. It's been a while but I had to do this with mine last time I refilled them after they showed depleted.

Black ink cartridge - won't print


It is not unusual to receive a bad cartridge. The ink or the fiber in those cartridges are subject to blocking ( drying) while not in use.
That would be the most likely problem.

New ink cartridge istallation: Brother MFC-240


I guess you d used generic ink carts?!
If yes, the cart holder needs replacement due to ink that has stained the led control. The ink has made a short circuit. The error can only be deleted by replacing the whole cart holder!
