Lexmark P315 InkJet Photo Printer Ink Cartridge Problem

Hi, I would greatly appreciate any help with this.

I have the stated photo printer and it was fine until I changed the ink cartridge. I've changed it before, and it's been fine. But this time, it reads "cartridge error". So i thought it was a faulty cartridge, tried again with a new one, and at times, it says "cartridge error" other times, it says "cartridge not detected".
I'm starting to think it's the printer itself, but it recognises the old, empty cartridge if I put it back in.

I don't know what to do, short of taking it apart or taking it somewhere to be looked at.

Thank you in advance xx

Hi, I know this might sound really bad but have you made sure that you have taken ALL the little bits of plastic and covers that are sometimes on the new cartidges?

Also are you using the exact same cartridge as before?

Another thing you could do to bypass the problem is to have your one refilled. That will at least fix the problem for the immediate.

Does your printer have some software where you can run a clean print head and do an align and other stuff. If so you could try those too.
Lets us know.

Lexmark x7170 changed ink cartridge. test sheet comes up great, print something and it says ink low. i tried to shut off 5x's to maybe reset/ reinstalled ink cartridges same message. cleaned heads


The Lexmark x7170 should let you continue printing with the ink cartridge regardless of the estimated ink with most cartridges. The only exception to this is if the cartridges are part of Lexmark's returns programme. I would advise removing the cartridge and checking for small text stating "Return Programme Cartridge" on the label. If this is present sadly there is no way of continuing, apart from buying a new cartridge.

With regards to the low ink estimate, am I right in assuming you are using a refilled or remanufactured ink cartridge? If so this is unavoidable but should not prevent you from printing until the ink physically runs out.

Canon pc 941 copier cartridge issues


Just to clarify, you are stating INK? The Canon PC941 uses an OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) Toner Cartridge. Canon toner cartridges for PC941 printer are supplies produced by the same manufacturer that makes given piece of equipment. Toner cartridges produced by Canon are called OEM. Remove the toner from the machine and then use cotton swabs and alcohol to clean around the roller wheels of all drawer areas. Be sure to unplug the equipment before attempting to clean the wheels.

trying to print a few pages and see if the color change color tone, you should feel an improvement in quality. (probably the Charter will require a new roll until the ink replaces the old print head), unless felt an improvement could be to blame and cartridges must be replaced with good quality

Paper Jam Issue with the HP Deskjet 5440


Clean the contacts on the HP Cartridge. I've had the same error before and i switched it to a fresh new cartridge.. works fine ever since. THen i decided to switch back to the old cartridge, same error as you but i cleaned the contacts on the cartridge, works for a while but done after a week. Problem is that the ribbon circuit is rusted and the printer doesnt recognize the ink anymore.

Also make sure you both have the ink cartridges in place. Make sure it is seated properly inside.

hope this helps!

Can't use compatible ink


Hi,
You need a chip-resetting tool.
Or use the printers software utilitie changing ink cartridge, some printers insist that you go into your printer software/program. to inform or communicate with the printer, that you are changing a Cartridge. then the printer, will move the printhead to the desired position, to remove the cartridge.
When the new cartridge is installed, the printer is set to look for new changes. make sure you,ve inserted the cartridge fully into it,s slot ( holder ) push until you get a slight click.
If you,ve disabled Status monitor, then your printer cannot output the Cartridge Status. ( empty-Full )
