Black pages after replacing tuner

I get black pages short after I replaced for the first time my original cartridge with a recycled one. I have cleaned the drum with a clinex and worked for one test page but at the second try, the page printed completely black. Thanks

These machines don't do very well with recycled cartridges.  As a matter of fact, they don't do well with regular new cartridges.  You'll have to get another cartridge.

HPpro L7600 works for about 6 pages then says replace black but black is new so reinsert and again works for about 6 pages then says replace magenta then repeats


try this. Clean the place were the ink goes into the printer. On the printer with running alchol and a qtip. Be real gental, and try and leave any residue or cotton on either place. Also, check and see if the cartridge reset itself. Sometimes you have to go into the program and reset it manualey. Sorry about the spelling errors, good luck and let me kknow if this helped!

Hello,
Sounds like your print head may be faulty. If you can, get it replaced. This is caused by using recycled cartidges or faulty ink cartridge.

Canon Pixma MP800 Prints a 1/4" black stripe on back of page. Is emptying the large PGI-5 cartridge in record time. Have replaced cartridge, run cleaning and maintenance routines. Cleaned bottom...


I have seen this before but it has not caused the black to run out quickly. if you look into the machine you will see at one end of the platen roller it will be swimming in ink. As the paper passes over the roller it will deposit ink to the back of the paper. now why is the ink getting there? Well its just possible that air hole in the cartridge is blocked but you say you have replaced the cartridge. Ah but with what? are you using recycled cartridges? they may be filled with ink and not dye which is what originals use. Dye is much thicker than ink and ink maybe leaking from the cartridge. The seal in the carriage may not be making a clean contact with the base of the black cartridge causing it to leak when the carriage is moving. Check those out and repost if still having the problem.
Good luck

Changed black cartridge now small black dots on all pages, even on test pages. bad cartridge?


Run the "Disable Cartridge Check" diagnostic
It will allow you to put the black cartridge in a different slot i.e. yellow. If the black cartridge in the yellow slot still puts black dots on the page...it is bad.
Can you put the original old black back in the printer. That will tell you right away if the replacement is bad.

Epson stylus r230 printer


the jet is clogged... set the self clean mode on if this does not fix it try another cartridge. if you have been using refilled, recycled cartridges this may have damaged the jets. common fault that recyclers know about but dont give a toss. ink should be filtered 9 times before being injected into cartridge most recyled are filtered once. this causes jets to become blocked, overheat and actually melt

You'll need to either put it back in or replace it.
You need to have both color and black cartridges in for your printer to work.
Never throw away cartridges, save money and refill them or you can take them to most any computer store for recycling.

I haven't the manual for this printer color laserJet 2600n series,

HP Color LaserJet 2600n Printer - Installing Print Cartridges When a print cartridge approaches the end of useful life, the control panel displays a message recommending that to order a replacement. The printer can continue to print using the current print cartridge until the control panel displays a message instructing to replace the cartridge. The printer uses four colors and has a different print cartridge for each color: black (K), cyan (C), magenta (M), and yellow (Y). Replace a print cartridge when the printer control panel displays one of the following messages: Replace yellow cartridge, Replace magenta cartridge, Replace cyan cartridge, Replace black cartridge. The control panel display also indicates the color that should be replaced (unless a genuine HP cartridge is not currently installed). Change the print cartridge
  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Open the front door. c00315320.gif CAUTION: Do not place anything on the transfer belt (ETB), which is located on the inside of the front door.
  3. Remove the used print cartridge from the printer. c00315321.gif
  4. Remove the new print cartridge from the bag. Place the used print cartridge in the bag for recycling. c00315322.gif
  5. Grasp both sides of the print cartridge by the blue handles and distribute the toner by gently rocking the print cartridge from front to back. CAUTION: Do not touch the shutter or the surface of the roller. c00315323.gif
  6. Remove the orange shipping locks and the orange shipping tape from the new print cartridge. Discard the shipping tape and shipping locks according to local regulations. c00315324.gif
  7. Align the print cartridge with the tracks inside the printer, and using the handles, insert the print cartridge until it is firmly seated. c00315325.gif
  8. Firmly close the front door. c00315326.gif
  9. Turn on the printer. After a short time, the control panel should display Ready.
    NOTE: If a cartridge is in the wrong slot or is the wrong type for the printer, the control panel will display one of the following messages: Incorrect yellow, Incorrect magenta, Incorrect cyan, Incorrect black.
  10. Installation is complete. Place the used print cartridge in the box in which the new cartridge arrived. See the enclosed recycling guide for recycling instructions.
  11. If a non-HP print cartridge is in the printer, check the printer control panel for further instructions.
    NOTE: When replacing or changing a black print cartridge, a cleaning page will automatically print. This helps prevent speckles on the front or back of printed documents. A cleaning page can also be generated using the control panel or the HP Toolbox.
