One or more ink carts aredodgy, fit gen new brother inks (x4)

On inks carts there is a flag inside them that normally floats, when it sits down due to ink level being low it blocks a photocell to stop machine from working, it needs to do this to stop any air getting in ink lines, so inks may appear to have ink in them but will not work, on some refill/aftermarket carts flag gets stuck

My lexmark printer works fine and the ink cartridges are full but there is no print on the page ?


A lot of the ink jet printers have a copper color strap on the ink cartridge this contains the heads. If you are refilling the cartridges or have let the printer sit for a long time the heads can get built up dry ink stuck in them. Try taking the cartridge out and physically cleaning it using rubbing alcohol. If this does not work try replacing the cartridge.

Check that the cartridge is properly i9nstalled. Unplug unit for about 5 minutes. Plug back in, it should re-boot and work.

There is a lot of problems that can cause the red light to come on, toner cartridge problems, waste toner tank full, paper jam. The only way to know for sure is to check the smart panel software to see what the printer is reporting as the problem, then you can attempt to fix it.

Printer not printing giving a black toner catridge not installed error and a new catridge is installed



Are you using a factory new ink cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
If you are using factory new cartridges, then please call the manufacturers Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

Printer is blinking. I installed a new ink


Sounds like your cartridge may be unseated or it is really incompatible. You do not state clearly that you have printed successfully with this cartridge before.

What appears to be fine on the outside may not reflect whats going on inside. Before you spend more money try this, it can't hurt.

Try updating your printer drivers:

Create a new folder on your desktop and name it newhpdrivers(substitute your manufacturer in new name). Un-intall printer and printer software completely. Go to manufacturers website and navigate to their drivers/downloads or support menu. Select your model, choose the relevant software and download to the new folder you created on your desktop. Power down your computer. Reconnect the printer to the computer and turn printer on. Windows will detect new hardware and ask if you have the manufacturers install cd or a location to check for install files. Direct the wizard to your new software, follow the rest of the setup instructions and your done

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 )
