Re: No cartridge found error

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

I changed the USB port that the printer was connected to and... like a charm with the new cartridges installed. Not sure what the problem was as windows recognized the printer and the drivers were correctly installed before the new cartridges even came into the picture.

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

It is probably one of the cartridges. Usually, when the message "wrong cartridge" appears, the cartridge is faulty.

Dell A960 cartridge problem

Does the black cartridge print? If not did you take the tape off of it? Error 50 is a generalized error reading relating to a number of cartridge problems. If the color cartridge is empty, it may be theproblem although I have not found this to be true on Dell printers. If you remove the color cartridge and reinstall it the reading will indicate its full (even though it isn't. This may solve the problem.

"cartridge memory error"

To identify the misbehaving cartridge just replace them one by one with another new, preferably HP cartridge. As far as why, HP makes lots of money by ?encouraging? users to buy genuine HP consumables. While HP?s cartridges are uniformly the best available they are are outrageously priced, thus the refill market. In an attempt to kill the remanufacturing market HP now embeds ?chips? in each of their LaserJet cartridges, unfortunately for HP refillers can replace them too. I?ve found several references to this error message and they are always linked it the printer discovering a remanufactured cartridge. In most of the other cases this automatically disables ?economy mode? printing but you can typically bypass the error message by hitting the enter (check) button on the printer.
