Question about HP PSC 1315 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Printer not working still, i was printing 5 pages, after completion the sign of check print cartridge continues to pop up on the machine, with orange blinking.
Tried cleaning the rollers, uninstalling and reinstalling the msg is not going away on the printer, unable to print anything anymore its very wierd. can u help me plz.
and yes i have tried turning it off
Check the date on your ink cartridge. I bet it has expired.
I had my printer stop in the middle of a print job. It was printing fine and suddenly would not print. So I refilled the cartridge with an ink kit I had on hand and reinserted it--no go! Then I opened a remanufactured cartridge I had bought some time ago and inserted it. No go, despite the fact I could see ink coming from the jets. I finally gave up and bought a new HP ink cartridge, and it worked just fine. But it bugged me why the new one would work and the other two that seemed just fine would not.
Later I learned that HP has a chip that reads the expiration date on the cartridges and that is what keeps those old ones from printing. I found one trick of setting my date on my computer back to a year earlier than the exp date on the cartridge. I saw the date on the remanufactured one I had tried earlier was 2005, so I set my computer date to today's date but year 2004. After forcing me to do print alignments several times and take the remanufactured cartridge out and put it back, I got it to print just fine. And that 2005 cartridge is what I am printing with right now.

Have you put in new ink cartridges?
Get the printer to move the carriage away from the side where it normally rests. Look inside there, and beneath the rest area, sometimes there is a little rubber stamp that presses up against the cartridges. It usually is filled with dry ink. Take a wet paper tower (probably several of them) and try to get as much ink as you can up. Also, there is sometimes a little rubber wiper that cleans the printhead as it passes by. Make sure this is clean also.
Now take the cartridges out. Get another clean paper towel, sopping with water. Press the nozzels down against it, but don't wipe. Just dab them, until you're getting some solid lines of ink on the towel.
Then look for the pattern of copper colored dots on the cartridge. Clean this with alcohol, and then look inside the printer where these dots (contacts) would line up inside the carriage. There will be a smilar pattern of dimples. Clean these with alcohol, and let it dry.
If possible, you might want to try to fit a towel damp with water beneath the print carriage (where the paper runs through). This collects a lot of ink sometimes. Be careful not to force anything.
Finally, put it all back together and try your print.

With the original chip now
attached to the compatible cartridge (you may need double sided tape to
get the chip to stick well to the cartridge), and with the cartridge
now in the printer, Press and hold the Reset/OK Button for 5 seconds to
reset the chips.
