Please remove all cartridges. Using a moist cloth clean the golden contacts on cartridge as well as printer. DO NOT touch nozzle of cartridge. Dont insert the cartridge yet.

Please do this :
1. Remove the power cable from printer. Remove the USB cable that connects printer to computer (remove it from printer as well as computer's usb port)
2. Press the printer power button and keep pressed for 3 minutes then release
3. Now plug in the power cable and usb cable (connect printer to computer) and power on the printer.

Now insert cartridges and see if error goes away.

You can also click the link below for any future troubleshooting with the printer. It's a self help guide.

The cartridge indicator light continue to flash even after changing the cartridge. What could be wrong?


Often times. the cartridge is not seated properly, so take out the cartridge and put it back in again. Make sure it clicks in place. Also, make sure that the protective tape is removed from the ink ports on the new cartridge..

If this does not work, do a reset by holding down the power button on the printer for a few seconds. Remove the power cord from the printer and wait a few minutes before plugging the printer back in and turning on the power.

If this solution was helpful, please remember to leave positive feedback for me.

Thanks,

Brian

My 450c suddenly developed a problem with the cartridge light flashing,I've tried changing the 4 catridges cleaning and pressing all the buttons to no avail I can't get the machine to do anything.Has...


John I suspect that the cartridge light is flashing too. Raise the cover to service the print cartridges, remove one cartridge at a time and reinsert it. While doing that watch the ready light. It should blink 3 times even with the lid raised to acknowledge a good cartridge. If one by one all the cartridges give 3-flash ready lights then the problem may not be cartridges or they may not be primed.

HP Laser Jet 1320. Orange light next to triangle symbol keeps flashing. This began after a paper jam. I cleared the paper jam but can not get the light to stop and so it wont print. I have shut it off...


The Amber light is designated as the "Ink Error" light. With regards to a Hewlett Packard printer, the Amber light is indicating that one of the Ink Cartridges (Tri-Color/Black) is empty, defective, unrecognizable, or just simply needs to be changed. The procedure is; lift up the front cover, look at the Black Ink Cartridge, and examine the Ink Level Window on the Cartridge, located at the center of the Cartridge. If the square window appears to be a solid Green then that means the cartridge is completely full. If it is Half Green/Half Black then it is indicating that the cartridge is half way full, and if the square window is completely Black, then the cartridge is completely empty. Also, remove and examine the Tri-Color Cartridge. If the Tri-Color Cartridge feels very light or if the Tri Colors on the bottom of the Cartridge appear to be discolored i.e. All Magenta, All Cyan, or All Yellow, then the Cartridge should immediately be changed. After replacing the Black or Tri-Color Cartridge, your printers Green Power Light will flash and allow you to continue your print job
You can also try:
Clean the cartridge and carriage contacts with a cotton swab moistened with water. If you have refilled the cartridges don't assume that they will still work. If cleaning doesn't help you may have a failed cartridge even if it is not refilled.
If you are getting a grinding noise, clean the carriage rod with alcohol and lubricate it with a few drops of Tri-Flow, available in 2 oz. squeeze bottles at cycle shops.

If I have helped please rate my post...I will always do my best to help

Problem with new ink cartridge


More that likely the refilled ink cartridges are faulty and should be replaced. While some folks have pretty good luck with refilled cartridges, it is generally better to stick with the new ones.

As to the problem with old cartridges, keep in mind that the estimated ink levels are just that - estimates. However, if your printer has an option for cleaning the cartridges, try that before chunking them. Take them out, put them back in, and run the cleaning process. Sometimes the nozzles can get clogged up and running the cleaning process will clear them up. ( DO NOT TRY TO CLEAN THE CARTRIDGES MANUALLY!)

If none of this helps, you will more than likely just need to get some new cartridges. - Graye

Printer will not print


More info needed here. Are any lights on or flashing? Have you tried going through the cartidge instsallation process again (but just taking out and putting back the same cartridges when told to put in new ones)? Are the unrecognised cartridges genuine Epson or compatibles? Have you tried putting genuine Epson cartridges in (even empty ones will do) to see if they are recognised? A response to these question will permit me to give you much more specific help.
