Wrong cartridge means you need a new printhead. qy6-0049-000. Around $59.00. Cartridge in this case refers to printhead, not ink cartridges.

Epson printer will not print any copies. I get the message "change cartridges 98/99." I did change both cartidges and can't clear the message and print copies.

i assume that everytime you try to print you get the same message. i sometimes get cartridge unrecognised on my epsom. I have to remove the cartridge, wipe the chip on the cartridge and reinsert.

If this doesnt work please specify printer model and if using original epsom cartridges.

Printer won't print, message says ''wrong cartridge'' I have the correct cartridges installed and it still will not print.

Would I be correct in thinking that you have just changed the cartidge?

If so, then remove the cartridge and check that you have removed all the transit seals that are fitted to prevent leakage in transit.

Won't accept color cartridge

Is this a manufacturer cartridge or a knockoff? Knockoff cartridges can for sure cause that message. If it is a new one, it is possible it may be the wrong one. Check your manual. If this is also not the problem, then your printer has an internal problem and needs repair. Hope this helps. Cheers.

“Lexmark does not support the refilling of its ink cartridges. Refilling the ink cartridges can cause them to leak, thus clogging or even damaging the print head. Any damage to your printer caused by refilled ink cartridges may not be covered under warranty”. Please use genuine Lexmark cartridges for best results.

Window shows "remove color cartidge and check" On screen dialog box states " color cartidge in wrong. I have had the HP V40 series since 2002 and never had this problem before. I have...

2 possible problems.
1 cartridge faulty or just needs a wipe
2 carriage ribbon damaged
Take the cartridge out and gently rub the gold contacts on the side with a piece of tisue. This might clear it. Take a look at the cartridge carriage in the printer and make sure the ribbon where all the gold contacts meet up with the contacts on the cartridge is not damaged in any way. sometimes the little metal spring which holds the cartridge pierces the ribbon at the back of the carriage and then the printer is unserviceable.
if rubbing the cartridge does not work and the ribbon is not damaged then assume you have a faulty cartridge - rare but it does happen
