Printer not accepting new black ink cartridge

The printer was flashing that I was out of Black ink, replaced with brand new cartridge and reset, but printer will not clear and accept new cartridge. Tried replacing the new one thinking maybe I had a faulty new cartridge, but it still will not accept the new cartridge (black).

If you have just installed a new cartridge and you still see an ink related error, the cartridge may be incorrectly installed.
Follow these steps to make sure the cartridges are correctly installed:
Make sure the CD/DVD tray is not inserted in the printer.
Make sure the printer is turned on, but the green power light is not flashing.
Open the printer cover.
Press and release the ink button. The power light begins to flash.
Caution:
Do not hold down the ink button for more than 3 seconds or the printer will start to clean the print head.

Put that cartridge in and perform a head cleaning process, and allignment... follow the procedure (2 or 3 times if needed) and in the end, shut down the printer, disconnect usb cable (both end), then wait for some time, aprox. 20 sec. and then put both end in again, turn printer on and wait for ready signal or some sort of confirmation that all is ok... If not, replace or update the printer driver and software, or reinstall all printer software.

I replaced the black ink with a refill cartridge and its saying black ink volume unknown. went back and got a new refill cartridge says same thing...please help?


All cartridges are "tracked", which basically just means that when you run the cartridge down on one printer, if you put it in another it will still appear to be empty. With refilled cartridges, your printer may see it as empty because it has been empty once before. If your printer accepts it and still prints, your best option is just to let it go. Print with it and just ignore the message. You'll know when you need a new one because your printouts will start to fade or streak.

If your printer won't accept it or print at all, you can try performing a hard reset to try and trick the printer into thinking it has a new cartridge.

1. Open the cover and take out the cartridges.
2. With the cover open, unplug the power source from the printer.
3. Wait 20 - 30 seconds for the printer to reset.
4. Install the cartridges and close the cover.
5. Plug in the power source.
6. Turn the printer on and let it go through its regular startup process.

The hard reset option is not a guaranteed fix, but it is a good idea to try; it works on many models and brands very well but there are some that fail to recognize the refilled/remanufactured cartridges after a reset.

Black printer ink in HP Printer may fail to be recognized by the printer. Most times an error message will be sent indicating that something is wrong with the black print cartridge. Sometimes the printer may accept to print with the black ink, but the printouts may have horizontal lines and very illegible letters. In such a case a manual cleaning of the print head should be carried out. In doing the manual cleaning, one should spray Windex heavily on paper towel and wipe off the surface of the print head.

My Epson NX415 does not recognize refilled and reset cartridges. What can I do about it?


Don't let your ink levels drop below 25% before refilling and resetting your cartridges. There is an inner and an outer chip on these cartridges. The inner chip disables the outer chip when it's contacts are no longer bathed in ink. So, it doesn't matter if you "reset" the outer chip after refilling your empty cartridge because the chip was disabled. I'm really curious how you refilled these cartridges yourself without souring yourself on refilling from the experience. I own a Cartridge World ink refilling store and I refilled a set of these cartridges when we had replacement chips available (we don't now because our chip distributor was violating Epson patents) and it was an absolute mess, took forever, and the cartridges still didn't work in our test printer.

well, you need to get NEW cartridges because there is a NON-resetable ink level sensor, once that detect no ink is left in the cartridge, it reports a empty cartridge to the printer, no way to change that, the only fix is to replace the cartridge with a new one, on epson printers you can reset the sensor, most other brands you cant

Printer wont print black.already replaced with new ink but still wont print black


did you take the tape off the new cartridge and is the print head burned out for the black? if you installed the diagnostic's on it then run it and see what it says, otherwise expect the print head to be cooked, however it is possible to get a bad ink cartridge try tapping it on your finger and see if ink comes out if it does not then the ink cartridge is dried out or no good, about %15 of print cartridges are bad on just about any brand printer some more than others.

"Remove and check color cartidge."


ok the problem is very common.initially remove both the cartridges.then unplug the printer from main outlet and plug back in.this will reset the printer circuit.then after u on the printer bring back the cartridge carriage to cartridge installation position.then first clean the circuit in the carriage that touches and sense your cartridge circuit with a damp cloth.both colour and black carriage circuit.then clean the cartridge circuit too even if its new.then install both the cartridges and close the door and off the printer again and on it after 30 seconds atleast.then check it should work normally.
