With the power off press and hold the cartridge cleaning button and the paper feed button. While holding the 2 buttons turn the power on. When the light for paper feed begins to flash let go of the buttons and immediately press and hold the cartridge cleaning button for at least 10 seconds. The unit will cycle then go to ready. The problem is that the counter for the waste ink cleaning pad has reached the limit.

I have an HP Designjet 430 with colour kit. Hasnt been used for a while (maybe 2 months). Cartidge light flashes. Have cleaned all cartridges and checked that they are installed correctly and are full but...

Hi Laura.
A trick I've used from years back seems to work, if jetsare maybe blocked from dried ink.

You will need:
An old or disposable container and clean rag.
Some clean tissues.
Hot water.
Sheet of paper. Newspaper will do.

Cleaning jets:
Pour boiling hot water into container.
Dip base of cartridge 1 into water until you see an ink-cloud then remove and pat dry with clean rag.
Rest at angle on paper.
Repeat for other cartridges.
Use tissue to gently wipe any remaining water drops.

Reinsert in printer.

Regards, Clive.

My cartridge light wont go off even when cartridges are replaced

there might be a problem with the cartridges carriage, find a new one and replace it because generally it can't be fixed. You can also buy a second hand HP DJ series 900 cartridge carriage, it's exactly the same piece ant it's 100% compatible.

Anyways, there's always a slight chance to fix it without buying another one: with a small clothe (or cotton bud) impregnated in alcohol, cleanse the cartridge carriage on its inside, specially in the copper tips that makes contact with the ink cartidge. It might solve the problem, but it isn't a flawless technique

MP530 Print Cartidge Problems

Hi shortiered,

Sounds like your orginal driver installation has become corrupted. Try this: completely remove unit and its software from your computer, not forgetting to unplug all cables. Go to the folling url(copy and paste in the address bar) for the latest software for your unit. It's easiet if you create a new folder on your desktop and name it mp530 drivers, save down load here. Install software first, reboot and plug your cables in, windows will reconize new hardware and install it for you or it may ask if you have installation disk or installation file, click yes and direct download to the folder you created for your new drivers. I hope this helped a little, if not, hit me back, we have other options.

Thanks for using

Sincerly, cyyyd7

Machine does not recognize refilled office max cartridge (black)

try to clean the cartridge on the copper side with tissue with and alcohol maybe the contact points doesnt meet or the cartidge itself is already defective. try also use an empty good cartridge just to to determine wich cartridge is defective.

Do you still have the old cartridge? The new one could be defective. Put the old one back in and see if problem goes away..

Re:Canon Multipass C3500ex

Don, have you unplugged the printer for a few minutes? first the power plug, see if that clears it. If not, unplug it from the computer, reboot the computer, then plug printer back in. If not that,when an ink cartridge is refilled (depending on the model) the printer needs to be tricked into thinking a "new" cartidge is being installed. They make their money from the ink, not as much the printer. You may need to check the owners manual to see if the is the case. I have had to use tape to block off certain contacts, then remove the cartidge and block off another section of contacts, then remove tape all together and re-insert the cartridge.
