The printer won't recognise the printer cartridges. I tried replacing older cartridges with new ones and even this doesn't work. They are genuine epson cartridges and the same ones I have always bought.

Check chip connnector at ink tank and at head carriage. It's may be dirty. Check status monitor? what ink tank not recognized. Press ink light (1-4 times) depends on number ink tank not recognized, press 1 time again, carriage will move co replacement position, unplug and plug again all ink tank, press ink light 1 more.

Printer not recognise new wilko ink cartridges


This model printer may only let you use genuine Canon/Epson printer cartridges. If you try to refill these ink cartridges it will not work because the has an embedded chip in the cartridge that detects the empty cartridge even though it has been refilled.

Computer cannot communicate with printer


Check if your printer is up to date. Just go to http://bit.ly/ghfW8H to download the firmware update.

Also, make sure that you're using genuine Lexmark cartridges. If there's an error message on your screen that your black ink is low even if you replaced it, you won't be able to print or scan. It will send a busy signal or communication not available to your computer. If this is the case, replace the cartridge.

If it still doesn't work work, try to reinstall the software: http://bit.ly/d3ftso

Epson workforce 520 won't recognise ink cartidges


When replacing ink on the Epson Workforce 520, Ensure the cartridges have the correct/same number of gold contacts. Ive seen them with 7 and 9 gold square contacts and they were otherwise identical, and the ones with 9 contacts threw an "cartridge not recognized" error on the printer's dispay.

I have a four in one Lexmark x5630 printer and have replaced cartridges with brand new black and colour 36 & 37xl. The printer won't even print a test page - just says that cartridge error co


The problem could be due to a communication failure between one of the printheads (cartridges) and the All-In One (AIO) or by a short in one if the printheads. Please follow the steps below to identify and fix cartridge issues:

  1. Make sure the printer is on.
  2. Open the printer cover. The print cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position, unless the All-In-One is busy. Note: If the carrier does not automatically move to the center, turn off the printer or unplug the printer from the power source and then carefully slide the carrier to the center.
  3. Remove both cartridges from the carrier.
  4. Close the printer cover.
  5. Re-brick your printer by pulling out the power supply - black box behind the printer where the power cord is plugged in to, and re-plug after 30 seconds.
  6. When the printer turns on, reinsert one cartridge first. Close the printer cover and check for any errors.
  7. If no error appears, reinsert the other cartridge. Close the printer cover.
  8. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the error to appear with a new genuine Lexmark cartridge. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.
Try to contact the store where you bought the new cartridge(s) and have them replace it. You may also contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for assistance (especially if you're using genuine cartridges).

My lexmark 3150 printer will not print anything in color even though the refill color cartridge is completely full


Lexmark does not recommend the use of refilled/remanufactured cartridges. These tend to degrade print quality and cartridge performance.
You can try to clean the cartridge nozzles. But if that doesn't help, I would suggest that you replace it with new genuine Lexmark cartridges.

Lexmark X2350 does not recognise the replacement cartridge as a genuine part even though it worked for a time


It must be a genuine, original, lexmark cartridge otherwise it will always give you problems. the cheaper versions and the refilled cartridges will always give you problems. the originals cost more but they are worth the money

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.

Printer says "Install ink cartridges correctly and then hit ok"


Try putting genuine ink it. If it still refuses to recognise the carts then it need to go back to Epson for a warranty repair. As an Epson eng 90% of the time, rubbish compatible cartridges are the source of such issues. They can even make the printer stop recognising genuine carts.

Do not mention to Epson that you used compatibles or they may refuse the warranty repair.
