You have to be vwery careful when refilling a cartridge. If you overfill, you will have to throw away the cartridge and buy a new cartridge. Worse, the ink might overflow and short the contact points. In that case you have to remove the cartridge and wipe the contact points with a lint-free soft cloth moistened with a cleaning liquid (I use surgical spirit). Good luck!

Joeguest2 - I have a Fargo Cardjet C7 Card printer machine. It has the error that it is not an authorized cardjet card cartridge or that it is damaged. It is brand new and is the correct brand - I have...

Sometimes the new cartridge can havve faulty contact and so cause this issue. So before we can point our fingers to the machine we need to confirm if the cartridge is good , since you have cleaned up the contacts on the machine and it was working well before the cartridge ran out , it will be best to compare this new one with the dealer who had sold to be tested before an opinion can be confirmed.
Also try a reset as a last attempt.

My printer says E 5

Try reseating the ink cartridges. The error references to either reseating or refilling the ink cartridges.
Since you have mentioned that it worked before with only black cartridge, try reseating both and check.

HP 690c does not recognize the cartridge

Yes, some printers do, but I do not think that this one does. The sound worries me, like maybe the cartridge is not installed properly? I would try to take out all carts, power down and disconnect the printer, wait about 5 minutes, then reconnect and reinstall the carts. Where did you get it refilled? That is what I do for a living, refilling and remanufacturing ink and toner carts....

Black Won't Print On MFC 420 CN

Use another new genuine (original brother) BK cart. Do the cleaning twice only for BK. Wait some time (4 hours). If the ink has dryed up, the cleaning ink will break up the dryed one. Do the cleaning again. If it doesnt work, please write again.

Epson C42+ Printer

Probably a broken gear, just maybe something like the pump mechanism which is driven from the paper feed rollor - unless of course you dropped something inside. it really is difficult to say with out looking, the reason I suggested the above is that I am assuming it is a cyclic noise rather than a random click, clues like this would help.
