Can anyone help me with a Code:P on a Epson PrinterMate Deluxe 500 with a Print Pack T5570? OK so while trying to clean the print heads many times it gives me a Code:P and says to replace the cartridg

My main thought is why do you need to clean the print head so much, because on nearly all Epson machines I have come across actually use up ink during the cleaning process and if you clean the head too often you empty the cartridges, which are not exactly huge capacity in the first place, very quickly. The circuit board/chip on the cartridge records the amount of ink used, and a lot of cleaning may run one of the colours out. I give below a link to the Epson site which has a number of links about your printer which may help. I found the Product Information Guide quite good, especially the last few pages which referred to the head cleaning.

I have also found the following company very good for inks, both original and compatible. (Having seen the price of Epson original cartridges I'm not surprised you are a little miffed about their lack of longevity!!!

How do i change an ink cartrige in a canon 160 printe

The Canon Pixma inkjet printer is an all-in-one printer, scanner and copier capable of printing high-resolution photos. One handy feature is a slot for a memory card so you print photographs directly from your camera. It can also print completely without any border for full-sheet photos. Printing photos and other high-fidelity documents uses up ink more quickly, and you will probably need to replace at least one of your cartridges every three to six months, a process that should take you about three to five minutes.

1.urn on the printer and check the LCD screen for an indication of which ink cartridges are low. Note that recycled ink cartridges sometimes read "Ink low" even when they still have ink, so print a test page if you're not sure.

2.Expose the ink tray by lifting the entire LCD control panel, which is attached to the underside of the copier tray.

3.Pull out the used ink cartridge by pulling straight up from the print head, and dispose of them safely and carefully by putting them in a sealed bag.

4.Remove gently any packaging from the new ink, after giving it a few shakes. Pull off the protective tab on the cartridge, insert the new cartridge into the print head and push down until you feel a click. Close the printer lid and let the printer reset the ink tray.

5.Print a test page to make sure the new ink works. If it doesn't, you may have forgotten to remove the protective tab under the cartridge.

Printer is not registering new cartridge, which is full and an HP "02" . Printer was out of cyan blue for a while, printing in black and white, then replaced it. Ink is flowing, checked with...

New cartridges that are not HP brand can sometimes give these errors. If they are HP brand then the issue is with the sensor that reads the cartridges "chip" The ink levels are not read like the fuel in your car, there is a page counter on the cartridge and when it hits 0 then it assumes there is no ink. So the issue seems to be it is not reading the chip correctly. Try removing all the cartridges. turn the printer off for 10 mins and replace the cartridges 1 by 1. This can sometimes correct the issue. If not the pins that read the cartridges chip can be checked for dirt of dry ink that may be interfering with the pins touching the cartridge. these pins are in the Cartridge holder for each colour, inside the printer. use a torch to see them properly.
Good Luck. Regards GM

Hi I have Brother dcp 350 printer. I have the error 46 unable to print/clean i cant get the printer back to normal functions. I have change the inks (all) and I am still get the same error message 46....

The messages unable to print, unable to clean, unable 36, error 46 and error 32 are all print head errors.

1. Remove all the ink cartridges from the machine
2. Clean the contacts on the cartridges as well as inside the machine itself with a small amount of warm water or alcohol on a cotton swab until no ink comes off on the swab.

Note: if any of the other cartridges are low, empty, leaking or bulging replace them

3. Then turn off the machine and unplug it for 70 seconds
4. Plug it back it and wait for the insert cartridges message
5. Insert the cartridges and check to see if the problem is still there. If it is it means the print head has failed and in order to fix this the print head inside the printer needs to be replaced. The print head is the part of the printer that puts ink from the cartridges onto the page

Unfortunately this can sometimes cost more to replace then the machine itself.

How do i change my ink cartridges in my kexmark x3650

Turn the printer on.
Lift the lid that covers the print-head mechanism.
In a few seconds, the print-head will slide to a position from where you can "unlock" and then remove an ink-cartridge.

How to change printing cartridges

Here's how to change your cartridges: 1 Make sure the printer is on. 2 Lift the scanner unit. The print cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position, unless the printer is busy. printmastert_25.jpg

3 Press down on the cartridge carrier latch to raise the cartridge carrier lid. printmastert_26.jpg

4 Remove the used print cartridge. Note: If you are removing both cartridges, repeat step 3 and step 4 for the second cartridge.

Sometimes the ink cartridge carrier won't automatically move to its loading position even when the printer is on and the cover is open. Follow the steps below:

1. Unplug the printer from the power source.

2. With the cover open, hold the solid white strip that connects from the carrier assembly to the ink cartridge carrier and gently slide the cartridge carrier to the center of the printer.

3. Remove the used cartridges.

4. Load the new cartridges. Close the cover.

5. Plug the printer back to the power source.

Riso rz220UI doesn't deliver ink to master evenly. Sometimes blank in the iddle,sometimes totally blank. Tried replacing the ink cartridge to no avail.

This sound like a print head issue ...if you already checked the cartridges and they have ink ..and you shake them a little to be sure they are not dried ...than all you can do is clean the print head and reset it ..(look in the maintenance menu to see if you have any reset for the ink ..and print head..or //just try to reset them by unplugging ..and keep the button pressed and plug it while pressing the button ..It should beep a few times and this should reset it .. (in case there isn't any other reset available )
if cleaning the print-head would not make any difference should change it ...
Also reinstall the driver to eliminate a software error..

Printer is confusing.sometimes it says, "problem comunicating with the printer" sometimes it prints in notepad,sometimes don't. newly installed cartridges but still has question mark on the black some

There were times that the printer would give you that message. In order for the computer to properly recognize the printer, here's what you are going to do:

1. Remove the cartridge from the printer.
2. Turn the printer off and unplug it from the wall outlet.
3. Put the cartridge back while the printer is off.
4. Give for about 2 minutes.
5. Turn the printer back on.

Try these steps.

the messages you get for cartridges other than the original are not trustful. You will get the right reading for original(from Brother) cartridges. Some ink is poor for printing photo quality.

not any refillable ink is right for printing photos, sometimes too dark, sometimes you don't get the right mix of colors.

Yellow Light on HP K550 indicating open panel will not turn off.

If the printer is connected to your computer - check to see if there is a blinking Red exclamation point / printer icon in the system tray. Sometimes mousing over this icon to see the tooltip is the only way to figure out what error message the printer is trying to tell you.

For us - when this happens, the printer is complaining about an "incompatible" ink cartridge - even though 99% of the time it will print from that cartridge without problems. So try removing and re-inserting all of your ink cartridges too.
