The ink box full message on an ink jet printer means that the waste ink absorber counter has reached the preset limit. When the printer does a cleaning cycle or recharges the nozzles when a new cartridge is installed, the excess ink is left on these sponges. Using the printer after this point may lead to ink spilling out of the printer. The ink absorbers are usually at the bottom of the printer and difficult to reach. (They can be cleaned if the printer is disassembled. However, this is messy and you have to make sure to reassemble the printer correctly. Then there may be a way to reset the counter.) Unless the printer is still under warranty, it is probably better to replace the unit.

The printer probably can't run the cleaning step to flush the ink from the new cartridge to the nozzles unless the waste ink counter is reset. That's why it doesn't register that there is a new black cartridge.

I wish that I had better news for you.

I have enough black ink to print a few pages in black, but the printer won't print. What do I do?


I had a Epson printer that would not print or even allow me to use the scanner because the colored ink was out. Even though I had full black ink, it still would not let me print until i replaced the colored ink.

Caution lite flashing over cartridge of hp deskjet 940c. error message says that there is not color ink cartridge in printer. There is and the interface says the tank is full. It won't print...


Even though the interface says the cartridge is full, if the printer detects it being empty, odds are you will have to replace the color cartridge, even though you are only printing black.
You can try taking the cartridge out and cleaning the contacts with a pencil eraser and reseat the color cartridge. If no change, replace the cartridge.

    Missing color ink cartridge...have full black cartridge...Printer won't print.


    Hello, this is to be expected . You will need to have all cartridges installed and with ink in, even if you only want to print in black, or the printer will detect an error and won't work.

    MP140 can't recognise the black cartridge that I've just installed. Error code 4 - any ideas? I've tried the manual - nothing, and not much luck online - Thanks


    Error code 4 normally indicates that there is no unk, and the solution is by installing a genuine cartridge, Try to use Black PG40 remanufactured Canon printer ink cartridge. This cartridge is a high capacity cartridge which has been filled with 23ml of ink compared with the 16ml (Black) that you get with the originals. Compatible with: Canon Pixma MP140. if this error still occur it is better that you try the following procedure below:-

    When you insert a refilled ink cartridge into your Pixma MP140 printer you should get a warning about the refilled cartridge. You should also be prompted, asking if you wish to disable ink level detecting. Agree to do so, and you won’t get the warnings again because the ink levels won’t be monitored by the printer.

    Thanks

    Dell printer model# A940 50c error


    Test your cartridges.

    Remove the color ink cartridge then lower the cover of your printer. If the error message displays again, replace the black cartridge with a new one (or return the new one). Reinstall the color cartridge and remove the black ink cartridge then lower the cover. If the error message displays again, replace the color cartridge with a new color cartridge.
    Note: My manual indicated that the printer might have detected a short circuit in a cartridge. I returned a month old black cartridge got a new one and my printer is working fine now. Good luck.
