Simple oly when you know how ;-)

I think you have a slight blockage, to solve:- (dont know which printer or PCyou have so ill do my best)

Click on Start
All programms
Pick your printer from the list
Open the software
You will have 2,3 or 4 options depending on your printer spec.

You need to 1st remove the cartridge
Print 1 page with no INK a message will pop up saying con not print need ink for example.
You then NEED to calibrate your cartridge, you need to find:-
1 Align Cartridge/Nozzle - Unblocks, and Sets up. (Syncronize)
2 Calibrate Black - unblock black
2 Calibrate Colour - unblock colours
3 Print test Page - See how it looks
5 Align again - Unblocks everything giving good ink flow and gets the print right close to 100%
6 print test page!

It shoud now work ;-)

Good Luck xxx

Check the ink cartridge for any type of plastic cover over the jets and any debris. Also pay close attention to proper positioning when you reinsert the cartridge.

Your printer is signalling that it is out of ink and that you should put a new ink cartridge in. Without a new ink cartridge it cannot print the pending faxes.

Canon MP140 fails to print


I don't think that has anything to do with reaching the board of 5000 copies. Your cartridges have no chips on them or anything. You might actually have a problem with your black ink cartridge, as the printer is telling you. Remove the black cartridge, gently wipe the contacts with a dry cloth and put it back in. Hold the "resume" button (triangle in circle) for about 10 seconds to try and reset your cartridge. If none of that works, I suggest you buy a new black ink cartridge.

Go into control panel, and right click on your printer and select properties. Under maintenance you will find the reset to show the inks as new. Also if you open the top cover while connected to your computer and then try to print a window will pop up asking if you put in new ink, answer yes and tell it which ink is new and it will be reset.

I got me a new kodak easyshare,and tried it out when i got a year ago,and i hooked it up,but it won't anything,i thought the ink was dried up,so i put all new ink in,but it still won't print anything,can...


Hi Ina,
Have you checked on the new cartridges to make sure there is no sticky tape over the print heads.
The manufacturers often put this tape over the print heads to prevent the ink from drying out or leaking out.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

ERROR CODE 3813


After I took out PrintHead and tried to clean it up again, I put it back in with Ink Cartridges and got error code 3813 - also couldn't fix it. Removed Ink Cartridges, turned printer off. Turn back on and it will forget about error code 3813 and will tell you to install Ink cartridges. Do that and error code 3813 is gone and ready to print.

A note: I did not find anything telling me I have to change printhead but my problem with black ink printing still exists so I will get new printhead and see if that problem gets fixed.

Black and yellow ink not printing


This is what worked (so far) with my Dell1.gif AIO A940 printer1.gif that wouldn't print black ink.

It worked for awhile when I chose photo/glossy paper, but then it quit printing again (see below).

PRINT, PROPERTIES, PAPER SETUP, SPECIALTY PAPER, PHOTO/GLOSSY


I got it to print, again, by putting SEVERAL papers in the feeder (instead of just 1) - there is a sensor that is supposed to automatically detect paper type, and it might not be working right, especially with one or only a couple of sheets.
