Printer says (new) cardridge is empty - cardridge is ok

I have a new cardridge. It is working (tested with page alignment), but printer says cardridge is empty.
When I want to print a regular page, Dell blocks it and say's the cardridge is empty...
Is it possible to switch off the ink management system?

Try restarting your printer and your computer.

This usually works for me.

Replacement ink cartridge needs to be installed. Cannot locate cartridge housing.


These instructions are for color or black cardridges. Turn on the printer by pressing the power button. Flip down the front access door by grasping it on the upper right corner (just under the scanning bed) and pulling it down toward you. the cardridges will automaticly move to the right give you access to them. Press down on the top of the ink cartridge. This will release the cartridge. Slide it forward and out of the machine. Peel off the cover from the ink cardridge. This is a pink piece of plastic /tape like lift-off tab. Lift it up and off the cartridge.

Put the new cartridge inside of your Officejet J4580 by inserting it, label facing upward, into the open slot. Press it back into the unit and down lightly. You will hear it click into place. Close the access door. Wait for the alignment process to complete that will most likely require you to print a alignment page and place it in the scanner bed then press "OK".

I think thats about it

Installed a new HP black ink cartridge; the officejet 8500 pro will not print any black print. The color ink works okay.


First print a self test page on the printer and check if you have black print on it or not.

To do that Go to your printer :-

Press Setup button -->Go to print report-->hit ok--> use arrow keys and choose the self test page.--> hit ok.

If you have the self test page fine then try to make a black copy from the printer.

Put a black font printout on the scanner glass facing downwards. Press copy black

Check if you have the black ink working.

If yess then there is some thing on the system you are doing wrong. May be the printer properties needs to be set or some settings needs to be checked.

If no then try to clean he ink cartridge and try to align the cartridge on the printer.

To align Do this

Press setup-->use arror keys to navigate to tools -->and choose the option align cartridge or align printer.

If you do not find the option in the tools option try looking for it in the print report...

On the computer Go to printer under control panel and right click on the printer and go to print prefernces --> go to the TAB called colors and under color options -->choose print in greyscale--> and under that choose the Black only option. --> hit apply and then hit ok.

Now try printing..!

Let me know if any of these steps works....

All toner cardridges are at least 1/2 full but


in the printer menu, scroll to Special Pages and print a Config page, Menu Map and also the Test Pages. If these appear to print colour properly the problem may be in the driver. Check the quality tab in the preferences is not set to B/W. If the problem still appears to be with the printer after printing the internal pages then recheck after restarting the printer.

I just installed a new color cartridge in my 8650 Lexmark printer. The ink cartridge acts as if it is empty. Printer keeps telling me to align cargridge. Worked perfectly before the new ink installed. Not...


  1. On your computer, go to "Start," "Programs," "Lexmark Series." Click "Lexmark Control Program."
  2. Step 2 Select the "Cartridges" tab. Click "Change Cartridges." The Change Cartridges screen appears, displaying the animated instructions for installing or changing cartridges. When you have finished viewing the animation, click the "Finished" button.
  3. Step 3 Remove the tape covering the print head of the new print cartridge. Insert the new print cartridge as shown in the animation.
  4. Step 4 When the "Choose Cartridges" screen appears, select the cartridge(s) you installed in your printer from the list boxes. Click the appropriate box to reset the ink levels to full. Click "OK."
  5. Step 5 The Automatic Alignment screen appears. Click "Align" to align the print cartridges for best print quality. The printer prints a page with a bi-directional alignment pattern. On the printed test page, locate the number that comes closest to forming a straight line under the bi-directional alignment pattern. Enter that number as the bi-directional alignment setting in the Alignment Cartridge dialog box. Click "OK."

Empty colour cardridge, cant print black and white


Hi!

I'm afraid that most printers nowadays simply refuse to print unless you have ink in BOTH cartridges. No workaround. At least with an
Epson you have the possiblily of buying much less expensive generic refills...If you do this always try and find reviews of the brand of refills...caveat emptor! (buyer beware)

Sorry..
