SOURCE: Resetting Toner count onprint settings PRINT SETTINGS report

I don't suggest refilling cartridges as I work on printers every day but seems to me that you have done everything correctly the only thing I think you have done is either filled with incorrect toner thus giving a incorrect reading or when moving gear you have dislodged the pin that activates the reset procedure.

Thanks J

SOURCE: Samsung ML-2152W

The problem is that the cartridge you re using was reloaded with toner, but the remanufacturing process did not include replacing the chip. The ML2150 and the 2151N do not read the toner's chip on boot, but the 2152W does. So you either have to get a cartridge that has a new chip or get a new, genuine, Samsung cartridge.

SOURCE: Toner Not Installed - After replace black

This is actually a desigbn fault on the magicolor printers. Underneath the toner rack is the 3 pin chip reader - normally white and plastic with 3 metal contacts sticking out.

it is at the bottom of the printer so very often toner drops onto it and the sensors dont work, it also takes a bit of a beating as the cartridges rotate. Its very easy to replace - but you need the part,

Minolta should have put it at the top rather than the bottow where it gets covered in dust.

these guys helped me a lot

SOURCE: minolta 2430dl X toner not installed

I had this same problem and discovered the CORRECT solution!! The Crum reader is not the issue. That is for reading the level of the toner and telling the printer when iti is low or out. The "Cartridge not installed" issue is caused by poor contacts on the LEFT side of the printer. Look at the toner cartridge on the LEFT side as you are holding the colored cartridge latch. Thos two copper contacts make contact with the 'springs on the left side of the cartridge holder. I user an eraser, alcohol and air to clean the contacts on the toner catreidge but ESPECIALLY the spring contacts on the outside of the cartridge holder. You should clean all four. I went a step further and took the left circuit board off, clean all the "spring contacts and took the black holder with long copper contacts out and cleaned those. The printer is now like a brand new printer. No errors at all!!

How do I do a factory reset on Samsung xpress c1860fw printer? I bought it used and there were no instructions or manuals with it.

As far as i know; you may reset most of the printers by pressing power button constantly about 10 seconds.

Installed new ink cartridge and will not show that cartridge has been installed- tried 28A and didn't work - picked up 28 cartridge and installed same problem

Please note that if you have refilled your 28A cartridge, it can no longer register it's ink level. However, since you also tried a different cartridge which did not fix the problem, I would recommend you to contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

Hello, My HP PSC 1510 doesnt works because is written incopatible cartridge. I tried to clean contacts and so on but it still doesnt work. what to do?

Incompatible cartridge shows that it believes that the ink cartridge installed in not compatible with this printer. It means that the printer can't use the cartridge that is installed. You need to return the cartridge and get the one that is made for your exact printer.

Take Care!

The printer is not recognising the new ink cartridges after replacements

Was the printer connected to your computer when the cartridges were installed? If not then this is probably the reason for it not recognizing them. Turn off the printer, remove cartridges, turn the printer on again. All the while the usb should remain connected to your computer which is turned on.
Once the printer registers or shows via a pop up that there are no cartridges installed, open the front cover and install the cartridges. This time it should communicate the ink levels to your PC.
I once had this problem and till the end (i had not done the above method since i didnt know then) it never told me that my cartridge was full; which it always showed as empty. The printing however was never affected. You should try this method and if it doesnt work dont worry, your printer will print as before on full cartridges.

Cartridges not being recognized

I resolved this problem (hopefully) by downloading an updated printer driver from the Cannon USA site.

Hi i need help with printer problem

Your printer works with the BCI-6 cartridges, that are in fact just ink-tanks, the printhead being apart of the tanks.

So if the cartridges are not empty, it cannot be because of them.

Did the printer worked fine at the beginning, or is this an initial problem?

If the problem occured just a while ago, you should consider that NOT PRINTING a long time (30 days) with a printer can lead to ink drying out in the printhead, clogging the nozzles. If you have some tehnical skills, you can remove the cartridge and desassembly the printhead (where the cartridges are in) and do the following:

Put a paper-tissue on a small plate (like a coffee-cup plate), then put some boiling water on it, just 2~3mm of water over the tissue.
Put the printhead with the nozzles part downside on the tissue, in the hot water.
Let it stay there in the water 30 min.
Put the cartridges back on the printhead (without installing it in the printer), rap it in an other clean tissue, than shake it strongy as if you want to force ink to get out trough the nozzles.
Get the cartridges again out of the printhead, install it in the printer, then install the cartridges again and run a few cleaning processes from the printers maintenance software.

It should work. If you dont have the tehnicall skills needed, Canon gotcha, or you can visit a local specialist to make all this for you, they usualy have better equipmens, as ultrasonic cleaners and special solvents that makes all this easyer.

Rate the solution if it helped you!
