I have a HL4040CN copier. When the message comes up that ink is low, how can I tell what color ink cartridge needs replacing

You're just going to have to keep printing until you see which cartridge is getting dry. It'll be either the black one or the colour one. This way you won't buy the wrong cartridge. If you print black text and it starts to come out grey then it's the black cartridge that needs to be replaced. The same with colour, if the picture looks faded then you'll need a new colour cartridge.

Epson sx200 printer, wont print black ink only

Many printers especially Photo ones also use colour even when printing Black. so you do need to replace the spent colour cartridge.

If you only need to print in black get a B&W printer not a colour one.

HP DeskJet 850c will not print colour

It could well be the printer head (the area where the cartridge locks into the printer) has gummed up contacts. Take a soft, lint-free cloth and wipe down gently wipe down the face of the contacts. Keep wiping until all residue is removed. Reinstall a color cartridge and then run the printer's software alignment utility (this is part of the software that comes with the printer).

Put in new ink and it is telling me out of ink and will not let me print anythings.. How do you reset ink

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

Black Printer cartridge

It will tell you the colour is low, regardless of the format in which you are printing. I don't believe Canon provide a way for you to disable this for their printer range, so you'll need to put in the new colour cartridge to get rid of this error. (you should however, be able to print whilst receiving this message)
