We have just replaced the yellow cartridge and the printer does not recognize it. All system checks show that the yellow cartridge is empty. We have just bought another and the same thing happens with the new cartridge. We have tried shuttin off the printer both at the switch and at the button

A bad printer cartridge usually causes this error. Even though it is brand new out of the box. I've gotten four in a row one time. When responding, please include the make and model  of the printer.

No Cartridges. Open Scanner cover, then reinstall ink cartridge. All Cartridges are full


Hi there,
No Cartridge will show on the display if the machine cannot recognize one of the cartridge or one of the ink is empty.
To make sure about the real issue unplug the mach from the power outlet then plug it back in after 10 seconds.
If the display show: "ink empty C" it means the cyan/blue needs to be replace. "ink empty M" it means the magenta/pink needs to be replace. "ink empty BK" it means that the black needs to replace. If the display shows "ink empty Y" it means that yellow needs to be replace.
Even if it looks like the cartridge is full, it really needs to be replace so that the machine will work again.
Hope this helps. Rate if it works. Thanks

Cartridge not recognized


Try to put hot water in each cartridge install, not so hot but normal hot that can disolve hard liquid component. When an inks happens not used more that 3 months it will become hard that might be possible the printer would not able to get the specific color because the cartridge getting problem.

****NOTE****

Make it sure the bottom part of the cartridge will not filled hot water where you can see the circuit outside, so make it sure only the sides of the cartridge filled with hot water.

Then make it sure after filling water you need to use dry cloth to make it dry before putting back again to your printer head.

Hope this will be helpful.

Printer keeps telling me that the yellow cart is empty and I have put a new one in


Are you positive it says the yellow cart is empty? Because that brother printer is designed to say that a cartridge is empty whenever ANY of the color cartridges are empty. Usually it doesn't tell you which one is really empty either. So even if you replaced the yellow cartridge and say, the black cartridge is empty, it still won't let you print until you replace that empty black cartridge, nor will you know which of the cartridges is empty unless you pull them out of the printer and manually check the ink levels.

Its pretty much a guessing game with those old brother ink printers.

Hope this helps :)

Epson printer says "cannot recognize ink cartridges".


Are you using genuine epson cartridges? Many generics simply dont work on the newer printers. Once the printer decides the cartridge is empty, it sends a signal to the chip and that's it. You might hear ink, but if the chip says empty you can't use it. It also has the annoying habit of doing this when there's still 10-15% of the ink left.
I use reusable cartridges from http://www.ccs-digital.com They hold 2/3 more ink and the chips automatically reset to full if you remove and re-insert the cartridge. Instead of replacing the entire cartridge when it's empty, you pop out an internal ink tank and replace just that. So you know the chip has already been recognized by your printer. The ink tanks cost under $3. I think these are a brilliant invention.

Display says I am out of yellow,


Hi, since you've already replace the yellow ink cartridge for several times and its not recognize. Your printer might have a defective printhead. You may take your printer to the nearest HP service center in your area so that they can look on your printer further.

Cartridge not recognized


Yes. Unplug machine from power. Wait 5 minutes. open scanner and take all the carts out. close scanner. plug machine to power again. machine will do the start up cleaning. Machine demands carts. insert NEW carts and give the answer in case you are asked by machine.

Do only change the carts when machine stopps for EMPTY cart. As long as it shows Nearly Empty everything is alright.

The machine has a drop counter and counts the ink drops down to zero when the flag is raised within the (nearly) empty carts. In case you take them out at that moment and reinsert again the ink inside will splash and raise the flag again. Control logic will be in trouble....
