Black printer ink not working as well at 100%

There are several possible issues with the refilled cartridges. Nozzle clogging; dirty contacts; static electricity transfered from your bare hands to contacts on cartridge damaging the circuitry; and more.

Clean the contacts on the cartridge using a pencil eraser. If that doesn't help, you should get a new cartridge and see if it fixes the problem.

Epson workforce 520 won't recognise ink cartidges

When replacing ink on the Epson Workforce 520, Ensure the cartridges have the correct/same number of gold contacts. Ive seen them with 7 and 9 gold square contacts and they were otherwise identical, and the ones with 9 contacts threw an "cartridge not recognized" error on the printer's dispay.

Black printer ink in HP Printer may fail to be recognized by the printer. Most times an error message will be sent indicating that something is wrong with the black print cartridge. Sometimes the printer may accept to print with the black ink, but the printouts may have horizontal lines and very illegible letters. In such a case a manual cleaning of the print head should be carried out. In doing the manual cleaning, one should spray Windex heavily on paper towel and wipe off the surface of the print head.

Empty cartridge

HP Deskjet 3915 Inkjet Printer.

Empty cartidge status is related to the refilled catridges.

Please do not use any refilled cartriges in the above printer.

There is a chance of leakage of ink as a result the entire printer will not work properly.

Buy genuine HP Catridges and install the same in the printer.

If the problem still persits, please lodge a complaint with local HP office and get the cartidge is replaced with a new and genuine one.

Try to make user of Annual Maintence serice contract with local authorized ho Vendor for regular servicing of this printer.

Sounds like the printer thinks the cartridge is empty. Old PSC units had a 3 cartridge memory - you kept 3 cartridges and cycled them to trick the printer into thinking it had just received a brand new cartridge, rather than a refilled one.

Ip1600 refilled Canon color catridge not recognized

I have not had good luck with refills, or off brand ink. The factory stuff does not give you this grief. The Canon is a good unit, give it the good stuff. Do not use 'clean cartrige' too much or you will get the waste tray full, and that's the end of your machine.

Refilled cartidges

i believe u need to do printing alignment after putting a refilled cartridge, so it would detect that there is a new cartridge installed.

see link for changing cartridge
