SOURCE: The printer tells me all the ink cartridges are empty and refuses to print

Hi Blackburn,

Get you some rubbing alcohol and Q-tips. Disconnect the power from the printer and remove the Ink Cartridges. Using the q-tips and soak them with the alcohol. Clean the electrical connections in each of the cartridge ports. You might go through several Q-tips before geting them cleaned up good. If necessary use Finger nail polish remover instead of Alcohol to get any contaminants off of the connections. Test a site with the fingernail polish remover first before dabbing it all over. I am afraid that it may eat up the electrical connections.

SOURCE: Printer reports always "out of ink"

The Stylus CX 4600 gets its jets clogged easily when you don't use it every day or so. Cycle through several times of cleaning the jets and printing the results, until it comes out right. I have had to do this as many as 6 times to get the test print to have no gaps, but eventually, it will always work if you clean them enough.

I have also had new cartridges report empty. I called the aftermarket source where I got them, and they had me return the cartidge for a free replacement. The replacement worked. Sometimes, paying 20% of the Epson cartridge price gets me junk cartridges.

SOURCE: Epson RX420 new black ink cartridges displaying empty

Normal 0 Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

I have just changed all the ink's in an Epson d120


If you replaced with "genuine" ink-cartridges, then it should report "full".

If you replaced with "refilled" ink-cartridges, then the company that refilled forgot to "reset" the electronics inside the ink-cartridge, in order to report "full".

Or, perhaps, the software "toolbox" that came with the printer has a button "I have installed new cartridges, please re-verify the ink-levels" ??? Click that button.

Printing problem


The printer determines the amount of ink left in the cartridge by counting the number of ink "shots" when printing, head cleaning etc. This information is stored in the "chip" on the cartridge. Thus, it is not an actual measurement of the ink left, but an estimate calculated by subtracting the total shots from the original full ink quantity. This estimate can sometimes be grossly in error, usually due to a cartridge replacement not being carried out correctly, or a cartridge that wasn't, in fact, properly filled. In other words, your cartridge (or cartridges) may actually be empty, even though the Status Monitor says there is ink in it/them.

You do not say if this problem is one cartridge, or all four. If it is the latter, then something is clearly amiss, since it is unlikely all four would be erroneously reported as containing ink when actually empty.

However, the first step is to buy a new set of cartridges - you can get a set of compatible cartridges from E-Bay very cheaply. You can save the old ones - tape up the nozzles to keep them from drying out - you may be able to use them again when you know what is going on.

Make sure you go through a proper cartridge replacement process so that an ink charging cycle is carried out.

If the new cartridges produce no printing, try a couple of head cleans and nozzle checks. If this still produces no print, report back with a new comment on what you have done so far.

HP C6280 with new ink cartridges shows cartridges empty


First make sure you are placing the right
color cartridge into the right slot.
Most Printers are touchy about the
installation of ink cartridges. If the
instructions say to press the cartridge
into the slot until you hear a loud click,
that's what they mean. If at first you
don't succeed, remove the cartridge and
reinsert it into the slot again and press
on it hard till it clicks.
Then your printer should work properly.
Hope this is of some help. Bud

OfficeJet 9130 incorrectly reporting empty ink cartridge


Look to see if there is dirt or other debris inside the Magenta Ink slot. There is probably something there disrupting the ink flow. Use a flash light to see if ink is clogged. Use Acohol with Q tip to clean the area and reinsert the ink cartridge. Make sure the printer is off and the slot has dried before turning the printer back on.
Hope this helps. Helen

HP Photosmart D7360


HP support decided it could not be repaired on line, agreed to replace it but found it was a few days out of waranty...so it is dead in the water. Probably not cost effective to repair it.

Cx5500 all in one and use T0731-4 ink cartridges


If you are using a compatible cart and the printer has twice reported the cart as empty when they are new, chances are there is a problem with the printer. You can buy a chip reseter off ebay for a couple of bucks and try resetting the cart. If the machine still reports the cart is empty you either have dodgy chips on your carts or the printer is having problems reading the chip, This could be caused by a bent pin/contact in the print head cartridge receiver.

Frequent problems with the magenta cartridge of my PIXMA MP510.


Dirty or faulty contacts in the cartridge chamber is the only logical explanation.
Remove the cart and with a cotton wool bud and a little alcohol or similar[NOT ACTETONE it melts plastic] give a gentle clean.

Dell 942 AIO printer cartridge problem


Was your replacement cartridge a new dell product? If it was, the sensor on the prnter should recognize it as new and reset the indicator to full. If, however, the cartridge was refilled, remanufactured, or otherwise an off brand, the ink indicator will show it to be empty. Just ignore and use the printer as normal -- it will print just fine, but you may need to press the select button to get it to start printing the first page.
