Refilled 940 Cartridege At Costco


Everyone listen!!!



The HP 940 style cartridges have an inherent design issue that they collect air inside the black rubber pump. When enough air gets inside the black rubber cartridge pump they get soft/spongy - they must be firm (try pressing on it). The printer presses on the cartridge pump with a foot (gray plastic pad back inside the cartridge compartment) when it wants more ink to the printhead. If it presses and doesn\'t feel enough electrical resistance it thinks the cartridge is empty and errors "empty".

When a cartridge is truly empty, the black rubber pump will **** up inside itself, thus the foot does not feel any resistance. The only way to fix this is by occasionally remove the excess air from the cartridge pump. We recommend the AdaptiveInk Cartridge and Printhead Re-priming Kit. Yes, the Printheads also have an inherent design issue where they collect the air that is pushed from the cartridges. Excess air inside the printhead is what causes the majority of print quality issues you have when printing and this kit resolves this issue very well.

Printer not recognizing new cartridge


There are no electronics on these type of cartridges, there is a switch on the inside of the printer that detects if a cartridge in in place or not.
Take the cartridge out, unplug the printer for 5 mins and switch back on, replace the cartridge. If it is not a brother OEM cartridge then it is possible that is is not sitting inside its holder correctly, and not tripping the switch.
Hope this helps

A white streak appears on the right hand side of the print out


Hi,
If faded prints happen even after replacing the toner cartridge or if your current cartridge has enough toner, it is most likely be due to dust at the laser reflecting mirrors inside the printer.

I have worked/ serviced similar Laserjet Printer with same issue.
Actually, faded prints are due the the dust/ toner dust accumulated on the optics (mirrors and lenses) inside the printer, which refect the laser beams to form prints. Hence the image is not produced properly. This needs professional hands for servicing and cleaning of the optics inside the printer.
Rest assure that the printer requires ONLY CLEANING OF THE MIRRORS, which are inside the printer. So, it is advised that you get the printer serviced by any printer repair/ service professional. (Please note that the mirrors, lenses and scanner assembly inside such printers is extremely complex and can get damaged very easily especially the mirrors).

Hope it would help. If you need any clarification, let me know
Good Luck!

Our printer is not picking up the paper from the tray and is saying it is jammed. There is not jam.


Hi there !

Is your printer had jammed before and it stop printing in the middle of printing? For some reasons, paper can jammed due to printing interruptions, printer turn off, improper loading or feeding of paper, roller feeder had problem and others.

If jams before and paper have let inside the printer, please do the following first:

1. Check th paper tray, see inside if the paper is jammed inside that compartment. If there is paper jammed, remove, turn off your printer and turn on. This will solve your problem.

2. If not, open the printer cartridge door, remove the toner cartridge and look for paper jammed inside. If these is paper inside, remove it, turn off the printer and turn it on.

3. If you cannot see the paper jammed inside, the paper maybe inside the heating area. To remove paper, just turn off your printer and turn it on to roll over the paper jammed inside of it.

4. If the printer is blinking and saying there is paper jammed. You have to check the cartridge toner by opening the cartridge door, remove the cartridge and return it back but be sure it is well firmly fitted.

If following the 4 diagnostic procedure and you cannot locate the jammed paper, the problem lies on the toner cartridge itself. When toner cartridge is not rolling over, it will stop feeding the paper and it will cause printer to jammed.

To diagnose the problem, put old printer cartridge and if no toner power, just shake it well and I am sure there is still small amount of powder inside it and if it prints, the toner cartridge you purchase is defective. Reason, factory defect or improper refilling and part is not working well.

I hope it is helpful and thank you for using FixYa !

Getting a black stripe on the right side of print


Black stripe is the main problem of damage roller drum inside the toner cartridge or damage fuser film drum inside the printer. Check first the roller drum of toner cartridge if both sides of the roller is tear off. That would be the problem. If not the fuser film inside printer is damage. This is dammage due to continues bulky printing.

But if your refilling the toner cartridge, you need to clean the waste bin compartment of the toner cartridge maybe it is full and waste are overflowing on it making black stripes on your printer and will damage both printer and cartridge.

Those cartridges have electronics inside to tell the printer when they are empty, there's no guage inside the cartridge. Online you might find ways to reset your cartridge, but the best is to buy a new cartridge.

turn off your printer. Press and hold down the left arrow and the transfer button, turn on printer while holding them down, you should hear your printer make some noises, This will be the head lining up. Open the side door to gain access to the cartridge, push on it to see that it i s"locked" in. Lift up on the Green release button on the inside and your cartridge should come free on its own.

C3150 print cartridge


  • Remove the cartridges.
  • Turn off the printer.
  • If the cartridges are leaking, put the print head on some tissue, so it can extract the excess ink. With a dry cloth, clean your scanner. Look inside the printer. If there is ink in there too, clean it. Use a lot of tissue or toilet paper. Might put some gloves on too.
  • When you make sure that the cartridges are not leaking anymore, gently wipe the electric contacts on them, and clean the ones on the cartridge carrier.
  • Turn the printer on.
  • Try printing.
  • If the cartridge light keeps flashing:
  1. If a computer message indicates a specific cartridge, that is the problem cartridge.
  2. If there is no computer message, look at the Start Copy lights - if the Black Start Copy light is blinking, the cartridge on the right is the problem cartridge.
  3. If the Color Start Copy light is blinking, the cartridge on the left is the problem cartridge.
If you find out which cartridge is the problem, you will need to replace it.
Unfortunately, the ink that has leaked inside, might have damaged your printer.

Check black cartridge message


This happens if you refilled the cartridges, and forgot to take out the air..

Follow this steps..
1. Switch on the printer, open cartridge bay, remove cartridge, dont close the cartridge holder flaps, directly unplug the power supply from the printer end.

2. take a soft cotton, lint free cloth, slightly swab it with pure water, wring the cloth so any excess water is removed, and clean the contact pins inside the printer cartridge holder..

3. clean the cartridge head by keeping it in hot water (about 50C) and then wiping it clean, keep it upright for a few min, and when both printer and cartridge is completly dry put it back in, voila it should not display the message now...
