Read on and see if any applies to you.
Check that you removed the protective tape. some cartridges have two of these pieces of tape one over the head and possibly on on the contacts to the printer.

If you recently re-filled or had the cartridge refilled or even bought one of the many cheaper replacement cartridges you should read on

Most modern cartridges have an ink level chip built on to them.
Should the level drop below 25% then most of these chips lock up and will not reset.

Re-filling them will have no effect

If you are lucky you should be able to find either a
chip resetter
around on the INTERNET or maybe even local

OR

Even better empty cartridges that
never need to be reset.
The second option is my preference

I realise these are not for your specific printer but there are others listed on both those sites as well.

cheaper cartridge problems have been on the rise recently and that is for ALL makes of printer.
If you try to clean the contacts be VERY careful cleaning contacts and ONLY use isopropynol on a lint free bud or cloth.
Also be very gentle.

I have seen the contacts cleaned and cartridges ruined with other methods of cleaning.
Rubbing too hard can also cause a badly set chip to move making it inoprable.

I dont like full prices replacements either which is why I always provide the links
I usually reccomend that people take back any cartridge that does not work right from the get-go.

I dont know of anyone who has had a problem doing that be it a shop refill or otherwise.

No matter if I paid $1 or $100 for a cartrdige I would still expect it to work

Black Cartrige Missing


Did you use a brandname ink cartridge - or is it a knock-off brand? If it is a brand name - then the cartridge is most likely defective. If it is a knock-off brand - some printers do not recognize the electronic in the cartridge and therefore don't see it as one being installed.

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.

How to troubleshoot printer


Printer icon still in ur computer,u tried to print a page,printer beeps or shaking of gears about to print,but never did?Yes.How long is the inks cartridge or cartridges been in ur printer?Like a year?Yes.Doesn't matter how many pages u printed even only few pages,the the inks cartridges is dead,it out dated and the cartriges it dry up.Requiring new inks cartridges.Pinters manufactures all of them make their money not on the printers hardwares,it so cheap alot of printers like they giving it away,but the inks cartridges themself cost u like $40 to $50 bucks for a pair of inks cartriges and the expiration date only a year.That if only u printed like 40 pages or less or those cartriges will run out inks before the expiration date.

Ink cartrige cannot be recognised


make sure you've taken the protective tape off the cartrige. Usually its orange and noticeable.

Sometimes generic cartriges have a small chip and a registration that allows the printer to talk between the cartrige from what I under stand maybe ink levels and to protect profits on not allowing generic companies to make a more economical product competitively

the printer can sometimes be power cycled to allow it to accept the generic cartrige.
there are normally settings on a printer to see if you can change the internal settings can be altered to allow non Original Electronic Manufacturors products in a Canon Printer.

make sure that the type of printer you have is compatible with the printer. the computer may require a black cartridge or a color cartrige in a very specific location. they might not be allowed to be switched.
make sure the cartrige can slide in and out of it's slot comfortably.

FOR office printers. there are also protective tabs holding the ink in the cartrige. this side tab on the cartrige is there for shipping. these are normally on large 30 pound printers. top front loading Office printers. the tab needs to be turned hard and swift either clockwise or counter clockwise if you can't cleaning pull it out. Also remember your boss paid a lot for that cartrige dont break something your not comfortable breaking. be warned in advance this dry ink will spill and is hard to clean and harder to clean from clothing.



as per a fast solution a smaller printer and certainly a cartrige can actually be brought into a computer and electronics store whilst looking to buy a new print cartrige. Make sure if you do bring a piece of your own electronics into a store you check in with security. let them know its yours; wave it in front of a camera if youd like.
the seller normally should be able to recognize if their product will fit in your device it will save both of you time and inconvience.
cartriges cost about the same as a new printer with new ink.
dont be afriad to buy an extra ink at the time of purchase and risk letting it dry but having the back up that you know works-
you'll have a package for the next time you need a new cartidge. gives you more research material.
accept moores law
feel good about flossing on a new printer.
print some pictures and frame them-
pictures are some of the most important thing in our lives! Smile!

Computer says no ink in color cartriges,but there is ink in them


Probably just a miscalculation and/or an incredible use of the ink during cleaning. Either way you will need ink. Do not take these estimates literally as they are only estimates. You could try setting your default print quality lower to 'draft' and override for printing photos to save ink.
