Re: Print cartridge error

Press either the menu or setup button.
There should be a maintenance section where you can do eletronic print cartridge cleaning and print head alignments and calabrations.
Some of them can be done at the computer if you access the driver properties.
You can clich the print queue and look around there also for print head cleaning and some other diagnostic procedures.
If those don't resolve the problem, remove the cartridge and take a fuzzless cloth dampened very slightly with alcohol and clean the contacts to the print cartridge.
PLEASE REMOVE THE POWER when cleaning though.

Sounds like your print head may be faulty. If you can, get it replaced. This is caused by using recycled cartidges or faulty ink cartridge.

Epson printer will not print any copies. I get the message "change cartridges 98/99." I did change both cartidges and can't clear the message and print copies.

i assume that everytime you try to print you get the same message. i sometimes get cartridge unrecognised on my epsom. I have to remove the cartridge, wipe the chip on the cartridge and reinsert.

If this doesnt work please specify printer model and if using original epsom cartridges.

I have a hp psc 2410 .the black is printing beautifully but the colour it printing doubled or blurry. changed colour cartridge and still the same. help please

Your inkjet nozzles may be clogged with old dried ink. Try removing your color cartridge and looking at the area on your print carraige where the inkjet cartridge mates up with the carriage. Use a Q-tip and warm distilled water to gently swab this area until all the old ink is dissolved and it wipes clean. You may need several Q-tips for this. Allow to air dry and reintall your print cartidge. Your printer should go into an automatic cleaning cycle. You may also need to gently clean the area on the cartidge itself using the Q-tip method. Good luck.

Clean the heads, printer is not reading new cartridge or refilled cartridge. You may also have a paper jam if alignment is affected. Check for little jams, post back if no go lilacgerry xxx

Replace color cartridge

Access your printer properties and try preforming a print head or printer cartidge clean and on the machine try the print cartridge aligniment procedure.
If after you try both of those I suspect there is an issue with the print head.
If that is the case an ink jet printer is not worth repairing.

Lexmark x1180 printer all in one

Clean the contacts on the cartidge and printer ( open the replace ink door wait for the printhead to come to center and turn off power) if that does not work then replace cartridge, it might be a recycled one that they did not chane the chip.
