Our printer is telling us that the cyan is out, when we pulled it out, the cartridge was still half of ink, we went and bought another one replaced it and it still wont let us print. saying it still empty.

What is a solution that we can clean the head with, as we realise it's not the cartridge so there has to be a block? CORRECT

Installed 91 type ink into EPSON CX5500 printer. As stated in other forums the printer driver/hardware does not recognise the ink? It was purchased fm www.epson.com.au. How can I make this work?


Hi,

I believe you already have tried reinstalling the ink cartridge? If not, do it and see if it helped. If it still doesn't work, then it means that the chip of the cartridge is bad. Have it replaced.

How to reset 73/91 Cartridges for Epson CX5500


SSC utility is used for resetting waste ink counter, not for ink level counter (chip at ink tank). If you wish to reset ink level counter (chip), you must use hardware resetter, or use CISS chip with autoreset function.

Printer does not recognise new (genuine) cartridge, and keeps telling me to change empty cartridge which is new and full!


hi
Before trying anything else, I'd recommend that you turn off the printer and unplug it from the electric outlet. Wait about 30 seconds and then plug it back in. This should reset the printer.

If that doesn't work, you may need to clean the area of your printer that connects with the yellow ink cartridge. Some detailed instructions can be found here:

Lastly, if nothing else is working, you could have a defective ink cartridge there. In which case I'd suggest returning the cartridge. regards

CX5500 Doesnt Print.


most likely your print head is clogged up.
could be from the following:

generic ink
not using the printer a long time
or
when the printer says the inks are low, a big print job is done and some air is now getting sucked into the printhead.

also possible the tubes going to the wastepad are clogged up.

you will need to take the unit to a service center for repair, approx. repair if no printhead is needed about $65.

Brpther DCP 330c does not recognise new black ink cartridge


Usually there is more than one cartridge empty when you receive this kind of problem. Try opening the top cover and check if the display changes - it should change to specify one (or more) of the color cartridges as empty. That one(s) should be changed too.

Ink in hp photosmart 3310


Hi,
the printer should have software installed enabling you to opt, for a printer-ink cartridge change.
If the cartridge has a chip fitted, it may be discharged.
The chip is supposed to be charged up, for the printer to recognise the newly installed cartridge.
view your settings in control panel/printer/properties to see what options you have available.

Mike @ Compurepair.

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.
