Defective brand new cartridge or defective printer
Hello there guys,
I'm wondering if you can help me with this.After having used without any problems about 1000 pages out of a starter toner , I bought a brand new original samsung toner cartridge for my Samsung SCX-4200 but as soon as I placed the cartidge into the printer there were immediately very loud cracking noises and output of blackened pages with vertical lines.Thinking that my printer might be defective,I bought another SCX-4200 all-in-one just to verify and when I used the same toner cartridge,exactly the same thing occured so I returned the printer.Is it possible that I might have a defective toner cartridge even though it is an original samsung toner cartridge or is the printer somehow suddenly defective after outputing about 1000 pages out of a starter toner without any problems.One thing to notice though is that, I was still using the printer for a while,when it was indicating that it was out of the initial starter toner and same very loud cracking noises occured when the starter toner was finally out of juice.

You may have a defective Epson cartridge
(internal ink level monitoring circuit) - Epson uses a piezo-electric sensor (in all their cartridges) that is subject to this type of failure...the cartridge may need to be replaced.
However, if after replacing the T0753 cartridge with brand new Epson Original ink
cartridge, does NOT correct the problem, then you may have a defective PRINTHEAD in the printer (i.e. permanent electrical sub-assembly which the cartridges plug into).
on North American ink refill services at a major retailer near you (should you
wish to save ~50% on ink costs), general printing problem/troubleshooting resolutions or advanced printer diagnosis procedures (advanced cartridge diagnostic tests/cartridge error
bypass & printer reset methods, etc.), please visit Inkjet411: http://www.inkjet411.com
HP printers will not accept refilled cartridges. Are you trying to replace your empty cartridges with refilled cartridges? There is a computer chip in the ink cartridge that tells the printer when it is out of ink. If you try and refill it yourself, the printer will not recognize that it has been refilled without replacing the computer chip in it.
I think your printer is telling you that it needs HP brand cartridges that are original and not refilled cartridges. There is no way to "reset" an hp printer to get it to use an off brand or refilled cartridge that has not had the chip changed.
You can pick up a good refilled cartridge at a professional company who knows about changing the chip for less then a third of the regular price of an HP cartridge in a department store. However, HP does not want you to use refilled cartridges and should something go wrong with your computer and they find out that you were using them they will void your warranty on your printer.
If you are not trying to replace HP brand cartridges with refilled or off brand versions, I suggest your return them to where you bought them and exchange them. They may be defective cartridges.
The chances are that the chip on the cartridge is defective. Have you tried another cartridge? If you can, take the defective cartridge back to the vendor and get a replacement or refund. If it worked once, it is likely the cartridge and not the printer.
Hello. It seems that you have a mechanical/hardware problem in the
printer itself. Remove the cartridges from the printer. Unplug the
printer from the power source. Plug it back to the power source after
10-15 seconds. When the printer's ready, insert the cartridges and make
sure the cartridges are properly seated and locked in the carrier. Make
sure there's no foreign objects blocking the carrier. Close the cover.
Let it print the alignment page all the way through without cancelling
it. If it still makes the banging/knocking sound, I would advise you to
call Lexmark. That is a sound of a defective printer already. Good luck!
The chances are you have a defective cyan ink cartridge. If you are using an aftermarket/reloaded cartridge and the cartridge chip is defective. First try a new cartridge. The best bet is a new OEM cartridge, run the deep cleaning utility 3 times. The nozzle may be clogged and this will clean the nozzle.
Aftermarket/reloaded cartridges ink do not always meet the specifications for the printers that use the finer inks.
Let me know if this works for you. Thanks.
Is it a dell cartridge or a different brand altogether?
If it is a dell brand it could be defective. There is a chip that determines if it is the correct brand and sometimes that breaks.
If you have already changed the cartridge to a brand new dell brand one and it is still happening, then I would suspect the sensor is bad. Probably cheaper to replace the entire printer than to send it in for warranty replacement if it still has warranty.
There is a very good chance that your brand new cartridge is defective. If you have another cartridge put that in and see what happens. If the second cartridge works and the first didn't then it is for sure a defective cartridge.
There is nothing on Brother's website referring to this situation, so I would bet that it is a defective cartridge.
that is most proberly a defective cartridge packermary you need to try another cartridge if it works then return the defective cartridge or else try cleaning the head on the cartridge by using alcohol or spirits and wiping the pins on the cartridge head & the coper part of the cartridge.
