Question about Computer Speakers

1 Answer

Printer stopped I bought a Canon Pixma 1800. After I used up the ink that goes with it, I had the cartridge refilled with a replacement ink, and it worked fine for a day. Then I wanted to print again and I got the message that the black cartridge is out of ink but I just had it refilled with replacement ink. Now I cannot print coz all I get is that message with just one option - cancel printing. Tried going to the printer's option folder but I can't disable the monitoring. What will I do? Thanks!

Re: Printer stopped

Hello simply jane
Happy Holidays
Well, this is a problem with contacts on back of your ink cartridge, you have to take out the ink cartridge and clean the back panel of the board on cartridge , then the panel on printer,
another way to disable printer monitoring program is going to MSCONFIG , and on startup programs looking for the monitoring program there and disable.
good luck

How to connect lexmark all in one x3550 printer to a gateway zx6971 desktop

Hi, you need to have the cable that goes from the back of the printer into a usb socket on your pc. You should have got two cables with the printer the power cable to supply the printer and another cable that also goes into the printer and the other end usb goes into a slot in your pc that's how it transfers info printer to pc. You should have got an installation printer disk that you have to install into your pc so that you can pull the printer up on your pc and they both recognize each other.

HP 932 933 950 951 Refilled Ink Cartridge Usage

If using refilled HP 950, 950XL, HP 951 or HP 951XL ink cartridges you observe an "Unauthorized ink", "non-genuine ink cartridge may affect warranty", "counterfeit ink" or similar message, you can simply ignore/dismiss these messages by pressing 'OK' once for each cartridge, so that the printer resumes its normal operation. Customers who have questions regarding the use of refilled ink cartridges can visit Alternatively, if a refill center is not close to you and you need to purchase a new ink cartridge(s) and are trying to cut costs, we suggest you try a remanufactured ink cartridge from as their ink cartridges typically have the lowest cost in the USA, have a high reliability rating, come with a 1-year warranty and provide free shipping for all orders above $20 (available for US Residents only).

7.Check the 4th line at the top of the printed report; an electrically good/stable PRINTHEAD will state "Pen Status: Pen OK".........if any other message is displayed then the PRINTHEAD may have failed and may need to be replaced.

8.Press right arrow:
a.16 times to 'print head rec level 1' (basic recovery)
b.17 times to 'print head rec level 2' (medium recovery)
c.18 times to 'print head rec level 3' (thorough recovery)....suggested for severe streaking

Semi full reset (can be used to help address intermittent or incorrect printer behavior issues)
1.Press return arrow 4 times
2.Press support menu
3.Press right hand arrow 2 times to Resets menu and press ok
4.Press right hand arrow 2 times to semi full reset and press ok (Note: this will return printer to factory default condition; regional setup will be required following this action)

* Failure of the PRINTHEAD has nothing to do with refilled ink cartridges; the PRINTHEAD assembly is a separate electronic unit in which the cartridges plug into and feed ink into. Refer to NOTE below.

4) To rule out printer/cartridge connectivity (assembly interface/connection) issues please ensure you have followed all steps on HP's support page - this includes PRINTHEAD removal and thorough cleaning of the electrical surfaces on the PRINTHEAD and on the CARRIAGE ASSEMBLY:

Am receiving message that reads, "There is a problem with printer or ink system?"

Have you replaced the ink cartridge? If not it may be empty. Also if you moved printer it could have shaken loose. There is a host fixes, but most common is empty cartridge. If you installed a new cart, an did not seat it correctly it can error on you.

How do I fix the Vertical black line on an HP 8600 Office Jet

Is this unit plugged into a direct wall outlet? If not, then try plugging the unit into a direct wall outlet.

The Officejet Pro 8600 has a built in surge protector and doubling this feature up can cause some issues.

As well, try hard resetting the printer:
* Unplug unit while the printer is turned on
* Unplug the other end of the power cable from the direct wall outlet
* Wait 30 seconds
* Plug unit back up

Let me know if this helps.

-- some people report having to wait 5 minutes with the unit unplugged --

Printer will not print. a new ink cartridge was

There could be several solutions to your problem. You could start with the easier solutions.

You can try to turning your printer off then on.

If the printer cartridge is a new HP cartridge, try taking it out and put it back on and see if this works. try it a few times. Make sure that you take the protective cartridge printer film off.

If not, try rebooting your computer.

If not, try deleting the printer's software, rebooting your computer and reinstall the printer's software if you have the CD install disk.

You can always try to disconnect your printer from your computer, connect it again and see if it works.

You can try to use a combination of the solutions mentioned above.

If none of this solutions work, contact me.

Document copied in black & white prints

Check Printer Settings in computer for Resolution. if its print resolution is low then it will print very light gray.

Check Toner / Ink Cartridges for ink also.

To check resolution go to printer Properties by right clicking printer (from Control Panel>> Printer and Faxes) .
