I replaced my tri colour cartridge on hp2540 and keep getting message i need to buy hp cartridge how do i get it to print

1) If you replaced it with a refilled cartridge you may need the "latest" version of the cartridge in order to print with refills. See this link for more information: Updated HP 61 301 122 and 802 Ink Cartridges

If this cartridge is from their monthly print program you will not be able to refill it and taking it out and replacing it in the same printer can also through an error code.

2) Have you tried turning off the printer, unplugging it "FROM THE WALL" for three minutes and replugging it back in and turning it back on?

3) If one or the other cartridges have electronic problems, it will not print.

4)If an update was done on your printer software? Sometimes this will not allow you to use anything but HP. However, sometimes if you use an genuine HP and then go back to the refill it will reset it and work again.

Hope this helps you to understand this printer cartridge.

I replaced all of the cartridges with Epson, but the black won't print. After some nozzle checks, black is getting low and STILL no black printing occurring... what going on? Now the other colors are...

Nozzle cleaning uses a lot of ink, that's probably why the other ink cartridges are registering low on ink. Are you using refilled cartridges or brand new? Also, have you had the cartridges for awhile? I've found that the nozzles can become clogged either from not using the printer for awhile or because it's a recycled cartridge that didn't have the nozzles cleaned before it was refilled. When that happens, unfortunately, sometimes it takes a lot of cleaning cycles before the printing comes back. Let me know more about the cartridges you have.

Black ink isnt working. I have replaced the cartrage and cleaned the heads on several occasions but still no joy.

Try cleaning the contact pin inside the cartridge, there are contact pins that make electrical contact with the cartridge. Also clean the copper foil tracing on the cartridge itselt, if still not printing try a new cartridge, If this is a refill cartridge or off brand sometimes they do not work as most printes have low level software to detect original print cartridges.

Printer ink cartridges contain ink but printer says not!

The chip on the cartridge tells the printer how much ink is left in the cartridge. If the chip says the cartridge is empty, it won't print no matter how much ink is left. That said I think you got refills that didn't get the chips reset or compatibles (non-Epson brand cartridge body) with poorly made chips that expired before they should have. You need to have all the cartridges installed with functioning chips to use your printer. You need to buy new cartridges of the ones your printer thinks are empty. I recommend Cartridge World for refills because they make a quality product that doesn't have these kind of "novice" refiller problems. I would never buy refills or compatibles off the internet because you get what you pay for.

I have an Epson color printer ,but not the same model. If any of the colors of ink or out it will not allow one to print anything until the cartrage is replaced. It is built that way to stop the ink for totally running out . I just read this in this months comsumers reports magizine. Sorry.
