When machine says ink is out and it really is not...put a blank label over the spine (thinest part of the cartridge). This will rick the machine and allow you to continue printing.....

One of your colour cartridges will be empty. Check them and replace if empty. Turn the machine off then on and it should display which one it is. Its bug in the machines software when two cartridges run out at the same time and only fisrt one displays as out, then the second reads as no cartridge because it is that empty.

Not printing red or pink

Hi patti,
Did you check the black ink cartrdige ???? To get red, their needs to be black ink involved which will darken the pink and give you red.

Also, make sure the nozzles are clean on the printer's print head. Take a Q-tip and alcohol and clean the printhead on the printer itself. Remove the cartrdige first. Clen the underside of the cartrdige as well.

Don't worry, alcohol won't harm the printheads because it dries instantly.
Hope It's resolve all Your Printer Problem,

How do i replace cartridge

On the right hand side of your machine-FRONT-right there is a panel that should have come with a sticker on it, you may have taken the sticker off so anyway, it is the ONLY panel on the front right side it just pulls down, put your finger on the rigth side of the machine yhou will feel a little indent and then pull it down, and there are your four ink cartridges. Each cartridge must be replaced individually and on the bottom of the panel you pulled down it will be labeled (B for Black, Y for Yellow, C for Cyan and M for Magenta, and each print cartrdige should also be colored to make it easier as well). Anyhow, you pull the little plastic purple tab that is covering each ink cartridge (in the machine) forward towards you and it should release the cartridge for you to pull out and dispose of) every now and then I have a little trouble and need to use something to help me get started pulling a cartridge forward-just like the tip of a pen or something but you should have no problem with this, and then you put the new cartridge in-the way it says-there should be an arrow on it showing you which way to put it in (also look as you pull the old one out) and as you push the new one in, the plastic tab will click shut and you will hear a "'spray sound". When you are done, close the cover and the machine will first do a "cleaning" before it is ready to be used again. Here is a tip for you as well, this machine WILL NOT WORK if you have any empty ink cartridges, they ALL must have some ink in them for you to print anything, even if you just want to use black, you have to color cartridges as well, I try to use every last bit of color before replacing a cartrdige, I wait until IT MAKES ME REPLACE IT by saying "empty black cartrdige" before I replace it "near empty" is NOT ENOUGH to replace it, mine has been saying "near empty magenta" for weeks now and it still works fine, it just wants me to replace with a new one and waste more money as this ink IS VERY EXPENSIVE, it cost me over $75 to replace all four ink cartridges, the best deal is to get the combo pack with all the colors, or the one with the three colors and then the double black pack. some colors will obviously get used quicker than other colors, so like I said, I have been waiting to replace that "near empty magenta" UNTIL I HAVE TO, as it hs been telling me to do so for weeks now, and I have a replacment in the drawer but once I replace it, it is like throwing money in the garbage since the one that is near empty, is FINE sitting in there while I PRINT OUT BLACK AND WHITE COPIES most of the time anyway, it just won't let you print if ANY of the cartrdiges are ACTUALLY EMPTY, even if you are not using that color, you still cannot have an empty cartrdige or NO cartridge in the machine, it just WIL NOT WORK. GOOD LUCK.

Not recognize ink cartrdige Canon 6700D

Best thing to do is just replace the the indicated ink cartridge. Reason being is that even though the cartridge still has ink in it, it is the metal contacts on the cartridge that have to communicate with the printers on-board memory. If the contacts on the cartridge are fouled and are not communicating with the printer, the cartridge is telling the printer that "I am empty and I need to be replaced", even if it is full of ink. This would apply to all six cartridges.

I have a Canon printer/scanner MP210. I ran out of black ink, though at the time, the color ink was working perfectly. I replaced the black ink cartridge and the printer now prints in black perfectly. ...

First try a hard reset - Unplug printer from power supply, wait 2 minutes and replug and see. If that doesnt work, try uninstalling and reinstalling the printer driver and software. Also ensure that the cartridge is properly seated in the holder.

FIrst make sure you are using a #15 HP cartridge, the #45 looks similar but will not work in the PSC 750. If the cartrdige is a #15 try cleaning the contacts as shown here.

If this does not resolve the issue check the warranty information. If the cartridge is an original HP (not a reman or refill) see the following for warranty information and if the cartridge is still in its two year warranty period return it to your dealer for a replacement.

If the cartrdige is a #15 reman you might find the following enlightening. In this case you will need to contact your dealer for a replacment.

Printer Toolbox Not Recognizing New Black Ink

The Deskjet 6940 will only show ink level for original HP cartrdgies. Refilled or reman cartridges will show as empty or unknown in the toolbox. This is not an issue with the driver, the cartrdige itself has information that it has been previously used and this is not resettable. You can continue to print with a cartrdige that has unknown ink levels, you will just not get low ink warnings.
