SOURCE: have just bought new ink for the printer and now

I have had the same problem. The ink cartridge gauges ARE NOT reliable. they might tell you you're full, but there are either empty or all coaegged. Solution? heads and nozzle clean-up. Might take a while (like up to 50 clean ups in my experience.

Clean clean and re clean again.

Hi, i am sorry you are going through this. Shake the ink properly before inserting it and make sure you are using the right ink, more so, the inks you bought "might" be outdated. Which could cause the printer not to recognize the ink..... Here mail me directly if you are still having this issue and i will tell you steps to follow if need be replacing the Ink Head.

If you've only bought it 2 months ago it will still be under warranty.

My printer keeps saying left cartridge incorrect. I know how to put the cartridges in, I've had this printer for 4 years.

The connector for that cartridge isn't working properly - if you're lucky all you will need is a new cartridge; if you're unlucky a new All-in-one.

New ink cartridges fitted, cleaned nozzles but colour still isn't working properly.

Check to see if that kind of cart has a date chip built in to it. HP does that, and I have come across new, out of the box, color cartridges for my 2250 Business Ink Jet, which would not work at all, because their date had expired. Nothing I could do to make them work, but HP was kind enough to trade them for carts that had longer dates, since they realized that I had bought these things and didn't have such a heavy print load that I would use them up before they expired.
Give it a look and see. The date may be on the box, or on the cart itself.

CX 3900 Ink Problem

Normal 0 Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Please advice why my epson picturemate 500 is not printing photos properly?

Take the ink-cartridge out, shake it only very lightly and put it back in the printer. Turn it on and go to the options section and run the printhead cleaner option and alignment, this might make it work properly. Good Luck

I bought two new ink cartridges. i can't get them to work.

Replace the cartridges. Sometimes the NEW printer cartridges doesn't work. If you go to the store they will replace them.

Another tip is:

Put boiling water in a cup
Put the end printer cartridge (ink) close to the water to receive the steam during a couple of minutes. (Do not put into the water)

Put it back into the printer and try again.

Colored Ink problem

Make sure the printer settings are set properly to print in color on the PC. Even if there is a color cartridge, if the PC only tells it to print black ink it's not going to use the color cartridge.
