Make sure you are using the correct cartridges for your model. Try to remove both the cartridges. Close the cover. Unplug and replug the printer into the power outlet to reset itself. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges when prompted. Close the cover and check for any error. If none, try to print again.

Error message on HP 2800 business inkjet, message reads 1% ink left on brand new cartridge


View the user manual here.

go to page 60 and follow the instructions for replacing the ink cartridge, remember to have the printer on when you do.

Then go to page 62 and allign the print head automaticly following the instructions it gives.

This will re-callibrate the ink level on the printer and should read correctly for you.

After putting a new black and white ink cartridge into the printer, it keeps printing the alighnment sheet everytime I turn the printer on. Ugh! What a waste of ink.

actually it is given in that allign page printout that how to stop this.
but listen the procedure.
after the allignment page is printed just place that allignment page in the scanner .the readable side of the page on the glass.then press OK/ENTER what button present in your printer.
the allignment will start.the printer will read the page.and allignment will get completed.then after u ON the printer it will not give you such problem till u replace the cartridges.

Printer wont load paper

To align the color cartridge, simply try taking the cartridge out, and putting it back ini. Most often on Lexmark printers, this will bring up a message asking if your cartridges are new or old and of what number they are. after this menu you will likely be forwarded to a printing alignment page
