Did you lock and secure the latches?

If yes and still this message, do you run generic ink carts?

If yes, the cart holder is stained with ink and the led-controll-board has a short circuit, which cant be fixed!

You need a new cart holder as a spare part!

Iv changed my ink cartridge and now it wont print it keeps saying ink cartridge has been changed

I just got mine working again. Solution: You have to disassemble your Printer. Take a close look at the small round motor inside. Their is a small toothed wheel attached to the shaft of the motor - mine was already lying inside the printer. This wheel hast to be replaced by a tighter fitting one or the original one has to be fixed to the shaft - I used glue, as i had no new wheel.

Alarm message says "cartridge jammed". Does that

What you see moving is the print carriage. The carriage moves the cartridge, adjacent to the printhead, back and forth.
Although the carriage is moving, the ink cartridge can not dispense ink because an obstruction is
blocking the path of the ink.
Remove the ink cartridges, inspect the cartridges as well as the cartridge holders for any foreign debris and reinstall.
If the alarm message continues, I suggest changing the ink cartridges.

Hello ,

Start by opening your ink cover and read the LCD screen; this will alert you as to which ink cartridge is not being recognized; make sure the cartridge that it is telling you is empty has been changed.

If the unit is still not recognizing the cartridge you have changed, follow the steps below.

  1. Unplug the power cord for the printer unit.
  2. Open the ink cartridge cover and remove all ink cartridges.
  3. Close the ink cartridge cover.
  4. Plug the power cord back in.
  5. Reinstall the ink cartridges.

Thank you,

Keep your printer of nozzle checking. Refill Cartridge are most likely showing message "low ink", but it's actually not, i mean running good as new.

Expired ink cartridge

You may be getting this error message due to the printer being able to tell that it is a non-hp cartridge. I don't know how it can tell, but mine says that too. I uninstalled the software and then reinstalled the software. And then I took out the cartridge and put it back in. See if this works for you.

Chances are the new cartridge is defective.
Check the expiration date on the cartridge, and even if it is not expired, I would suspect the cartrigde is bad, dried out, not allowing the ink to lower.
That is the most frequent issue with your problem

Re install ink

I know this is a dumb question but did you remove the tape off he bottom of the ink cartridge? Also sometimes if you are using a generic ink cartridge the machine may not recognize it. Make sure the cartridge is seated in properly and that it is in the correct location. (not color spot). Hope this helps. John
