Read on and see if any applies to you.
Check that you removed the protective tape. some cartridges have two of these pieces of tape one over the head and possibly on on the contacts to the printer.

If you recently re-filled or had the cartridge refilled or even bought one of the many cheaper replacement cartridges you should read on

Most modern cartridges have an ink level chip built on to them.
Should the level drop below 25% then most of these chips lock up and will not reset.

Re-filling them will have no effect

If you are lucky you should be able to find either a
chip resetter
around on the INTERNET or maybe even local

OR

Even better empty cartridges that
never need to be reset.
The second option is my preference

I realise these are not for your specific printer but there are others listed on both those sites as well.

cheaper cartridge problems have been on the rise recently and that is for ALL makes of printer.
If you try to clean the contacts be VERY careful cleaning contacts and ONLY use isopropynol on a lint free bud or cloth.
Also be very gentle.

I have seen the contacts cleaned and cartridges ruined with other methods of cleaning.
Rubbing too hard can also cause a badly set chip to move making it inoprable.

I dont like full prices replacements either which is why I always provide the links
I usually reccomend that people take back any cartridge that does not work right from the get-go.

I dont know of anyone who has had a problem doing that be it a shop refill or otherwise.

No matter if I paid $1 or $100 for a cartrdige I would still expect it to work
Hope this gives you the information you need

My printer keeps saying that the black ink is missing. Why?


Make sure your black cartridge is not very low on ink or empty. Otherwise, replace it with new genuine cartridges.
It could be a communication problem between your black cartridge and your printer. Try to re-seat the black cartridge into the printer.
It could also be a short in your black cartridge. Try to insert a different known working black cartridge. Better yet, replace it with a new genuine Lexmark cartridge.
If the problem continues, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

I've tryed the reset button. It does not recognize the black cartridge. I own two 1320c printers and all four new black cartridges work in the other printer.

Open the printer and remove the ink. Clean around the ink carriage and the under the ink with alcohol and a cotton swab. Pay special attention to areas with copper contacts. Keep in mind too that some printers will not print, even with full ink, if the exact type of ink it expected you to have installed is not right. Double check that the ink is correct against the manual or written instructions inside the printer using the number not the shape or color of the cartridge. Not every cartridge that fits the printer necessarily works.

Brand New Printer


Hi Teetle, No, it not normal to only get two pages per cartridge. I would try the following before contacting Epson tech support: -Remove the cartridges and clean the contacts on both the printer and cartridge. -Reinsert each cartridge making sure it is seated correctly. -Buy one black cartridge and install. It is possible that the cartridge is defective but since the magenta cartridge is showing low its unlikely. Tech support will want you to try it before they will replace the printer so you?re best off trying it now. If after trying this steps there is no change and if you?ve had it for less than 7 days I would talk to your retail store. Usually they will just trade your defective unit for one in stock. If you have had it longer contact Epson support and explain what it happening and what you?ve done. Make sure you mention you?ve bought a new Epson black cartridge with no change. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this post.
