Printer says cant print until cyan ink is replaced. Have replaced it with 2 different cartridges, but still wont print

You won't be able to print if one of the cartridges is out of ink. The printer will prime every once in a while thus the need for all cartridges to have sufficient ink levels to prevent damaging the printhead.

Hp c6180 states cartridges missing or damaged

OK now this might seem bizarre, but did you go ahead and click the "Black Only" print option?

I have a C6180. Just installed all new cartridges. Tried to print and got the message that Cyan is empty. Tried all sorts of things. Then out of frustration clicked the Black Onl option. Document came out printed in color! Double checked with a picture that has lots of cyan colors. It all printed too! Go figure.

MX310 - faxes in memory. Cartridges have been replaced. Error of low ink remains. What is the key sequence to retrieve these faxes?

Press Fax then Menu. You should see Fax Settings across the top row. Use the left/right arrows to select Memory Reference and press OK. Again use the left/right arrows to select Print Document and press OK. Select the transaction (RX) number of the fax you want to print (received faxes start at 5001) and press OK. Then choose whether you want the first page or the entire fax (yes to first page only or no for the entire fax) and press OK. To print additional faxes repeat from the Select RX number. Print the Memory List to find out which fax is which (from the list that you see under Print Document.

Then you can delete these by selecting Delete Document instead of Print Document in the above directions. Then press OK followed by Yes or No for deleting the document.

Finally press Stop/Reset to leave the menu.

I hope this helps.

I replaced an ink cartridge because the printer stopped working and showed a message that the old cartridge is empty. However after putting the new one in but the printer still refuses to work and shows...

maybe the cartridge is wrong, release it and clean the electrical contacts, put them again one by one, if notting happen, try this
Solution As the printer operates, it moves ink from the ink cartridges into a printhead reservoir. The printer does not deliver a message when an ink cartridge goes empty, because it still has ink in the reservoir. The printer continues printing until the ink level in the reservoir falls to a first trigger point - then a message appears advising the printer owner to Replace Cartridges Soon . At this point, other cartridges that are empty but have not reached the trigger point are also mentioned in the message, to save trips to the retailer. After the first trigger point, the printer can continue printing until ink levels in the reservoir reach a second trigger point. At the second trigger point there is only enough ink left to perform vital servicing tasks, and a new message appears, saying Ink Cartridges Empty . The options offered depend on the usable inks remaining. If no options are offered, the cartridges indicated must be replaced before printing can continue. The Ink Cartridges Empty options are described in the table below: Ink colors out Option Print mode possible All Cancel None Black


Cyan, Magenta, or Yellow (any or all) Black only Continue with other colors Cyan/Magenta/Yellow mode (composite black)

Text and photo quality will differ from those printed when all colors are available Light Cyan or Light Magenta (either or both) Cyan, Magenta, or Yellow (any or all)

(Black still available) Print with black ink only Grayscale

I have a HP 7580 printer/fax/scanner which will not print in black even though i have installed a new black ink cartridge

I had this same problem, replaced all ink cartridges and problem still remained. The fix for this is actually to replace the print heads not the cartridges. There is a black/yellow and Magenta/Cyan print head in the printer itself under the scanner on the right hand side. Rpelace as needed.

MFC-440CN printer. Colors are not proper

I'd like to help if I can. These printers have 4 cartridges. One black, one magenta (reddish), one cyan (blue) and one (yellow). The text and pictures are printed with a combination of these inks. When one or more is low, printing will be as you described. Your situation seems to be that you are out of black (so the cyan is trying to help and can only print blue) and you are probably out of yellow so the magenta is trying to do what it can. If you'll change all of the cartridges, I am pretty sure that you will have your problem solved.

Finally, there is a great place to get cartridges for your printer. The link is:

You can buy a multi-pak consisting of 4 black and 2 each of the three colors for $39.95 plus s/h

I use the cartridges and they have proven to be reliable.

If my help has been satisfactory, please give me your rating.

My brother fax machine is indicating that two color cartridges are almost empty, however i never print anything and color, and basically everything is black. so how can they be almost empty?

Three reasons -

If your print driver is set to color. It will use all the colors to make black.

Because the machine is ink jet it needs to clean the print head to stop it from drying out. It will use color ink to flush the print head every two days.

When ever in receives a fax it will use some color when printing a fax, particularly Cyan.

If you only wish to print or receive faxes in black there is now a version of Brother fax that only uses black ink and has no color inks. However it may not be available in your region. If you try and cheat the system you will only kill your print head.

In Use/Memory FAX after changing ink cartridge

I had the same problem - it would not print the faxes as the machine would not recognize the generic cartridge - I had to get the official Canon cartridge to get the faxes to print out of memory.
