Recheck that the ink is correctly inserted & protective tap has been removed. ( may sound lame but it is the most common problem). It would not be uncommon for the new cartridge right out of the box is also defective. Return & replace.

Epson stylus rx 425, just cahnged catridges and printer wont recognise this, catridge red light permanently on. help! printer wont recognise cartridge


Try to left up your new cartridge, and reinstall it. chances are your installation of the cartridge is just loosened. If your printer still won't recognise your print cartridge, there might be a problem with your printer motherboard in recognising your cartridge.

I have a Canon PIXMA MP530 all in on copier/printer. I inadvertently inserted a magenta ink cartridge into the yellow cartridge slot. I immediately corrected the problem but, now when I try to print I...


Try to reset your printer it might fixed your problems:
To reset your device do the following steps.

While the printer is on, remove the power cord from the back of the printer, wait 30 seconds, and then plug the power cord into the back of the printer.
If the printer is not already on, turn it on by pushing the power button.
Try printing again. I think it will help you.


Thanks

unplog the printer.open the catridges & put it again.check printer properties.if it shows the catridge it's all ok.
else re install the printer.

I have a Canon Pixma IP 5000 inkjet printer and am using Mac OS 10.3.9. It has 5 ink cartridges: 2 black (3e and 6) and one each yellow, magenta and cyan. I use it all day every day. After printing...


Thanks for getting back to me.
Sorry this ain't a solution but it seems to be the only cash-free way to contact you. No problem not solved - though I have tried everything. Dismantled the printer; washed, dried and replaced the waste ink pads; washed the print head; blew compressed air through the print-head sponge; replaced the cartridge 3 times; printed hundreds of test prints. I can't think of anything else to do and so I think the only solution is to replace the printhead (probably not even available) or replace the printer. The latter is looking most likely.
