Hi Shakey

If you try resetting the printer (Turn it Off and On) it will normally re-read the ink level and indicate the proper ink levels.

Please ensure you always turn your printer off by the power switch when not in use as this will allow the printer to "Park" the heads and prevent them from drying out.

If you unplug the printer, or use a powerbar the printer doesn't have the opportunity to go though its "Power Down Sequence" and ensure the heads are parked properly.

It is also recommended to use the printer (at least once a month) if not more frequently daily/weekly to ensure the heads are clean.

If you go fo long periods without changing cartridges, the cartridge itself can start to dry out, and will sometimes also contribute to clogging the heads more quickly.

Try removing the print head again, removing the ink and re-cleaning the print head. Once it has been cleaned leave it to air dry for a few days before returning it to your printer and make sure the ink cartridges are fully clipped in. Let me know how you get on.

My printer keeps sayon my black ink cartrige needs replacing but its a new cartrige


Mostly, printer cartridge error occurs when the printer head is unable to identify the cartridge properly. And the basic reason behind this is that the cartridge is improperly attached. To reattach the cartridge, turn on the lid of the printer and then remove the cartridge from the printer head. Check the cartridge to make sure that there are no scratches or other damaged parts that can contribute to a printer cartridge error report. Take note that the cartridge should not be left open for more than 30 minutes; otherwise the ink will start to dry up and the cartridge will get clogged.

The printer do not recognize the new replacement cartrige


I have many epson printer, some more than 5 years old. It's ok. some have printed more than 50.000pages, it's ok.
If Ink cartridge Unrecognizable, there are two posibilities : Chip Error at ink tank, or printer error. For chip error, try to plug the ink tank to another printer (same type). If the ink tank recognized by other printer, so the problem is printer.
So ;
1. Check chip conector at head carriage.
2. Check the wiring of the head, and chip.
If two point above is ok, the last action is check the power supply and board. It may be epprom is damage.

Black ink not printing


This is what worked (so far) with my Dell1.gif AIO A940 printer1.gif that wouldn't print black ink.

It worked for awhile when I chose photo/glossy paper, but then it quit printing again (see below).

PRINT, PROPERTIES, PAPER SETUP, SPECIALTY PAPER, PHOTO/GLOSSY


I got it to print, again, by putting SEVERAL papers in the feeder (instead of just 1) - there is a sensor that is supposed to automatically detect paper type, and it might not be working right, especially with one or only a couple of sheets.

Cleaning the print head on my HP5440 printer?


Try cleaning the head of the cartrige with alcohol and a Q-tip, if this doesn't help you may have to buy a new one. Cartriges can dry up if they haven't been used for a while. Even though you refilled it, there could be some dry ink stuck in the head. Hold the Qtip with alcohol on the head for a bit and let it dry, reinstall it and then try printing again.
