Question about HP OfficeJet 5110 All-In-One InkJet Printer

REmove and replace color Cartridge

It was working, then I started getting this message. When I remove and replace the printer does its thing, and then when the carraige gets to the right it starts making a very ugly rasping noise. I've been through all the re intializations suggested by the HP website and an online tech. Kept on making the noise and giving the error message.
In the end, I was told to get a new color cartridge. But that's 40 bucks, and no doubt I'll need a similarily priced black soon. A new Canon MX310 can be had for $90. Any chance HP is right about the problem?

I irretrievably broke the machine trying to get the carriage to move and bought a new Canon MX310 for $90, just slightly more than I would have paid for new ink cartridges.

I intalled new ink on my computer and it says to remove tape from cartridge when I all ready did and it will not work


Unplug the printer from the wall. Noe remove the power brick from the printer for 60 seconds. This will reset any error message the printer is getting. Plug the printer back in.

Turn on the printer. Open up the printer and take out the black cartridge and reseat it. Do the same for the color cartridge. Now close the printer and it will print an alignment page. Any error messages?

If you still get the error message, then it's possible that the sensor in the Dell Series 5 ink cartridge is bad. If this is a new Dell Series 5 ink cartridge, then take it back to the place of purchase for a replacement or refund.

black = black side(left) color = color side(right)

photo cartridge = black side(left color = color side(right)

Dell Series 5 ink cartridges have a sensor in them that cannot be reset. Article on refilling Dell ink cartridges.

Dell Series 5 ink cartridges can be purchased at Staples, Walmart or Dell's Website.

It's possible to purchase a Dell Series 5 ink cartridge with a bad sensor. Please take it back to the place of purchase for a replacement.

Changed ink cartridge now it won't work


Try removing the black and see if the error is still there. If it goes away the black is bad, if it stays you got a defective new color cartridge.

Error: Remove and replace color cartridge


Because the software inside the cartridge was not reset. They do not have the electronic equiptment to do that.  I believe you woudl have to refill the ink before you got the empty mesasage?

Dell printer model# A940 50c error


Test your cartridges.

Remove the color ink cartridge then lower the cover of your printer. If the error message displays again, replace the black cartridge with a new one (or return the new one). Reinstall the color cartridge and remove the black ink cartridge then lower the cover. If the error message displays again, replace the color cartridge with a new color cartridge.
Note: My manual indicated that the printer might have detected a short circuit in a cartridge. I returned a month old black cartridge got a new one and my printer is working fine now. Good luck.

Remove and check color cartridge


Sounds like the contacts are dirty. A cotton swab and some rubbing alcohol might help.

    Remove and check color cartridge


    I cleaned mine with alcohol and Q-tip and then shook it 25 times to insure that the ink was penetrating the application lines. My hunch is it first got dirty, and then dried up on the exterior prevent additional ink from leaving the cartridge.

    Ink cartridge problems


    exchanged the black cartridge (57): the printer told me there was a problem with it, that I should remove it and re-insert it. I did, the ink button still blicks. After several efforts the printer started to work again, printed one document and then told me there was a problem with the colour cartridge. I removed it, re-inserted it several times. Finally a test page was printed - everything was okay.

    Then the printer refused to print anything - the yellow LED lamp blicks continuously. Have turned the printer on and off, have also shut down the computer and re-started.

    The only thing that will work now is the black cartridge, if I remove the colour one.
