Question about HP Inkjet 1200dn Printer

1 Answer

Doesn't recognise new cartridge

Yellow and/or black cartridge light indicates that cartridge is empty - even if it is still about 75% full. Replace cartridge with new HP cartridge, but lights still indicate cartridge is empty. Reset printer as per instructions manual. Still the same problem. Send printer to repair shop where they diagnosed a firmware error and fixed it. Printer printed once or twice, but now the same problem occurs.
Please advise.

    I have now tried to clean and calibrate the Print Heads, but with no success. In fact, to clean the Print Heads, the printer should print a page where I can see if it is fine. However, as soon as the PC sends this page to the printer, it would show briefly in the Print Queue and would disappear after a second or two. In the meantime the printer does not react on this and still indicated that the Black and/or Yellow cartridge needs to be replaced.

    Please help.

    I have already loaded brand new ink cartridges.

    The Repair Shop reported that they already fixed a firmware bug.

    The Printer worked correctly once or twice after that.

    Do I need to re-install the Printer Driver?

    I only have the Printer Driver on the CD that came with the Printer - do I need a newer version of the Printer Driver?

    Please advise.

Hello. I am getting a message that my yellow toner cartridge is empty and the printer (Konica Minolta 2300W)refuses to print out anything, even though I got it into the B/W mode. The complete message...


It won't print anything if one cartridge is empty, even black when the colour is empty. Are you using new or refilled cartridges? The cartridge has a chip on top that counts your number of prints, so it could feel full, but has reached it's end counter. Try another cartridge. That should solve your problem

The printer continue to display yellow light for colour ink catridge even after refill


Each cartridge comes with a chip which indicates whether the cartridge is full or empty. By refilling the cartridge the chip cannot be reset. If you cannot get past this message on the printer you may need to buy a brand new cartridge that is not refilled.

Printer keeps telling me that the yellow cart is empty and I have put a new one in


Are you positive it says the yellow cart is empty? Because that brother printer is designed to say that a cartridge is empty whenever ANY of the color cartridges are empty. Usually it doesn't tell you which one is really empty either. So even if you replaced the yellow cartridge and say, the black cartridge is empty, it still won't let you print until you replace that empty black cartridge, nor will you know which of the cartridges is empty unless you pull them out of the printer and manually check the ink levels.

Its pretty much a guessing game with those old brother ink printers.

Hope this helps :)

No cartridge the printer say. i put new cartridge in


It mean that the black cartridge is not recognised. It the black cart is original or compatible? Some printer won't recognise cartridge, if the black and colour is not same type. Try to install the black only. Is it recognised?

HP will not recognise new cartridge


The problem you are describing with the yellow cartridge sounds like ink starvation possibly due to a clogged print head or an air bubble in the print head. Since the machine is so new I would contact HP to get the print head replaced. As for the magenta cartridge, exchanging it for a new one at the store you bought it from should fix the problem. It sounds like the chip on the one you have is either damaged or wasn't set to read full ink levels.

New Cartridge error message


Did you check to make sure there is nothing covering the cartridge? I know that sounds dumb but that is what happened to me-I had mine refilled and it would not work and when I took it back in they said well-you just take this off here-it was a tiny piece of tape that was almost invisible!

Black electrical tape works like a charm on a Brother MFC-465CN. Thanks for the tip! :-)
