SOURCE: Black ink print failure after cartridge replaced

The Edge, -Clean the electrical contacts on the printer where the cartridge connects with alcohol. After it dries clean the same contacts with a regular pink, non-abrasive pencil eraser making sure you remove all the debris when done. -Its also possible there is an air bubble preventing the flow of ink. You can try inserting a full cartridge of ink in the printer and letting it sit overnight then running a nozzle clean job or two. Another alternative if you have a syringe you may want to try gently forcing ink into it. If you?re really desperate you can try drilling a small hole into the cartridge to give gravity feeding a hand. BE WARNED the air hole will let ink flow pretty well and you run the chance of making a mess. Before you pull the cartridge out of the printer make sure you cover the hole with tape so the ink doesn?t make even more mess. -Check the cartridge alignment making sure the contacts are mating to the printer. -If it still doesn?t work I would try cleaning your nozzles. Even though I doubt you have clogged nozzles its worth a try because of the following: If you search the Internet you?ll find that this specific model is know for failing to print some or all colors after about 1 ½ to 2 years of use, even with Epson inks. Most of the posts I?ve seen blame it on clogged nozzles but I suspect a good number of them, like yours, have another explanation for their failure. Ink jet printers use resistors to create heat to create a bubble in the ink to eject it out of the nozzle (Bubble jet) or in the case of Epson, vibrating crystals push ink into and out of the nozzles (piezoelectric). We?ve already cleaned the electrical contacts and cleaned the nozzles so what remain are defective nozzles, short between the nozzle and the controller board or a defective controller board. Since the printer is only worth 1 or 2 hundred dollars repairs at a shop or buying these repair parts can easily exceed ½ its cost. Hope something here works for you, I just recently had to toss a great printer too. Let us know what happens and please don?t forget to rate the posting.

SOURCE: can't rotate ink cartridge to change

Read some of the other problems and answers and found out how to move the cassettes around manually.
Press a little spring loaded button beneath an oval hole to the left of the cassette removal hole with something like a key or flat screwdriver. This enables the cassettes to be moved around manually anti-clockwise until the one that needs changing is in position. Then just carefully pull it out. Push in the new cassette after rolling and rocking to ensure the toner is distributed as advised in all instructions.
This method is actually much easier that trying to do it from the software in your your PC or Mac. Don't know if it means that some things are not reset - but it worked perfectly for me. In fact once I knew how, it was the easiest cassette change I have ever done........!

SOURCE: Dear Sir, Photo printer wizard will

There are mainly three possibilities causing this issue.
1. Ram i.e. Memory
2. Connection between the Printer and the Computer.
3. Spooler.

First of all, try to print the pictures using a Pdf Printer, i.e. PDF Creator or similar applications. This will help us find out if there's Ram (memory) issue. Download and install this (Click Here), open the link and click "Download Now!" button. This application is called "PDF Creator". It's not actually a program, but a Virtual Printer which prints documents as Pdf files. [If you have other similar application, you need not to download this.] Once it's installed, it should show up as printer "PDFCreator" in the "Printers and Faxes" folder. Run the windows "Photo Printing Wizard", select all the pictures of the album and select the PDFCreator as printer, you'll be prompted to save the file somewhere, save it on the desktop, it should run the process several or few minutes depending on the number of photos/documents. Do this several times and make sure there's no error or problem, if there's problem, then I would recommend you to install additional or another Ram and try again.
But if there's no problem printing this way, then Uninstall and Reinstall the printer's drivers and softwares. You may need to restart your computer for the changes to take effect. After this is done, try printing the photos again, but first as Pdf file as mentioned above not directly to the printer, otherwise you'll loose Ink and Papers.
I would also recommend you to try with another Cable, i.e. printer's USB cable.

Let me know if you need further help.
Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Hi, My Canon MP210 printer is displaying E3 code. The colour light and alarm lights are illuminated constantly and black one is flashing. When opening the "lid", the cartridges do not align to...


I have workaround for the empty tank issue:
- buy or borrow another not empty tank
- place it in
- start the printer
- it recognises the "new" tank
- turn off the printer
- put back the old, empty, but refilled tank
- turn on the printer
- print something
- it will pop up a dialogue window saying
"The ink level of the black/color tank cannot be
determined. The ink level determining function will be
disabled for the black/color tank.
If you want to continue printing without this function
press the Start button on the printer."
- Press the Start button on the printer and ignore the
button 'Cancel Printing' appearing on the dialogue window.
- The dialog window disappears.

You can print your refilled tank as many times you want from this time.

When you go to 'Printers /Canon /Properties /Maintenance / Printer Status / Ink Information' it says that the ink level measuring function has been disabled for: black [40] / color[41]. You can ignore this this message, the printer will work perfectly without this stupid function.

Replaced ink cartridge and it still says low ink


There is no way to reset the ink levels on this type of cartridge. Therefore, your printer will always think refills are empty. You can choose on the dialogue box to "ignore ink levels" and run the cartridge until it is empty. This is just one thing you will need to deal with on refills of this cartridge type.

New printer. Black cartridge doesn't work. No black on test sheet


Try

Resetting the Ink Counter When an ink tank is replaced, the ink counter must be reset. The low ink warning is only displayed properly if the ink counter is reset.

Message Prompting Confirmation of Ink Tank Replacement
If an ink tank is removed, the printer will output a message prompting you to confirm replacement of the ink tank at the start of the next print job.
When an ink tank has been replaced, follow the procedure below to reset the ink counter. The low ink warning is only displayed properly if the ink counter is reset.
Important
If infrared communication is performed in Windows XP or Windows 2000, the printer will not output the message asking for confirmation of ink tank replacement.
Reset the ink counter from the printer driver when you replace the ink tank.

1 Check the message, and click Yes.

Note
Mistakenly clicking No instead, will prevent the low ink warning from functioning properly. If this happens, be sure to open the driver's Properties dialog box and manually reset the ink tank counter in the Maintenance tab.


2 Select the replaced ink tank, and click OK.
The dialog box allows you to select the replaced ink tank.
When both black and color ink tanks have been replaced, select both Black and Color.
If you have not replaced the ink tank with a new one, click Cancel.

Resetting the Ink Counter in Printer Properties dialog box

1 Open the Printer Properties dialog box and click the Maintenance tab.
2 Click Ink Counter Reset.
3 Select the newly installed ink tank, then click OK.

Different ink settings banding


Try doing a printer head alignment, sounds like the printer heads are overlapping causing the banding.
Screen colors also never match perfectly to the print either, whist your monitor can produce millions of colors, the printer can only do some many.

Epson 4800 won't initialize after changing black cartridge


Did you change from matte black to photo black? Or vice versa? If so you have to use the ink conversion kit that came with your printer and draw out the old ink and install the new black in cartridge. Try page 113 in your owners manual. I am having a similar problem but with the light cyan and it says "set ink cartridge".

Printing paper choices


The paper types available in the driver are dependent on which type of black ink cartridge is loaded in the printer. If the Photo Black ink is loaded, you should have various glossy paper choices. If the Matte Black ink is loaded, you will have a choice of plain or Matte paper types. Once the cartridge is switched, you will get the corresponding paper choices.
