If you are attempting to insert a cartridge into a new printer, you may find that there is nothing to brace the cartridge against when you are supposed to push up on the cartridge. The problem is that the ink dispensing unit (which travels along the page dispensing ink during printing) is all the way to the right side of the printer. To get it to the left side (to insert the ink) turn the printer on, then the ink dispensing unit will travel to the left, allowing you to insert the ink as described by the instructions.

I tried to install non-genuine ink cartridges into my Canon MG5150 and now it wont work. It comes up with "B200 printer error unplug and contact service centre" How can i get it working again?

I am sorry to hear that you are having problems with this ink cartridge.
There may be several reasons for the problem.
Lets start out by installing the old ink cartridge if you have it. If you have the old cartidge and reinstall it and don't get the error than I would suggest purchasing another replacment cartridge. IF you still get the error with the old ink cartridge than you will need to send your printer off for service. ( i suggest purchasing a new printer before paying for service.)
Also most of the printer companies have install RFID chips in ink cartridges, So unless its a factory ink cartridge it may note actually work in your printer.
Canon, Lexmark, and HP all use RFID ( radio frequency identification) This prevents you from purchasing cheaper cartridges so you are left with either refilling you old cartridges or purchasing OE ( original Equipment).
I hope this helps you with your problem, feel fee to let me know if there is more I can do for you.

New ink cartridge in printer saying empty

Assuming you have a refilled or remanufactured cartridge there this is actually pretty normal. These cartridges have no means of checking for new ink in the cartridge so will continue to warn of empty. They will not however stop you from printing as a result.

If however you purchased the cartridge as a brand new cartridge, you may have been miss-sold the cartridge. In which case I would advise speaking to whoever it was purchased from.

I've just took my ink cartridge to Walgreens where they refill ink cartridges, and Lexmarks is one of the ones they provide this service for. However, once I got home and installed them in the printer, I...

Seeing as the printer was working before you had it filled at Walgreens, I would have to say that there is a problem with the cartridge, buy a new one and if it doesn't work try to find a new Lexmark that can use this cartridge!

Hp officejet v40 won't recognize new cartridge


Your printer may need to be reset.

* Turn on your printer and re-install the old empty printer cartridges

* Wait for the printer to finish its cycle for recognizing the printer cartridge.

* Turn off your printer and unplug it from the power source.

* Clean your printer head and the electrical connections of the new printer cartridge. Be careful if you have already tried to install this prior since the ink may run.

* Plug back the printer into the power source and turn on the printer.

* After the printer has warmed up, do the normal process of installing your new printer cartridge.

If this doesn't work, it could be that the printer cartridge is faulty. Take the printer cartridge, its box and the receipt to the office supplies store or computer store where you purchased this and ask for a replacement, explaining the problem.

I hope this helps.

Your printer takes the HP 56/57 cartridges. When you buy new cartridges you need to remove the black clip, then remove the strip of tape that covers the print head, then the cartridge can be installed in the printer.

Printer error

I've encountered this same problem, it could be that the ink cartridges that you have installed in the printer are either running low or out of ink.

I had the problem also and found that after I swapped out my cartridges with new ones that I purchased the blinking yellow light on the Alarm and the black and color cartridge.

If you do not want to purchase new ink cartridges to correct the problem you can can open the lid to your multifunction and remove the ink cartridges and place them in separate plastic sandwich bags and take them to any office supply store; Office Depot, Office Max, Staples and tell an employee there that you have run out of the ink and that you would want to have the cartridges refilled.

I actually went to an Office Max in Houston with my cartridges and they told me it would be cheaper to have them refilled than to purchase a new set of cartridges; that after I looked online and compared what they charged for new cartridges actually saved me $40 to have the one's I already had refilled.
