I have refilled ink in my cartridge but when i try to print nothing comes out i.e it gives faint copies


Ink is full but nib is faulty will pen writes? similarly cartridge refilled with ink but nozzles are clogged/blocked then print wont happen properly..before refilling the cartridge check nozzle status, clean nozzles properly then refill it. Remedy1:Take little warm water pour in small container dip nozzles in water wait some 2-3 minutes clean nozzle area with dry smooth cloth...try it till print quality improves..Remedy2: You can do clan/align process through printer drivers properties..

I have purchased new ink, all installed and my YELLOW won't print. Have done several ink head cleanings and alignment, etc, HELP! I love y HP, but I will go get something else!


Did you buy a brand new Hp cartridge, or did you buy a third party one or a refill kit? Sometimes after refilling a few times, the cartridge won't work anymore, and some of the 3rd party cartridges are cheaper, but inferior. If it was an Hp one, maybe it is defective? Hope this helps!

I HAVE A CANNON PIXMA MP170 AND IT KEEPS SHOWING THE MESSAGE WASTE INK FULL & CODE 5800 ... BUT I NEED TO USE THE PRINTER URGENTLY... PLEASE ADVISE.... MANY THANKS..


Hi:
The problem here is the waste ink pads are full, these pads are located at the lock posistion to the far right where the units cartridge holder goes when you power down the unit and on start up. The way to solve this to to have the pads replaced, they are used to collect the waste ink the printer uses to clean itself when starting up, These pads usually take a long time to fill up, so either you do alot of printing or you hve used Non Canon inks or generic refill cartridges in the past, these are not good for your printer as some of these types of inks are either to thin or to thick and fill the pads up prematurely..Keep in mind to always use recommended guine ink cartridges you may save a little now with ink refill cartridges but in the long run your printer will eventually give out.

Did a black print cartridge refill at Costco. It


You used one of the worst refill services available. There's a reason they have a flat rate for refills, they use non cartridge specific inks, don't clean out the cartridge, and have a machine not a person do the thinking and the work for them. You will have similar failure on cartridges refilled by Walgreens, Office Max, and cheap online refills. I suggest Cartridge World first then Office Depot for refills. They have high quality standards and recycle your cartridges by refilling them.

Samsung clp300 color laser printer not printing


The cartridge dried out and the moisture/liquid sensor will no longer detect new fillings though the layer. A good refill needs to be done before the ink is out. These are tedious little critters. Try the nozzle cleaning procedure several times(through your printer's software. Take out the cartridge and set the jets on a cotton ball soaked liberally with cleaning fluid. Run the nozzle cleaning procedure again.

HELLO! I HAVE A SHARP FAX MACHINE (UXA1000- INK CARTRIDGE UX-C70B)AND I WANT TO KNOW IF I CAN GET THIS CARTRIDGE REFILLED AT WALGREN'S STORES LIKE MOST CARTRIDGES.


You should be able to, but the problem is this:
they only refill it, if there is a problem with the cartridge it doesn't help.

there is more to just putting ink in a cartridge.
1- you must clean the inside removing dried ink
2-you must clean the nozzles tomake sure the ink can flow
3-replace any pads inside
4-refill ink

I have heard complaints about Walgreens so take your chances, a better solution may be a company called Rapid refill ink ( they do all the above to their ink crtgs)

Pictures with horizontal lines


I'm assuming the horizontal lines you're gtting are dark lines, not white omission lines and you are not currently using a cartridge that is leaking (otherwise, this solution is not appropriate). I had the same problem, and after a good deal of frustrating experimentation, found that the problem was caused by the cartridges picking up and retaining ink left on the little absorption pads where they rest. Normally, the pads should accomplish just the opposite effect, but it seems that after a certain amount of use (especially if you've ever had a defective, leaky cartridge), the pads just get too full. As the cartridge moves horizontally across your paper, ink picked up from these pads literally drips on your print. Could appear as lines and also as small smudge dots at the lengthwise travel stops where the cartridge travel reverses.

I could see that it would be fairly easy to remove the pads and either clean or replace them if I were to disassemble the housing of the printer. If you wish to do a really thorough job and you feel confident in your reassembly ability, go for it. I chose a quicker approach and it's solved the problem for the past two months: Open the lid and wait for the cartridges to move over to the left (cartridge replacement position). Then, pull the plug on your printer (or they will move back to the right after a few minutes). Use a small flashlight to locate the two absorbent pads over on the right, where the cartridges normally rest. With paper towels or any other absorbent disposable, blot those pads over and over until you get little or no ink on your paper towel. While you're at it, give the whole area under the lid a decent but gentle cleaning using a soft cloth or swab. Might take a couple of prints to completely eliminate the lines, since you won't be able to clean the underside of the cartridge carrier assembly this way, but this should solve your problem

Black ink cartidge


If a black cartridge will not print, with no error messages, it is probably th printhead. Clean it with proper cleaning solution. Refilled ones if done yourself or by someone else, can also have air bubbles, Try blowing down refill hole with tissue under the cartridge to stop ink spills. Also, if you press a folder non scented wipe under the cartridge firmly, you should get a solid little black line or impression. This will tell you if the ink is getting down ok. Try reprinting.

Yellow ink contaminated


Yes, do you refil your own inks. Colour contamination occurs primarily when users overfill ink holes with any colour, then this colour runs into others and voila, a yukky mess. If cartridges are fairly new, heres the quick easy fix. Remove cartridges that are causing the problem, in your case all! Using a proper cleaning solution (you can get this free in refill kits or buy it sepeartely, i got mine from supermarket, works well) and cotton buds, thoroughly clean down where the cartridges sit. There will be both fresh ink and dried ink, so you will have to repeat over and over until all or most colour is gone from cotton buds. Now, let it dry and air, leaving printer cover open. You now have to bleed the black ink as it sounds like it is overfull. This can happen in refilled cartridges, but even store bought ones can have faults. Sit the black cartridge on wet paper towel, on a clean icecream lid or marg lid, even a plate will do, just one that you don't mind ink on by accident. Let it sit a minute or so, now lift it up, and wipe it gently with a wipe (i use unscented baby wipes-huggies, do not laugh, they work well!) press it firmly on a folded tissue, and it should leave a nice clean neat black vertical little line. If it doeas, place it back in its place in printer. Leave open for now. The colour cartridge should need cleaning too, by doing the same, each time you lift it off wet paper towel, wipe it clean, and press it on a tissue to see clean neat 3 colour line. If not, bleed again until it does. When it does place it back in printer and reset ink levels once cover is shut. Try printing now.
