    To resolve the issue:
    1. Make sure you install the correct type of KODAK Ink Cartridge for your printer. Currently we offer two types of ink cartridges (10 Series and 30 Series). Installing the wrong type of ink cartridge may result in this error. You will need to install a new, correct type of KODAK Ink Cartridge.
      NOTE: For more information, see Which ink cartridges to buy for all-in-one printer.
    2. If you are using the correct type of KODAK Ink Cartridge, reinstall the color ink cartridge.
      1. Open the printer access door.
        NOTE: If the ink cartridges don't move to the center, see Printhead and ink cartridges don't move to center with access door open.
      2. Wait until the printhead is idle and silent, then pinch the latch on the color ink cartridge with your thumb and forefinger and lift it out of the printhead.
      3. Install the color ink cartridge back into the printer, making sure to press down on the thumb tab until it clicks into place.
      4. Close the printer access door. For printers with LCDs, follow the instructions on the LCD screen.
        For more information on installing ink cartridges, see the Extended User Guide for your printer. Review Maintaining Your Printer - Replacing ink cartridges.
    3. If the error continues, restart your printer:
      1. Turn off the printer by pressing the power button.
      2. Wait five seconds.
      3. Turn on the printer.
    4. If the error continues, and you have extra, new KODAK Ink Cartridges on-hand, try to install a new ink cartridge (or a set of new ink cartridges).
    5. If the error continues, contact us.
    When the issue is resolved, we highly recommend that you upgrade the firmware for your printer for optimum performance:
    1. Locate and select the firmware for your printer.
    2. Follow the instructions to install the firmware.

    Mostly, printer cartridge error occurs when the printer head is unable to identify the cartridge properly. And the basic reason behind this is that the cartridge is improperly attached.

    To reattach the cartridge check the following steps :

    turn on the lid of the printer and then remove the cartridge from the printer head.

    Check the cartridge to make sure that there are no scratches or other damaged parts that can contribute to a printer cartridge error report.

    Take note that the cartridge should not be left open for more than 30 minutes; otherwise the ink will start to dry up and the cartridge will get clogged.

    I have a lexmark 2580, I keep getting 'unsupported cartridge' message, and one of the lights on the printer is constantly blinking. I have brand new lexmark cartidges installed.


    Problem Unsupported Cartridge; Error: "Unsupported cartridge"; Incompatible cartridge error; Incompatible cartridge in the printer; Cartridge not recognized Solution What you will see
    When a cartridge is inserted, an Unsupported Cartridge error message is displayed on the printer operator panel.
    Affected printers
    This issue affects printers sold exclusively in the Dixon Store Group (DSG) in Europe and in Circuit City in the U.S. NOTE: The cartridges for these printers are sold exclusively in these stores or on their websites.
    Explanation
    The printers listed in the table below are compatible with a #2 cartridge (in single cartridge printers) or a combination of #2 and #3 cartridges (in two-cartridge printers). They do not support the standard color 28A 35, and Mono 29A 34 ink cartridges. If the standard color 28A 35 or Mono 29A 34 ink cartridges are used in these printers, they will fail to print and the printer will post an Unsupported Cartridge error message.
    Solution
    Lexmark recommends using either a #2 cartridge for single-cartridge printers or a combination of #2 and #3 cartridges in two-cartridge printers.

    What ink cartridges does a canon mp520 take? currently using 5 PGBK black, have been told I can use 8 black, but don't know how to install it


    Your printer uses 4 cartridges: PGI-5 Black and CLI-8 (Cyan/Magenta/Yellow). Unless you have a slot for a fifth cartridge, CLI-8BK cannot be used in your printer.


    As for installing new cartridges:
    1. Turn your printer on.Open the printer's lid. The printer will automatically move the ink cartridges to the center of the opening.
    2. Unplug the printer's power supply cord from the electrical outlet to avoid the risk of an electrical shock.
    3. Remove the printer cartridges by first pressing down on the top of each cartridge housing. Pressing down on the cartridge housings will cause the top of each housing to automatically lift up, thereby exposing the cartridges. Lift the cartridges out of each cartridge housing to remove them.
    4. Install the replacement ink cartridges by first removing the orange safety tape located on either the top or the bottom of each cartridge, depending on the particular type of cartridge. The safety tape ensures that the cartridges do not leak ink before being installed. To remove the tape, simply pull the orange tab on the end of each piece of tape away from each cartridge. Position each cartridge into its cartridge housing so that the printed words on top of the each cartridge faces towards the front of the printer, then close the tops of the cartridge housings.
    5. Plug the printer's power cord into an electrical outlet, then close the access panel by pressing down on the panel.
    6. Turn the printer on and allow the printer a few minutes to recognize the new cartridges, then insert at least three pieces of paper into the paper tray, which the printer will require to align the cartridges.
    7. Align the new cartridges by selecting either the "Clean and Align" or the "Cartridge Alignment" option, depending on the particular printer model. Some Canon models require the user to align the cartridges through the printer's software program. Select the "Print Properties" option in the printer's program, then select the "Clean and Align" option. The printer will produce several printed pages to confirm that the cartridges have been aligned. Other Canon models allow the user to align the cartridges directly from the printer. These printers features a display screen on the printer. Press the "Menu" button on the display, then use the arrow keys to select "Settings." Press the "OK" button, then use the arrow keys to highlight "Maintenance." Press the "OK" button, then use the arrow keys to highlight "Manual Head Align." Press the "OK" button, then use the arrow keys to highlight "Yes." Press the "OK" button one final time, then allow the printer to produce the printed pages confirming that the cartridges have been aligned.

    Replaced ink in printer with generic ink cartridges and error message 1203 came up.


    A person might notice that buying new, name brand, ink cartridge for printer rapidly becomes quite an expenditure. Nonetheless, there are quite a lot of different methods to find the equal quality standard for a alot lower price. Your primary options are: name brand (OEM) ink cartridge for printer, matching generic ink printer cartridges or remanufactured ink printer cartridges.
    When you are purchasing a replacement photo printer cartridge, consumers do have choices. It’s frequently assumed that shoppers are required to buy the expensive, name brand, cartridge for laser printer from the manufacturer, or the service contract will become void. Their belief merely is not correct. By law, the use of compatible replacement inkjet printer cartridges does not render null and void the printer makers guarantee. In truth, you can choose to get less pricey compatible cartridge for laser printer, or remanufactured cartridges, often with a realized savings of between 40% and 75%. All chief ink laser printer cartridge brands have matching versions, including IBM, and Xerox.

    Name Brand Inkjet Cartridge for Laser Printer
    Nearly all major makers of laser printers also create the replacement inkjet printer cartridges that are best matched for their particular laser printers. This option is ordinarily the most expensive, and in a lot of situations it is the lone choice available if you happen to get a new laser printer whose producer implanted computer chips in the ink printer cartridge. The point of this chip may possibly be to regulate the color ink flow, limit the cartridges use, or to standardize the cartridge in alignment. Nevertheless, if you pick out a similar, or remanufactured, cartridge for laser printer, it might not be able to interconnect with the laser printer and may harm the laser copier or cause it to quit working.

    Comparable Generic Inkjet Cartridge for Laser Printer
    When thinking about purchasing an ink printer cartridge for your laser printer, the key aspect you must to bear in mind is the price. Buying a brand new ink laser printer cartridge will be based upon how much you are prepared to give. You can buy a new brand name cartridge for printer, or you might purchase a new compatible (generic) ink printer cartridge. Both types of ink printer cartridges might provide you with the same quantity, quality and performance you insist on from your printer. The major difference is in cost: a brand name ink printer cartridge might easily cost nearly twice the price of a compatible cartridge for printer.
    Compatible (generic) inkjet laser printer cartridges are made to meet OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) specs. These makers usually set very lofty standards of dependability and quality and also provide high quality results, regularly exceeding the quality specifications established by the OEM. These cartridge for printer are produced with new parts and are a lower priced option to costly name brand ink printer cartridges.
    Buyers might also be surprised to see that the generic comparable cartridge will publish the same amount of, or more, pages than the original OEM cartridge. Largely, this is since certain original OEM ink laser printer cartridges are not filled all the way up. In this situation, a compatible ink cartridge for printer could give you twice the advantage: it reduces your price per cartridge and cost per page by printing additional pages

    You have to install the software first and then plug in the USB cable.
    If the printer was working before then try another USB port on the computer or even another cable or reinstall the software.

    Right cartridge incorrect" and "Left cartridge incorrect


    Many newer HP Printers internally keep track of your cartridges by a serial number embedded into the cartridge. When it's low, the printer remembers. This is entirely done within the printer itself, and not the printer software. Some printers EXPIRE the cartridges after 18 months according to the installation date even it is not empty.

    Outrageous, but true.

    A fix? Most HP printers will only keep 2 cartridges in memory, so if you have 2 extra cartridges, (even empty ones) you could cycle them through to reset the printers memory, and reset the ink level to full. Basically, even though you've refilled your cartridge, the printers has the cartridge's serial number stored in memory. This will reset it.
