Sounds like you did not "seat" the cartridge in correctly. Take the black cartridge out, make sure all the sealant tape is off of it, and snap it in again. This should fix your problem.

Caution lite flashing over cartridge of hp deskjet 940c. error message says that there is not color ink cartridge in printer. There is and the interface says the tank is full. It won't print...


Even though the interface says the cartridge is full, if the printer detects it being empty, odds are you will have to replace the color cartridge, even though you are only printing black.
You can try taking the cartridge out and cleaning the contacts with a pencil eraser and reseat the color cartridge. If no change, replace the cartridge.

Hello! I would like to know how you can clean the cartridge for the following printer - HP PSC 1210 all in one printer,please,thank you?


Go into the tools menu on the printer then find clean cartridges option and select it. Normally it will print out a page of lines and boxes. You may have to do this a couple times depending on the situation with your printer.

Just put new color cartridges in and tested print and it showed all color bars however when i ask it to print it does not print out anything in black


You didn't say what brand/model of printer you are using, but a lot of printers nowadays have a color cartridge(s) and a separate black cartridge. Perhaps the black cartridge needs to be replaced, too?

I put in a new black cartridge and it keep saying that the ink is low.


Check to make sure you're not buying trial cartridges. Often times when the manufacturer says to buy number XX it's another trial that's only half filled, I found this out about my Lexmark printer when I went to a local printer shop.

The black cartridge will not load, it keeps telling us the cartridge is not the right one. we tried to put in the old cartridge and it will not work either, it keeps giving us the same error.


I was reading my printers manual and it don't state anything about error messages except to click the help button when the error message pops up. that must be help specific to that error. Good Luck.

Unfortuantely , to solve the issue , sadly, yes you will have to replace the empty cartridge to continue to use the printer in a normal fashion. Its a sneaky and dirty trick many printer manufactuers do to make more money off of the customer through the purchase of printer ink.
