Printer says that cartridge needs changing but I have installed a new one

Hi

My printer is saying that the cartridge needs replacing even when I have just installed a new one. Have done this with a large black cartridge and also with the smaller combination of black and colour.

Have cleaned nozzle, head and rollers but still no success.

Can you help please?

    Hi

    Yes tried different cartridges. They were all new and they are Canon cartridges so it would be very unlucky to have fault cartridges from two different batches, ie one just black and the other the smaller black cartridge that sits with the colour cartridge

Hi julietr,

With the indulgence of qbal_del...

If the message displayed is "PUT IN CARTRIDGE", the fault is not new ink cartridge required. The printhead itself is not being sensed by the printer (page 12-21 of user's manual). Perhaps when you inserted the new ink cartridges, the printhead assembly may have been jarred loose. Pls verify that the printhead is seated properly to the cradle.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

did you check with another cartridge?

  • your new cartridge might not be good, it might with dried ink.
did you check whether this type of cartridge is copatible with your printer or not.
  • If you are using a different type of cartridge it will not work

Any more question, just Ask me

Thanks
Iqbal

MFC-J430W will not recognize any new magenta cartridge!


When installing the cartridges, it is important that you insert them from left to right with the black cartridge first and the magenta cartridge last. The reason for this is because the magenta cartridge has a clip on top of it that goes into the cartridge door sensor. The clip needs to push the sensor in so the printer is able to function with the cartridge door open. If you insert the magenta cartridge first, the printer will think the cartridge door is closed and you will get a error message for the other missing cartridges.

C4280 photosmart printer - printer screen says "Printer cartridge missing or not detected" - I replaced the old HP cartridge that was in when the message appeared with a new HP printer cartridge in but it...


Uninstall the program from your computer. Plug in your printer first replace with new cartridge making sure to remover the film on the cartridge Then plug in patch cord to computer, program should reinstall if need be you may have to have your disk that comes with the printer. Hope this works, Printers are going for very cheap I would suggest buying a new one if this does not work.

INK CARTRIDGES ALL NEW. SAYING THEY ARE EMPTY


Hi, i think during the process of changing the cartridges, the top lid on the ink cartridge that clips or keys the cartridge down inside the printer has been broken and needs to be replaced.

I suggest you get a technician to help get a replacement for this. With this your printer should be in other.

EPSON Stylus CX7400 won't accept ink cartridge


Mine acts up this same way (more often than not). I've found that as I install new cartridges, it helps to "tilt" it towards the chip end so that it "rubs" as it's going in. You'd normally hold both sides when replacing a cartridge but I don't even touch the outer end as I do it & it seems to help the printer "see" the replacement when installed.

C6280 printer color why does it say replace cartridge even after i put a new one in


Hi, This printer takes the "02" cartridges. If the cartridge is not being detected is because the "chip" in the cartridge is defective. Also because this printer takes 6 cartridge, make sure when you are changing the cartridge you are meant to change. For example lets say that blue and light blue are both low. Then light blue actually runs out and needs replacing. Make sure you do replace teh light blue instead of teh blue.
A way to validate this would be in the default screen of your printer the display show the amount of ink remaining on each colour. If you are replacing the one with no "bars" and with the warning symbol and after insertion the printer doesn't recognize the supply (ie shows the message of "HP original supply installed" and go through a "maintenance routine", the your supply is defective :(

Says that I need ink even though I just replaced it


Replace all the ink cartridges??????? If this is HP's idea of how to sell more ink my printer will be floating down the Ohio River very shortly.

New cartridge inserted but printer says I still need a new one


Hi. When I fitted the second set of cartridges to my Epson Stylus Photo 1400, the printer failed to recognize any of them, even though they were genuine Epson! I repeatedly installed and un-installed them without success. After giving it a bit of thought, I had a hunch that the contacts on the cartridges might not be making good contact with the contacts on the printer as the cartridges seemed a little loose. I removed each cartridge in turn and after putting some adhesive tape on the opposite end to the contacts, (there are grooves cut into this end, but the tape drops nicely into them when you install the cart) replaced them all. (This had the effect of pushing the cartridges harder against the contacts). Switched on again and all carts worked fine. So it seems that even Epson can't make the cartridges to fit their own printer properly! Having said that it's a great printer otherwise. I hope this is helpful to you.

hi

 

try cleaning the terminals of your printer cartridge and your new ink and install it again...

if samething happens try installing again your printer.

if still nothing happens maybe you purchase a deffective ink cartridge...

if that happens you can return it to the shop were you bought it and demand for a replacement cause most of manufacterer have warranties for their products...

 

hope it helps...
