Question about Printers & Copiers
After you get the carriage centered to remove the ink, power off the printer. If you replaced the cartridge with a new cartridge check cartridge for tape residual that might be covering the copper contacts. ( you may not be able to see this).
If you use a refill kit. Most printer Mfg's insert a chip in all there ink cartridges. This chip tracks when you remove an empty cartridge through the printer software. So it knows you replaced the same cartridge forcing you to buy another.
You can also clean the copper ink cartridge contacts with some alcohol & cotton swabs. (Careful not to drip excessive alcohol onto the bottom of the cartridge). Clean the carriage contacts as well. Re-place the cartridge & try again.
