Question about HP Photosmart C6180 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Still says "replace ink cartridge" even after I did replace it

Hi hope you can help. My son and I were doing a science project and couldn't purchase any ink at that time of day. The warning sign came up that we were low on light magenta, but we kept pushing ok to just print without it to finish. Then it came up cannot print to ensure printer health. Purchased a new cartridge and installed it but it still says "replace the following empty cartridge to resume printing. Have tried factory resets, unplugging, cleaning contacts etc.

You are good at taking things apart and not destroying them, then the problem can usually be fixed easily.

Remove the ink carts.
on either side of the carrage there is a screw, remove both of them.

CAREFULLY slide out the silver bar those screws are holding. Be sure to note its orentation for putting the thing back in later.

also carefully remove the silver "fingers".

remove the black clip/cover on the right side of the carrage that covers the ribbon cables.

lift the head (you see 4 nipples in there-- that is the top of the head assembly)

gently pull out the ribbon cables.

on the bottom of the head is 2 screws, remove them

now the head will come into 4 parts. Nipples, Gasket, nozzle block, and a metal guard.

get some windex with amonia.

soak the parts for a day or 2.

blot dry, then let it set for atleast 2 days to be sure it is COMPLETELY dry.

reassemble, charge the ink, do the printers head cleaning, and boom. back in business.

this works 90% of the time

Printer will not print. New black ink cartridge. Color ink is almost gone. Help.


Printers that execute high quality images cannot (actually will not) allow printing when the other printer cartridges are almost gone or gone. This is a built in defense against the printer heads drying out and much servicing and expense.

You simply do not own a printer of any kind and allow the color cartridges or black cratridges to run out (or even get close) without having th replacement cartridge at hand for immediate installation.

This is how the printer manufacturer protects itself from costly warranty repairs and lawsuits.

Go immediately and buy the color ink cartridge and install it.

Black is the presence of all colors
White is the absence of all color

Your printer must draw in tiny increments from the color certridges to keep the heads functioning when you predominantly use black printed documents.

Science strikes again.

For God's sake, please do NOT leave me 2 thumbs up and trash my rating incrememntally because you aren't happy about this.

Regards,

TheSelkie

I have a Xerox 7300 that I started using Media Sciences toner in. I have had to replace 3 imaging units recently because they have locked up. Now 2 are locked up again. Media Sciences says they have not...


Hi.

Xerox says instead that the user should never used non original or refurbished cartridges, as in a number of cases this had been proven capable of damaging parts like the imaging unit.

I am sorry for Media Science, but they do not even have permission given by Xerox to build compatible cartridges (Xerox Corporation Filed a Patent Violation Lawsuit Against Media ).

Cartridges that have not built and tested with full printer manufacturer cooperation cannot be free of problems.

Also, I know that the 7300 is probably out of warranty, but using this cartridges on a new printer may invalidate the warranty.
Media Science does not make itself responsible in case one of their cartridge has damaged a printer.

My suggestion is to use original cartridges in future.

Best regards.

Ginko.

How do you change the black cartridge in the printer epson stylus nx115


Here is the Link showing instructions below. If you find this helpful, pls rate me.

http://files.support.epson.com/htmldocs/nx110_/nx110_ug/wwhelp/wwhimpl/js/html/wwhelp.htm

Replace Ink Cartridges
Your Epson Stylus NX110 Series and its software will let you know when an ink cartridge is low or expended.
If ink is low, the ink light flashes. You can continue printing until a cartridge needs replacement.
If a cartridge is expended, the ink light stays on. You must replace the cartridge to be able to print.

Warning:
Keep ink cartridges out of the reach of children and do not drink the ink.
Note:
If you need to change a cartridge before it or any other cartridges are low or expended, run the Ink Cartridge Replacement utility.

You cannot print or copy when an ink cartridge is expended even if the other cartridges are not expended. Replace any expended cartridges before printing or copying.

Leave your old cartridges in the Epson Stylus NX110 Series until you are ready to
replace them to prevent the print head nozzles from drying out.
When an installed ink cartridge is more than six months old, you may need to replace it if your printouts do not look their best, even after cleaning and aligning the print head.
Follow the instructions in these sections to check and replace your ink cartridges:
Check Cartridge Status
Purchase Epson Cartridges
Replace Cartridges Using a Printer Software Utility
Remove and Install Cartridges

pls rate me. Thanks and Good Luck...

After 15 color copies voice comes on Color ink LOW, Senior Citizen


The ink cartridges shipped with a new printer are not filled to full capacity as are the ones that you purchase for replacement. Office supply stores "Staples" "Office Depot" etc can refill your cartridges for about half of the cost of a replacement cartridge, I do not reccomend refilling the same cartridge more than twice but even after the second fill you can then trade the cartridge in for a discount on a new one.
Hopefully this helps.
You can also open the printer settings and lower the print resolution for jobs that do not need full color/resolution.

My lexmark will not work with refilled ink cartridges.


Lexmark is one of the best printers, Look to see if the heads on the printer are clean. Unlike most printers Lexmark cartridges dont do the controling, the printer does. My son replaces the cartridges, he doesn't refill because of the problem simular to yours.

Can we print with other three Color ink cartridges when Black Ink cartridge is emptied?


hi,

as u have ran out of ink you cant print anymore... you have to replace a new ink cartridge.... this is because when u print something, the colors will get mixed to print the exact color.... even if u are printing only in black, some other colors wil get mixed to produce the black color on the paper... so u need to change the ink cartridge.... u cannot run with a blank filled ink cartridge.... and the selection of your printer is very good...

thanks and regards

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...
