Do a Google search using the following string

Brother (Model Number) +manual

This will bring up a list of sites where you can download the manual - and by this means solve your problem.

Do not just "try your luck" by experimenting on how to load the cartridges - I have seen other questions on this site where people have buggered up thier printers by forcing things to move when changing the ink - everything should just "click" into place, no force should be necessary (and will mean that you are doing something wrong).

And remember "When all else fails, read the instructions".

Good luck.

My printer won't align new ink. It says load paper in tray. I load it. then blank page come out and gives me the same message. Load paper in tray. I did a diagnostic test and at the bottom it says...


Sorry to know you're in trouble with your printer. Here are my suggestions: You have to buy a new genuine cartridge or you can refill ink. Be warned! Refilling ink or using a refilled ink cartridges will not work until the ink cartridge chip or ink monitor is disabled. For instructions on how to disable an ink cartridge chip, please visit [http://www.ehow.com/how_6201242_disable-ink-cartridge-chip.html]Now you can CURSE the manufacturer of your printer for making your life sucks by making it complicated the things that should be made SIMPLE and EASY. Printer or Cartridge, more or less, cost you the same. Don't you think the printer cartridges should be made simply refillable/usable unless they are broken, and we should be buying only the ink for the cartridges. It is SO ANNOYING, dude! Good luck.

Did you already run the head cleaning cycle from the utility?

Acts like it is printing but does not apply ink has new cartridge and goes though the motions of printing but does not seem to be getting the ink spit signal to the cartridge.


I would try another cartridge especially if it is a refilled one. I don't think there is one "ink spit" signal, rather several so one would not stop it. In any case, probably not the printer but the cartridge that is failing. The refilled cartridges somehow bypass the ink available signal from the cartridge and the printer thinks everything is ok, sending firing signals to an empty cartridge. That's why I try another or try this one in another printer, if possible. If it is something wrong in the printer, a new printer is cheaper than the repair would be.

Printer will not print red. The red cartridge seems fine, with ink flowing freely, but it won't print onto the page.


its the problem of print head in your printer. You are not the only one facing this problem there are many other users facing this same problem.in canon printer users out of 10 users ---- 8 users face this problem.
Now I will explain the problem
In the printer where you insert the cartridges is called carriage.in the carriage there is a part called PRINT HEAD. In the print head there are tiny – tiny holes from where the ink passes.when you insert the cartridge in the carriage /head of the printer the ink from the cartridge passes from the head.but if the head is got blocked then the ink will not pass from the head and you get no print out still with the new brand cartridges.now in the printer there is a in built cleaning assembly , so when you give the command of cleaning from your pc/laptop the inbuilt cleaning assembly tries to clean the blocked ink in the tiny holes of the head.but if the ink is got stuck up hard the cleaning assembly in the printer does not have that much power to clean the ink in the head.the other procedure to clean the head is a manual cleaning.in this procedure the head needs to be removed from the printer by disassembling the printer.but in this case out of 100 only 4 to 5 heads gets cleaned and start working but that also don’t last long.its not any guarantee that how much the manually cleaned head will work.
In some cases it has been seen that ink gets used only in cleaning but after inserting new cartridges the printer starts working.if you have inserted new cartridges in the printer and still don’t get any printout then its advisable that you go for any other brand printer.hp is the best brand of printer. Or the other option is you take the printer to local printer repair shop to get the head manually cleaned if you at present don’t want to invest in new printer.a repair center have some special tools to clean the print head its 50 ---- 50 Chance.you can try that first.
This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

Dell all in one 946 printer


I have to ask this question of you, just to make sure this is not an issue. Are you using a factory new ink or toner cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridges that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks or toner causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead or photo conductors.
If you are using factory new ink or toner cartridges, then please call the manufacturer’s Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

Yes I have an cartridge error 50C and I can't seem to fix the problem.


Hi there Error 50c

Regarding the Dell A940 "Error 50c"....the user guide doesn't seem to mention "Error 50c". They do, however, mention a "Cartridge Error" on page 52 of the manual. They claim this means that the printer has detected a short circuit (fuse/resister) in the cartridge. As you may or may not have noticed in the manual, this is what they recommend doing about it:

1) Press Power to turn the printer off.

2) Lift the printer cover/lid (scanner unit) until the scanner support holds it open.

3) Turn the printer on.
The ink cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position unless the printer is busy.

4) Remove the color ink cartridge.

5) Lower the printer (scanner unit) until it is completely closed.
If the error message displays again, replace the black cartridge with a new black cartridge.

If the error message does not display, repeat steps 1–3 and then go to step 6.

6) Reinstall the color cartridge and remove the black ink cartridge.

7) Lower the printer (scanner unit) until it is completely closed.

If the error message displays again, replace the color cartridge with a new
color cartridge.
If there is no error message (indicated by flashing lights), repeat steps 1–3 and then reinstall both ink cartridges.
8) Lower the printer (scanner unit) until it is completely closed.

If you get the error message again, while both cartridges are installed, replace both of the cartridges.

Basically, what they want you to determine is,....if the short circuit is with the "black ink" cartridge or the "color ink" cartridge and then replace the cartridge that has the problem.

You may have to buy a new cartrige.
Please all I ask is call back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one, so I will keep on helping.

I just purchased an HP Photosmart C7200 All-in-one printer, loaded the ink cartridges and the screen says the magenta cartridge appears to be missing or damaged. I put in a new cartridge- same message...


Hi

If the printer is out of the Box, don not try any other ink cartridges, becoz you must use the HOST ink cartridges that is shipped with the printer for the first time.It seems that it is problem with Host ink cartridge.

You can check the cartridge whether its a Host ink cartridge or normal one by looking at the serial number.If Serial number starts with C9, it Host; if it starts with C8 its normal one.

Only HP can replace it , none of the store sells Host ink cartridges, they sell the replacement ones.
You can either call HP tech support or, return the printer to staples.

Thank You
