    My cartridge is newly filled, the cellophane is removed, and all the connection points are cleaned, but I have the same problem.

    I think Office Max has changed their supplier or something. I have used their ink for a long time and now I have started having problems. The last 3 times my printer will not recognize the cartridge, and says it is the wrong cartridge for my printer. It's not. It's the same one I have always used. I don't know what's up but they are going back. Again.

I replaced my black ink cartridge with a refilled from office max and it will not print in black. Why?


Most HP cartridges have what's called an ACCUM chip, which doesn't care about the actual ink level, it counts how many milliliters (or droplets) have gone through the head to determine when it's "empty" and therefore refilling doesn't do anything, the accum still says the cartridge is empty.

Canon mx700 not recognizing cartridges


I suspect that your have a damaged refilled cartridge. Also, you may have a clogged nozzle. Canon printers are sensitive to the quality of the ink used in the cartridges and refill ink sometimes does not meet the manufacturer's specifications. You can check this by inserting a new OEM cartridge, running the deep cleaning utillity three times and a aligning the printhead. The other problem may be that the electronic chip on the refilled cartridge may either be damaged or blocked by dried ink. In any case, you need to discard the failing cartridge and replace it.
Let me know if this solves the problem. Thanks.

Black and color cartridges refilled. originals back in printer...printer says no color cartridge installed.. have cleaned contacts on cartridge and machine, NO difference. can we print just in black if...


You need to have both black and color cartridges installed with functioning electronics to use your printer. Sounds like your original color cartridge and the refilled color cartridge you purchased both have bad electronics. I recommend Cartridge World or Office Depot for cartridge refills because they electrically screen their cartridges before selling them. You need to buy either a new or refilled color cartridge for your printer to work.

Did a black print cartridge refill at Costco. It


You used one of the worst refill services available. There's a reason they have a flat rate for refills, they use non cartridge specific inks, don't clean out the cartridge, and have a machine not a person do the thinking and the work for them. You will have similar failure on cartridges refilled by Walgreens, Office Max, and cheap online refills. I suggest Cartridge World first then Office Depot for refills. They have high quality standards and recycle your cartridges by refilling them.

818 cartridge refilling


If you mean the HP DeskJet F380 cartridges (the HP 21 and HP 22 cartridges) you will have unreliable success refilling these cartridges either yourself or online, at Costco, Office Max, and Walgreens. These refillers generally don't have fantastic quality control or knowledge of printer cartridges. I suggest Cartridge World or Office Depot refills. If you mean the HP Photosmart C8180 (the HP 02 cartridges) refilling them is easy but you need to replace the chip on the cartridge for it to work in your printer. As long as a refilled cartridge has a new chip it should work in your machine. Again I recommend Cartridge World or Office Depot refills.

Overpriced cartridges


Hi,

Lexmark printers are notorious for over-inking. Probably the most efficient inkjet printer I've owned is an HP (any HP inkjet model). What has become quite popular as of late are refill machines at the local office supply stores. I have my cartridges refilled for less than half the price of new cartridges. Staples and Office Max both have great refill machines, and often have a reserve of pre-refilled (recucled) cartridges that they sell. I do not know your region, but most of the larger office supply stores have these great machines.

Also, if you color print on regular paper a lot, the ink soaks (bleeds) into the paper fibre and tends to waste a lot of ink. If you do not have a largfe office supply store near you, you can purchase refill kits and refill them yourself.(which can be messy, but effective).

Hope this helps.

Black ink cartridge


Usually a contact issue. Try wiping the contacts in the carrier as well as the contacts on the cartridge. I have even cleaned the cart. contact with a pencil eraser then wiped them. If this does not work try a new cart.
hope this helps

Printer error


I've encountered this same problem, it could be that the ink cartridges that you have installed in the printer are either running low or out of ink.


I had the problem also and found that after I swapped out my cartridges with new ones that I purchased the blinking yellow light on the Alarm and the black and color cartridge.


If you do not want to purchase new ink cartridges to correct the problem you can can open the lid to your multifunction and remove the ink cartridges and place them in separate plastic sandwich bags and take them to any office supply store; Office Depot, Office Max, Staples and tell an employee there that you have run out of the ink and that you would want to have the cartridges refilled.

I actually went to an Office Max in Houston with my cartridges and they told me it would be cheaper to have them refilled than to purchase a new set of cartridges; that after I looked online and compared what they charged for new cartridges actually saved me $40 to have the one's I already had refilled.
