The contacts located just back of the cartridges inside the printer cavity are damp or smeared with ink. This often splashes up during a cartridge change. Use cotton buds and with a little alcohol to clean them and finish with a dry cotton bud. Equally clean the cartridge chip.

My new epson p 50 don't work with new refill ink rechargable, the printer say don't recognize the ink, but the seller tell me there no problems of compatibility... why my printer don't work???

  1. With the ink cartridge holder in the ink cartridge replacement position, lift the lids on the cartridges but do not take them out.

    • If the cartridge holder is not in the ink cartridge replacement position, press and hold the maintenance_button.gif Maintenance/ fonte1.gif ink cartridge replacement/ cleaning_button-also-ink_cart_replacement.gif cleaning button (depending on your printer model) until the holder moves out.
  2. Check the yellow tag/flap has been removed from the top of the cartridges.
  3. Push down firmly on each cartridge to make sure it is clicked into place.
  4. Close the lids down gently but firmly so they click into place. Be careful not to touch the cartridge sensor.
  5. Press the maintenance_button.gif Maintenance/ fonte1.gif ink cartridge replacement/ cleaning_button-also-ink_cart_replacement.gif cleaning button on the panel to move the carriage back to the right hand side and start the ink charging process.

    • This process takes about one and a half minutes to complete.
    • When ink charging is finished, the print head returns to its home position on the far right, under the plastic casing. The dx4400onbutton.jpg power light stops flashing and remains on, and the black%20ink%20icon.jpg error light goes out.

  6. If the black%20ink%20icon.jpg error light flashes after the print head returns to the home position, the ink cartridge may not be installed properly. getfile.aspx?rid=110

  7. If the red light is no longer displayed, but Status Monitor still reports a Non-Genuine Ink warning when the cartridges are genuine, perform a full uninstall and reinstall of the printer driver, using the latest driver from the Drivers & Software section of the Epson Support website. For help with this step, see one of the following Related Articles:

  8. If the red light is still on the printer, and Status Monitor indicates that an ink cartridge is not recognised, follow the steps below:

    1. Power the printer OFF.
    2. Disconnect the power lead for 60 seconds.
    3. Reconnect the power lead. Do not power the printer on yet.
    4. Perform a printer operation check.

I am trying to change the black cartridge on an Epson Stylus C48 printer. I lift the printer flap and usually the cartridges slide out from the right hand side but today they are remaining hidden! I think...

The cartridges should slide though they are not empty as usual. Try the proper method few more times. Failing that, switch off the printer & lightly pull the cartridges & replace the needed one. Shout the printer cover and then power on. The cartridges will goto the correct position.

Problem with Dell 1720 printer


You have to check couple things in this case.

Ensure that the printer cover is closed.
  1. Remove the toner cartridge.
  2. Firmly shake it side-to-side and front-to-back several times to redistribute the toner.
  3. Reinsert the toner cartridge, and continue printing.
Repeat this procedure multiple times until the print remains faded. When the print remains faded, replace the toner cartridge.

The imaging drum is approaching full and needs to be replaced. Order a new imaging drum.

ML-2510 Laser Printer : persistent blinking red light


This problem you will be noticed when toner is 90% empty.
Does the printer is functioning or No. If yes the problem is 90% toner is finished.[10% toner remaining alert]
If printer is not functioning Please change the toner from Genuine dealer. Else your printer fails due to non genuine and refilled toner.

I changed the black ink cartridge and now not working

Did you remove the plastic sticker over the print head of the cartridge?

Are you using a refilled cartridge? Most cartridges have a sensor that tells the printer how much ink is left. When companies refill them they do not replace the sensor, so a completely full cartridge will still tell the printer that it is empty.

Re you using genuine HP NEW cartridges? If not, you must make sure that whoever has re manufactured the ones you are using has replaced the chip on the cartridge. This tells the machine how many copies are on the cartridge.

"Change cartridge" light stay's on after replacement

What exactly does the status monitor say? Your printer may have a problem with the counter or if the machine simply does not see the cart there could be an issue with the print head or the main board.
