Hi -- just happened to me tonight, and I finally tried this: Open the inner tray lid. When the inks pull out, they'll be sitting in front of a hinged piece of plastic, directly over the paper dispensing tray. You may have pulled down this hinged piece to get to the ink cartridges. I apparently did. After a bunch of tries, I finally noticed that it was down and bent it back up. That did the trick.
Good luck.

Black cartridge is new. registers low ink level and does not print at all.


Unplug the printer from the wall. Noe remove the power brick from the printer for 60 seconds. This will reset any error message the printer is getting. Plug the printer back in.

Turn on the printer. Open up the printer and take out the black cartridge and reseat it. Do the same for the color cartridge. Now close the printer and it will print an alignment page. Any error messages?

If you still get the error message, then it's possible that the sensor in the Dell Series 5 ink cartridge is bad. If this is a new Dell Series 5 ink cartridge, then take it back to the place of purchase for a replacement or refund.

black = black side(left) color = color side(right)

photo cartridge = black side(left color = color side(right)

Dell Series 5 ink cartridges have a sensor in them that cannot be reset. Article on refilling Dell ink cartridges.

Dell Series 5 ink cartridges can be purchased at Staples, Walmart or Dell's Website.

It's possible to purchase a Dell Series 5 ink cartridge with a bad sensor. Please take it back to the place of purchase for a replacement.

I was installing the yellow ink and then all the sudden after I installed it the message Error Oxc18a0301 appeared! How do I fix this?


Shut down your printer by pressing Simultaneously Cancel + OK + Black + Color.
Complete the steps below in the order presented to resolve the problem. It might not be necessary to complete all of the steps.
NOTE: The printer will not operate unless all six ink cartridges are installed. Also, HP cannot guarantee the quality of refilled or re manufactured ink cartridges. Step one: Reset the printer CAUTION: Do NOT perform any other type of reset on the printer before the ink initialization process has been completed.
  1. Without turning the power off, remove the power cord from the back of the printer and from the wall socket.
  2. Wait 30 seconds and reconnect the power cord to the printer and to the wall socket. Turn the unit on if it is not already turned on.
  3. Check the printer for the error message. If the error message still displays, go to the next step.
Step two: Clean the cartridge contacts
  1. Lift the top cover. Figure 1: Lifting the top cover
  2. Locate the ink cartridge indicated in the error message. Squeeze the gray tab below the cartridge slot to release the latch and then lift the latch. Figure 2: Unlatching the cartridge 1 - Black cartridge 2 - Color cartridges
  3. Remove the cartridge indicated in the error message. Figure 3: Removing the cartridge
  4. Gather the following cleaning materials:
    • Distilled, filtered, or bottled water. Do not use tap water, alcohol, or platen cleaners.
    • Lint-free cloth or swab. Eyeglass wipes and coffee filters work well.
  5. Lightly moisten the swab or cloth and squeeze out the excess moisture.
  6. Holding the cartridge by its handle, wipe the copper contacts. Figure 4: Wiping the contacts (1) - Copper contacts
  7. Replace the cartridge and then close the latch and the printer top cover.
  8. Check the printer for the error message. If the error message still displays, go to the next step.
    NOTE: The printer may take up to 15 seconds to clear the error and recognize the cartridge after closing the cover.
Step three: Replace the cartridge If the error message still displays, replace the indicated cartridge with a new cartridge

My large black ink cartridge with not print correctly on my Canon Pixma MP830. All the other colors work fine. I've done numerous cleaning and deep cleaning. Then replaced the cartridge and it still prints...


Are your black ink cartridges genuine Canon ones?
Are the contacts clean when you remove the cartridge?
If not blow off with compressed air and a clean brush, if necessary.

Canon.com's site covers the verification that the cartridges are installed correctly below:


Issue: Black ink does not print
Solution: Confirm that the recommended ink tanks are installed properly MP800R / MP830


Replacing an ink tank When replacing the ink tanks, confirm that the new ink tanks are installed properly. If the ink tanks are not locked into place, paper may not be fed properly, or ink may not be supplied to the print head. Recommended Ink Tanks:
mp500_supported_inks.jpg
  1. Confirm that the printer is powered on and press the Open button. (The paper output tray will open.)

    mp500_openbutton.gif

  2. Lift the scanning unit (printer cover) completely. (The print head will move to the replacement position.)

    mp500_scanningunit_open.gif

    Note:
    When the scanning unit (printer cover) is opened more than ten minutes, the print head moves to the right side. If this occurs, close the scanning unit (printer cover), and open it again.


  3. Open the inner cover.

  4. Press on the tab to release the ink tank, then remove it from its slot. If you are replacing multiple ink tanks, make sure to replace one by one.

  5. Check the ink tank. If the orange tape is as shown in Figure <1>, it is properly removed. If the tape is not removed (as in figure <2>, pleease remove the extra tape).

  6. Insert the ink tanks into the print head.

    Note:
    Press the mark "PUSH" on the ink tank firmly until you hear a click.

    05sj00141_08_en.gif

  7. Ensure that all the ink tanks are installed properly and the ink tank lamps light red.

    05sj00141_09_en.jpg

    <7> The ink tanks are installed properly.
    <8> The ink tanks are not installed properly.

    Note:
    Ink Tank Lamp
    You can check the status of each ink tank according to the way its lamp flashes.

    • - On: The printer is ready to print.
    • - Slow flashing (at about three second interval): Ink is low. Prepare a new ink tank.
    • - Fast flashing (at about one second interval): Ink tank is empty, or the printer is not ready due to an error.
    • - Off: An error has occurred and the printer is not ready to print.

  8. Close the inner cover and the scanning unit (printer cover).

    Note:

    1. When closing the scanning unit (printer cover), be careful not to jam your finger.

    2. When starting printing next time, the print head cleaning launches automatically.

Getting "inner cover is open" message


The inner cover is a flap on the inside in front of the carriage when it is at rest when the cover us open. You had to flip the inner cover down to access the ink cartridges.
Open the cover. The inner cover is in the center and need to be flipped up.
Good luck.

Cartridge error


Dear customer,
According to Dell documentation, the Dell Personal Inkjet Printer J740 will display this error message if it detects a short circuit in one of its two ink cartridges. Solution:
To fix this problem, you’ll need to replace the faulty ink cartridge (it’s possible that both cartridges have a short circuit). First, press the Power button on the printer to turn it off and open its front cover. Turn the printer back on and wait for the ink cartridge to stop moving. Remove the color cartridge and close the front cover. If you receive the error message again, you’ll need to replace the black ink cartridge. Repeat this process for the color cartridge to test it for a short. If you continue to receive the error message, you’ll need to replace the color cartridge, too.

Please Rate this solution. Thank You..

Error is inner cover is open.


The "inner cover" can be seen if you open the paper output door, which you have to do to open the "printer cover" to get inside the machine and install the ink cartridges. The inner cover is a black bar right inside here. Push it up firmly enough , and it will snap up.

Regards,
Sai.
