When you have replaced the INK cartridge it was necessary to do it with the correct method. I think that the procedure doen was faulty and so it would have reset the software to detect a blank ink pot. So now we must remove off the printer and then uninstall the printer software, Reinstall then the given printer software . After completion of the installation plug in the printer.
now the printer will be detected as a new hardware and will install into the sytem. your printer is now ready and compatable. Now the INk must display correct. Try a test print or use a cleaning on the head before.
If the priner does not print, it ispossible that the head is faulty,maybe when the ink dried out.
hope this helps.

THE PAPER COMES OUT BLANK WITHOUT PRINTING.


Make sure you remove the protective tape from cartridge(s). If it's been removed, try running 'nozzle clean' or 'deep clean' (for that cartridge). You can find this in 'Printer properties' on 'Maintenance' page.

When fax comes through paper is blank. I've tried 2 different cartridges


Replace the print cartridge
When you notice that the print becomes light or ink low or when install new ink
cartridge appears in the display, replace the print cartridge. The part number for
replacement cartridges is HP 701.
1. Take out a cartridge from its packaging and carefully remove the tape covering the
printhead.
Hold the cartridge by the colored top or black areas only. Do not touch the copper
area.
2. Press the Access Cartridge button on the control panel.
The cartridge carrier moves to the install position.

3. Open the control panel and cartridge compartment cover (it will click and remain
open).
4. Push the cartridge down and remove it.
5. To load the cartridge insert the cartridge as shown below. When the cartridge is
pushed to the back of the cartridge carrier, push the top of the cartridge until it clicks
into place.
If the cartridge moves loosely in the carrier, it has not clicked into place. Repeat this
step.

6. Close the cartridge compartment cover and control panel.

8. Press 1 for new cartridge, or 2 for the old one.
• When you put in a new cartridge, you must choose 1:New
• When you put in a used cartridge, choose 2:Used. This helps you to check the
correct amount of ink you have left.
TIP: If you mix up several used cartridges, it is not possible to check the correct amount
of remaining ink. Once you have put in a new cartridge, use it until it is completely
exhausted.

Hi! The printer does not print colors or black. I have full new inks, an i have cleaned it many times, but it does not give any viewable text.


Hi, this is a very common problem when you leave the printer without use for many months . To fix that, you have to take your printer to a custom Technical Service and ask for a simple head cleaning. It'll be a cheap work.
_OR_
If you want to do it for yourself, get some Isoprophilic Alcohol (also, you can get Deionized Water) and follow the next steps:
1- With a syringe (one for color), remove all the ink of your cartridges.
2- Put that ink on different recipients and save it for later. 3- With a new syringe, put the isoprophilic alcohol in the cartridges. 4- Leave the cartridges all night. 5- Put the cartridges back on the printer and turn it on. 6- "Print" as many pages you can. This'll make the isoprophilic alcohol pass through the printer's head and make it "believe" is printing normally. 7- When you're done, remove the isoprophilic alcohol of the cartridges and put the ink back on the cartridges. 8- Put the cartridges back on the printer and start printing. This prints will be desaturated or blank. 9- Keep doing it until the printer is working correctly.
This is what they're gonna do at the technical service. You choose what to do.
Hope to help you.

I have a Dell 926 All-In-One InkJet Printer, I put a new black ink cartridge in the printer; still have plenty of color ink. When I have a document that I want to print from Word, it will sound like its...


Make sure you've removed the shipping tape from the cartridge's print head. More than likely the black cartridge is not disbursing ink - clean the print head carefully with "Q" tip and alcohol and see if black ink comes out slightly. Re-insert cartridge and try again. Perform "clean cartridge" in printer properties window.

Will not print annymore


Thomas You need to get yourself a pint bottle or even two pints of ink solvent and a syringe and spray it into the print heads where you removed the ink cartridges and let it set about two hours. don't be conservative with the solvent. Please read the manual for your printer and after you run the printer through several cycles you will see the differences put the old cartridges in the trash and install new cartridges. this can be prevented if you run the printer through its self test and run clean print head cycles.
NOTE: put paper towels in the bottom of the printer so as to not make to big a mess

MY X1240 will not print the text .


Did you run test page AFTER new cartridges installation?
Please print text from different programs: Noterpad, Wordpad, Office word, excell, Browser etc..
If you see text in some other program check settings in "text not printing" program : MSWord has a setting in Options blocking texts.
If you never see a text, check "Printer Preferences.." different from "Printer Properties.."
Let we know if fixed by scoring this solution or tell us results for any further support.

The ink is dry.

Try repeatly going through a cleaning cycle.

Afterwards, go through a few more cleaning cycle.
Make sure you have spare ink.
