Hi,
Try cleaning electrical contacts:
Use cotton wool and alcohol and clean electrical contacts on back of cartridge and where they make contact inside printer.

Then install print head and inks and test.

Good Luck

My printer keeps telling me "print cartridge


Hello,
Maybe the contacts where the cartridge sits are dirty. What you can do is remove both cartridges and turn the printer off, pulling the power cable out so that the cartridge holder remain in the change position and you can see it. Then clean the gold contacts with a piece of cotton fabric soaked with medical alcohol. Left the printer turned off for 10-15 minutes so that the contacts become dry. Then turn it on and reinstall the cartridges. This might help.

The printer keeps telling me to replace cartridgeage. I put a new one in and one i refilled . It keeps telling to replace the cartridgeage.


It would help us to know who manufactured the printer and its MODEL number because they vary in how to get the cartridges accepted by the printer.

If you have not done so, you can remove the cartridges and wipe the electrical contacts clean - careful the ink can really stain - then put the cartridges back in and make sure they are clamped in well. If that does not work then remove them and see if you can also clean the contacts inside the cartridge holder. Use a small rag and wipe it lightly with the power to the printer OFF.

Thanks for asking -.........................Pete

I have a cartridge problem. I have lifted the scanner unit until scanner support keeps opwn. Removed both cartridges, cleaned them, put back into unit, but I still get error message 50c. Can you help.


Your print cartridge has shorted.

  1. Power off your All-in-One and unplug it.

  2. Plug in your All-in-One again and turn it on.

  3. Uninstall and then reinstall your cartridges.

  4. If this does not resolve the issue, try the troubleshooting steps for the other cartridge errors below.

How to open printer to change cartridge?


In order to replace the cartriage, please follow the steps below:
1 Keep the printer on.
2 Lift the printer (scanner unit) until the scanner support keeps it open.
The ink cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position unless the printer is
busy.
3 Squeeze the tabs on the cartridge lids, and then lift the lids.
4 Remove the old cartridges.
5 If you are installing new cartridges, remove the stickers and tape from the bottom of
the cartridges.
6 Insert the new cartridges. Make sure the color ink cartridge is secure in the left carrier
and the black cartridge is secure in the right carrier, and then snap the lids closed.
7 Lift the printer (scanner unit) and push the scanner support back while lowering the
printer (scanner unit) until it is closed.

Put new cartridge in but error light keeps coming on even after reboot how do i fix this?


Remove the cartridge and put it in again.
If it has a reset button, push that.
If you have "refilled" your cartridge the answers will be different. Did you?

Hp PSC 950 gives me a message to remove and check black cartridge


Did you remove the tape from the contacts of the new black cartridge? If so once the new one is in, unplug the printer from power and power it back on, it should do a full check after a power on off.

Ink cartridge light keeps blinking


you need to print only in black if that is all the ink you have, and also you need to remove the color cartridge as it still registers in the printer as able to be used, although it is empty or near so. Did you remove the tape over the print head fron the new ink cartridge? Do a print head alignment, or use the toolbox icon to tell the printer that you just replaced the cartridge. Some HP models chip the ink cartridges so even a refill wont register as a full tank and the printer wont print. chip needs to be reset (difficult) or just replaced with a new cartridge.
