    Although I have replaced the yellow ink cartridge, removed it several times & reinserted it, I continue to get a message that says the yellow ink cartridge needs to be replaced. As a consequence, none of the functions work.

    I have refilled the cartridges but the printer will not print

    Each time the ink is slightly below full, the machine stops working entirely and insists the ink is empty. Cost us a lot - fax won't work, nothing will work - we're throwing away nearly full ink cartridges. We've followed the steps to re-set, and it won't re-set. Awful machine.

A1: close scanner (this is NO error!)

Take carts out and reinsert. Make sure they are secured. Watch display and give answer (Cart changed? 1: YES).

IP4300 only recognizes magenta OR cyan


1. Get compressed air
2. Run Printhead under HOT water, do not worry about contacts getting slightly wet.

3. Blow compressed air with straw attachment into screens where the cartridge nozzle sits on printhead. then let it sit and dry.

4. reinstall print test page

5. if this fails open paint/photoshop and print a page of the color that is not printing correctly. rinse and repeat until colors flow freely.

I have several ip4300s and I have yet to give up the ghost on a printer with a clog ujsing this method.

Try unplugging the printer for about ten to fifteen seconds; then replug.

This may clear the printer's memory about the low magenta. I had a similar thing with yellow, and when I replugged it stopped complaining about the yellow and told me that my cyan was out, and magenta low. I replaced the cyan, and voila! I can print!
