I want to use Black ink only but it will not print because the colors are empty. Do I need to replace all cartridges (LC61) for Brothers print, copy, fax machine. Thanks


If you don't want to replace the color cartridges, you can fool the printer instead. Sensors in the printer shine light through a thin area on the cartridges. The empty (or even just low, even though there may be plenty of ink still inside) cartridges allow the light to get through, the printer sees the empty cartridges, and it won't print anymore. You can cover this part of the cartridge with a piece of black electrical tape to block the light. Voila! No light gets through and the printer thinks you have full cartridges again. This site has pictures showing where to put the tape. I've used this trick on the printer we have here in our office and it works great.

Having trouble fitting new ink cartridge


Hi, when an ink cartridge runs low in your HP Officejet 5610 All-in-One printer, you will see a message on the printer's display screen. Faded-looking text or pictures also indicate low ink. Ensure print quality by replacing ink cartridges when they run low.

Instructions

Things You'll Need:

* HP #27 or #56 black, #22 color or #58 color photo print cartridge, or compatible equivalent



Turn printer on if it is off. Never attempt to change the ink cartridge if the printer is off. If it is off, it will not properly position or release ink cartridges, and attempting to change the ink cartridges may damage the printer.


Open the print-carriage door, located on the right side of the printer. The print carriage will automatically move into the access area.

Push down on the top edge of the cartridge you are replacing to pop it out of its slot. Remove the print cartridge and discard or recycle.


Pull off the protective tape on the new print cartridge using the pink tab. Do not touch any part of the cartridge except the black plastic. Touching the contacts or ink nozzles under the protective tape can damage the cartridge and result in poor print quality.


Hold the cartridge upright and push gently forward into the empty ink cartridge slot until it clicks.


Close the print-carriage door.

Cant figure out how to put in the ink cartridges


Hi there,
Procedure for replacing Cartridge
When FIne Cartridges run out of ink, replace them. using the following steps.

*Important
Handling Fine Cartridges
-Once the protective tape is removed, do not touch the electrical contacts or Print Head Nozzles on a FINE Cartridge. The printer may not print out properly if you touch it.
-To maintain optimal printing quality, we recommendthe use of specified Canon brand FINE Cartridges.
Refilling is not recommended.
-Once you remove a FINE Cartridge, replace it immediately. Do not leave the printer with the FINE Cartridge removed.
-Replace empty cartridges with new ones. If you insert FINE Cartidges that has been removed once, the printer may not print properly due to some reasons such as clogging of the nozzles. Furthermore, with such cartridges, tlhe Low ink warning may not be displayed properly.
-Once a FINE cartridge is installed, do not remove it from the printer and leave it out in the open. This will cause the FINE Cartridge to dry out., and the printer may not operate properly when it is reinstalled. To maintain optimal print quality, use a FINE Cartridge within 6 months of first use.
-Color ink may be consumed even when printing a black and white document or when black and white printing is specified.
Color ink is also consumed in Print Head Cleaning and Print Head Deep Cleaning, which may be necessary to maintain the printer's performance.

1) Make sure that the printer is on, and then open the Front Cover.
The FINE cartridge Holder move to the left.
Cautuion : * Do not hold the FINE cartridge Holder to stop or move it.
* Do not touch the metallic parts inside the printer.
Important : If the Front Cover is left open for more than 10 minutes, the FINE Cartridge Holder moves to the right. Close and reopen the Front Cover to return the holder to the left.

2) Remove the empty FINE Cartridge.
a) Push down the FINE Cartridge.
b) Remove the FINE Cartridge.
Important: - Handle FINE Cartridge carefully to avoid staining your clothes or surrounding area.
-Discard empty FINE Cartridges according to the local laws and regulations regarding disposal of consumables.

3) Prepare the replacement cartridge.

Important : - Handle FINE cartridge carefully to avoid staining your clothes or surrounding area.
- do not re-attach the protective tape once you have removed. Discard it according to the locals laws and regulations regarding disposal of consumables.
-once the protective tape is removed , to not touch the electrical contacts or Print Head Nozzles on a fine cartridge. The printer may not print out properly if you touch it.
-Be careful not to stain your clothes and hands with the ink on the removed protective tape/

4) Install the FINE Cartridges.
a) Insert a new FINE Cartridge all the way into the appropriate slot. The Black FINE Cartridge should be installed into the left slot and the Color FINE Cartrige should be into the right slot.
b) Push up the FINE Cartridges until it clicks into the place.
Important : The printer cannot be used unless both the FINE Cartridges are installed.

5) Close the Front Cover.

Hope this helps. Please rate my response.
Thanks,
Have a good day.

The cyan and magenta cartidges have run out but I cannot print in black only, since a staus window appears telling me to replace cartridge the cyan and magenta and will not let me continue to print in...


You can't print in black only mode because printer need all cartridges not empty to initialized and working.Don't try to refill this cartridges, it's have a chip and you need to reset it too.Just look in your are for non OEM ink cartridges.Thea are 2-3 times cheaper.

My printer will not work if one of inks is out and will not have otion for black only


This is a known problem with this printer, functions such as fax and copy will also be unavailable if the ink is low.

The low ink alert will appear even though the cartridge is not empty.

Here is the solution:

The ink cartridge has a sensor on the bottom, between the nozzles.
cut a small piece of tape and tape over the sensor.
The printer will now think the cartridge is full.

This will allow you to use every function of the printer regardless of how much ink you have. The cartridge will truly be empty when your print outs come out blank.

Epson CX7450 Black Ink Won't Work...


I was having the same problem. This fixed it:

Lift up the scanner bed (top part) of the printer to expose the cartridges.

Push the red triangle button once. Wait for the cartridge carrier to move to the middle. On the housing of the printer (the non-moving part), there is an arrow that will point to the empty cartridge.

Push the red triangle button again to see if the next cartridge is empty. Repeat this step, noting which cartridges are empty, until the cartridge carrier moves to the right. Now you can replace each cartridge that is empty.

After replacing the empty cartridges, push the red triangle button again, and the carrier will begin moving back and forth (cleaning itself). Once it stops, it should be positioned on the far right side.

Lower the scanner bed to "close" the printer. The ink light should go off and you should be able to print.

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.
