I trying to install new cartridge. Printer keeps saying "out of ink"
I'm trying to replace the black cartridge. I put the new cartridge in and pushed the ink button to charge it. It didn't work. I can hear the ink sloshing around in the cartridge so I know its not dried up. I try doing the head cleaning on the maintenence and it won't do it because it says its out of ink.

Before installing a new toner, put a disposable towel over the ink toner exit, and shake your toner lightly back and forth and up and down. Make sure your toner cartridge is in the open position before replacing it in your printer.
If you are using a refillable ink cartridge, make sure you are resetting the cartridge using the method described by the refillable manufacturer.
If this does not answer your question please request more information before voting on my answer. I will try to find more information about your toner cartridge that will help you futher.
Look on the right side where the cartridge goes, if the spring on the right is hanging loose it might have poked a hole in the ribbon cable at the rear near the contacts. If so it's time for a new printer, if OK, check the exp. date on the ink cartridge and if it's been refilled or a generic ink you may just need another one.
The message that persists in saying to "replace black cartridge" could be due to a defective cartridge chip. The chip maintains counts and tells the printer when a new cartridge is installed. If you cartridge is remanufactured, they may have neglected to install a new chip.
Regarding the new fuser not working, I'll have to get back to you on that.
The printers are bad about damaging the ribbon cable inside the print cartridge when you replace the ink cartridge. There is a small wire spring that gets pushed through the cable rendering the printer useless. Poor design by HP. How do I know? I did it to mine. It's cheaper to buy a new one then to have it repaired.
It mean that the black cartridge is not recognised. It the black cart is original or compatible? Some printer won't recognise cartridge, if the black and colour is not same type. Try to install the black only. Is it recognised?

try to remove inks, then reseat it..
then remove printhead, by pushing the latch on the upper right, then put it back in. be sure that it will snap. close the door with no inks. try to look at the message, if it has the same error, put the inks on it and close the door again.. then if you still have the error message, call the hotline no. and I'm Afraid that you need a Printhead replacement or defective ink issue...
they will replace it for free..
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.
You could try taking out the new ink and putting in the old. Then uninstall the program, delete all reference to Epson in Regedit, then reinstall the program. Change the cartridge when prompted. Of course, having messed about with the jet, it may not work now !
