    I am also having the same problem. I purchased my new 5100 Printer a few weeks ago and it won't print. I am able to print in color, but not black and white. I have downloaded the lastest software, calibrated and cleaned the heads, but still have the same problem. I have only done 8-10 calibrations and it is already telling me to replace my color cartridge.

    I am beginning to wonder if I made a mistake purchasing this piece of

    junk !!!!!!!! I am not happy.

I have a kodak 5100 it worked fine until I changed the black ink then it would only print 1 line called kodak yesterday at 9 am and they said they would send new printer head and new ink..it arrived this am and now printer is working fine. I think they know there is a big problem and need to do a recall.Did not think they would act so fast but they did.

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 put in a new black cartridge, but the blinking light (left most) continues to blick and I cannot print. Any suggestions? How do I reset the printer to aknowledge the cartridge?


Try to reset the entire PC and printer then turn it on again and try to delete the files in the printer memory then restart to clean all the files stored in the printer. Try to print it now.

Forgive me for asking this, but roughly speaking about 80 to 95% of problems involving ink or toner are resolved by the following:
Are you using a factory new ink cartridge supplied by the manufacturer of the printer?
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
If you are using the manufacturer’s new ink cartridges, then please contact their technical support group. Factory new cartridges usually have warranties on them.

Replaced black ink cartridge and printer keeps asking to replace


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.

Ink Cartridge Error


on your cartridges there is a chip that detects if the ink is low. The chip on your yellow cartridge is bad. You should return the cartridge for a new one(if you still have your receipt) or visit a Cartridge World in your area and they can put a new chip on for you

Ink in hp photosmart 3310


Hi,
the printer should have software installed enabling you to opt, for a printer-ink cartridge change.
If the cartridge has a chip fitted, it may be discharged.
The chip is supposed to be charged up, for the printer to recognise the newly installed cartridge.
view your settings in control panel/printer/properties to see what options you have available.

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.

You should install driver first, then connect printer when prompted, then install inks, as it needs the driver to tell it there are full inks fitted, refer to the manual.
