I bought a new HP OfficeJet Pro and it said to replace the "magenta ink cartridge". I bought a new HP cartridge and it still says the same thing!


Hello, This could be a little tough, because the printer is suppose to recognize when the toner has been changed. I see that this has not happened.

Steps 1) You should make sure the toner is firmly seated into the printer.
2) Compare all the printer electrical contacts against one of the known good toners.
3) You could try and force the printer calibration,

*** do not tip the toner on end ***

1 Press to enter the MENUS.

2 Press to highlight CONFIGURE DEVICE.

3 Press to select CONFIGURE DEVICE.

4 Press to highlight PRINT QUALITY.

5 Press to select PRINT QUALITY.

6 Press to highlight CALIBRATE NOW.

7 Press to select CALIBRATE NOW.

8 Wait for the printer to calibrate.


If none of the above tips resolve your issue, you may have to have the printer serviced.

Printer shows no cartage found


Connect the printer power cord to the Wall Outlet or Wall Jack.
Make sure it is not connected to the Serge Protector or power strip.

Partial reset :-

Now on the printer itself. --> Press and hold the
# and 3 button at the same time. Now take out the Power cable from the back of the printer and wait for 20 sec. Now put the power cable back in the printer. Now release the two buttons. ( Note :- remember you need to hold down the # and 3 button the hold time )

(On the printer screen it should say Part nvm reset.)

Now try to turn on the printer and check. If it works Perfect. If not then do this :-

Semi-Full Reset:-

Open the front door and take out all the cartridges from the printer. Now close the door.

Now on the printer itself. --> Press and hold the
# and 6 button at the same time. Now take out the Power cable from the back of the printer and wait for 20 sec. Now put the power cable back in the printer. Now release the two buttons. ( Note :- remember you need to hold down the # and 6 button the hold time )

( On the printer screen it should say Semi-Full rest )

The printer might shut down automatically or may be it won't. At this point Put the cartridges back into the printer and then turn on the printer if it was shut down.
or If the printer is on turn it off and then switch it back on.

The problem should be resolved up till now.

If still the problem Exist Call HP as the product has gone bad.

Can't stop the printer calibrating


No guarantee this will fix your problem, but the last time I experienced this problem it ended up being one of the toner cartridges. I replace her refurb. toners to OEM brand.

Kodak ESP3 verses Windows Vista!


I have a suggestion that might work.
Is your User Account Control turned on? If it is, try turning it off,reboot, and try to reinstall your drivers.
This feature of Vista is notorious for blocking new drivers. It was so bothersome to me that I leave it turned off permanently.

User Account Control can be accessed through Control Panel/Security Center.
