That should be simple. Either, the wrong version ink cartridge or you haven't changed the settings, to make the computer know you have put a new one in. You solve this by the software you have in your computer or some printers have a screen on them and you can do it from there as well.

If its the computer, open the software and click help and search "new cartridge" . it will help u from there.

Bought new cartridged, replaced the old one but the content is not getting printed


Hi,

Check the control panel for error indicators. The error light is to the left of the display and is marked "Error," it will illuminate. The error will appear on the screen and is in plain English, so very simple to interpret. An example is "Color or Black Ink Out," meaning there's no ink.

  • 2 Verify that the Epson Stylus CX3200 is connected to the printer with a cable. Try connecting without a USB hub while troubleshooting---that way you can identify if the problem is with the hub or printer. Replace the cable, it may be bad.
  • 3 Print a nozzle check pattern to determine the extent of the problem. The nozzle check will allow you to determine whether the printer will print at all, and the results will give you a good indication of print problems. Press the Menu button on the Control Panel until you see Nozzle Check and press the Color Copy button.
  • 4 Replace the printer cartridges if the Control Panel suggests you do so. Press the Menu button until you see "Change Cartridge" Press the Color Copy button and the cartridges will move to their change position. Lift the scanner and unclamp the cartridge. Replace the cartridge---color is on the right and black on the left. The Epson Stylus CX3200 will start charging the cartridge and after about thirty seconds the printer will be ready for use.

    I just put new cartridges in my printer, won't print


    “All lights blinking and printer not responding” is indicative of serious ink cartridge issue. Usually when this happens the printer fails to goes through the motions of the printing process, kind of stands still with indicator lights just blinking away. This could be as a result of either of these scenarios.
    i. Ink cartridge has developed incompatibility or is incompatible
    The Solution is to try an older/another cartridge (doesn’t matter if ink is finished. You must replace cartridge one at a time). If lights stop blinking it confirms that your cartridge has become incompatible or developed incompatibility. Also if your printer is the type that can work with only one cartridge, remove one after the other (closing back the lid/cover) to determine which in the set (black or color) has become incompatible. At the instance the incompatible one is removed and you close the lid, the blinking will stop (for printers that can print with one ink cartridge only). Just replace the incompatible one and start printing again. In most cases the issue is always with one cartridge. But if both are affected, you have to replace both. Because of this type of problem, always keep used cartridges somewhere safe; they come in handy for this type of troubleshooting.
    ii. The Cartridge electronic panel is dirty
    The electronic panel on the cartridge that makes contact with the cartridge carrier inside the printer is dirty and needs cleaning. This electronic panel is front part of the cartridge with copper “dots”.
    The Solution is to try to clean this panel with a piece of folded tissue paper soaked in a bit of methylated spirit. Also try to clean the area in the cartridge carrier/holder that makes contact with the cartridge’s electronic panel (Usually this is more difficult). If you cannot reach it with your fingers, use a stick or something with tissue wrapped around it. Allow to dry well and return the cartridges, close the cover. The blinking should stop if the electronic panel is the issue. Once the blinking stops the printer will print.

    4. Select the capacity of the new toner cartridge (1500 or 4500).
    5. Click OK.
    6. When the toner indicator on the control panel starts flashing, open the printer's front door. The carousel is automatically repositioned so that the appropriate toner cartridge can be removed.

    Changing color cartridge on my epson stylus color 980 printer.


    If you need to replace an ink cartridge in your printer, please follow the instructions below:

    To confirm which ink cartridge requires replacement, please use the printer's control panel (there is a black ink out indicator, as well as a color ink out indicator ), or the Status Monitor in your computer.

    Red light flashing - Low ink
    Red light solid - Out of ink

    1. Open the printer cover and press the INK (Cleaning) button for 3 seconds. The print head moves to the center and the lights flash.
    2. Lift up the ink cartridge clamp. The cartridge rises up from its holder.
    3. Remove the cartridge and dispose of it carefully. If ink gets on your hands, wash them with soap and water. If ink gets in your eyes, flush them immediately with water.
    4. Unpack the new ink cartridge and remove the yellow tape. You must remove the yellow tape from the top of the cartridge. Do not remove the clear seal underneath the cartridge. Do not touch the green circuit board on the back of the cartridge, or you may inhibit normal operation and printing.
    5. Tilt the new cartridge toward you slightly as you insert it. Lower the cartridge so that the tabs rest on the hooks. Do not place the cartridge tabs under the hooks.
    6. Press down firmly on the ink cartridge clamp until it snaps in place.
    7. If you need to replace the other ink cartridge, repeat steps 2 through 6 before continuing with step 8 (to move printhead over to color (if black was replaced first) press the cleaning button once).
    8. Press the INK (Cleaning) button once, and close the printer cover. The printer begins charging the ink delivery system.
    9. Wait until ink charging is finished (the power light stops flashing and the red error light goes out).

    Dell printer model# A940 50c error


    Test your cartridges.

    Remove the color ink cartridge then lower the cover of your printer. If the error message displays again, replace the black cartridge with a new one (or return the new one). Reinstall the color cartridge and remove the black ink cartridge then lower the cover. If the error message displays again, replace the color cartridge with a new color cartridge.
    Note: My manual indicated that the printer might have detected a short circuit in a cartridge. I returned a month old black cartridge got a new one and my printer is working fine now. Good luck.

    HP DESKJET 1180C


    HP Deskjet 1180c and1220c Professional Series Printer and HP Deskjet 9300 and 1280 Printer - Troubleshooting a Blinking Print Cartridge Light Introduction The Print Cartridge light continues to blink with both cartridges properly installed and the Access Cover (also known as the top cover or lid) closed. Instructions The blinking Print Cartridge light may be caused by a faulty cartridge, the plastic case of the printer being dislodged or slightly out of position (which prevents the Access Cover from seating properly), the Access Cover sensor (also known as the top cover sensor or lid sensor), or by the actuator on the Access Cover. Follow the steps below to resolve the issue.
    1. With the printer turned on, open the Access Cover. The carriage will move out of the capping station and stop at one of the cartridge status icons located inside the printer under the Access Cover. The yellow arrow on top of the carriage will point to one of the cartridge status icons to indicate a good, empty, or faulty cartridge. See Figure 1 below.
      1. If the carriage stops in the cartridge’s OK position, indicated by the happy face in Figure 1, continue with Step 2.
      2. If a problem is indicated with one of the cartridges, remove the cartridge and verify that the cartridge part number is correct. The black cartridge part number is 51645A and the color cartridge part number is C6578A or C6578D.
      3. If the cartridge part number is correct, clean the electrical contacts on the cartridge with a soft, lint-free cloth. Do not touch or wipe the nozzle plate.
      4. If a faulty cartridge is still indicated after verifying the cartridge part number and cleaning the contacts on the cartridge, replace the cartridge.
      5. After replacing the cartridge, turn off and then turn on the printer to clear the cartridge error from the printer's memory. If the cartridge error cannot be cleared, the printer will require repair. If the carriage stops in the cartridge’s OK position, indicated by the happy-face in Figure 1, continue with Step 2. NOTE: The printer checks the status of both print cartridges before printing. Both the black and color cartridge must be functional and installed in the printer in order to print.
      Figure 1: Cartridge status icons c00001225.jpg Icon/Drawing Problem identified by the symbol Solution c00001226.jpg The color cartridge is missing, improperly installed, defective, or the wrong print cartridge is installed. 1. If there is no color cartridge in the cartridge cradle, insert a color cartridge.

      2. If there is a color cartridge in the cradle, remove the color cartridge and firmly reinsert it.

      3. Check to make sure the color cartridge is appropriate for the printer.

      4. If the problem persists, replace the color cartridge. c00001227.jpg The black cartridge is missing, improperly installed, the wrong print cartridge, or is defective. 1. If there is no black cartridge in the cartridge cradle, insert a black cartridge.

      2. If there is a black cartridge in the cradle, remove the black cartridge and firmly reinsert it.

      3. Check to make sure the black cartridge is appropriate for the printer.

      4. If the problem persists, replace the black cartridge. c00001228.jpg The color print cartridge is running low on ink. Replace the color print cartridge with a new color print cartridge. c00001229.jpg The black print cartridge is running low on ink. Replace the black print cartridge with a new black print cartridge. c00001230.jpg None. The print cartridges are working correctly. None. The print cartridges are working correctly.
    2. Close the Access Cover and wait for the printer to initialize. If the Print Cartridge light is still blinking, remove the Access Cover by following the steps below:
      1. Open the Access Cover and hold it open.
      2. Dislodge the Access Cover from the hinges with a sharp blow to the hinge area of the Access Cover and then remove the Access Cover.
    3. Install the Access Cover by following the steps below:
      1. Align the hinges on the Access Cover with the hinge pins on the printer.
      2. Push down firmly on the Access Cover until the hinges snap into position.
    4. Close the top cover and wait for the printer to initialize. If the Print Cartridge light is still blinking, the printer case may be dislodged or slightly out of position. To restore the printer case to the proper position, squeeze the printer by applying pressure to the front and back pressure points shown in Figure 2. Figure 2: Pressure points c00006497.jpg Firmly squeeze the pressure points on the printer case as shown in Figure 3. If the Print Cartridge light continues to blink, continue with step 5. Figure 3: Squeezing the pressure points c00006498.jpg
    5. If the Print Cartridge light is still blinking, push down firmly on the center of the Access Cover (the extra pressure may engage the sensor). If the Print Cartridge light quits blinking, remove the pressure from the Access Cover to see if the Print Cartridge light starts blinking again. Re-apply the pressure to the center of the Access Cover to see if the Print Cartridge light stops blinking again.
      1. If the Print Cartridge light quits blinking with pressure applied, the Access Cover is faulty and should be replaced.
      2. If the Print Cartridge light continues to blink even with pressure applied, the Access Cover sensor may be faulty and the printer will require repair.
