Dear,
either i could be a bad contact between the cartridge and the cartridge holder. try cleaning the copper contacts on both, using iso propyl liquids or surgical spirit. If at all u can , try opening the top cover and check flat cable connection in between the cartridge holder and the MLC. There might be a loose insertion, remove the cable and try inserting again. Else the problem could be there either with the cartridge or else on the MLC itself. Try gently, avoid damaging the plastic locks.

Take out the cartridge and rub the contacts gently on both the cartridge and the printer.
If this doen't work, pull out the power lead while the printer is still on and then plug it back in while holding OK and HELP keep holdig OK and HELP until the screen goes blank then release. Turn on the printer using the on button and this should clear any residual memory in the printer.
If this doesn't work then you have a faulty cartridge which needs replacing - sometimes you get a faulty cartridge but it is rare

I changed my cyan ink


That definitely sounds like the cartridge isn't registering properly. I would take the cartridge back to where you bought it and ask them to exchange it with a new one. This can happen from time to time.

If the printer was new out of the box, contact the manufacturer for a replacement cartridge. You can reach Brother here

Cyan ink cartridge is flashing, only prints in blue.


Hi cmwierson, I would suggest you update your printer drivers, try this, follow instructions exactly as written:

Create a new folder on your desktop and name it newhpdrivers(substitute your manufacturer in new name). Un-intall printer and printer software completely. Go to manufacturers website and navigate to their drivers/downloads or support menu. Select your model, choose the relevant software and download to the new folder you created on your desktop(watch for the light yellow bar at the top of window viewing pane, click on this and choose – download file - . Power down your computer. Reconnect the printer to the computer and turn printer on. Power on pc. Windows will detect new hardware and ask if you have the manufacturers install cd or a location to check for install files. Direct the wizard to your new software, follow the rest of the setup instructions and your done.

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.

Canon MP510 wont recognise cartridges


Using replacement cartridges that come without a chip seems to be the problem I had with the Canon Pixma 510 printer they are cheaper
but if they do not show the ink levels then its inconvienent so I have but Canon products with a chip and they work perfectly.

Cyan ink tank not recognised


I phoned Canon Tech Support Center this morning. They had me replace the ink tank giving me the U150 error code and are sending me a replacement tank. HOPEFULLY this will solve the problem.
