Hope this help. PLease rate my response.
have a good day.
you do not have to take the whole printer to the shop to fill the ink cartrage if you have the manuel to the printer it should tell you how to remove the ink cartrage and replace it with a new one and also they may have a refill kit at one of your local computer stores or where they sell ink and they should be able to tell you how to get the ink cartrage out to replace it
The printer working does not depend on
its cartrage... Cartrage is just like ink in
ur pen... If the nib of ur pen breaks
then u cant blame on ink... Check
whether the gare of ur printer moves if
its nt then there is some problem in
gare shifting ic or the rotator machine
check it by giving it to some computer
first try taking out the cartrage and try uninstalling the printer off your computer then reinstalling it. before putting in your cartrage make sure your computer detects it and your computer should tell you that it detcets no ink then try replacing it. if the problem consists make sure youave the right cartgae for that printer. Then check that nothing (paper, pen, anything) is stuck or jamming the computer blocking the cartage sensors,
