HEY, THE PROBLEM IS WITH THE PRINT HEAD AND NOT WITH CARTRIDGE.
The nozzles have blocked due to which the print quality is dim.
Your machine requires a service and cleaning the print head and components will do the job for you.





Thanks

Ink cartrige cannot be recognised


make sure you've taken the protective tape off the cartrige. Usually its orange and noticeable.

Sometimes generic cartriges have a small chip and a registration that allows the printer to talk between the cartrige from what I under stand maybe ink levels and to protect profits on not allowing generic companies to make a more economical product competitively

the printer can sometimes be power cycled to allow it to accept the generic cartrige.
there are normally settings on a printer to see if you can change the internal settings can be altered to allow non Original Electronic Manufacturors products in a Canon Printer.

make sure that the type of printer you have is compatible with the printer. the computer may require a black cartridge or a color cartrige in a very specific location. they might not be allowed to be switched.
make sure the cartrige can slide in and out of it's slot comfortably.

FOR office printers. there are also protective tabs holding the ink in the cartrige. this side tab on the cartrige is there for shipping. these are normally on large 30 pound printers. top front loading Office printers. the tab needs to be turned hard and swift either clockwise or counter clockwise if you can't cleaning pull it out. Also remember your boss paid a lot for that cartrige dont break something your not comfortable breaking. be warned in advance this dry ink will spill and is hard to clean and harder to clean from clothing.



as per a fast solution a smaller printer and certainly a cartrige can actually be brought into a computer and electronics store whilst looking to buy a new print cartrige. Make sure if you do bring a piece of your own electronics into a store you check in with security. let them know its yours; wave it in front of a camera if youd like.
the seller normally should be able to recognize if their product will fit in your device it will save both of you time and inconvience.
cartriges cost about the same as a new printer with new ink.
dont be afriad to buy an extra ink at the time of purchase and risk letting it dry but having the back up that you know works-
you'll have a package for the next time you need a new cartidge. gives you more research material.
accept moores law
feel good about flossing on a new printer.
print some pictures and frame them-
pictures are some of the most important thing in our lives! Smile!

Refill cartrige and printer says replace cartrige


A lot of printer manufactures place a small chip on the ink cartridge. Combined with the printer software it knows you re-filled the cartridge. This forces you to buy new ink. A work around that works with some printers. Keep you're old ink cartridges. Replace with new and when it empties replace with you're re-filled ink cartridge. Store you're old re-filled cartridges in a dry cool place when not in use. With HP printers users keep three cartridges.

Good luck.

Wont print it prints but no print comes out ink is ok


1st try to clean heads (printer cleaning function)
2nd see if any fresh ink droped on ink basket (inside right/left position.(normaly wrong ink density as non original ink cartriges, have 2 situations: ink too light as low quality ink, drops to much ink on ink basket, and flod and detiorate all metalics parts inside.
Or too heavy, and no ink will pass on print head holes).
3rd u can have the print heads, burnout (u can test on diagnostics tools on printers software), or send for repair, for local repair shop.

I'd like to refill the ink cartridge on my Philips


Yes, some have a chip on the cartrige unit, they cannot be reset.
Buy a new unit.
Sometimes using competitve ink in this machine can cause other problems.
The copies are light with background and with streaks, also sometimes the toner might be spilling below the developer housing or copy cartrige unit.
Good luck

The printer do not recognize the new replacement cartrige


I have many epson printer, some more than 5 years old. It's ok. some have printed more than 50.000pages, it's ok.
If Ink cartridge Unrecognizable, there are two posibilities : Chip Error at ink tank, or printer error. For chip error, try to plug the ink tank to another printer (same type). If the ink tank recognized by other printer, so the problem is printer.
So ;
1. Check chip conector at head carriage.
2. Check the wiring of the head, and chip.
If two point above is ok, the last action is check the power supply and board. It may be epprom is damage.

In use/memory light


You can delete docs held in memory by going to Menu, View docs in memory, scroll down to delete. This makes the light turn off. My fax stopped taking faxes while I was away because this memory held too many docs and my ink was low. Very inconvenient.

No black ink print. Prints in light blue


Cartriges have a shelf life. It's printing in blue either because it has dried up or is out. Different cartriges have different timelines but if you haven't been using the printer often, it could have dried up or is simply out of ink. I would suggest first to try cleaning the head of the cartrige where the ink comes out with alcohol and a Q-tip and then if that doesn't work, buying a new black cartrige.

It seems there's something wrong with the cartridge connector. Try cleaning with a soft cotton cloth soaked with alchohol or After Shave and check for the ribbon connecting the head for possible damage or cut.
