Epson stylus photo R200 status monitor in Windows 7 is'nt highlighted ink is low can't tell which ones


Uninstall the current driver and Status Monitor, once uninstalled connect and power the printer on to install the Windows 7 In box driver. If that does not work then you can tell which cartridges need replacing using the printer itself. Lift the lid and press the red ink button once. The carriage will move to the left and stop by a pointer. This will point to the cartridge that needs replacing. Repeat until it is in the change and then change the indicated cartridge/s and then press again to complete the change.

I changed the USB port that the printer was connected to and... VOILA...works like a charm with the new cartridges installed. Not sure what the problem was as windows recognized the printer and the drivers were correctly installed before the new cartridges even came into the picture.

  1. On your computer, go to "Start," "Programs," "Lexmark Series." Click "Lexmark Control Program."
  2. Step 2 Select the "Cartridges" tab. Click "Change Cartridges." The Change Cartridges screen appears, displaying the animated instructions for installing or changing cartridges. When you have finished viewing the animation, click the "Finished" button.
  3. Step 3 Remove the tape covering the print head of the new print cartridge. Insert the new print cartridge as shown in the animation.
  4. Step 4 When the "Choose Cartridges" screen appears, select the cartridge(s) you installed in your printer from the list boxes. Click the appropriate box to reset the ink levels to full. Click "OK."
  5. Step 5 The Automatic Alignment screen appears. Click "Align" to align the print cartridges for best print quality. The printer prints a page with a bi-directional alignment pattern. On the printed test page, locate the number that comes closest to forming a straight line under the bi-directional alignment pattern. Enter that number as the bi-directional alignment setting in the Alignment Cartridge dialog box. Click "OK."

My lexmark x6690 wont print after i refilled the cartridges,it tells me the cartridges needs re placement,how can i overide this ?


if you are using cartridges number 36 and 37 (or 14,15/ 23,24/ 28,29/ 41,42), you can only override it by buying new cartridges. But they need to have a letter A after the number, i.e. 36A and 37A- those cartridges can be refilled, the ones you get with the printer can't. They are, as Lexmark calls them, "return program cartridges", which means they can be used only once. "Return program" means you can send them back to Lexmark and they will refill them for you (not sure if that is true, but that's what Lexmark says on their website)

Hope that helps!

Lexmark X2530 won't accept re-inking of cartridges


This is a trick that is used on some of the HP printers. Try this, you will need at least 3 maybe 4 cartridges. The printer stores the chip ID in memory for the last 2 or 3 cartridges installed, so, take an old cartridge number 1 and install in the printer, reset power. Next step, take old cartridge 1 out and install old cartridge 2 in, let it come to ready or tell you to replace empty, then install your refilled cartridge. You just have to remove from its memory the chip ID of the refilled cartridge. You can fool it by doing this each time you refill. Can't guarantee this will work with lexmark, but it does work with HP.
Hope this helps,

Region settings for HP Photosmart D7160


You can try this, but I still thing you need HP tech support to tell you which numbers you should enter, because they vary from printer to printer.
  1. You should have your printer connected to a windows PC with a USB cable even if it is a network printer.
  2. Press * and # keys to bring up the "Mfg Commands" screen. I assume this is only used by HP service staff.
  3. The "Mfg Commands" screen asks you to "Enter special key combo" which is 123 then press ok.
  4. Use the right arrow key to step through the menus until you find the "Special Reports" menu then press ok.
  5. Use the right arrow key again to find the "Print Cartridges" menu and press ok
  6. This will print out a page with numbers ranging from 11. to 74. This page will print regardless of the print cartridges in the printer and whether they are valid print cartridges.
  7. The numbers of interest to HP support will be 11,21,25,52,62
  8. They will use the above information to generate a new set of five lots of 4 numbers.
  9. You will need to enter the 5 lots of 4 numbers onto a windows PC which has the HP drivers installed.
  10. On a windows PC with HP drivers installed open notepad and select print to bring up the printer dialog .
  11. Click on "preferences" in the print dialog window to open the HP preferences dialogue.
  12. Holding down the control key double click the HP icon in the bottom left corner of the preferences dialogue to open a service maintenance menu which will allow you to enter 5 lots of 4 digit numbers which HP staff will provide.
  13. Once you have entered the 5 lots of 4 numbers and press ok a data file is sent to the printer which changes its region settings.
  14. You then have to switch the printer off for about 1 minute then back on again and your new cartridges should now be valid.
Or try this, but I'm not sure if it works:
  1. press *# together
  2. press 127
  3. change from user to mfg mode
  4. shut down restart
  5. press power button after a graphic screen
  6. see rainbow screen
  7. press power button again

Dell A960 cartridge problem


Does the black cartridge print? If not did you take the tape off of it? Error 50 is a generalized error reading relating to a number of cartridge problems. If the color cartridge is empty, it may be theproblem although I have not found this to be true on Dell printers. If you remove the color cartridge and reinstall it the reading will indicate its full (even though it isn't. This may solve the problem.
