You could try removing them and cleaning the metal parts on the bottom with alcohol and a q-tip.

I don't know if there IS a way to tell how much ink is left in them, that's my problem at the present. Mine have been in there a long time so they my possibly be dried up or empty.

Light keeps flashing


The flashing light could indicate either a communication problem between one of your cartridges and the printer, a short in one of the cartridges, paper jam or the cartridge carrier has stalled. Please follow the steps below to fix the problem:

  1. Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder. Make sure there are no foreign objects or debris in the feeder.
  2. Open the printer cover and remove both the cartridges.
  3. While the cover is open, ensure there are no paper jams and the cartridge carrier is free from obstructions.
  4. Close the printer cover.
  5. Re-brick your printer. Pull out the power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds.
  6. When the printer turns on, reinsert one cartridge first.
  7. Close the printer cover and check the light status.
  8. If light on printer is normal, open the printer cover and reinsert the other cartridge. Check the light status.
  9. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the light to flash with a new cartridge. You can also try to insert a different known working cartridge to determine if the other is faulty.
  10. Load some paper. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

Orange cartridge keeps flashing after cartridge


Are you using a factory new HP ink cartridge?
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
Also take a moment and make sure that all of the protective tape coverings have been removed from the cartridge.

Remove and check cartridge keeps flashing, wont stop flashing, even after in remove cartriges and replace them


I've found out what was wrong. My cartridges expired. HP has put a "limit" on how long your cartridges last. They do this to try to prevent refilling. Cartridges typically last for a little less than two years after the expiry date listed on them.

You can fix this (as I did) by buying a couple of new cartridges # 56 and #57. They sell them together in the same pack for 50-something bucks in Walmart.

Hope this helps.

PSC 2200 All 4 lights keep flashing the message is to remove and check cartridge.


Hey I figured out how to fix this problem. The problem is not the cartridge it is the clamp that holds the cartridge down if you look at the bottoms of the cartridges the offending cartridge is lower. I beleave it is the spring that gets tired in the hold down lever. What I did was put a piece of cardboard behind(above) the black plastic with spring in the lever. What I used was a coaster from the bar and that tightend it up enough and it worked right away.
thanks

Re:Canon Multipass C3500ex


Don, have you unplugged the printer for a few minutes? first the power plug, see if that clears it. If not, unplug it from the computer, reboot the computer, then plug printer back in. If not that,when an ink cartridge is refilled (depending on the model) the printer needs to be tricked into thinking a "new" cartidge is being installed. They make their money from the ink, not as much the printer. You may need to check the owners manual to see if the is the case. I have had to use tape to block off certain contacts, then remove the cartidge and block off another section of contacts, then remove tape all together and re-insert the cartridge.
