Periodically, I'm told that there is a problem with the cyan ink cartridge. It's full of ink and the printer is barely used. if I take it out and re-insert, the warnings go away. Is there a way I can prevent these warning message from occurring?
1. Just open and close the cover a bid, this will initiate new checking of all ink cartridges
2. clean the contacts of the inkcartridge chip e.g. with spirit
3. Press the reset/stop-button for >10s to quit the error ... but be aware that the ink level will no longer shon correctly

Hello John! Welcome to FixYa! Actually you need to replace the Ink Cartridge of your printer. When the Cyan in Cartridge indicate you to "Set the Ink Cartridge" then it means the cartridge is not supporting to your printer. Usually this problem can be solved by Resetting but as you told that you have tried this before and problem is still there so now you need to replace it as a whole. If your printer is still in warranty then you can go for warranty claim but if it is now out of warranty then contact EPSON authorized service center and make sure to have duplicate original Ink Cartridge.
hello sir, hi, the ink comes out from the ink cartridge to the ink cradle where the ink pass to the paper, this is clogged, need you to clean the ink cradle, you can use warm water to soften the dried ink.
you are lucky to have use the cartridges of your printer for 19 months. In my office experience, I am actually replacing the cartridges of my printers within a year. Just a regular life span of an ink refilled cartridge.
Cyan is the "blue/green" ink cartridge which is required to print in full color. Some printers stop working when one or more ink cartridges is empty. Get a complete set for some savings and for the next cartridge that gets empty. Printers are cheap now, it's the ink that gets costly.
HP 74 - Black ink HP 75 - Cyan, Magenta, and Yellow ink HP 99 - Photo Black, Light Cyan, and Light Magenta
You need Photo Black, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Light Cyan, and Light Magenta to print photos. To accomplish this you install the HP 99 photo cartridge where your HP 74 black cartridge usually goes and you keep the HP 75 color cartridge where it's at. I don't know why your printer told you to remove both cartridges, then reinstall the HP 75 color cartridge.
Hi, If you go to your printer properties, there should be a setting whereby you have to select the option to "PRINT USING BLACK CARTRIDGE ONLY". Make sure this option is selected, otherwise your printer will use ALL colors even if you only print black. Let me know if you need any further assistance. Best wishes, Graemevm
Above link great.
If you have a newer print cartridge cart, look for the little window. I put a sticker over the little window on the Brother (innobella) LC38 cartridge cart and it worked great :)
Despite finding a fix for this problem, I think this is a rip off setting on the brother printers and I will never buy another Brother printer for this reason.
That is happening because you have "smart" chips on your cartridges, so even though you know there is still some ink left in the tank, if the chip says stop, the printer will stop printing. There is a way to bypass that and that is by using a re-setter. You can either buy one or ask to re-set your cartridge in a refill shop. You can also try holding the "resume" button (triangle in circle for about 10 seconds for each cartridge, sometimes doing that resets the cartridges. Do not refill the magenta and cyan cartridges if they are not empty, you'll just be wasting your money. Better use it to buy a re-setter ;) Hope that will help!
