Try turning off printer at power point, leave 5 to 10 minutes and turn on again, if still not regognised, try new cartridge and if that works, take the one that didn't work back for exchange.

Printer wont acknowledge ink loading

Make sure you are using genuine Lexmark cartridges. Refilled cartridges won't be able to register ink levels. If you are using original supplies, it could be just a slight cartridge communication error. Try the steps below:
  1. Make sure the printer is on. Open the printer cover.
  2. The carrier should move to its loading position. Open the latch and remove the cartridges.
  3. Close the latch.
  4. Re-brick your printer by pulling out the power supply - black box behind the printer where the power cord is plugged in to, and re-insert after 10 seconds.
  5. When the printer turns on, re-insert the cartridges. Close the printer cover.
  6. Check on your computer if ink level is acknowledged.
  7. Try to print a document to verify that the problem is fixed.

Hi I have Brother dcp 350 printer. I have the error 46 unable to print/clean i cant get the printer back to normal functions. I have change the inks (all) and I am still get the same error message 46....

The messages unable to print, unable to clean, unable 36, error 46 and error 32 are all print head errors.

1. Remove all the ink cartridges from the machine
2. Clean the contacts on the cartridges as well as inside the machine itself with a small amount of warm water or alcohol on a cotton swab until no ink comes off on the swab.

Note: if any of the other cartridges are low, empty, leaking or bulging replace them

3. Then turn off the machine and unplug it for 70 seconds
4. Plug it back it and wait for the insert cartridges message
5. Insert the cartridges and check to see if the problem is still there. If it is it means the print head has failed and in order to fix this the print head inside the printer needs to be replaced. The print head is the part of the printer that puts ink from the cartridges onto the page

Unfortunately this can sometimes cost more to replace then the machine itself.

I put the replacement ink cartridges for my printer empty and no. wants to acknowledge. Keeps coming on screen I have to Replaceable. What should I do?

Try to clean the nozzles on your cartridge. How to Clean the Print Cartridge Nozzles and Contacts Manually. Then, properly reinsert the cartridge in the carrier. Unplug and replug your printer into the power source to reset it. If error still appears, try to insert a known working cartridge to determine if the other is faulty.

My hp officeject 6300 series printer not printing colors but working fine with black. Is anyone would like to let me know the problem. Both cartrindges are almost new.

Check to be sure the cartridges are in the right slots.
Print a test page, if it prints in color.
Then it is the application your using to print.
"It may be set to print in black or gray scale only."

Run the the menu on the front panel and make sure Color is on.
I have one just like it. 99% of the time it is the application switching off the color. Double check the color cartridge and make sure the machine acknowledges the insertion of a new color cartridge. If not it will default to the black ink only.

Good luck!
Hope this helps.

Brpther DCP 330c does not recognise new black ink cartridge

Usually there is more than one cartridge empty when you receive this kind of problem. Try opening the top cover and check if the display changes - it should change to specify one (or more) of the color cartridges as empty. That one(s) should be changed too.

Not able to print

Faulty cartridge. Yes, it happens. Specially if it is not an HP replacement. Try inserting the old one and see if it stops the light. If it works, get a refund on your new cartridge.
By the way, did you remove the tape from the contacts before installing?
