Keeps saying install c


Hello,

When the printer says "install C" it is referring to the Cyan (blue) ink cartridge. If this is not a new cartridge, you might have to replace it. If this is a new cartridge, try following these steps.

1. Unplug the power cable.
2. Remove all 4 ink cartridges.
3. Close the ink cover
4. Plug the power back in.
5. Wait for the machine to warm up and tell you that the ink is empty.
6. Reinsert all 4 ink cartridges.

If you keep getting the same message you should try another cartridge. You can put the yellow cartridge in the blue spot to see if you get the same message. If you get the same message then the machine is broken. If you get a new message then the cyan cartridge needs to be changed.

Thanks,

Pat

My dell 924 printer shows right cartridge incorrect and I just had both cartridges refilled what is wrong?


I purchased remanufactured ink cartridges through amazon.com. I got 4 for the price of 1 through Dell. After installing the first cartridge, it printed for a few days and then I got the same message "left cartridge incorrect". Unfortunately, I did not read the piece of paper that came with my cartridge that says "STOP" read this before you install the cartridge.
I had to throw out the cartridge that I had just installed and put in a new one and follow these steps:
1. If you recieve a pop-up message indicating that the cartridge has been depleted or a low ink level warning, please disregard.
2. Check "Don't display this dialog again" and click "ok" or "continue printing" if necessary.
3. In the printer status window, since you have already ordered ink, do not click the "order ink online" button. If you have the option, check "I have ordered my ink, please don't remind me again." If not, close the window and continue printing.

I'm not sure why, but these instructions were vital to getting my remanufactured cartridges to work.

I am posting this reply to hopefully help out the next person that has this problem. Unfortunately, I lost a perfectly good ink cartridge because I failed to read the instructions the first time. But the next one worked just fine when I followed the instructions. Good luck!

Office jet 5510 keeps saying wrong black cartridge.


Look on the right side where the cartridge goes, if the spring on the right is hanging loose it might have poked a hole in the ribbon cable at the rear near the contacts. If so it's time for a new printer, if OK, check the exp. date on the ink cartridge and if it's been refilled or a generic ink you may just need another one.

It keeps giving the alert wrong cartridge and wont print.I installed for the 1st time ink power cartridge instead of canon's and it won't do nothing........... these cartridge are half price but look...


Wrong cartridge refers to the printhead and not the inks. This machine, when the printhead goes bad gives that error. A new printhead is around $60.00 for that machine. QY6-0064-000.

Check cartridge


Lets try this first:
01. Verify that the unit is switched on.
02. Remove the power cable from the back of the machine.
03. Wait for 1 Minute.
04. Press and hold the POWER button on the front panel.
05. Reinsert the power cable in the backside of the unit.
06. Print a test page. If the problem persists, replace the cartridge.
What causes these symptoms?
These printers have a cartridge check feature. If it detects cartridge contact problems such as dirt, dust or oil on a contact, it will give warnings so the user can correct them by properly seating the cartridge and / or cleaning the contacts.

When a problem is detected, a software 'flag" is set within the printer that should be reset when the user corrects the contact problem.

Due to a firmware error, the 'flag' does not reset until the power is cycled to the printer and repeated warnings are delivered. Power cycling resets the 'flag' and eliminates the warnings.
HP has for years now stated the problem was corrected.

All the BEST

Highly possible that the "compatable" cartridges are not really compatable or that Epson has updated software or firmware to keep them from working. Try replacing with Epson cartridges or see if the non-OEM brand seller has a resetting device so the printer sees those cartridges as full.

No cartridge found error


One or more ink carts aredodgy, fit gen new brother inks (x4)

On inks carts there is a flag inside them that normally floats, when it sits down due to ink level being low it blocks a photocell to stop machine from working, it needs to do this to stop any air getting in ink lines, so inks may appear to have ink in them but will not work, on some refill/aftermarket carts flag gets stuck
