I've a 564XL black cartridge when inserted into a HP Photosmart 7525 refuses to happened while trying to print TICKETS WORTH $261 for an event this Sunday, the 25th...HELP......ROBE

The expiration date should not be of any problem. When the printer has an issue with the cartridge, it could be the contacts in the printer or on the print head are not clean or shiny. It looks as a communication problem. When the printer does not give an error, you just won't get black the hear must be cleaned.
OR when cleaning does not help we need a hefty measure.
When the print head is not on the cartridge, and cleaning does not work, remove the cartridge and let a drop of cleaning fluid fall in the nozzle, where the ink should go in. place the cartridge back and let the printer print a few pages of black. (just some text pages with black bold type face would do. Let it print till you see the printer is starting to show text, Then again do a clean cartridge and the printer should be fine for a while.

Crtg missing instal new ribbon printronix p7005

This error message normally happen due to following reasons..
1. Didn't remove protective tape on cartridge.
2. Didn't properly seat cartridge.
3. Contacts on carriage need to be cleaned.
4.If you inserted and removed Cartridge many times..

Try to do it: You can wipe the copper contact plate on the cartridge over with a slightly damp piece of kitchen towel using distilled water. While doing this you need to turn off your comp and printer. Let the contact plate dry for a minute or two before putting back on.

After inserting the cartridge, run the print head cleaning program 3 to 4 times for best results as this will clean the heads and push the ink through.

My 9500 printer is not printing one color and ive done the deep cleaning as instructed. how do i remove the print head so i can clean it?

Turn the printer on.
Lift the cover to expose the print-head mechanism.
The print-heads will slide to a position from where you can "unlock" the ink-cartridge from its holder, and then gently remove the empty(???) ink-cartridge.
Insert a new ink-cartridge (or refill the empty cartridge).
Close the lid.
Print a "test" page.

It wont print,it says it's out of alignment

If these are new cartridges Please try the old cartridge and see if you get the same problem
If you don't then the new cartridge is defective and should be returned and exchanged for another
If it does give you the same problem please try the following

Remove all the ink cartridges from the machine
Then clean the contacts on the cartridges as well as inside the machine itself
Do this with a small amount of warm water on a cotton swab until no ink comes off on the swab
If any of the other cartridges are low, empty, leaking or bulging replace them
Then turn off the machine and unplug it for 70 seconds
Plug it back it and wait for the insert cartridges message
Insert the cartridges and check to see if the problem is still there
If it is it means the print head has failed
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
The print head has seperate nozzles for each cartridge so it can print black for example and the color print blank even if the print head has failed.
It also works the same way with the detection of the cartridges.

May be you also need to find "Alignment" procedure button in driver properties and carefully follow the on-screen instructions.

How to install ink catridge

Turn the printer on.
Lift the lid that covers the print-head mechanism.
Check for any instructions on the inside of the lid.
After a few seconds, the ink-cartridges will slide to a new position.
Unlock the cartridge from its socket, either by moving the lever,
or by pushing-down on the cartridge, and gently lift it out.

Insert the new cartridge. Lock it into the socket.
Run a "print-head" alignment cycle, for optimal colour-printing.

Problem started when I installed a new black cartridge, which apparently didn't fit properly (it was loose and didn't click into place). Printer kept trying to calibrate for new cartridge, but wouldn't...

Hi, Pls plug it to power and open the cover to replace cartridge. After that remove power cord & remove cartridge. Clean slot & printer head.
(it may also happen that u do not have a good original)

Elvis Alive dead out of the box

My Elvis worked for the first day and not the next. I tried to reset him by going from off to on, but I got nothing. I tried to take out the cartridge and restall it, nothing. I replaced the batteries in the remote, nothing.
I unplugged him and replugged him, nothing. I'm stumped. I can't resusitate him.

Prints without any errors but no ink on the paper.

if you have new print head assembly and cartridges, and waited for flow, and the printer is MECHANICALLY sound (not dropped or G-force damaged), then all that is left is improper cartridge installation. You may not have the cartridges fully inserted/, or maybe they are not PROPERLY inserted. Look for a snap when in place (and no wiggle). I suspect this is your problem, because one symptom you mention, ink accumulation INSIDE the head/cartridge cradle, is VERY rare -unless the cartridge is inserted improperly. The cartridges/head assemblies have VERY good seals to prevent leakage. Unless the o-rings/seals are damaged, leakage outside the seal just does not happen at all, normally.

*New head/cartridge installs can take several hours -sometimes even a day in cold weather, for small iP90-like printers to saturate the heads -and print.
