    It says that there's no cyan and magenta cartridges and refuses to print anything even in black and white because of it. It doesn't want to clean it's head or do anything.

If you are using or have used third party generic ink cartridges or refilled ink cartridges, the Cartridge Sensor printed circuit board may have been damaged. We have found that some third party generic ink cartridges leak onto the ink cartridge sensor circuit board causing an electrical short of the ink cartridge sensors. The damage from the leaked ink results in the machine displaying NO CARTRIDGE because the machine will no longer recognize the installed ink cartridge(s). Genuine Brother ink cartridges do not cause this issue because of the unique design developed to fit specifically in the Brother products. As long as a Brother cartridge has not been refilled, the Brother cartridge will not leak.

MFC-J430W will not recognize any new magenta cartridge!

When installing the cartridges, it is important that you insert them from left to right with the black cartridge first and the magenta cartridge last. The reason for this is because the magenta cartridge has a clip on top of it that goes into the cartridge door sensor. The clip needs to push the sensor in so the printer is able to function with the cartridge door open. If you insert the magenta cartridge first, the printer will think the cartridge door is closed and you will get a error message for the other missing cartridges.

Right catridge not correct

Make sure you are inserting the correct cartridge versions for your Lexmark X5470 printer. Color cartridges compatible for your model are #33 and #35.
Try to re-insert the right cartridge into the printer. If that doesn't help, remove the right cartridge from your printer again. Close the printer cover. 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. When the printer turns on, re-insert your right cartridge. Close the printer cover and check for any errors. Try to print a document to verify that the problem is fixed.
If the problem continues, try to do the Clean Cartridge function from the printer operator panel. On Copy mode, press the Menu button > select Tools > select Maintenance > select Clean Cartridges. Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean them. Try to print a document to verify that the problem is fixed.
If the error still appears on the display screen, you probably have a faulty cartridge. Please replace it with a new genuine Lexmark cartridge.

HP 8500 OfficeJet Printer Display keeps showing a message that my Magenta catridge is empty and need to be changed even though I changed it

Try cleaning out the cartridge slot. This is very often the reason that your printer isn't recognising it, because it's dirty.
I hope i was able to help.

Ink cartridge not properly installed

I have gone through all the forums but none of them worked...

The correct solution for the problem is the canon printer needs to have both the color and black catridges present in the printer...
So even if you purchased new black catridge only you need to have the old color catridge to be placed in the place of color catridge....

So it will detect the catridges and if any of the one is empty it asks to select black at the time of printing and simply select it you will get a black print...

So make sure both the catridges either empty or full need to be placed to detect the catridges....

I hope it will be helpful.....

Colour Ink Jet Cartridges emptying during a black ink print run

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.
