How do i change the print cartridge?


Replacing the print cartridge
  1. Open the print cartridge door, and remove the old print cartridge. CAUTION: To prevent damage to the print cartridge, minimize its exposure to direct light by covering it with a sheet of paper. Figure 1: Removing the print cartridge c01174123.jpg
  2. Remove the new print cartridge from the packaging. CAUTION: To prevent damage to the print cartridge, hold the print cartridge at each end.
  3. Pull the tab until all the tape is removed from the cartridge. Put the tab in the print cartridge box to return for recycling. Figure 2: Removing the sealing tape c01211568.jpg
  4. Gently rock the toner cartridge from front to back to distribute the toner evenly inside the cartridge. Figure 3: Shaking the print cartridge c01211569.jpg
  5. Insert the print cartridge in the device and close the print cartridge door. Figure 4: Inserting the print cartridge c01174125.jpg CAUTION: If toner gets on your clothing, wipe it off with a dry cloth and wash the clothing in cold water. Hot water sets toner into the fabric.

NOTE: When toner is low, faded or light areas appear on the printed page. You might be able to temporarily improve print quality by redistributing the toner. To redistribute the toner, remove the cartridge from the device and gently rock it from front to back.

Installed new ink cartridges in my PIXMA M470 printer/scanner. Now the photos I print are very dim. What should I do?


Hi,
Firstly, how long have you been using the new cartridges? Sometimes it takes a few prints before the ink flows properly. Secondly, are you using original cartridges?
Let me know if you still have a problem after doing 10 or 15 prints.
Best wishes,
Graemevm

Hp officejet 6110 not printing with black ink


Hi lilacky-

Here are some HP support links that might be helpful... and a couple questions to consider.

Q: Is your new cartridge one of these listed below?
"The HP Officejet 6100 series and HP Digital Copier Printer 410 products use the print cartridges listed below:
* HP 56 black print cartridge
* HP 57 tri-color print cartridge
* HP 58 photo cartridge (replaces the HP 56 black print cartridge for six-ink photo printing)" info from: Installing a Print Cartridge
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00004340&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&rule=12548&product=79477 Is your new cartridge a refilled cartridge? Some times those have special challenges. Has your cartridge been sitting a while in the box, maybe in a warm spot? Some times even new cartridges dry out a little. Was your old cartridge low or completely gone? Just as a test, if you put it back in your printer does the old cartridge work? Any printer error messages? Can you print a test page or an alignment page for your black cartridge? These might be too many questions but here are some HP support links with some How To information for getting more answers. Please let me know if any of these are helpful. see also: Slow or No Response from Printer

Printing too dim to read or see...black and color ink is brand new.


You'll need another printhead and before you say this is a terrible inconvenience remember that with any other printer you replace the printhead with every new ink cartridge. Printheads aren't supposed to last a long time and depending on the amount of printing, they really aren't even supposed to last a long time.

Try these steps. Open the printer, remove the ink and remove the printhead (See User's guide). Reseat the printhead and the ink cartridges. The printer will come up with an error message that requires calibration. Do the calibration and scan the sheet that prints right after by pushing the start button. In the menu options, clean the printhead. Do one basic and one deep. Print a demo sheet (another menu option) to see if the quality has gotten better. If it has not call Kodak AiO Tech support. You will need a replacement printhead.

Illegal toner


Sorry, this sounds outside my experience.  The only trigger for the 'illegal toner' message that I know is that the cartridge has the wrong plug on it.  A 'proper' Brother cartridge will have the same plug as the rest and be very easy to check.  
I have both refilled empty cartridges and used commercially refilled ones. As I said, the only time I have seen this message was with the wrong plug.  When I used non-spec toner I got 'ghosting' as the toner stayed too long on the transfer belt.  No error message, just poor quality printing.
OPC belts appear to need changing fairly often - I am on my third.  Take it out and have a look (note that it is light sensitive, do it quickly in dim light).  If it is not a clear shiny green it may not be up to spec.  As a quick fix you can reset the 'replace OPC belt' message, but they do wear out.  It is used to transfer toner from the cartridge to the paper - so failure means poor quality printing rather than a refusal to print.
Sorry I cannot help further.
