Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

My Hewlett Packard OfficeJet Pro 7500 has problems recognizing the Cyan ink cartridge. Seems to think the cartridge is empty or missing when in fact it's full and it's there in the slot. I put a new Cyan cartridge in and it works for a while and then starts telling the cartridge is defective, missing or empty. Message has varied.

Epson 1400 not recognizing an epson ink cartridge

not necessarily faulty cartridge - had same problem went thru various cartridges some worked some didn't - in fact they weren't epson - so bought epson from office depot and that would not work, so not an issue of ink dried up - if yr printer is fairly old may be easier just to replace rather than waste time and money on trying to figure out problem

HP8500 Cayan ink leaks

Either the cartridge is faulty, was improperly installed or the seal has gone on the cartridge carrier.

Take out the Cyan cartridge and one other. Check the mounting area where the ink comes out. If the cartridge has the ink jets as part of it, check the cartridge for holes near the upper surface. Remove the carrier (if removable) and look for bad seals and wash it.

A quick Google shows this is a common fault with this model. Cut your losses and buy a Canon.

Hi i have a hp officejet 4355 all in one printer at my place. i m having problem fixing with the cartridge as it is showing error. pls guide

Problems with Hewlett Packard Officejet 4355 printing can often be due to issues with the cartridges. The printer has two cartridges, one black and white, and one color. Both can be physically inspected for problems. The printer also has a self-test report to determine if there is a non-obvious problem with the cartridge. The report can provide valuable information, including status.

  • 1

    Take the black ink cartridge out of the slot on the right. Be careful not to touch the ink nozzles or the copper contacts.

  • 2

    Look at the cartridge and make sure that the plastic shipping tape isn't still attached. There shouldn't be any tape covering the ink nozzles.

  • 3

    Replace the black cartridge and then perform Steps 1 and 2 on the color cartridge. The color cartridge is the one on the left side.

  • 4

    Print a self-test report. Load paper in the tray and press "Setup." Press "2" and then "4." The HP Officejet 4355 will print a report. Make sure the lines of color extend across the page. Missing, faded or streaky lines can indicate a cartridge failure. If the color bars don't show as black, cyan, magenta and yellow, you should clean the cartridges.

  • 5

    Press "Setup" and then press "6" and then "1." The print cycle will commence. Allow it to complete and then print another test report. If the test still shows errors, replace the cartridges.

    My cyan cartridge shows as empty. My black

    No. You need all the cartridges installed with functioning chips for your printer to work. The reason why you need all the colors when all you print is black is because a small amount of color prints when you print black. The manufacturers want to make up their R&D costs on the printers by selling lots of expensive ink.

    Exactly the same frustrating problem. New cartridge = no ink

    Two possible causes..

    1. The cartridge chip is telling the printer that it's expired


    2. The rubber bulb in the base of the cartridge can be pushed all the way in without any ink leaving the cartridge. If that's the case the non-return valve in the cartridge itself has failed. This condition results in the printer thinking it's empty so you need to take the cartridge back to the supplier and get a replacement.

    Hope that helps even if I've missed a third possibility.
