New cartridge inserted but printer says I still need a new one

I replaced a number of cartridges in my printer but the utility says I still need to replace one that I already did, from a sealed new box. Any idea what the issue could be?

    I have replaced the yellow ink cartridge in the 1400 but it still reads that it needs to be replaced

  • brooke1373 Dec 02, 2008

    My 1400 is a brand new printer I hooked up to a ciss. When I switched back to new epson ink cartridges, printer won't recognize them. It shows all six are out of ink and won't charge them. I have tried unplugging them (and the printer) several times. Nothing works. I plugged the continuous ink system in again, those worked and recharged. But the epson cartridges still won't work at all.

Hi. When I fitted the second set of cartridges to my Epson Stylus Photo 1400, the printer failed to recognize any of them, even though they were genuine Epson! I repeatedly installed and un-installed them without success. After giving it a bit of thought, I had a hunch that the contacts on the cartridges might not be making good contact with the contacts on the printer as the cartridges seemed a little loose. I removed each cartridge in turn and after putting some adhesive tape on the opposite end to the contacts, (there are grooves cut into this end, but the tape drops nicely into them when you install the cart) replaced them all. (This had the effect of pushing the cartridges harder against the contacts). Switched on again and all carts worked fine. So it seems that even Epson can't make the cartridges to fit their own printer properly! Having said that it's a great printer otherwise. I hope this is helpful to you.

I had the same problem. I return the cartridges to the store and they send it back to the company. I have been refund because it was a manufacturing defect.

If that doesn't help it you have bad cartridges.

Canon mx700 not recognizing cartridges


I suspect that your have a damaged refilled cartridge. Also, you may have a clogged nozzle. Canon printers are sensitive to the quality of the ink used in the cartridges and refill ink sometimes does not meet the manufacturer's specifications. You can check this by inserting a new OEM cartridge, running the deep cleaning utillity three times and a aligning the printhead. The other problem may be that the electronic chip on the refilled cartridge may either be damaged or blocked by dried ink. In any case, you need to discard the failing cartridge and replace it.
Let me know if this solves the problem. Thanks.

Printer said to replace yellow cartridge,replaced yellow cartridge,will notprint at all


If you are not getting an error message, your nozzles may be clogged. If you are using aftermarket or refilled cartridges, insert new OEM cartridges and run deep cleaning a number of times (3x) and the realignment utility. This should clear the nozzles and the cartridge sensors. Secondary market cartridges often do not meet manufacturer's specifications and can clog the printer nozzles. This should clear the problem.

Hi I just replaced the ink cartridge on my 210c printer and it still reads near empty on all. Is there something I need to do to reset? Wendy


If you have already run the deep cleaning utility and alignment utility, it sounds like you may be using aftermarket/refilled cartridges. The nozzles and ink sensors may be clogged.

To clear the sensors and nozzle, install new OEM cartridges, run deep cleaning a number of times (at least 3 times), and then the alignment utility.
Aftermarket/refilled cartridges do not always meet the manufacturer's specifications for quality. Try cartridges from LDproducts.com for your printer. I've never had a problem with their aftermarket cartridges.
Please rate this solution. Thanks.

Printer will not print. I have instlled new ink, printer head moves side to side but nothing prints


If things were working before you replaced the new ink cartridges, the chances are that the new cartridges are defective. This is common for aftermarket and refilled cartridges. The aftermarket ink has probably clogged the nozzles. The simple solution is to replace the cartrtridges with OEM cartridges, run the nozzle cleaning utility an number of times (suggest 3x) and align the printheads. This should clear your printer problem.
Please let me know if this works for you. Thanks.

I changed the ink in my officejet 7130 and it still says the cartridge needs to be replaced. When I check ink supply it reads that the cartridge is full. It wont align or clean the print heads.

I have followed the instructions exactly for replacing the black toner cartridge on my Magicolor 2300 DL, but i still have the error message "Replace Toner Black." I tried taking out the cartridge and...


If you have changed the toner cartridge, the printer must complete a calibration cycle (up to 150 seconds). If you open the door before the Ready indicator on the control panel lights up and the Error indicator turns off, the printer stops and repeats the calibration cycle.

1. Open the Status Display (double-click on Status Display icon in the system tray on the lower right-hand portion of the task bar, OR click Start/Programs/KONICA MINOLTA magicolor 2300W Utilities/KONICA MINOLTA magicolor 2300W Status), and then check which toner color is empty.
2. From the Print menu choose Toner Replace...
3. In the Color list box, select the color of the toner cartridge to be replaced (CYAN, MAGENTA, YELLOW, or BLACK).
4. Select the capacity of the new toner cartridge (1500 or 4500).
5. Click OK.
6. When the toner indicator on the control panel starts flashing, open the printer's front door. The carousel is automatically repositioned so that the appropriate toner cartridge can be removed.

2300-1.gif8. Support the middle of the cartridge with your left hand, and then pull out the cartridge.
2300-2.gif9. Remove the new toner cartridge from its shipping carton.
10. Remove the protective cover clearly marked 'Remove'.
Each toner cartridge has a colored end that corresponds to a color inside the cartridge slots. Always install the toner cartridge in the slot of the same color.

What model printer do you have and can you list the print cartridge?
Also have you selected on the onboard printer menu that you have inserted a new cartridge?
