Question about HP Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

I have a HPj3600 series printer,copier, scanner and fax machine all in one. I have been using refillable cartridges all this time. When an update was done on my computer, it will not allow me to use refillable cartridges anymore, only the name brand which costs double. I have using refillable cartridges for over 10 years with no problems. I have always gotten them from the same reputable company. How do I change this back so I can continue using the refillables?

Hi,

Trying cleaning the contacts on the cartridge and clean the contacts on the printer use a dry tint paper towel to clean the contacts. Then try to reinstall the cartridge using the software.

SOURCE: How do I run the cleaning tool on a Canon MP210 copier?

Go to printer in Control Panel-> Printers, select properties, the Canon utilities will include a cleaning option, along with aligning. Canon cartridges can be really finicky though; don't be surprised if it doesn't work at all.

I bought all new cartridges, inserted them the way they were removed, but message board still says defected cartridges. how to install ink properly and make error message disappear?


Here is a video from HP explaining the process. IF you followed this procedure and are getting errors, then you may have bigger issues. I am assuming you are using genuine HP ink, not remanufactured or refilled cartridges.

I am having problem on setup of the fax I have a line for fax


The orignal ink cartridges supplied with these machines are fairly low capacity. You can get XL versions which contain 2-3 times as much ink. If you are using refilled cartridges, you may find the Fax module can not tolerate refills. There is a way to reset the machine to ignore the ink level counter for the printer/copier functions, but the Fax module addresses the cartridges diferently for some reason.

How to override lexmark s415 low ink


There's no way to override the low ink warning. If one of the cartridges is out of ink, you won't be able to continue printing.

Refilled cartridges will not report or reset the ink levels.

S405


If you're using a genuine Lexmark cartridge, try to reseat the cartridge and unplug the power of the printer for about 30 seconds.

If you're using a remanufactured/refilled cartridge, it will not detect the ink levels and might damage the printhead.

Put non HP ink catridges into my HP 5520 and it does not detect them


Well, what can I say. "Non-HP" cartridges? Cheaper is not always the "best." HP's do act up (buy them all the time) when you try to fool them with cheap refill cartridges. Get the real MacCoys.........

My printer prints wrong colors?


First, I am sincerely sorry that you were deceived into purchasing a Lexmark, I mean Kodak, I mean.....yeah same thing. Their game is cheap machine's and expensive cartridges. We have seen a number of customers complain about these machines in our store. One customer has to have his print head replaced, via warranty, every time he changes his cartridges. My recommendation is to purchase a Canon that take the CLI-220 series cartridges. These cartridges can be refilled and reset by qualified refillers (do not use "compatibles"). For the time being, call "Kodak" and complain until they fix it. Sorry I couldn't offer you more.
