Reinstall the old cartrige that you were replacing and see if it is recognized. If it is then the problem is your new cartridge not the printer. Take the new cartridge back to vendor and get them to replace it, which they should do if they are reputable.

Hello, My epson printer doesn't print the scales of grey right. It prints black, but the scales of gray look like green-blue. Thank you PS The ink catridges are new.


Have you recently changed the black cartridge with a non-standard or remanufactured cartridge? I'm having the same problem with my deskjet and it started when I changed my Black cartridge for a non-HP refill.

The left side of documents received do not print. How do I correct that?


I've checked my 3055 service manual and do not see this particular error as you've described it; I do have a couple of suggestions which may be helpful.
Since only half the page is printing, this implies an error with the print cartridge itself, it may either be low on toner or it may be damaged.
Does this error occur when you are printing documents from your computer or making copies as well? or does it only occur when you are receiving faxes? If the error is occuring regardless of what you are printing (or copying) and from received faxes I would have to conclude an issue with the toner cartridge itself.
You can visually inspect the cartridge by pulling back the plastic cover part and see if the roller shows signs of damage. If so, replace it.

Try shaking the catridge back and forth to even out the toner inside; If the cartidge is low on toner it's possible that what remains is only on one side.
Inside the printer, below where the cartridge sits is a black colored, somewhat spongy roller. This is called the transfer roller and if it's damaged it could be the cause of your print quality error.
Lastly, I would try a new HP cartridge, stay away from the generic brand ones as they tend to have a much higher failure rate and do not come with the HP warranty.
I hope this helps!

11 blue dots print out down the left hand side of documents


It's probably the toner cartridge again. See if you can spot defects at the cyan drum unit that matches the marks on your printout.

Take 2 Paper Towels one should be wet with Luke warm water and the other one should be dry...........
Take the Colour catridge first turn it upside down and u will see a small copper plate on the catridge from where the ink comes out.......
Place the wet paper towel using ur thumb on the Copper plate and press it a lit bit for 10 Seconds......
Now remove it and see whether u see any ink on the paper towel..........
U should see some ink on it now place the dry paper towel on the ink catridge in the same way........
Now do the same procedure again..........
Do the same procedure twice on the Black Catridge.................
Now take the dry paper towel and turn the direction of the cartridge so that u can see a Copper plate on it with small boxes just clean that copper plate with the Dry Paper Towel..........
Know insert both the catridges inside the Printer..

Hp 4600 no cyan printing


Firstoff, if you have tray 1 set to "any size" & "any type" they had problems with it going into calibration to frequently. If you upgrade the firmware this will take care of that. As for no Cyan, check the scanner interlock to insure it is opening the scanner cover. You could also go into diagnostics and disable cartridge check and swap the cartridges around, ie. cyan & magenta, run the print quality pages and see if the problem follows the cartridge. It could also be HV power supply.
