Ink cartrige cannot be recognised


make sure you've taken the protective tape off the cartrige. Usually its orange and noticeable.

Sometimes generic cartriges have a small chip and a registration that allows the printer to talk between the cartrige from what I under stand maybe ink levels and to protect profits on not allowing generic companies to make a more economical product competitively

the printer can sometimes be power cycled to allow it to accept the generic cartrige.
there are normally settings on a printer to see if you can change the internal settings can be altered to allow non Original Electronic Manufacturors products in a Canon Printer.

make sure that the type of printer you have is compatible with the printer. the computer may require a black cartridge or a color cartrige in a very specific location. they might not be allowed to be switched.
make sure the cartrige can slide in and out of it's slot comfortably.

FOR office printers. there are also protective tabs holding the ink in the cartrige. this side tab on the cartrige is there for shipping. these are normally on large 30 pound printers. top front loading Office printers. the tab needs to be turned hard and swift either clockwise or counter clockwise if you can't cleaning pull it out. Also remember your boss paid a lot for that cartrige dont break something your not comfortable breaking. be warned in advance this dry ink will spill and is hard to clean and harder to clean from clothing.



as per a fast solution a smaller printer and certainly a cartrige can actually be brought into a computer and electronics store whilst looking to buy a new print cartrige. Make sure if you do bring a piece of your own electronics into a store you check in with security. let them know its yours; wave it in front of a camera if youd like.
the seller normally should be able to recognize if their product will fit in your device it will save both of you time and inconvience.
cartriges cost about the same as a new printer with new ink.
dont be afriad to buy an extra ink at the time of purchase and risk letting it dry but having the back up that you know works-
you'll have a package for the next time you need a new cartidge. gives you more research material.
accept moores law
feel good about flossing on a new printer.
print some pictures and frame them-
pictures are some of the most important thing in our lives! Smile!

Check right cartrige


change the cartridge if you still face an issue,Your printer hardware has malfunctioned,you may or may not like this idea.
you can clean the contacts on the cartridge, then cleant the contacts inside the printer where the cartridges lay,if you still face the problem,call into hp at 1800-474-6836 and see if they can offer you an upgrade with a 50% discount or a new printer for just $130 which is wireless and usb capable.

MP140 do not recognize cartrige


Ensure that you are using original cartridges.

Clean the cartridge sensor inside the printer ink carriage with isopropyl alcohol and cotton. From description it looks like a faulty cartridge contact.

The cartridge sensor is the metal plaque that connects to the cartridge chip, is located inside the printer carriage.

Remove the cartridge, take a flashlight and check the right side inside the printer for a RED LED (in the place where the cartidge stays). Take a tape and patch that LED. That's all ! Enjoy

Print quality


Did you try the clean head function and examinte the test result. Sometimes the inks will stick on the connnection pad inside the printer. If this happens, you have to take out the cartrige and clean the contacts on the pcb. Try other ink cartrige and see if the problems stick to one ink cartrige or caused by hardware failure on printer.
