If you replace the cartridge with a new one and the printer still says it is empty, then most likely you didn't install it properly. Remember you need to shake the cartridge before your install it.

The color of my print is very pink and yellow with no blue


If your printer has 3 colored ink cartridges, your cyan (blue) cartridge is empty. Replace it with a new one. If your printer has just one colored ink cartridge, the blue section of it is empty. Replace the cartridge with a new one. You'll find the correct cartridge (normally a number) in the owners manual and/or on the cartridge itself. See the owners manual for instructions on where the cartridges are located and how to replace them.

I ran out of both black and color ink. I replaced the black ink b/c I do not print in color. But I cannot complete the alignment steps without the color ink.


Lexmark printers usually require both cartridges to have ink left in them to continue printing. But try to press the Cancel button for the Alignment process (this is not recommended). Then try to print a document again to verify that you are able to continue printing without an empty color ink.
If that doesn't help, I would suggest you replace your color cartridge with a new genuine Lexmark cartridge.

What does cyan mean on a brother 240-c all in 1 printer it says replace cyan it wont do nothing


Cyan is the "blue/green" ink cartridge which is required to print in full color. Some printers stop working when one or more ink cartridges is empty. Get a complete set for some savings and for the next cartridge that gets empty. Printers are cheap now, it's the ink that gets costly.

Epson CX3900 says all cartridges empty but not true


Did you use Epson Genuine Cartridges?

ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine Epson Cartridges. !!!!!!!!

Also go thru the utility to change cartridges. This will make the chip know that you have all new cartridges and will move the ink station in place.

In Purchasing Epson's CX 5400, CX4600, & CX7400 and more, I found out that Epson does not like Generic Printer Cartridges. I also Purchased a Brother. That also does not like Generic Print Cartridges. Color that should be Yellow, will turn out Green, Blue Brown, etc.

These printers have a CHIP that will detect if it is Generic or Genuine. When they see it’s Generic Cartridges, it will print lines thru the words, stripes across the picture and also do a mix match with the colors. It also will not let you print anything, if only one of the cartridges is empty.

I wanted to print only Black, and would not let me, because I did not have any ink in one of my cyan cartridges. Go figure.

That's what these Companies do., so they can keep selling the ink cartridges. Some Printers, are able to use Generic, and some are refillable. Some you can refill them up yourself and I heard, quite MESSY.

So I learned, thru trial and error, that you must use the ORIGINAL Genuine Cartridges for these PRINTERS. Some people say some models work fine compatible, but not mine.......


I had to replace the printer, but Epson, Lexmark & Brothers are always on sale. My Brother & Epson cost me $50.00 with Rebate. .

This is the only advice I can give you. If you find this helpful, pls rate me.

Thanks and Good Luck :0)

Colour cartridge missing but I only want to print


No you cannot. Each one of your cartridges is smart chipped. When this cartridge registers as empty it acts as an on/off switch thus turning the printer off.'

You need to replace the empty cartridge in order to print.

Go printer settings and check option to print only black.

Photo prints


Try cleaning mode on the printer, secondly a single color on a print or two or thre with one color noticeably absent means that that cfartridge is close on or is empty. EG Red Blue Yellow most of print is Ok but at end of print only blue seen means RED AND yellow are empty and only blue has some ink left. Replace ALL cartridges so your prints and paper arent wasted .

Wont print with all new ink cartridges


If the error message is only "magenta/cyan low", it doesn't cause any error. The low message stays after replacing ink cartridges if they're replaced too early (before they're indicated as actually empty), it doesn't cause the printer to not work.
However, some other problem might be faulty, or there might be another error message. Try emptying printer queue and print from Ink Management -> Menu/set (twice) to check wether the problem is with communication from pc or if the printer actually is unable to print.
