What printer model?

If the cartridge is a #45 or #15 the following may help.

Also inspect the spring that holds the cartrdge as shown here. If the spring has become dislodged and damaged the carriage flex the printer will require service. For some models and serial number ranges this is covered under an extended warranty, contact HP for details.

False ink empty


Are you sure its exclamation mark?..
This warning message related to print head. (warn out). When you are replacing ink tube assembly use dummy print heads to do the priming (new ink tubes are empty & they have to fill with ink)..
Action: Remove all cartridges and print heads, switch on the printer follow the screen message.(Insert cartridges first next dummy print heads).once its recognizes cartridges then it switch over to print heads,insert dummy print heads. Once printer recognized the dummy print heads, printer will perform priming, during priming dummy print heads will filled with respective inks.(follow the display message)Remove dummy print heads & insert normal print heads. Wait till printer recognizes print heads, load the paper & wait till performs the calibration, once calibration is successfully done issue closed.
If calibration not successfully done, check align print out for which print head is not printed properly, replace it..
Pl ensure that minimum 50% ink levels required in cartridges before performing the priming. Best of luck..

Display fax gives a warning "received in memory" we also have a warning "prepare black toner" We can not print the fax! What can we do?


Generally the "received in memory" message is a result of the machines inability to print. I.E. It received a fax, attempted to print it, failed, and then stored it in memory to print once the issue has been corrected.

The Prepare Black Toner error is likely directly related. If the toner cartridge is empty, inserted incorrectly, or damaged it could be causing this error. Try reseating the cartridge by removing and reinserting. If that doesn't clear the error try replacing it with a new Canon branded cartridge.

As soon as you correct the printing issue the stored faxes will print.

Ink cartridge light keeps blinking


you need to print only in black if that is all the ink you have, and also you need to remove the color cartridge as it still registers in the printer as able to be used, although it is empty or near so. Did you remove the tape over the print head fron the new ink cartridge? Do a print head alignment, or use the toolbox icon to tell the printer that you just replaced the cartridge. Some HP models chip the ink cartridges so even a refill wont register as a full tank and the printer wont print. chip needs to be reset (difficult) or just replaced with a new cartridge.

Follow these instructions when the ink level is low.

Note When the ink level for the print cartridge is low, a message appears on

your computer screen. You can also check the ink levels by using the software

installed with the HP All-in-One.

When you receive a low-ink warning message, make sure you have a replacement

print cartridge available. You should also replace the print cartridges when you see

faded text or if you experience print quality issues related to the print cartridges.

To order print cartridges for the HP All-in-One, go to www.hp.com/learn/suresupply. If

prompted, choose your country/region, follow the prompts to select your product, and

then click one of the shopping links on the page.

For a list of print cartridge numbers, see the back cover of this guide.

To replace the print cartridges

1. Make sure the HP All-in-One is on.

Caution If the HP All-in-One is off when you open the print cartridge door

to access the print cartridges, the HP All-in-One will not release the

cartridges for changing. You might damage the HP All-in-One if the print

cartridges are not docked safely on the right side when you try to remove

them.

2. Open the print cartridge door.

The print carriage moves to the center of the HP All-in-One.

3. Wait until the print carriage is idle and silent, and then lightly press down on a

print cartridge to release it.

If you are replacing the tri-color print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the

slot on the left.

If you are replacing the black or photo print cartridge, remove the print cartridge

from the slot on the right.

Chapter 8

28 HP Deskjet F300 All-in-One series

Maintain the HP All-in-One

1 Print cartridge slot for the tri-color print cartridge

2 Print cartridge slot for the black and photo print cartridges

4. Pull the print cartridge toward you out of its slot.

5. If you are removing the black print cartridge in order to install the photo print

cartridge, store the black print cartridge in the print cartridge protector or an

airtight plastic container.

If you are removing the print cartridge because it is low or out of ink, recycle the

print cartridge. The HP Inkjet Supplies Recycling Program is available in many

countries/regions, and lets you recycle used print cartridges free of charge. For

more information, go to the following website:

www.hp.com/hpinfo/globalcitizenship/environment/recycle/inkjet.html

6. Remove the new print cartridge from its packaging and, being careful to touch

only the black plastic, gently remove the plastic tape by using the pink pull tab.

1 Copper-colored contacts

2 Plastic tape with pink pull tab (must be removed before installing)

3 Ink nozzles under tape

Caution Do not touch the copper-colored contacts or ink nozzles.

Touching these parts can result in clogs, ink failure, and bad electrical

connections.

User Guide 29

Maintain the HP All-in-One

7. Slide the new print cartridge forward into the empty slot. Then gently push on the

upper part of the print cartridge forward until it clicks into the socket.

If you are installing the tri-color print cartridge, slide it into the left slot.

If you are installing a black or photo print cartridge, slide it into the right slot.

8. Close the print cartridge door.

9. If the print cartridge alignment sheet prints, load it on the left front corner of the

glass with the top of the page to the left.

10. Press the Scan button.

The HP All-in-One aligns the print cartridges. Recycle or discard the print
cartridge alignment sheet.
