Hi-

- If a cartridge is expended, you see a message on the CX9400Fax display screen. The icon on the screen indicates which color to replace. Press OK.

- If you're replacing a cartridge before it's expended, press the Setup button, select Maintenance, and press OK. Then select Change Ink Cartridge and press OK.

Hope this helps

Why have my ink pads come to an end already and how do you change them i have an epson px700w?



Hi

You do not say which operating system you are using.


You do not say if you are using original Epson branded or compatible generic brand cartridges.

You do not say if the printer is new and if this is your first cardtridge change, or not.

Sometimes the cartidges that come with the printer are low volume, starter cartridges. The 2 types of cartridges have slightly different codes to distinguish them.

Some people prefer generic brand, compatible cartridges, which are generally cheaper but can be of inferior quality and some can contain inferior quality ink. Others prefer original Epson branded cartridges, which can be more expensive.

Some Epson printers can take both economy volume and high volume cartridges.

In Windows operating systems, generally:

Start > (Control Panel) > Printer(s) > right click on Epson PX700W icon > Printing Preferences > Maintenance > Ink Cartridge Replacement > follow on screen instructions > head cleaning >print test page.

or

Print a document > Print Dialog Box > click "How To..." > Maintenance > Ink Cartridge Replacement > follow on screen instructions> head cleaning >print test page.

How to chang ink


Hello,

When it is time to replace an ink cartridge in your HP inkjet printer, you will receive a pop up message on your computer screen. Replacing an ink cartridge is just part of owning an inkjet printer, and a tradeoff with the high quality imaging you are able to achieve on an HP inkjet. It is not something a professional needs to do; just follow these simple instructions to complete the change and get right back to printing.

  1. Allow your inkjet printer to run entirely out of ink. Unless the quality of your images is suffering, there is no problem with letting your ink run low.
  2. Open the printer door. It should fold from the top down toward the tray. When it is open, it should expose the inner workings of the printer.
  3. Press the change cartridge button. It is at the top of the printer next to the power button.
  4. Pull on the green top of the inkjet ink cartridge and remove it up and out of its holder. Do this gently so the printer is not damaged in the process.
  5. Recycle the empty inkjet cartridge or have it refilled at an ink refilling center.
  6. Carefully remove the tape from the refilled or new inkjet ink cartridge and insert the cartridge in the same orientation as the one you removed.
  7. Push on the green top until the cartridge snaps into place, press the cartridge change button and close the printer door.
Good luck.

I've replaced ALL FOUR cartridges and still says "No cartridge"


Well, My thoughts here would be the printhead not reading the cartridges anymore so that tells me right there aslo you can get print head cleaner and dip them into that for 2 hours and let dry and try again or buy new printheads, this proceedure is not simple and can be very fustrating so the choice is yours at this point.

I hope my solution finds a Very Helpful in your ratings today!

I changed the ink in my officejet 7130 and it still says the cartridge needs to be replaced. When I check ink supply it reads that the cartridge is full. It wont align or clean the print heads.


If things were working before you replaced the new ink cartridges, the chances are that the new cartridges are defective. This is common for aftermarket and refilled cartridges. The aftermarket ink has probably clogged the nozzles. The simple solution is to replace the cartrtridges with OEM cartridges, run the nozzle cleaning utility an number of times (suggest 3x) and align the printheads. This should clear your printer problem.
Please let me know if this works for you. Thanks.

Printer produces a poor copy


remove cartridges , take a q-tip w/alcohol and clean out ink ports where they drop ink onto the paprer the ports could be clogged with dry ink , thus preventing the new ink from reaching the paper. after you clean out the ink ports re-install the cartridges, and do alignment proceedures again this time color should be restored

Epson C46, changed coloured ink, won't print flashing red light


If the red light is flashing by itself, it means the printer thinks a cartridge is low on ink. Have a look at what the Status Monitor thinks (right click the printer Icon in the bottom Right-Hand corner and select Ink Monitor). This will show which cartridge it is. If it's the new colour cartridge, it means the cartridge is faulty (then replace it), or it is a refilled cartridge that hasn't had it's chip reset to "full". For this you will need a chip resetter, available on E-Bay very cheaply. If it's the black cartridge then replace it.

If both green and red lights are flashing, it usually means the Waste Ink Pads in your printer are saturated with ink and the waste ink "protection" counter has exceeded its limit. You can restore your printer to a working condition immediately by using the SSC utility - download from:

http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml

Install it, and double click the ssc printer icon in the bottom right corner (System Tray). Choose Configuration and set your printer type (C4x), then close the ssc window. Now right click the ssc icon in the sytem tray and choose Protection Counter. You should see that the current count is above the limit; then choose reset to set it to zero. You will need to fib about having changed the waste ink pads! Turn the printer off then back on again. This will stop the lights flashing and restore normal operation.

However, remember that eventually ink will overflow from the waste ink area and make a dreadful mess, so you must change the waste ink pads before this happens. This requires the disassembly of the printer.

If you decide to have a go at replacing the ink pads yourself, report back and I will provide further help. It is a pretty simple job once someone explains how to get the case apart!

Canon pixma ip4000 color not printing correctly with full inks


In both cases be sure using correct ink. Use of generic ink can lead to leakage of catrridge seats do to crossion from inferrior ink quality (per Cannon). Be sure ink in proper locations - see manual. Run the maintenance proceedures: cleaning then print nozzle pattern. If all colors are not proper after two or three cleanings, perform deep cleaning. Print nozzle pattern after each cleaning. This should clear up problem. If not, print head may need replacement.

I had contacted Canon to resolve my problem.

Through the technician I am informed that the printer has to be sent back for service as one of the 4 pins on print-head print has dropped off leaving only 3pins that is why the error code U043 simply occur which is why replacing another new ink cartridge does not resolve the issue.

I have understand from him that:-
  1. Most of the time when error code flash up, usually are due to the unique feature that Canon has build on the ink cartridges not properly done which resulted to be faulty. Canon's purpose is to prevent the usage of 3rd party ink cartridges. Of course this causes inconvenient to users, but if users are not using 3rd party ink cartridges, once detected is Canon's ink cartridge issue, do contact Canon, they will provide house call for 1 to 1 exchange for the ink cartridge.
  2. Other times if by replacing new ink cartridge the problem for error code still occurs, it might be the pin on the print-head has lost the alighting, this will require for Canon to service to alight back the pin on print-head in order for the printer to operate smoothly again.
  3. If your problem is like mine, inputting the ink cartridge into the wrong slot, well I guess only have to contact Canon as the printer's components used seem to be highly sensitive, by input the wrong slot would have caused scatches on the pin, well it is better to have the ink cartridge remove by the expert than to DIY. (Maybe check with your own nearby technician if by any lucks they can help to rescue your printer, which I hope Canon does not have further enhancement on their printer with other Unique features to prevent users from using 3rd party technical support.)
I hope the above information will help all the troubled Canon printer users as I notice from previous search on this website, there are other users having problem like ink cartridge is only partial used, but error code appear to check ink cartridge, maybe trying to taking out and putting back, it works sometime and problem occurs again, by replace a new ink cartridge will help as the partial used one would be faulty already, and do call up Canon to report the issue and they will exchange a new ink cartridge for the faulty partial used cartridge.

Dell 942 all-in-one printer problems.


The problem is simple. Try inserting your old in cartridges. If the old ones work, the ink cartridges are defective. Contact Dell and get these replaced.
Otherwise the printer has a problem. try cleaning the metal contacts of the ink cartridge and the ink carrier.

Ink replaced, but sows nothing


A yellow exclamation mark in any application means the attatched item to it is usually in error state, but you say the printer works fine. Most people would tell you to not touch what is working!!! But leaving anything showing error risks further confusion and problems. I think that you problem is probably very simple. Do you know hao to reset your ink levels. Read your manual that came with disk or go to the onscreen help. You may find this will remove the issue. If it does not, then you may have a corrupted driver etc, and may need to uninstall the printer, and reinstall it again. Good luck.
