Can install cartridge message mean current cartridge needs to be replaced?


This error means that the printer is not able to connect properly to the cartridge's chip!
Inspect the cartridge, every cartridge have a chip,
Clean it with isopropyl alcohol, or normal alcohol (But it needs more time to dry)
Clean the printer contacts that connects to the chip on the cartridge with isopropyl alcohol.
Reinsert the cartridge into the printer
and see if something change.
Is the problem still remain, probably the cartridge have a bad quality chip.

Error message says "Remove and check cartridge on right" Its a new cartridge I've been using for a few weeks and it has been working fine. I have removed cartridge several times and even cleaned contacts....


The electronics on the cartridge have gone bad. Sometimes cartridges short. Take the cartridge back to where you bought it (they should give you credit for any remaining ink) and buy a new cartridge.

Message on the display is " cartridge error" refer to device documentaion for trouble shooting..and there is no documentaion available .. please guide thank you. javed Akram.Saudi Arabia


Hello there:<br />Whenever you recieve this type of error it is referring to the cartridge needing cleaned. so what you will need to do is remove both of the cartridges and then turn off the device then use a q-tip and some rubbing alcohol and clean the area that the cartridge sits in really well this is where most of the ink will clog up the sensors for the cartridges now after this has been done than clean the cartridges really good too .<br />Next reinstall the cartritges and restart the unit if there is still la a error you any have to get new cartridges you will also get this error if your cartridge is low on ink or you have tampered with any of the protective covering that covers the refill holes on these cartridges ok and if the cartridge is not the exact carrtridge it will get a error too ok so make sure you have the right one and it is in the right slot <br />Best regards mike <br /> <!-- from fixya rte -->

Full cartridges = empty :S


Solution 1

Once you remove the ink cartridge from the printer, you can make use of the Isopropyl Alcohol, and put at maximum of 10 drops in the ink cartridge. You will find a hole there, in which the ink usually runs from the ink cartridge to the head of the printer. When done, you can put the cartridge back in the printer and run the auto cleaning process from the printer's option in order to clean the blocked holes of the cartridge. I would suggest you to run print tests first and once you are satisfied with the results, you can start using the printer normally.

If you want to go further:

* Remove the tank.
* Connect a hose directly on the inlet ink.
* Locate the sensor of reservoir and press it to make as if a cartridge is available.
* Close the cover of the print head and clean the head by injecting air (under pressure) through the pipe.
* Replace the tank up and do a test print.
* Repeat the procedure several times if the nozzles are clogged.


Solution 2

Using a syringe and some alcohol to unblock the holes can also be very effective.

* Step 1: Remove the cartridge from the computer
* Step 2: With the syringe, take in some alcohol and put in some drops in the tiny hole where the ink runs from the ink cartridge to the head of the printer.
* Step 3: When done, put the cartridge (only where the tiny holes are found) in some warm water. If some ink runs in the water, it means that the holes have been unblocked.
* Step 4: Hence, let the alcohol act for 20 minutes on the ink before putting the cartridge back in the printer.
* Step 5: Run some test prints before using the printer normally.


Note: I would suggest you to do an automatic head cleaning each time before any printing task. Hence it will reduce the risk of having the print heads blocked by dried ink.

I have replace all of my ink jet cartridges and it sees the black and magenta, but I am still getting the ink empty error message for cyan and yellow. I have removed and reinstalled atleast 20 times,...


did you make sure to remove the stickers covering the print heads? double check. other than that you can clean the heads with a qtip and isopropyl alcohol, they may be dirty with old ink and not able to see the new cartridge properly.

Color cartridge stopped working.


Try cleaning the contacts on both the ink cartridge and the carriage with a cotton swab dipped in alcohol. If that does not work, the nozzles on the color ink cartridge may be clogged with dry ink.

There is a nozzle cleaning utility in the Lexmark Solutions Center. Use that to clean the nozzles of your ink cartridges. The Lexmark Solutions Center is installed on your computer. You can find it in the Windows Start Menu under "All Programs" in a folder marked "Lexmark".

If your printer has been sitting without use for more than a few weeks, the nozzles may be too clogged with dry ink to clean by conventional means.

It nothing works, replace the color ink cartridge.

Remove and check color cartridge


I cleaned mine with alcohol and Q-tip and then shook it 25 times to insure that the ink was penetrating the application lines. My hunch is it first got dirty, and then dried up on the exterior prevent additional ink from leaving the cartridge.

Print cartridge error


Press either the menu or setup button.
There should be a maintenance section where you can do eletronic print cartridge cleaning and print head alignments and calabrations.
Some of them can be done at the computer if you access the driver properties.
You can clich the print queue and look around there also for print head cleaning and some other diagnostic procedures.
If those don't resolve the problem, remove the cartridge and take a fuzzless cloth dampened very slightly with alcohol and clean the contacts to the print cartridge.
PLEASE REMOVE THE POWER when cleaning though.

Remove and check color cartridge


try this. worked for me. when installing the cartridge, put one finger under the cartridge and hold upward pressure as you closed the green plastic cover. problem is the pins on the cartridge and the pins on the printer are not aligning properly by relying on the spring to do it. this will help to align the pins and should make it work.
