SOURCE: Printer will not print black, but will not let me replace black cartridge

Had the same problem but this worked for me. To force a cartridge change, press and hold down the PAPER FEED button for at least 5 seconds as suggested here:

http://esupport.epson-europe.com/ViewArticle.aspx?lng=en-GB&kbid=313630&data=qBjAbS6NcI3fNMgp8+fHGGs5vImpFwyM

I then changed the black cartridge, even though I hadn't used much ink from the old cartridge and the computer was showing it as three quarters full.

SOURCE: ink cartridge problem! The following ink cartridges appear to be missing or damaged.

Solution :
1. clean the ink cartridge contacts both in the printer and the cartridge with a lint free cloth or a cotton swab. and try inserting the ink cartridges again. if it wont work proceed to step 2.
2. unplug the power cord at the back of the printer
3. press and hold # and 3 keys at the same time and plug the power cord back in. Do not release the two keys. wait until the printer would say "partial nvram reset" or anything that says "reset". if this still would not resolve the problem
4. do the same process as 2 & 3 but instead of # and 3 try # and 6. instead of saying "partial nvram reset" it should say "semi-full nvram reset". and if it would not work better go to an onsite technician. but if your printer if brand new return it to the retailer and exchange it. but before you do that try calling HP technician they would instruct you to the things i have given you. Just tell them what you have had done and asked them to replace the ink cartridges. This are the informations the agent would ask you about the ink cartridge
part number and also the expiration date.
try to ask for a replacement first if it would not resolve it. then go to a technician. I could not assure you that a technician could fix it because i have troubleshoot this kind of problems and there are alot of printer parts that needs to be fixed. Usually i suggest my clients to buy a new printer instead

SOURCE: I just replaced black ink cartridge and snapped all cartridges back in place and recharged the printer now it wont recognize the black ink cartridge even though it was just replaced

Try wiping the copper contacts on the new cartridge with a dustfree cloth dampened with some alcohol. Dry thoroughly before reinstalling.

    I have just replaced all 4 ink cartridges, but printer refuses to admit that any have ink


    This can happen to cartridges with attached print heads. All cartridges are weighed and tested before leaving the factory so lack of ink isn't the problem. It usually has to do with the print head of the cartridge not having any ink to feed it. This happens because cartridges are kept flat or upside down for weeks or months before being used and the ink settles away from the print head. The easiest remedy is to open the box and stand the cartridge upright for a few minutes before using. Then get a damp paper towel, fold it into quarters and sit the cartridge print head down onto it. Hold the cartridge down to the damp paper towel for three minutes. This will help pull the ink out of the print heads, priming them and getting them ready to print. Finally, install the cartridge into your printer and print a few test pages.

    Ink cartridges cannot be recognized in canon printer


    Hello!
    Remove the cartridges and gently wipe the cartridge contacts with a dry cloth, then put them back in. Then, hold the "resume" button for 10 seconds for each cartridge, that should reset them.
    If that doesn't work, one of your cartridges (sadly) needs to be replaced.

    My HP photosmart C4200 ALL-in-One series is telling me is telling me that my print cartridge is missing or not detected, I just barely replaced the ink.


    Hello,

    Below is a partial entry of the help document at HP. The complete text can be found by clicking on this link here.

    If you have already read and completed these steps, please notify me that you have by using the Text Area Comment Box below. Proivde me with any thing else you have already tried. Lastly, do you have a manual for your printer in digital format that you can place on your PC and refer to? I can post one here for you if you need it.

    Essentially, there is no easy Trick to clearing this issue. The most common error made by users it in replacing both cartridges at the same time. Each cartridge should be replaced individually. Once completed the printer will want to execute a print head alignment test. This print out will include instructions on selecting the numbered lines that line up most exactly. Then you would enter the corresponding number.

    Bypassing or interrupting this alignment test after replacing cartridges will cause error messages such as yours. So, if you did this out of ignorance or confusion, remove each cartridge one at a time using the method descrbed below. When both have been removed and reinstalled and the alignment process completed you should be error free. Should you still receive this error, remove and clean each cartridge using the method described below, one cartridge at a time.

    If after completing all the steps below, you still receive the error message, your printer has a larger problem that is internal hardware related. You can either replace the printer or have it serviced by HP. Most people opt to replace the printer as an error such as this at the internal hardware level usually indicates that the printer has reached the end of its usable life span. If this is happening prematurely, have it serviced under warranty. Printer warranties are usually one year from HP. If you purchased using a credit card you may have an extended warranty. Check with your card company right away for information on any extended warranty you have from using your Credit Card.

    If you have any further questions, please ask me using the comment box below.

    Solution one: Remove and reinsert the ink cartridges
    1. Turn the product on.
    2. Make sure to have letter or A4 unused, plain, white paper loaded in the input tray.
    3. Open the ink cartridge door.
      NOTE: Make sure that the carriage holding the ink cartridge moves to the right. If it does not move to the right, turn the product off. If it is a new product, make sure all the packaging material is removed. Close the ink cartridge door and then turn the product on again. The carriage should move to the right. Figure 1: Opening the ink cartridge door c01333689.jpg CAUTION: The product must be turned on before the ink cartridge door is opened. If the product is off when the ink cartridge door is opened for access to the ink cartridges, the product will not release the cartridges. The product can be damaged if the ink cartridges are not docked safely before removal.
    4. Wait until the carriage is idle and silent, and then lightly press down on an ink cartridge to release it. The error message should indicate the problem cartridge by displaying an icon that represents it.
      • The tri-color ink cartridge is in the slot on the left.
      • The black or photo ink cartridge is in the slot on the right.
      Figure 2: Pressing down on an ink cartridge to release it c01333690.jpg 1 - Ink cartridge slot for the tri-color print cartridge 2 - Ink cartridge slot for the black and photo ink cartridges
    5. Pull the ink cartridge toward you out of its slot.
    6. Make sure the tape has been removed from the cartridge. If the tape has not been removed, remove it now. Figure 3: Removing the tape c00880894.jpg CAUTION: Do not touch the copper-colored contacts or reattach the tape.
    7. Hold the cartridge with the HP logo on top.
    8. Reinsert the ink cartridge into its slot by gently pushing the upper part of the ink cartridge forward until it clicks into the socket. CAUTION: When installing the ink cartridge, do not rest your hand on top of the product for leverage. This might cause the carriage to lift out of position. Figure 4: Incorrectly grasping the top of the product for leverage c01333691.jpg Figure 5: Pushing the cartridge in firmly c00853118.jpg
      • When installing the tri-color ink cartridge, slide it into the left slot.
      • When installing a black, photo, or gray photo ink cartridge, slide it into the right slot.
      Figure 6: Tri-color cartridge in the left cartridge slot and black cartridge in the right cartridge slot c00880896.jpg
    9. Close the ink cartridge door.
    If the error message persists, continue to the next solution.

    To replace the ink cartridges

    1. Make sure the HP All-in-One is turned on.
    2. Open the ink cartridge door by lifting from the front center of the device, until the door locks into place.
    3. Squeeze the tab below an ink cartridge to release the latch inside the HP All-in-One, and then lift the latch. If you are replacing the black ink cartridge, lift the latch on the far left.

    4. Pull the ink cartridge toward you out of its slot to remove it.
    5. Remove the new ink cartridge from its packaging, and then, holding it by the handle, slide the ink cartridge into the empty slot. Make sure that you insert the ink cartridge into the slot that has the same shaped icon and color as the one you are installing.
    6. Press down on the gray latch until it clicks into place.
    7. Repeat steps 2 through 5 for each ink cartridge you are replacing.

    Pixma 4200 compatible ink cartridge problem help


    The ink detection is a critical function of the printer.

    Ink actually acts as a lubricant for the heads, and running (Printing) without ink is equavalent to driving a car without oil.

    I.E. It will seize eventually....

    Hopefully you didn't print much without the ink, and your heads are still in good shape...

    Here is a chip reset procedure....

    With the original chip now attached to the compatible cartridge (you may need double sided tape to get the chip to stick well to the cartridge), and with the cartridge now in the printer, Press and hold the Reset/OK Button for 5 seconds to reset the chips.
    1. The "Ink Low" dialog box will pop up (similar to photo 1 below)
    2. Continue to print until the "ink has run out" dialog box pops up (similar to photo 2 Below) Click "OK" to continue to print.
    3. The "Ink Low" dialog box may reappear, if so repeat the first 2 steps
    4. Then the "once empty" dialog box will pop up (similar to photo 3 Below) Click "Yes" to continue to print
    5. The "Not Liable" dialog box will pop up (similar to photo 4 below). Click "Yes" to continue to print
    6. Continue to print until the "remaining level of ink" dialog box pops up (similar to photo 5 Below) Click "OK" to continue to print
    7. Another dialog box will pop up with the "press and hold the Resume" or "press and hold the Paper Feed" button (similar to photo 6). Press and hold the "STOP/RESET" button (for Canon MP Series) or "PAPER FEED" button (for Canon IP Series) for 5 seconds. DO NOT Click "Back" or "Cancel Printing"
    8. The "Ink Monitor" dialog box will appear and the printer will continue to print. (similar to photo 7) In the event that that the "press and hold the Resume " dialog box pops up again, Press and hold the Paper Feed Button or Stop/Reset Button for 5 seconds

    Waste ink full


    This step is a "reset" step for the Canon CLI8 cartridges. The original Canon CLI8 cartridges have a memory chip on the back of the cartridge, which sends a signal to the printer when the cartridge is empty. Your printer won't be able to determine how much ink is in the compatible cartridges, but you can easily monitor the ink level by noticing the ink level drop in the cartridge as you print (the cartridges are see-through), or by noticing low ink output on the printed pages when you run out of ink. The "reset" procedure below is the best procedure we know of to date to allow your printer to use Uni-Kit cartridges which offer a tremendous savings over the Original Canon products.

    With the original chip now attached to the compatible cartridge (you may need double sided tape to get the chip to stick well to the cartridge), and with the cartridge now in the printer, Press and hold the Reset/OK Button for 5 seconds to reset the chips.

    1. The "Ink Low" dialog box will pop up (similar to photo 1 below)
    2. Continue to print until the "ink has run out" dialog box pops up (similar to photo 2 Below) Click "OK" to continue to print.
    3. The "Ink Low" dialog box may reappear, if so repeat the first 2 steps
    4. Then the "once empty" dialog box will pop up (similar to photo 3 Below) Click "Yes" to continue to print
    5. The "Not Liable" dialog box will pop up (similar to photo 4 below). Click "Yes" to continue to print
    6. Continue to print until the "remaining level of ink" dialog box pops up (similar to photo 5 Below) Click "OK" to continue to print
    7. Another dialog box will pop up with the "press and hold the Resume" or "press and hold the Paper Feed" button (similar to photo 6). Press and hold the "STOP/RESET" button (for Canon MP Series) or "PAPER FEED" button (for Canon IP Series) for 5 seconds. DO NOT Click "Back" or "Cancel Printing"
    8. The "Ink Monitor" dialog box will appear and the printer will continue to print. (similar to photo 7) In the event that that the "press and hold the Resume " dialog box pops up again, Press and hold the Paper Feed Button or Stop/Reset Button for 5 seconds
