Question about HP Deskjet 5440 InkJet Photo Printer

Open Question

I replaced the black ink cartridge (#92) in my HP5440 printer with an Office Depot brand re-manufactured/refilled cartridge. After installing the new cartridge I printed a test page and a half dozen pages of text and everything seemed to be fine. After that each time I have attempted to print the top third to half of the page seems to be fine but on the rest of the page the print fades out to nothing. I have removed, cleaned and re-installed the cartridge and I get the same results. Any idea's other than replacing the cartridge with an HP brand cartridge.

SOURCE: HP L7590 black ink printing poorly even with new HP cartridge

I have had the same problem It is the print head not the cartridge If your printer is still under warranty have the printhead(s) replaced if not Open the unit where the print heads are and hold the OK button for 5 seconds. The Print head carriage will move to the left

Carefully remove the KY (Black & Yellow) Print head with a cotton swab and alcohol clean the contacts and replace the printhead. If this does not work remove the printhead and then with a spray bottle spray the nozzle area on the bottom (DO NOT TOUCH THE NOZZLES AS THEY WILL BE DESTROYED) HP techs have told me this will void any warranty so act accordingly I use a printhead cleaning solution available from most any online ink supplier

Replace the printhead after it has dried out (less than a minute). The printer will then go through an alignment cycle and should print I had to do this several times before the print head performed as it should

This is an example of why 2nd class refills are junk. I would try to gently clean the printer out. While a lot of people disagree with this advice, a mixture of 90% alcohol in a tiny pipit works well. Then use some lint free q-tips. Most cartridges have electronic chips on them that report the status of the cartridge. Refilled ink cartridges may have bad or defect chips.

Canon mx700 not recognizing cartridges


I suspect that your have a damaged refilled cartridge. Also, you may have a clogged nozzle. Canon printers are sensitive to the quality of the ink used in the cartridges and refill ink sometimes does not meet the manufacturer's specifications. You can check this by inserting a new OEM cartridge, running the deep cleaning utillity three times and a aligning the printhead. The other problem may be that the electronic chip on the refilled cartridge may either be damaged or blocked by dried ink. In any case, you need to discard the failing cartridge and replace it.
Let me know if this solves the problem. Thanks.

With this type of printer you need to have a full black cartridge to print black and white. The new Canon BCI-24 black cartridge from Staples is only $8.29. These cartridges are even cheaper from refillers. I recommend Cartridge World or Office Depot for printer cartridge refills.

My HP 6500 only prints yellow and black. I refilled all three color cartridges and only the yellow is working. Any ideas?


I own a printer cartridge refilling store and I can't refill these cartridges yet because the chip needs to be replaced/reset and we don't have the technology to do it yet. The reason why only the refilled yellow is working is probably because the chip still thinks there's ink in the cartridge. However, your yellow cartridge will most likely soon not print as well. The other cartridges the chips are telling the printer they are empty. Printer manufacturers like to do this kind of thing so you have to spend the extra money to buy their ink. I would not recommend even trying to refill these yourself until you see reputable retailers with refills (i.e.- Cartridge World, Office Depot, etc).

Did a black print cartridge refill at Costco. It


You used one of the worst refill services available. There's a reason they have a flat rate for refills, they use non cartridge specific inks, don't clean out the cartridge, and have a machine not a person do the thinking and the work for them. You will have similar failure on cartridges refilled by Walgreens, Office Max, and cheap online refills. I suggest Cartridge World first then Office Depot for refills. They have high quality standards and recycle your cartridges by refilling them.

Ink cartridge refill


You can't refill these cartridges yourself. Sure you can get ink and inject it in, but your printer remembers the serial number of each cartridge and how many pages you've printed with it. Because it remembers this information it turns off the cartridge electronics to prevent the use of refills. I would try to get refills for the black but not the color cartridge. I own a Cartridge World ink refilling store and we have a high return rate on the color cartridges. It seems the printers are extremely finicky about color refills. If you get a black refill and your printer won't print with it, exchange it for another one because you happened to get a cartridge with the same serial number as the last one you had. I recommend Cartridge World refills, then Office Depot brand refills.

INSERTED NEW COLOR CARTRIDGE 24 ERROR INCORRECT CARTRIDGE


Yes, you should return this cartridge to Office Depot. I own a cartridge refilling store and I've had a couple customers that buy original manufacturer cartridges that don't work in their machines. What I suspect is happening is that the manufacturers are making their printers stringently check the cartridges to make sure they are not refills and that this stringency is also occasionally kicking out their original cartridges.

Printer error


I've encountered this same problem, it could be that the ink cartridges that you have installed in the printer are either running low or out of ink.


I had the problem also and found that after I swapped out my cartridges with new ones that I purchased the blinking yellow light on the Alarm and the black and color cartridge.


If you do not want to purchase new ink cartridges to correct the problem you can can open the lid to your multifunction and remove the ink cartridges and place them in separate plastic sandwich bags and take them to any office supply store; Office Depot, Office Max, Staples and tell an employee there that you have run out of the ink and that you would want to have the cartridges refilled.

I actually went to an Office Max in Houston with my cartridges and they told me it would be cheaper to have them refilled than to purchase a new set of cartridges; that after I looked online and compared what they charged for new cartridges actually saved me $40 to have the one's I already had refilled.

Lexmark X2600 refill problem


many printer manufacturers put something (a chip?) in the circuit of the cartridge to prevent refilled ones from being recognized by the printer....when the "factory" cartridge is empty, the only way for the printer to see a full cartridge again is by using a "new" factory one, ...i guess it's the big name brands way of making sure you buy "their" ink and not use refulls.
