Take out the cartridges and replug them back in.

Also if you go to the printer's property page, there is sometimes maintenance tools like align cartridges.
To get to printer's property page in Windows XP goto Control Panel --> Printers and Faxes --> And right click on your printer and select properties.

This is another very common issue and Lexmark blames the Cartridge, (Non-Lexmark cartridge).

Well, let's try this, Remove all the cartridges, Turn off the machine, let it cool for few minutes (10 minutes will do and don't forget to unplug the power cord and the usb cable).

Now turn back On again, install the cartridges (with no issues) followed by the one which is showing the error, Press and hold down the Cancel button while it's being installed. Release the cancel button when you are done. Now let it show up whatever it wants to...If you are asked to align the cartridge, Keep tapping the cancel button while and don't let it align.

If anything shows up on the computer screen, click more and uncheck the box and then close the window. Now restart the printer and check if the same message reappear or not.

Let me know if the problem persists.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Printer won't recognize cartridge

I had the same problem. I'm not sure but I think I replaced the cartridges when the printer was on because I turned the printer off and removed one of the cartridges. When I turned the printer back on it recognized that cartridge but not the others. I turned the printer off again, rmoved all cartiridges and put them back in when the printer was still off. When I turned the printer on again I had no problems. So...try turning off the printer, rmove all cartridges, then put them back in and restart printer. Hope this works for you .

An online manual here: There is probably a top of form setting which needs to be checked & corrected. I assume you've checked tab/margin settings in your software & printer setup?

Samsung kicked out hp 3in 1 printer already installed

Don't have your HP designated as the default printer (if possible)when you hook up the Samsung. When the Samsung is hooked up it sees the HP is the default printer. Well it can't have that, they discard the HP drivers. What does Samsung care about HP drivers theres only one printer port setup and thats the USB port you have them sharing. So yes you need to get a second cable. Tim
