It may be a bad contact between the cartridges chip and the contacts inside the printer.
They can be cleaned very gently inside, by using a cotton bud, and suitable cleaning fluid, such as either foam spray cleaner, or a professional product like SERVICOL.
You will only need a tiny amount to clean off the contacts if that is the problem. they sometimes just get fussy when a small amount of ink residue, or dust, gets in the way.
If the ink is still reported as low, it may be an actual fault in the printer unfortunately, stopping it reading the ink amount correctly.
But by far the most common problem is just needing a clean inside.
Good luck.

Incompatible print cartridge - tri color


Here's two possible solutions...you can replace the cartridge as some times they can be prone to electric/electronic problem which renders them useless. You may be able to return the defect cartridge.

Option two is to reset the printer by following these steps:
1)Make sure your cartridges are installed.
2)Unplug the power to the printer and wait about 20 seconds
3)Press and hold the # and 3 keys (while unplugged)
4)Plug the power back in (you should see a reset message on the machine)
5)Release the # and 3 keys and follow the prompts

Put new cartridge in but still says low


First off, make sure none of the color cartridges are also low. Then run whatever print utilities came with the printer. I believe you should be looking for the "printer maintenance" feature.

After installing re-filled ink cartridges, both color and back & white, the printer message that shows ink level still shows low level ink? How do we resolve?


Hello,

Try this procedure:
1. Open printer lid so cartridges move to center of carriage.
2. Lift clamp and remove black or color cartridge from the holder.
3. Place cartridge on table with copper contact strip facing you.
4. Carefully place a strip of clear plastic tape over the four contacts on the upper left corner of the cartridge.
5. Reinstall cartridge in printer and close lid. Wait until cartridge returns to parking position.
6. Open lid and remove cartridge again. Remove tape from left side and place tape over four contacts at upper right corner of cartridge.
7. Reinstall cartridge in printer and close lid. Wait until cartridge returns to parking position again.
8. Open lid again, remove cartridge, remove tape.
9. Reinstall cartridge and close lid.
Printer will now recalibrate. Once the process is complete the ink level meter should be reading full again.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

Dell printer model# A940 50c error


Test your cartridges.

Remove the color ink cartridge then lower the cover of your printer. If the error message displays again, replace the black cartridge with a new one (or return the new one). Reinstall the color cartridge and remove the black ink cartridge then lower the cover. If the error message displays again, replace the color cartridge with a new color cartridge.
Note: My manual indicated that the printer might have detected a short circuit in a cartridge. I returned a month old black cartridge got a new one and my printer is working fine now. Good luck.

Ink cartridge problem


Complete the following instructions:
  1. Power off your All-in-One.
  2. Use both hands to lift up the scanner unit until the scanner support holds it open.
  3. Turn the All-in-One on. The print cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position, unless the All-in-One is busy.
  4. Remove the color print cartridge.
  5. Lower the scanner unit until it is completely closed.
  6. If the error message reappears, replace the black print cartridge with a new print cartridge.
    If it does not repeat steps 1-3 and then go to step 7.
  7. Reinstall the color cartridge and remove the black print cartridge.
  8. Lower the scanner unit until it is completely closed.
  9. If the error message occurs again, replace the color cartridge.
  10. If an error message reappears, repeat steps 1-3 and reinstall both print cartridges.
  11. Lower the scanner unit until it is completely closed.
  12. If you receive the error message again, replace both cartridges.

Out of toner........ but not really.....


Print a Supplies Status page to see the actual pages printed...

To print the Supplies Status page from the printer, on the printer control panel, select
Reports Menu, Supplies Status, and then Print Supplies Status page.

If the page count from the Supplies Status page indicates that the toner should not be in need of replacement then you have a bad cartridge. Actually, the cartridge is probably fine but the chip on the cartridge has got a problem. Return the cartridge to O.D. and get another one. Unfortunately, chips that don't work properly in not all that unusual so HP has a pretty easy return policy.

Hope this helps.
