In this printer the actual printing head is in the cartridge. The printer communicated with it thru an array of pins situated on the back of the cartridge carrier that make contact with the pad on the cartridge. From there the connection is done with a thin. flat data cable that plugs on the mainboard.
You get that message because the connection on one of the cartridges isn't going correctly: either one of the pins from the array are dirty and/or bent or the data cable is out of its connector. In the worst case scenario the chip that controls the communication has failed - in that case it will be cheaper to replace the printer as a whole with a new one than to repair it.
Take out the cartridges and inspect the contact pin arrays (one for each cartridge) clean them with alcohol and straighten the pins that look out of shape - use a fine screwdriver for that. If that doesn't fixes it then it's probably the cable - you will have to completely dismantle the printer to reseat it. If this doesn't fixes it then the chip is dead, and so is the printer: time for a new one.

Hi.

Try cleaning the metal plate contacts in the ink carriage. The contacts can be cleaned using cotton and isopropyl alcohol.

If that does not fix the problem, then either contact or wiring at the back of the printhead are broken. In that case the printer must be repaired.

Try first cleaning the ink carriage contacts.

    Try disconnecting power to reset the printer.

    Checking visually the wiring and contacts is not a valid test. The contacts are tested using a multimeter set n Ohms to check if there is continuity (circuit closed) between the contacts inside the ink carriage and the wires at the back of the print head. In such a device you do not see a broken solder joint inside the print head. A similar test is made on contacts from print head to main board.

    I see that you passed the question to a different expert.

    That also results in negative feedback given to the expert assisting you.

    Goodbye.

I keep getting the message "unsupported right cartridge" on my printer. I have checked the installation a thousand times. Please help


Message signals that the right cartridge is not correctly recognized.
May have several causes:
1. Cartridge model is wrong (not a Lexmark color cartridge 33 or 35). In this case one must replace the cartridge with the printer.
2.
You use the correct cartridge but it is not recognized correctly. Try to clean the contacts on the cartridge and the printer with a soft towel or cloth.
3. If after you have cleaned the contacts you received the same message means that the cartridge is defective and must replace it with a new one.

My HP Officejet 4500 keeps telling my to align my printer cartridges and I have done it several times. After I align them and print something it requires me to align them again.


Try removing the cartridges, closing the printer, and disconnect the power. Let sit for at least 10 minutes, then hook up the power, wait until it stops making noises, the reinstall the cartridges, black first, then color, and if the alignment comes up again, press cancel. This should remove the error.

Acts like it is printing but does not apply ink has new cartridge and goes though the motions of printing but does not seem to be getting the ink spit signal to the cartridge.


I would try another cartridge especially if it is a refilled one. I don't think there is one "ink spit" signal, rather several so one would not stop it. In any case, probably not the printer but the cartridge that is failing. The refilled cartridges somehow bypass the ink available signal from the cartridge and the printer thinks everything is ok, sending firing signals to an empty cartridge. That's why I try another or try this one in another printer, if possible. If it is something wrong in the printer, a new printer is cheaper than the repair would be.

Print head failure signal


Error 5 is an ink cartridge error. Cleaning the print head and electrical contacts on the cartridge does not fix this error. You need to get a new cartridge to fix the problem.

Epson r265 keeps printing purple pictures I have installed new cartridges and done a head clean several timesbut i just won't budge


You probably need to purge the yellow ink channel. Use the cleaner found in refill kits and gently force the cleaner through the channel where the yellow ink cartridge attaches.

After cleaning, you will need to "charge" that ink channel either by many cleanings or by forcing the yellow ink into the channel before installing the cartridge.

Printer won't process new catridges. These cartridges have been refilled.


Did you install the original cartridge? if you have the old empty cartridge, try to install it and check the error is empty cartridge..if so the problem is the newly installed cartridge. try to buy the new original one.

Printer will not print


More info needed here. Are any lights on or flashing? Have you tried going through the cartidge instsallation process again (but just taking out and putting back the same cartridges when told to put in new ones)? Are the unrecognised cartridges genuine Epson or compatibles? Have you tried putting genuine Epson cartridges in (even empty ones will do) to see if they are recognised? A response to these question will permit me to give you much more specific help.
