Have you removed the protective tape on the nozzle and copper contacts of the printers? while the printer is on, remove all the cartridges. now unplug the power cable from the rear of the printer. the printer would power off. now press the power button 10 times. now plug back in the power cable and replace all the cartridges. now try to print.

I've encountered an Incorrect Yellow message upon turning on the printer HP2820


The printer would only display messages of functions commonly as ink shortages. For example, color printers with encountering ink shortge would display a message. However, continuing to print would produce least impressive cooration where for multicolored characters tend to appear in yellow. Also, printers with ink malfunctions require inspection of cartridges, ribbons, and compartments for mal alllignments. Readjusting the ink compartments would request performing test print sheets as reallignment check. At which situation, a continued malfunction would be detected as diagnosable by computer popup messages. Refer to the printer user guide. Good luck

I have a Brother MFC 3340CN and 1940CN,fax,print,copier I was working fine and then all at one message was yellow out of ink please replace and start again. It has a brand knew yellow ink cartiage in it...


The ink that is given to you when you buy a new machine is not the same as if you went out and bought ink. The "starter" ink cartridges are not filled completely (that is a marketing gimmick to get you to buy more quickly). When you say "NEW" do you mean "new, never been used", or "new, just got it last week"?


If it's never been used, be sure that you have removed the protective tape from that cartridge. If it's been removed then the cartridge its self could have a problem or the machine could be at fault (not correctly reading the ink). You choices are to return it to where you got it, or buy a yellow cartridge and replace it.


If it was working and stopped after a very short time (a week or two) I would get a new yellow and try it.


For your sake I hope it's the protective tape was forgotten, it happens quite often.

My mfc240c says to replace the yellow ink cartridge but I don't want to spend money on that if the 'light bulb' is ruined. When I turn on the machine, I don't see any light for scanning or copying. ...


By the "light bulb," do you mean the scanner lamp? That lamp should only turn on when you are actually scanning, faxing, or copying a document. You should be able to still use the machine to scan and fax, even with the yellow ink empty. Try scanning a document to see if the scanner lamp comes on.

As far as printing or copying goes, you won't be able to print or copy anything until you replace the yellow ink, even if you try printing in black and white only.

I replaced an ink cartridge because the printer stopped working and showed a message that the old cartridge is empty. However after putting the new one in but the printer still refuses to work and shows...


maybe the cartridge is wrong, release it and clean the electrical contacts, put them again one by one, if notting happen, try this
Solution As the printer operates, it moves ink from the ink cartridges into a printhead reservoir. The printer does not deliver a message when an ink cartridge goes empty, because it still has ink in the reservoir. The printer continues printing until the ink level in the reservoir falls to a first trigger point - then a message appears advising the printer owner to Replace Cartridges Soon . At this point, other cartridges that are empty but have not reached the trigger point are also mentioned in the message, to save trips to the retailer. After the first trigger point, the printer can continue printing until ink levels in the reservoir reach a second trigger point. At the second trigger point there is only enough ink left to perform vital servicing tasks, and a new message appears, saying Ink Cartridges Empty . The options offered depend on the usable inks remaining. If no options are offered, the cartridges indicated must be replaced before printing can continue. The Ink Cartridges Empty options are described in the table below: Ink colors out Option Print mode possible All Cancel None Black

AND

Cyan, Magenta, or Yellow (any or all) Black only Continue with other colors Cyan/Magenta/Yellow mode (composite black)

Text and photo quality will differ from those printed when all colors are available Light Cyan or Light Magenta (either or both) Cyan, Magenta, or Yellow (any or all)

(Black still available) Print with black ink only Grayscale

My office jet L7590 printer suddenly quit on me. It keeps playing a message that says the printhead has a problem


Did you let one of your inks run dry? If so, you need to replace the effected printhead. This model has two, one for black and yellow, and a second for cyan and magenta. If you let the yellow run dry but have tons of black, it still effects the black/yellow printhead. Same with the other, either color going dry makes its printhead go bad. Either printhead will set you back about $75. Easy to remove and replace once you get the new printhead.

Bottom line with this model of printer...DON'T let you inks run dry. A new ink cartridge is $20 vs. $75 for a new printhead.

FYI - This is the most common mistake/problem with this printer. The Inkheads are built to last at least 40,000 prints. That's several years for most of us, that is unless you let the inks run dry.

My yellow ink ran out and I finally replaced all inks this evening. Now, with all new inks, I keep getting a message that the yellow needs to be replaced. Any suggestions? I've turned off the printer,...


I had the same problem with mine but I bought a refill cartridge instead of a new one and went through three refilled cartridges when I found that it was that I needed a brand new one. For some reason, the HP printers and some other printers need to know that you are using the same brand of ink as the printer. if it is another brand it wont except it and it wont let you print anything! So make sure it is a brand new hp brand ;)
