Printer does'nt work with non H P cartridges

I have recently replaced the original cartridges with non H P ( refilled ) cartridges.Now the printer won't print! The printer screen says - incompatible cartridge(s)-. But if I remove the colour cartridge, the printer will work. How do I make the printer work when the colour cartridge is installed. Or should I throw the H P away and buy a Cannon?

It is pretty clear that you have a defective color cartridge. Return it to your vendor for a replacement. You may have some success cleaning the contacts as shown here, but most likely you need a warranty replacement color cartridge.

I have HP laserjet all in one 2840. got massage replace supplies. replace black ink. massage still there. printer does not work. please help tell me what to do thanks, Troy


Did you purchase a new cartridge or refill? These supplies have a non-resetable chip on them that must be replaced when a cartridge is refilled. If it is an new HP original cartridge, contact HP and have them replace it. If it is a refill, contact whoever you bought it from and get them to replace it.

a refilled cartridge IN NO WAY can lead to printer failure
the ink is the last thing on printer and has no effect to mechanical failures.

Printer does not recognize new ink cartridge


Are you using "refilled" hp cartridges? If so, they may be interpreted as "empty" or a non-hp cartridge if the carrtidge shell was manufactured prior to the recent time that hp began coding the electrics on the same type cartridges. This can also happen if you are using "compatibles". If this is the case, try buying original new hp carts. If that is what you already have, return the cart to the store as defective and as for a replacement.

Recalibrating a refilled black ink cartridge for a photosmart 7960


your printer probably cannot recognize one of both cartridges 
clean the contacts of the cartridges and the contacts of the cartridge carrier  with a wet towel 
if that does nt work your ink cartridge has probably overheated  because air has left in the cartridge after refilling and must be replaced
check here the right way for refilling

Dell 926 printer


Dell cartridge are quite expensive, and refilled and non original cartridge are often not accepted by Dell printer. If you use non original cartridge often you keep getting this message unless you replace both cartridges.
Be also careful also if you use refilled, sometimes refilled can leak all over the inside of your Dell printer right when ink is coming to the end.
In your case try replacing both cartriges at the time, this usually clears the error.
A suggestion: Dell small inkjets are sold at a price often inferior to the cartridge set price, and now you know why, ask the price for a new Lexmark, HP, Epson,Brother, Canon etc. next time you have to replace a cartridge set, it may be worth buying a new printer.
Apart small inkjet sector, Dell produces excellent laser printers, computers, laptops and more.

You can read more opinions on small dell inkjets here or using google.
