First, delete your printer from the computer. Second. Go to the printer's company web page and, download a new and fresh driver to install the printer in your computer. Third. Make sure that the computer's port is configured to your printer. Have a great time!

Printer wont acknowledge ink loading


Make sure you are using genuine Lexmark cartridges. Refilled cartridges won't be able to register ink levels. If you are using original supplies, it could be just a slight cartridge communication error. Try the steps below:
  1. Make sure the printer is on. Open the printer cover.
  2. The carrier should move to its loading position. Open the latch and remove the cartridges.
  3. Close the latch.
  4. Re-brick your printer by pulling out the power supply - black box behind the printer where the power cord is plugged in to, and re-insert after 10 seconds.
  5. When the printer turns on, re-insert the cartridges. Close the printer cover.
  6. Check on your computer if ink level is acknowledged.
  7. Try to print a document to verify that the problem is fixed.

Printer not working. could it be ink. wouldnt it tell me ink is low?moved it to different location printer not used for 6 months, could be inkbutmaybe not.


It could be your ink cartridge or it could be a communication problem between your printer and your computer. Make sure the usb cable is properly connected and secured on the back of the printer and into your computer. Make sure the printer driver is installed on your computer. If all tips/suggestions are met, then it could be a cartridge problem.

How to I change ink on epson printer NX127 I cannot get the cartage out Can you show me the picture of the cartage ink holder with the lid up


First make sure the printer is on, then open the printer cover and the cartridge cover. Then press the Stop button. Assuming the printer has identified a cartridge with low ink, that cartridge will be moved to the replacement position; then the power light will flash. Squeeze the tabs on the ends of the cartridge together and lift it up. Unpack the new cartridge and remove the tape carefully. Then press the new cartridge into place until it clicks.

If more than one cartridge has low ink, the leftmost one will be in the replacement position when the cartridge carrier stops moving. Press Stop again to advance the carrier to put the next low cartridge into the replacement position. Then press Stop again to have the printer move the cartridges to the home position and charge the print head. When the lights go out or stop flashing, close the cartridge cover and the printer cover.

If the cartridges aren't low on ink, then use the Epson printer utility (under the Maintenance tab) to start the process.

For pictures of the Epson printer during ink replacement see: http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?BV_SessionID=@@@@1558177770.1297529968@@@@&BV_EngineID=ccdcademkhmjkgicfngcfkmdhjidfmh.0&cookies=no&infoType=FAQ&oid=150187&prodoid=63088089&foid=157388 .

How to change ink cartridges on an Epson CX 3800


Be sure you have a new ink cartridge before you begin. Once you start replacing a cartridge you must complete all steps in one session.

1. Make sure the Epson CX printer is on.
2 Make sure the document cover is closed, then open the scanner
Caution: Do Not open the scanner when the document cover cover is open.
3. Press and release the " ink " button. The ink cartridge moves to the check position and the
" On " and " ink " lights flash. If one of the cartridges is low or empty, the printer moves the
cartridge to the _ink out mark.
Note: Don't hold down the " ink " button for 3 or more seconds or the printer starts cleaning the print head.
Caution: Do Not move the print head by hand; this may damage the printer, always press the ink
button to move it.
4. Press the " ink " button again
a. If more than one cartridge is low or empty, the next cartridge moves to the_ink out position.
b. If all of the empty or low cartridges have been identified, the print head moves to the ink
cartridge replacement position.
5. Open the cartridge cover.
6. Squeeze the tab at the back of the empty/low cartridge and lift it straight out.
7. Before you open the new ink cartridge package shake it four or five times, then remove it
from the package.
Caution: Do Not remove or tear the label on the cartridge; otherwise ink will leak.
Do Not touch the green chip on the front of the cartridge, this can damage the
ink cartridge.
8. Place the new ink cartridge into the cartridge holder and push it down until it snaps into
place.
a. Replace any other cartridges that need to be replaced.
9. Close the ink cartridge cover and press it until it clicks into place.
10.Close the scanner.
11. Press the " ink " button The print starts charging ink and the " On " light starts flashing. This
takes about one minute. When it's finished the " On " light stops flashing and remains on.
and the " ink " light goes out.
Caution: Never turn off the printer while the " On " light is flashing or you'll waste ink.
Note: If the " ink " light stays on ( not flashing ), the ink cartridge may not be installed correctly.
Press the " ink " button again and reinstall the ink cartridge until it clicks into place.

To solve the printing problem..


# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
# Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
# Continue doing this until it looks clean.
# Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
# Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.

1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.

# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer.

Cannot tell which inkjet color cartridge needs changing


Disregard the monitor information and rely on the printer.

On the left panel of the printer are your indicator lights and buttons. Push the button immediately to the left of the 'ink drop' light [looks like a little tear drop]. Open the cover and the printhead assembly will move to the left and stop. Look very closely and find that little 'ink drop' imprinted into the plastic in the very middle of the printer where the printhead assembly stopped. That 'ink drop' will line up wih the ink cartridge that needs replacing. Push that button on the left again and the printhead assembly will either return to the 'replace' position, or move to the next ink cartridge that needs replacing. Keep pushing that button just once at a time until the printhead assembly identifies all cartridges that need replacing and moves into the 'replace' position. This 'replace' position will be on the right side of the printer where the opening occurs that allows the top cover of the printhead assembly to open.

Change the appropriate cartridges and you should be good to go.

When the new cartridge is installed, the printer is set to look for new changes. make sure you,ve inserted the cartridge fully into it,s slot ( holder ) push until you get a slight click.
If you,ve disabled Status monitor, then your printer cannot output the Cartridge Status. ( empty-Full )
