Can't say that I've studied this in detail - but from memory, my cx5400 won't perform an automatic charge on Non-Epson cartridges. Have to power off and then back on. Painfull, but a not as painfull as paying Epson prices for ink.

Cartridge Error on printer

If your machine is displaying the message "cartridge error" then it is a problem with the cartridge. if you recently purchased them, you shouldn't have a problem returning them, especially if they are generic.

I've seen it often on Xerox's and HP's because they have chips on their cartridges that the machine has to read in order for it to work. sometimes the manufactured cartridges don't get a proper flash of those chips.

I've installed color cartridge but it won't print in color

Try to re-insert the color cartridge into the printer and make sure it is properly seated in the cartridge carrier.
If that doesn't help, try to clean the print nozzles. Please follow the steps below:
1. Press Copy. 2. Press Options until Maintenance appears on the display. 3. Press the right arrow until Clean Cartridges appears on the display. 4. Press Select. A nozzle page prints, forcing ink through the nozzles to clean the clogged nozzles. 5. Print your document again to verify that your print quality has improved.

Good job in re-seating the cartridges into the printer. Try to insert a different known working cartridge to determine if your other cartridge has gone bad.

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.

Black ink cartridge

It seems that its an hardware issue with the printer as you have already replaced the cartridge with a new one.
If the printer is in warranty contact DELL to get the printer replaced.


I would also suggest you not to use refill cartridges. Always buy genuine cartridges. As using refilling cartridges spolis the printer.
It damaged the print heads in the printer.

HP Deskjet 3845

Sounds like the color cartridge is overheating. Could be defective, ESPECIALLY if it not an original Hp BRAND NEW cartridge. Change out the color cartridge and see what happens. Each tiny little nozzle has its own heating element. Electronics monitor the temperature. Will stop the printing until the temperature comes back to an acceptable range. Ed
