    Same problem as Stewpot ... however printer has not been left without cartidges (as suggested bu "guest" solution) and worked some 10 days ago. I have changed both cartridges and turned power off etc without luck also. Any other ideas rather than get anew printer would be appreciated.

Hi I had same problem, error 1c denoted black ink cartridge is not installed properly, I took it out and put it back in - then got error message 1 Eb - this denoted black ink cartridge is empty - I replaced the black ink cartridge and now the printer is happy and I am happy - hope this helps :) Richard - I know epson cartridges are not cheap but it was not as pricey as a new printer ;)

Epson printers are known for this sort of thing. You left the printer too long without cartridges and the heads dried up. Buy a new printer and this time don't buy Epson.

ESP-6TM Sprinkler System - Everything on the display is correct. Then the unit reads "Err" and will not activate. Tried reprogramming with no luck. What is the problem?

When it gives the "ERR" code, usually it flashes the zone number after that. This will only do this when the system is set to "ON". Sometimes, error codes pop up for no apparent reason, with no fault in the system, and attempting to clear the alarm is the first step in troubleshooting the system. When turned to "ON", and the "ERR" alarm is displayed, hit the ENTER button. This should clear the alarm for a single zone. If another ERR is displayed, clear it also by pressing ENTER. Turn the system back to OFF, wait 10 seconds, then turn to ON. If no ERR codes are displayed, the system should cycle properly on next use. If ERR odes are still displayed, make another attempt to clear them, and re-check. If they cannot be cleared, trace down circuits to the valve boxes for each zone, and make sure that all wiring connections are good, dry, and tight. Solenoid valves can be removed with the water shut off, and tested at the control box by wiring them into the terminal strip site for a known good circuit, and then operating that circuit. If the valve is good, you'll see and hear the diaphragm move.

I installed new ink in my Compaq A1500 printer, however the printer continues to state" Clear System Err Then Press Clear." The printer is making a strange noise and it does not clear. It appears...

Try reseating the ink cartridge. Maybe, the cartridge is not seated properly.

Here are the simple steps:

1. Lift the control panel by holding the panel along the top edge.
2. Pull the control panel forward.
3. Lift the ink cartridge access door. for better access, stow the document input tray away. the carriage will move to the center.
4. Then, try reseating the cartridge. Hold the ink cartridge by the black
areas or colored top only.

Good luck,

I have put an "compatible toner cartridge in my Samsung CLX-2160N

By using refill cartridges there is no easy way to reset your printer to except it. The chip located on the cartridge is letting the printer know that the cartridge is emtpy. The solution is to buy a brand new cartridge and this will clear the message for you.

Printer will not recognize a refilled cartridge

this is a bit hard because.....what model is your printer? Is your printer hooked up to a computer or stand alone? Usually you can press and hold the cancel button for around 10sec or until is clears and this will let the printer use a refilled cartridge but you will not be able to moniter the ink levels.. the printer will remember that the cartridge you are trying to use is empty already but you can continue printing until the printing becomes faded and then you know you need to refill.

Black Cartridge just changed, but still says K-toner low

The only way to clear the message is to wait until the the display shows XXXX Toner Out, then change the cartridge and the message will clear itself.
