Re: not print and not scann without colour cartridge
Most printer require all cartridge to be present and recognised before they will operate- even though you only wish to print -say- text in black.
When printing in most machines all colours print even if it is only text you want.
Except some machine can have a black only mode
This will be found in the properties menu, if your machine has the facility

Epson printers will not accept another cartridge fitted in a particular slot, that's why it says 'cannot recognise cartridge'. Each colour has a colour specific chip fitted - to stop people accidentally fitting a colour in a wrong slot. What your printer is telling you is absolutely normal...
after replacing the cairtage printer needs alignment it gives a test page when we put it face down on scannes it starts the alignment...
on alignment process it doesn;t found the colour bands so it shows the alignment failure..........
pls install the new colour cairtge the it will give u the printout
You can bypass sometimes when the cartridge is just empty, but there's no bypass if not recognized. You can try using an eraser to wipe the contacts on the cartridge and inside the cartridge holder, but if that doesn't work you will need the new cartridge.
If you refill the regular lexmark 100 ink cartridges, you will not be able to use it because there is a rfid chip that track the ink usage. you will need to buy the 100a type which will let you print if the ink level is empty. since you have refill the 100 ink cartridge, you can swap the 100a chip to your 100 cartridge.
All cartridges must be present before the printer will operate.
Essentially black is obtained by printing all colours together.
Some makes/models of printer will allow black printing only for text printing.
This is a printer 'PROPERTIES' function and you will have to seek this out by reading the manual fully.
