Pen failure message from utility

With new cartridges (56 & 57) installed about a week prior (they are still "pregnant or weighty" with ink), the printer stopped printing and a "pen failure" message appeared when i went to the utility. (Yes, the Error light was on and could not be turned off by any of my machinations.) What to do next? THANKS, jaygbee

HP tech support suggests cleaning the ink cartridge contacts and the contacts inside the printer for the cartridges. If this does not clear the problem, try replacing both cartridges (color and b/w) with new ones.

I have just installed a new black cartridge and when I try to print the printer says 'left cartridge missing'. It is not missing and is installed correctly. If I override the command the print


Please remove the cartridges from the printer. Take a dry lint free paper towel and gently wipe the contacts on the back of the cartridge (not the bottom from where ink is present). Wipe the contacts inside the printer (on cartridge carrier). Please snap the cartridges back into the cartridge carrier and please try to print a printer self test.
Good Luck!!!!

The printer's black ink cartridge won't print without the Tri-color print cartridge


Most of the HP printers are designed to allow printing onlywhen all cartridges are installed and
have ink.
Install a new tri-color ink cartridge and printing will continue as usual.
My printer, which is HP, does the same thing as yours, until I replace the empty cartridge,
printing stops.

I have installed all new cartridges. "Ink is out" comes up when I try to print. It is properly installed and is the second set of ink cartridge this has happened with. The "On" and 'Ink" lights do not stop flashing. The printer does not see the new cartridges.

Printer is blinking. I installed a new ink


Sounds like your cartridge may be unseated or it is really incompatible. You do not state clearly that you have printed successfully with this cartridge before.

My Epson C60 won't print multiple copies after I have just installed a new ink cartridge. Prior to this it was able to do so with no problems. Now it will print 1 page then stoop, no matter how many copies...


I cannot think of a sensible reason why a faulty ink cartridge should stop the computer printing more than one copy (your post does seem to confuse "page" with "copy" though). To eliminate the cartridge as the source of the problem, you should install another one (a cheap clone on e-bay); if it now works, then yes, it was the cartridge causing the problem. If you still get the same problem, no, it isn't the cartridge. If it is the latter, I suggest you uninstall the printer, turn the printer off, reboot the computer, then re-install the printer, but do not turn it on until told to. If this works, the mystery remains why changing a cartridge should cause a printer driver hiccup! If it doesn't work, repost back with a new post and we'll scratch our heads a bit more!

Check ink cartridge


Your ink cartridges could be dried up or empty, even if they are new.

INSTALLED NEW CARTRIGES AND PRINTER WILL NO RESUME PRINTING


hi maggievalley,

I need you to make absolutely sure that you followed the installation procedure of the cartridges correctly. Some manufacturers put a kind of tape on the cartridge when it ships from their factories to prevent ink from leaking out of the cartridge during transportation. This tape must be removed prior to installing the cartridge in a printer to allow the ink to flow out of the cartridge.
I suggest you remove the cartridges from your printer and reinstall them following the new cartridge installation guidelines of your printer's manufacturer step-by-step.

Hope you find this information helpful in solving the printing problem and thanks for using the FixYa service
Kind regards
