I have 1860 fax machine. It says that the black cartridge needs replacing. I buy a new cartridge and put it in and is says to install a black ink cartridge. I reinstall the cartridge several times and it says to install a black cartridge. Any help before I smash this piece of **** fax machine in the driveway?

Sais I am out of ink but I can see there is ink in the cartridge

the feeder may be clogged you can try running it through a cleaning cycle from the computer, if the ink appears to be under half way the cartridge may be bad/dried out at the nozzle. replace the cartridge.

Not Receiving Faxes

If it is a fresh ink and all carts have ink, you can unplug the machine and plug it back in while you hold the stop button for a few seconds after it powers up.That usually clears the error.
