Printer is not printing black

I started using the jetset inks to refil my cartidge and I think it has leaked onto the chip thing that sends messages to the cartidge. I have cleaned it off but it still does print in black. I think the chip thing is damaged on the printer. Is this worth fixing? Or do I just need to clean it a little bit more? All help appreciated, thanks in advance!

REMOVE COVER BY TAKING OUT THE TWO SCREWS ON THE BACK (ONE NEAR CABLE CONNECTOR & ONE RESESED ON OTHER SIDE). THEN THERE ARE TWO THUMB CLIPS ON THE BOTTOM. UNCLIP THEM & COVER WILL COME OFF. MOVE HEADS FROM PARK POSITION &CLEAN THE TWO RECTANGLE LOOKING MAGNETS WITH QTIP & ALCOHOL.

The Lexmark z1300 cannot be refilled.  The cartridges have some kind of recognition system, that rejects refilled cartridges, so beware.  I have searched online for days to find out how to override the system.  Just know that you'll have to buy a new cartridge every time, and that the colors do not come out as indicated on your computer.  They are muted.

Try cleaning the contacts with a q-tip and some rubbing alcohol. Make sure the contacts on the cartridge are clean too. You can buy a new Lexmark Z1300 for $30, and their cartridge prices are not that bad per page any more. So I'm not sure it's worth the hassle and risk of refilling yourself.

Ive refilled ink cartridge and put it back in printer but the printer is still indicating empty cartridge and wont print. How do I reset the firmware on printer so it accepts cartridge as new?

Often times it is the chip in the cartidge that needs resetting - depending on the brand, there are various tools needed to reset - sometimes needing a new chip. Printer manufactures have gotten stingy with ink and want people to buy genuine new cartidges. The best advice I can give you is try to get to an ink refill shop and see if they can reset the chip in the cartridge.

I had been refilling my cartidgesand they worked well. Now, I refill my Cann bjc 250 cartidge, but the printer does not printp. I buy a new one. This cartidge worked well. Why the refilled cartidges do not...

when you refill a cartridge...they have a life spam...they do not last long...
because cartridge are manufacture to be use or refilled by 2 or 3 times...then if it reach the limit you have no choice other than to buy new one...

Hp 920 xl ink cartridge filling instructions anyone have them

to refill 920:

1. If you have the plastic cap that covers the 9 mm. hole where you can see the sponge, then tape this cap to the cartidge with scotch tape. If not, use some duct/masking tape to cover the round hole.

2. Use the dry hypodermic needle to find the hole that will be found at the very center of the 920 label. With the needle, pierce the label.

3. Fill the hypodermic needle with 4 cc of ink.

4. Insert the needle 2-3 cm. into the hole made in step 2. Draw out 1 cc of air, then slowly force the 4 cc of ink into the sponge. Use toilet tissue to absorb any ink that might have escaped.

5. Let the catridge stand overnight (if possible) so as to allow the ink to evenly saturate the sponge. If not, insert it into your printer immediately.

Note: If you are going to refill catridges, be certain not to allow the sponge to dry completely. Thus, you might want to do step one immediately and to enclose it in a sealed sandwich bag upon removing an empty catridge from your printer even if you are not going to fill it immediately.

“Lexmark does not support the refilling of its ink cartridges. Refilling the ink cartridges can cause them to leak, thus clogging or even damaging the print head.

How to reset the Canon MX850 Printer, after ink change and counter reset? After I had changed ink cartidge and reset ink counter, I was able to print without problem. But this was only for a few days. ...

One way is to hold the 'Stop/Reset' button for at least 5 seconds until the display shows a new message about ignoring the current ink condition. This does not reset the chip but it does allow you to continue printing with the refilled ink tanks.

Ink Refill for HP Photosmart c7280 not working

Hi Lisa,

If it responds ok with the old cartridge then the problem is with the cartridges' chip not the printer. Probably the manufactor has a problem with certain cartridge chip (contact them!). I would suggest to use the original at the problematic spot if it works without a problem.

Printer is not printing black

Remove cartridge and remove the mains from the wall.
Try cleaning the contacts with a cloth dampened WITH WATER, wipe it up with another cloth and let dry.
If your old cartridge is not working again, try with a new one, generally is the cartridge which may become damaged, not the printer... hope !

Canon MP780 didn't report out of ink and now will not pring blanck

Have you tried cleaning or aligning the heads? Were the first cartridges refills? when an ink cartridge is refilled (depending on the model) the printer needs to be tricked into thinking a "new" cartidge is being installed. You may need to check the owners manual to see if the is the case. I have had to use tape to block off certain contacts, then remove the cartidge and block off another section of contacts, then remove tape all together and re-insert the cartridge.
