If all light flashes and your CX2900 is converted to CIS might as well bring it back to where you bought your CIS. maybe they have the software for resetting the waste ink pad counter.
Note: SSCServe wont work...

I have solved this problem on my sx515w. I hadn't used the printer for a while and when I did after about 3 months the black wouldn't print. Even after trying several different new cartridges, driver reinstals, updates, automatic head cleaning operations..... It turned out that the printer head had ink dried onto it due to lack of use.
What you need to do is to drop a few drops of nail polish remover (yes as in Acetone solution) on to the foam cleaning dock, located to the far right of the printer rail. When the printer is resting, the ink jet module covers the dock. TO expose the dock, set the printer to the 'clean head' operation and the ink jet module will go to the far left, when this happens pull the power cord out so it stays out of the way (don't worry the printer will reset fine afterwards).So now the module is out of the way drop in some cleaing fluid on to the sponge dock. Then you are ready to run the automatic clean head operation at least 20 times. Do a test print each time until full print quality is resumed.
Oh and it is worth cleaning the sponge dock with tissue as it gets heavily soiled with ink (using the 'clean head' - turn off half way operation just described above). Remeber to replenish the nail polish remover. This should sort it.
Once you remove the ink cartridge from the printer, you can make use of the Isopropyl Alcohol, and put at maximum of 10 drops in the ink cartridge. You will find a hole there, in which the ink usually runs from the ink cartridge to the head of the printer. When done, you can put the cartridge back in the printer and run the auto cleaning process from the printer's option in order to clean the blocked holes of the cartridge. I would suggest you to run print tests first and once you are satisfied with the results, you can start using the printer normally.
If you want to go further:
* Remove the tank. * Connect a hose directly on the inlet ink. * Locate the sensor of reservoir and press it to make as if a cartridge is available. * Close the cover of the print head and clean the head by injecting air (under pressure) through the pipe. * Replace the tank up and do a test print. * Repeat the procedure several times if the nozzles are clogged.
Using a syringe and some alcohol to unblock the holes can also be very effective.
* Step 1: Remove the cartridge from the computer * Step 2: With the syringe, take in some alcohol and put in some drops in the tiny hole where the ink runs from the ink cartridge to the head of the printer. * Step 3: When done, put the cartridge (only where the tiny holes are found) in some warm water. If some ink runs in the water, it means that the holes have been unblocked. * Step 4: Hence, let the alcohol act for 20 minutes on the ink before putting the cartridge back in the printer. * Step 5: Run some test prints before using the printer normally.
Note: I would suggest you to do an automatic head cleaning each time before any printing task. Hence it will reduce the risk of having the print heads blocked by dried ink.
Clean the nozzles, it make take several tries. Be sure to have full cartridges as cleaning uses lots of ink. Get a CISS for your printer. It will save you TONS of MONEY, never change a cartridge again and it will pay for itself in a month. http://www.inkproducts.com/ink-store/
hi, are you using cis ( continuous ink system ) system or refill? if cis try place the inks lower than printer if refil try repressure them ( open the plug hole - press the cartridge on the side then close them) if you are using original ( not likely ) replace them..
