Did you use a brandname ink cartridge - or is it a knock-off brand? If it is a brand name - then the cartridge is most likely defective. If it is a knock-off brand - some printers do not recognize the electronic in the cartridge and therefore don't see it as one being installed.
disregaurd any prior solutions in cleaning any contacts. that model doesnt have an electrical contact to clean. there are little magnets inside each color and black cartrige that work off a float mechanisim inside each one. when the levels get low the magnet indicates to the printer it is empty. unfortunately for you this stylis model as with all brother model printers wont work even if the color your setting up in the properties or settings feature are set to black and the black is full. its the companies way of forcing you into buying new ink. be aware though that my brother catriges cost 78.00 for the 3 color and one black set. i found these cartriges online through ebay but with one more additional black cartrige for a total of 5 not for ,for a total cost of 13.11 with free shipping. sounds too good to be true but for 13.00 it was worth a try. i have now purchased several 5 packs from them and couldnt be happiere.
MAYBE YOU ADDED A BLACK INK CARTRIDGE RATHER THAN THE COLOR ONE ? OR MAYBE YOU HAVE THE COLOR CARTRIDGE PLUGGED INTO THE BLACK INK ONE ? DONT KNOW IF THIS WILL HELP BUT THOSE WOULD BE THE FIRST FEW THINGS I WOULD CHECK. I ALWAYS SEEM TO MISS THE OBVIOUS WHEN SOMETHING ISNT WORKING FOR ME
1st check the little gold plates on back of the cartridge. clean them off and were they make contact to the printer. If that don't work. Download SSC Service Utility. (Voids warrenty use at own risk free program) http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml If that don't fix it there is still one more thing you can do. Get a chip restetter for your cartridges. http://dsacme.blogspot.com/2008/10/service-tool-for-reset-canon-i320.html (this one is not free) This will reset the chip on your cartridge and make the printer think its a new one. I use both programs works great.
It could be also the clogging of nossels in color Balck?! For this purpose you need a special Cleaning solution, wich you put first in the balck cartrige and start 2x cleaning(when cleaning you should observe if the balck ink is realy transported through the tube !!).Then you shut down your printer for about 24 hours.After that you clean also for 2x times and check after that the nossels printing test. If not all nossels are free you should repeat the hole thing once again....till the nossels are free.Another problem i observed at my printer is that at some CISS ore kompatible cartriges the rubber-sealing get used with the time and do not seal enough the conection from cartrige to printer-head and they **** only air... For this problem i sugested a solution ..see epson stylus 1400
Hi, can you help me? This printer was working fine for about 4 months and then in wont print anything anoymore. All it says to do is close the lid, but the dam thing isnt open. I tried opening and closing, removing ink cartrige and even slamming it down but still say door opened?
Cartriges have a shelf life. It's printing in blue either because it has dried up or is out. Different cartriges have different timelines but if you haven't been using the printer often, it could have dried up or is simply out of ink. I would suggest first to try cleaning the head of the cartrige where the ink comes out with alcohol and a Q-tip and then if that doesn't work, buying a new black cartrige.
