SOURCE: Ink level counter disabled, not recognizing new (refilled) cartridge.

Now this is for the black PG-40 and CL-41.

After refilling your cartridges for the first time, you need to disable the ink monitor.

The instructions are in your manual. You know the book that no one seems to read.

Start button > Settings > Control Panel > Printers > (right click on printer model) > Printer Preferences > Maintenance Tab > View Printer Status > Option.

In the options menu you must left click on the enable status monitor. The check mark will disappear and the ink monitor is now disabled.

If you get a pop up message saying anything and the printer is flashing orange. Click ok on the computer, if no ok button. Hold the feed button on the printer for a few seconds.

SOURCE: MP830 Cyan Ink won't print

Soaking the print head in non-detergent ammonia works very well. It breaks up the dried ink clots perfectly. (Soaking in alcohol does not work nearly as well.) Be sure the head is completely dry before putting it back in the machine.

Try to do the Deep Clean Printhead function on your printer to force ink through the nozzles and clean possible clogs and dirt.

quite often inkjet heads will dry up and clog. try a clean heads sequence in the printer properties panel. do this until it prints the clean nozzle page properly. If the ink cartridges have the print head attached to them (some dont) you can dab them on a paper towel with windex or vinegar until they show a nice clean line when dabbed. if you cant get the print heads out , then you just need to continue running the clean nozzel application until it prints the test nozzel job properly. This is the reason I will not buy any more inkjet printers. only Toner based machines. cheers.

Color ink cartridge


Well due to some problem in cartridge you would be facing this problem.however you can do try this.

Please clean your cartridge once again with some spirit.

Fix it well in the printer afterward.

Than use normal paper and print in color.

If than also it does not work that means the bar-code of the cartridge has problem in it so the printer is unable to read that code, so for that you need to change the whole cartridge.

Or if your printer had valid in warranty period and it still in that period just give it to a service center.

If you still had any confusion regarding the same problem or nay other please do reply.

Naiven.

If the printer has been unused for a considerable time the cartridges may have become blocked with dried ink.

Remove the cartridge(s). Take a slightly dampened cotton bud or piece of kitchen paper and carefully wipe the copper coloured surface on the cartridge(s). Then wipe with a dry piece of kitchen paper.

Re-insert the cartridge(s) and perform the print head cleaning function in your printer control panel.

Now try printing.

Black ink not printing


Fix ink cartridge
I had same problem. I must have ran the clean cycle more than 30-50 times over a period of days. That never made any difference. I was about to toss the whole thing but figured I would try one more thing. If it didn't work I would be in no worse shape. Here is what I did.
Took an almost empty black cartridge and inject a lot of 100% Acetone to dilute ink. Left some black in it since I didn't want to think it was empty. Inserted this cartridge and ran the cleaning a few time. IT WORKED. I used my word processor program and filled a page with large bold font characters and printed a page or two. Each page cleared more nozzles. After doing this cleaning/printing a number of time, I put in the full good cartridge. Ran the cleaning a few time to eject any of the Acetone diluted ink. Ran the printed page a few time to remove more of the diluted ink.
Everything seems to work now.
