Sometimes after a refiling they cover a small air holes on the top of the cartridge when replacing the label. remove the label completely and try again.
Also the magenta might have been to empty for a refill to work correctly. There is a lower chamber in the cartridge that air can get into and stop the flow from the top section.
This link below can help in that case.
I hope this helps
It is always recommended to use genuine HP cartridges.
As if we will use the non HP or refilled cartridges, it will reduce the life of the printer.
And we will get an error "cartridge problem".
Plaese use the below cartridges, which are compatible with this printer.
HP 02 Black 660 pages HP 02 Black Twin Pack 1320 pages HP 02 Color Combo See single 02 inks HP 02 Cyan 400 pages HP 02 Light Cyan 240 photos HP 02 Light Magenta 240 photos HP 02 Magenta 370 pages HP 02 Photo Value Pack 150 photos HP 02 Yellow 500 pages HP 02XL Cyan 600 pages HP 02XL Magenta 555 pages HP 02XL Yellow 750 pages
The HP 940 cartridge is the new version of the HP 88 cartridge. Both have a chip that estimates ink levels. Once the chip says the cartridge is empty it will refuse to print, no matter how much ink is really left in the cartridge. This is a safety measure so you don't get air in your ink lines. If you get air in an ink line, that color will no longer print. We can refill the HP 88 because there are replacement chips available for these cartridges. I own a Cartridge World ink refilling store and I don't refill the HP 940s yet because I don't have access to a replacement chip. If you purchased a refilled HP 940 and it's not working, I would say the chip has not been replaced. I would wait until a reputable refiller (i.e.-Cartridge World, Office Depot, etc..) offers refills for this cartridge before you try anything off the internet.
The colors are individual. That machine takes the Canon CLI-8. I would suggest reading your manual on what the procedure is for changing the ink cartridges out, it typically varies slightly by machine. There should be an option somewhere one of the menus to change the ink cartridges. When you buy a replacement be sure you buy from someone who isn't trying to scam you. I would recommend Cartridge World, of course, or OEM. Do not use cheap online cartridges, you will only have headache later.
This printer takes the HP 940 cartridge. I own a Cartridge World ink refilling store and we cannot refill these cartridges yet. There is a chip on the cartridge that estimates the ink levels and shuts off the cartridge when it thinks it is empty. Any refills you find are either violating patent law with replacement chips or they are telling you to take the chip off your old cartridge and put it on the new one. This second scenario is a rip off because once the chip says the cartridge is empty, no matter how much ink is left, it will refuse to print.
If the cartridge tape covering the ink dispenser and the cartridge is properly seated in the transport, the chances are that the cartridge is defective. If you are using aftermarket or refilled cartridge, replace it with a new OEM cartridge should clear the problem. I would try the OEM method first to make sure that something else is not wrong. If the OEM cartridge works, return the faulty cartridge for a replacement or refund.
Let me know if this works. Thanks.
You are doing nothing wrong. The nozzles are clogged. Try taking a clean syringe and put your finger on one of the magenta (red) refill holes. Fill the syringe with air. Put it on the second magenta refill hole and blow the air inside. That should force out the ink that has dried and that is not letting the new ink come out. You might have to do that several times. Sometimes, it can help. If that doesn't work, go to a refill shop, they should be able to clean the print nozzles on your cartridge, no need to buy new ones.

I am assuming from your brief problem description that you are getting bad colors when you changed your color cartridge.
Are you using a new and certified HP ink cartridge? Are you doing a refill of your old ink cartridge or have bought one of those "re-manufactured" cartridges?
The head in the cartridge is very sensitive - when they are damaged or poorly handled - it could result in cross contamination of the color inks. Hence - the brownish color you see could be the result of that cross-contam.
My impression is that the remanufactured or older or continously refilled cartridges may be more prone to getting damaged - maybe bec of inherent wear out.
Hope this helps.
