SOURCE: Canon Imageclass MF8180c says prepare new K Cart,

It is telling you that you need to replace the black "K" toner cartridge. It has the yellow "Y", magenta "M", cyan "C"and black "K" cartridge. You need to have the drum roll over until you can see the black cartridge when you open the printer top.

Hello. My HP Designjet 800ps says "too little ink to prepare the ink system". I want to know if there is something that i can do to erase this error.


It sounds like the printer has been set to initialize as if new and thinks that there is no ink in the tubes so it wants to do a full prime. Other than replacing the carts and letting it run I am not sure there is another way.

When I removed the fuse the printer will print again but it wont print properly it will just turn the paper black. will should i do?


Dear
It seems that the toner cart. was refilled and the fuse supplied by the re-filler is not the right one. The right one is (65mA fast acting 5mm type). The meaning of the fuse is to count and inform the user about the status of toner remains and send warning massage to prepare for new toner.
For black print, some here the electrical contact path has missed/loosen etc at the cart right side, these points are to be cleaned and lubricated properly. Also over flow of toner will cause such problem due to mis alignment of the internal parts.

Thanks and Happy new year 2015.

Says Cartridge error 50C...what does that mean?When the printer is turned on, it flashes this message, but I can't find it in the manual or online.


hi : shunaswim 

the error 50 c means either a cartridge fgone bad or the carrrier inside the printer gone bad .,

possible reason ., : having intalled faultly cart . if u got  refilled cartridge ., then contact retailer ., 

if got a new cart from dell ., call them @ 18006249896 and get a replacement cause the carts have 2 yr warratny on them ., make sure u call them along with the order # of ur purchase .

most importantly : 

u need to know which cart is causin the problem : black or the color ., 

try one cart at a time ., if both the cartridges have the same problem ., the n repalce the printer or the cartridges .

hav a gooday !

Prepare New Y Cart is the error message. I see it


The copier is almost out of yellow (Y) toner so it is telling you to make sure you have a spare one available for when it does run out. Get it prepared/ordered. It will eventually tell you that it is time to replace the yellow toner.
