SOURCE: I HAVE AN HP PHOTOSMART C6280 ALL-IN-ONE PRINTER

Hi,
As the printer was bought in the US the printer is meant to use the #02 cartridges.

When you decided to replace the empty cartridges with refilled ones…the place you took them to be refilled more than likely decided to replace the little chip with a local flavour, which attempt to mimic original HP cartridges #363 (or what ever the number of those cartridges is where you are now). Hence now they are rejected by your printer.

But because the printer is only designed to use #02 cartridges it will reject every other cartridge/chip that do not have an #02 programmed into them….

You could try to call HP and explain them your situation and see if they can help you reset your printer to accept a different cartridge number …

Cheers.

Hello,
The ink failure error is caused by air in the ink feed tubes in your printer. This happens when the ink in your cartridge runs out and the printer sucks up air instead of ink. This is a very common problem with this series of printer. We have a step by step repair solution for this error posted on our web site at: www.ccl-la.com click on the printer repair pages and follow the links to your printer series.

I hope this helps, If so pleae rate our solution.

How to removecartgage from epson 110 pl show pictures


The Epson Stylus C110 is a stylish-looking color printer with a black body. The top of the unit has a glossy piano finish, which gives it a touch of class. The Stylus C110 weighs in at 3.9 Kg, leaves a footprint of 43.5 cm x 24 cm and stands only 16.1 cm tall. It may not be the smallest ever, but it's definitely smaller than many printers out in the market.

The top cover opens up to reveal the cartridge bay, where you can access the cartridges when you need to change them.

90666_cartridges.jpg

As you may be able to see above, there are actually five cartridges in this printer. This is quite unusual, because in addition to the three color cartridges, there are two black cartridges instead of one. This is a clever move and is actually useful when you use this printer in office. When one black cartridge gets empty, the other one takes over and gives you time to replace the empty one with no downtime, thus leaving productivity unaffected. Also, since it uses individual ink cartridges, you save money because you only have to replace the empty cartridge. This printer is based on piezoelectric technology, which relies on ink being pumped out onto the paper by piezoelectric crystals that change shape when an electric charge is applied.

I am setting up a new printer HP Photosmart D110 and the new cartridges will not align. I get a message that the cartridges are not calibrated for best print quality after scanning the alignment page....


Step one: Load the correct type of paper Remove all the paper from the tray. NOTE: Colored, photo, or used paper can cause the alignment to fail. Load unused, plain white, letter, or A4-sized paper with a brightness level of at least 85 into the tray. NOTE: Look for the brightness level on the paper packaging. Step two: Align the All-in-One Press Setup . Press 5 . The product opens the Tools menu on the control panel display. Press 3 to select Align Printer . The product calibrates, aligns the printhead, and then prints an alignment page. Recycle or discard the alignment page. Video of aligning the All-in-One The following video demonstrates the steps for fixing a carriage or paper jam. The product shown in the video is the HP Photosmart C7280. The outside of the product might look different, but the steps are similar for the same for the HP Photosmart 3100, 3200, and 3300 All-in-One series products. If you have trouble viewing the video or to view the video in a different size, click here to play the video (in English) on YouTube. If these steps resolved the issue , there is no need to continue troubleshooting. If the issue persists , see the next step. Step three: Clean and reinstall the cartridges If the contacts on a cartridge are dirty or do not seat correctly, the alignment might fail. Follow these steps in the order presented to clean and reinstall the cartridges. Gather the following materials: Soft, lint-free materials, such as foam-tipped swabs, that do not stick to the electrical contacts Clean, lint-free paper to rest the cartridges on (coffee filters work well) Distilled water Press the Power button to turn on the product. Open the cartridge door. Squeeze the tab below the black cartridge on the far left side of the carriage, and then lift the cartridge latch. 1 - Cartridge latch for the black cartridge 2 - Cartridge latches for the color cartridges Remove the cartridge by pulling it toward you and out of its slot. CAUTION: Do not remove multiple cartridges at the same time. Remove, clean, and then reinstall each cartridge one at a time. Do not leave a cartridge outside the HP All-in-One for more than 30 minutes. Inspect the cartridge contacts for ink and debris buildup. Dip a clean foam rubber swab or lint-free cloth into distilled water, and then squeeze any excess water from it. NOTE: Hold the cartridge by its handle. Do not touch the copper-colored contacts with your hands or anything other than a foam rubber swab or lint-free cloth. Clean only the copper-colored contacts. 1 - Copper-colored contacts Slide the cartridge back into the empty slot. Secure the cartridge in the slot by pressing down on the latch until it clicks into place. Repeat steps 2 through 5 for each of the cartridges. Close the cartridge door, and then try to align the product again. If these steps resolved the issue , there is no need to continue troubleshooting. If the issue persists , see the next step. Step four: Check the ink levels Empty or nearly empty cartridges can result in alignment failures. Follow these steps in the order presented to check the ink levels in the cartridges. Press Setup Press 5 , and then press 1 . The Tools menu displays. Click Display Ink Gauge . The gauges for the six cartridges display. Check the gauge for empty or almost empty cartridges, and then replace any you find. The product automatically performs an alignment and prints an alignment page. If these steps resolved the issue , there is no need to continue troubleshooting. If the issue persists , see the next step. Step five: Replace the cartridges Follow these steps to replace any cartridges that are empty or low on ink. Open the cartridge door. Squeeze the tab below the black cartridge on the far left side of the carriage, and then lift the cartridge latch.
1 - Cartridge latch for the black cartridge 2 - Cartridge latches for the color cartridges Remove the cartridge by pulling it toward you and out of its slot. CAUTION: Do not replace multiple cartridges at the same time. Replace each cartridge one at a time. Do not leave a cartridge outside the HP All-in-One for more than 30 minutes. Remove the new cartridge from its packaging, and then, holding it by the handle, slide the ink cartridge into the empty slot. Slide the new cartridge forward into the empty slot. Repeat 2 through 5 for each of the cartridges. Close the cartridge door, and then try to align the product again. If these steps resolved the issue , there is no need to continue troubleshooting. If the issue persists , see the next step. Step six: Reset and relocate the product A power reset drains power from the product and returns the product to the same settings after restarting. Moving the product to another location and plugging it directly into a wall outlet can eliminate any potential power deficiencies that might prevent a successful alignment. Make sure that you have the product turned on. If necessary, press the Power button to turn on the product. With the product turned on, disconnect the power cord from the back of the product. Relocate the All-in-One to a different power outlet, preferably in a separate room Plug the power cord directly into the wall outlet. Do not use a power strip. Reconnect the power cord to the back of the product. Press the Power button to turn on the product. Load plain white paper into the tray. Try the alignment again.

How do you replace the ink cartride in a hp 2175 all in one printer


1. Prepare the replacement cartridge by pressing down and back on the top of the protective plastic, then sliding the cartridge out.
2. Set both the cartridge and empty cartridge protector aside.
3. Turn on your printer and lift the access door until it locks into place. The print carriage will move to the center.
4. Once the print carriage has stopped moving, raise the latch to release the empty cartridge. 5. Remove the empty cartridge by pulling towards you. If you are replacing the tri-color cartridge and need to remove the black ink cartridge temporarily, use the empty cartridge protector to hold it. 6. Hold the replacement cartridge by the sides and remove the black plastic tape. 7. Insert the replacement cartridge into the appropriate slot (left for tri-color, right for black) until it snaps into place. 8. Pull the cartridge latch towards you and press down until it snaps into place. 9. Close the access door. -------

How do I change the toner?


The Fax-2480c does not use toner cartridges.
This is an inkjet and so uses ink cartridges.

There are 4 cartridges, black, yellow, cyan (blue) and magenta (red). If any of these cartridges are empty, you need replace them.

This machine takes LC-51 cartridges.
You're probably out of warranty so jsut get refills... it's cheaper
