SOURCE: HP 1250 Fax gave cartridge

Hi,

According to you your Fax gave error.

You should check first you've installed the cartridge properly.

check the print head is clear.

May you need to change another colour cartridge also, because the colour cartridge may get dry or blank. All the cartridge should'nt be blank or dry.

Use your fax in proper way.

Check the fax settings from fax properties.

Reboot the printer.

You printer maybe lock in alignment status.
You could try a hardware reset
Removed both of your cartridges
Unplug the printer
Wait at least 30 minutes
Replug back the printer
Install back the ink cartridges and align

Have new printer and need to change ink cartridges. Cannot see instructions in the Manual that came with HP OfficeJet4500 - Oml Cartrodge 901


Turn on the printer (the cartridges will not move without power to the printer) and open the front access door on the front right of the unit. Wait until the cartridge carrier comes to a full stop (idle and silent) in this opening. Press down lightly on the cartridge to be changed and then pull the cartridge out of the slot towards you.

Remove the new cartridge from the packaging and remove the tape that protects the contacts. Hold the cartridge by the black plastic; do not touch the electrical contacts or the nozzles. Hold the cartridge with the HP logo up on top and slide the cartridge into the slot until it snaps into place. (Color on the left and black on the right) When done changing the cartridges (if you need to do both), close the access door and wait for the unit to print an alignment page. Then scan the alignment page. If the alignment page doesn't print on its own. Press the Setup button (looks like a wrench) on the printer. Select Tools (left/right arrows) and press OK. Then select Align Cartridges and press OK. Put the alignment page face down on the glass so that the text is to the right of the unit. Then press OK.

HP has a video and detailed pictures of the cartridge replacement for the 4500 here: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01952777&tmp_task=setupCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=3919448&lang=en .

I hope this helps.

Message says printer ink low. left cartridge in


You need to carry out alignment to correct the left cartridge, go to the setup on the printer, under maintenance, you will see align cartridge,perform this exercise to align the black and color cartridge and see if it will still prompt this message.

Compliments and wish you best of luck

Printer will not align


Print cartridge

When the print cartridge contacts are dirty and the printer cannot detect/communicate with print cartridge.

Clean the contact points on the cartridges with a dry, lint-free cloth.

1. Open the top cover of the printer.

2. Remove the print cartridges.

3. Clean the copper-colored contact points on the cartridges with a damp, lint-free cloth.
Use a dry, lint-free cloth to remove moisture from the contacts.

5. Insert the cartridges back into the printer.

6. Close the top cover.

7. Try printing again.

If you still cant communicate try with new cartridge .

HP J4500 color cartridge error


Take the cartridge out and clean the contacts off with something (ie: pencil eraser, your thumb...) That worked for me! I couldn't find a solution anywhere even after chatting with online tech support from HP. Quick and painless! I hope this helps...

My hp officejet j4580 says incompatible black ink cartridge


I've been in print cartridge hell since I bought a J4580.

I spent an hour on chat with HP customer service and was able to resolve the problem by partially resetting the printer. Here's how:
  • Make sure your print cartridges are installed.
  • Unplug the machine, wait 20 seconds
  • Press and hold the # and 3 keys
  • Plug the machine back in
  • You'll see a reset message on the machine, release the # and 3 keys
  • Follow the prompts to set the language and location
Cross your fingers, hopefully your printer will print now!

Error message Alignment


There is no doubt in my mind it Will be the cartridges you are using, alignment will continue to be requested if print out is missing bits do yourself a favour and use HP gen., not trying to plug HP just telling you the facts
