Hello!
When the printer tells you "wrong cartridge", it is because it cannot recognize the cartridge.
Remove the color cartridge and gently wipe the electric contacts on it with a dry cloth. Put the cartridge back in and check for error messages.
If the problem persists, you will need to buy a new color cartridge, because the one you have is damaged- one of the contacts on it has blown, and when you place it in the printer, it won't recognize it, because one of the contacts is missing (that is why some printers give a warning sign "cartridge missing").
Hope that helps!

Testimonial: "After taking the re-filled cartrideges back on 2 seperate ocassions one finally worked. It appears from the advice at the shop that it is 99% sure to be the cartridge not the printer this now turns out to be true. In future I will buy new cartridges, this will save time and money in travel. The advice was exceptionally helpfull. "

Refilling hp 46 colour cartridge only red colour come wrapping the cartridge with papertowel and swing arm like windmill to put some centrifugalforce to expel air from the printhead did no success


The step is to fold up a paper kitchen towel and soak in it in hot (near boiling) water. Sit the cartridge on it so that the print head is resting on the hot wet paper. Leave it there for 10-15 minutes. With luck the capillary action of the wet paper will draw the air along with some ink out. When you can see three solid colour bars on a dry piece of paper drawn over the print head, dry the cartridge and try printing again. If the airlock will not move, you won't be able to recover the cartridge short of centrifuging it to an empty state and starting again.

After refilling my new hp 46 colour cartridge only red colour has come in the printout.After injecting air to the other two colour holes by syringe the other two colour comes for a while.


It sounds like there is an airlock in the printhead firing chamber. This probably means the cartridge was refilled after the cartridge was well depleted. Try wrapping the cartridge with paper towel and swing your arm like a "windmill" to put some centrifugal force to expel air from the printhead. When these are professionally refilled, we do them under a hard vacuum to ensure air is not trapped in the printhead.

How do I insert One Black and one color cartridge ? I have hp 6310 OFfice jet All in one. Thanks.


Hi,
Lift the whole of the scanner section and you can get at the twin ink cartridges. The two Vivera ink cartridges, one for black and the other tri-colour, clip into their carriers and apart from loading paper, that's the only physical installation required. No, for color cartridge 344 and black 339 cartridge.

The printer continue to display yellow light for colour ink catridge even after refill


Each cartridge comes with a chip which indicates whether the cartridge is full or empty. By refilling the cartridge the chip cannot be reset. If you cannot get past this message on the printer you may need to buy a brand new cartridge that is not refilled.

Refillable cartridges for X5495


34 and 35 are refillable. The ones you get with your printer aren't.
Now, I don't understand why the colors are mixed. Is the 35 you tried a new cartridge or a refilled one?

Cannon MP220 displays colour ink vol unknown


For the Canon Pixma MP220, I kept getting a message saying "Col Ink Vol Unknown" after refilling and replacing a cartridge. After reading some of the other responses it appears as though Canon cartridges contain internal chips that prevent you from using them after they have been refilled. However, I tried a few things and this is what worked for me.

1. Insert your refilled Canon cartridge like normal, close the lid.
2. The Error message "Col Ink Vol Unknown" should still appear.
3. Use the "Menu" button to scroll to "Maintenance" (press "Menu" 8 times to find it), then press "OK" to conduct a "Nozzle Check" and a coloured test will print out.
4. The Error message will still appear but you will be able to print using colour AND with black and white. For some silly reason the Canon Pixma MP220 won't print using black and white if there is no coloured ink...

Hope this helps!

Lexmark X1100 Series won't print in colour after cartridge refill


I have refilled my cartride many times. Sometimes the colour has not worked so I found that if I put the lower end in hot water and made sure all 3 colours came out in the water the printing then worked. It simply was clogged after refilling.
