Having problems with your HP PC Desktops ?

Refilled print cartridge says empty when just bought and put in


Answers :

Maybe a corrupt software driver, try updated software from the web site. Also it could be the electrical connections to the printer cartridges. Remove the cartridges & clean the gold or silver contacts with a pencil eraser. Be gentle & don't touch the contacts with you fingers, as it leaves a n oil film & causes contact problems. You will have to clean the inside, where the printer cartridge contacts connect to, as well.. Rgds,

Printer stopped I bought a Canon Pixma 1800. After I used up the ink that goes with it, I had the cartridge refilled with a replacement ink, and it worked fine for a day. Then I wanted to print again and I got the message that the black cartridge is out of ink but I just had it refilled with replacement ink. Now I cannot print coz all I get is that message with just one option - cancel printing. Tried going to the printer's option folder but I can't disable the monitoring. What will I do? Thanks
