Error Message: Install Black Cartridge on LaserJet M1522nf

Hello:

 

I have a LaserJet M1522nf and am getting an error message stating "Install black cartridge", even though I have installed a new cartridge. I have tried 3 different new cartridges and still get the same error.

 

I am currently using this printer on a Windows Vista Home Basic computer.

 

The current cartridge I am trying is a LD Products CB436A.

 

This has been going on for months and we're using it as part of our office system. Each day this gets at me and I'm about to buy an alternate brand printer if I can't get this solved.

 

I greatly appreciate your help!

I had the same "Install Black Cartridge" error, but the problem was slightly different. 

 

With no paper in the input tray, I had the same error, even after numerous power cycles.  Turned out there was a small piece of paper lodged in the feed roller right behind the input paper cavity (no removable tray, only a removable plastic outer shell).  After removing the foreign paper, and wiping the toner off the long black feed roller, the printer powered up normally and now prints fine.

Re: Error Message: Install Black Cartridge on LaserJet M1522nf

I had this problem too - Here's what I found on the HP trouble-shooting/error message site.  The bold italics I added, that was my problem:

"Install black cartridge"       No cartridge installed with door closed.

If the paper tray has been overfilled, it can lift the toner cartridge up from its seated position, resulting in the cartridge not being detected by the MFP.

  1. Remove the toner cartridge.
  2. Remove all paper from the bottom tray.
  3. Check for any paper jam and, if found, clear it.
  4. Power cycle the printer (turn it off and then back on).
  5. Reinstall the toner cartridge, being careful to make sure it is seated properly in the MFP.
  6. Reload paper in the bottom tray; be careful not to overfill the tray.

Brilliant. Thank you very much. Was on the verge of ordering a costly new cartridge but decided to do one last search and found this solution.

 

Almost hidden somehow a receipt had gotten stuck in the feeder. Found and removed and printer is now printing better than it ever has.
