PRINTER CARTRIDGE PROBLEMS

I cleaned both the contacts on the cartridges and the print head and the printer still says there are print head problems. What's next?

PRINTER CARTRIDGE PROBLEMS

cleaning the cartridges and the print head did not solve the problem. I'm still getting a print head not detected error although I can check the ink levels so that tells me it's communicating with the cartridges just not printing.

PRINTER CARTRIDGE PROBLEMS

@STUPID3

 

Thank you for the update.

 

Please reset the printer and check.

 

Reset the printer to recover from printer failures.

  1. With the printer turned on, disconnect the power cord from the printer.

  2. Unplug the power cord from the power source.

  3. Wait 60 seconds.

  4. Reconnect the power cord to a wall outlet and to the printer.

  5. Turn the printer on.

Please install the ink cartridges one by one.

 

If the issue still persists, replace the ink cartridges and check.

 

Have a nice day!!

PRINTER CARTRIDGE PROBLEMS

tried as suggested and disconnected the printer after first removing the cartridges then reconnected the power supply and turned the printer on and reinstalled the cartridges and it still can't see the cartridges. Anything else I can try or is it time to buy a new printer?
