4 THINGS TO DO IF YOUR PRINTER DOESN'T RECOGNIZE INK CARTRIDGES

A printer is nothing without the ink that it uses to print. The original ink cartridge provided by the printer manufacturer is not feasible to buy every time, and it becomes essential to switch to a more viable alternative. Using compatible cartridges can be the most effective option while ensuring a budget that fits all your needs. But what if your printer does not recognize the ink cartridge you have specially bought for your printer model. Whether it is a laser printer or an inkjet printer, ink and cartridge issues may arise. It becomes crucial to deal with it as early as possible, or work can hamper if not correctly managed. Here are the things that will help you if your printer is not acknowledging the cartridge you have installed in your printer.

Reset The Internal Memory Of The Copier/Printer


Sometimes, your printer does not reset its internal memory automatically and hence shows disapproval for accepting the new ink cartridge in the equipment. It does not update its information like full ink and toner levels. Often, the machine is not updated to receive a new cartridge as it believes the previous cartridge is still in the machine. 


Clean The Contacts With Dirt Or Damaged Contacts 


To get printing done, several metal contacts in the new ink or toner cartridge Toronto have to be connected with similar metal contacts. But if these contacts are damaged or are dirty, they can't communicate with others. The information on the chip is not readable by the printer in this case. That is why you need to ensure that these metals are not deformed or have any dust or dirt over them.

Ensuring That You Have Picked The Right Model Or Installed It The Right Way


There are chances that you might have chosen the wrong model for the toner or ink cartridges for your printer. You need to ensure to select the model that best suits your equipment, whether it is a compatible cartridge or OEM. It is also necessary to evaluate the installation process of the ink cartridge as sometimes you can install it in an improper way which may cause difficulty for the copier/printer to recognize the cartridge.


Clear Away The Protective Strips From The New Cartridge 


A new ink or toner cartridge in Toronto always comes with a protective strip or plastic cover that initially comes with the packaging.

You need to ensure that all the strips, plastic covers or tabs are removed before installing the cartridge.
