How to reseat a cartridge?
While reseating a cartridge is not difficult but there are a number of errors that can occur if the user does not manage it properly. Reseating a cartridge should not be a difficult task for anyone with a passing knowledge of printers.
The reseating error can occur after the user has replaced the black ink cartridge. It is a common problem with the black ink cartridge. The user may attempt to replace the cartridge number of times, clean the contacts and restart the plotter. If there is a problem with replacing the black ink cartridge that cleaning the contact does not fix, then it is best to simply replace the carriage assembly first. If this does not solve the problem then the user may want to consider replacing the trailing cable.
Another problem that occurs is that after a number of reinsertions, the black cartridge gets worn out. A solution would be to simply purchase a new black ink cartridge and replace the carriage assembly in order to ensure that the user does not have to continue to insert and reinsert the ink cartridge. The contact ribbon can get wrinkled, causing the contacts to line up improperly or not at all.
The most common solution to reseating is to clean the printer thoroughly, cleaning out the waste tank in the printer. If there is a serious problem with reseating it could be simply because the waste tank is full. The user should take care of the waste tank that is currently in the printer, and then clean it out completely.
Depending on the type of cartridge, the user may need to ensure that he keeps away from the bottom of the cartridge, if the cartridge contains a print head, the user must avoid all direct contact, as this could cause the print head to crack. If the cartridge is a print tank it is not difficult to ensure that the tank does not break; as long as the seal at the bottom stays intact.
