Hi Hans. Welcome to justanswer. Does your magenta cartridge have a chip on top of it? If yes, remove it and replace it with the one that earlier worked fine. (the one which got empty). Now put the cartridge into the printer and check if it works or not.

Are you replacing the cartridge with printer turned OFF?

I am using ubuntu and wifi connection --I see I could get a new printer cheaper -it is irritating my a lot-thanks anyhow

Most probably the mechanism which identifies the cartridge is faulty. There is an infrared light source and a sensor in between the ink tube and the spring device, and it is the same place where the leaver which moves with the ink level is situated. It is the sensor, the infrared source or the circuitry which may be defective.You can either take it to a repair shop or can buy a new cheaper alternative.-------------------------------------------------------------------Please rate the chat POSITIVELY.
