Phaser 6000: ! and K blinking



I have a Phaser 6000 color printer. I ordered and changed the cartriges on the printer, both black and all CYM.

The colors have been recognized, but the black indicator keeps blinking.  The error displayed is: 093-933 (change cartridge).

I put another new black cartridge in, and the same situation is happening: ! and K blinking.


Could this be due to the fact that I stopped the printer while it was doing it's post-new-cartridge calibration?  

How can I get it to re-try that calibration... the problem now is that, since it doesn't recognize the new cartridge, it doesn't even try to do anything: when I take black out and reinsert it, close the toner door, and a small engine is heard trying to start, but then it stops and ! & K start blinking. 


Thank you for any help... hope I won't have to throw away this nice printer:-(

That probably is the cause, unplug it for 5 minutes and hope it resets when it comes back on.

Re: Phaser 6000: ! and K blinking

Hello Joe, thank you for your suggestion.

Unfortnuately, the situation didn't change: I kept it unplugged for longer, and when it came back online, same situation: a little engine is heard trying to start, then it stops and the two lights come on: ! and K.

Any keys that can be pressed to trigger a self-check, or some other hard-reset kind of "shortcuts"?

Thank you!
