Not sure how to post a new topic so I'm hoping this gets to the correct person. I just replaced the ink Cartridge on our DM100i and it won't print at all, I mean the cartridge is discharging ink, but it's not ending up on the envelope. Purged the heads, took the print head out and cleaned it up. Ran the update on the machine but it won't print. I was printing just fine before I changed out the cartridge. Any clue an what to do to correct this issue.

I found this info on the PB website:
"The DM100i may be in seal-only mode, which disables printing. Press Home to return to the Home screen and resume printing."
I hope this helps solve your problem!

Thank you for your post. When you are experiencing a poor print quality or no print at all on the DM100i / DM200L mail machine, if you are using a Pitney Bowes brand Ink Cartridge, you can follow the directions below. If you are not using a Pitney Bowes brand Ink Cartridge, we will need to ask you to obtain a Pitney Bowes Ink Cartridge.
If the Ink Cartridge weighs 1.4 oz. it is empty (a full Ink Cartridge will weigh 2.4 oz.). If your Ink Cartridge is 1.4 oz, you will need a new Ink Cartridge.
Print a $0.00 stamp. If the print quality is good, you can process your mail. If the print is still poor, please follow these directions:
If the print quality is still poor, repeat steps 1-7 one more time. If the print is still poor, it will then be best to place a service request.

I had the same problem with a replacement cartridge - I primed the ink tank and left it in the machine over the weekend.
By Monday morning it was printing normally after a few envelopes. Hope this helps,

Thank you mle505!!
I had the same issue when changing from an outdated machine to a newer machine.
I waited from Saturday morning til Monday morning, did a "Purge" and then a Test Print and IT PRINTED!!
