The possible reason that this could happen is that when the chip connected to the ink is malfunctioning or the printer head that reads the chip on the ink cartridge is the one that's malfunctioning. Try replacing the cartridge with a new one first and see if it continues to happen. If not, then you might want to have your printer checked by a qualified technician.

My ink was showing low so i just bought lexmark combi ink from tesco L111 number 34 and 35 and yet printer is still showing ink as empty why is this printer is p4350 model


use the menu on the printer and select the printer options-> ink cartridge-> new ink cartridge and the ink meter should be reset.
Remember that the printer does not actually read the amount of ink in the cartridge it makes predictions about the ink levels based on the number of pages printed on the cartridge.

When I go to print my printer says Color cartridge low, so I put a new one in and I get the same message. After an hour I went and returned the cartridge(thinking it was that and I put the New New one in...


It may be a bad contact between the cartridges chip and the contacts inside the printer.
They can be cleaned very gently inside, by using a cotton bud, and suitable cleaning fluid, such as either foam spray cleaner, or a professional product like SERVICOL.
You will only need a tiny amount to clean off the contacts if that is the problem. they sometimes just get fussy when a small amount of ink residue, or dust, gets in the way.
If the ink is still reported as low, it may be an actual fault in the printer unfortunately, stopping it reading the ink amount correctly.
But by far the most common problem is just needing a clean inside.
Good luck.

How do you check the ink levels of the cartridges on a hp deskjet 940c


Hi,
If the ink level is low in a print cartridge, the Print Cartridge Status light stops flashing when the printer’s top cover is opened. When you open the panel the ink cartridges slide to the center , as far as checking the ink level find and right click on the printer icon, click properties, and find ink cartridges and ink levels.
Thanks
Shereena.

New ink cartriges in MP350. Still saying check ink. Why?


If you are using remanufactured cartridges, the low ink warning is normal. Since the printer cannot detect the amount of ink in the cartridge, the OEM companies place a chip inside of each cartridge that counts the number of pages that you print. When the cartridges reach a certain number of pages, they automatically tell your printer that you are running low on ink. Unfortunately, when the cartridge remanufactured the cartridges, the chip is unable to be reset. Here is a link that may help you bypsas the warning for Canon printers:

If this does not help, there may be a setting in your printer preferences where you can disable the ink level indicator.

Can one reset the Lexmark P6250 printer refilled cartridge?


No, you can usually tell your printer to "ignore ink levels" when it gives the ink low warning on your computer screen. As long as they print just keep printing until they run out.

Ink level didn't change


s.gif Deskjet 5100 series
  1. Click Start or c01319360.gif , click All Programs , click Hewlett-Packard , and then click Printer Assistant .
  2. Click Utilities .
  3. Click View ink levels .
    • If a cartridge is low on ink, discontinue these steps, replace the cartridge, and then try printing again.
    • If the cartridges contain a sufficient amount of ink, continue to the next step.
  4. Click Printer Maintenance .
  5. Click Clean Cartridges .
  6. Follow the on-screen instructions.
ISSUE: After installing a new HP Inkjet print cartridge, the ink level indicator remains at the previous level. SOLUTION: Continue to print and ignore the ink level indicator. The print cartridge is full of ink, it just is not being measured accurately.

NO WAY TO TELL WHICH INK IS LOW OR NEEDS REPLACING ON STYLUS C88+


Sounds as if you have either Linux or a Mac computer. There are ink level monitors for these operating systems, However there can be problems installing them.

On Windows the ink level monitor should pop up when printing. It is part of the printer utilities. Open printer properties and set the options desired.

When the printer stops printing, press the ink button and remove the indicated cartridge and replace. If more than one remove and shake next to your ear, replace the empty cartridges only. A tiny amount of ink remains in the cartridge when empty. This amount is so small it has a distinct sound signature compared to a part used cartridge.

Hp 5150 deskjet says that it is low on color ink


The low ink warning is actually normal for remanufactured cartridges. Since the printer cannot detect the amount of ink in the cartridge, the OEM companies place a chip inside of each cartridge that counts the number of pages that you print. When the cartridges reach a certain number of pages, they automatically tell your printer that you are running low on ink. Unfortunately, when the cartridges are remanufactured, the chip is unable to be reset. The prints should still be the same quality. You can either press the "Resume" or "OK" button to continue printing, or go into your printer settings and manually disable the ink level indiactor.

Refilling Ink in Canon Pixma MP830


Hello, I found this in a repair manual for the MP830. summery is to press and hold the stop/reset button for 5 or more seconds. I copied the info from the manual too. The remaining ink amount unknown. [1683] (Applicable ink tank icon) The remaining level of the following ink cannot be correctly detected. An ink tank which has once been empty is installed. Replace the applicable ink tank with a new one. Printing with a once-empty or refilled ink tank can damage the print head. If printing is continued without replacing the refilled ink tank, press the Stop/Reset button for 5 sec. or longer to record the use of a refilled ink tank. Note: After the above operation, the function to detect the remaining ink amount is disabled.
