I have a canon mg5320 printer. I just filled 4 of yhe 5 cartridges but it still shows them almost empty, what can I do?


This is perfectly normal. Your printer has no idea you filled the cartridges. Keep using the printer - until it stops with 'ink out' error, then press the 'OK' button (on printer) momentarily. If that clears the error, you can resume printing.
If pressing OK doesn't do anything, press and HOLD the 'STOP' button for about 6 seconds - or until the error clears. This will disable the ink monitor - for the 'empty' cartridge.
You will have to repeat same process for each cartridge that turns 'empty'. Once all cartridges are disabled, you don't have to do anything - except keep refilling the ink.

How to read ink levels in an epson nx110


All Epson printers (well, the ink ones) have a small utility built-in called the STATUS MONITOR. If you click on the MAINTENANCE tabbed page in the Properties, you can start this just by clicking on the item. It will show the ink levels. Normally, this status monitor should start up whenever you print - with an option to show the ink levels, as they do not auto appear when printing, compared to the option shown above. Note that the monitor does NOT actually shown the real ink levels as the chips on the cartridges and the internal electronics within the printer simply work on the number of prints made - so often when showing empty - there will in fact be ink left unused inside the cartridges. For this reason alone, worth your while getting some refillable cartridges and bulk ink (normally in 100ml bottles - so you would get equivalent about 10+ refills and save lots of hard earned dosh!) but you would also need an inexpensive chip resetter. My advice is get the refillables with ink (most compatible inks are as good as - some better - than Epson's own expensive original cartridge inks) and when one cartridge shows requires replacing, you remove all the cartridges, fill them all, reset the chips and replace - that way you show all as full and on ly have one cleaning cycle - thus also saving lots of ink normally wasted when replacing one cartridge - each requiring a cleaning cycle and loss of other inks. I have no idea where in the World you live so cannot recommend a supplier - just use ebay.com or amazon.com to find suitable suppliers convenient to yourself.

How can I stop ink spots on photos and documents?


Ink leakage can occur if the bulk ink reservoirs are at a level above the printer. Let the two in the same level.
This can also occur because of quality of paper or ink.

Ink level indicator is showing empty, but just recently replaced


I have to ask this question of you, just to make sure this is not an issue. Are you using a factory new ink or toner cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridges that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks or toner causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead or photo conductors.
If you are using factory new ink or toner cartridges, then please call the manufacturer’s Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

Yellow cartridge warning light showing and printer does not recognise cartridge. Had artanium bulk system attached for 12 months, so the system has been ok for last 12 months. put standard epson cartridge...


First try power cycling the printer to reset the chip on your bulk cartridge (turn off printer, unplug, wait 30 sec, plug in, turn on). If that didn't fix it then you may have damaged the chip on your bulk cartridge with static electricity when you removed it from the printer. If the chip is damaged you need a new chip if you can get it or a new bulk cartridge (to get the new chip).

Light cyan ink didn't work on epson 1400


Get yourself a couple of sets of empty cartridges from cobraink.com.
It is so easy to fill your own from the removable rubber cap, on the top of the cartridge. Not to mention what you will be doing for the environment.
I have been using these for over a year and have saved a ton of money
This man also sells the ink that you will need. ALSO tell him to send them empty, otherwise he will automaticly send them full of "pigment "ink, because you want to use an ink dye

Status Monitor says ALL ink cartridges empty


Using recycled ink cartridges in your inkjet printer is never a more economical way to do colour printing, unless you are willing to become a master technician on your particular product and have ready access to print heads and machine engine unit replacements, you will also need manufactures service software/website to reset waste counters/error codes.

It is expensive to print in colour full stop. Printing cost is at least 30cents inkjet and 10cents toner/laser per sheet

Laser b/w and colour is far cheaper per sheet, but setup costs are one time expensive but they are also a lot more reliable printing system.

Your machine will stuff up sooner rather than later when using non genuine consumable, and when it does it will cost more than the machines worth to even look for repair, so be prepared if choosing this road to purchasing a new printer every few cartridges if you are lucky.

If your using non genuine products and you want machine looked at by a professional the first thing you will need to do is install all genuine products in to your machine to allow correct fault diagnostics to be done, this is before any repair cost that maybe incurred.

Recycled/refills/aftermarket ink cartridge faults include – not recognizing ink, poor print quality, error codes, wont come to ready, erratic carriage movement, lines, waste counter issues and also paper feed problems, circuit board/connection faults caused by leaked ink .Not all faults are immediately apparent it takes time for the poison ink to replace that in the supply system then issues begin.


Cheap printing can be achieved using b/w lasers they cost less than 2 cent per sheet and have a brilliant reputation for print quality and dependability. Then if you need the occasional colour go to the shop, let them have the hassle, stress, time and expense of running the machines and the cost is still relatively cheap to you.

There are many consumers still printing with 10 year old laser machines, you would be extremely lucky to find a 3-5 year old inkjet.

If you must recycle well buy one that has already been proven to be adaptable to the concept, so that means go back to older units that went so clever.

Older Lexmarks, Epsons and HP were once easy targets, there was and is a lot of development gone into managing bulk ink deleivery systems, software has been cracked and parts can be sourced.

Inkmizer canon/epson bulk ink modified printers

Chipresetter be prepared for some frustrations and mess.

P.s. Most new machines come with starter inks that do not contain as much as new ones ussally 3ml instead of 5ml to enable cheaper selling cost, but also note that about 2ml of ink is in the tubes that run from ink carts to print head.
