You haven't mentioned what printer model but you can try th following.
Firstly, try removing your new cartridge and temporarily putting the old one back. Sometimes this will then show as a full cartridge even though it is empty, because the sensor electronics appears to get confused. Next, turn off your printer and turn it back on again, then take the old cartridge out and put the new one back. I cannot guarantee this will work, but it will be worth a try.

What Chip?
The ink volume usually is controlled by the software that comes with the printer....You may want to re-install the software that came with the computer first.

My hP deskjet F4288 shows ERROR symbol


I would remove the refill. HP voids the warranty if the cartridge leaks. I have seen refills leak and destroy the printer. Replace with a brand new cartridge. If that is not the solution you want. You can remove the cartridge and clean it with rubbing alchohol and a paper towel or a q-tip, just make sure there is no fuzz left when your done. Also if you have the HP software installed on your computer, there is usually a cleaning program built into the software.

My printer is not printen


have you been printing with it before? check your catridges to see if you have ink, the printer has a light on it's face which says online, is that like showing green b4 you start printing, if not so check your cables and make sure they are firmly fixed. check for paper jams, if all these don't work reinstall the drivers, from the cd which came with printer
