Black is full but it won't print

Hi there! After I refilled the original inkjet with black ink, it printed some pages and afterwards it showed the following problem: the black inkjet is empty and it demands from me to cancel the print job. However, it's not empty since I have already checked that... Moreover, it doesn't let me use these tools for cleaning (in the properties menu)... Any idea?

    Thanks for the tips but I have already tried... Taking out the ink and re-placing it, emptying it and re-filling it, un-clogging the ink, trying to use the software provided but in any option it pops up this window that says I have to cancel the print job...

    Would it help if I mention that the printer indications show an "E4" problem?

Do you have the software for your printer? You may clean the printer using the clean option on the software.

Furthermore, check the ink. Check if it is clogged or something. Try removing the and insert again. You may also clean the part you insert the ink.

Hope it helps!

Costco inkjet refill


I would suggest getting name brand ink and try that out. We tried several refills from different companies and always had problems. If you just opened the cartridge from Costco they would most likely take it back.
As a test, try both Printing and making a Copy and see if you get the same problem.

Unfortunately, many inkjet printers require all the cartridges to be present and not empty in order to print anything. An inexpensive solution would be to buy a inkjet refill kit and chip reset utility. (many cartridges are "smart" and require a reset in order for them to think they're full)

Streaky printing


Hi,
At most cases of printer, especially which have done refill at cartridge, print quality is poor or streaky. Many factors influencing this printed result. To overcome print quality is poor, maybe following tips can usefull to prevent printed pages are missing lines or streaky.

First step is ordinary to be done many people when print quality is streaky that is doing cleaning. To get good printed result, sometime this facility is used more than once.
Use Ink Refill with Quality Nicely
For printer have refilled, sometime the quality of printing is also influenced by ink. If will fill your printer again, use ink which the was quality of nicely. I have tested some refill inks at cartridge which have been ascertained still nicely ( sorry: I do not want to publicize result of this attempt). In the reality result make me surprise, there ink of refill making the printed quality is crummy. To choose ink refill read following tips :
  • See viscosity of ink, every merk of ink refill have difference of viscosity. Don’t use Ink refill too jell. Difference of this viscosity is no measure reference viscosity of ink from factory maker of printer
  • Don’t fear to try some inking merks. Done this, you’d find refill ink fitt with your printer. I now only using one merk of refill ink ?.
  • This suggestion of forum, but I still not yet proved. May believe or not. Good ink aroma of soft usually.
Change Original Cartridge
This is last choice. A lot not like to do this ways, because price of original cartridge still costly. Alternative, you can use compatible cartridge which the was price of cheaper than original cartridge. At newest printer, usually there are two until four cartridge in one printer. And price four same cartridge almost at the price of printer even there are some costlier.

Let me know !

Thanks

Fame !

Dell 926 injection refill kit didnt work


The ink your purchased is likely a cheap watered down version of what your printer is meant to take. You may notice that the ink smears when you rub the page directly after printing. Why you chose to use the blue and red ink to make black blows my mind. These refill kits are insanely cheap and buying the black could not have been much more. Not using black ink in the black cartridge would explain why your print is faded. Also, there is no way to reset the ink levels on this type of cartridge. As long as the printer still prints, just ignore the ink level indicator and print until the ink runs dry. I recommend Cartridge World for ink refills because they use high quality ink to manufacturer specified volumes while still saving you money.

My printer wont print black colour on pics or word docs


Hi, sounds like a dodgy ink cartridge. I would purchase a new black cartridge and fit and try that. Refilling epson cartridges isn't a good idea, if you can't afford originals, but compats instead of refilling them. a good place to buy is www.choicestationery.com I've never had any problems with their carts.
