The printer has several problems going on. It keeps stopping and starting in the middle of coping it dosen't matter whether it is one page or several pages. Some times the print is so small you can hardly read it. It also seams to take to much time before it starts to print.
Does this printer connected to the walloutlet directly? if not please connect it to directly...if still not working you just need to unplug the power cord and press the # and 6 key. while holding them both replug the power cord and release the two buttons once the printer starts up.. it will also go off then you can turn it on.. t ry copying again..

PG510 and CL511 cartridges have a memory chip which records the number of pixels printed to give an approximate ink level so it won't know if you have added more ink. These levels cannot be re-set. The error message on computer screen should give instructions to continue printing with an "empty" cartridge which normally involve holding the Stop/Reset button on the printer for more than 5 seconds whilst the message is still on the PC screen. You may have to do this once for each of the 2 cartridges.
Make sure you are using genuine Lexmark cartridges. Lexmark products work best with original supplies. Lexmark does not recommend the use of refilled, re-manufactured, or clone cartridges. You might not get the print quality you expect from ink that is specially formulated by Lexmark. Check your cartridge ink levels. From the printer operator panel, go to Maintenance > View Ink Levels. Replace the cartridge that has low ink level. If your ink levels are still substantial for printing and you are using genuine Lexmark supplies, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for further assistance.
After few head cleaning, ink counter running low, so ink ligh (red) flashing. Then ink counter runing out, so the light stayed on. After replacing both of ink, red light stayed on, because the compatible ink (chip) not recognized by printer. Check epson status monitor. Use original ink or refill and reset ink level counter.
Hi and thank you for using fixya:
On this specific printer model this light means that your paper has jammed, you need paper, or your ink is low. Please re-start your computer and printer and try again. If problem persists check ink levels on the printer settings (computer)
Disregard the monitor information and rely on the printer.
On the left panel of the printer are your indicator lights and buttons. Push the button immediately to the left of the 'ink drop' light [looks like a little tear drop]. Open the cover and the printhead assembly will move to the left and stop. Look very closely and find that little 'ink drop' imprinted into the plastic in the very middle of the printer where the printhead assembly stopped. That 'ink drop' will line up wih the ink cartridge that needs replacing. Push that button on the left again and the printhead assembly will either return to the 'replace' position, or move to the next ink cartridge that needs replacing. Keep pushing that button just once at a time until the printhead assembly identifies all cartridges that need replacing and moves into the 'replace' position. This 'replace' position will be on the right side of the printer where the opening occurs that allows the top cover of the printhead assembly to open.
Change the appropriate cartridges and you should be good to go.
i am sure this is the same problem as the 440cn. each cartridge has an optical window on it where the sensor measures the ink level. what u do is put a folded piece of paper over this window and reinsert the cartridge. this makes the sensor think that cartridge is full and should reset the ink meter. the printer should work fine.
