First of all take the cartridge out. Make sure there is no dirt around the nozzle. Use a soft cloth to clean them. Then put the cartrdige back and turn on the printer. Now try printing. If it still shows cartridge empty but you can take prinout just restart the computer.

If cartridge still shows empty and you cannot take printout also in that case uninstall and reinstall the printer.

Thanks

    remove all the cartridges .shut off the printer .and then ON after 5 minutes.then reinsert all the cartridges properly.this will reset the printer and it will work fine.

    for further help feel free to ask through comments.

  • jamesrated Nov 28, 2008

    Please perform the following:

    1. Open the printer and remove all ink tanks.

    2. Insert a single ink tank in the printer then close the cover.

    3. Confirm whether the printer recognizes the installed tank properly. If it does, it will indicate it does not detect the other ink tanks, as they are not currently installed in the printer.

    4. Repeat steps 1-3 with another ink tank.

    5. If the printer at any time indicates two of the same ink tanks are installed, the cause will be the last tank installed. For example, if you inserted an ink tank earlier, and you later inserted another ink tank, and it said two of the same inks were installed, the cause of the issue is the last ink tank.

Hello, This happens with epson as it has a chip on the cartridge, which sometimes shows the cartridge empty even if there is some ink left on it. You can try this steps:- 1. With the printer turned on press the ink replace button, which will bring the print head to ink replacement position, pull out the cartridges one by one and cover the tip of the cartridge with some tape and shake the cartridges and reinsert it on the printer and press the ink replacement button once again, the printer will check the inks cartridges, if the inks is empty it will show the red light again, pressing the button once will bring the printer to ink replacement position with the cartridge to be replaced on the replacement position. you can also check on the printer software on the pc that which ink cartridge is emptied.
Hope this helps.

No Cartridges. Open Scanner cover, then reinstall ink cartridge. All Cartridges are full


Hi there,
No Cartridge will show on the display if the machine cannot recognize one of the cartridge or one of the ink is empty.
To make sure about the real issue unplug the mach from the power outlet then plug it back in after 10 seconds.
If the display show: "ink empty C" it means the cyan/blue needs to be replace. "ink empty M" it means the magenta/pink needs to be replace. "ink empty BK" it means that the black needs to replace. If the display shows "ink empty Y" it means that yellow needs to be replace.
Even if it looks like the cartridge is full, it really needs to be replace so that the machine will work again.
Hope this helps. Rate if it works. Thanks

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

There is a chip on your cartridge that communicates with the printer to estimate how much ink is left in the cartridge. When the chip thinks the cartridge is empty it will refuse to print any more pages no matter how much ink is left in the cartridge. These cartridges are only estimated to print "up to 840 4" x 6" photos, or 80 13" x 19" photos." If it showed half full yesterday and then you put through a large print job it is very likely the cartridge is empty. In any case once the chip thinks it's empty the cartridge needs to be replaced.

Newly replaced black ink cartridge still shows up ink supply empt


have you used the printer properties menu to recharge the ink? Just right click on the printer icon, choose properties, click on the Maintenance tab and click on the ink cartridge replacement. You have already replaced the cartridge so just click through to the end. The last thing it does is recharge it. I think this must be where it decides it has been replaced and is full.
