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.

ESP 7250 Not printing the gray color on the test page


Not much to go on. If you mean the black cartridge is not giving any ink, and the printer does not say the cartridge is empty you still have a problem. But it is possible to solve.
If I'm guessing right, remove the cartridge with the black ink and look in the printhead. You see the little pipe sticking up, where the black ink is going in. with a dropper, just do a few drops of cleaning fluid on that pipe and replace the cartridge. Than let the printer print some black pages, till the black ink is coming through.
It also could be the cartridge with the black ink is empty or dried. If you shake (take care you will spray ink if you don't seal the ink outlet) and you don't hear any ink in the cartridge, unless what the computer or printer thinks it still is empty.

Replaced ink cartridge still shows ink low needs to be replaced but is printing? Can it be reset?


  1. Remove your current empty cartridge from your Dell printer. Turn on your printer and lift the cover and top half of the unit. You can suspend it in place by lifting the blue plastic lever and securing it to hold up the top of the printer. At this point the ink cartridges should move to the center of the printer and be easy to access. Follow the instructions locate on your printer to remove the cartridges. You can do this by pressing on the blue tab to remove the colored cartridge or the black tab to remove the black cartridge. Once you press the tab, the cartridge cover will pop open. Carefully pull out the exposed cartridge from it’s setting. Save the empty cartridge so it can be refilled.
    Remove the sticker from the newly refilled Dell ink cartridge. Follow the directions on the opened printer to insert the cartridge. Hold the cartridge so the writing is on the top and the ink spot is on the bottom. Gently push it into the opened setting until it is securely in place. Close the cover of the cartridge holder by pressing down on it gently until it clicks into place. Remember that the black cartridge goes into the black setting and the color cartridge goes into the blue setting. Close the top of the printer. You will hear the ink cartridges move back into place.
  2. Test your newly refilled Dell ink cartridge and load your printer with paper.Print a document so either in color or black and white (depending on the type of cartridge you had refilled). Review your printed document to make sure the color is consistent and you are pleased with the outcome.
    Repeat whenever you run out of ink.

I replaced an ink cartridge because the printer stopped working and showed a message that the old cartridge is empty. However after putting the new one in but the printer still refuses to work and shows...


maybe the cartridge is wrong, release it and clean the electrical contacts, put them again one by one, if notting happen, try this
Solution As the printer operates, it moves ink from the ink cartridges into a printhead reservoir. The printer does not deliver a message when an ink cartridge goes empty, because it still has ink in the reservoir. The printer continues printing until the ink level in the reservoir falls to a first trigger point - then a message appears advising the printer owner to Replace Cartridges Soon . At this point, other cartridges that are empty but have not reached the trigger point are also mentioned in the message, to save trips to the retailer. After the first trigger point, the printer can continue printing until ink levels in the reservoir reach a second trigger point. At the second trigger point there is only enough ink left to perform vital servicing tasks, and a new message appears, saying Ink Cartridges Empty . The options offered depend on the usable inks remaining. If no options are offered, the cartridges indicated must be replaced before printing can continue. The Ink Cartridges Empty options are described in the table below: Ink colors out Option Print mode possible All Cancel None Black

AND

Cyan, Magenta, or Yellow (any or all) Black only Continue with other colors Cyan/Magenta/Yellow mode (composite black)

Text and photo quality will differ from those printed when all colors are available Light Cyan or Light Magenta (either or both) Cyan, Magenta, or Yellow (any or all)

(Black still available) Print with black ink only Grayscale

How do I change the toner?


The Fax-2480c does not use toner cartridges.
This is an inkjet and so uses ink cartridges.

There are 4 cartridges, black, yellow, cyan (blue) and magenta (red). If any of these cartridges are empty, you need replace them.

This machine takes LC-51 cartridges.
You're probably out of warranty so jsut get refills... it's cheaper

My C6280 printer says the black is empty but it is


Dear Sir,

Printer doesn't identify the ink accurately all these are controlled by software only.So it is showing your black cartridge is empty but trace amount of ink actually remained,by this you are getting black and white prints correctly.After the consumption of that trace amount of ink it may print black text as a greenish-brown because printing taking place only by means of color cartridges.So if you observed blurred text or greenish-brown text, now you can replace your ink cartridges.

i think it helps

good luck

Ink Cartridge


Some of Epson's cartridges went bad that way. It may be a bad cartridge. Get a new one, pull that one out and see what happens. If it works, call Epson for a refund. They had a class action suit for that type of thing, they lost and paid off. I would think they will help you right away.
