Ink not made for your printer has risks. 20 years as Canon rep taught me this. Yields: are affected by resolution, type of paper, condition of print head, condition of ink jets, all ink jets and lasers are mfg'd under lisence to Canon. You have the best! Anytime supplies are cheaper, something is left out. used cartridges usualy leak air and drip ink ck for stains under print head. cartridge has used blotter also drips. Cheaper cartridges contain less ink, no free lunch. Fill it yourself 1 or 2 times and do it right. Put the printer in your shower for twenty minutes if you see excess leaked ink. Allow to air dry for a few days then install new cartridges. Run all the Nozzle checks and print head utilities. Touch nothing else on the inside. This will fix it or f@#%k it up for good

Greyscale is color not black only.
You can print in black and it will look grayscale only darker, printers are a pain to work with after a year has gone by, I can expect almost a half hour to print something with my $400 epson because one of the colors is out even though I never printed in the last year a colored page. I take the color cartirges out and they are empty, but I only print a page 2-3 times a year. I use the scanner all the time. Brother and epson have their print heads in the printer not the cartridge so make sure your inks are always have something in it or it will be miricle for the printer to last more than a year. Check colors every other week. One Epson printer only lasted 3 months because I never used it(print head dried up). Never use the set up with tubes running outside printer to small tanks of ink if you only use it occationally.
Yes, there a few items you need to consider with respect to HP 61 (or 61XL) cartridge errors messages on any HP Deskjet 1000 through 3510 printer model: If you get an HP 61 /
61XL integrated ink cartridge refilled (i.e. currently offered at Costco or
Frys today) or if you buy a remanufactured/compatible HP ink cartridge, the ink
levels cannot be reset (HP has a smart chip embedded within the nozzle plate at
base of ink cartridge which counts the drops and then registers as
empty).....so you'll just need to live with it and ignore ink low, non-genuine, counterfeit messages and similar while you are using these
types of aftermarket supplies. The first video below provides an overview of this low ink phenomena.
If the new (or
refilled/reman/compatible) HP 61 / 61XL ink cartridge refuses to complete the
printer alignment following cartridge installation, then the ink cartridge
either has a connectivity issue with the flexible printed circuit cable (inside
unit where cartridge mates with cable), rear cartridge contacts or cable
contacts are dirty with ink residue, or the cartridge is suffering from
marginal internal electrical performance. Ensure you press OK or Cancel up
to six times to clear out the printer error log. These
types of severe cartridge errors (i.e. Incompatible cartridges, Black/Color
cartridge(s) problem / Cartridge not intended for this printer, etc.) typically
indicate the internal micro-electronics of the HP 61 cartridge are electrically
damaged. The cartridges electrical wire runs at rear and lower side of the ink
cartridge are very delicate and are somewhat susceptible to ink attack over
time, which can lead to premature failures. In addition, the older the
cartridge the higher the chance of an internal electrical failure due to prolonged
ink exposure and subsequent circuit corrosion.
I suggest you run a Tap 41 diagnostic test to check cartridges
electrical health (this is a forced service test so the printer will attempt to
send whether cartridges are good or not); Refer to Inkjet411 youtube videos
Lexmark does not recommend the use of refilled, re-manufactured or clone cartridges. Not only that you might not get the print quality you expect from ink that is specially formulated by Lexmark but you'll never know if the cartridge will actually work with your printer or harm your printer. I highly recommend that you replace your compatible cartridges with genuine Lexmark cartridges to get the best printing results.
First it is not advisable to use other catridge other than epson because it will damage your printer. Because the printer have specialized chip that detect epson cartridge only. It will be okay for 2-3 times but later on it will say out of ink even you put new cartridge. I suggest if your printer had reset ink cartridge, just reset it and turn off your printer and computer for 5 mins. Then to restart on fresh mode and then try to print again. Next time use epson only because later it will not detect ink cartridge any more.
Hi, when an ink cartridge runs low in your HP Officejet 5610 All-in-One printer, you will see a message on the printer's display screen. Faded-looking text or pictures also indicate low ink. Ensure print quality by replacing ink cartridges when they run low.
Things You'll Need:
* HP #27 or #56 black, #22 color or #58 color photo print cartridge, or compatible equivalent
Turn printer on if it is off. Never attempt to change the ink cartridge if the printer is off. If it is off, it will not properly position or release ink cartridges, and attempting to change the ink cartridges may damage the printer.
Open the print-carriage door, located on the right side of the printer. The print carriage will automatically move into the access area.
Push down on the top edge of the cartridge you are replacing to pop it out of its slot. Remove the print cartridge and discard or recycle.
Pull off the protective tape on the new print cartridge using the pink tab. Do not touch any part of the cartridge except the black plastic. Touching the contacts or ink nozzles under the protective tape can damage the cartridge and result in poor print quality.
Hold the cartridge upright and push gently forward into the empty ink cartridge slot until it clicks.
Most Cannon Printers will warn you of this specially if your using re manufactured ink and it shows up in the print queue.Just ignore this message and print normally! Bypassing this warning will not damage printer!!
when you refill the cardtridge, you can not reset the ink level... because refilling doesn't show the ink levels.. you no need to worry. if ink is there in the carttridge it will print...
Shouldn't worry about it. They are only a rough guide. The only time to worry about it is when the printer stops working and it has told you it's run out of ink!
My color has not worked well in the past few months. Now I get the message Unable to Print, Use Troubleshooting and rountine maintenance chapter in user's manual. I've tried everything it told me. I've removed all ink cartridges and left them upright (they are ALL brand new) and cleaned all the ink ports. I've cleaned the machine several times. It's told me there's no ink cartrige, I've replaced them, turned the machine off and on, unlplugged, etc. Then go to print and I get the same message again and it won't print. The machine is almost 2 years old and has worked fine until about 6 months ago when the magenta stopped working all together. Now this. Any help? Thanks.
The ink detection is a critical function of the printer.
Ink actually acts as a lubricant for the heads, and running (Printing) without ink is equavalent to driving a car without oil.
I.E. It will seize eventually....
Hopefully you didn't print much without the ink, and your heads are still in good shape...
Here is a chip reset procedure....
With the original chip now attached to the compatible cartridge (you may need double sided tape to get the chip to stick well to the cartridge), and with the cartridge now in the printer, Press and hold the Reset/OK Button for 5 seconds to reset the chips.
The "Ink Low" dialog box will pop up (similar to photo 1 below)
Continue to print until the "ink has run out" dialog box pops up (similar to photo 2 Below) Click "OK" to continue to print.
The "Ink Low" dialog box may reappear, if so repeat the first 2 steps
Then the "once empty" dialog box will pop up (similar to photo 3 Below) Click "Yes" to continue to print
The "Not Liable" dialog box will pop up (similar to photo 4 below). Click "Yes" to continue to print
Continue to print until the "remaining level of ink" dialog box pops up (similar to photo 5 Below) Click "OK" to continue to print
Another dialog box will pop up with the "press and hold the Resume" or "press and hold the Paper Feed" button (similar to photo 6). Press and hold the "STOP/RESET" button (for Canon MP Series) or "PAPER FEED" button (for Canon IP Series) for 5 seconds. DO NOT Click "Back" or "Cancel Printing"
The "Ink Monitor" dialog box will appear and the printer will continue to print. (similar to photo 7) In the event that that the "press and hold the Resume " dialog box pops up again, Press and hold the Paper Feed Button or Stop/Reset Button for 5 seconds
