Question about Printers & Copiers
But cartridge is installed properly. i've cleaned it and reinstalled it but the Ink levels kept on blinking red.
When you look at the cart. you will see little contact points, the same are in the cart. holder cavity. Sometimes these contact points get ink on them and can not read the cart. Start the process of installing the ink cart. When the holder is positioned to install the cart. -- disconnect the power. This will keep the holder in this position so you may try to clean the contact points. Use a Q-tip and a high alcohol base cleaner. DO NOT SOAK - but dip the Q-tip into the cleaner and then gently rub the tip across the contact points in one direction -- say from left to right -- not back and forth. You should turn the tip after each pass and you may need a couple Q-tip to clean the contact area. After you are done, no more ink on the Q-tip, let the cleaner dry ( about 1 min depending on the alcohol base) then take a dry Q-tip and wipe off haze if any. MAke sure everthing is clean of the area and power on, do ink install process and try to print.

In most cases the printer driver software can have errors while being in use or is shut down. So to reset remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and then connect the Printer to be detected as a new hardware as it will be installed. Now check the printer properties to see the ink levels.
Activate head cleaning before a test is taken . Sometimes it is possible that the head is not reacting to the need of the PC command or can be an issue with ink drying or poor ink cartridge contacts.
