SOURCE: refilled my black ink but my color ink is empty so it wont print

Put everything that you are trying to print.
If you have another black ink cartridge then put that in the color slot.

First, download the software at http://www.box.net/shared/4yblbn34kg

Secondly, to run the software your printer has to be in service mode. Do that by
- unplug cable
- press and hold "power" button
- plug cable
- press "resume" and release
- release the "power" button
At this stage, your computer will detect a new hardware

Run the software.

SOURCE: wouldn't print black-and-white if the color cartridge is empty

Select true black and white. Any other setting uses the colour cartridge to sharpen the printing.

Black cartridge is new. registers low ink level and does not print at all.


Unplug the printer from the wall. Noe remove the power brick from the printer for 60 seconds. This will reset any error message the printer is getting. Plug the printer back in.

Turn on the printer. Open up the printer and take out the black cartridge and reseat it. Do the same for the color cartridge. Now close the printer and it will print an alignment page. Any error messages?

If you still get the error message, then it's possible that the sensor in the Dell Series 5 ink cartridge is bad. If this is a new Dell Series 5 ink cartridge, then take it back to the place of purchase for a replacement or refund.

black = black side(left) color = color side(right)

photo cartridge = black side(left color = color side(right)

Dell Series 5 ink cartridges have a sensor in them that cannot be reset. Article on refilling Dell ink cartridges.

Dell Series 5 ink cartridges can be purchased at Staples, Walmart or Dell's Website.

It's possible to purchase a Dell Series 5 ink cartridge with a bad sensor. Please take it back to the place of purchase for a replacement.

Refilled ink catridges and printer still shows that the ink is low


If you unplug the printer from the wall and remove the power brick for 60 seconds, this will reset any error messages the printer has. I would then plug everything back in.

Power on the printer.

Open the printer(with the power on) and take out the Dell Series 5 black cartridge and then reseat it. I would then take out the color Dell Series 5 ink cartridge and reseat it. Now close the printer and it will print an alignment page.

I have a Lexmark X4650 I refilled the cartridge and now I cannot get the printer to recognize the cartridge it prints black only and tells me Color is low . any suggestions on how to bypass this prob get...


I own a Cartridge World ink refilling store and I can't refill the Lexmark 36 and 37 cartridges. Your printer deactivates the electronics on this cartridge when the ink levels get low. Your printer needs a black and a color cartridge with functioning electronics to print. I NEVER recommend Lexmark printers. They are poorly made, don't accept refills easily, and have the most expensive ink across manufacturers and it is designed to clog your cartridge unless you use it quickly. If you keep this machine you are stuck buying Lexmark brand ink (the return program cartridges are a little cheaper though).

Just installed refilled color and black ink cartridges from walgreens.first refill on the color, second on the black. the printer does not recognise the new full ink levels....low still shows. any ideas?...


I found these instruction at out-of-warranty.com They seem like a possible solution.

Steps:
  1. Press Cancel and Power, at the same time.
  2. Then, the Unit will ask for a Key Combo, press blue, green, gray buttons (in order) for this.
  3. “Support Menu” should appear.
  4. Go to Resets menu and use the semi-full reset.
I hope this is helpful. Good luck.

Printer not printing in black. Print Color only.


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. First of all please try the refill cartridge on some other printer. If it’s working fine on the other printer then check the settings of the printer which are by default 960 dpi (dots per inch) but due to some reason this size has been reduced. Now you have to change this setting to more than 960, around 1200 dpi and then check out that if your printer works fine.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.



Thanks

Apparently I just had the same problem and I managed to fix it! Click on the OK button on the printer to ignore the low ink level error, then you'll be able to print and scan.
