I need to reset my ink levels on my lexmark s305 after refilling cartridges


I managed to successfully refill the black cartridge for the S305; I did it when the printer warned of 'very low black ink' (although it didn't print very well - i.e. grey - until the following day). It kept displaying 'low ink' but printed fine for a few months.
I think if you can catch it before the printer decides it needs an 'official' refill or replacement then it works (although when exactly this is is a mystery, as it always displays 'low' for black ink).
Yesterday, the printer decided it wouldn't print until the cartridge was changed.
Refilled; waited for half a day;replaced several times; turned the printer on and off 5 times with no cartridge in (to see if it would wipe the printer's memory of the cartridge); and spent about 4 hours online trying to find a solution.
If it starts working tomorrow, I'll let you know. I don't want to mess about with software that may reset the ink levels. (If anyone finds some that works, please post!)
It looks like Lexmark have ensured they can pile in the cash with their original cartridges.
I've heard about generic cartridges that are chipped to avoid the above problem - I'll visit my local refill store soon.
There must be a way round this!
Cheers, Fronter

Unable o clean


HTML clipboardHi If your brother printer has been left unused for some time it is probably clogged? And the inbuilt cleaning facility does not help then you will probably need to buy a Magic Inkjet Flush Print Head Cleaning Kit.

Which you can find on Ebay.
http://tinyurl.com/yfx2y5k
Although it is possible to take the Brother printers apart, it is too difficult for most people.
To view what´s inside a Brother Printer click on next line...

http://magicinkjetflush.com/images/Unclog_Refill_Brother_Printers.jpg
Therefore, what we suggest is to make cleaning cartridges using the Dr.EpSUN Refill Tool...
Then use them to flush the print head (usually at the end of long tubes near to the back of the Brother printer)
*NEVER TOUCH THE WHITE star shaped PIN... under ink cartridges... because once pessed in... it cannot be used !
Also in most cases a single cleaning cartridge for black and 1 for colour is all you will need.
If you only have FULL INKS and need to make a cleaning cartridge use Dr.EpSUN Refill Tool to empty ink cart...
Save the ink in a clean glass jar or similar make cleaning cartridge then once unclogged simply use Dr.EpSUN Refill Tool
to refill with your saved ink.

How to make Brother Cleaning Cartridges
If you wish to see photos? You can also follow the procedure for Epson C80 in the Magic Inkjet Flush Manual.

Using FREE Dr.EpSUN Refill Tool.
To refill Brother inks... or if printer has been left unused and you need to unclog print head? (To make a cleaning cartridges *Fill empties with Magic Inkjet Flush instead of Ink / Then print rectangles using Magic Inkjet to FLUSH print heads once prints appear without white lines simply replace with inks and continue printing rectangles untill all Magic has been flushed out of print head.)

How to refill Empties...
1. Secure empty Brother ink cartridge UPSIDE DOWN in a vice or similar.
2. ONLY HALF fill Dr.EpSUN Refill Tool with warm Magic Inkjet Flush (or correct color Ink if refilling with ink)
3. Then Holding Dr.EpSUN Refill Tool upright... cover metal tip with a tissue and expell any trapped air until ink appears.
4. Insert metal tip into circular ink outlet hole of upturned cartridge... until black rubber makes a GOOD seal.
Holding both securely...
5. Do NOT TRY TO FILL Instead. PULL UP on the plunger of Dr.EpSUN REFILL TOOL.
6. Air will bubble up through the Magic/ink whilst escaping from cartridge creating a vacum.
7. Now... Simply allow plunger to retract and the Magic/ink will automatically refill the cartridge for you.
8. STOP filling before the Dr.EpSUN Refill Tool is empty otherwise air will entering.
9. Repeat until ink cartridge is full.

How to FLUSH a BROTHER print head.

10. Place filled cartridge into printer and you are ready to print.
Use print head cleaning to prime which will also fill the ink tubes... then....
11. Print rectangles of the problem colour(s) using test sheets (see below) to prime ink.

As found in the manual, here are the print test sheets for printing rectangles depending on colour(s) with problem.
Just choose... Yellow, Magenta, Grey Tones etc...

PRINT TEST SHEETS FOR USE WITH MAGIC INKJET FLUSH

Once prints appear to be normal simply replace the Magic Inkjet Flush with ink cartridges and continue printing rectangles untill flushed.

Your printer takes Lexmark #23 black cartridge and #24 color. They list on Lexmark for about $22 US for the black and $24 for the color.
