Dymo Labellers don't use ink, they are thermal printers. When the print fades it usually means the batteries are running out.

Canon pixma mx350 printer ink level shows exclamation mark about the icon


If you are using an ink refill kit (or buying ink that has been refilled, the ink level will not show accurately) also, if refilling yourself you must clean the pint area of the cartridge with alcohol before installation, and then run the 'clean print head' tools from you Canon menus.

I recommend buying Canon ink, at least for 1 in 4 refills to reset your ink levels.

Re-Filling Cartridges, Facts and Fiction


There are many rumors regarding re-filling cartridges, and many people have been put off by the idea due to bad quality, a messy experience or a friend told them not to do it!!
The truth is:

Basically Any HP, Canon, Lexmark or Dell two cartridge printers can be Re-filled with the same results as OEM Cartridges.

Most of the time it is VERY EASY to refill a cartridge, But also depends on a few factors.
Individual Colour Cartridges and Most new Epson Cartridges can be purchased in the AfterMarket world very easily, and the quality of them is very acceptable.
These cartridges are not worth the time to refill versus for the cost of compatibles, although I would recommend Re-Fillable cartridges for high volume users, these have refill plugs and self resetting ink levels. By using these brings the cost per cartridge down to approx $2 per colour
This still leaves all the people who have 2 Cartridges in there printers, and find that even a compatible cartridge is hard to find and still not "cheap",
Provided you have Good quality ink and the correct tools refilling these cartridges CAN BE REFILLED, But there are some tricks to remember.
1. Do not let the cartridge run completely empty, There is a sponge and lower chamber in these type, if the sponge dries and Air gets into the lower chamber, It wont work after a refill. A simple way is to top the cartridges up every weekend, just to be sure.
2. Do not use the cheapest ink you can find. Ink from USA, JAPAN and Australia is the best, Most Other ink is a powder base and has a very poor record. Use inks made from liquid, oil based ingredients. This is the closest ink to OEM standards. Powder Based inks will give a questionable output and probably clog up very quickly.
3. It is Ink, So common sense should dictate to do this over the kitchen sink. I have been Re-Filling cartridges for 6 years and still get ink on my hands!!!
4. Do Not overfill these cartridges or Ink will simply run out of the print head, if the cartridge total capacity is 20ml, use 18ml of ink just to be safe.
5. FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS, Read them before you start, then only if your confident go ahead. If you miss a step the ink can flow when you dont want it! Some cartridges require a air plug or head to be covered before you start, just make sure you READ THE INSTRUCTIONS.
6. If you change cartridges once every 6 months, is it really worth purchasing a kit that does 10 refills???

Dell 926 injection refill kit didnt work


The ink your purchased is likely a cheap watered down version of what your printer is meant to take. You may notice that the ink smears when you rub the page directly after printing. Why you chose to use the blue and red ink to make black blows my mind. These refill kits are insanely cheap and buying the black could not have been much more. Not using black ink in the black cartridge would explain why your print is faded. Also, there is no way to reset the ink levels on this type of cartridge. As long as the printer still prints, just ignore the ink level indicator and print until the ink runs dry. I recommend Cartridge World for ink refills because they use high quality ink to manufacturer specified volumes while still saving you money.

Color ink is not working


Dear Black Rose
It is strongly recommended to change your colour cartridge.
Or it can be possible that you did not use your colour cartridge for a long time.
The nozzle of colour cartridge are blocked, if you did not use your colour cartridge for a long time.
Purchase a new cartridge if you can or go for a local refiller to refill (if possible) your colour cartridge.
Thanks
