SOURCE: installed new ink cartridge/ still saying low color

try calling 1 800 421 6699 for US.
solution
try to remove inks, then reseat it..
then remove printhead, by pushing the latch on the upper right, then put it back in. be sure that it will snap. close the door with no inks. try to look at the message, if it has the same error, put the inks on it and close the door again.. then if you still have the error message, call the hotline no. and I'm Afraid that you need a Printhead replacement or defective ink issue...
they will replace it for free..

SOURCE: printer cartridges say they are low.

there will be a reset, either software, or on the printer itself, where you inform it that you are installing new cartridges, If you told it the carts. were new, goto the manufacturers website and see if there is a software update under the Support and Drivers/Downloads section that addresses the ink reporting

SOURCE: Printer only prints with red & black inks

You should take it back and exchange it or read on below.
Most modern cartridges have an ink level chip built on to them.
Should the level drop below 25% then most of these chips lock up and will not reset.
Re-filling them will have no effect
If you are lucky you should be able to find either a chip resetter around on the internet or maybe even local
OR
Even better empty cartridges that never need to be reset.
The second option is my preference
I realise these are not for your specific printer but there are others listed on both those sites as well

Installed new ink cartridges mx 300, compatible B&W 40, color 41, printer status still says low ink, printing as if it is low ink. properly installed, tape removed, what i miss? can I check something...


Do you know what?. As a matter of fact,it is not compatible cartridges you buy. It is refurbished cartridges that repackaged with other brand as if this is their product. I say it is original cartridges that once empty and repackaged. So that's why when you install the cartridge the ink level stays low. You can make it sure by comparing it with new original cartridge. Find original cartridge,may be you can borrow from someone,which ink level still full and install on your printer. I am a hundred percent sure ink level will show properly :).

It is showing "can not


Hi Advancesys,

I'm a new user and I don't know how to send you a link to my post from 15 minutes ago, so I am re-posting here.
-------------------------------------------------
I don't know if this will solve your exact "cannot detect" problem, but it solved mine.

Problem: Cannot detect
Like other posters in this forum, I replaced all four of my ink cartridges at the same time when my MFC-490CW said they were all low. After I installed 4 (third-party brand) cartridges, the display said something like "Cannot detect ink cartridge, re-insert slowly" and indicated the cyan cartridge. Like many others, I tried this many times. I tried turning the power off, unplugging the power plug from the wall, different sequences of cartridge insertion, etc. None of this helped.

Solution: Clean the sensor
Much has been written here and in other places on the 'net about the trick of using electrical tape on the ink cartridge in the ink-level sensor window. I remembered seeing a good deal of ink on the outside of the cartridge as I removed it. This leaky ink cartridge had somehow coated either the sensor or it's associated light with blue ink, rendering it unable to detect the presence of a cartridge. I was able to clean the sensors with some Q-tips and isopropyl alcohol (not the optimum technique, but it was effective). Just to be sure, I swabbed the other sensors as I had removed all the cartridges to make room for my fat fingers. All sensors swabbed clean. The cyan was the only one covered in ink. I swabbed the cyan sensors with the alcohol until they were clean (maybe 20 Q-tips all total). I carefully dried the area with the Q-tips and let the alcohol evaporate for a minute then re-installed the ink cartridges...and printed a document. Yay!

As I said, this may not solve your particular "cannot detect" issue, but give it a try. It is a little messy but I'm back in action and hey, tattoos are hip. I just won't tell anyone why they're all the same color of blue and why I tattooed my fingers.


Good luck!

My printer Brother DCP 165C cannot print in black ink.


Your black printhead is blocked.
The printhead is deep inside the printer and has to be taken out by the expert and cleaned with the help of 'steam' and hot water. This is because not using the printer for a long time. or using low grade refill inks.
Please select new cartridge only if you are inserting a new cartridge or fully refilled cartridge. Otherwise use old cartridge option. Brother printer has a mechanical sensor and not the electronic chip in the ink cartridges.
After inserting the old used cartridge if you choose 'new cart' option it will show the "Full" ink. You can still print from the exhausted ink cart after covering the sensor in the middle by a piece of paper in emergency.

We have a Dell 944 showing Error 1102 consult user guide...cannot find the user guide. We just replaced color ink cartridge with a re-processed one ordered online. Please advise...many thanks!.


Hi there
Dell Printer 944 error message 1102
Please unplug the printer from the wall. Now remove the power brick from the back of the printer for 60 seconds. Now plug everything back in. This will reset any error messages the printer has. Now open the printer with the power on and the cartridges should go to the center to be replaced. Take out both Dell Series 5 ink cartridges and make sure the tape is off the cartridges and insert both back in and make sure the seat properly and latch. Close the printer and it should print an alignment page. If you still get the error message

Why does my Dell ink cartridge level still show up as "low ink" after refilling them?
Dell ink cartridges have a sensor that reports the ink level as low once it reaches a certain level. The sensor can not
be reset. If you refill an ink cartridge that previously reported low ink, it may print fine, but the sensor will always
report low ink. Buying or replacing ink cartridges with new Dell cartridges will resolve the low ink message.

Dell discourages ink refills. Refilling ink may lead to print quality problems, and even eventual hardware problems.
This post is in no way a validation of refilling ink cartridges.

Why my printer is reporting “low ink" after using refilled/remanufactured ink cartridges?
Most ink cartridges have sensors that report the ink level. The “Low Ink” is usually the last sensor (fuse) before
running out of ink.

Since the sensors are fuses that open when the ink level drops, they cannot be reset. If you are using refill or
remanufactured ink cartridges, the best thing to do is to disable “ink alerts” on the printer’s software so you don’t keep
getting “low ink” messages.

To disable “Ink Alerts” on Dell inkjet printers:
1. Open the Dell printer software (All-In One Center, Tool Box, etc)
2. Go to Settings
3. Advanced
4. More Options
5. In the “Appearance Mode, window, check “Never display the Printing Status window” and “Display the low
ink alert only when the cartridges are almost empty.
Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Color problem


Chances are your othe cartridges were low...

When you install a new cartridge your printer does a head cleaning, and it uses alot of ink...

If the others were low, your printouts will show magenta as its the only color left...
