Try checking under maintenance or ink settings, sometimes if the cartridges have been refilled they are not reset correctly and the ink level checking fails to work. There is sometimes and option to ignore these for refilled or compatible cartridges.

Control Panel
--> Printers and Faxes
--> Right Click on the Printer ICON and select Properties
--> Look for a "Maintenance" or "Tools" Tab across the top click one
--> Look for an option for "In" or "Ink Settings"
and click on one of these options to run

If you cannot find that then Try going into Control Panel
--> Printers and Faxes
--> Right Clicking on your printer
--> Look for a "Maintenance" or "Tools" Tab across the top click one
--> Look for an option for "Cleaning" or "Deep Cleaning"

Hi Vinay kumar kuchipudi , I tried using refillable cartridges and my CYAN is always flashing . rest of the cartridges is reconised. Can you please advice me what to change. I tried the second new ref


Sorry for the delay.,
As you know each cartridge having memory chip, the chip keeps the estimated level of ink inside as per the out put print volume . But there is no contact or any internal circuit to link up with the chip.. Once its empty, even refilling the ink inside chip wont recognizes the ink level, results printer detects that cartridge running out of ink & printer warning appears on panel. You need to replace the chip while refilling the ink. Now a days universal re-settable chips are available in the market, get the set of chips replace with existing chips..

What could have happen was that you refilled it when it was emptied dry, usually this spoils the cartridge. I would recommend you buy a new one and when its about 80% empty that's the time to refill, not after.

The cartridge


Is this a Canon ink cartridge or a refilled ink cartridge or an after market type. If it is not a Canon ink cartridge then printer will reject the ink cartridge.

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

How to you refill the cartridges on epson stylus cx5000 printer


If you want to use recyled ink you will have problems with any modern ink jet, they build devices to stop such or at least to make it expensive or damaging to your printer, some of the older epson are great but forget modern ones they are fitted with reset chips not just need ink.....so really one cant refill these without it working out easier to just buy the damn expensive makers ones, the game is rigged I tell you, printers these days are made worse than 10 year ago, give me the old stuff any day..today we throw em!

Refill ink for Lexmark X4850


I have a couple questions for you.
1. Is your cartidge 42 or 42A? The 42 cartridge will not work if you refill it. I learned that the hard way after paying to have it refilled and I got it home and it would not print. If you are using the 42A refillable cartridge, your ink levels will not reset. I called lexmark to ask them after not bieng able to find any answers online. He said that because I am using the 42A, it will print but will not register the level. The only downside is I have to keep an eye out for fading so that I do not ruin the printer heads.

I hoped this helped.

My printer keeps sayin check ink and they have just been put in brand new


some of the cartridges have a chip inside them and can only be reset by the manufacturer, if it is a refill job then you will find the quality is never quite the same, if you have the software for the printer on your pc , load it up and make sure you tell the system , on screen prompts etc in the printer maintenance guide that the cartridges have been replaced, there is of course the other event that if the cartridges have been refilled then look out for great dollops of ink in the head cleaning tray below the stop point of the cartidges.
Also it might not be legitamate ink for your brand of printer

Problem with new ink cartridge


More that likely the refilled ink cartridges are faulty and should be replaced. While some folks have pretty good luck with refilled cartridges, it is generally better to stick with the new ones.

As to the problem with old cartridges, keep in mind that the estimated ink levels are just that - estimates. However, if your printer has an option for cleaning the cartridges, try that before chunking them. Take them out, put them back in, and run the cleaning process. Sometimes the nozzles can get clogged up and running the cleaning process will clear them up. ( DO NOT TRY TO CLEAN THE CARTRIDGES MANUALLY!)

If none of this helps, you will more than likely just need to get some new cartridges. - Graye

Refilling lexmark cartridges x2500


Hey....I solved the lexmark out of ink problem!!!HA!!! what you have to do if you want to refill these is "pop" off the top of the cartridge. It is not easy as it is glued down...using a small screwdriver preferably a small flat jewelers screw driver you can peel back the plastic that seperates the "lid" of the ink cartridge. you have to use a little force but you can get it off. Once you do this the cartridge will always read full!!!!!! just tape it or super glue it back on. You never have to take it off again! although I recomend cleaning the ink sponges inside every 3 refills. but this works great.....ha ha lexmark.....I got ya!!!!
