This is independent of every printing ink type and there usually is good instructions with the refills you get for the ink cartridge.
Have you purchased a refill cartridge?
Assuming not - there are 2 options; one is to buy a replacement ink tank same as the one which has run out, the other is to buy refill inks which you "inject" into your existing cartridge.
Personally, I use refill inks, as the running cost is about 1/5th of buying new and I have a copious supply of print cartridges. Some people really don't like using refills, because it's easy to get stuck with a refill kit and the ink cartridge dies or heads become clogged, forcing you to buy a new cartridge anyway. Your gamble, ahh, I mean choice....
I doubt it's computer/CPU related, but, just in case, you could try going to Start>Control Panels>Administrative tools. Double-click on 'Services', a window opens that show all the optional services for your Windows, some running, some not. Scroll down to "Print Spooler" and across from that you'll see "Started", 'Right-click' on this and change it to "Stop". This stops any printing instances that are stuck, jammed, frozen, just will not go away. Now 'Right-click on "Stopped" and change it back to "Start", close your open windows and try printing again.
If you go to Start>Control Panel>Printers and 'Right-click' on the printer in question, go down to "Properties" and when that opens click on "Print a test page" button. If you machine fails to print, a dialog box/window will open to help you troubleshoot it - must admit the questions asked are very basic and it has never helped me but may open some ideas for you.
Please let us know how it went.

After refilling my cartridge it shows ink level low for one cartridge and gives two error messages for every printing but prints. But for another cartridge it does not print and give message to buy a new...


Original Printer manufacturers do not recommend refilling in cartridges.
Different inks used in different cartridges differ in density, color, acidity etc. Usually refilling ink is made as universal ink. i.e. They produce the ink for 'any printer'.
The differences in the original and refiling inks might lead to the printer not recognizing the ink level.
Either buy a new cartridge or just ignore the messages.

Red not printing


if replacing M and/or LM cartridges doesn't fix the problem, there is not much you can do. You can try to get the printer serviced, but probably won't find anyone willing to do the job.

With new cartridge indicates low ink level,


The ink level gauge may not work properly with refilled cartridges. Because of this, you might get low ink message after refilling. To install the refilled cartridge you might need to override the ink level gauge. Overriding the ink level gauge disables the printer’s ink level tracking feature, but allows you to use refilled cartridges. To override the ink level gauge, please check your printer reference guide. After disabling the ink level tracking feature you should check the ink level visually and as soon as the ink level gets low you need to refill the cartridge. You do not want to try to print with an empty cartridge. Trying to print with an empty cartridge may damage your print-heads.

otherwise you will have to replace the cartridge .

After replacing ink cartridge printer dose not reconize one of six


Using refilled in cartridges and incompatible inks result in the following problems.
  • Refilled ink cartridges might leak and cause product damage. One method for refilling ink cartridges is to drill a hole through the cartridge, refill the ink, and then plug it. In some cases this plug does not hold, and the ink runs into the product and damages the printed circuit boards.
  • Refilled ink cartridges frequently exhibit spotty printing or fail to print. This problem might be a direct result of the nozzles being plugged with dried ink. Because the vents of the refilled cartridges have been opened, air is able to enter the cartridge and dry the ink.
  • Refilled ink cartridges might exhibit lower print quality, for the following reasons.
    • Printing algorithms used to create the various colors are based on particular printer inks. Using incompatible inks might result in color matching problems.
    • Refilled cartridges might have damaged nozzle orifices, result in various problems with print quality.
    • company products to which the printer belongs to can use a time delay between pages to accommodate the properties of the specific media type and ink being used. This prevents smearing problems from one page to the next. Using incompatible ink will alter the effects of this time delay and might result in poor print quality.
  • printer might not recognize refilled ink cartridges. The refilling process may involve altering the ink cartridge enough that the product is unable to recognize it. The condition of the print cartridge electrical contacts deteriorates with use. This also results in the product being unable to recognize the refilled cartridge.
  • Refilled ink cartridges might get stuck in the product. Because the cartridges from other manufacturers have been altered, cartridges might become stuck in the product. This problem might require that the product be disassembled to remove the cartridge.
  • printer at times cannot predict the long-term effects on product reliability from using different ink formulations.
