This is normal.
Printer will warn the ink is getting low. almost empty very nearly empty....

then (in effect) it says if you want to use refilled cartridges you can but it may void printer warranty. Press yellow flashing button for 5 seconds to "release ink detection" (summat like that).

Printer will continue to print but shows the cartridge as empty. Its your responsibility to make sure you do not run out.

It does this separately for each colour - tedious for the pro9000 with 8 colours

SOURCE: my ink ran out, i had the cartridge refilled, but

Read on and see if any applies to you.
Check that you removed the protective tape. some cartridges have two of these pieces of tape one over the head and possibly on on the contacts to the printer.

If you recently re-filled or had the cartridge refilled or even bought one of the many cheaper replacement cartridges you should read on

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.

cheaper cartridge problems have been on the rise recently and that is for ALL makes of printer.
If you try to clean the contacts be VERY careful cleaning contacts and ONLY use isopropynol on a lint free bud or cloth.
Also be very gentle.

I have seen the contacts cleaned and cartridges ruined with other methods of cleaning.
Rubbing too hard can also cause a badly set chip to move making it inoprable.

I dont like full prices replacements either which is why I always provide the links
I usually reccomend that people take back any cartridge that does not work right from the get-go.

I dont know of anyone who has had a problem doing that be it a shop refill or otherwise.

No matter if I paid $1 or $100 for a cartrdige I would still expect it to work

your printer probably cannot recognize one of both cartridges 
clean the contacts of the cartridges and the contacts of the cartridge carrier  with a wet towel 
if that does nt work your ink cartridge has probably overheated  because air has left in the cartridge after refilling and must be replaced

How can I refill lexmark s405 cartridge and get printer to show full level?


Lexmark does not recommend the use of refilled/remanufactured cartridges. These tend to degrade print quality and printer/cartridge performance.
Note that when a cartridge is refilled, it can no longer register its ink level.

My lexmark 3150 printer will not print anything in color even though the refill color cartridge is completely full


Lexmark does not recommend the use of refilled/remanufactured cartridges. These tend to degrade print quality and cartridge performance.
You can try to clean the cartridge nozzles. But if that doesn't help, I would suggest that you replace it with new genuine Lexmark cartridges.

Please note that Lexmark does not recommend the use of refilled cartridges. Refilled cartridges tend to degrade in print quality and performance.
You may try to re-seat the cartridge and make sure it's properly seated in the cartridge carrier. Also note that once a cartridge is refilled, it can no longer register its ink level.

I refilled the ink cartridges on my canon mp250 printer. Now the ink lights will not quit flashing and I am unable to print anything. I tried resetting according to instructions provided by canon and it...


Hi,

How much time you have done refilling a same cartridge? You shouldn't refill a same cartridge more than three times. Make sure that the cartridges are OK. May be the head of the cartridges are not in good condition. You may need to replace cartridge. Check that you have installed the cartridges properly or reinstall it. Align the cartridges. If it doesn't solve your problem then you have to replace the cartridges. Using original cartridge always is recommended.

I have refilled the ink in my hp74 cartridge and it does not register as full on the printer. It also, does not print anything?? Barely ledgable when it does...very very light.


Your refilled hp 74 will not register as full after you do a refill.
You will have to remove some ink out of the ink cartridge.
There is a special clip that can be purchase to do this.
You could just leave the cartridge in overnight for the ink to reach the bottom.
The ink cartridge will then be able to print.

Printer does not accept refilled cartridge


Normal 0 This doesn’t help fix all printers because each situation is different and in most cases we don’t have enough information to determine the fix. So hope this will provide some help.

Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
