Question about Lexmark X2500 All-In-One Printer

Empty ink cartridges

I have aLexmark 250 printer, which I am very pleased with, but I purchased two ink cartridges which have had no ink in them. One I got my money back and the other which I purchased at Zeller's was not refundable. These are expensive items and there should be some quality control to assure the customer that they are getting an ink filled cartridge or some kind of test at the place of purchase.

New ink cartridge in printer saying empty

Assuming you have a refilled or remanufactured cartridge there this is actually pretty normal. These cartridges have no means of checking for new ink in the cartridge so will continue to warn of empty. They will not however stop you from printing as a result.

If however you purchased the cartridge as a brand new cartridge, you may have been miss-sold the cartridge. In which case I would advise speaking to whoever it was purchased from.

Reset ink level on canon mg2120 after ink refill

The following procedures may be used to reset the Canon printer ink level monitoring following the installation of a refilled Canon 30, 31, 40, 41, 50, 51, 210, 211, 240, or 241 integrated ink cartridges. In most cases, the error/alert will need to be cleared to enable printing. Ink waste container reset procedures are also provided below.
NOTE: for multi-cartridge installation, the procedure(s) may need to be repeated twice.

For PGI-5, PGI-9PBK, CLI-8, PGI-220 CLI-221 PGI-225 CLI-226 PGI-250 CLI-251 Cartridges: These are new Canon cartridges which have an embedded chip on each cartridge. If you just refill the ink, the printer will still reads the cartridge as empty. You have two choices:

Purchase a "refillable cartridge" from
BCH or other sellers. These refillable cartridges have an auto-reset chip (non OEM) and will reset automatically.
Use a chip resetter (e.g., search Canon + model number + resetter on eBay). Follow the instruction below to refill your original cartridge, and use the resetter to reset the chip.

It wont allow me to scan items because one of the ink cartridges is empty.Why do i need ink to scan something . please help?

Inkjet printers basically shutdown when one or the other cartridges are empty. This is an inherent problem with inkjets, but none the less a problem.Try setting the printer to black and white printing only to attempt to bypass this problem. Depending on your make and model, this may help. Otherwise you may need to purchase the cartridge in order to get it to work. Sorry.

Hi, I am using Canon 1454MP 3 - in - one printer, can you tell me if refilling my cartridges will work fine (which costs Rs 100 - 250) , r I have to buy a new cartridge everytime? Please help

All canon cartridges can be refilled but you need to know the following:
  1. Use Dye Based inks, not water based
  2. Do not refill the cartridge if it is completely empty, it may not work
  3. Keep in mind the ink levels can not be reset after a refill, so you will have to put up with a empty cartridge warning.
It is much more cost effective to refill than to purchase a new cartridge. We have successfully refilled these types of cartridges over 10 times each.
These links below will also provide useful information regarding refilling.

I hope this helps, If so please rate this answer below Thank You for supporting the FixYa Community Regards GM

Wanted to remove the empty ink and put a new one on my printer as it is empty.

When a printer cartridge runs out of ink the printer has a reference number printed on the old cartridge,(usually found when the printer top is lifted). After purchasing a replacement for the empty cartridge, you will find directions about how to install it into your brand of printer. Be careful to match the cartridge numbers and to avoid touching the contact areas on the new cartridge. You will probably need to run a printer cartridge alignment program after installing the new cartridge.

Please comment if this is the best solution for you, Thank you!

Hi, can i run my epson stylus photo Rx560, just with the black ink cargo.. or i have to buy, and put all of them, that the printer start to work, couse with the just 1 cargo, it says 'ink cartridges...

You must have all ink cartridges in printer to print. The printer senses when a slot is empty and will not print. You will have to purchase all cartridges and install them for the printer to work.

How do i refill Lexmark prospect se pro208 Ink Cartridges

I have a Lexmark Prospect SE Pro208 and let cartridges run empty. I then purchased refill ink made the proper hole and needled
ink into the cartridges. Only thing is that the printer does not measure how much ink is in the cartridge it guesses by quality, amount of ink used on each sheet. It uses the chip on the cartridge as a install date and serial #. when I tried to print it said
the cartridges were empty still. BUT!!! if I took a memory stick and stuck it in the printer port I could print the picture from the
mini screen. that would mean that the program installed on the computer was "edited" would that work to fix $100 of ink to be purchased??? just a thought.

My refilled ink cartridge still displays empty and will not print

The ink cartridge is most likely chipped & you would not be able to reset the ink level. Purchase an original or a good compatible cartridge. Refiling newer cartridges is not a good idea.

New Ink cartridges registering as empty ...

Is it an HP printer? We had the same problem at work with print cartridges purchased at Staples. They have a major quality control problem. Your new print cartridge may be empty or dried out (died on the shelf). It's my problem at work, as I have over 80 HP deskjets, and Purchasing still insists on buying the Staples cartridges rather than the HP.

Sometimes if you shake a print cartridge really hard it may correct the problem. However, I would buy or borrow a black HP print cartridge and try it out in your printer. Works almost every time on the job. Good luck.
