Is the new cartridge a remanufactured one? If so, then it may be that they didn't replace the internal chip which keeps track of how much ink is in the cart. As long as the printer prints well, you won't have any issues except that the printer will say it's empty when it's not really. If your new cartridge is from the manufacturer, then return it to the store and get a new one. Otherwise just live with the message and watch for when the print quality deteriorates and replace it then.

Regarding your recent inquiry about the HP 96 or HP 96 ink cartridge poor print quality problems with your HP printer (i.e. severe print fade, streaking, degraded or missing colors), we suggest you perform the following corrective steps to help resolve the issue:

Cartridge & Printer maintenance should be evaluated - ensure both ink cartridges and flex cable contact surfaces (where the cartridge interfaces to the carriage inside the printer) are thoroughly clean: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1519

1) Gently blot the cartridge Nozzle Plate with a damp lint-free towel/wipe - a small amount of ink should be dispensed, and be visible, on the towel (all 3 colors should be present for a Tri-color cartridge).

2) If no ink is dispersed from nozzle plate (i.e. visible on towel) or ink cartridge completely fails to print on paper after installed in printer, then more drastic cartridge and printer cleaning steps will likely need to be performed to recover ink cartridge (NOTE: foam inside cartridge can dry out and become very hard - the foam must be moist with ink to function correctly (i.e. ink flows and wets the nozzle plate). Refer to 'clogged ink cartridge recovery' video here: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=2818

Providing the ink cartridges are clean, the problem may be caused by a dirty wiper blade or poor seal in the service station (capping station where the ink cartridges park when not in use) and this is causing the poor jetting / print performance issue you are observing. Remove the ink cartridges and thoroughly clean the wipers and seals: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1519

If the issue continues then please refer to 'Troubleshooting' section on our website - the printer manufacturer websites are also provided here: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=106

Run a quick printer 'self test' (see link below for instructions) or print one of the Inkjet411 test prints to evaluate cartridge performance (i.e. 4-color test print): http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=146

Advanced HP Printer Diagnostics (i.e. printer self tests, etc.): http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1813

You can also check our 'Print Quality' page of the 'General Information' section of the Inkjet 411 website and follow additional suggestions provided, particularly if the cartridge is not causing the poor image quality problem (i.e. printer driver settings issue): http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1432

If the poor print quality problem persists please return the cartridge to Costco and request the operator to 'stamp test' the ink cartridge.

---------
NOTE: If your printer works routinely after inserting a brand new HP integrated ink cartridge in it, this will confirm that the ink cartridge's internal foam was too dry to recover or the internal micro-electronics were electrically damaged.

How do i know if ink cartride running low?


If you had your ink cartridge refilled and the smart chip (attached to base or rear-side of cartridge) is not replaced, then ink level monitoring will not be available (i.e. you will observe "Ink Low" or "Empty" alert messages - this is completely normal for refilled cartridges. Our Inkjet411 technical support website ( http://inkjet411.com/ ) provides multiple videos, for each cartridge family, which walks you thru what to expect when using refilled ink cartridges; the Inkjet411 site is primarily a self-service sitelet which provides over 80 technical videos and do-it-yourself printer remedies and corrections: http://inkjet411.com/

Alternatively, if you need to purchase a new ink cartridge(s) and are trying to cut costs, we suggest you try a remanufactured ink cartridge from http://www.inkplicity.com/ as their ink cartridges typically have the lowest cost in the USA, have a high reliability rating, come with a 1-year warranty and provide free shipping for all orders above $20.

How do i install hp 27 ink cartridges


We suggest you ensure the printer is compatible with HP 27 and HP 28 ink cartridges...just perform a quick HP <printer model number> ink" search via google, to confirm.

If you are referring to a visible alignment issue as observed in a test print, then we suggest you verify the ink cartridges are clean, the problem may be caused by a dirty wiper blade or poor seal in the service station (capping station where the ink cartridges park when not in use) and this is causing the poor jetting / print performance issue you are observing.

How to reset inkje even with new refilled cartridge


Regarding your recent inquiry about the Canon 240 (black) or 241 (color) ink cartridge ink alert/error condition and the inability to print to your Canon MX452 printer, to reset the cartridge ink low/empty alert message condition, depending on your printer model, we suggest you follow the documented procedures below and/or provided on Inkjet411 at the following link. http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1765

Essentially, in most cases, all you need to do is press the 'Stop/Reset' button (triangle symbol inside of a circle) for 5-8 seconds and the ink error ("ink has run out", etc.) indicators should extinguish; two common reset procedures are provided below (please refer to both videos): http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1765

Canon 30/31/40/41 - Refilled Cartridge Activation Instructions: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=2709
Canon 50/51 - Refilled Cartridge Activation Instructions: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=2719
Canon 210/210XL/211/211XL - Refilled Cartridge Activation Instructions: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=2728
Canon 240/240XL/240XXL/241/241XL - Refilled Cartridge Activation Instructions: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=2733
Canon 245/245XL/246/246XL - Refilled Cartridge Activation Instructions: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=2740

If you have already attempted the 5-8 second printer reset without success, then refer to WORST CASE SCENARIO section below.


ADDITIONAL NOTES:

NOTE 1: Providing you can still print, you will need to wait until the "ink has run out" message appears on your computer, before activating the 'Stop/Resume' button for 5-8 seconds. However, if printing is not permissible, then please keep reading....

NOTE 2: If you are able to print the internal self test print, this will demonstrate that the ink cartridge is 'at least' partially functioning. If this is the case, then we suggest you continue printing until the software prompts you to press the 'Stop/Reset' button for >5 seconds. For poor print quality performance issues (as you indicated in your inquiry), we suggest you run a nozzle/cartridge clean test from your Canon software, followed by printing our 'Ink Recovery Test' print: http://inkjet411.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/Test-Print_CMYK.pdf

NOTE: To rule out connectivity issues, please ensure BOTH carriage/flex cables (point where the cartridge connects to carriage inside the printer) and BOTH ink cartridge rear electrical contact surfaces are thoroughly clean before proceeding: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1519

      ---
      WORST CASE SCENARIO - INTERNAL ELECTRICAL FAILURE OF INK CARTRIDGE:

      If, after performing the suggested 'reset' procedures above, you still have an error condition which prohibits computer/host based printing (or permit copy/scan functions), then the ink cartridge probably has internal electrical damage (micro-electronics failure); such a failure is unrelated to the ink cartridge refilling process. Typically, when the cartridge fails the problem is 'masked' by the ink out/empty condition so it can be difficult to distinguish between the two. Many cartridges eventually do encounter problems or failures, especially after their original ink is gone and they are re-used, and this is often unrelated to the refill process (i.e. typically ~2 years from original manufacturing date). Refer to picture at bottom of this page: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1533

      If, following a reset of the printer via the 'Stop/Resume' button, printing is permitted but the 'Ink Low' indicator continues to be lit then one of the inks cartridges may be suffering from marginal internal electrical performance - a potential failure of the cartridge may eventually occur which will prevent printing.


      ---
      CAUTION: Be advised, the use of Canon compatible/clone cartridges (i.e. sold thru the internet from overseas) are known to be problematic and may cause printer errors and/or permanent PRINTHEAD failures (due to incompatible ink formulations which may contain volatile organic compounds, or VOCs). We do NOT suggest refilling these types of ink cartridges.....refilling of Canon original/genuine ink cartridges is only suggested!

Reset ink cartridge


Unfortunately you can't....

The ink level indicator cannot be manually re-set in the newer HP, Lexmark or Dell integrated ink cartridges, thus making it not usable. The OEMs all leverage 'fusible links' in the nozzle plate (internal to base of ink cartridge) which physically blows the resistors as the original ink is consumed...thus resetting the ink cartridge's ink level monitoring capability is simply not possible. The ink tracking feature is only available with a brand new ink cartridge.

However, losing this feature is not necessarily significant, because the ink level indicator usually has 20%-30% ink remaining when it shows "low on ink". Therefore, the warning has limited value, because customers who prematurely replace their cartridges when they see the "low ink" message are wasting a lot of residual ink.

Refer to any of the following videos which cover this 'low ink' subject in detail:
http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=396 (HP 60/61 Low Ink)
http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=517 (HP 74/75 Low Ink)
http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=598 (HP 901 Low Ink)
http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1261 (HP 92-99 Nuisance Messages)

HP Deskjet 5150 poor print quality


For poor printing problems I suggest you run the Tap 10 diagnostic print test (see link to video below).
If the new (or refilled/reman/compatible) HP 56, 57 or 58 ink cartridge refuses to print black/color and/or function at all (i.e. blinking ink light on Deskjet 5000 series printer) or fails to complete the printer alignment following cartridge installation, then the ink cartridge either has a connectivity issue with the flexible printed circuit cable (inside unit where cartridge mates with cable), the rear cartridge contacts or cable contacts are dirty with ink residue, or the cartridge is suffering from marginal internal electrical performance. It is suggested you perform the TAP 43 (and TAP 10) DIAGNOSTIC PRINTER TEST to evaluate the ink cartridges electrical performance. Visit Inkjet411 support site to see instructional video: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=2358
NOTE: For the HP Deskjet 5000 series printer models, when you get an HP 56, 57 or 58 integrated ink cartridge refilled (i.e. currently offered at Costco or Frys today) or if you buy a remanufactured/compatible HP ink cartridge, the ink levels are not initially reset. However, continuing to use an ink cartridge which displays LOW INK alerts is permitted by the printer, simply select OK, CONTINUE or DISMISS when these alerts are observed. Now, it is possible to reset the ink levels by performing the procedure outlined on Inkjet411's site: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1915
To clean the HP 56, 57 or 58 ink cartridges please visit the Inkjet411 site which provides recommendations on how to clean the electrical contacts, flex driver cables and how to perform a hot water flush of the nozzle plate (refer to video): http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1519
