Question about Canon PIXMA iP1600 Printer

1 Answer

Continue printing greyed out

My last lexmark printer allowed me to CONTINUE printing even after low ink warnings. I managed to print several good copies even after this warning, and i could ultimately decide when i thought the quality of printing was bad enough to change the cartridge. My new lexmark printer's Continue button is greyed out after the first warning. My question is:
Is there a string I can change in the printers software that will activate the continue button after this warning. Ink is not cheap and i hate wasting.
thanks.

How to override lexmark s415 low ink


There's no way to override the low ink warning. If one of the cartridges is out of ink, you won't be able to continue printing.

Refilled cartridges will not report or reset the ink levels.

Missing Yellow cartridge in printer can I still print?


If you are using one of Lexmark printers that has the new ink system based upon individual tanks (like the following models: S300, S400, S500, S600, Pro200, Pro700, Pro800 & Pro900 Series), these models require all cartridges to have ink them to continue printing.
However, there are some previous Lexmark models that are able to continue printing even if one cartridge is empty.
Should you still need assistance, please leave a comment to my response and I'll get back to you. Should this answer your concern, your rating will be greatly appreciated.

The Lexmark Impact S305 printer requires all the cartridges to have ink in them to continue printing - even if you're printing using black ink only. To print true black, you actually use some of the color ink.
Note: Leaving the color cartridge empty or dry isn't good for the printer. It can lead to poor print quality if you want to print color in the future.

When i gave print from doucment machine takes paper and give it as it as blank, solve my problem,


Solution one: Check the ink levels To allow for full use of the cartridges, some printers continue to print even after the cartridges are completely out of ink. Follow these steps to check the ink levels in the Toolbox . The Toolbox is part of the standard printer software. Depending on the version of Toolbox on your computer, the appearance of the Toolbox features might vary. NOTE: Ink level warnings and indicators provide estimates for planning purposes only. When an indicator shows low ink levels, consider having a replacement cartridge available to avoid possible printing delays. Print quality deteriorates as cartridges run out of ink.
  1. Click Start .
  2. Click Printers and Faxes .
  3. Right-click the icon for your printer (c01532298.gif ), and then click Printing Preferences .
  4. Click the Features tab.
  5. Click the Printer Services button. The Toolbox window opens.
  6. Click the Estimated Ink Levels tab. A window opens that indicates the estimated ink level of each cartridge. NOTE: Depending on the printer, the estimated ink level indicators can vary in appearance. Examples of estimated ink level indicators c01867289.gif c01867290.gif
  7. If the ink level indicators show that a cartridge is low or empty, replace the cartridge.
  8. Try printing again.
  • If these steps resolved the issue , you do not need to continue troubleshooting.
  • If the issue persists , continue to the next solution.
Solution two: Restart the printer Restarting the printer might clear the issues and allow the printer to function correctly again.
  1. Press the Power button (c01602202.gif ) to turn off the printer. NOTE: Pressing the Power button might not turn off the printer. This might happen if the printer is in an error state. Continue with these steps regardless.
  2. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the printer. Figure 1: Disconnect the power cordc01869581.gif
  3. Disconnect the USB cable from the back of the printer. Figure 2: Disconnect the USB cablec01850063.gif
  4. Wait 30 seconds.
  5. Reconnect the USB cable to the printer. Figure 3: Reconnect the USB cablec01868577.gif
  6. Reconnect the power cord to the printer. Figure 4: Reconnect the power cordc01869582.gif
  7. Press the Power button (c01602202.gif ) to turn on the printer.
  8. Try printing again.
  • If these steps resolved the issue , you do not need to continue troubleshooting.
  • If the issue persists

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
