You either used not original manufacturer cartridges or you attempt to refill them with ink, the cartridges have a small chip telling the printer how many pages were printed and how much ink was used.
You will need either a device to reset the chips or replace them with original manufacturer ones.

SOURCE: How to fix "Ink Absorber Full"??

The ink absorber is a small piece of material that is used to hold the ink that is scraped from print heads on the ink tanks during cleaning.  I suggest, wearing gloves of course, removing the material, which resembles a sponge, and cleaning it with warm water.  Allow sufficient time to dry, clean the sensor with a cotton swab, and reinstall.  Remember to change the ink tanks at the same time, in order to reset the ink counter.  There are new absorbers available for purchase on the web, if you don't want to clean the old one.  Others have had similar problems, Canon suggests sending the equipment to them for repair.

SOURCE: ink settings

Have you made sure you removed the backing plastic from the cartridge sensor?
Try reinstalling the driver and do a nozzle and head alignment test. If you still have the same issue, try doing a hard reset - unplug the printer from power and PC, wait for about 10 minutes and replug everything and see. If the issue still occurs, there could be an issue with the cartridge sensor on your printer, which will require servicing.

SOURCE: My printer can't read the new ink level after refilling

The ink level indicator is only an estimate to give you an idea when it's time to buy a new cartridge. You cannot reset the ink level indicator so simply ignore it if you refill your cartridges. See pg 72 of the user manual which you can get here: http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01374711.pdf

SOURCE: How to Override Ink Level Gauge When Using Refilled Cartridges

Above link great.
If you have a newer print cartridge cart, look for the little window. I put a sticker over the little window on the Brother (innobella) LC38 cartridge cart and it worked great :)
Despite finding a fix for this problem, I think this is a rip off setting on the brother printers and I will never buy another Brother printer for this reason.

My TX550W ran out of Black Ink (T103) and I replaced it with a Genuine Epson Cartridge compatible with my printer (73N), My computer status monitor/ink check on the printer shows the black ink is now full...


Sometimes the ink does take a while to come from the cartridge to the print head. Performing 1 head cleaning procedure may fix this. But only do this once, anything after is just wasting ink. Also make sure no part of the air tab sticker has blocked the air hole in the cartridge. Have a look at the new one you have to find the hole. Its just under the sticker you take off before installing it into the printer.
I hope this helps Regards GM

Printer (HP5650) has full ink cartridges.window sez almost empty


That is normal, the printer "sees" the cartridges by their serial number, so when you pop in a refilled cartridge, the printer thinks you have put in old cartridges and continue to show low ink level. When you pop in a new one, with a new serial code, the ink level will reset, showing that the cartridges are full again.
You can try this:
1. Open printer lid so cartridges move to center of carriage.
2. Lift clamp and remove black or color cartridge from the holder.
3. Place cartridge on table with copper contact strip facing you.
4. Carefully place a strip of clear plastic tape over the four contacts on the upper left corner of the cartridge.
5. Reinstall cartridge in printer and close lid. Wait until cartridge returns to parking position.
6. Open lid and remove cartridge again. Remove tape from left side and place tape over four contacts at upper right corner of cartridge.
7. Reinstall cartridge in printer and close lid. Wait until cartridge returns to parking position again.
8. Open lid again, remove cartridge, remove tape.
9. Reinstall cartridge and close lid.
Printer will now recalibrate. Once the process is complete the ink level meter should be reading full again.
Doesn't always work, but you can try.
Here are links, so you can see:

Dear Sir,
Welcome to Fixya Customer Support
I feel happy to assist you on this moment

Generally In some Printer Driver Programming lack of certain issue. For Example When Printer ink low it shows Ink is running low or ink is low but after replacing catridge also this massage continues appearing.Practically Ink is full. this is mainly due to the printer driver and software programming fault.
so no need to worry ink is full keep printing.



Once again thanking u choosing fixya Customer Support

After 15 color copies voice comes on Color ink LOW, Senior Citizen


The ink cartridges shipped with a new printer are not filled to full capacity as are the ones that you purchase for replacement. Office supply stores "Staples" "Office Depot" etc can refill your cartridges for about half of the cost of a replacement cartridge, I do not reccomend refilling the same cartridge more than twice but even after the second fill you can then trade the cartridge in for a discount on a new one.
Hopefully this helps.
You can also open the printer settings and lower the print resolution for jobs that do not need full color/resolution.


Please rate FixYa Experts assistance, whether your rating is good or bad helps The experts immensely.
Thank you for taking the time.

ERROR OF LOW ON INK TRICARTRIDGE


Hello,

My name is Army Mason, and I am here to help. Yes this is somewhat common issue with all-in-one machines. Have you tried cleaning the metallic connectors where the cartridge goes? This is normally the issue, also are these brand new ink cartridges or did you get them refilled? Refilled cartridges can also cause issues. Try cleaning the terminals, that should resolve the issue.

Have a wonderful week,
ArmyMason
