Did you purchase new cartridges from the vendor of the printer (e.g. Lexmark, Canon, Epson or HP) or are you using refilled or third party cartridges?

If you are not using factory new cartridges, Please replace them with factory new ones and let me know if that corrects the problem.

If you are using factory new cartridges, contact the vendor and tell them you need defective cartridges replaced.

Canon MP620 , full ink cartridge reads as " ink has run out" U041

The Canon printer may only use genuine ink cartridges which contain a chip so that you cannot fill the cartridge with ink or use non genuine ink cartridges.

Epsom Stylus CX5700F - paper goes through printer, sounds like it is printing, then when paper comes out, it has not printed anything, help please

try the following solution : perform a head cleaning process with the driver on your pc. and the option available through printer for head cleaning. do it for some cycles. like 2x in both ends. re seat the ink cartridges. close it. power cycle.(power on / off) then try to print. if it still persist. try to remove first the ink cartridges. get a wd40, THEN LOOK for the pins that plug the inkcartridges to the printer. spray it with wd40. let it dry for 3 to 4 hours then try it again. this helped me with my printer on clogged nozzles. hope this helps

I bought new cartridges that after a short time are showing as being empty. They are still full of ink and I don't want to buy new ones until these cartridges are genuinely empty.

try reseting the pritner by unpluging it at the back and pluging it back in again and by unpluging it to ur computer usb cable that goes to the printer and look at ur user manual and if you dont have ur manual any more go on the epson websight and type in the brand and model of your pritner

My Lexmark X5410 Printer will not recognize a refill cartridge.

Hi there

This is the same old story with Lexmark printers, you cant do any thing about it the chips have a small fuse inside them and soon as they emty it blows the fuse, and thats it so I beleave the only way is to buy new ink, or a diferent printer.
Not know any fix for them myself sorry.

Can try.
Turn printer off. Unplug power cord and other cables. Wait 30 seconds. Plug cords and cables back in.

Also seen this on the net.
Use clear tape over left hand row of sensors on front of cartridge and re-insert. ink now shows with question mark but reads as full and prints fine.

but yeah, best bet, never ever buy lexmark.....:)

If that doesn't work, try disabling your ink monitoring software.

My printer says

It sounds like you have a faulty cartridge. The printer is not able to sense the cartridge chip for ink status. To check this, you need to try another cartridge, preferably a new OEM cartridge.
A second reason may be that you are using aftermarket or refilled cartridges and the non-OEM ink may have gummed up the carrier and nozzles. Usually this can be cleared by inserting new OEM cartridges, running deep cleaning an number of times (3x) and alignment.
One of the above solutions should solve the problem.
Please rate this solution. Thanks.

My Dell AIO printer keeps blinking right ink cartridge incorrect.Exclamation light keeps blinking too.

Try going to the Dell site and searching for that printer model. Then see if you need to have both ink cartridges populated and filled with ink, to make it work.

You might also clean the contacts on the ink cartridges, to make sure the printer knows you have both cartridges in the printer, even though they're not both filled with ink.

It just might require both to be filled, before it will print for you.

See what Dell says.

Good luck.

Ink reading emty when replaced

If the cartridges are refills they won't show ink levels but you should still be able to print. Then just print until appears to run out of ink,

I need help with getting my printer to read that I refilled the Cartridge!

There are many different tries I have read about & even suggested to people & tried my self. Most fail & I end up feeling bad. The truth about most printers one way or another they keep track of the cartridges. (They remember). Some have small chip & others keep track through software. If your going to re-fill your cartridges I suggest you keep three cartridges handy for each color. Mark them 1 2 3. As one emties use the next & so on. Never allow the ink to dry up in a cartridge & always store them standing up. If you lay them on their side the ink may dry at the nozzles. (Not Good). If you receive an error that a refilled cartridge needs replaced. Ignore it & see it still prints. It just may. Bottom line. Printers are cheep & theres a reason. I'll bet you already know why. You know it! Cause the ink cost more. Two replacements & you could have bought a new printer, maybe three. So Hansonkirk, for now buy your lexmark ink new & when it emties drop a refilled in. Keep your refilled cartridges in a cool dark place waiting it's turn.
