If they are not original Epson cartridges, the printer will keep reading them low.
If they are try taking them out and put them in again.

I have a canon pixma mx320. I purchased on line refillable ink cartridges. The problem is the printer will not let me copy, print or even fax. The screen keeps reading black ink volume level not readable....


Go into the Canon Printer Utilities. Click on Solution Menu folder. Click on Solution Menu icon.
A new window will open up. Click on "Change settings or find solutions to problems.
A new window will open up. This screen will give you 3 selections to choose from.
They are: Printer Settings, Printer Status and Troubleshooting. You will be able to reset your ink cartridge levels from these windows and try to print again.

Bland and color cartridges have been refilled but


Ink level counter (program) didn't read actually ink at ink tank. Brand new cartridge ink level counter 100% (full), and ink 100% (about 10 ml). After may printing, ink will dry out, and ink level counter reach zero (ink out). Printer will not allow print anymore, even have refilled, because ink level read "ink out". For canon type, you just to release ink level counter, and counter just stop, but printer will allow to print. Press stop/reset button for about 30 second.

We have a Dell 944 showing Error 1102 consult user guide...cannot find the user guide. We just replaced color ink cartridge with a re-processed one ordered online. Please advise...many thanks!.


Hi there
Dell Printer 944 error message 1102
Please unplug the printer from the wall. Now remove the power brick from the back of the printer for 60 seconds. Now plug everything back in. This will reset any error messages the printer has. Now open the printer with the power on and the cartridges should go to the center to be replaced. Take out both Dell Series 5 ink cartridges and make sure the tape is off the cartridges and insert both back in and make sure the seat properly and latch. Close the printer and it should print an alignment page. If you still get the error message

Why does my Dell ink cartridge level still show up as "low ink" after refilling them?
Dell ink cartridges have a sensor that reports the ink level as low once it reaches a certain level. The sensor can not
be reset. If you refill an ink cartridge that previously reported low ink, it may print fine, but the sensor will always
report low ink. Buying or replacing ink cartridges with new Dell cartridges will resolve the low ink message.

Dell discourages ink refills. Refilling ink may lead to print quality problems, and even eventual hardware problems.
This post is in no way a validation of refilling ink cartridges.

Why my printer is reporting “low ink" after using refilled/remanufactured ink cartridges?
Most ink cartridges have sensors that report the ink level. The “Low Ink” is usually the last sensor (fuse) before
running out of ink.

Since the sensors are fuses that open when the ink level drops, they cannot be reset. If you are using refill or
remanufactured ink cartridges, the best thing to do is to disable “ink alerts” on the printer’s software so you don’t keep
getting “low ink” messages.

To disable “Ink Alerts” on Dell inkjet printers:
1. Open the Dell printer software (All-In One Center, Tool Box, etc)
2. Go to Settings
3. Advanced
4. More Options
5. In the “Appearance Mode, window, check “Never display the Printing Status window” and “Display the low
ink alert only when the cartridges are almost empty.
Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Ink Refill


You have refilled the ink that is why it reports low ink.
The explanation for this, is that the ink cartridge estimates the ink level by using the number of pages you have printed. Once you have reached a pre-programmed number of pages, the ink cartridge reports that it is empty; but it is not necessarily empty.
If it prints then continue printing. However, it will always give a low ink warning. Remember to get it refilled once the pages start getting missing text (or graphics).
If you cannot print, then you will either have to purchase a new cartridge or ask the person at the refill shop to reset it, if it is possible.

Problem with new ink cartridge


More that likely the refilled ink cartridges are faulty and should be replaced. While some folks have pretty good luck with refilled cartridges, it is generally better to stick with the new ones.

As to the problem with old cartridges, keep in mind that the estimated ink levels are just that - estimates. However, if your printer has an option for cleaning the cartridges, try that before chunking them. Take them out, put them back in, and run the cleaning process. Sometimes the nozzles can get clogged up and running the cleaning process will clear them up. ( DO NOT TRY TO CLEAN THE CARTRIDGES MANUALLY!)

If none of this helps, you will more than likely just need to get some new cartridges. - Graye

Brother MFC-5440CN Ink Status


I have the same problem.I did go to Staples store and the person told me to clean the heads of the cartridges with alcohol and the bottom injector. I tried that and it did not work.It keeps telling me the ink is low even if I put in new ones. I am going to try the alcohol solution to see if it works. If not I will return to store for an exchange.I really like the printer.
