The color cartridges print text that appears black by mixing the three primary colors (cyan, magenta, and yellow) to make composite black. To achieve a realistic black, large quantities of colored ink are used. Because black cartridges use much less ink to create a similar shade of black, they print more pages in black than the color cartridge.
If the color cartridges on the printer are next to empty, you will not be able to get perfect prints at all.

Please have the cartridges replaced to do the printing jobs again.

I got my ink cartridge refilled but it's still saying its empty, how do i get it to print anyway?


So as MUKHTAR states, do not refill cartiges when they are TOO EMPTY as most of the new printers have a sensor in the cartige that tells when it is empty. and when that sensor fills that the cartige is empty, it stays that way, no matter how much you refill it.

on the laser printers, when you refill your toner cartige there also is a chip that is changed (the sensor) because once that sensor feels that the cartige is empty you will not be able to use that cartige anymore.

Dell color cartridges


this sounds wierd to tell you

take out the cartige and if you can take out the cartige holders ( try to reach for the place where the ink flows out) spray it with a glass cleaning solution and let it pass inside where the ink pases and believe it or not it will clean properly the ink passages. try to clean the bottom of the cartige too.

some 1 trid it infront of me and it worked.

ps: an unproper positioning of the cartige will cause the printer not to work.
