I have same problem but if you will close the low or out of ink popup and then click print it will start printing. When you run out of ink refill and keep doing the same thing. Much easier that trying tocalibrate cartridge.

Just unplug the printer from the back and plug it back in. Problem solved. I did this on my mother's printer and it worked like a charm for this same error msg and issue.

please note that I am not an expert, in this field just an attorney and that is why I am putting my full disclaimer right here at the top---That i am not an expert but only speaking from experience.
Earlier this morning, I just pulled the cartridges to check the Lexmark print (X6570) cartridge numbers (41&42). When I typed these numbers in on inksell.com to retrieve the price and other information for these cartridges, they did not have any refill kits or anything of that nature for these specific cartridges.
To answer your question about why the printer is not detecting that your cartridge is full is probably because the cartridge has a chip in it that essentially disables it once the original manufacturer ink is empty. tHEY [Lexmark & Dell] do not want outside competition In other words, the printer manufacturers make the bulk of the money on selling new cartridges (for a fortune) . To make matters worse, they always seem to be half empty even though they are ‘brand-new’ ink cartridges The bottom line is that the faster you can go through a printer cartridge, they can sell many more of the cartridges that they are charging us a fortune for.
Needless to say, I am just going to go and get me another HP printer. My advice would be to check to see if ink-refill kits (see sites like inksell.com) are available for any future printers that u purchase.

There are a couple ways to trick it into accepting the cartridge. You can put a different one in, take it out and then put the filled one in. Or you can find a refill kit with instructions on what contacts to cover with tape and you have to do it 2 or 3 times to get the printer to reset. Sometimes you can shut off the computer and printer for 20 min and start it up again. Or you can get the sledge hammer and smash the stupid printer before it sucks up your life savings and vow never to buy from a company that profits from causing problems that they tell you can only be solved by using more of their overpriced solutions.

If you let the cartridge run totally dry then they need to be reset or replaced, I have tried purchasing reset software myself and found then to be a waist of money as they do not reset the cartridge at all. Do yourself a favor and replace the cartridge and remember to top up the cartridges before they get half empty.
