Refilling cartridges on _quality_ printers is not a wise solution. The makers of printers like Hewlett Packard spend thousands of dollars to formulate an ink to match the print head and printer. Then you buy a cheapo version of non-descript ink and refill their cartridge to save money and complain about the result. Buy a new HP cartridge, clean the nozzles, print a test sheet and post the results please.

Lexmark 300S is not printing black and all my ink is full. Whats the prob


Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head. This model Canon/Epson printer may only let you use genuine Canon/Epson printer cartridges. If you try to refill these ink cartridges it will not work because the Canon/Epson cartridges have an embedded chip in the cartridge that detects the empty cartridge even though it has been refilled.

Printer cartridge alignment checks


Is this with new cartridges or refilled?

If refilled, the nozzles may have become blocked which isn't the easiest thing to clear. If new cartridges, take them back for a replacement at the store and try again with new ones

I refilled the cartridge, it worked for a week. Then it abruptly began to print very poorly. Faint, with horizontal lines. I filled the cartridge again. No change. I cleaned the head and now it prints...


The problem that you have is that the ink that you use
in old/bad quility or you have air bubbles in the sponge
of the cartridge and that block the ink
in order to have a success refilling check the video
this is a simple method
with no special tools and machines

I had my cartriges refilled and now its not printing correctly. actually printing in all yellow. I've tried cleaning the heads and turning off printer to rest. I've tried to align and clean printer heads....


Unfortunately in my opinion your cartridge has been compromised. Hopefully you did not pay for this service. You should replace that cartridge immediately. When it comes to cartridge "refilling" if you are not going to "do it yourself" don't even let someone else do the deed even for "FREE"

Refilled my lexmark cartridges but still dont work


14 and 15 won't work after refill. You can only refill 14A and 15A.
But even when you refill those, the printer will keep telling you they are empty, which is normal, neither the printer nor the computer can know that you have refilled your cartridges. The devices see cartridges by their serial number, so it resets the counter only when you pop in a new cartridge. They are ways to bypass that by resetting the ink level: use clear tape over the left hand row of sensors on the front of the cartridge and re-insert it. The ink now shows with question mark but reads as full and prints fine. You actually "fool" the printer into thinking you have put a different cartridge. This works with some printers, so I am not 100% sure it will work with yours.

Printer cartridges not recognised


Sometimes even when an ink cartridge has been refilled to capacity, your printer still registers it as empty. This is because your printer remembers that the cartridge was previously installed and it can only remember it as being empty. Part of this is due to technology put in place by printer manufacturers so that you will always have to buy new cartridges. Part of it is also that print catridges are clogged if not used for sometime after its empty even after refilling this is because the contact was already clogged due to the dryness of the old ink inside it before refilling so in that case you will clean/soak the contacts with solvent before refilling .
again since there is no “official” way to fix this problem, you have to basically clear the printer’s memory to make it recognize that you are installing a full cartridge. If you have tried to install the refilled cartridge and you have done all you can to convince your printer that the cartridge isn’t still empty, then basically you just have to unplug your printer for a minute and then trying reinstalling again. but it should fix this problem and it can potentially fix other annoying things your printer is doing.

Lined printing in black ink


We get that problem w/ refilled cartridges. There is probably a very big clog in the nozzles. If you're using virgin OEM cartridges then you should complain about it. But if its refilled cartridges you will have to do a lot of work on it to clear up the nozzles. I don't suggest you do it manually as it will take a day or so just for one cartridge. Hope this helps.
