I believe you have to press a key combination when the unit powers up to get it to recognize there are new cartridges in place. Check your user's manual on the correct sequence.

Hi,

Turn the printer off, take out the cartridges, turn the printer on, reinstall cartridges. Printer reads cartridges as new.

Why this happens? I don't know if the rumors are true but check out this website and you'll find out.

Brother MF 5440CN USB Printer won't print. Says "Ink Empty Cyn" and then "Ink Empty Yellow" Replace Ink There is ink in the cartridges.


While there may be ink in the cartidges, your printer is getting a signal from the cartidge that it's near empty. There is no real workaround for this; you just have to replace the cartridge(s). If you use a LOT of ink, you might consider installing a CIS (continuous ink system) now made for most printers. You will save a lot of money over time.

What you describe is typical.

Ink cartridges


you replace them one for one. There is a piece of tape over the new cartridge nozzle that must be removed first though. It should say on the tape or compare new with old.

Dell 924 all in one printer cannot remove low ink warning


Hello,


This happens if you are not using the Dell ink Cartiridges. However there are few work arounds on this issue.

Firstly, Please try to remove cartridges and then clean cartridge slots and make sure that printer is OFF and completed disconnected from Computer. Remove the cable between Printer and Computer while you do this.

After that restart the computer and then try to reconnect every thing and check if this happens


if else, then open the printer properties or printing preferences and locate the option that says Calibrate the cartidges. and do the calibration of cartidges. Calibration is compulsory once if you replace the ink cartidges.

if still fails then reinstall printer software. This should resolve the issue.

Thank you.
