Did you remove the seals from the cartridges before putting them into the printer?

Print a diagnostic page If the steps above have not helped, print and evaluate a diagnostic page to see if the cartridges or the printer is causing the problem.
  1. Make sure the printer is on and loaded with unused, plain, white paper.
  2. Press and hold the Power button and then press the Cancel button. Release both buttons. The diagnostic page prints. Figure 1: Power and Cancel buttonsc00584735.gif 1 - Cancel button 2 - Power button
Step 4: Note which cartridges printed which areas of the diagnostic page You must identify which cartridge printed which part of the diagnostic page, so that if you find defects on the page, you will know which cartridge is the problem. However, you can install different combinations of print cartridges in your printer, and different cartridge combinations print different diagnostic page patterns. Your diagnostic page may not look exactly like the picture below, but the right and left cartridges will print in the same areas of the page no matter which cartridges are installed. Figure 2: Diagnostic page layout (the patterns in each area may look slightly different on your page)c00584715.gif 1 - Printed by the right cartridge 2 - Printed by the left cartridge NOTE: If you are printing in reserve mode (one cartridge is missing), the missing cartridge's area of the diagnostic page will be blank. Step 5: Check ink levels NOTE: If you have installed a refilled or remanufactured ink cartridge, or a cartridge that has been used in another product, the ink level indicator is inaccurate or unavailable. Look in the middle of the diagnostic page. The bars with "E" (for "empty") and "F" (for "full") at each end show the ink levels in the cartridges. As ink is used, the solid color changes to a faded color.

I have HP 6540 ...... the black cartridge was emptry ( my son do this :) ) ...when i refill it (and put it in the printer) indicator says that the cartridge is empty. When i pres the buttons on the printer...

each cartridge has its unique serial number,
printer remembers him,
is absent sensor of the ink level determination in you cartridge. You can to print, but message will say to you "EMPTY CARTRIGE".
this warning function can be disconnected by you in printing driver.
If you bathe new cartridge, that level will show full.
If afterwards put(deliver) old , that he will show that empty.
Printer can have a memory about two or three last cartridges.

Black is full, colors are "low", refuses to print anything

If you have a look on this site you will see there are far more reported problems related to Canon than Epson however the choice is yours.

As to your cardridge problem. The Epson status monitor measures the amount of inkshots used by each cart individually. You know they have chips which indicate when the cart is empty and yet you have not bothered looking for a reset programme. Who's fault is that? The manufacture?

Give this a try, make sure to read the instructins before using.

Printer is printing blank pages ink levels read full.

Make sure that what you are printing from the PC is black. This sounds so trite, but if for some reason you have set the font to white you may be able to see what you have written on the screen - but it won't print. Another possibility is that somehow the print in the document has been set to 'hidden'. That doesn't help either.

Failing that you may have to reinstall the printer. Use the printer disc to do this.

Dell 926 injection refill kit didnt work

The ink your purchased is likely a cheap watered down version of what your printer is meant to take. You may notice that the ink smears when you rub the page directly after printing. Why you chose to use the blue and red ink to make black blows my mind. These refill kits are insanely cheap and buying the black could not have been much more. Not using black ink in the black cartridge would explain why your print is faded. Also, there is no way to reset the ink levels on this type of cartridge. As long as the printer still prints, just ignore the ink level indicator and print until the ink runs dry. I recommend Cartridge World for ink refills because they use high quality ink to manufacturer specified volumes while still saving you money.

Printer printing blank pages

Hello everybody. Try this :

Go to the printer properties by right clicking the default printer icon on Printer & Faxes in the Control Panel.

Go to Advanced Options and select the option that reads "Print Directly to the Printer."

It worked for me :p . the printer was not printing from Word and other programs but was printing test pages ok and the ink cartridges are new.
