I installed brand new ink cartridges and saying its low ink

I was able to print 2 pictures when I first installed ink. Now the alarm is on saying color empty. I had same problem with 2 cartridges bought a couple days ago. The store replaced them with these.

I don't know how to get it to say full ink.

    Hi Where they genuine canon ink cartridges?? If not then I suggest you try them as this model of printer is self adjusting when a new cartridge is replaced. If it is genuine then the print head has a problem, will require Authorised agent to examine. Get quote first as it is usually cheaper ot buy new one.

Put brand new lexmark 28 cartridge just 4 days ago. Maybe used 10 times. Computer says ink is low and won't print anymore. However, can still make copies.


It could be just a slight communication failure between your cartridges and the printer. Try to re-seat the cartridges by removing and re-inserting them into the cartridge carrier.
I hope this helps.

I have changed the colour ink on my canon mp460 but it still say empty


CL41, this is the one you are using for your cartridge.

Did you change your cartridge with brand new one or refilled one??

If you did with refilled one, the ink level won't go back with full.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This is the method how printer measures the ink level.

1. Each cartridge has a serial number.
2. As soon as installation in printer, printer recognizes the cartridge by serial #.
3. And the printer starts to count the printing document.
4. After reaching certain print counting, the ink level will show "low ink"

So my answer is even if you refilled your cartridge, the ink level won't change,
since printer cannot weight the cartridge or.....some other technology to measure each color ink level.

Thanks.

Installed new ink cartridges mx 300, compatible B&W 40, color 41, printer status still says low ink, printing as if it is low ink. properly installed, tape removed, what i miss? can I check something...


Do you know what?. As a matter of fact,it is not compatible cartridges you buy. It is refurbished cartridges that repackaged with other brand as if this is their product. I say it is original cartridges that once empty and repackaged. So that's why when you install the cartridge the ink level stays low. You can make it sure by comparing it with new original cartridge. Find original cartridge,may be you can borrow from someone,which ink level still full and install on your printer. I am a hundred percent sure ink level will show properly :).

I installed new ink cartridges, printer detects a problem


You could try doing the clean program 3 times and then doing a nozzle check. I have had the same problem with both cartridges since I got mine refilled at Cartridge World and they told me to do this. It works sometimes but when I print again the page doesn't print well and I repeat the process.

Ink is low unable to scan/fax


I had the same problem. I had just installed new black ink cartridge and had the same problem "CHECK INK" and alarm light is on. My color ink had just runned out. I was just about to go buy the color ink to see if it would fix the problem but decided to try it one more time. This is what to do..Click on the print command and a cannon message will pop up saying that you have no ink (it being the black or the color) then you will get the CHECK INK message all you have to do is PRESS the "Stop/ Reset" button for atleast 5 seconds and it will let you print..

I have a new canon mp210 printer ink is low i bought new ink to replace old their is no ink cartridges in printer. When i look at the pictures to load new ink and put it in alarm light is flashing


Even if the ink level is low, you can continue printing.Press the paperfeed knob for 5 seconds. inklevel indicator will stop now.
Sometimes a new (or refilled) cartridge is not recognised correctly.
When one color is really mt, stop printing and replace inmideatly the colorcartridge.Printing or scanning without the 2 cartridges in place is impossible.

Installing ink cartridge


I've had this problem too. The only way to make the message go away is to buy the ink from Dell. Although generic ink cartriges will work the printer will not/can not reset the "low ink" message unless you buy the cartriges directly from Dell. So you can use another brand, but you'll just have to overide the low ink message when it pops up by telling it to continue printing. Then you can tell when the ink is low by seeing it when it prints out.
