Re: cx5500 all in one and use T0731-4 ink cartridges
If you are using a compatible cart and the printer has twice reported the cart as empty when they are new, chances are there is a problem with the printer. You can buy a chip reseter off ebay for a couple of bucks and try resetting the cart. If the machine still reports the cart is empty you either have dodgy chips on your carts or the printer is having problems reading the chip, This could be caused by a bent pin/contact in the print head cartridge receiver.

the most important is to remove all the air from the cartridge that has left inside durring refilling that is why professionals are using special machines that refill in 0 air πρεσυρε using vaccum pump
you can check here a video on how to refill with out any special equipment
Sounds like a badly clogged nozzle. If you are using aftermarket/refilled cartridges, the changes are the ink is not up to manufacturer specs and has dried and clogged the nozzle. The best way to clear this is to take a new black ink OEM cartridge and run the deep cleaning a number of times (at least 3) to see if the nozzle can be cleared. If you continue to use non-OEM cartridges, I would keep a set of OEM cartridges around for nozzle clearing purposes. Also, take the aftermarket ink cartridges back to the vendor and either get an upgraded cartridge or refund.
Let me know if this corrects the problem. Thanks.
Yes it will still print with black provided that your computer still detects the colored cartridge tanks.If you are certain that there is still some ink left on the colored ones, take them one by one and shake them hard as if you are trying to distribute the ink evenly. After that, you need to do a test print to utilize the colored inks.
This indicates that you have a potentially defective ink cartridge. Pull out the cartridges and make sure that all wrapping has been removed from the nozzles and that the top side wrapping has been removed from the breather area on top. Reinsert the cartridges and make sure they snap into place.
If you are using non-OEM cartridges I would try OEM cartridges. Sometimes, non-OEM cartridge ink will gum up the printer.
Let me know if this solves the problem.
