Refilling ink I just refilled my ink, both black and color. After I did this it still shows that my ink is running out? Is there a reset button for the ink? Thanks Traci

    When I open my printer from the computer, it does not have a place where you can select reset ink. This is the only printer I have owned that doesn't have this option. Yes, it is connected to my Dell Computer. It prints fine, but when I go to print something it says ink low. I did notice that these toners (black and color) that I just bought, have a gold piece on them near the ink, i was wondering if this had something to do with it, not being able to read the toner?

The 'gold' piece is the part that is important to keep grime and crud off of, since it's important to the printing process. If you only refilled them, then sometimes, the ink level software needs to be restored to default, so it can read the difference. Unfortunately, it's not like a gas tank that just shows the new level. May need to remove that print manager software, and reinstall, but try the default reset first. Got Backup?

I assume it is conected to a pc, not a stand alone unit. Most printers have a maintenance window and program. Click on your printer icon, find the ink refill window (may be undewr preferences or tools or similar). My lexmark has a cartridge change screen). Reset ink levels here. If you need more help post back please with more details of your maintenace window or choices. Cheers lilacgerry xxx

    I always say, if its not actually broken, don't touch it. You will know when to refill ink anyway when it stops printing correctly, and you try all other things such as cleaning etc, but if it really annoys you go to the printers manufacturer site and see if a new printer software is available for it (an upgrade or something). There may be one. You could also try unintalling it and reinstalling it to see if it is a driver issue too. lilacgerry xxx

Refilled ink catridges and printer still shows that the ink is low


If you unplug the printer from the wall and remove the power brick for 60 seconds, this will reset any error messages the printer has. I would then plug everything back in.

Power on the printer.

Open the printer(with the power on) and take out the Dell Series 5 black cartridge and then reseat it. I would then take out the color Dell Series 5 ink cartridge and reseat it. Now close the printer and it will print an alignment page.

Any error messages?

black cartridge = black side(left side) color cartridge = color side(right side)

photo cartridge = black side(left side) color cartridge = color side(right side)

Dell Series 5 ink cartridges have a sensor in them that cannot be reset. Article on refilling Dell ink cartridges.

Dell Series 5 ink cartridges can be purchased at Staples, Walmart or Dell's Website.

It's possible to get a Dell Series 5 ink cartridge with a bad sensor. I would that these back to the place of purchase for a replacement or a refund.

Canon Pixma MX320 - How To Disable Ink Cartridge Error Detection..


How to fix the printing problem when Canon PIXMA MX320 series detected the errors in your cartridge?

I have a canon Pixma328 and have been refilling ink for black and color cartridges for quite sometime now. The cartridges are close but after I drilled a small hole on the top part of the cartridge using a small screw, there I find a way to refill the ink that I bought from an ink refill store. The procedure needs extra care, not to touch the contact point (copper) because its sensitive and not to damage the inner part of the cartridge when I insert the needles of the syringe used for transferring ink.

After refilling the cartridge, the next thing to do is to reset the cartridge. This will clear your printer from displaying common printer errors like U053, U051 and U052. The importance of the "reset the cartridge" procedure is to avoid the printer from detecting your cartridge as reused one. The steps below is recommended to do after refilling an ink cartridge.
1. Turn off your printer
2. Press and hold the STOP/RESET button
3. Press and hold Power ON button
4. While holding the Power ON button, release the STOP/RESET button
5. While holding still the Power ON button, press twice the STOP/RESET button
6. Release the Power ON button
7. Wait until it display an "idle" message. It will take about a minute.
8. When "idle" appear, open the top cover to expose the cartridges.
9. Lift up the cover for cartridge holder and take out both the black and color cartridges
10. Return the cover of cartridge holder and turn off the printer
11. Return the top cover and turn on the printer again
12. After the printer initialize, return the cartridges.

What happened when ink ran out from a refilled cartridge and the printer detected it?
The printer will display an error U162 or U163. All functions of the all-in-one printer will stop and your printer will not work. The next thing you will know is you are in the front of a computer shop and buy a genuine canon cartridge.
But wait, there is still a way to fix this. Reset it again using a different procedure. Reset the detections of reusable cartridge.
1. Turn off your printer an turn it on again
2. After the printer initialize try to copy or print. The error will appear.
3. When the error is displayed on the display panel of the printer, Press and Hold the STOP/RESET button and wait until it self restart.
4. Release the STOP/RESET button the the printer is restarting.
5. Wait for a few seconds and the pending print jobs will commence.

You can print as long as you want, refill the ink as long as you want and save a lot of money from buying a genuine canon cartridge by just following this simple tips for Canon Pixma MX320 and/or Canon Pixma MX328 all-in-one printer

For those who have replaced their ink cartridge before try to use that again and do follow this tip to make that work again.

I have refilled my color ink. After it prints 20 pages it lights up the "color ink" button meaning it's out of ink and starts printing poorly. I tried refilling twice with new ink - same thing happened.


Try this, it will reset your counter.

Power off printer
Hold down STOP/RESET button then Press and Hold down Power button
Keep Power button down and Release STOP/RESET button
Push STOP/RESET button twice
Wait 20-30 seconds - our LED showed Idle
Push STOP/RESET button four times
Push Power button twice
Power off
Next time the printer is started the waste count will have been reset

Hello,after refilling ink cartridges HP21 and


Since HP’s ink technology is different from other manufacturers, they do not recommend to use refilled or remanufactured ink cartridges. Though the cost of genuine HP cartridges are bit expensive than the other cartridges, HP cartridges are manufactured in keeping mind the important factors print quality and customer satisfaction. Using the refilled cartridges may degrade the print quality and may damage the printer’s internal hardware.

I request you to use genuine HP Inkjet cartridges and verify the result.

RResetting Cartridges after refilling


Can't be reset. The Lexmark 32 & 33 (and porbably som others) contain a low ink sensor in the cartridge that once activated can NOT be reset. The key would be you have to refill before the low ink sensor gets activated. Don't know at what ink level that is, probably around 1/4 remaining.

You can try to press & hold the stop/reset button for 3-5 seconds.
If this still do not clear.
Again try to press & hold the stop/reset button for 3-5 seconds

If the stop/reset button does not work
You may try pressing the color button
