The printer keeps messaging ink on sseveral colours is low but it is not. Have even tried new cartridges but no difference, same message . Seems to be misreading ink level


Some printers need special software (that shipped with the printer) to "tell" the printer that the ink-cartridge has been replaced, and that the ink-levels need to be fully "reset".

Bland and color cartridges have been refilled but


Ink level counter (program) didn't read actually ink at ink tank. Brand new cartridge ink level counter 100% (full), and ink 100% (about 10 ml). After may printing, ink will dry out, and ink level counter reach zero (ink out). Printer will not allow print anymore, even have refilled, because ink level read "ink out". For canon type, you just to release ink level counter, and counter just stop, but printer will allow to print. Press stop/reset button for about 30 second.

I keep getting the message "remove and check cartridge on right. I do this, but it doesn't solve the problem. The printer worked fine until I installed a new black ink cartridge. After so many times of...


The cartridge on the right is the black ink cartridge. The one on the left is the color.
Make sure you have pushed the cartridge in all of the way and that you have removed the tape cover from the cartridge before you insert it.
If you bought aftermarker or third party cartridges, you have a cartridge that is not filled properly. If you purchased it from a local retailer, return it and try another cartridge.
The Hp reads the levels from the gold connectors on the cartridge. If they are blocked, or damaged or the cartridge is not full, you will get this message.

After refilling the colored cartridge, error message say that the colored cartridge is empty what do i do?


There is no way to reset the ink levels on these cartridges. If the printer will print, just print until the ink runs out. You can also tell your printer to "ignore ink levels" so you don't get the low ink message every time you print.

Cartridge Error message on our Lexmark X5150


The Lexmark machines are designed to kick out anything it suspects may be refilled. If your old cartridge has bad print nozzles this may be tripping the error. Printers are typically for sensitive with their color cartridges anyway because the manufacturers make more money on the color ones. You can try looking around the settings on the machine and in the printer preferences to see if you can tell it to ignore the ink levels and see if you can continue to print.

My all-in-one printer A940 reads "error 50c" i have replaced both ink cartages what could b the problem?


Hi there Error 50c

Regarding the Dell A940 "Error 50c"....the user guide doesn't seem to mention "Error 50c". They do, however, mention a "Cartridge Error" on page 52 of the manual. They claim this means that the printer has detected a short circuit (fuse/resister) in the cartridge. As you may or may not have noticed in the manual, this is what they recommend doing about it:

1) Press Power to turn the printer off.

2) Lift the printer cover/lid (scanner unit) until the scanner support holds it open.

3) Turn the printer on.
The ink cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position unless the printer is busy.

4) Remove the color ink cartridge.

5) Lower the printer (scanner unit) until it is completely closed.
If the error message displays again, replace the black cartridge with a new black cartridge.

If the error message does not display, repeat steps 1–3 and then go to step 6.

6) Reinstall the color cartridge and remove the black ink cartridge.

7) Lower the printer (scanner unit) until it is completely closed.

If the error message displays again, replace the color cartridge with a new
color cartridge.
If there is no error message (indicated by flashing lights), repeat steps 1–3 and then reinstall both ink cartridges.
8) Lower the printer (scanner unit) until it is completely closed.

If you get the error message again, while both cartridges are installed, replace both of the cartridges.

Basically, what they want you to determine is,....if the short circuit is with the "black ink" cartridge or the "color ink" cartridge and then replace the cartridge that has the problem.

You may have to buy a new cartrige.
Please all I ask is call back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one, so I will keep on helping.

Error message on HP 2800 business inkjet, message reads 1% ink left on brand new cartridge


Hello,

View the user manual here. http://bizsupport2.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00449611/c00449611.pdf

go to page 60 and follow the instructions for replacing the ink cartridge, remember to have the printer on when you do.

Then go to page 62 and allign the print head automaticly following the instructions it gives.

This will re-callibrate the ink level on the printer and should read correctly for you.

Thanks
