Did you buy an original or refilled cartridge??

SOME of the catridges for Pixma will read empty even when new and full. ESPECIALLY the refilled ones.

I would return it to where you bought it along with your printer and test the new cartridge IN THE SHOP.

maybe your ink cartridge is stock. try to pull out the ink then put it back turn off your printer then on if still not solve, just bring it back where you buy you have your warranty for that to replace.

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.

New ink went bad overnight


DancerTiffy,

I can't tell you why your machine is acting like that nor can I tell you that you have a problem.

What I can tell you is that you're not alone when it comes to the ink drying out all of the sudden. In the past few years I can't count the number of people who have explained this problem. I also can't count the number of people that have said their Epson produces the highest quality prints and their happy with it.

Your problem could be the printer or it could be the ink. Since it already happened twice it's hard to say.

  • How long have you had the machine?
  • Still under the retail store's return policy?
  • Still under the manufactures warranty?
  • Only two prints were printed?

Ink cartridge error


Check the date on your ink cartridge.  I bet it has expired.  If you put in a "new"cartridge but it is even an HP one with an older date, it may not work.
I had my printer stop in the middle of a print job.  It was printing fine and suddenly would not print.  So I refilled the cartridge with an ink kit I had on hand and reinserted it--no go!  Then I opened a remanufactured cartridge I had bought some time ago and inserted it.  No go, despite the fact I could see ink coming from the jets.  I finally gave up and bought a new HP ink cartridge, and it worked just fine.  But it bugged me why the new one would work and the other two that seemed just fine would not.

Later I learned that HP has a chip that reads the expiration date on the cartridges and that is what keeps those old ones from printing.  I found one trick of setting my date on my computer back to a year earlier than the exp date on the cartridge.  I saw the date on the remanufactured one I had tried earlier was 2005, so I set my computer date to today's date but year 2004.  After forcing me to do print alignments several times and take the remanufactured cartridge out and put it back, I got it to print just fine.  And that 2005 cartridge that would not work earlier is what I am printing with right now.
