Don't use refill kits, they are no good in quality printers. Also the cartridges in the newer models have a chip in them that knows when the cartridge is empty. When it becomes empty, the chip has to be reset, and this is what those mall cartridge fillers do.


E, 1, 3 The ink may have run out. The function for detecting the remaining ink level will be disabled since the ink level cannot be correctly detected. If you want to continue printing without this function, press the machine's Stop (Reset) button for at least 5 seconds. Canon recommends to use new genuine Canon cartridges in order to obtain optimum qualities. Please be advised that Canon shall not be liable for any malfunction or trouble caused by continuation of printing under the ink out condition. Checking the Ink Status Checking the Ink Status with the Ink Lamps on the Operation Panel The ink level detector is mounted on the machine to detect the remaining ink level. The machine considers as ink is full when a new FINE cartridge is installed, and then starts to detect a remaining ink level. If you install a used FINE cartridge, the indicated ink level of it may not be correct. In such case, refer to the ink level information only as a guide. When remaining ink cautions or errors occur, the error code will be displayed on the LED (Light Emitting Diode) to inform you of the error. Check the error code and take appropriate action. -> [ An Error Code Is Displayed on the LED ] See[Checking the Ink Status ]

How do you check the ink levels of the cartridges on a hp deskjet 940c


Hi,
If the ink level is low in a print cartridge, the Print Cartridge Status light stops flashing when the printer’s top cover is opened. When you open the panel the ink cartridges slide to the center , as far as checking the ink level find and right click on the printer icon, click properties, and find ink cartridges and ink levels.
Thanks
Shereena.

Epson DX4850 problem getting ink levels to highlight using Vista


Checking the level of ink in an Epson printer can be done without having to remove the ink cartridges. This method works on black and white as well as color inkjet printers. Checking the level of ink can help you plan ahead when buying new cartridges
Instructions:
  • Install the Epson StatusMonitor software. This program comes on the CD included with the printer. It can also be downloaded from the Epson Web site. or from http://download.cnet.com/Epson-Status-Monitor-2/3000-2116_4-10024738.html
  • Open the Epson StatusMonitor program in any application (such as word processing, spreadsheets or Web browsers) that allows you to print. Click on the "File" menu tab in the control bar of the application
  • Select print or page setup from the "File" menu. A dialog box will open. In that box, click on the "StatusMonitor" icon, which will open the "Epson StatusMonitor" dialog box. Also, you can click on the "Utility" icon and then the "Epson StatusMonitor" button from the "Utility" dialog box.
  • Click on the "Update" button to update the display (if you do not think these levels are accurate) when the "Epson StatusMonitor" dialog box displays the relative ink levels for each cartridge in the printer.
  • Go back to the "Print" dialog box to change the way that the StatusMonitor utility monitors your printer and ink levels. Click on the "Utility" button again.
  • Click on the "Configuration" button in the "Utility" dialog box. The open "Configuration" dialog box will let you adjust settings such as ink level warnings and ink level monitoring before each printing.

How do I check the ink level in the printer


Most printer will let you check the ink level using the Menu and it is sometimes under a category called Supplies or Ink Levels. If this is a laser printer you are working with Toner and its not exactly the same.

Canon i9950 prints green on photo paper


I had the same problem. Having checked other websites I came across the following which narrowed down the problem to the Photo Cyan / Photo Magenta ink tanks, and replacing the Photo Magenta one (although it was not empty) has successfully resolved the problem. Eveidently ink from the original one was not flowing and so caused the syan cast. (I experimented by subsequently removing the Cyan one which produced prints with Magenta cast)

TEXT OF POST I FOUND:-

That post is labeled "Cannon (sic) S9000 Print Head" and concerns a greenish hue error in all print quality levels OTHER THAN plain paper. In other words, all output designated as Photo Paper Pro, Glossy, High Resolution Paper, etc., results in output with enormous and unacceptable levels of green hue. All output designated as "Plain Paper" whether the output actually is on plain paper or photo paper pro, turns out well.

This problem is not unique to the S9000, as I experienced it identically with the S820 and predictably can occur in any printer with the six cartridge print head.

It is a frustrating problem because you know that the printer is physically capable of printing WITHOUT the hue (as it proves to you each time you choose a "plain paper" paper setting.)

Troubleshooting by reinstalling and updating the printer drivers, and uninstalling/reinstalling the ZoomBrowser EX, replacing the ink cartridges, and deep cleaning are all blind alleys.

A call to Canon support solved the problem for me with this simple and important revelation:

The Plain Paper setting is unique in its use of only 4 of the 6 cartridges. In the Plain Paper setting, only the black, cyan, magenta and yellow cartridges are utilized. The Photo Magenta and Photo Cyan are not utilized. In all higher resolution settings, i.e., in all other settings, all 6 cartridges are utilized.

It follows that if one's problem disappears when not using these two Photo cartridges (i.e., when printing at the Plain Paper setting), then the problem lies with these cartridges.

(In my case, I'd loaded a plain "Cyan" cartridge in the "Photo Cyan" slot during earlier trouble shooting and had forgotten to replace it with the proper Photo Cyan cartridge.)

Problems with magenta hues would admit of the same solution.

Hope that helps anyone else out there tearing out their hair trying to troubleshoot this. "

You need to manually tell the printer it has new ink levels, because when you change errors and settings, sometimes it will not automatically reset ink levels. cheers lilacgerry
