Most likely a defective printer... having the same issue, tried everything there was to be tried in the manual and on some forums, contacted Lexmark support (no phone support for this model) the only answer I got from them was "we're sorry for the inconvenience, you have a defective printer and it's no longer covered by warranty"

Should I buy printer cartridge or not?


If you do not have a user manual for this printer then download one from this site. It should explain which ink cartridges types to buy and how to replace these. There are only two cartridges but based on the size you can buy different.

HP 662 Black Ink Cartridge (~120 pages);
HP 662 Tri-color Ink Cartridge (~100pages);
HP 662XL Black Ink Cartridge (~360 pages);
HP 662XL Tri-color Ink(~330 pages)

I just replaced the ink cartridge but I keep getting a message saying it is low on ink and needs refilled what can i do


I also use a Dell printer and this message is displayed if you do not use a brand new, Dell branded ink cartridge. If you have refilled your old Dell cartridge or used a refurbished cartridge, you will continously receive this message. I have not found a way to eliminated the message, but you can still continue to print. Just make sure to watch the quality of your print jobs since the program will no longer be able to monitor ink levels. The only way to prevent this message from appearing is to buy ink directly from http://www.dell.com

Replaced ink in printer with generic ink cartridges and error message 1203 came up.


A person might notice that buying new, name brand, ink cartridge for printer rapidly becomes quite an expenditure. Nonetheless, there are quite a lot of different methods to find the equal quality standard for a alot lower price. Your primary options are: name brand (OEM) ink cartridge for printer, matching generic ink printer cartridges or remanufactured ink printer cartridges.
When you are purchasing a replacement photo printer cartridge, consumers do have choices. It’s frequently assumed that shoppers are required to buy the expensive, name brand, cartridge for laser printer from the manufacturer, or the service contract will become void. Their belief merely is not correct. By law, the use of compatible replacement inkjet printer cartridges does not render null and void the printer makers guarantee. In truth, you can choose to get less pricey compatible cartridge for laser printer, or remanufactured cartridges, often with a realized savings of between 40% and 75%. All chief ink laser printer cartridge brands have matching versions, including IBM, and Xerox.

Name Brand Inkjet Cartridge for Laser Printer
Nearly all major makers of laser printers also create the replacement inkjet printer cartridges that are best matched for their particular laser printers. This option is ordinarily the most expensive, and in a lot of situations it is the lone choice available if you happen to get a new laser printer whose producer implanted computer chips in the ink printer cartridge. The point of this chip may possibly be to regulate the color ink flow, limit the cartridges use, or to standardize the cartridge in alignment. Nevertheless, if you pick out a similar, or remanufactured, cartridge for laser printer, it might not be able to interconnect with the laser printer and may harm the laser copier or cause it to quit working.

Comparable Generic Inkjet Cartridge for Laser Printer
When thinking about purchasing an ink printer cartridge for your laser printer, the key aspect you must to bear in mind is the price. Buying a brand new ink laser printer cartridge will be based upon how much you are prepared to give. You can buy a new brand name cartridge for printer, or you might purchase a new compatible (generic) ink printer cartridge. Both types of ink printer cartridges might provide you with the same quantity, quality and performance you insist on from your printer. The major difference is in cost: a brand name ink printer cartridge might easily cost nearly twice the price of a compatible cartridge for printer.
Compatible (generic) inkjet laser printer cartridges are made to meet OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) specs. These makers usually set very lofty standards of dependability and quality and also provide high quality results, regularly exceeding the quality specifications established by the OEM. These cartridge for printer are produced with new parts and are a lower priced option to costly name brand ink printer cartridges.
Buyers might also be surprised to see that the generic comparable cartridge will publish the same amount of, or more, pages than the original OEM cartridge. Largely, this is since certain original OEM ink laser printer cartridges are not filled all the way up. In this situation, a compatible ink cartridge for printer could give you twice the advantage: it reduces your price per cartridge and cost per page by printing additional pages

Changed yellow ink to new cartridge. Printer won't recognize.


I contacted the Brother site, the support function there. Pursuant to what I found there, I unplugged the printer for ten seconds and replugged. The message display then told me that cyan was empty, and that magenta was near empty.

I installed a new cartridge in place of the empty cyan, and that fixed it.

Canon PIXMA iP4200 won't print


I solved the problem (I hope more than temporarily) by going out and buying a new yellow ink cartridge. The new one seems to be working, but the cartridge that generated the error message was brand new, too - hardly a satisfactory outcome. I worked out that buying a new cartridge would be slightly cheaper than signing up for one of the Canon support plans. As you can guess, this experience does not augur well for me buying more Canon products in future.

Empty ink error message


Hi, its sad to say but the printer sounds that needed to be send to the nearest service center in your area. You already reseat & replace the ink cartridge and issue still present. Please call your printer manufacturer so that they can give you more options aside from sending it to service center. Thank you so much,

INK CARTRIDGE PROBLEM Remove and check cartridge on the right Refer to documentation hp photosmart 2575 all in one


Take the cartridge out and rub the contacts with a piece of damp tissue paper and try again.
Check the contacts in the printer itself where the cartridge sits. If there is any damage or pin hole on the white ribbon with the gold contacts on it then the printer is unrepairable but it sounds like a cartridge problem. Try changing the cartridge as well

HP PSC 1315 All-In-One InkJet Print Cartridge Error


Hello -
Did you perhaps not mean to post under the 1315? I am not sure if you have this printer or another model. The 1315 normally takes a different number ink cartridge.

Meanwhile - gotta tell you that the 1315 is the buggiest printer I ever had. If you purchased it recently and can find your receipt, I'd take it back! Since they've pretty much done away with the 1315, if it was a recent purchase, it was likely a clearance item from some place.

Try taking all the ink cartridges out, uninstall the printer entirely, and reinstall it (the entire printer, not just the cartridges). Blow your printer out with canned air as well - dust, pet hair, people hair, fuzz and general paper fibers can build up more than we think, and cause error messages and other printing problems.

That should help, if it was the 1315 model.

That being said, note that if it still doesn't work, and you have the 1315, save yourself a lot of grief and toss it in the trash and buy another cheap printer! 1315 is Bug City!

Ink problems....


Take all carts out of the machine. Have a look into the cart holder. Is there ink swapping beneath the white plastic? (You might shake the machine ;-)

If yes, the cart holder leaks and needs replacement.

If not (your lucky!) it could be that the automatic cleaning procedure which starts when a cart is changed has soaked the carts empty.

Do set machine with date and time and NEVER unplug NOR use a power switch which breaks the power supply.

Do use constant power and switch off machine by pressing stand-by-fax-button!

Everytime when machine comes to (new) power contact it runs an extensive ink cleaning procedure. thats why your carts are always near empty....
The stand-by will prevent this and machine does some cleaning procedures which consumes only a few drops(!) of ink!


The display asks you if you have changed the carts. Do answer this question by pressing 1 for YES or 2 for NO.
This will reset the built-in inkcountermanagement to the correct settings
