Not true. i have 4300 and i refill it at list 2 a week. :) just tell the printer to stop monitoring you ink level when it askes and it should work.

Some printers are not compatible with refilled ink. The best thing to do is buy original cartridge

Ink light and paper light keep flashing alternately on my epson l110, how can i fix this ?


It may be a paper jam error. I find when you use an old or rough page in your printer, it don't properly go to its way and cause to displace a sensor that is situated at under the Head carriage of this printer which can be seen in following pictures.
Solution: check if this problem is occurred after paper jam then check the sensor is on its proper place or not if not then open the printer upper cover, open the lock of carriage rod from both sides. Set the sensor at its proper place and then check it.

Empty cartridge light keeps flashing


These cartridges don't have anything internally to check for new ink. They simply work on a basis of counting pages and page coverage to estimate ink levels. As such it is perfectly normal for your printer to warn of low ink once the cartridge has been refilled.

A low ink warning in itself should not stop your printer from printing though. If it does it is likely that the light is actually indicating a problem recognising the cartridge after refilling. I would recommend cleaning the copper contacts on the front of the cartridge and checking for any messages on the connected PC or laptop for more information.

Red light flashing


Dear assistenc, In laser printer red light flashes for mainly two reason. 1. If there is no paper, 2. If there is no cartridge or the cartridge is empty or having problem. So check the paper and cartridge. Must probably, it is the cartridge. Change the Cartridge and it will solved. But remember, in samsung printer, cartridge refilling is successful. So if you can, refill the cartridge, it is less expensive. Thanks.

I have a Samsung ML-2525 BW laser printer. Recently, the red bar second from the top started flashing and then it went solid. I thought this was because of the ink toner, and the cartridge was running low...


I guess it FixYa didn't accept my (very long, but totally correct) solution that I took the time to type. Because I refused to "sign in".
Here's the short version. Load Paper. The same thing happened to me. I replaced the toner cartridge with a new one (because of a FLASHING red light for several weeks) after the red light went to STEADY red. But it still would not print. The paper was "out". When I'd refilled the paper-tray, it printed fine. I had just ASSUMED that the steady-red light meant toner was finally OUT. WRONG! That steady-red light had nothing-to-do with toner; it meant "you're out-of-paper". Don't get confused like I did. Refill the paper-tray. Then take that expensive NEW toner cartridge OUT, and put the OLD toner cartridge back in. And keep using the "dregs" of the toner out of the old cartridge for several more weeks. And DON'T get confused by the paper-is-out condition making that red light STEADY.

Just changed cartridges to refills and clour and black lights flashinghowever we can still print ok. Why are the lights flashing?


The lights are flashing because you are using refilled cartridges. The printer "sees" those cartridges as empty, since it can not know that someone has refilled them. When you put in new cartridges, the lights will stop flashing.
Just ignore the lights and print!

Hope that helps!

Hp f335 just refilled ink carts. Now i keep


Unfortunately there is no way to reset the electronics on this type of cartridge so your printer will always think they are empty. If the light flashes and you can still print, then just ignore the flashing. If your printer won't allow you to print, then the cartridge electronics must be bad. If the electronics are bad, there is nothing you can do to rescue the cartridge and you need to get a new one. I would return the cartridge to where you purchased it from and instead see if you have a Cartridge World store in your area. These stores would not sell you a refilled cartridge with bad electronics.
