Cleaned an followed all troubleshooting, still, nothing.

    my x1270 shows the color full, but still won't print in color. I have cleaned all points, installed and reinstalled the new 27 cartridge about 10 times. What else can I try?? Thanks

    We reinstalled our printer but still our printer will not print the color line of the test page or anywhere else for that matter. Only the black and white lines. We have a new color and b/w cart. and they are installed correctly. They even show up as full. What is up?

    Put new black and color cartridge in. Now I can't get anything to print. I tried all the options like 16/17 and 26/27 and "old" or "new". Still nothing. It won't print anything now and this is only the first time I replaced cartridges. Machine is like brand new. Can you only run one cartridge through this print and then dispose of the entire printer?

How to override lexmark s415 low ink


There's no way to override the low ink warning. If one of the cartridges is out of ink, you won't be able to continue printing.

Refilled cartridges will not report or reset the ink levels.

Have installed new ink cartridge. still getting low inw warning


Hi there,

The low ink cartridge warning is nothing to worry about. If it prints, it prints. Most modern printer cartridges have a chip on it which lets the printer know when the ink is low. When you run low on ink, it sends a message to the printer which sends a message to the computer telling you to refill the ink. The problem is that it doesn't go away once you refill the ink. It still prints, you just get a notification whenever you want to print. You can still use it up until that new cartridge runs out of ink. :)

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.

Keeps saying insert colour cartridge when we have just bought a new cartridge of correct spec. Says incorrect colour cartridge installed.Impossible to get past!!!


Hi,The most common reason for missing or incorrect colors is a print cartridge with one of the following problems:
  • One or more of the ink colors is empty. The black ink and all three colors of ink in the tri-color cartridge must be available or colors will be incorrect or missing. Under normal usage, the print cartridge will run low on one color of ink shortly before all ink colors are emptied.
  • The protective tape is not removed from a new cartridge.
  • Contacts on the cartridge are not making proper contact with the print carriage.
  • The cartridge is remanufactured or refilled.
  • The cartridge is defective.

MP160 ink level won't reset


The only _bypass_ is to ignore the warnings/lamps, and keep using your printer until it runs out of ink.

The only _solution_ is to purchase "original" cartridges, i.e., do not use "refilled" cartridges.

Canon MP470: "Print Head is not installed. Install Print Head"


Some printer brands have a cute scheme that reads a "new" cartridge as good, but the refilled one has a small fuse link that is burned out by the printer. Try factory new cartridges. Unplug the printer power for a bit to reset the printer.

Canon MP210 Ink Counter Reset


You can find the solution here:

You must hold the stop/resume button for 2 or 3 seconds. The printers detects that it's a filled cartridge and alert you about it... That's all.

Losing Ink


Depending on how many times you have refilled the wells of the cartride the sensor inside may be going bad as the manufature of the cartridge only intended it for a one time use. My recommendation would be to buy a off brand compatible and refill those.

Ink low error


Hi there the ink cartridges are designed to be used once. Most of these new ink cartridges have a set chip on it once you have installed a new cartridge it registers that a new one has been installed and resets the ink counter for that cartridge. When you refill the cartridge it doesn't reset the chip.

I don't know how to reset the chip but the best suggestion I can offer is to purchase a compatible cartridge that has been reset.

Thanks J

Low warning annoying me


Dell's proprietary grip on its printers causes this message to appear with any non-Dell or refilled cartridge. The messages/ink filled levels will only be reset if you buy a new Dell ink cartridge or have a way to update their encoding strip.

The good news is that you can still use refilled cartridges just minimize the level warnings to the task bar and ignore them when they come up. Everything should still print fine.
