  1. Press the On (I just refilled my ink cartridges and for some - c00636182.gif ) button to turn off the unit.
  2. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the unit.
  3. Connect the power cord to the back of the unit.
  4. Press the On (c00636182.gif ) button to turn on the unit.and hold it down 10 se
this are the usual procedure..some do it by actually power off ..disconnect power cord..hold down the button ..and connect power cord with the button pressed..and after it powers..release the button ..try it both way s..the issue is that you probably used refilled cartridges and it needs to reset the counters..

SOURCE: Refilled my Dell Ink Cartridge

It's never going to recognize a product that is not original even if it's refilled in the Dell cartridge. That's happened to me--you get used to it. Dell just wants you to get it from THEM and not from any where else. I have a 922 All-in-One....It's been good for the past 3 years.

SOURCE: does canon MP190 cannot detect cartridges with ink

To directly answer your question, no the type of ink in the cartridge is undetectable, however, the anticipated cartridge life is and that's what is tested.
Roughly speaking about 80 to 85% of problems involving ink or toner are resolved by the following:
A refilled (worst possible choice) cartridge , toner or ink, or third party cartridge (2nd. worst possible choice) that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent the problems from contaminated inks causing serious product problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.

I have a Canon MP210 printer After replacing the ink cartridges, the B and C amber lights are flashing alternatively. I have checked the inks are inserted correctly, switched everything off and on and...


Did you refill your cartridge?

This is very important to find out considering what Canon system has.

If you used refilled cartridge, sometimes cartridge can't be readable.

Why? that's what Canon made originally.

As for the prevention, pls.....unpluge the power first before you take out the cartridge from printer.

In this way, you can at least prevent what it happens...

If you would like to save money, try refill kit by "ROADINK".
Not only they are easy, but also the printing quality is good.
For your better understanding pls check out my youtube video.

Lights on printer flashing -printer will not print


Flashing light signals you that your cartridge ink is empty. Sorry to know you're in trouble with your printer. Here are my suggestions: You have to buy a new genuine cartridge or you can refill ink. Be warned! Refilling ink or using a refilled ink cartridges will not work until the ink cartridge chip or ink monitor is disabled. For instructions on how to disable an ink cartridge chip, please visit [http://www.ehow.com/how_6201242_disable-ink-cartridge-chip.html] Now you can CURSE the manufacturer of your printer for making your life sucks by making it complicated the things that should be made SIMPLE and EASY. Printer or Cartridge, more or less, cost you the same. Don't you think the printer cartridges should be made simply refillable/usable unless they are broken, and we should be buying only the ink for the cartridges. It is SO ANNOYING, dude! Good luck.

Refill lexmark 37xl ink


I own a Cartridge World ink refilling store and we do not refill the Lexmark 36 and 37. The reason is that your printer turns off the electronics on the cartridge when the ink gets low, so you can't reuse the cartridge. Your printer will only function with an electronically functioning cartridge. We NEVER recommend Lexmark printers. They are poorly made, don't accept refills a lot of the time, and across manufacturer their ink costs the most and is designed to clog the cartridge if you don't use it fast enough. We recommend HP printers that take integrated print head cartridges and Canon printers that take tank style cartridges.

My HP 6500 only prints yellow and black. I refilled all three color cartridges and only the yellow is working. Any ideas?


I own a printer cartridge refilling store and I can't refill these cartridges yet because the chip needs to be replaced/reset and we don't have the technology to do it yet. The reason why only the refilled yellow is working is probably because the chip still thinks there's ink in the cartridge. However, your yellow cartridge will most likely soon not print as well. The other cartridges the chips are telling the printer they are empty. Printer manufacturers like to do this kind of thing so you have to spend the extra money to buy their ink. I would not recommend even trying to refill these yourself until you see reputable retailers with refills (i.e.- Cartridge World, Office Depot, etc).

Refilled the ink and it is still saying it needs


Unfortunately, you may need to buy new Epson manufactured ink cartridges. Some of the ink cartridges and/or printers have a setting that says this cartridge is empty and refilling the cartridge does not clear the empty code.

After replacing ink cartridge printer dose not reconize one of six


Using refilled in cartridges and incompatible inks result in the following problems.
  • Refilled ink cartridges might leak and cause product damage. One method for refilling ink cartridges is to drill a hole through the cartridge, refill the ink, and then plug it. In some cases this plug does not hold, and the ink runs into the product and damages the printed circuit boards.
  • Refilled ink cartridges frequently exhibit spotty printing or fail to print. This problem might be a direct result of the nozzles being plugged with dried ink. Because the vents of the refilled cartridges have been opened, air is able to enter the cartridge and dry the ink.
  • Refilled ink cartridges might exhibit lower print quality, for the following reasons.
    • Printing algorithms used to create the various colors are based on particular printer inks. Using incompatible inks might result in color matching problems.
    • Refilled cartridges might have damaged nozzle orifices, result in various problems with print quality.
    • company products to which the printer belongs to can use a time delay between pages to accommodate the properties of the specific media type and ink being used. This prevents smearing problems from one page to the next. Using incompatible ink will alter the effects of this time delay and might result in poor print quality.
  • printer might not recognize refilled ink cartridges. The refilling process may involve altering the ink cartridge enough that the product is unable to recognize it. The condition of the print cartridge electrical contacts deteriorates with use. This also results in the product being unable to recognize the refilled cartridge.
  • Refilled ink cartridges might get stuck in the product. Because the cartridges from other manufacturers have been altered, cartridges might become stuck in the product. This problem might require that the product be disassembled to remove the cartridge.
  • printer at times cannot predict the long-term effects on product reliability from using different ink formulations.

have a nice day.

Refilled ink cartridges


The reason why the printer says supply expired because the ink cartridge has its own warranty. When the warranty of the ink cartridge has expired then you will get that message. Eventhough you refill it. You need to replace the ink cartridge itself.

Above link great.
If you have a newer print cartridge cart, look for the little window. I put a sticker over the little window on the Brother (innobella) LC38 cartridge cart and it worked great :)
Despite finding a fix for this problem, I think this is a rip off setting on the brother printers and I will never buy another Brother printer for this reason.

Flashing ink refill light


Sometimes refilling them over and over doesn't work well. Once ok...but i suggest that you buy a new cartridge. I know that they are expensive but it will help. Also take some Rubbing alchohol and a q-tip...clean inside where the cartridge sits..that will help...this is for sure a bad ink cartridge
