Re: Re: Dell ink refill
RU running color check from printer utility program? If so try going to settings..printers...right click on printer and choose print test page..if that does not print color then check your print settings..it may be set to print black/white only.

Press your printer's button to position the ink heads for replacement
Then gently pull out the problematic ink cartridge.
Turn the printer OFF to reset the printer's memory.
After about 3 minutes, turn ON your printer and it should now ask for the missing ink cartridge.
Now gently put on the problematic ink cartridge in place.
Let the printer re-charge the inks and clean the ink heads afterward through the printer's maintenance program installed in your computer. (Go to "Printer's and Faxes, right click on your installed printer, then click "Printer's Preferences. Go to the "maintenance tab" and click on something like Print Head Cleaning.)
From doing my research, I have found that the 50C Error message comes from the cartridge, usually if it has been refilled. If this cartridge is new, please return it to the place of purchase for a new one or a refund.
Here's what happens when you refill the Dell Series 2 ink cartridges. There is a sensor in them that cannot be reset.
Dell ink cartridges can only be purchased at Staples, Walmart or Dell's website.
Dell ink cartridges have a sensor that reports the ink level as low
once it reaches a certain level. The sensor can not be reset. If you
refill an ink cartridge that previously reported low ink, it may print
fine, but the sensor will always report low ink. Buying or replacing
ink cartridges with new Dell cartridges will resolve the low ink
Dell discourages ink refills. Refilling ink may lead to print
quality problems, and even eventual hardware problems.
if u have not refilled ur cartridge and u still get this error i suggest u buy a new cartridge.....
The series 9 cartridges can be refilled. As long as the electronics are still functioning on your cartridge you should be able to print no problem. There is no way to reset the ink levels on these cartridges so you will just need to ignore the ink level warnings. I would recommend Cartridge World for ink refills. Many other stores and on-line sellers don't do the cleaning, vacuum filling, electrical testing, and print testing that Cartridge World stores do to make sure your cartridge works.
I had this same printer but never was able to reset it. It has some type of sensor on it. That will not let it reset. I was told to unplug it from the computer. Turn the printer off. Reboot the system and plug the USB connector back into it once the system is booted. You may also try to reinstall the printer driver. I also find out that when the printer software says that the ink is low, it really is not. So keep on printing. What I eventually had to do is get a HP. No problem with HP, I can get a refill and it works. Now that I am think about this. See if you can disable the ink monitoring option in the software. I hope this helps. Please rate.
The ink your purchased is likely a cheap watered down version of what your printer is meant to take. You may notice that the ink smears when you rub the page directly after printing. Why you chose to use the blue and red ink to make black blows my mind. These refill kits are insanely cheap and buying the black could not have been much more. Not using black ink in the black cartridge would explain why your print is faded. Also, there is no way to reset the ink levels on this type of cartridge. As long as the printer still prints, just ignore the ink level indicator and print until the ink runs dry. I recommend Cartridge World for ink refills because they use high quality ink to manufacturer specified volumes while still saving you money.
After hours of reading about this I finally found the solution. This will NOT reset your levels but you will be able to print without being told you have empty levels.
Start, Control Panel, then Printers and Faxes.
On the next screen, Right click on your printer then on Printing Preferences. Now select the Advanced tab.
Near the bottom left, you will see more options. Click that and then Appearance. Check NEVER display printing status and make sure under Complete-A-Print, all is unchecked. Click OK at the bottom.
You can print without the stupid messages coming up. Dells printer ink cartridges have a computer chip in them and the refurbished ink does not which causes these error messages telling you your ink cartridges are empty.
