The ink is fine in the cartridge. The ink level indicator just thinks the cartrdige is still empty. You can ignore the message or turn it off all together. Just bring in your cartrdige for a refill when it shows signs of fading or streaking. Go to www.inkjet411.com for more help
With this type of cartridge your printer will always think refills have low ink. This is because the electronics on the cartridge cannot be reset to tell the printer it is full of ink. However you should still be able to print and just ignore the ink levels. I think the problem you are having is that the electronics on your cartridge are no longer functioning. Unfortunately there is no way to fix this problem. I know you can buy refills from Cartridge World stores, but I don't know about other retailers.
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.
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.
Use only genuine cartridges with your printer. Printers these days have a built in sensor that can sense non compatible/generic/refilled cartridges and wont install them. It will only cause you more problems in the long run if you use a generic cartridges.
