If the message appears on the printer screen then its a problem with the cartridge.
If you have already replaced the cartridge then it seems a problem with the sensor of the printer and the printer needs to be replaced.

However

If the message appears on the computer screen then reinstalling the software will solve the poblem for you.

Lexmark 3600-4600 stops at 34% when trying to print a test page. Color ink is low, but I only want black in any event.


If your color ink is already empty or not substantial for printing, then you must replace it with a new cartridge. The Lexmark printer will continue to print when there's substantial ink in the cartridges.
If you prefer to print in black and white as your default print setting, please follow the steps below: (make sure your black and color cartridges ink levels are good)

For Windows OS:

1. Go to Control Panel.

2. Open Printers and Faxes.

3. Right-click on Lexmark 3600-4600 Series print object and click on Properties.

4. In the Lexmark 3600-4600 Series Properties window, go to Advanced tab. Click on Printing Defaults.

5. In the Lexmark 3600-4600 Series Printing Preferences window, under Ink Use, select Print using black ink only. Click OK.

6. Click OK button in the Lexmark 3600-4600 Series Properties window to save the changes.


Your printer will print in black and white draft mode the next time you send a print job to the printer.


For Mac OS:


1. With the file (you wish to print) open, go to Print. A window will pop up.

2. Select the Lexmark printer.

3. Expand the arrow pointing down beside printer name if you're not able to see other options for printing. Look for Quality and Media.

4. Under Paper tab, select Print in Black and White.

5. Save this as your default print setting. Click Presets option and choose Save as. You can personalize the name for this default print setting (e.g. Black and White Draft or My Setting).



Select this Preset name every time you print your files/documents.

Hi, I have HP Photosmart Printer C7280. Just got the black cartridge refilled and printer still says replace black cartridge, low on ink. Had an old one, which I got refilled too, when that is...


they have a "special" chip inside them, this records the tonor/ink level and also gives it an expiry data. unless the chip if replaced it will always say the same.

I need to reset my ink levels on my lexmark s305 after refilling cartridges


I managed to successfully refill the black cartridge for the S305; I did it when the printer warned of 'very low black ink' (although it didn't print very well - i.e. grey - until the following day). It kept displaying 'low ink' but printed fine for a few months.
I think if you can catch it before the printer decides it needs an 'official' refill or replacement then it works (although when exactly this is is a mystery, as it always displays 'low' for black ink).
Yesterday, the printer decided it wouldn't print until the cartridge was changed.
Refilled; waited for half a day;replaced several times; turned the printer on and off 5 times with no cartridge in (to see if it would wipe the printer's memory of the cartridge); and spent about 4 hours online trying to find a solution.
If it starts working tomorrow, I'll let you know. I don't want to mess about with software that may reset the ink levels. (If anyone finds some that works, please post!)
It looks like Lexmark have ensured they can pile in the cash with their original cartridges.
I've heard about generic cartridges that are chipped to avoid the above problem - I'll visit my local refill store soon.
There must be a way round this!
Cheers, Fronter

My dell all in one 948 printer always have low black ink. After I put in a new black ink and after five prints the indicator said low black ink. Please provide a solution.


The ink sensor is malfunctioning, make sure the area it plugs into(contacts and ink port is not dirty fouled or clogged up and that any plastic or strips are removed that are supposed to be removed, a cotton swab dipped in alcohol goes a long way with printer problems. make sure its unplugged and hold the power button down for a few seconds before touching any sensors for safety even unplugged machines can hold a charge in them.

I have a Samsung fax machine, model SF-3100. It is about 9 years old and has always worked very well for me. Now all of a sudden the print quality has got very poor, very quickly. The first I noticed was...


Hi,
Try cleaning the print heads with rubbing alcohol to remove any dry ink, also clean the rollers too.
If the unit has a reset button or option i suggest you try that.



Good luck.

Printer Always Indicates Ink is Low or Cartridge is Incorrect


To get rid of the low ink warnings google the specific error message with 'ink refill' and look for 'engineers reset' or similar ..

NB. Dell printers (re-badged Lexmarks) are notorious for ink usage and high costs .. so my best recommendation would be to throw it away and purchase something else ..

My MFC-210C cannot not print black


Hi ssly96

It is possible that your colour cartridge (that also has black ink in it) is low on same. Have you tried to print with the printer setting to grey scale or black only. This should fix the problem. If it does not, then please get back to me here and I will look into it further.

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.
