Are these refilled cartiridges?

Probably are so you gonna need to get a chip programmer to basically confuse the system that the ink is full, This does ruin the print head over time that is the reason why they want you to spend money on the real thing. If these are orginal cartridges then the print head is the issue and will need to be replaced.

Ho do i know which ink cartridge is low


Hi
the easiest way is to send a print job to printer. If any cartridge is empty, the printer should refuse to print and display an error message. This should indicate which cartridge is empty/not recognised - with a red X above the empty colour. Another way is to go to 'printer properties' then 'maintenance' page and click on 'Status monitor' button.
Hope this helps & good luck with it.

I changed ink cartriges and it won't let me print it says ink is empty. How do you reset the ink levels?


There is no reset for ink levels. When you open the cover do the cartridge lights flash indicating the cartridge is empty. This problem can arise from using compatable cartridges. Try a set of genuine cartridges and the problem will probably be solved.

Cannot recgonize ink cartridge using Espon Stylus NX400


Did you use Epson Genuine Cartridges?

These printers have a CHIP that will detect if it is Generic or Genuine. When they see it’s Generic Cartridges, it will print lines thru the words, stripes across the picture and also do a mix match with the colors. It also will not let you print anything, if only one of the cartridges is empty.

I wanted to print only Black, and would not let me, because I did not have any ink in one of my cyan cartridges. Go figure.

That's what these Companies do., so they can keep selling the ink cartridges. Some Printers, are able to use Generic, and some are refillable. Some you can refill them up yourself and I heard, quite MESSY.

So I learned, thru trial and error, that you must use the ORIGINAL Genuine Cartridges for these PRINTERS. Some people say some models work fine compatible, but not mine.......

I had to replace the printer, but Epson, Lexmark & Brothers are always on sale. My Brother & Epson cost me $50.00 with Rebate. .


IF YOU ARE USING GENERIC CARTRIDGES, MAYBE IT WOULD BE BETTER IF YOU DISABLE THE INK MONITOR.

This is the only advice I can give you. Try the excellent forum below with your similar problems.


The next step would be to disassemble the Epson, and clean the Pads/Heads. Click on link below.:

ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine Epson Cartridges. !!!!!!!!
That sounds like your problem.

In Purchasing Epson's CX 5400, CX4600, & CX7400 and more, I found out that Epson does not like Generic Printer Cartridges. I also Purchased a Brother. That also does not like Generic Print Cartridges. Color that should be Yellow, will turn out Green, Blue Brown, etc.

These printers have a CHIP that will detect if it is Generic or Genuine. When they see it’s Generic Cartridges, it will print lines thru the words, stripes across the picture and also do a mix match with the colors. It also will not let you print anything, if only one of the cartridges is empty.

Printer saying refilled bci3e is empty, when it is actually full


This is a very common issue with refilled ink cartridges. The fact is that you have a MP730. The cartridges have an eprom chip loaded into the cartridge which blows once the cartridge is empty. Refilling it as a general rule does not work. The best and only solution to your problem is to pop out to your stationery supplier and purchase a genuine canon cartridge.
As a side not, the ink inside the cartridge is covered by a patent held by canon. it means that no other supplier can use this particular grade of ink. The use on non genuine ink will destroy your printhead and make future use of your unit much less than its normal life expectancy.
