If you are able to produce a self test print, this is good since it illustrates that the cartridges are electrically stable...if you observe any 'E' or 'V' error states (i.e. "E xx" or "V162" for example), this may indicate there is possibly an internal electrical problem with one of the ink cartridges. Refer to your user guide if E/V error messages are displayed.
If, after following the suggested ink monitoring/level reset procedures, you still have an error condition which prohibits regular printing, then the ink cartridge probably has internal electrical damage (micro-electronics failure); such a failure is unrelated to the ink cartridge refilling process. Typically, when the cartridge fails the problem is 'masked' by the ink out/empty condition so it can be difficult to distinguish between the two. Many cartridges eventually do encounter problems or failures, especially after their original ink is gone and they are re-used, and this is often unrelated to the refill process (i.e. typically ~2 years from original manufacturing date). Refer to picture at bottom of this page: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1533
If, following a reset of the printer via the 'Stop/Resume' button, printing is permitted but the 'Ink Low' indicator continues to be lit then one of the inks cartridges may be suffering from marginal internal electrical performance - a potential failure of the cartridge may eventually occur which will prevent printing.
However, if your printer works routinely after inserting a brand new PGI-40 black ink cartridge in it, then this will confirm root cause of failure as being limited to the ink cartridge iteslf.
CAUTION: Be advised, the use of compatible/clone cartridges (i.e. sold thru the internet from overseas) are known to be problematic and may cause printer errors and/or permanent PRINTHEAD failures. We do NOT suggest refilling these types of ink cartridges.....refilling of Canon original/genuine ink cartridges is only suggested!
If you ever need to purchase a new ink cartridge(s) and are trying to cut costs, we suggest you try a remanufactured ink cartridge from http://www.inkplicity.com/ as their ink cartridges typically have the lowest cost in the USA, have a high reliability rating, come with a 1-year warranty and provide free shipping for all orders above $20 (these are remanufactured ink cartridges which have been pre-tested in an actual printer; purchases are only available to USA residents).

Hi there Dell Printer 944 error message 1102 Please unplug the printer from the wall. Now remove the power brick from the back of the printer for 60 seconds. Now plug everything back in. This will reset any error messages the printer has. Now open the printer with the power on and the cartridges should go to the center to be replaced. Take out both Dell Series 5 ink cartridges and make sure the tape is off the cartridges and insert both back in and make sure the seat properly and latch. Close the printer and it should print an alignment page. If you still get the error message Why does my Dell ink cartridge level still show up as "low ink" after refilling them? 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 message. Dell discourages ink refills. Refilling ink may lead to print quality problems, and even eventual hardware problems. This post is in no way a validation of refilling ink cartridges. Why my printer is reporting “low ink" after using refilled/remanufactured ink cartridges? Most ink cartridges have sensors that report the ink level.The “Low Ink” is usually the last sensor (fuse) before running out of ink. Since the sensors are fuses that open when the ink level drops, they cannot be reset.If you are using refill or remanufactured ink cartridges, the best thing to do is to disable “ink alerts” on the printer’s software so you don’t keep getting “low ink” messages. To disable “Ink Alerts” on Dell inkjet printers: 1.Open the Dell printer software (All-In One Center, Tool Box, etc) 2.Go to Settings 3.Advanced 4.More Options 5.In the “Appearance Mode, window, check “Never display the Printing Status window” and “Display the low ink alert only when the cartridges are almost empty. Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

error code 1102 Hi there Your error message is coming from the Dell Series 5 ink Cartridge. To reset the error message, unplug the printer from the wall. Now remove the power brick from the back of the printer. Wait 60 seconds and then plug everything back in. This usually resets any error messages on the printer. Make sure the Dell Series 5 ink cartridges are intalled correctly by removing them and re-seating them . Black in left or black side, color in right side or color side If using a photo cartridge... Photo cartridge in the black side(left) and color in the color side(right) Dell Series 5 ink cartridges have a sensor in them that cannot be reset It is also possible to get a new ink cartridge with a bad sensor. Please take it to the place of purchase for a refund or a replacement one. Please all I ask is call back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one, so I will keep on helping.

This is a printer cartridge hardware error. The solution is to remove the ink cartridges and clean the gold contacts and the ink ports of excess ink with a damp cloth or paper towel. Be sure not to leave any scraps of paper on them when you reinstall them in the printer. This often comes up after installing new cartridges or refilling them. When you have them refilled it ios good idea to let them sit overnight be fore using them.
“Lexmark does not support the refilling of its ink cartridges. Refilling the ink cartridges can cause them to leak, thus clogging or even damaging the print head. Any damage to your printer caused by refilled ink cartridges may not be covered under warranty”. Please use genuine Lexmark cartridges for best results.
If you get errors after refilling and then you clear the error!
And you still get errors occuring then this is a problem with the
1)The cartridges printhead may have burned out if it was run dry. (new cartridge is required)
2) No ink is coming out of the port hole! Try dabbing the bottom of the
cartridge on tissue. Ink should appear if not then use tissue with
Isopropyl alcohol and blot lightly until ink apppears.
3) If not ink appears then you may have an air bubble blocking the flow
of the ink. wrap cartridge tightly in plastic wrap holing in an up
right position whip downwards this will force air to the top of the
cartridge and open the port on the bottom. Remove wrap and try it out.
4) If the cartridge sat empty for a period of time before refilling you
are wasting your time. The ink is probably sitting at the top of the
cartridge and can not migrate to the bottom, in this case it may have
In refilling of Lexmark cartridges:
Refill often and do not allow them to run dry. Running them while there
is not ink in the cartridge burns the print head out and the cartridge
will not work and you will get an error.
By refilling often the cartridge stays in good condition, you do not
run out of ink during a print job, and the cartridge will have a
prolonged life span.
Refilled ink cartridges differ considerably in quality and behavior. The printer is designed to work with Lexmark cartridges and any other cartridge is going to pose some risks and they certainly will not communicate the fill level accurately.
Error 1102 means cart error. Try cleaning the copper contacts on the cart and the contacts in the printer also. If still fails, then put old carts and check if u still get same error. If u dont get the error then there is a problem with the cart itself. But if you have bought a refilled cart then the print heads on the carts are bad. Needs replacement.
