Machine won't print. It states the magenta ink carteridge is too low therefore it can't print BW. Carteridge is 2 weeks old and I only print in BW. Installed new magenta carteridge and it still says ink too low to print. It appears to be stuck in this loop because it can't do any function at all now, not even send out a fax.

new info chip required for cartridge.
3rd party inks WILL cost more ( if you include the damage they cause) in the long run - known FACT.
strongly recommend you revert back to HP inks as soon as possible.
Unfortunately, if the correct Dell cartridges are in place and fully seated, the cartridge missing message indicates that the sensor in the printer isn't correctly recognizing the cartridges. If you have used non-Dell cartridges or refilled cartridges, try new Dell cartridges and check for signs of ink leaking in the system. Some printers have a removable print head that can be cleaned or replaced. I'm not sure about this printer.
The waste ink collector pads are getting full and this is a protection indicator. Either get the machine serviced or it may be cheaper to replace it-[depending where you live] There are tricks to keep the machine going- but eventually the you will get ink leaking all over the place.

This is Maltesecross. Turns out that the faintness of my printed pages was in fact due to a low ink cartridge, even though some pages printed out fine and others half-good. Eventually, all pages turned faint, and upon re-installing the driver, I got a low-ink warning (the first one ever). Putting in a new ink cartridge solved the problem for me.
