Printer estimates how much ink is left in the cartridge and there is no way it can know excact amount of ink. You should install another another one.

I recently refilled the black ink cartridge but it keeps registering that ink is low when I know it isn't. What should I do?


Some printers are designed to reject refilled cartridges, since self-refilled tanks "cheat" the printer manufacturer out of the obscene price they charge for refills. If your printer keeps working even when the message comes up, ignore it and keep on printing! If your printer stops printing, you may need to get a little tool -- usually available where you purchase your bulk ink -- that overrides or resets the cartridge so the printer thinks it's new.

My HP photosmart 7510 does not recognize the presence of any color cartridges. I use only HP 564 cartridges. It prints only black. What can I do with it?


Check this link for ink cartridge problems. The part on "older generation cartridges" is very interesting. It is located on page 39 of the manual (page 40 of the pdf).

Ink cartridge light keeps blinking


you need to print only in black if that is all the ink you have, and also you need to remove the color cartridge as it still registers in the printer as able to be used, although it is empty or near so. Did you remove the tape over the print head fron the new ink cartridge? Do a print head alignment, or use the toolbox icon to tell the printer that you just replaced the cartridge. Some HP models chip the ink cartridges so even a refill wont register as a full tank and the printer wont print. chip needs to be reset (difficult) or just replaced with a new cartridge.

New Ink cartridges registering as empty ...


Is it an HP printer? We had the same problem at work with print cartridges purchased at Staples. They have a major quality control problem. Your new print cartridge may be empty or dried out (died on the shelf). It's my problem at work, as I have over 80 HP deskjets, and Purchasing still insists on buying the Staples cartridges rather than the HP.

Sometimes if you shake a print cartridge really hard it may correct the problem. However, I would buy or borrow a black HP print cartridge and try it out in your printer. Works almost every time on the job. Good luck.
