With this type of cartridge your printer will always think refills have low ink. This is because the electronics on the cartridge cannot be reset to tell the printer it is full of ink. However you should still be able to print and just ignore the ink levels. I think the problem you are having is that the electronics on your cartridge are no longer functioning. Unfortunately there is no way to fix this problem. I know you can buy refills from Cartridge World stores, but I don't know about other retailers.
The ink your purchased is likely a cheap watered down version of what your printer is meant to take. You may notice that the ink smears when you rub the page directly after printing. Why you chose to use the blue and red ink to make black blows my mind. These refill kits are insanely cheap and buying the black could not have been much more. Not using black ink in the black cartridge would explain why your print is faded. Also, there is no way to reset the ink levels on this type of cartridge. As long as the printer still prints, just ignore the ink level indicator and print until the ink runs dry. I recommend Cartridge World for ink refills because they use high quality ink to manufacturer specified volumes while still saving you money.
I don't have a Dell but we have Lexmarks which use similar cartridges. I'm guessing your color and black has a flat top. Your printer should be using a 2 cartridge system and most likely w/ 4 colors. Black, Cyan, Magenta and Yellow. The Black cartridge is a single color cartridge. The CMY (short for Cyan,Magenta,Yellow) is in another cartridge. If you don't know which one, get a paper tower and dab the bottom of the cartridge near the nozzles which are usual silver in color. If you have the color you now need a very thin needle to fit those very small holes. If your needle wont fit then you will have to enlarge the holes. To refill,you really will enlarge it anyway to inject the syringe needles in. Stick the needle into the hole as deep as you can and stop just before you hit bottom. Just approximate the height of the cartridge to the needle. When you take the needle out, use a paper towel or toilet paper to wipe off the ink. What you wipe off will be the color of that chamber. You just need to do one more on any of the 2 remaining holes. Label as you go so you know what color it is. Don't do mental gymnastics. One mistake means you either print w/wrong colors or buy a new cartridge. I'm not familiar w/ the cartridge so I'm guessing on the color you should put between 1-2ml of ink per color. On the black maybe 5-8ml. This is to be on the safe side. Don't overfill it. There's no guarantee your cartridge will print, cuz manual refills are not as good as those done on a machine. If it works you may be able to refill another 2-3 times. Manual refilling is a gamble. Just ink the ink in very slowly and be patient. take about 15-20 seconds to inject 1 ml. Hope this helps.
Use only genuine cartridges with your printer. Printers these days have a built in sensor that can sense non compatible/generic/refilled cartridges and wont install them. It will only cause you more problems in the long run if you use a generic cartridges.
