Hi Joe,

Open the control panel and goto printers.

Right click on the HP printer and select properties.

In there you should find a page telling you about the state of the ink cartridges.

If you need more help the model number of the printer would be useful.

Regards

Andy

    When the ink level for the print cartridge is low, a message appears on your computer screen. You can also check the ink levels by using the software installed with the HP All-in-One.

    Please open up the HP Photosmart C4200 toolbox and click on "Estimated Ink level" tab and you will be given the amount of ink level left on each cartridge(Black and colour) with the cartridge. no.

    Goodluck..

How do I reset my Epson T200XL ink cartridges?


Resetting the Epson Ink Cartridge Chip With Software A freeware program called SSC Service Utility enables users to download and install software that helps to manage their Epson printer. The software offers several functions, one of which is resetting the ink cartridge chip. Other settings allow users to freeze the internal ink counters or to reset the internal ink counters. It supports over 100 Epson printer models, but some printers may not respond to the commands from the software.
Using a Cartridge Reset Tool A cartridge reset tool is a small plastic piece that fits against the cartridge. The contacts on the reset tool correspond to the contacts on the printer's ink cartridge. When connected to the ink cartridge, the cartridge reset tool indicates the resetting of the ink cartridge with a green LED light. The reset tool is beneficial not just for resetting the chip, but also for allowing the printer to use all of the ink in the cartridge.

Troubleshooting Issues With the Reset Tool

Buyers should be sure to check the description for each reset tool carefully to determine whether they can reset their Epson printer cartridge with the tool. If the wrong cartridge is attempted or the reset tool is simply unable to reset the cartridge, users see either a red LED light or no light at all. In some cases, they simply cannot reset the chip any further. Before disposing of a reset tool, always test it on multiple ink cartridges.

Printer Error Message


Yes, there a few items you need to consider with respect to HP 61 (or 61XL) cartridge errors messages on any HP Deskjet 1000 through 3510 printer model:
If you get an HP 61 / 61XL integrated ink cartridge refilled (i.e. currently offered at Costco or Frys today) or if you buy a remanufactured/compatible HP ink cartridge, the ink levels cannot be reset (HP has a smart chip embedded within the nozzle plate at base of ink cartridge which counts the drops and then registers as empty).....so you'll just need to live with it and ignore ink low, non-genuine, counterfeit messages and similar while you are using these types of aftermarket supplies. The first video below provides an overview of this low ink phenomena.
If the new (or refilled/reman/compatible) HP 61 / 61XL ink cartridge refuses to complete the printer alignment following cartridge installation, then the ink cartridge either has a connectivity issue with the flexible printed circuit cable (inside unit where cartridge mates with cable), rear cartridge contacts or cable contacts are dirty with ink residue, or the cartridge is suffering from marginal internal electrical performance. Ensure you press OK or Cancel up to six times to clear out the printer error log.
These types of severe cartridge errors (i.e. Incompatible cartridges, Black/Color cartridge(s) problem / Cartridge not intended for this printer, etc.) typically indicate the internal micro-electronics of the HP 61 cartridge are electrically damaged. The cartridges electrical wire runs at rear and lower side of the ink cartridge are very delicate and are somewhat susceptible to ink attack over time, which can lead to premature failures. In addition, the older the cartridge the higher the chance of an internal electrical failure due to prolonged ink exposure and subsequent circuit corrosion. I suggest you run a Tap 41 diagnostic test to check cartridges electrical health (this is a forced service test so the printer will attempt to send whether cartridges are good or not); Refer to Inkjet411 youtube videos below:

How to replace the ink cartridge


1. Look at the indicator light on your Lexmark printer. You'll need to replace ink cartridges when the light flashes or turns red instead of the standard green.


2. Purchase Lexmark ink cartridges. You can buy the brand name or purchase a generic version that is compatible with your printer. You can shop for low cost ink cartridges from ABC Ink.


3. Remove the old cartridges from your printer. Grip the sides of the Lexmark ink cartridges and pull it out. Dispose of the ink cartridges in a recycle program like the one at Staples or save the cartridges for refill.


4. Install the new ink cartridges after removing the protective tabs. Avoid touching the IC chip when installing the new Lexmark ink cartridges. Replace the cover of the printer.


5. Allow the Lexmark printer to run a nozzle test. Print several pages with the new ink cartridges to make sure you installed the ink cartridges correctly. The indicator light should return to a solid green color.

Dell a940 error code 50c


From doing my research, I have found that the 50C Error message comes from the cartridge, usually if it has been refilled. If this cartridge is new, please return it to the place of purchase for a new one or a refund.

Here's what happens when you refill the Dell Series 2 ink cartridges. There is a sensor in them that cannot be reset.

Dell ink cartridges can only be purchased at Staples, Walmart or Dell's website.

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.


if u have not refilled ur cartridge and u still get this error i suggest u buy a new cartridge.....


good luck
have a nice day

After 15 color copies voice comes on Color ink LOW, Senior Citizen


The ink cartridges shipped with a new printer are not filled to full capacity as are the ones that you purchase for replacement. Office supply stores "Staples" "Office Depot" etc can refill your cartridges for about half of the cost of a replacement cartridge, I do not reccomend refilling the same cartridge more than twice but even after the second fill you can then trade the cartridge in for a discount on a new one.
Hopefully this helps.
You can also open the printer settings and lower the print resolution for jobs that do not need full color/resolution.

Thank you for taking the time.

Installing ink cartridge


I've had this problem too. The only way to make the message go away is to buy the ink from Dell. Although generic ink cartriges will work the printer will not/can not reset the "low ink" message unless you buy the cartriges directly from Dell. So you can use another brand, but you'll just have to overide the low ink message when it pops up by telling it to continue printing. Then you can tell when the ink is low by seeing it when it prints out.

There are 2 possible problems, or the cartridge is a refilled one or some problem by the cartridge itself. Try to change the cartridge.
