SOURCE: Screen reads "Near empty Cyan" but I just replaced the Cyan ink cartridge, its full.

If the firmware update doesn't work, you can reset this error.

Unplug unit. Remove offending cartridge. Plug unit back in, wait until all startup noises have stopped. Open lid and reinstall cartridge. This will solve the fault as long as the sensor is working.

Also, please be aware, you should not have to change a cartridge if it says "Near Empty", only if it says "Ink Empty Magenta".

Also, please make sure none of your other cartridges are empty. I have seen this over and over. Two cartridges empty at the same time, and the person replaces one of them but thinks they actually replaced the other one.

Turn the power off and pull all the cartridges out. Look a the side of the cartridge, you should see a window with a little plastic tab sticking out. This tab should be blocked by a black float inside the cartridge. If you cannot see the float, and the tab is clear with no ink in it and no float tab blocking it, it means the cartridge is empty even if you still see some ink in the bottom.

To be sure plug the machine in without any cartridges. When all the noises have stopped, open the lid and install the cartridges. If you're still getting an error saying either a cartridge is not installed or is empty, then one of your cartridges is empty. Redo the previous paragraph.

SOURCE: Brother MFC 5840CNZ displays Ink Empty on CYAN when new cartridge is installed

Put a piece of masking tape on the sides of the little window on the cartridge. That will make the machine think all cartridges are full all the time.

SOURCE: Xerox Phaser 8560dn says it is out of Cyan ink, but it is not.

The inksticks are probably jammed in the slot. If you're using non-Xerox ink, an error reset is required. Since the non-Xerox ink sticks are not the right shape (since the shape is a registered trademark), they don't always trip the sensors when they come down the chute.

How use epson l800 for sublimation ink


Hi.

There are things that you need to understand when using third party inks on CISS Ready Printers. Epson L800 is built to use inks manufactured by Epson and therefore using other inks than specified will automatically void the manufacturer's warranty on the device.

Sublimation Inks are heat sensitive inks but it can be used to most of the Epson Printers on the market. If your L800 is already running using Dye Inks now, you may need to "flush" the Tanks, Tubes and Print Nozzles to avoid ink clogging. Mixing different types of ink is the most common mistake resulting to printhead clogging and by not flushing, you may as well encounter this. If you can buy a new CISS Tanks and cartridges fitted to L800, you may also want to do so to make flushing easier. You only need to flush the nozzles if you replace the CISS Kit.

Flush using a Syringe with the tube on the part where the needle is supposed to be placed. To flush the nozzle, press the "ink" button on the printer. As the cartridges move to the center, pull the power plug to shut down the device. Remove all the cartridges to expose the nozzles. Move the cartridge holder a to the right enough not to lock it in its terminal. Put a paper towel in the base of the printer and move back the cartridge holder placing it on top of the paper towel.

Fill your syringe with cleaning solution and securely attach the other end of the tube to the nozzle. MAKE SURE YOU DO NOT SPILL cleaning solution to any circuitry in the cartridge holder. Squeeze the syringe slowly to flush out the remaining inks on the printhead. 3 to 5 ml would do the flushing. Repeat the flushing to all of the nozzles. Again, be careful with the circuits.

After flushing, remove the paper towel and clean up the base of the printer.

Load your new (or flushed) CISS Kit into position.

After installation, it is necessary to conduct initial setup to rerun the ink from Tanks to tubes to cartridges and to printhead. After initial setup, a nozzle check and cleaning would also refine the quality of the print.

If you ever encounter ink-clogging on your nozzles again, the flushing will also help you do the trick unless your printhead already ran out.

I hope this helps.

Chow!

Error msg says indepdnt.ink set and my yellow is full but shows empty. I am using sublimation cartridges, refillable. other 3 colors are fine


it sound like a faulty chip on the cartridge, you could try cleaning the contacts on both the cartridge and the printer to see if that helps but personally I think it will be the chip. new cartridge or chip im afraid. I could have helped you more if you had included in your question the make of printer etc.

I just purchased the Ricoh GX7000 for sublimation. Unfortunately, my son set up the printer and did not realize the inks that come with it are not to be installed. He did. I have not printed anything, but...


I would call your vendor. Or if you bought the sawgrass technologies ink, give tech support a call and have them help you download the necessary ICC profile for your printer. Often they can walk you through setup. You will need to delete the current one you son installed.

I replaced an ink cartridge because the printer stopped working and showed a message that the old cartridge is empty. However after putting the new one in but the printer still refuses to work and shows...


maybe the cartridge is wrong, release it and clean the electrical contacts, put them again one by one, if notting happen, try this
Solution As the printer operates, it moves ink from the ink cartridges into a printhead reservoir. The printer does not deliver a message when an ink cartridge goes empty, because it still has ink in the reservoir. The printer continues printing until the ink level in the reservoir falls to a first trigger point - then a message appears advising the printer owner to Replace Cartridges Soon . At this point, other cartridges that are empty but have not reached the trigger point are also mentioned in the message, to save trips to the retailer. After the first trigger point, the printer can continue printing until ink levels in the reservoir reach a second trigger point. At the second trigger point there is only enough ink left to perform vital servicing tasks, and a new message appears, saying Ink Cartridges Empty . The options offered depend on the usable inks remaining. If no options are offered, the cartridges indicated must be replaced before printing can continue. The Ink Cartridges Empty options are described in the table below: Ink colors out Option Print mode possible All Cancel None Black

AND

Cyan, Magenta, or Yellow (any or all) Black only Continue with other colors Cyan/Magenta/Yellow mode (composite black)

Text and photo quality will differ from those printed when all colors are available Light Cyan or Light Magenta (either or both) Cyan, Magenta, or Yellow (any or all)

(Black still available) Print with black ink only Grayscale

Black ink


The PGBK cartridge is a pigment black ink, while the others use a dye for coloration. The pigment black is used when printing text and other documents. The dye ink is used when printing photos and other colored documents. The dye black is used in conjunction with the color (dye) inks to provide tinting and color gradation, and therefore is not used nearly as much as the pigment black unless you use your printer only for printing photos.

If you're printing text and documents, you will need to buy another pigment black (PGBK) cartridge.

Problem using sublimation inks


Since you are using sublmation ink, the cartridges are probably aftermarket and may not meet Epson standards. Aftermarket chipped cartridges are notorious for failing to 'communicate' with Epson printers, even when the cartridge is brand new. Before taking the printer to a service center, you might try purchasing new cartridges of your ink from your reseller. If that fixes the problem then your fight is with the ink reseller, not Epson. If it doesn't fix the problem and your printer is still under warranty, take it to an authorized service center, and remember, using non-Epson ink does NOT void the waranty.
