Canon ip2700 after refill of Black cartridge ink status still shows 'low' and print is very poor - breaks, incomplete - as ink running out. How to reset ink level, or to disable warning, and to get print...

For your ip2700, even if you reset your refilled cartridge, they are not going to be usable.
After 4~5 times of color refill, you will see e5 error that cartridge is not readable anymore.

So you need to replace your cartridge with new one somehow.

If you would like to save money, try refill kit by "ROADINK".
Not only they are easy, but also the printing quality is good.
For your better understanding pls check out my youtube video.
And will see how easy ink refill can be done.

Printer has Half way Full ink but dosent use

These are the symptoms of a poor quality ink. If you have run the deep cleaning and alignment for the ink cartridges, I would replace the cartridges with OEM ink cartridges to clear the problem. Aftermarket inks are sometime not up to manufacturer specifications.
Try cartridges from LD Products. I've not had problems with their inks on my 5 different Canon printers.

Poor print quality when cartridge replaced

Sometimes you need to perfom 1 or 2 head clenaings to prime the printer with the new ink.

The cleaning will clean your heads and refill the ink.
