Try another cartridge if it works properly then the refilled cartridge has problem or the problem is with the printer.ask that ink refill company to test and give you one more cartridge of same number to check in your printer.also try to clean the brown dotted circuit in your printer and cartridge both with moist tissue before doing everything.

Costco inkjet refill


I would suggest getting name brand ink and try that out. We tried several refills from different companies and always had problems. If you just opened the cartridge from Costco they would most likely take it back.
As a test, try both Printing and making a Copy and see if you get the same problem.

Refilled black ink cartrige and i can't get it to print at all. done more deep cleans than i want to remember, still will not print. done nozzle clean also. i have refilled this cartrige several times...


You may need a newer cartridge
See if the printhead has any abnomal markings.
You can compare it with the color printhead.
If the printhead is good, see if the ink is flowing through the printhead.
Fill the ink cartridge to maximum
Squeeze the sides of the ink cartridge, ink should flow out.
If ink is flowing out, remove any excessive ink with a paper towel.
Install ink cartridges, do NOT do any cleaning cycle.
Since your black cartridge is full, cleaning may cause it not to print.
Do some black copy operations.

Im trying to print a document but, its very light in color any solutions to make it darker..?


since you don't state the model of your printer, then take this some steps. first try to find if there is a tone function button in your printer, if you found try to increase adjust the tone, second, try to edit the text color to black, third, try to remove the ink cartridge and clean the contact surface of both ink cartridge and the printer, fourth, use genuine ink cartridge avoid refilling of ink cartridge.

Can i print black prints without refilling the color ink cartridges? my color cartridges are empty but the black is full. The printer wont let me print black and white files.


Not certain on that model of Brother but on mine I was able to get it to print by changing the settings in "Print Setup" If you change these so that it can only print in black and whiye, it won't look for the colour cartridge, like mine didn't

Printer has new ink but always states all the colors & blaack are almost empty. How do I get it to reset to full and print again?


Run the software that was installed from the CD-ROM that came with the printer. There could be a "tool" to do the "reset" (or to tell the print device-driver to re-query the printer, rather than just "estimating" how much ink would theoretically be used as each page is printed).

Note that some refilled cartridges will _always_ report as "empty"l.
The company that refilled the cartridges will tell you if they were unable
to "reset" the cartridge when they added the ink to refill it.

Using refilled printer cartridges in Canon MP500, how to reset


There is no way to reset it, you just have to watch your ink by the printing you do, Normally, black ink will last up to 500 copies or more if you put your printer properties on fast print (this is to save ink when printing from the Standard version). In Color, it may vary with the projects that you do. The way I check, when my cartridges to see if they are almost out, is to run the clean cycle under the printer utilities menu, then the printer test page. This should show you what colors, and black ink you have or dont have. When you recycle or reuse your cartridges, the metal component that is on a new cartridge for the printer to recongize the it, is removed during refill process. I dont why the companies that fill the cartridges do put it back. I wish they would it would may things alot easier. I hope this helps.

Lexmark P6250 black ink cartridge won t print


If you have thoroughly cleaned down in print cartidge area, and printhead, with no ink coming away, remove cartridge. Repeat manual clean, use a baby wipe and wipe gold head that ink comes out of as well (if your cartridge has this. Replace. Reset ink levels in main profile page of printer interafce. Try again. If no go, try turning printer off, unplugging, replugging after a while, turning on. Retry print job. Make sure no print jobs are queued up by cancellin all jobs before you try and print again. If nothing else works i would buy a new cartridge and hope you have receipt as it may be a dud. This can happen. I have had a few over the years.

Flashing ink refill light


Sometimes refilling them over and over doesn't work well. Once ok...but i suggest that you buy a new cartridge. I know that they are expensive but it will help. Also take some Rubbing alchohol and a q-tip...clean inside where the cartridge sits..that will help...this is for sure a bad ink cartridge
