When installing refill cartridges the ink level still shows empty on the computer ink level status manager. I tried to unplug the printer for a couple of minutes after installing the refill cartridges but to no avail. What can I do to fix this? The printer does print with these cartridges but the quality on the ink printing looks to be not all that good.

Re: Reset ink level on CANON MP 140 PIXMA PRINTER
How to reset the Canon MP150 after a refill (Step 10 concerns refill; instructions below the steps): Method1 (Safe Factory Method):
1) Disconnect the printer’s power outlet
2) Press and hold the power button while connecting the power outlet back. 3) While still holding down the power button, press the reset button twice.(red circle with a triangle)
4) Release the power button
The printer takes about 10 seconds to show the number 0.
5) Press + to change the value from 0 to 1. 6) When this value is 1, press colour button; this will light up two leds.
One is for plain paper and the other for photo paper. At this point is feed the printer with paper. 7) Press the power button twice and the printer will print a some stuff (if it doesn't print by itself, then press the "color" button once and the test sheet will print). Don’t worry much about the printed material. I got some stripped lines and some numbers. I believe that my colour cartridge is clogged which is why I got the green strips.
When you print this sheet the value in the display returns to zero. 8 ) Open the printer cover cover (not the scanner cover) and remove the cartridges. With the printer still open, disconnect the power outlet. 9) Close the lid and turn on the printer. 10) Refill cartridges and place them back in their nice little abode in the printer.
Refilled cartridges are monitored as used cartridges .the mp 140 such as all printers ,accept inks oem like a serial number. when you place the ink back in though it maybe refilled,the chip inside the printer,remembers that this cartridge has been used already,no matter if its empty or not. the only thing you can do to solve this problem is deactivating the monitored levels of ink,by pressing and holding cancel button for about 15 seconds or so
All you have to do is reset your printer after a recharge. To do this just hold the red button after you start your printer somth like 10-15 sec. The printer will show you thet yoour ink level is low but will work fine
My printer canon mp140 only cost me £40.00 it looks like i am going to have to spend the same amount again on ink any ideas on doing it cheaper as i have 4 kids who love using my printer for homework sheets etc many thanks diane
Just press & hold the RESET button for 10 seconds after the power led is stable ON (not blinking).
1. Power on the Printer.
2. Wait till the PWR led is STABLE GREEN (not blinking)
3. Press & hold the RESET button for 10 seconds.
4. You should see number 1 in the display.
5. You can proceed with the scanner now. Issue is solved.

You cannot refill ink cartridges anymore. There is a computer chip in the ink cartridge and when it goes empty, it stays empty forever. The printer companies were losing money when you refilled the ink yourself, so they installed a computer chip to stop customers from doing it.
Don't use refill kits, they are no good in quality printers. Also the cartridges in the newer models have a chip in them that knows when the cartridge is empty. When it becomes empty, the chip has to be reset, and this is what those mall cartridge fillers do.

The ink may have run out.
The function for detecting the remaining ink level will be disabled since the ink level cannot be correctly detected.
If you want to continue printing without this function, press the machine's Stop (Reset) button for at least 5 seconds.
Canon recommends to use new genuine Canon cartridges in order to obtain optimum qualities.
Please be advised that Canon shall not be liable for any malfunction or trouble caused by continuation of printing under the ink out condition.
Checking the Ink Status
Checking the Ink Status with the Ink Lamps on the Operation Panel
The ink level detector is mounted on the machine to detect the remaining ink level. The machine considers as ink is full when a new FINE cartridge is installed, and then starts to detect a remaining ink level. If you install a used FINE cartridge, the indicated ink level of it may not be correct. In such case, refer to the ink level information only as a guide.
When remaining ink cautions or errors occur, the error code will be displayed on the LED (Light Emitting Diode) to inform you of the error. Check the error code and take appropriate action.
-> [ An Error Code Is Displayed on the LED ]
See[Checking the Ink Status ]
All Epson printers (well, the ink ones) have a small utility built-in called the STATUS MONITOR. If you click on the MAINTENANCE tabbed page in the Properties, you can start this just by clicking on the item. It will show the ink levels. Normally, this status monitor should start up whenever you print - with an option to show the ink levels, as they do not auto appear when printing, compared to the option shown above. Note that the monitor does NOT actually shown the real ink levels as the chips on the cartridges and the internal electronics within the printer simply work on the number of prints made - so often when showing empty - there will in fact be ink left unused inside the cartridges. For this reason alone, worth your while getting some refillable cartridges and bulk ink (normally in 100ml bottles - so you would get equivalent about 10+ refills and save lots of hard earned dosh!) but you would also need an inexpensive chip resetter. My advice is get the refillables with ink (most compatible inks are as good as - some better - than Epson's own expensive original cartridge inks) and when one cartridge shows requires replacing, you remove all the cartridges, fill them all, reset the chips and replace - that way you show all as full and on ly have one cleaning cycle - thus also saving lots of ink normally wasted when replacing one cartridge - each requiring a cleaning cycle and loss of other inks. I have no idea where in the World you live so cannot recommend a supplier - just use ebay.com or amazon.com to find suitable suppliers convenient to yourself.
Might be cartridges are refilled. You may got doubt why its not measuring the ink levels?. When printer found new catridge(printer/system based on design) will treats that new cartridge installed & estimated level will display fully.After couple of print outs printer/system will displays estimated ink levels depend upon the ink usage. But there is no mechanical ink level sensors or any other device for mesuaring the levels..Once the ink level trated empty you need to replace new cartridge straight away,if you refilled the same catridge it wont measure the levels, because of the cartridge data code already stored in printer. ..
Hi there Dell Printer 944 error message 1102 Please unplug the printer from the wall. Now remove the power brick from the back of the printer for 60 seconds. Now plug everything back in. This will reset any error messages the printer has. Now open the printer with the power on and the cartridges should go to the center to be replaced. Take out both Dell Series 5 ink cartridges and make sure the tape is off the cartridges and insert both back in and make sure the seat properly and latch. Close the printer and it should print an alignment page. If you still get the error message Why does my Dell ink cartridge level still show up as "low ink" after refilling them? 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. This post is in no way a validation of refilling ink cartridges. Why my printer is reporting “low ink" after using refilled/remanufactured ink cartridges? Most ink cartridges have sensors that report the ink level.The “Low Ink” is usually the last sensor (fuse) before running out of ink. Since the sensors are fuses that open when the ink level drops, they cannot be reset.If you are using refill or remanufactured ink cartridges, the best thing to do is to disable “ink alerts” on the printer’s software so you don’t keep getting “low ink” messages. To disable “Ink Alerts” on Dell inkjet printers: 1.Open the Dell printer software (All-In One Center, Tool Box, etc) 2.Go to Settings 3.Advanced 4.More Options 5.In the “Appearance Mode, window, check “Never display the Printing Status window” and “Display the low ink alert only when the cartridges are almost empty. Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

The ink level gauge may not work properly with refilled cartridges. Because of this, you might get low ink message after refilling. To install the refilled cartridge you might need to override the ink level gauge. Overriding the ink level gauge disables the printer’s ink level tracking feature, but allows you to use refilled cartridges. To override the ink level gauge, please check your printer reference guide. After disabling the ink level tracking feature you should check the ink level visually and as soon as the ink level gets low you need to refill the cartridge. You do not want to try to print with an empty cartridge. Trying to print with an empty cartridge may damage your print-heads.
otherwise you will have to replace the cartridge .
Above link great.
If you have a newer print cartridge cart, look for the little window. I put a sticker over the little window on the Brother (innobella) LC38 cartridge cart and it worked great :)
Despite finding a fix for this problem, I think this is a rip off setting on the brother printers and I will never buy another Brother printer for this reason.
After hours of reading about this I finally found the solution. This will NOT reset your levels but you will be able to print without being told you have empty levels.
Start, Control Panel, then Printers and Faxes.
On the next screen, Right click on your printer then on Printing Preferences. Now select the Advanced tab.
Near the bottom left, you will see more options. Click that and then Appearance. Check NEVER display printing status and make sure under Complete-A-Print, all is unchecked. Click OK at the bottom.
You can print without the stupid messages coming up. Dells printer ink cartridges have a computer chip in them and the refurbished ink does not which causes these error messages telling you your ink cartridges are empty.
