Refilling HP color printer ink cartridges saves money and time spent running to the store to find the right ink cartridge, which sometimes is out of stock. By having the refill kits for the HP ink cartridge, you can just refill the cartridge when the ink runs out. The refilling process is easy to do and anyone can do it in a few minutes. The ink kits come with directions and all the colors one will need to refill the ink cartridge.
1.Place a piece of paper towel on a flat surface. Remove the empty ink cartridge from the printer. To do this, open the cover and wait for the ink dispenser to move the ink to the open door. Lift up the tap that holds the ink cartridge in place and pull out the cartridge. Push the tap holder back down and close the cover. 2.Place the ink cartridge on the paper towel. Gather the ink refilling kit together with directions and place the ink jars on the paper towel along with the syringe needle. 3.Find the indents on the top of the empty ink cartridge. Poke these holes open with the pen. Sit the cartridge down and open the ink containers. The colors are yellow, cyan and magenta. 4.Read the directions to see where each color goes in the ink cartridge. Insert the syringe needle into the ink container and raise the stopper up until you have the recommended amount of ink to fill into the particular hole. 5.Insert the needle into the hole on the ink cartridge and slowly dispense it into the cartridge. Remember to go slow with this step. If you see the ink oozing out, stop filling and wipe with a paper towel. 6.Cover the holes with the tabs that come in the refill kit or you can use tape. Make sure the hole is sealed to prevent spilling or the ink drying up. Then replace the ink cartridge back into the holder in the printer.
I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya.
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
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.....
Try find another printer(same model- says printer B)...take printer head from printer B to your printer(says printer A),use your ink cartridge and test your printing....if all color seen on paper, then the problem is your printer head, to make sure is it true or not, use printer head from printer A into printer B.see the result...
The ink your purchased is likely a cheap watered down version of what your printer is meant to take. You may notice that the ink smears when you rub the page directly after printing. Why you chose to use the blue and red ink to make black blows my mind. These refill kits are insanely cheap and buying the black could not have been much more. Not using black ink in the black cartridge would explain why your print is faded. Also, there is no way to reset the ink levels on this type of cartridge. As long as the printer still prints, just ignore the ink level indicator and print until the ink runs dry. I recommend Cartridge World for ink refills because they use high quality ink to manufacturer specified volumes while still saving you money.

Scroll down to Specifications and click on the Instruction Video link for each. That should help some.
Do check the option and make sure that you have not inadvertently set it to black only- This could be computer wise or on the A940 panel.
If you are sure all is well here
Remove the scanner software and reinstall.
