I got a refill on my original ink cartridge from Walgreens but when I try to print it still shows the message that my cartridge is low in ink. It's very frustrating! If Walgreens has the ink for my particular Dell ink jet model J5566 then why doesn't it work on my printer?

Re: Problem with Dell ink jet refill....
Hi , The dell printers will not identify a refilled cartridge,but still you can print . i think u have refilled the standard color cartridge and you have the dell 924 printer. regarding the software , the dell printers have an inbuilt software which will automatically detect a new cartridge( not a refilled one). But if you want to do it from the computer you can try this.
click on start-------> All programs--------->dell printers------> Dell AIO 924 printer--------> Dell All in one center.
once you click on All in one center , you will find a page coming up on the screen , and on the top center of the page you will get an option called " Maintenance /Troubleshoot " click on that and then you will get an option " install New Cartridges" click on that and then install the refilled cartridge.

level indicator cannot be manually re-set in the newer HP, Lexmark or Dell integrated ink cartridges, thus making
it not usable. The OEMs all leverage 'fusible links' in the nozzle plate (internal to base of ink
cartridge) which physically blows the resistors as the original ink is consumed...thus
resetting the ink cartridge's ink level monitoring capability is simply not
possible. The ink tracking feature is only available with a brand new ink
However, losing this feature is not necessarily
significant, because the ink level indicator usually has 20%-30% ink remaining
when it shows "low on ink".
Therefore, the warning has limited value, because customers who
prematurely replace their cartridges when they see the "low ink"
message are wasting a lot of residual ink.

Original Printer manufacturers do not recommend refilling in cartridges.
Different inks used in different cartridges differ in density, color, acidity etc. Usually refilling ink is made as universal ink. i.e. They produce the ink for 'any printer'.
The differences in the original and refiling inks might lead to the printer not recognizing the ink level.
Either buy a new cartridge or just ignore the messages.
By using refilled cartridges you will always have this problem. Each cartridge has a chip that lets the printer know when it is full or empty. By pressing the ok button you may be able to clear this message. However, most of the time you can still be able to print and ignore the message.
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.

Hello! 28 and 29 are not meant to be refilled. They can physically be refilled, but they won't work. That is because Lexmark has put in a smart chip that doesn't allow refill. You need to buy 28A and 29A or 34 and 35, those cartridges can be refilled with no problem.
If you find my answer helpful, please vote. Thank you!
The simple solution is to buy the HP cartridges. Often times,.. MOST times, aftermarket ink cartridges and refill kits are an inferior product. The difference is not always noticeable right away, but almost always rears it's head in the end. This is usually due to the ink being of a different viscosity than the original ink. Which leads to sloppy prints, sensor errors, leaky or dead jets.
Personally I recommend everyone buy Laser printers. With prices where they are these days, there is no reason for anyone to buy an inkjet printer. Lasers will cost more up front, but are much cheaper per page and generally longer lasting.
Usually, that message means that your cartridge is dead. Try removing it, clean the electric contacts on it and the ones on the cartridge carrier. Put it back in. If that doesn't help, you will need to buy a new color cartridge.
If you do not have a replacement
cartridge, you can still print in, what HP calls "ink backup mode". Simply remove the
problem cartridge, and print with the remaining one, in this case, the black one.
If you remove the tri-color cartridge, printouts will be in grayscale.
Sometimes the color bleeds over. Did you wipe down the contacts and clean the heads? Also, most of the cartridges have low ink sensors in the. Even if you have them refilled, they will still show as low ink. The only solution is to buy the new ones.... $$$$$$.
