Even if the ink level is low, you can continue printing.Press the paperfeed knob for 5 seconds. inklevel indicator will stop now.
Sometimes a new (or refilled) cartridge is not recognised correctly.
When one color is really mt, stop printing and replace inmideatly the colorcartridge.Printing or scanning without the 2 cartridges in place is impossible.

SOURCE: I HAVE A PINTER PIXMA 1600- WITH NEW CARTRIDGE,

A few basic causes.

1. The cartridges you bought were not original equipment ones (OEM)and many "clone" cartridges are known to have problems with the ink level chips

Take them back and get them replaced with a different brand

2. They are original cartridges but may still be faulty (rare but possible)

Take them back and get them replaced

3. Your print head is clogged or faulty

Run your printer through the head cleaning process a few times and see if it clears up.

4 your cartridges are out of alignment

run the cartridge alignment process

If you are filling them yourself then...

Cartridge ink levels are usually monitored by a small chip on the cartridge. If that cartridge is allowed to fall below 25% ink level most chips then become locked and not able to re-set.

For many cartridges you can buy a reset device to reset chips that have not become locked. Or you could buy empty cartridges that don't need resetting and that will always accept a self refill.

Empty cartridge light keeps flashing


These cartridges don't have anything internally to check for new ink. They simply work on a basis of counting pages and page coverage to estimate ink levels. As such it is perfectly normal for your printer to warn of low ink once the cartridge has been refilled.

A low ink warning in itself should not stop your printer from printing though. If it does it is likely that the light is actually indicating a problem recognising the cartridge after refilling. I would recommend cleaning the copper contacts on the front of the cartridge and checking for any messages on the connected PC or laptop for more information.

Can't put ink cartridge in


Unplug power supply (black box where power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer) then put it back after 30 seconds. Once printer is ready, open printer cover to replace the ink.

Low ink warning


In short, yes. The way printers often track ink levels is by counting the number of pages printed so you have to reset this when you put in a new cartridge. As canon uses a number of cartridges be sure to do this only for the one replaced. You will get more functionality when this is done via the computer software for printing but as you don't say which O/S you are using I cannot give details.

Have installed new ink cartridge. still getting low inw warning


Hi there,

The low ink cartridge warning is nothing to worry about. If it prints, it prints. Most modern printer cartridges have a chip on it which lets the printer know when the ink is low. When you run low on ink, it sends a message to the printer which sends a message to the computer telling you to refill the ink. The problem is that it doesn't go away once you refill the ink. It still prints, you just get a notification whenever you want to print. You can still use it up until that new cartridge runs out of ink. :)

Hp black cartiedge is low on immediately


When you refill a cartridge, the printer will keep warning you that it is empty- a message pops out that says "low ink". That is because the printer sees the cartridge by it's serial number. The printer can't know that you have refilled the cartridge, so it keeps saying that it is empty. Once you put in a new cartridge, it will display the cartridge as full again.

Everytime I put in new ink cartridges to my Canon Pixma MP140 printer, the ink levels stay at 'running low'. Why?


If it is a brand new cartridge it will show as full. If you have refilled your ink then it still shows as low. Their should be an option in your printer settings to turn off that annoying warning.

Changed black ink caertridge but still getting the low ink warning


If you are using a remanufactured cartridge, the low ink warning is actually normal. Since the printer cannot detect the amount of ink in the cartridge, the OEM companies place a chip inside of each cartridge that counts the number of pages that you print. When the cartridges reach a certain number of pages, they automatically tell your printer that you are running low on ink. Unfortunately, when the cartridges are remanufactured, the chip is unable to be reset. Here is a link to a site that sells remanufactured cartridges on how to bypass the low ink warning on Lexmark printers:

Low warning annoying me


Dell's proprietary grip on its printers causes this message to appear with any non-Dell or refilled cartridge. The messages/ink filled levels will only be reset if you buy a new Dell ink cartridge or have a way to update their encoding strip.

The good news is that you can still use refilled cartridges just minimize the level warnings to the task bar and ignore them when they come up. Everything should still print fine.
