Why does my printer still show a low ink level after the cartridge was refilled?
Many cartridges have an electronic signature that enable your printer to read the ink levels. Since the refilled cartridge has the same electronic signature, your printer might still recognize the cartridge as being empty.

Try opening and closing the printer?the computer might ask if you have replaced your ink. Or, go to the printer tool bar to manually reset the ink setting to full, to turn off the low ink message or to select the option that says ?new cartridge? if available. As a last resort, you can continue printing even with the low ink message.

  Why should I print a test page?
The purpose of a test page is to check that text and graphics are printing correctly. Usually, a test page also shows extra information such as the driver software version which might be needed to troubleshoot any problems. Printing a test page ensures that any excess ink in the nozzles gets cleaned out.

Since printers do not recognize a refilled cartridge as new, your printer won?t automatically print a test page. It is a good idea to print a test page before you continue with your everyday printing.

  What can I do to help keep my printer cartridge  refillable?
Refill your cartridge as soon as you see streaks or out-of-balance color. If you let the ink run out entirely before refilling your cartridge, it can burn out the print head which will limit how many times it can be refilled.

Store your inkjet cartridges with the print head down to help keep the print head moist. Also, always bring your inkjet cartridge in to be refilled as soon as possible after removing it from the printer. This will prevent the ink from drying and damaging your cartridge.

No. Using refilled printer cartridges will not void the printer manufacturer's warranty. The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act of 1975 prevents original manufacturers from, as a condition of the warranty, requiring the use of their printer cartridge.
