Dell inkjet printer cartridges contain a chip that communicates with the printer to closely monitor ink levels to maintain print quality. When you refill an ink cartridge or install a remanufactured cartridge, the printer chip still reports that the ink cartridge is empty when, in fact, it is full, giving you warning messages each time you attempt to print a document. You can reset the Dell inkjet cartridge chip so that the computer no longer will display these warning messages when you print.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Open the Dell printer cover and install the refilled or remanufactured ink cartridge.

  2. 2

    Turn the printer off and wait approximately 30 seconds. Switch the printer back on. A new dialogue box will appear asking whether you recently changed the black or colour ink cartridge.

  3. 3

    Remove the checkmark next to "Complete-A-Print." Click "OK." A new dialogue box will appear.

  4. 4

    Place a checkmark next to "Don't display this dialogue again" and ensure that "Complete-A-Print" does not have a checkmark next to it, again. Click "Continue Printing." Allow the printer to fully print the document.

  5. 5

    Restart your computer. Open another document and print it to verify that the inkjet cartridge reset and the error message no longer appears.
