Why am I getting " ink is empty or low " error after installing remanufactured Canon CL-241XL ink cartridges?



  • Why am I getting " ink is empty or low " error after installing remanufactured Canon CL-241XL ink cartridges?



  • It’s common for remanufactured Canon ink cartridges to read as empty or low.

    This is because the ink monitoring chip in the cartridge (especially the ones with built-in print heads) is intended for one-time use only.

    Your remanufactured Canon ink cartridges are indeed full and ready to print.

    Simply ignore the message, click OK (or CONTINUE), and continue to print.

    Some printers, particularly Canon inkjet models, won’t print if the cartridge reads as empty.

    You’ll likely receive an error message, such as the following:

    Canon printer ink error message indicating that your ink is low or empty.

    canon printer error codes - ink is low or empty

    Canon printer ink error message indicating that your ink has run out
    and for your to replace the cartridge
    canon printer error codes - ink has run out

    You can bypass these error messages by holding down your printer’s RESUME, STOP/RESET, or COLOR START button for 5 to 15 sec.

    The ink monitor will shut off, the printer will stop blinking, and the printer itself will resume printing.
