Whenever a cartridge in a Kodak printer is running out of ink, the printer shows an error message which reads ‘Out of Ink’. It indicates that the cartridge is low on ink. This happens because the inkjet chip is unable to detect the amount of ink present in the cartridge. Even if the cartridge is full to the brim, the error will still appear. In case the message still appears after the installation of a new cartridge, the error is a result of improper detection of the refilled level of ink by the inkjet chip. It means that the printer can no longer print because of low level of ink. The drawback is that the printer will not print anymore until it recognizes some ink. The inability of a printer to print can seriously impact the overall productivity in any work environment. Thus, it is important to troubleshoot the issue and do away with the error.
To refill the ink cartridge and continue printing, the error message must be overridden. The ink cartridge must be reset to read the correct levels of ink and override the Kodak printer error ‘Out of Ink’. For this, an inkjet chip re-setter is needed which will help you know whether the ink cartridge is filled up to the required level or not. You merely need to follow the steps mentioned in this article on how to override Kodak printer cartridge. However, these steps might not necessarily work for all Kodak Printers.
