SOLUTION

CAUTION! Do NOT continue printing in this condition. Damage to the Printhead will result.


One or more of the “septum needles” didn’t fully puncture the septum seal on the new Ink Tank.

Antistatic Brush Assembly was not installed properly.

Defective Ink Tank. Septum seal is not being punctured by needle.

Ink Level status is displayed as “Out”, but there is still ink in the Tank.

Visible ink level sensor does not see the presence of ink in the Tank.

Printer is not on a stable, level surface; causing ink level sensor to give a premature “Out” condition.
