    Answer

    Thank you for a response but the levels do not read below 2 so I did not think that was the answer. It is impossible to know everything and that is why we come to this site, to gain perspective not be looked down upon.

    Ink End means the printer thinks the cartridge is empty. One of a few things

    that specific cartridge is empty
    the chip on that cartridge thinks it's empty
    the empty tab on the cartrdige is sticking out triggering the printer to say it's empty (this will also write empty to the chip which cannot be undone)
    the empty tab microswitch in the slot has come loose or become damaged triggering the empty message
    the main board is going bad

    One that does strike me as odd is it indicates the color as "S"? Maybe that is cleaning solution in unused slots on a machine configured as 6 color?


    "looked down upon"??? You did not really give much information to go on like what you have already tried, what the ink configuration is (CCMMYYKK, CMYKLcLm), etc. Also, only one thread was necessary....
