Probably. Try reinstalling the print drivers to see if it clears it up.

Yeah, some cartridges now have smart chips in them which can tell when they've been reused ...

Surely CartridgeWorld would know that though?

Have you tried powering down the printer (unplug it) for a day or two and then reinstall the ink cartridge? I don't know. Maybe there's a reset button somewhere.

Yeah, the cartridges definietly have a smart chip in them. They won't let you reuse them.
