cartridges

My printer works with an empty colour cartridge, printing in black. But when I put in a brand new compatible cartridge I get the light for the coulour cartridge and the printer refuses to print.

Most printers have a chip on the exterior of the cartridge that tells the printer the cartridge has used all of its toner. Cheap compatibles either don't change the chips or use cheap ones that don't work.
