Canon compatible ink cartridge not working?

Posted 25th Mar 2015
I recently bought Canon compatible inks from Tesco for my MG3250 printer. The cartridges are 540XL and 541XL. After putting them in the printer, the printer did it's bit of calibrating the new cartridges and then i attempted to print a test page, a pop up came up which acknowledged new cartridges had been installed however the ink levels still remain as showing very low, not only that but when anything is printed no ink transfers to the paper so i get a blank page everytime. Has anyone experienced issues like these and have a solution? I put my old cartridges back in and it printed fine minus some fading due to low ink.
