Tip & How-To about Office Equipment & Supplies

Your refilled HP ink is not recognised by your printer.

Sometimes your printer won't accept your refilled cartridges although you have full ink & no leakage.

What you can do is to trick the printer software. Use another cartridge & refill it and later you can use the first one.
Another trick is to remove the CMOS battery to erase the error. ( its location varies from printer to printer ...a bit painful)

Please if you found the tips helpful please rate it. Thanks.

i have changed the colour ink on my canon mp460 but it still say empty


CL41, this is the one you are using for your cartridge.

Did you change your cartridge with brand new one or refilled one??

If you did with refilled one, the ink level won't go back with full.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This is the method how printer measures the ink level.

1. Each cartridge has a serial number.
2. As soon as installation in printer, printer recognizes the cartridge by serial #.
3. And the printer starts to count the printing document.
4. After reaching certain print counting, the ink level will show "low ink"

So my answer is even if you refilled your cartridge, the ink level won't change,
since printer cannot weight the cartridge or.....some other technology to measure each color ink level.

Thanks.

Can't get HP PSC 2530 to accept re-filled catridges! Both are full but it keeps telling me to remove and check right-hand one; can't by-pass or override the message.

HP PSC 2355 Won't accept refilled ink cartridges


If problem is what I think it is (that is if you cleaned whole thing and it is connected proprely), you have only one option. To buy at least three cartridges...problem is due a small trick made by HP. Printer remembers at least two cartridge serial numbers, and then wont accept refilled ones. But if you first stick one, then the other, and on the end the third one(only this one should be really full) it should reset printer and it should foul it to accept it. But on some printers it needs up to five cartridges! What a waste of money :( Anyway, hope this helps...
