There is no such mechanism to detect ink levels in your printer., it wont detect if adding more ink in it., it will detect only new cartridge when you replace it., printer shows estimated ink levels as per the print outs. This is hp trick to aviod refill &non hp consumables...
That's means you didn't refill the colour ink properly.
Try this method, use the injection to draw any of the colour of about 2mm of the refill you bought, inject it into one of the tiny holes of the cartridge and draw a little back so as to remove the dirt in the foam inside the cartridge.. That's all
the most important is to remove all the air from the cartridge that has left inside durring refilling that is why professionals are using special machines that refill in 0 air πρεσυρε using vaccum pump

It is a problem using refilled toner cartridges, especially in colour machines. Mono (Black) printers are usually ok to use a good quality refilled cartridge, but colour machines generally do not like them.
Have you tried to print a Configuration page from the control panel <Information> menu?
HP will tell you to never refill cartridges because they will not guarantee your printer will print properly with those refilled cartridges. If those refilled cartridges leak and cause damage to your printer HP will also not cover any repairs to the printer regardless of what sort of warranty coverage you have with them. Warranties only cover HP failures, not ones caused by using third-party or refilled ink cartridges. So, no it is not worth having the cartridges refilled - buy new HP-branded ones only.
