Assuming you have a refilled or remanufactured cartridge there this is actually pretty normal. These cartridges have no means of checking for new ink in the cartridge so will continue to warn of empty. They will not however stop you from printing as a result.
If however you purchased the cartridge as a brand new cartridge, you may have been miss-sold the cartridge. In which case I would advise speaking to whoever it was purchased from.
If your print jobs are colorless or color poor you need to replace the color cartridge, if your jobs look fairly normal but the printer says to change the ink. You are out of Black (because the printer can make black using all the colors.) However, you can usually lift the cartridge and feel the difference in weight. If both are so light they feel empty you are better off replacing both. Because of the way the HP printers print, unless you specifically told the printer to print black and white, two cartridges installed at the same time will probably deplete equally .
HP 74 - Black ink HP 75 - Cyan, Magenta, and Yellow ink HP 99 - Photo Black, Light Cyan, and Light Magenta
You need Photo Black, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Light Cyan, and Light Magenta to print photos. To accomplish this you install the HP 99 photo cartridge where your HP 74 black cartridge usually goes and you keep the HP 75 color cartridge where it's at. I don't know why your printer told you to remove both cartridges, then reinstall the HP 75 color cartridge.
My solution would be stop typing in caps so I won't hesitate to help you, but my solution is to just buy the ink cartridges or get an old, black only printer instead of a $120.00 HP All-In-One c3180. I have one and I cant use it for some reason, but I'm trying to get it to work desperately...
