Question about HP Photosmart C6280 Printer
My HP C6280 had an empty cartridge. I replaced it and the printer is recognizing it, but when I go to print the computer says that I need to replace the ink cartridge. I have Windows Vista. I have also gone on the computer and checked the ink cartridge levels and it says it's full, but it won't recognize it when I actually need to print. It just keeps saying I can only print in black.
This is what worked for me today..
Reset the All-in-One to the factory default settings by using these instructions:
1) Press Red Eye Removal & Print Photos button simultaneously
2)Enter Special Key Combo is displayed on the screen.
Press and release in sequence "Red Eye Removal", "Print Photos", "Red Eye Removal"
Display should say "Support" and display the FW rev XXXXX.
3) Press Right Arrow button until "Reset Menu" is displayed. Press OK.
4) Press Right arrow untill "Semi full Reset" is displayed.
5) Press OK.
Now, check the functionality of the All-in-One. If the issue persists, please perform the next troubleshooting steps

There are only a few steps you need to do to reset a Brother printer ink cartridge and once you do it, you will be up and printing in no time. There are actually two things that a Brother printer uses to detect ink and you can manipulate one or the other.
Things You'll Need: · Black electrical tape, masking tape or duct tape
1. Step 1
Identify the printer If your printer uses memory, you can tell which printer you have by looking at where the cartridge goes in, if you see two "eyes" and a part of the cartridge goes in between them, follow Step 3. Otherwise, continue with Step 2.
2. Step 2
Clear the memory by taking the cartridge out and unplugging the unit for 30 seconds. Then, plug it back in and put back in the cartridge. You may need to do this five times, as the memory holds the last five cartridges.
3. Step 3
If the Brother printer has "eyes" where the cartridge goes, you will need to block in between them with a piece of tape so that it thinks the cartridge is always full. Simply put a piece of tape on the piece of the cartridge that goes in between the eyes to block the path of the infrared beam
