Re: printer not printing
Did you do a test page and re aline the cartridges? when you removed the cartridge did you go through your computer to the "safely remove" program for the ink cartridges?? of just take the things out.?
there is a proper procedure for removing and replacing ink cartridges. if the machine doesn't know the replacement was made it will still think you are low.
if you have the manual for operation look for the "how to replace ink" and follow the directions.
there is also a plastic film that covers the new cartridge head and it needs to be removed. did you do this?? Or a pull tab at the end of the thing.

These cartridges don't have anything internally to check for new ink. They simply work on a basis of counting pages and page coverage to estimate ink levels. As such it is perfectly normal for your printer to warn of low ink once the cartridge has been refilled.
A low ink warning in itself should not stop your printer from printing though. If it does it is likely that the light is actually indicating a problem recognising the cartridge after refilling. I would recommend cleaning the copper contacts on the front of the cartridge and checking for any messages on the connected PC or laptop for more information.
Turn the printer on.
Lift the lid that covers the print-head mechanism.
Wait for the print-head to slide to the position at which the ink-cartridge(s) can be removed.
Press down on the ink-cartridge, to "unlock" it from the print-head.
Gently remove it.
Insert a new/refilled ink-cartridge, and "lock" it into place.
Print a "test" page.
When it says "error U410 -ink has run out even though ou have refilled the cartridge follow this procedure:-
1.Press Ok to get past the above error message. The machine will take a few momets to do its own calibration, etc.
2.When it comes on line, Hold in the rest button for 5 seconds.
3.When you request a print job, it will still show that the ink is low, just disregard and it will go on to print as usual.
The ink level gauge may not work properly with refilled cartridges. Because of this, you might get low ink message after refilling. To install the refilled cartridge you might need to override the ink level gauge. Overriding the ink level gauge disables the printer’s ink level tracking feature, but allows you to use refilled cartridges. To override the ink level gauge, please check your printer reference guide. After disabling the ink level tracking feature you should check the ink level visually and as soon as the ink level gets low you need to refill the cartridge. You do not want to try to print with an empty cartridge. Trying to print with an empty cartridge may damage your print-heads.
otherwise you will have to replace the cartridge .
You cannot reset the ink level indicator for the HP 60 ink cartridge. It shouldn't matter anyway because the level is only estimated for "management purposes only" (see user manual) meaning to let you know when it's near time to order a new cartidge. I have tried cycling through 3 different cartridges to reset the ink level for the one I refilled but it didn't work. Refill and just ignore the ink level indicator. Also, it's a good idea to clean the print heads with the solvent in the refill kit before refilling to remove old ink and imrpove print quality.
The ink your purchased is likely a cheap watered down version of what your printer is meant to take. You may notice that the ink smears when you rub the page directly after printing. Why you chose to use the blue and red ink to make black blows my mind. These refill kits are insanely cheap and buying the black could not have been much more. Not using black ink in the black cartridge would explain why your print is faded. Also, there is no way to reset the ink levels on this type of cartridge. As long as the printer still prints, just ignore the ink level indicator and print until the ink runs dry. I recommend Cartridge World for ink refills because they use high quality ink to manufacturer specified volumes while still saving you money.
