Question about HP Photosmart C5180 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I had bought this HP c5280 printer knowing the ink supplied is almost empty as you get it. So as usual the ink began to rapidly run out.So I quickly bought a refill kit off ebay with the ink and injectors etc. Well after I refilled it the ink improved and worked fine for 3 weeks and then ran out of blue. The HP software had been complaining that the colour cartridge was getting low on ink from the get go but since I had re-filled it all looked good There is no way to tell the software its full, that for sure so I hope for the best . Anyway the blue will not work at all now. I even refilled again and used the suction syringe to draw out the ink and also tried soaking the cart in some warm water. The blue leached out a little so I was sure Blue is there. Still will no print Blue at all so this proves it is a electronic FIX that HP do deliberately to make it difficult to do any refills. I would guess that the only way to prevent this is to refill the cartridges before they get to the half way point and NOT the low level point. that way the level indicators might be tricked. What is needed is a cartridge that can fool the printer into thinking the ink is full all the time. Now I would pay £20 for that and refill that forever if it worked. If anyone has some solutions to this problem ,do please let me know. Thanks... Ross
