Question about HP D1560 Deskjet Printer InkJet
I used to reload my HP 500 desket cartridge and I wondered if it is possible to do the same with my new printer
While new printers usually have special sensors on the cartridge specifically designed to prevent unauthorized refilling, I think you're in luck with the D1560.
From what I've seen it looks like you just have to refill the cartridge through it's fill hole, which is underneith the label. All the refill kits out there do not mention any reset software, so this cartridge probably doesn't have a sensor on it.
Just make sure you get ink that is designed for that cartridge. Ink comes in different viscocities and it's important you get the same kind as what the original cartridge contained.

In most cases the printer driver software can have errors while being in use or is shut down. So to reset remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and then connect the Printer to be detected as a new hardware as it will be installed. Now check the printer properties to see the ink levels.
Activate head cleaning before a test is taken . Sometimes it is possible that the head is not reacting to the need of the PC command or can be an issue with ink drying or poor ink cartridge contacts. Sometimes the power supply unit must be checked as a poor SMPS unit can deliver low voltage and cause issues to the printer function. Check all the leads and connections of the mother board , the tags to the ink cartridge. Also check the mechanical settings of the ink cartridge , if jammed or tight remove motor and manually free the drive before it is set back.
