Question about HP Photosmart C5180 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I refilled my inkjet cartridge but I need to turn off the "low ink" light on my HP deskjet 460 printer. I looked in all the software on my computer and in the manual but I cannot find where the procedure to turn off the low ink light is. This printer uses an HP 94 black cartridge and I do not use or have installed the color cartridge. Any help is greatly appreciated.
There really is no "reset" for low ink light - it is driven by the software reading of the ink levels on the cartridge via the connections. Sometimes they may be dirty and this can be removed by carefully cleaning (preferably using electrical contact cleaner on printer and dry air on both) the contacts. But many times a refilled cartridge will give this error and no cleaning or other procedure seems to correct it. HP is doing their best to not allow refilled cartridges and are working on ways to prevent that.

Try this, if you are in a windows environment, click your start button, select control panel, then double click printer, then right click the name or model of your printer, then select properties, then select maintenance, and then select ink settings. thats it

The simple solution is to scrap any printer that won't let you refill your cartridges.
No lexmarks, No Epsons. None of the newer HPs,
Canon manuals have instructions on how to reset your printer and the quality is fantastic.
Brother doesn't use chips so there's not problem there.
