Reset ink level for HP 460

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.

    Edisonfrelan,



    I did what you said and looked for anything that made reference to "ink settings" and found that I was able to adjust the amount of ink that is printed on the page only, there was nothing else about ink settings. Do you have any other advice?

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.

Hp laserjet m1522f error 5 turn off and on


Hi, Error 5 is a Scanner error. When turning the printer on, have the lid up so you can watch the scanner movement. Does it move smoothly? It should go through a warm up and you should be able to watch the scanner movement. If there is a problem with the scanner, there isn't a lot you could do except. The service manual says the scanner assembly should be replaced. If it was my printer, I would try to take a closer look at the scanner assembly and check to see if the scanner unit is bound up somewhere, or maybe a drop of 3 in 1 oil on the scanner rails. Let us know what happens.
thanks

How does the bulb look? Is it bright or kind of dim. The bulb warming error is designed to halt use of the machine until the scanner bulb reaches the correct output level. As these are basically a flourescent tube, they will dim over time and at a certain point they will not generate enough light to enable proper scanning. If the bulb is dim, it will require replacement.

Vista OEM Cd usually doesnt come with drivers.

Printer should have come with its own cd which contains both the software & drivers.

If it didn't come with any
You can try using windows update
or
downloading drivers from hp site

HP printer psc 2210 all in one


Chances are that you didn't lock down the scanner when you moved the unit. You can attempt to open the unit and move the scanner bar manually to reset it. HPs are very difficult beasts when it comes to their power up check out. It must be fully functional...including all cartridges...to work in most cases. Good luck.
