Refilled hp 8600 ink cartridges and still says empty

Tried to save money by refilling my ink cartridges today and it still says empty. I have taken out the battery to reset the memory and it still has not changed. I know that there is a way to "trick" the printer and reset the memory but I am unsure how to do it... Please help.

    No, that's not it. In the cartridges for the HP printers now have chips. In the chip their is an ink counter or a page counter along with an expiration date for the ink. Whenever any of those thing reach the limit the cartridge will no longer function. My problem is that I ran out of ink in my original cartridge from HP, then to save money I refilled it myself. By doing so the printer has that cartridge still stored in its memory and believes that it is empty. In looking for solutions to the problem I found that some people had some success with taking the battery out of the printer to reset the memory. This did nothing.

    In doing further research I have found that others have had success when cycling several (3) cartridges to fool the printer into think that it is a new cartridge. This worked but the printer says that it is not a genuine HP ink cartridge and now it cannot read the ink level. That is minor to me but I would like to know if anyone has actually done what I am doing or Know how the fix the problem. Thanks!

    I have the same problem, and after refilling the OEM cartridge I put it back in and cleaned the print head and aligned the printer. It came out great but as soon as I tried to print I got the yellow empty replace cartridge.

Reset ink level after top off of ink? canon MG3500 series


You cannot refill ink cartridges anymore. There is a computer chip in the ink cartridge and when it goes empty, it stays empty forever. The printer companies were losing money when you refilled the ink yourself, so they installed a computer chip to stop customers from doing it.

Reset ink cartridge


Unfortunately you can't....

The ink level indicator cannot be manually re-set in the newer HP, Lexmark or Dell integrated ink cartridges, thus making it not usable. The OEMs all leverage 'fusible links' in the nozzle plate (internal to base of ink cartridge) which physically blows the resistors as the original ink is consumed...thus resetting the ink cartridge's ink level monitoring capability is simply not possible. The ink tracking feature is only available with a brand new ink cartridge.

However, losing this feature is not necessarily significant, because the ink level indicator usually has 20%-30% ink remaining when it shows "low on ink". Therefore, the warning has limited value, because customers who prematurely replace their cartridges when they see the "low ink" message are wasting a lot of residual ink.

Refer to any of the following videos which cover this 'low ink' subject in detail:

How do I refill the Epson Stylus SX125 ink cartridges ?


You can refill an Epson ink cartridge, but you will need an "SK168-II Chip Resetter" to clear and reset the cartridge memory chip. The cartridge will still show as empty after refilling and not work until it is reset. The refill ink should have come with an instruction sheet. If not check their web site for instructions. If the cartridge has been empty for a while and you can hear the sponge inside when shaking it - it has fried out and cannot be refilled. The dust particles from the dried sponge will plug up the jets.

Some aftermarket printer ink sales web sites will offer the chip resetter for Epson printers.

My problem is that the printer is not recognising that the cartridge in inserted...it tells me "no cartridge" and also "ink empty", i have put 2 brand new cartridges in and it still...


reset the waste ink counter, put black tape on critical ridge of all cartridges and refilled them. All showed full. All was well for 2 sheets, then all 4 cartridges are showing as near empty on LCD also on software monitor program. Whether or not they are near empty, how does the printer know with the light beam blocked? I have made filling holes on each cartridge (sealed with rubber plugs) so that I can refill without removing them. Doing this is not going to change the readout.
My expert TIP: Buy a new printer. Printers today are as just as expensive as a set of printer inks. Printers have heads and they get dirty over time and might need replacement, which is all the more expensive. Try buying ink advantage printers, they DO indeed save money. Or try looking for somebody who knows how to modify your printer to a CIS (Continuous Ink Supply) printer.

Refilled cartridge, still says it needs to be replaced...


If you let the cartridge run totally dry then they need to be reset or replaced, I have tried purchasing reset software myself and found then to be a waist of money as they do not reset the cartridge at all. Do yourself a favor and replace the cartridge and remember to top up the cartridges before they get half empty.

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.

Dell 926 injection refill kit didnt work


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.

Canon MX310 - refilling cartridge


Most canons have a chip on the ink cartridge that tells the printer the ink is empty so unless you reset that chip (which you cannont do), that newly filled cartridge will always read empty. This is how some printer manufacturer's thwart people saving money by refilling their cartridges.

thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.
