The only work around to this is to use two catridges(2 color and 2 black and white). The reason is the printer has a mechanism to check if the same catridge is being used again. SO when you have two cartridges when one is finished refill the other and use and vice-versa. This way you will be able to refill and use for ever without any problems..

I do not recommend home refill kits, there is much more involved in making refills work than just injecting more ink into the cartridge. I recommend Cartridge World for ink refills because they make sure you get the manufacturer specified amount of ink and make sure that the cartridges print before selling them to you. You can get cartridges for 20-35% off the cost of original HP brand.

My hp deskjet f4180 printeris acting like it is printing, but the pages are coming out blank. The cartriges are new, they worked for the first few pages, then it started printing lighter, and lighter...


Hello. It sounds like the cartridges are running empty, strange that new cartridges would run empty so quickly. Depending on the cartridge number the 21 and 22 are very low capacity. you do have the option of using a 57 colour also which has approx double the capacity, but unfortunately the black is only a 190 page cartridge (according to them, real world testing has shown much less)
If it has been refilled try this link below to get it flowing again. http://www.fixya.com/support/r3986425-unblock_print_heads
If the Cartridges are HP Brand jump on the phone to HP to obtain a replacement cartridge.
F.Y.I Most compatible cartridges (21 and 22) have a capacity of approx 20ml of ink, compared to HP that hold approx 6ml. I would recommended SkyWell Brand of compatibles as they have great colour and a large capactiy.
I hope this helps Regards GM

I just installed new ink cartridge and light blinking cant print p0ls help F4185 printer


Maybe u used refilled cartridge?

You must be using HP21.
Have you refill your cartridge at all?

If you did, gentely wipe out the cartridge circuit part with Q-tip (with bit of alcohol).
And wipe out the circuit part in the printer where cartridge goes in as well.

And try back.
Sometimes by having some dust or bit of ink make cartridge unreadable.


If you used brand new, do same thing to cartridge circuit part.
Otherwise, there got to be some circuit shot happen in printer.

For your reference, HP f4180 is not a new model and has not cause major problem.
Good practical and durability is good.

If you would like to save money, try refill kit by "ROADINK".
Not only they are easy, but also the printing quality is good.
For your better understanding pls check out my youtube video.
And will see how easy ink refill can be done.

I put a new colour cartridge in to my 810C printer but the colours all came out wrong. How do I clean the ink jets please?


I am not sure what you mean by colors come out wrong. However, if the new cartridges are refills, there is the possibility that the refillers damaged the cartridges.

Try this: remove the color cartridge from the printer and check the bottom of the cartridge for ink blobs. Blot any ink around the silver screen-like area. Try not to touch that silver area. If there is no ink there, reinstall the cartridge and go to the Printers and Devices where your printer should be listed. Right click on the printer and select printer properties which will bring up a properties window where you select the Services window and select "clean the print cartridges" (this is Windows 7 but XP and Vista are not much different) Select ok and wait for the printer to go through its gyrations. Don't select "prime" at this time. When the printer finishes, try printing again. If the colors are still messed up, you could return to the clean selection and select "prime" in the next window (not likely to help).

If these don't work, you can run the clean cycle a couple of times, but chances are the cartridge has failed inside, allowing the inks to run together. Whether it is new or refilled, just return it for a replacement.

This means that there is issue with the Ink Cartridges.
Please remove and re-insert the cartridges.
Check the expiration date on them. Also make sure that you are using genuine HP Cartridges, not refilled or Remanufactured.
If the issue still persists, please replace the ink cartridges.

Hello,after refilling ink cartridges HP21 and


Since HP’s ink technology is different from other manufacturers, they do not recommend to use refilled or remanufactured ink cartridges. Though the cost of genuine HP cartridges are bit expensive than the other cartridges, HP cartridges are manufactured in keeping mind the important factors print quality and customer satisfaction. Using the refilled cartridges may degrade the print quality and may damage the printer’s internal hardware.

I request you to use genuine HP Inkjet cartridges and verify the result.

Printing problems


If you don't use the printer often it is possible that the ink gets dried inside the cartridge, hence you get the print out with low quality or blurred. We suggest you to use original HP cartridges and keep using the cartridges frequently.
Thank you for using Fixya.

HP always recommend that ink cartridge should be replace by original ink.

As this kind of scenario will occur if the ink will just be replace by a refill ink.

HP Deskjet F4180 colour lights flashing and printer offline


Hi I have exactly the same problem, and can't scan or make copies. I went to HP Online, and tried their advice, which didn't work. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00867129&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=3177566&rule=25623〈=enHP's solution made me realise it might be a scanner problem. I made a wild guess and kept the cover above the glass panel open. Turn off your printer, lift the cover up and turn on again. The lights should stop blinking and you should be able to scan/copy/print. I guess the cover prohibits the device to scan properly causing the blinking lights. Hope this helps!

I have a HP Deskjet F4180 AIO. It is printing


If you just replaced the ink cartridges, make sure you've removed the plastic tabs that cover where the ink shoots out. If they are old cartridges, make sure that the nozles haven't dried up. Remove the cartridges and dab a cloth (one you don't mind staining) where the ink shoots out, if all the colours show up, it's clear. If you notice very little colour, or none at all, try dampening the cloth and wiping down the cartridges to promote inkflow through the nozles. Hope this helps.
