How to reset expired hp 02 cartridge

I'm not sure what you mean by "reset" and whether you are speaking of ink jet or laser cartridges. From my experience all HP laser cartridges have a small chip (with a little circuitry) that counts down your pages and when it decides your cartridge is out of toner you cannot "reset" that chip, you can only replace it, so like when you refill the cartridge. Some of the HP laser printers let you override these toner level chips (my HP 1518ni does) but in many laser printers you are stuck when the chip counts down to '0' pages. Some printers will run if you remove the chip from the cartridge but from my experience most will not.
Ink jet cartridges are somewhat similar but I gave up on ink jet printers several years ago. I know for some brands (Epson?) you can buy a small tool that somehow resets the cartridge chip (so if you refill cartridges yourself); possibly there is something similar for HP ink jet cartridges.

My epson4800pro will not accept LD replacement ink. I know there is a way to override the error (invalid ink cartg) but I don't remember it. Is it as simple as hitting the reset button ?

Hey there,
All you need is a chip resetter tool. It makes contact with the chip on the cartridge and sets it as full again. You should be able to find one at most major office supplies outlets or ink replacement kiosks. Less than $20.

I have a pixma mx870 and when I use aftermarket ink it keeps saying it cannot recognize the ink cartridge

There's a chip in the OEM cartridge. If the aftermarket one doesn't have the chip, or it wasn't reset, that's what will happen. You should be able to override this and tell it to use it anyway. Contact the seller or maker of your aftermarket cartridges for override assistance.

Be aware, however, that if you use an override, the printer will assume you're using a refilled or non-supported cartridge and burn through cleaning cycles and other ink wasting maneuvers.

The printer companies don't make money off these printers. They make it off the ink. So, they do everything they can to force you to use their highly profitable ink.

The Kodak all in one printers are actually very good, inexpensive, and the ink's dirt cheap, comparatively speaking. They're trying to change the model for printer companies, and making some headway.

Installed refilled ink cartridge and computer/printer will not accept it so would like to override it.

Some printer cartidges can not be refilled and have chips inside. Search internet for a chip proper to your cartidge.

I am using refilled cartridges on my canon mx310 and it says it is out of ink. how do i override.

Most major manufacturers of ink cartridges now include a computer chip on or in the cartridge that tells the printer how much ink is left (The printer manufacturers make their profit off of selling ink, not the printer - that's why the printers are becoming so inexpensive.)

Once this chip determines that the ink supply is exhausted, it sends a message to the printer telling you to replace the ink and basically shuts the cartridge down. There are some folks who have found a way to "reset" the chip back to factory defaults and will sell you a kit with instructions on how to do it.

I suggest contacting the supplier of your after-market ink and see if they have one of the reset kits available or can recommend one.

Without the make and model I can give you the following information: A print cartridge consists of the ink bellows or chambers, ink jets, which meter out ink in known dispensing rates, and a little chip that keeps track of the ink that is dispensed. Commercial refilling houses have the hardware and software to reset the little chips back to "full". And when you purchase that cartridge, it meters out ink from full to empty. There may be a utility in your printer control on your desktop to allow you to override and reset to full yourself. This is dependent upon what brand and model, and the software provided by the printer manufacturer.
