Deskjet 1050 Ink Cartridge Problem

I replaced black cartridge with a Palsonic 61XL compatible. Original HP color cartridge (which is full) and replacement black both have flashing warning lights. If i replace Palsonic black with original 61 (which is nearly empty) error message says "Low Ink". Is replacement 61 XL no good. Either way, printing is not possible.

    Thanks, 5miles. I had tried black only printing before posting.

    Thanks also to masterexpert. I had tried this also prior to posting. This printer in fairly new. This is the first replacement of the black ink cartridge since purchase.

    What is confusing is that the original 61 color cartridge now registers the warning light, as well.

SOURCE: ink cartridges

Go through your standard print procedure. File>print then look for the properties button which is usually on the top right of the window. Press Properties and look for either Printing in B/W or grey scale. That should prevent your color cartridges from printing. After you check that box, you should be able to print black only.

try cleaning the brown dotted circuit of the printer where you fit your cartridge .clean it gently and slowly with moist tissue and wait for a moment till the moistness get completely dried.and also check whether you are changing the proper cartridge which the message is indicating.check the proper number on the cartridge which you replaced. also try changing the both the cartridges sometimes this helps.also check whether the cartridge is inserted properly in the printer sometimes it is fitted loose in the printer so this happens.

SOURCE: HP Deskjet 6940 not printing after replacing ink cartridge

My HP Deskjet 6940 is not printing. The color (left) low ink light is dark and the black (right) low ink light is flashing. I replaced the black ink cartridge with a new one but the low ink light continues to flash. No tears/rips in the circuit strip and all the copper leads appear to be connected

SOURCE: cartridge error hp officejet j6480 generic cartridge

I own one of these printers and refill cartridges for a living. When you get this problem its best to return the cartridge for another, thats what I do for my customers.

When buying re-manufactured cartridges its best to buy from a local store and ask about there return policy before making your first purchase.

If you are buying from a reputable re-manufacturer then this will be a very rare problem. It happens with genuine HPs too.

BTW this printer uses HP 74 & 75 inks. when buying re-manufactured buy the HP 74xl which gives (according to HP) 750 printers compared to 200 from the HP74. Remanufactured HP75s are fill to HP75xl capacity.

HOW CAN I RESET INK CARTIDGE LEVELS ON HP DESKJET 3510


When you get an HP 61 / 61XL integrated ink cartridge refilled (i.e. currently offered at Costco or Frys today) or if you buy a remanufactured/compatible HP ink cartridge, the ink levels cannot be reset (HP has a smart chip embedded within the nozzle plate at base of ink cartridge which counts the drops and then registers as empty).....so you'll just need to live with it and ignore 'ink low', 'non-genuine', 'counterfeit' messages and similar while you are using these types of aftermarket supplies. The first video below provides an overview of this 'low ink' phenomena.
Additionally, severe cartridge errors (i.e. Incompatible cartridges, Black/Color cartridge(s) problem / Cartridge not intended for this printer, etc.) typically indicate the internal micro-electronics of the HP 61 cartridge are electrically damaged. The cartridges electrical wire runs at rear and lower side of the ink cartridge are very delicate and are somewhat susceptible to ink attack over time, which can lead to premature failures. In addition, the older the cartridge the higher the chance of an internal electrical failure due to prolonged ink exposure and subsequent circuit corrosion. I suggest you run a Tap 41 diagnostic test to check cartridges electrical health (this is a forced service test so the printer will attempt to send whether cartridges are good or not); Refer to Inkjet411 youtube videos below:

Printer Error Message


Yes, there a few items you need to consider with respect to HP 61 (or 61XL) cartridge errors messages on any HP Deskjet 1000 through 3510 printer model:
If you get an HP 61 / 61XL integrated ink cartridge refilled (i.e. currently offered at Costco or Frys today) or if you buy a remanufactured/compatible HP ink cartridge, the ink levels cannot be reset (HP has a smart chip embedded within the nozzle plate at base of ink cartridge which counts the drops and then registers as empty).....so you'll just need to live with it and ignore ink low, non-genuine, counterfeit messages and similar while you are using these types of aftermarket supplies. The first video below provides an overview of this low ink phenomena.
If the new (or refilled/reman/compatible) HP 61 / 61XL ink cartridge refuses to complete the printer alignment following cartridge installation, then the ink cartridge either has a connectivity issue with the flexible printed circuit cable (inside unit where cartridge mates with cable), rear cartridge contacts or cable contacts are dirty with ink residue, or the cartridge is suffering from marginal internal electrical performance. Ensure you press OK or Cancel up to six times to clear out the printer error log.
These types of severe cartridge errors (i.e. Incompatible cartridges, Black/Color cartridge(s) problem / Cartridge not intended for this printer, etc.) typically indicate the internal micro-electronics of the HP 61 cartridge are electrically damaged. The cartridges electrical wire runs at rear and lower side of the ink cartridge are very delicate and are somewhat susceptible to ink attack over time, which can lead to premature failures. In addition, the older the cartridge the higher the chance of an internal electrical failure due to prolonged ink exposure and subsequent circuit corrosion.

Will HP 60 ink cartridge work with HP Deskjet 2460? Tnx.


This is all HP recommends for the HP Deskjet 2460, so I wouldn't suggest buying anything else. First of all it might not fit and second, even if it fits, other issues may come with using those. If you can't see the list here it is:
HP 21 Black HP 21 Black Twinpack HP 21/22 Black/Color Combo HP 21/22 Quad Pack HP 22 Tri-color Twinpack HP 22 Tricolor HP 58 Photo
