Expired HP printer cartridges

I have been given an HP CP1700 printer. I get a message that the black cartridge has expired. I do not know if the printer works so am reluctant to spend money on cartridges only to find that something else is wrong. The system indicates taht the cartridge is over 90% full anyway. Is there any way of fooling the printer into accepting an old cartridge - even on a temporary basis so I can check if anything else is wrong?

    Same problem. I don't have the same registry string in the post that walks you through modifying it.

    Where is the battery located please?

  • Gerald Walker Nov 21, 2008

    Thanks fellas. Removing the battery and replacing it did the trick. Will bear other comments in mind if the problem arises again.

I have the identical problem with an HP Business Inkjet 1100.

Once cartridges were past date, the printer would no longer print from Windows XP. It would however work perfectly from Linux.

I did not find an ini file as mentioned in other posts, and I really did not want to open the printer as it worked fine in Linux.

The following fixed the problem:

1) Click on Start button, run
2) Type in regedit, enter
3) Navigate to HKLM/software/Hewlett-Packard/HP Printers/HPWH Toolbox/Common
4) In the right panel, right click on Ink, pick modify
5) Change 0100 to 0000
6) Save and reboot

On the CP1700 I was able, through other forums, to locate the battery causing me no to be able to use perfectly fine but recently expired ink. It took me a while to locate it and some nimble fingers to fix it but it has saved me a ton of money.
1. unplug 2.locate the battery 3.slide a piece of clear plastic (from retail packaging) between the contact and battery 4. wait an hour 5. plug back in and voila!

Hi everyone HP Cartridge expiration problem solved

Model : HP Business Inkjet 1000 series

Problem : Cartridge Expired

Solution : Normally you can't override cartridge expiration date problem but you can hack and overcome from the problem. As per the documents from the web saying this model can remember up to 3 cartridge of one particular colour. Normally each cartridge will expired within 2 1/2 years.

Mine also expired. To disable the link level feedback to system you have to unplug some cables inside of the printer. So you have to search web for that. I was also refilled the cartridge and reuse it upto 2 1/2 years. After that my 4 ink cartridges were expired and refuse to print even the ink levels were good.

How to overcome this problem. HP the International company's cartridge protection technology having some loop hole in their protection. They want more business than what they are selling. They don't like people refill and use their cartridge. They want to force the user to buy new cartridge get more profit. 

Normally the each cartridges portion in the printer recognize and memorize the chip bottom of the each cartridge. For example the black cartridge part the printer recognize the chip fixed bottom inside the black cartridge. It won't check or memorize the other color cartridge chips. 

I just removed the chip of the black using a nice blade and swap the chip of the pink (double side glue is used to paste the cartridge chip. You have to very carefully do this. Otherwise chip will damage). Do the same trick to other two cartridge. After you swap note down which cartridges you swaped and keep it in safe place. Later it is useful to swap it again. Better swap (1 and 2) (3 and 4). At least you can swap and use the cartridge for 10 years.

Other model of Business inkjet you have to try it yourself. It may work. Best of luck.

On the HP Color Inkjet CP 1160 Printer Just remove the battery
and throw it away. Cause once you remove it, it is almost impossible
to replace it back into the printer. Its located on the lower left side
of the printer on an upside down circuit board.

HP business inkjet 1200 solution for expired cartridges. There is a 9 pin connector located under the ink cartridges. The cover can be removed by prying it off. It is held in by 4 fingers the lock it in place. Under the cover there is a plactic barrier that I cut the middle section out to get access to the connector. I unplugged the connector and removed the white wire and plugged the connector back in and my expired cartridges work just fine.

OK everybody, The simple way to fix this problem is to reset the printer. All of the newer printers have a battery inside. I just slipped a piece of plastic between the battery and the clip and left it there for about five minutes. Removed the plastic and presto. The internal record keeping info is reset and I am printing again. I did this on two HP CP1700's and it worked fine

Honestly, the only easy way is to get new ink cartridges. However, most HP's have a battery in them. Taking out the battery and leaving it sit for a while and taping the end of the battery will reset the dates in your printer. But those take HP 10's & 11's. Chances are if has sat, your printheads are bad as well. So the true question is do you want to spend 34$ a whack for each print head, and then for the ink? If you replace each head and say get the large black, you're spending nearly $200. I'd say if you're not sure, get the ink refilled at your local cartridge world, and try it then. They re chip the 10, so it won't read expired. If it tries to print, then focus on the printheads

I bought a black ink for my hp photosmart c5 180 and the when i turn on the printer it says the ink has expired. Can i still use it or will i damage my printer. Thanks regards Anita


Hello
according to HP
Each ink cartridge has an expiration date. The purpose of expiration is to protect the printing system and to ensure ink quality. When you receive an ink cartridge(s) are expired message, remove and replace the expired ink cartridge, and then close the message. You can also continue printing without replacing the ink cartridge, by following the instructions on the HP All-in-One or the ink cartridge expiration message on your computer screen. HP recommends replacing the expired ink cartridges. HP cannot guarantee the quality or reliability of expired ink cartridges. Device service or repairs required as a result of using expired ink will not be covered under warranty.

HP CP1700 - no cyan or blue printing


Try taking a look at your printheads. Have they been installed for some time. You may need to change them. Start with the Cyan first.

"Expired color cartridge" message blocks black printing - nothing works


Hello merelU. I'm afraid you may have to replace the empty color cartridge as there may be problems with the printer while an expired cartridge is installed on the printer (even though some of the cartridges are still under warranty) and also, HP cannot guarantee the quality or reliability of expired ink cartridges.


all the best.

Refilled ink cartridges


The reason why the printer says supply expired because the ink cartridge has its own warranty. When the warranty of the ink cartridge has expired then you will get that message. Eventhough you refill it. You need to replace the ink cartridge itself.

Expired ink cartridge


You may be getting this error message due to the printer being able to tell that it is a non-hp cartridge. I don't know how it can tell, but mine says that too. I uninstalled the software and then reinstalled the software. And then I took out the cartridge and put it back in. See if this works for you.

My Hp PSC 1350v


Hi, I really appericate all your efforts to fix the issue the issue usually occures if any one of the cartridge is defective or low in ink or both the cartridge are defective. We can isolate the issue only by removing the both the cartridges out of the printer and check for the expiry dates printed on the cartridges as if the cartridges are expired also leads to this message. If the cartridge are not expired and have minumial ink in it you can try the below procedure to isolate the defective cartridge Once the both the cartridges are out of the printer insert only the black cartridge in the printer and check for the message if the message is install color cartridge the black cartridge and printer is detecting fine. If the message is check right cartridge this shows that the black cartridge is defective. If the message is insert left cartridge or color cartridge remove the black cartridge out and insert only the color cartridge and check with the message if the message is insert the black cartridge the color cartridge is working fine. And when the color cartridge is in the printer and if the message prompts to check left or color cartridge the color cartridge seems to be defective so replace the defective one will fix the issue So in isolation we can find the defective cartridge and fix the issue by replacing the defective one.. Hope this will help you to fix the issue.. Wish you success. Regards, Barret.
