1.Purchase a refill kit for your model of printer. It is important to purchase a refill kit designed for your specific model, since generic refill kits do not work well with HP printers. There are a number of places to buy these kits, but you must make sure you get the right kit for your printer model
2.Take the toner out of the printer and clean it carefully. Over time toner cartridges will accumulate paper dust, dried toner and other debris, and all of this must be cleaned away before the cartridge is refilled.
3.Flip the cover out of the way to expose the developer roller, then use a soft clean cloth to clean the roller. It is important to clean this roller before refilling the cartridge.
4.Make a small hole in the toner cartridge, using the instructions provided in the refill kit. It is important to follow the refill kit instructions carefully, since the toner refill process will vary from model to model.
5.Place the replacement toner in the hopper, then carefully pour it into the HP cartridge. Be careful not to spill any of the toner, and if you do spill the toner be sure to clean it up promptly. Reseal the hole you made after the cartridge has been refilled.
6.Sit the refilled HP cartridge on a clean flat surface and let it remain there for 20-30 minutes. Pick up the cartridge and make sure no toner has leaked out. If you do see any leaks you will need to reseal the hole you made again.

Yeah you can refill your cartridge. It is really easy and consists of removing the plug on the side of the cartridge, dumping out any old toner and dumping in the new toner. Its very easy. I have purchased refill kits from both of these sites in the past and its worked great:
They also have great customer service. I hope this helps!
The toner sensor where the cartridge is loaded is fouled or you refilled this cartridge and the printer does not reconise the toner inside and thinks its empty ether or sensor or refilled cartridge the printer thiks there is no toner.
1. Did you refill the toner?
2. Brand new cartridge > take it back to the retailer if that does not work the printer will need repair.

HP unfortunately uses a proprietary chip on their cartridges that renders normal refilling useless. You have a couple different options:
1) You can purchase an aftermarket toner cartridge. 2) You can get your hands dirty and ATTEMPT to do it yourself.
If you want to get your hands dirty, purchase a refilling kit, easily obtainable on eBay. See below link to an eBay search. The kit is made for the average person and includes the special reprogrammed chips for the refilled cartridges.
By far the easiest option is to just purchase a new aftermarket cartridge. However, with enough know-how, you can refill it yourself.
As far as I know, filling up with toner is not enough. There is an electronic chip that must also be replaced, so the toner cartridge tells the unit it is a new one. Check with your supplier for such chip.
Nobody has a clue how to refill a laser cartridge with ink. :)))
OK< just kidding, here it is:
First of all, laser-cartridges have toner (a fine black powder) and not ink.
Second: There are 2 methods to refill a laser cartridge: dismounting it to get to the toner chamber (involves a lot of tehnical skill) or the melt-and-pour method (see here http://www.urefilltoner.co.uk/), but you need the melting device.
But because from your question i see you dont know a thing about refilling, better go to a refill center.
