Question about HP DeskJet F4280 All In One Printer InkJet
I have a new HP F4240 printer which uses a HP60 cartridge. I have refilled every other printer cartridge that I have ever used, and it has been many, but this HP60 cartridge does not seem to be refillable what so ever. I have tried to refill 4 different cartridges and have the same problem with all of them. The cartridge is full but will not print and the printer tells me that the black is empty. I do a lot of printing in my business and that is why I refill my own, but this one seems to be a problem. I have done some reading and have seen others say that the HP60 is not refillable. Can anyone help or did I waste $100 on this printer. $15 per cartridge is getting expensive and we go through 1 per week. It would be cheaper for me to throw this printer away and buy one that uses a different cartridge.
Can any one help????

Ya, what you got to do is that >>
Step 1: Go to C:\Program Files\HP and Delete as much as files you can delete from this Folder
Step 2: Go to Start >> Printer and Faxes
then select your HP Printer and Right Click on it
Go to >> Proplerties >> Ports and
uncheck "Enable Bidirectional Support"
Step 3: Go to Start >> All Programs >> HP >> "Your Printer Name" >> then Below "Add a device option" delete all the things except Uninstall option.
Do all these and always Refill your cartridge before its out of ink .
Hope this will solve your problem
PS: You might wonder how the Printer will work without its driver file, Well, the actual drivers of HP printers are here: C:\WINDOWS\system32\spool . So if you delete things from HP the printer will still run with its basic functions and no Solution Center

It is a Good Practice to refill your HP 60 (Black) Cartridge with 2 ml Ink after around 30 pages printed.
Use Pigment Type Ink for refilling Black 60
How can you know that the ink is Pigment ? Well, that's easy !
put a very little amount of refill ink into a A4 paper and brush your finger on it to make a Black Circle of 1 inch diameter. wait for 2 minutes and put a drop of water on it. Ink from the circle diluted into water ......then it is Dye Type..........Ink is not that much faded then its the right type of ink for HP 60 Black.

I have no problems refilling the HP60 cartridges.
Go to the following website and download the freeware InkMonitor 2.1.2: http://www.pokluda.cz/. You have to add data about new cartridge. HP60 ink cartridge information, 200 pages per cartridge. This works great for me. It gives you a history of everything printed. This way you can gauge when its time to refill your cartridges. You must refill before they run out of ink or you will burn out the print heads and have to replace them.

For Windows 7 - and printer HP photosmart c4780 - but this works for other platforms and HP printers. (see both solutions below - solution 2 is worth trying if 1 does not work)
To disable ink checking - digital imaging software - automatic software updates. I disabled the whole lot as i don't need it. But you can try to experiment with what you disable and not disable to see if you can keep the other software functions.
Go to "Run" and enter msconfig - goto the Services Tab - uncheck - HP digital services, maybe another HPsch*** (cant remember name).
Now Go to control panel -goto System & Security - Admininstrative tools - Click on Services - find HP Cue Discovery Service - right click and select disable - find HPQCXS08 - right click and select disable.
Now roboot the machine - your ink monitor is now disabled & when you click on HP solution center you will get a message telling you that your installation was not complete and to reinstall.
HP has posted a solution to get Ink levels to work- so you just need to do the opposite
