Question about Used Hp Photosmart C4780 All-in-one Printer
I bought it brand new three years ago and had the two ink cartridges refilled yesterday. I put them in and I got an error message saying "ink cartridge error." I followed the instructions on the printer (turn off, wait, turn on) but it didn't work. I have taken them out and put them back in many times to no avail.

These types of severe
cartridge errors (i.e. "refer to documentation" / "incompatible cartridges", "print
cartridge(s) problem", etc.) typically indicates the internal micro-electronics
of the HP #74 / 75 (or 74XL/75XL) cartridge(s) are damaged. The cartridge's 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. I suggest you first run a 'Tap 41' diagnostic test to
check cartridges electrical health (this is a forced test); you may also bypass
the error (temporarily) on most models which use HP 74/75 cartridges. Refer to
