First of all understand what is cartridge the you can solve your problem your self in future if related same: The cartridge contains two parts 1. ink tank, 2. Pen(electronic nozzles controlled by mother board).. Ink tank contains ink & main source to pen to write,.. if ink is over you wont get any image.Ink is there but pen is not writing then no use..both conbination has work to gether to create image..As you said ink is there, but pen is not working due to ecetronic nozzles are faulty & this information with mother board, that's why its indicating that replace the cartrdige..And we can't repair it because of micro technology.
See fig: 1. Container, 2.Nozzles. 3. Electronic contacts to control nozzles..

Just replace the cartridge....

Will 27 black and 28 tri-colour cartridge work on a D1560 hp deskjet

HP 21 black and HP 22 tricolor cartridges are the cartridges compatible with HP DESKJET D1560.HP 27 and 28 won't work with your printer because they won't get recognized by the machine.It will only give you an error message like incompatible cartridges.

I bought in US printer c4780 and use ink HP 60 but then I moved to Europe and bought HP 300 as it has this model on the box. The printer shows that the ink is incompatible

For commercial reasons, HP have region locked their printers, so that you cannot buy a printer in the US and then take it to another region e.g. UK and buy the cartridges there, or buy cheap cartridges form another region. There is no way to re-program or unlock the region coding of the printer. You can either try to get your HP60 cartridges refilled or buy another printer.

My new HP Deskjet D1560 wont accept HP21 black cartridges. Keeps saying they are incompatible.

I scrapped the faulty printer and bought one by another manufacturer. I know that is not much help to anybody with the same problem but at the price of the printer that solution suited me best.
