Everyone listen!!!



The HP 940 style cartridges have an inherent design issue that they collect air inside the black rubber pump. When enough air gets inside the black rubber cartridge pump they get soft/spongy - they must be firm (try pressing on it). The printer presses on the cartridge pump with a foot (gray plastic pad back inside the cartridge compartment) when it wants more ink to the printhead. If it presses and doesn\'t feel enough electrical resistance it thinks the cartridge is empty and errors "empty".

When a cartridge is truly empty, the black rubber pump will **** up inside itself, thus the foot does not feel any resistance. The only way to fix this is by occasionally remove the excess air from the cartridge pump. We recommend the AdaptiveInk Cartridge and Printhead Re-priming Kit. Yes, the Printheads also have an inherent design issue where they collect the air that is pushed from the cartridges. Excess air inside the printhead is what causes the majority of print quality issues you have when printing and this kit resolves this issue very well.

SOURCE: HP C4480 printer.Refilled the cartridge,how do I tell the printer

Are you using a factory new ink cartridge?
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.

Go to www.inkjet411.com or www.costcoinkjetrefill.com for tips on how to get around this problem. The printer thinks it is an old cartridge. By resetting the printer it will sometimes fix the problem and let you use the cartridge. Can also use 2-3 cartridges in a rotation to trick the printer

By using refilled cartridges you will always have this problem. Each cartridge has a chip that lets the printer know when it is full or empty. By pressing the ok button you may be able to clear this message. However, most of the time you can still be able to print and ignore the message.

Refilled ink cartrige still showing empty is their any way to reset printer


Regarding your HP Officjet Pro 8600 printer and refilled HP 950/951 ink cartridges and the "low ink" messages. Depending on your ink refiller (or if you did it yourself?), a replacement chip may or may not have been installed with the recently refilled cartridge(s). Refer to picture on our support site to first determine which type of cartridge configuration you have, then refer to the applicable section to address the current cartridge error(s) or printer issues.
http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1999

NOTE: Costco USA's Ink Refill service now 'chips' all refilled ink cartridges which fully restores all functions to that of a regular HP (OEM) ink cartridge and customer experience. For USA ink refill store locations and details on ink refill pricing:

Costco USA Ink Refill Service (all 453+ stores): http://www.costcoinkjetrefill.com

Fry's Electronics Ink Refill Service (all 34 stores): http://www.frys.com/ads/page51

Micro Center Ink Refill Service: http://www.microcenter.com/site/content/refill-service.aspx


Refer to Section A if your refiller attached a new replacement chip (green in color) onto the cartridge. Refer to Section B if only the original HP chip is attached.

----

CAUTION: Be advised, the use of compatible/clone cartridges (i.e. sold thru the internet from China) are known to be problematic and may cause printer errors and/or permanent PRINTHEAD failures (due to incompatible ink formulations). We do NOT suggest refilling these types of ink cartridges.....refilling of original/genuine ink cartridges is only suggested! HP original/genuine ink cartridges can be identified by the visible HP logo on the front label of the cartridge.

Ink cartridge refilled at Costco and the printer says it is empty. How do I override?


If the cartridge is truly empty go to Costco and ask for your money back, or for another cartridge, but you cannot run the print or copy functions of the printer without ink. You would not think of trying to operate your car when the fuel tank is empty, would you?

HPoffice jet #J4580 printer wont recognize Costco refilled Cartridge


This model HP printer may only let you use genuine Canon/Epson printer cartridges. If you try to refill these ink cartridges it will not work because the HP cartridges have an embedded chip in the cartridge that detects the empty cartridge even though it has been refilled.

How to reset hp 901 ink


When you get an HP integrated ink cartridge refilled (i.e. HP 60, 61, 74, 75, 901, 92-98....currently offered by Costco and Frys today) or if you buy a remanufactured/compatible HP ink cartridge, the ink levels CANNOT be reset (HP has a smart chip embedded within the nozzle plate at base of ink cartridge which counts the drops and then registers as empty - it uses fusible links so the electronics are literally blown - thus non-reversible).....so you just need to live with the low ink messages and ignore ink low, non-genuine, counterfeit, fraud messages and similar while you are using these types of refilled or aftermarket ink supplies.
Refer to Inkjet411.com sitelet for all printer models which use refilled ink cartridges (most major brands and models) - see videos below on HP 901 and 901XL low ink warning messages, along with all the other more severe error messages:

I refilled the black ink cartridge, and when I put it back in the printer, the printer says ERROR 13 meaning the ink level cannot be detected. Its essentially a brand new cartridge. What do I do? Ive tried...


It is not possible to refill the original Canon cartridges. The ink level indicator is integrated in the chip on the cartridge. When refilling, the information on the chip will not be changed and keeps giving the info that the cartridge is empty.

Trying to reload color cartridge.


Many brand name printer cartridges have a code that tells the printer they are a new cartridge. Once the cartridge is empty it will never again tell the printer that is it new.

You can refill the cartridge but it will continue to tell the printer that it is empty.

You say you "had my ... cartridges refilled today" so I suggest you go back to the folks who refilled them and ask them for suggestions.

Otherwise, purchase off-brand cartridges that won't tell the printer they're empty and keep refilling them as needed.

Another approach: purchase a new printer that won't give you this problem. I refill my Lexmark cartridges without any problems.
