Remanufactured Ink Cartridges

My HPDeskjet F4440 suddenly stopped printing when using a remanufactured ink cartridge. Replaced cartridge with HP cartridge and printer works fine. Did HP upgrade printer program so that printer would not operate using a reman cartridge? Bummer!

Ink empty after replacing ink cartridge


Printers often show 'ink empty' when a remanufactured cartridge is used. Usually the printer will still print but some makes have a block that stops this.
My Canon does the same but i ignore the message and it prints OK.

The printer suddenly started printing fuzzy text. I think it is out of alignment but when I try to print the alignment page, it comes out fuzzy too. Is there another way to align the printer and take care...


There are several reasons why the HP All-in-One may fail to align the cartridges. The most common reason is an ink cartridge that has one of the following problems:
  • One of the ink cartridges is low or out of ink. Black and all three colors must be available.
  • The paper has already been printed on or is colored paper.
  • Protective tape on a new ink cartridge has not been removed.
  • Contacts on the ink cartridge are not meeting the contacts in the carriage correctly.
  • Cartridge is remanufactured or refilled. Refilled or remanufactured ink cartridges may have been damaged during the refilling process or have clogged ink nozzles.
  • The ink cartridge is defective

Hp c7820 printer 02 black catridge


Open the printer and remove the ink. Clean around the ink carriage and the under the ink with alcohol and a cotton swab. Pay special attention to areas with copper contacts. Keep in mind too that some printers will not print, even with full ink, if the exact type of ink it expected you to have installed is not right. Double check that the ink is correct against the manual or written instructions inside the printer using the number not the shape or color of the cartridge. Not every cartridge that fits the printer necessarily works.

Hp 5550 print cartridge light flashing.power light on,not flashin


All HP ink cartridges are dated. If you are using the remanufactured ones the date is not changed and will not work properly at all. By HP ink only and you will never run into this again.

Hp 5150 deskjet says that it is low on color ink


The low ink warning is actually normal for remanufactured cartridges. Since the printer cannot detect the amount of ink in the cartridge, the OEM companies place a chip inside of each cartridge that counts the number of pages that you print. When the cartridges reach a certain number of pages, they automatically tell your printer that you are running low on ink. Unfortunately, when the cartridges are remanufactured, the chip is unable to be reset. The prints should still be the same quality. You can either press the "Resume" or "OK" button to continue printing, or go into your printer settings and manually disable the ink level indiactor.

Change all ink message


Your Lexmark cartridges may be like my HP ones--they have a chip that the machine reads so they cannot be reused without doing some tricks to fool the printer.

My HP remembers the last 2 or 3 cartridges and also will not use ones that have passed the expiration date that is stamped on the cartridge. I'll tell you what worked for my HP.

Check the date on your ink cartridge.  I bet it has expired. If you put in a "new"cartridge but it is even an HP one with an older date, it may not work.
I had my printer stop in the middle of a print job.  It was printing fine and suddenly would not print.  So I refilled the cartridge with an ink kit I had on hand and reinserted it--no go!  Then I opened a remanufactured cartridge I had bought some time ago and inserted it.  No go, despite the fact I could see ink coming from the jets.  I finally gave up and bought a new HP ink cartridge, and it worked just fine.  But it bugged me why the new one would work and the other two that seemed just fine would not.

Later I learned that HP has a chip that reads the expiration date on the cartridges and that is what keeps those old ones from printing.  I found one trick of setting my date on my computer back to a year earlier than the exp date on the cartridge.  I saw the date on the remanufactured one I had tried earlier was 2005, so I set my computer date to today date but year 2004.  After forcing me to do print alignments several times and take the remanufactured cartridge out and put it back, I got it to print just fine.  And that 2005 cartridge that would not work earlier is what I am printing with right now.
Be advised, though, if you try the date setback, that HP printer will buck and try every way to not let you use that old cartridge.  You must say no to reflashing if HP tries to pull that on you.  And you will take out and put back that same cartridge multiple times and keep printing alignment sheets 3 or 4 times before you are successful.  But, if you persist, you can get it to work.

Printing problems


Are you using remanufactured cartridges? If so, I would strongly recommend that you replace with factory HP cartridges.
