Re: laser printer

Try cleaning the cartridge contacts by wiping with a soft cloth dampened with alcohol. also clean the carriage recieving side as well, these contacts if dirty will keep the cartridge from working.

We are also experiencing a high failure rate with ink jet refills-try to stay with a reputable company that has a guarantee. HTH

After refilling my black ink cartridge my hp printer software gives me a message "not the original cartridge" and will not print a document i send to the printer

Not necessarily that you have to buy a new cartridge just refill an original cartridge instead of an alternative replacement one!

Why lexmark 3550 won't print after installing new ink cartridges

Check your manual for instructions about this type of problem. Are you using the ink cartridges meant for your printer? Sometimes using refillable cartridges instead of the manufacturer's cartridges can cause the printer to still think the cartridges are empty, and display an 'on-screen' message that they need to be replaced, which could stop the printer from engaging. I have a Canon Pixma printer, installed refillable cartridges, and now the unit displays a 'cartridges are empty' message on PC screen; but the printer still works. The system just recently went into a non-printable mode displaying a more convincing message that the black cartridge is EMPTY, and completely stopped printing. The solution to this: press and hold the Stop/Reset button for about five seconds, and it overrode the issue and started printing. Moral of the story, maybe its best to just buy the manufacturer's printer cartridges.

I refilled my tri-color cartridge at Costco and my printer wouldn't print the alignment page. I bought a new cart and it worked fine. Then I re-installed the refilled cart to verify the fix, and it still...

a refilled cartridge IN NO WAY can lead to printer failure
the ink is the last thing on printer and has no effect to mechanical failures.

How do i install new ink cartridges in my mp190

Installing a new cartridge in your computer printer is quite easy. First of all it is recommended that you buy new cartridges every time you run out of ink instead of refilling it. Refilling cartridges will have negative impact not just on the paper but on the printer too. It has been reported that refilled cartridges have ruined many printers. After you buy the new cartridges, remove the old ones carefully.

Remember the printer should be turned off before going any further. Install the new ones in the empty slot and turn on the printer. Remove a test page from the printer and check whether the new inks work or not. The first one or two times the ink might be a little smudge but that's all right. It will become normal again after one or two print outs. If the problem persists, exchange the inks with your retailer.

Estimated ink levels are incorrect

The simple solution is to buy the HP cartridges. Often times,.. MOST times, aftermarket ink cartridges and refill kits are an inferior product. The difference is not always noticeable right away, but almost always rears it's head in the end. This is usually due to the ink being of a different viscosity than the original ink. Which leads to sloppy prints, sensor errors, leaky or dead jets.
Personally I recommend everyone buy Laser printers. With prices where they are these days, there is no reason for anyone to buy an inkjet printer. Lasers will cost more up front, but are much cheaper per page and generally longer lasting.

Refill Toner Cartridge for Laser Printer

Nobody has a clue how to refill a laser cartridge with ink. :)))

OK< just kidding, here it is:

First of all, laser-cartridges have toner (a fine black powder) and not ink.
Second: There are 2 methods to refill a laser cartridge: dismounting it to get to the toner chamber (involves a lot of tehnical skill) or the melt-and-pour method (see here, but you need the melting device.

But because from your question i see you dont know a thing about refilling, better go to a refill center.
