Most inkjet printers have cartridges with chips. They don't mesure the ink level. The printer is using the chip as a memory to keep track of the amount of ink left in the cartridge. So when it orders the cartridge to print, it will subtract the amount of ink from the memory. So in most cases the chip will tell your printer it is empty, while still some ink can be left in there.
Cartridges in a laser printer also have chips with the same functionality.

My refilled ink cartridge still displays empty and will not print


The ink cartridge is most likely chipped & you would not be able to reset the ink level. Purchase an original or a good compatible cartridge. Refiling newer cartridges is not a good idea.

Refilling ink cartridge and the printer will not


You cant!

You might want to see if there is a chip resetter that allows u to reprogram the chip on the cartridge.. This little inconvenience is to ensure you use GENUINE cartridegs from HP. Epson and canon are also in this racket.

Heres a link to some cartridges that might help you overcome thye problem in future

Ink level didn't change


s.gif Deskjet 5100 series
  1. Click Start or c01319360.gif , click All Programs , click Hewlett-Packard , and then click Printer Assistant .
  2. Click Utilities .
  3. Click View ink levels .
    • If a cartridge is low on ink, discontinue these steps, replace the cartridge, and then try printing again.
    • If the cartridges contain a sufficient amount of ink, continue to the next step.
  4. Click Printer Maintenance .
  5. Click Clean Cartridges .
  6. Follow the on-screen instructions.
ISSUE: After installing a new HP Inkjet print cartridge, the ink level indicator remains at the previous level. SOLUTION: Continue to print and ignore the ink level indicator. The print cartridge is full of ink, it just is not being measured accurately.

Black Ink shows empty even after installing on HP Photosmart 3210


These cartridges are really only ik resovoirs for the printer. It does have an ink flow sensor, though. If the printer does not recognize the ink level, it is possible that you got a cart with a bad chip. I refill these alot, and all you can really do is check the chip on the cart and make sure nothing is on the contacts...otherwise replace. A good step would be to put the old cart in and see what happens...

How do I reset the ink levels?


We have an issue of missing or replace yellow cartridge. Please feel free to contact the HP support for replacement of the printer, if the printer is in warranty status. HP would replace the printer.
