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

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.

Refilled ink printer. still shows empty on the printer,s screen


Lexmark does not recommend the use of refilled/remanufactured cartridges. These tend to degrade print quality and printer/cartridge performance.
Please note that once a cartridge is refilled, it can no longer register its ink level.

Hi, Recently my printer cartidrge ink got empty and then I had refilled it,after installing I am getting orange light flashing 15 times and continously.Kindly advice me what's the prob,it was working fine...


Mostly cartridges have a sensor in it. Once cartridge gets empty, the sensor show error. Then even if you refill the cartridge the symptom remains there showing empty cartridge. Try using new cartridges, not refilled cartridges..

How do I refill the Epson Stylus SX125 ink cartridges ?


You can refill an Epson ink cartridge, but you will need an "SK168-II Chip Resetter" to clear and reset the cartridge memory chip. The cartridge will still show as empty after refilling and not work until it is reset. The refill ink should have come with an instruction sheet. If not check their web site for instructions. If the cartridge has been empty for a while and you can hear the sponge inside when shaking it - it has fried out and cannot be refilled. The dust particles from the dried sponge will plug up the jets.

Some aftermarket printer ink sales web sites will offer the chip resetter for Epson printers.

I have an HP F4580 printer, and have just refilled both ink cartridges. However the printer won't allow me to print as it thinks the ink has gone. How can I reset my printer to display ink cartridge...


Often they have a chip mounted on the cartridge which monitors usage and when it determines that there is no ink remaining, it will disable the printer. Some companies sell compatible cartridges and reset the chip counter. But unless you reset the chip, even tho the cartridge is full of ink, the chip still disables the printer.

Epson c88 shows ink out in all four cartridges but they are full


Are they "original" Epson ink-cartridges, or have they been refilled? Often, the refilled cartridges will show as "empty", but they work, until they _do_ get empty.

I have refilled my ink cartridges on my epson c60 printer and the printer display on the screen is still showing ink empty and the printer will not print


If you have refilled your cartridges and haven't re-set them, that's why they won't work. You have chips on both cartridges that need to be re-set every time you do a refill. You can either buy a re-setter on e-bay, or go to a refill shop to re-set them. What the re-setter does is assign a new serial number to the cartridge, thus "fooling" the printer to think you have popped in new cartridges. That is the only way to bypass the protection (chips) that Epson has put on their cartridges.
Sometimes, the message "low ink" or "no ink" appears even if the cartridges are not totally empty. If you are certain that their still is some ink int the tank, just re-set the cartridge without refilling it.

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.

With new cartridge indicates low ink level,


The ink level gauge may not work properly with refilled cartridges. Because of this, you might get low ink message after refilling. To install the refilled cartridge you might need to override the ink level gauge. Overriding the ink level gauge disables the printer’s ink level tracking feature, but allows you to use refilled cartridges. To override the ink level gauge, please check your printer reference guide. After disabling the ink level tracking feature you should check the ink level visually and as soon as the ink level gets low you need to refill the cartridge. You do not want to try to print with an empty cartridge. Trying to print with an empty cartridge may damage your print-heads.

otherwise you will have to replace the cartridge .

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 http://www.urefilltoner.co.uk/), 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.
