Just refilled the ink cartridges on my HP Photosmart C4400 All-in-One series with refill inks. It doesn't seem to print full colour, my prints are coming out a muddy blackish purple colour. How can I get it to print full colour correctly?

If you do a lot of printing you may wish to look at an option such as this

You can't get the in in the wrong section of the cart (which I suspect has happened).

Please note the link is for information only and I neither know nor have used the seller listed. A google search may well provided a list of sellers for you to choose from.

I have used a continuous ink supply on my Epson (have you noticed they appear less on here for problems?) for 3 1/2 years now and my printing costs are minimal compred to useing either after market refills or refilling myself.

We purchased a HP Photosmart C4400 series last December 2009. I have just put in a new black ink cartridge and the printer is not printing the black properly, it still very faded. I have put in the correct...


Black printer ink in HP Photosmart may fail to be recognized by the printer. Most times an error message will be sent indicating that something is wrong with the black print cartridge. Sometimes the printer may accept to print with the black ink, but the printouts may have horizontal lines and very illegible letters. In such a case a manual cleaning of the print head should be carried out. In doing the manual cleaning, one should spray Windex heavily on paper towel and wipe off the surface of the print head.

I have refilled the ink in my hp74 cartridge and it does not register as full on the printer. It also, does not print anything?? Barely ledgable when it does...very very light.


Your refilled hp 74 will not register as full after you do a refill.
You will have to remove some ink out of the ink cartridge.
There is a special clip that can be purchase to do this.
You could just leave the cartridge in overnight for the ink to reach the bottom.
The ink cartridge will then be able to print.

I filled my cartilages but they printer says they are empty


If you refilled the cartridges with a refilling kit then this error will continue. You see, cartridges have a chip installed on them and it is programed to calculate approximate ink remaining after a certain number of pages are printed.

For eg, a chip on a new cartridge is programed that a full page takes say .5 ml, then if you print 1 full page or two half pages, it will deduct .5ml from the ink volume. When it reaches zero, it does not know how much ink is in there; it never knew in the first place. Now if you refill it up, the chip just thinks that all the pages have been printed so the cartridge must be zero.

In short, this error will stay, if you are able to print ignore the warning and continue to print until the print quality degrades. If you are unable to print you might have to install a new cartridge. OR if you're luck, you may find a chip reseter on the internet or from the refill service.

Black ink cartridge wont print, have installed a new ink refill still no joy. Will print in all other colours.


Well if you already installed a new black ink cartridge and still wont print, then try cleaning your printer head. It can be that the some ink was hardened and got stuck preventing you to print a black color.

Color ink is not working


Dear Black Rose
It is strongly recommended to change your colour cartridge.
Or it can be possible that you did not use your colour cartridge for a long time.
The nozzle of colour cartridge are blocked, if you did not use your colour cartridge for a long time.
Purchase a new cartridge if you can or go for a local refiller to refill (if possible) your colour cartridge.
Thanks

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.
