Hp printers cartridges have a circuit, which could be damaged in your case. That is the reason you are getting the error message. However, The use of refilled print cartridges alone does not affect either the warranty or any maintenance contract purchased from HP for its Inkjet printers. Repair will not be covered under the warranty or by the maintenance contract if an HP Inkjet printer failure or damage is found to be directly attributed to the use of a modified or refilled HP Inkjet print cartridge.
I strongly sugget you to use HP genuine ink cartrdiges. I understand that wont work out economically.

NVM reset for hp photosmart c4780


You can gain access to the service menu...refer to Cartridge Error Clear bypass procedure below (as guidance of how to get in):

For any severe cartridge error related message, on the HP C4600, C4700 or D110a printer models, I suggest you run the internal Tap 41 diagnostics test which will tell you the electrical health of the ink cartridge - in many cases the cartridge is internally electrically damaged and will need to be replaced. In addition, you can temporarily bypass an 'incompatible cartridge(s) or Missing/Not Detected error message by performing the Cartridge Error Bypass procedure...refer to two Youtube videos on how to do this:

The printer keeps messaging ink on sseveral colours is low but it is not. Have even tried new cartridges but no difference, same message . Seems to be misreading ink level


Some printers need special software (that shipped with the printer) to "tell" the printer that the ink-cartridge has been replaced, and that the ink-levels need to be fully "reset".

Take out the print cartridge. Clean the points on the cartridge with cotton swab and try using it again.

Incompatible Ink Cartridge notice with proper HP ink


These types of severe cartridge errors (i.e. "refer to documentation" / "incompatible cartridges", "print cartridge(s) problem", etc.) typically indicates the internal micro-electronics of the HP #74 / 75 (or 74XL/75XL) cartridge(s) are damaged. The cartridge's electrical wire runs at rear and lower side of the ink cartridge, are very delicate and are somewhat susceptible to ink attack over time, which can lead to premature failures. In addition, the older the cartridge the higher the chance of an internal electrical failure. I suggest you first run a 'Tap 41' diagnostic test to check cartridges electrical health (this is a forced test); you may also bypass the error (temporarily) on most models which use HP 74/75 cartridges. Refer to Inkjet411 youtube videos below:
