Hp c4150 printer won't recognize my refilled black 98 cartridge. first time it has been refilled. how do i reset the printer to accept the refilled cartridge?

Dear jiraphe102,

Welcome, and thank you for using FixYa!

Unfortunately, you have the particular brand of cartridge that cannot be refilled. The smart chip on the original cartridge has expired; and will not reset.
You can purchase refurbished Ink online (meaning they have rebuilt the entire cartridge) at the link below.

Refurbished Ink

Or buy new cartridges.

Have a great day!

My printer won't align new ink. It says load paper in tray. I load it. then blank page come out and gives me the same message. Load paper in tray. I did a diagnostic test and at the bottom it says...

Sorry to know you're in trouble with your printer. Here are my suggestions: You have to buy a new genuine cartridge or you can refill ink. Be warned! Refilling ink or using a refilled ink cartridges will not work until the ink cartridge chip or ink monitor is disabled. For instructions on how to disable an ink cartridge chip, please visit []Now you can CURSE the manufacturer of your printer for making your life sucks by making it complicated the things that should be made SIMPLE and EASY. Printer or Cartridge, more or less, cost you the same. Don't you think the printer cartridges should be made simply refillable/usable unless they are broken, and we should be buying only the ink for the cartridges. It is SO ANNOYING, dude! Good luck.

I had been refilling my cartidgesand they worked well. Now, I refill my Cann bjc 250 cartidge, but the printer does not printp. I buy a new one. This cartidge worked well. Why the refilled cartidges do not...

when you refill a cartridge...they have a life spam...they do not last long...
because cartridge are manufacture to be use or refilled by 2 or 3 times...then if it reach the limit you have no choice other than to buy new one...

I have just changed all the ink's in an Epson d120

If you replaced with "genuine" ink-cartridges, then it should report "full".

If you replaced with "refilled" ink-cartridges, then the company that refilled forgot to "reset" the electronics inside the ink-cartridge, in order to report "full".

Or, perhaps, the software "toolbox" that came with the printer has a button "I have installed new cartridges, please re-verify the ink-levels" ??? Click that button.

Refill a 564 black cartridge instructions?

Refills are not possible for this cartridge type yet. There is a chip on the cartridge that needs to be reset or replaced for the cartridge to function. Any chips for sale on the internet are technically violating patent law. Any refill kit that tells you to take the chip off your cartridge and place it on their refill is swindling you. Once the chip says the cartridge is empty it WILL NOT print, no matter how much ink is actually left. I would wait until a reputable refiller like Cartridge World or Office Depot offers refills for this cartridge before you try to fill it at home.

Refilled ink cartridge but it says cartridge is empty how do i reset my printer?

Actually each original cartridge has a sensor that reports back to the printer information like ink level and others.
Once the cartridge gets empty, there is no way to reset it, even though you just refill it.

Can EPSON Stylus D120 Cartridges be refilled and reset?

The cartridges for this printer can be refilled. The chip needs to be reset on them so I suggest going to Cartridge World for refills because they have a 100% guarantee that they will work. The chip resetters can be pricey and filling these cartridges is messy without the proper equipment.

Merroy error 100.10.10

There isn't a known error of 100.10.10 on an HP2600n. The is an extremely rare 101.000 which is color plane registration but I'm guessing your not getting that.

I'm assuming your actually having one of the following:
10.0000, 10.0001, 10.0002, or 10.0003
10.1000, 10.1001, 10.1002, or 10.1003

These are supply errors (toner cartridge). The toner cartridges have a smart chip on them and if it's not reading correctly you can get one of the errors I mentioned above in the "10" errors. In that case look at the last number in the string to isolate it. "0"=Black, "1"'Cyan, "2" =Magenta, "3" = Yellow. Simply replace the identified cartridge.

We have seen a lot of refilled or self refilled cartridges that the supplier or user didn't put a new smart replacement chip on the cartridge, pulled the chip without replacing or actually put the wrong one on the cartridge. This would cause the "10" errors. In some rare cases a surge in power can knock out a chip on the cartridge.

Here's a photo of the chip on the black cartridge to help you locate it.

If you are getting a "10" error identify the last number to identify the color and replace the cartridge.

If you are ACTUALLY GETTING AN ERROR 100.10.10, contact HP as it is an undocumented error and likely only HP may be able to resolve it. I have even researched the error through Canon (they make they base machine for HP) and Canon has no record of this error either.

I hope this helps you. If so hit it with a FIXYA. Thanks.

Printer refills

Some refills won't work on some printers, because the printer actually reads a chip on the print cartridge, a good refil will have been reset, if you did it yourself, or if the company you bought it from did apply the chip reset device on it, the printer will never allow you to use it, thanks HP for the wonderful idea grrr. Be careful with refills anyhow, because some printers use easy clogging ink and refills can be dangerous.
