I refilled the ink to my HP 8500 wireless with bulk ink designed for the printer and have done a full reset> But it still shows ink levels are low and keeps going through printhead cleaning non-stop. This is the first time I have refilled this thing from the factory cartridges. Is the only solution to give HP more money on buying there very expensive ink cartridges?

Have you taken the well out and wiped the contacts of the well and the contacts of the printer with an alcohol wipe? I had that problem with a much older HP printer and I manually cleaned the contacts and that fixed my problem.

I have also never had much good luck buying the ink refill kits. You can usually find either generic or HP ink cartridges on eBay or any other online auction site MUCH cheaper than buying them retail. I would honestly go that route instead of fussing with refilling your existing cartridges.

Reset ink cartridge


Unfortunately you can't....

The ink level indicator cannot be manually re-set in the newer HP, Lexmark or Dell integrated ink cartridges, thus making it not usable. The OEMs all leverage 'fusible links' in the nozzle plate (internal to base of ink cartridge) which physically blows the resistors as the original ink is consumed...thus resetting the ink cartridge's ink level monitoring capability is simply not possible. The ink tracking feature is only available with a brand new ink cartridge.

However, losing this feature is not necessarily significant, because the ink level indicator usually has 20%-30% ink remaining when it shows "low on ink". Therefore, the warning has limited value, because customers who prematurely replace their cartridges when they see the "low ink" message are wasting a lot of residual ink.

Refer to any of the following videos which cover this 'low ink' subject in detail:

I refilled HP 8500 cartridge but printer (Officejet Pro still thinks cartridge is empty. How do I reset ink level?


This model printer may only let you use genuine printer cartridges. If you try to refill these ink cartridges it will not work because the cartridges have an embedded chip in the cartridge that detects the empty cartridge even though it has been refilled.

I just refilled my HP6500 ink cartridge 920. The ink level indicator still shows a low level of ink. How do I reset the ink indicator.


There is no way to reset the ink levels on this cartridge type yet. Any replacement chips on the internet are violating patent law. Once the chip tells the printer it is empty it will not print no matter how much ink is left in it. There is always a lag time between the introduction of a new cartridge type and the ability to fill it properly. For refills I would recommend Cartridge World when this cartridge type can be refilled.

How to reset the ink level for a HP 60 ink cartridge? I have just refilled a HP 60 black ink cartridge but can not find anything on how to reset the ink level. I would do the "3 ink cartridge" trick but I...


You cannot reset the ink level indicator for the HP 60 ink cartridge. It shouldn't matter anyway because the level is only estimated for "management purposes only" (see user manual) meaning to let you know when it's near time to order a new cartidge. I have tried cycling through 3 different cartridges to reset the ink level for the one I refilled but it didn't work. Refill and just ignore the ink level indicator. Also, it's a good idea to clean the print heads with the solvent in the refill kit before refilling to remove old ink and imrpove print quality.
