This printer takes the HP 940 cartridge. I own a Cartridge World ink refilling store and we cannot refill these cartridges yet. There is a chip on the cartridge that estimates the ink levels and shuts off the cartridge when it thinks it is empty. Any refills you find are either violating patent law with replacement chips or they are telling you to take the chip off your old cartridge and put it on the new one. This second scenario is a rip off because once the chip says the cartridge is empty, no matter how much ink is left, it will refuse to print.

Printer error message


Is this an OEM ink jet cartridge -meaning was it made by HP and not a refill. There is a microchip on the ink cartridge that the printer logs how many times it has used that cartridge and how many times the print head is cleaned. If this chip gets dirty or if the mating side has ink or paper dust on that side you can clean it with isopropyl alcohol. If it was a refill or a generic cartridge the chip might not be programmed or it is dead. There is no sensor that detects how much ink is in a cartridge.

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.

Hp940 cartridge refilled thrice, refilled fourth time, the printing has stopped and asks for new cartridge. in pune local market the cis system is not available, neither refillable cartridges, nor the chip...


The problem you state is chip related, you are lucky to have used refills the number of times as you have, depends how low you let the cartridges get to. 3/4 used then I refill. The chip in a lot of the cases needs to be reset, there is a refill pack which includes a gadget to reset the chip.

Have learnt that with the numous suppliers these days there are a lot of cheap outlets which cater for our printer.

As a matter of interest should you decide to purchase make sure the replacemet is "WIRELESS" the 8500 non wireless cartridge does not work in the "Wireless 8500".

I have an HP Officejet Pro 8500 all in one printer. My magenta doesn't print. I can't print anything with red/pink in it. Can you help?


Try another cartridge first, making sure it is located properly in its seating and is the right spec.

You may not know, 8500 non wireless cartrigdes do not work in wireless A909.

Are you talking about replacing the cartridge at the left side front cartridge compartment or the printer heads under the scanner lid?

How can I make your 8500 pro accept a refilled HP cartrige.


The HP 940 cartridge is the new version of the HP 88 cartridge. Both have a chip that estimates ink levels. Once the chip says the cartridge is empty it will refuse to print, no matter how much ink is really left in the cartridge. This is a safety measure so you don't get air in your ink lines. If you get air in an ink line, that color will no longer print. We can refill the HP 88 because there are replacement chips available for these cartridges. I own a Cartridge World ink refilling store and I don't refill the HP 940s yet because I don't have access to a replacement chip. If you purchased a refilled HP 940 and it's not working, I would say the chip has not been replaced. I would wait until a reputable refiller (i.e.-Cartridge World, Office Depot, etc..) offers refills for this cartridge before you try anything off the internet.

How to Refill HP940XL Ink Cartridge?


I just bought a printer that uses these same cartridges & I just got off the phone with Cartridge World. Apparently, the cartridges can be refilled, but there's a microchip that prevents the refilled cartridge from being read as "full" by the printer. They are working on "cracking the code" and, once they do, refilled cartridges will be available from them. I don't know if or how that microchip can be replaced if you refill your cartridges yourself, sorry.
