Must use Samsung Ink,not recycle like cartridge world, because there is a chip inside the board prevent privacy or recycle ink, i am a tech, i know how to shorten the chip so you can buy recycle ink cartridge. but its illegal to do that(but who care). Now my printer work on either Samsung ink or recycle ink.

You just got swindled by a discount internet refiller. My suggestion is to not even attempt home refill of a cartridge until stores in your area carry refills. That way you won't get tricked into buying ink or toner that is useless without a chip or chip resetter. I recommend Cartridge World refills because they have good customer service, a 100% satisfaction guarantee, and they help you save money.

Canon pixma ip2600 cartridge not installed properly


Please check if there is not some dirt, or something blocking the contacts from reading. Also the ink level is measured by optical sensor that can also be dirty. Also make sure you use an Original Canon cartridge. It could be the chip on the cartridge has either gone bad or could no longer be reset. The chip is what tells the printer that it is ok to print (i.e. there is ink available and that the cartridge is approved). Some chips will only be reset with available procedures a few times. Other times refillers are not succesful in resetting the chip or just give you another cartridge that is already refilled and could just happen to have a bad chip. You should probably return the cartridge and try to get one that will work based on the argument that refilling is not only related to ink but also to chip. Otherwise here is a web site that has a special page for your Pixma that contains all possible refill products: http://www.inkfilling.com/inkjet-refill-... Source(s): http://www.tonerguru.com

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 had my ink cartriges refilled at Costco and now the printer will not recognize them as full and will not print properly- I've tried all the trouble shooting options available- has anyone found a fix?


Hello, unfortunately, most makers of modern printers incorporate a chip into the cartridges so that you cannot refill them....well, saying that, you CAN refill them but they won't work as the chip tells the printer it's empty. Some refill companies make a chip resetter that you can buy, but they will only work on certain makes, and apparently you can't reset original HP cartridges. -but you can reset HP copies.(depends on make) Do a google search for your printer and include 'chip resetter'

Printer will not accept new cartridges. Printer is new and wants original cartridges to initialize ink system. Original cartridges are not availible. Tryed reset but did not work.


HP printers will not accept refilled cartridges. Are you trying to replace your empty cartridges with refilled cartridges? There is a computer chip in the ink cartridge that tells the printer when it is out of ink. If you try and refill it yourself, the printer will not recognize that it has been refilled without replacing the computer chip in it.

I think your printer is telling you that it needs HP brand cartridges that are original and not refilled cartridges. There is no way to "reset" an hp printer to get it to use an off brand or refilled cartridge that has not had the chip changed.

You can pick up a good refilled cartridge at a professional company who knows about changing the chip for less then a third of the regular price of an HP cartridge in a department store. However, HP does not want you to use refilled cartridges and should something go wrong with your computer and they find out that you were using them they will void your warranty on your printer.

If you are not trying to replace HP brand cartridges with refilled or off brand versions, I suggest your return them to where you bought them and exchange them. They may be defective cartridges.

Hope this helps?

Printer won't accept refilled cartage


I had a similar problem and i cleaned the chip on the cartridges several times, eventually mine accepted them and started working. I turned the printer on and off several times and re inserted the cartridges before i got mine to work. This happened everytime i needed to change the ink unless i used a brand new HP ink.

Once I went to the shop and got some refilled cartridges and one of them wouldnt work at all. I presumed the old ones i had taken in would be refilled but apparently not. Anyway the shop replaced the faulty one free of charge.

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.
