Refilled my hp officejet 6500 but the printer shows empty cartrages, should I do something with the chip?


What Chip?
The ink volume usually is controlled by the software that comes with the printer....You may want to re-install the software that came with the computer first.

How to check ink level on printer cartridges for aa HP F2430 printer?


Press and hold the power and the cancel buttons together and it would print a sheet which would show the estimated ink levels or go to an icon on your computer named Solution center and at the bottom of that screen click on settings>printer toolbox>estimated ink levels

My computer will not reconize the ink cartriges in my printer


Read on and see if any applies to you.
Check that you removed the protective tape. some cartridges have two of these pieces of tape one over the head and possibly on on the contacts to the printer.

If you recently re-filled or had the cartridge refilled or even bought one of the many cheaper replacement cartridges you should read on

Most modern cartridges have an ink level chip built on to them.
Should the level drop below 25% then most of these chips lock up and will not reset.

Re-filling them will have no effect

If you are lucky you should be able to find either a
chip resetter around on the INTERNET or maybe even local

OR

Even better empty cartridges that
never need to be reset.
The second option is my preference

I realise these are not for your specific printer but there are others listed on both those sites as well.

cheaper cartridge problems have been on the rise recently and that is for ALL makes of printer.
If you try to clean the contacts be VERY careful cleaning contacts and ONLY use isopropynol on a lint free bud or cloth.
Also be very gentle.

I have seen the contacts cleaned and cartridges ruined with other methods of cleaning.
Rubbing too hard can also cause a badly set chip to move making it inoprable.

I dont like full prices replacements either which is why I always provide the links
I usually reccomend that people take back any cartridge that does not work right from the get-go.

I dont know of anyone who has had a problem doing that be it a shop refill or otherwise.

No matter if I paid $1 or $100 for a cartrdige I would still expect it to work

I have a F-4210 Deskjet printer (HP) that was working properly ,and the ink level is well above the half mark when suddenly it stoped printing and indicated that it was a incompatible cartridge.?


This is the type of problem that occurs with aftermarket cartridges. If it is an aftermarket cartridge, I would replace the cartridge giving the false reading. The best solution is to use and OEM cartridge to clear the problem.
If you can, take the balking cartridge back to the vendor and get a replacement.

How do I check levels of ink on my HP Photosmart c6300 all in one. Thank You CJ


There are two ways to do this:
Method 1 Check the back of your computer to make sure that the printer is appropriately connected to the computer and is plugged in. If the printer is not plugged into the computer, find the printer jack on the back of the computer and plug it in before you move on to the next step.Click on the "Start" menu button which is located on bottom left hand corner of your screen. Click on the "Settings" bar and notice that a list of functions pop up to the left of the settings button. Click on the control panel icon.Look for the printer/fax icon in the control panel window. Double click on the printer icon.Find the icon for your printer in the opened window and right click on the icon. Now click on the "Preferences" option.Look for the menu box pop up with tabs near the top of the box. Click on the "Services" tab.Click on "Service this device." You will find the button on the Services menu that you just activated.Click on the estimated ink level tab and a graphic will appear indicating how much ink is left in the cartridge.OR Method 2 Click Start and select HP Solution Center . Select the Settings menu, then the Print Settings submenu, and finally the Printer Toolbox .
The Printer Toolbox opens. Click the Estimated Ink Level tab. A cartridge may be running out of ink even if the graphic shows ink remaining (see the note at the start of this section). Lines or streaks always appear in printouts when the cartridges begin to run out of ink. Replace print cartridges that are out of ink or low on ink. Figure 1: Estimated ink levelsc00677193.gif

H P psc 2210 printer will not accept ink cartridges have used from this supplier in the past with no problems display reads "remove and check cartridge" this I have done but no cure.


Are you using cartridges that have been refilled? If so I would go buy brand new HP ink cartridges or I would find known working but used cartridges and try again. The ink cartridges on any inkjet type printer are not made to be refilled and if you were to call HP about this problem they would tell you to replace the ink cartridges with new ones and try again.
