Recently I took out both my Printer ink cartridges to refill them and now I cannot put my cartridges into the printer. It seems like it is locked(the place where you put the cartridge in, seems to be blocked by something) and due to this, I cannot put the cartridges into the appropriate place.
I would like some help on how to solve this problem. I have searched through various sites and some have suggested that I unlock the cartridge entry by going into the system utilities. But I cannot find a way to get into it.
And once you turn on the printer in this state without the printer cartridges in place, it shows a "Insert Printer Cartridge" notification, so there is no way I can access the system utilities. Is there another way to unlock this, or do I have to fix this printer? I'am in Korea atm and there is no way I can get assistance in fixing this type of printer.
My printer type is: HP PSC 2410 All-In-One Ink Jet. Any type of assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hello, When you refill cartridges especially with manufactures such as Lexmark, HP, Cannon, etc. they put something on the bottom of the cartridge called a 'Smart Chip' this tells the printer how much ink is left, when the cartridge runs out of ink if you use that cartridge at all it tells the printer its out of ink. They do make devices to reset the Smart Chip but vary depending on the type of printer. The Smart Chips do wareout, and thus might give you a lot of problems, and all of this depends on the use of the cartridge.
you refilled or purchased a new cartridge? If you refilled ; did you do it after the printer told you it was out? The cartridge electricial would have to be reset. How to do that is a guarded secret for Canon. Buy a Canon One and replace Cartridge, would one on solution.
I fixed the problem by using original Canon ink cartridges and not getting them refilled. Apparently their chemists put a chemical in all of their inks so that only their Canon printers will recognize. It's a guarded trade secret that no one else knows about, unless it was analized. Other ink manufacturers produce ink that looks exactly as Canon ink, but that's where the similiarities end.
in the printer driver there is a option that whenever you install a new cartridge it has to be reset otherwise it shows the message the above you quoted. one more option is there that is change the chip of yellow cartridge and black, after doing this please whip circuits of the cartridge and printer carriage block before installing the cartridge
HP #74 Cartridge Refill Instructions Black cartridge
1. Put the cartridge on some paper towels in an area where you can tolerate a spill.
2. Peal off the top label.
3. Fill the syringe with 20ml. of black ink.
4. Very S-L-O-W-L-Y inject ink into any hole (they all go to the same sponge, HP just used the same color mold for the black ink cartridges).
5. When finished, replace the top label or leave it off (it will make no difference in the printing).
6. Replace the cartridge and run 1 - 3 cleaning cycles as per printer instructions. Or print the following pages: http://www.refillinstructions.com/black.htm for Black
For best results, leave cartridge in printer for 8 hours after refilling so the ink can saturate the entire sponge. A Refill Kit should include Ink plus the following: One 30cc Syringe
Sometimes the color bleeds over. Did you wipe down the contacts and clean the heads? Also, most of the cartridges have low ink sensors in the. Even if you have them refilled, they will still show as low ink. The only solution is to buy the new ones.... $$$$$$.
Sometimes refilling them over and over doesn't work well. Once ok...but i suggest that you buy a new cartridge. I know that they are expensive but it will help. Also take some Rubbing alchohol and a q-tip...clean inside where the cartridge sits..that will help...this is for sure a bad ink cartridge
