I've refilled the ink cartridge & have not been able to decent copying quality since. I've clean the cartridge a number of times & still get broken copy. When I took the cartridge back to the vendor they told me there were no problems with it. Is there a setting I'm missing or a way to align heads, etc. Please advise.
Re: I've refilled the ink cartridge & have not been able...
If you are using refills the first thing i would do is take them out and buy originals as when you get them refilled that all they do is refill them. they do not replace the printhead which seems to be the problem you have
you can also scroll through the menu to clean and algin printhead

The ink cartridges should notbe reset or reused, rregardless ofwwhat some refill places tell you they are made for a single use & refilled ccartridges frequently leak or clog the lines in the meter.
If you are referringto the waste ink ttan, that can be reset using the tech code 6946 then press refill ppostag, go thru the menu todiagnostics, printer, page down & rreplace waste tank & reset. ONLY DO THIS IF YOU ACTUALLY REPLACE THE WASTE TANK.
Regarding your HP Officjet Pro 8600 printer and refilled HP 950/951 ink cartridges and the "low ink" messages. Depending on your ink refiller (or if you did it yourself?), a replacement chip may or may not have been installed with the recently refilled cartridge(s). Refer to picture on our support site to first determine which type of cartridge configuration you have, then refer to the applicable section to address the current cartridge error(s) or printer issues. http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1999
NOTE: Costco USA's Ink Refill service now 'chips' all refilled ink cartridges which fully restores all functions to that of a regular HP (OEM) ink cartridge and customer experience. For USA ink refill store locations and details on ink refill pricing:
Refer to Section A if your refiller attached a new replacement chip (green in color) onto the cartridge. Refer to Section B if only the original HP chip is attached.
CAUTION: Be advised, the use of compatible/clone cartridges (i.e. sold thru the internet from China) are known to be problematic and may cause printer errors and/or permanent PRINTHEAD failures (due to incompatible ink formulations). We do NOT suggest refilling these types of ink cartridges.....refilling of original/genuine ink cartridges is only suggested! HP original/genuine ink cartridges can be identified by the visible HP logo on the front label of the cartridge.
Many cartridges DO NOT respond well to being refilled, and if you don't use a manufacturers ink cartridge. And if you don't you will get that message.
Sometimes you can reset the "Chip" in the cartridge, yes, there is one in there too, especially so it cannot be refilled by a third party,
There is NO simple way around this, "They" want you to buy NEW inks each time, and NOT refill, it sux huh?

The Canon Faxphone L80 takes a Canon FX3 cartridge. To get the highest quality refill I would first see if there is a Cartridge World store in your area. Cartridge World stores refill most cartridges in house with American made parts. Then try Office Depot. Office Depot is the only big box store that actually "remanufactures" toner cartridges. I would not recommend cheap refills or refill kits from the internet. Many use very low quality toner that wears on parts leading to print defects or they reuse parts that already generate print defects. DO NOT buy a "compatible" cartridge, these are not refills. They are new cartridge replicas and have no recycled components.
Yes, some have a chip on the cartrige unit, they cannot be reset.
Buy a new unit.
Sometimes using competitve ink in this machine can cause other problems.
The copies are light with background and with streaks, also sometimes the toner might be spilling below the developer housing or copy cartrige unit.
You can also put the machine in serves mode by unplugging the power from the machine, press both the the copy/help and the stop buttons at the same time, hold them and plug back the power until you see TF662B service mode.This also works well with refill cartridges.
