Cartridges expired (but full) and it will not let me copy

How do I get around this. They are expired, but I hate to replace them as they are full. I have to use the copier, which is about all I actually use it for. I will NEVER NEVER buy another HP product as long as I live.
Do you know how I can get it to copy without replacing the color cartridges? I tried taking them out altogether as all I need right now is the black but that didn't help either.
Thank you so much.

    Nope Kathy that didn't work either. It just locks up and will not let you use it no matter what. Even taking the cartridges out altogether didn't work. Thanks anyway for your suggestion.

    Setting date back allows printing with old cartridges. Look at date printed on side of old cartridge. Set date back to same year. Messes up fax date, but that is only downside, I can think of. Press Menu button, scroll to and select Maintenance then select Set Date and Time. I can't get old or new color cartridges to print though. Black prints fine, colors no. I tried cleaning print heads. I don't want to go to the expense of replacing print heads. Cleaning print heads did not work. Until now, I was a faithful HP buyer. No more. They had a customer for life, now they lost 'em.

    I have the same problem. On someone else's suggestion, I reset the date on my printer to one year earlier. Now the printer will print again, but in black only. The color cartridges are all full, but I'll be darned if I can get any color to come out of them. Well, at least I can print black again, but if anyone knows how to get the printer to print from the (full) color cartridges, I would be grateful.

Reset the time on the printer, to do this by
holding down the up and down arrow keys
this will take you to the maint section, scroll
down to the date and time section, back the dates up to before those of the ink cart. accept "yes" using the left right arrow, wait
for print to cycle the date. turn power off and then on ,,this should clear error and allow to print,,sky5031

Could you try selecting print in black only in the HP printer properties. This might help.

Hi there,

Check the settings of your printer, either in the software that came with it or the printing preferences in the Control Panel. If your ink tone is set too dark, it could be using a lot of ink. If this is not the case, then:

1) Clean the ink cartridges
2) Replace the ink cartridges as they may have expired. 3) Replace the printer and find one which uses cartridges that can perform more copies in a single fill.

Bypass expired message cartridge. Cartridge is less than six months old & nearly full.


Every cartridge will have its own ID and Expiry date, please check the Cartridge expiry date, if its really expired then printer will reject it even-though the cartridge is full.

We cannot bypass cartridge errors for single cartridge in INK-JET printer, because they work in TIJ technology (Thermal Ink Jet) which needs all cartridges to be functional unlike Laser-jet printers.

The ink cartridges keep expiring and they are nearly all full .my machine is a hp photo smart 3310 all in one.How do i by pass the expiry dates on cartridges

Each ink cartridge has an expiration date to protect the printing system and ensure good ink quality. The cartridge expire date appears on line 53 of the self test report.Printing can continue without replacing the ink cartridge. Follow the instructions that appear on the HP product or on the computer. However, HP recommends replacing the expired ink cartridges. HP cannot guarantee the quality or reliability of expired ink cartridges. Service or repairs required as a result of using expired ink are not covered under warranty
As the printer operates, it moves ink from the ink cartridges into a printhead reservoir. The printer does not deliver a message when an ink cartridge goes empty, because it still has ink in the reservoir. The printer continues printing until the ink level in the reservoir falls to a first trigger point - then a message appears advising the printer owner to Replace Cartridges Soon . At this point, other cartridges that are empty but have not reached the trigger point are also mentioned in the message, to save trips to the retailer. After the first trigger point, the printer can continue printing until ink levels in the reservoir reach a second trigger point. At the second trigger point there is only enough ink left to perform vital servicing tasks, and a new message appears, saying Ink Cartridges Empty . The options offered depend on the usable inks remaining. If no options are offered, the cartridges indicated must be replaced before printing can continue. Reset the product
  1. Without turning off the product, disconnect the USB cable from the rear of the product. NOTE: The USB cable connects to the port on the back of the product. The port is labeled with the USB icon (c01424575.gif ).
  2. Remove the cartridges from the product.
  3. Wait for the 'Insert Cartridges ' message to display on the control panel.
  4. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the product.
  5. Wait 60 seconds.
  6. Reconnect the power cord. If the product does not automatically turn on, press the Power button .
  7. Reinsert the cartridges, and then close any open doors on the product.
  8. If you receive a prompt to print a calibration page, do so.
  9. Reconnect the USB cable to the rear of the product, and then try printing again.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response.

Thanks, Joe

Magenta Ink Cartridge Has Expired, showing this error message? still my catridge is 95% full. Give any solution pls

If you only just purchased your cartridge I would suggest you return the cartridge for an exchange. Unfortunatelty when a cartridge has expired the date is set inside the cartridges chip and so far I have not come up with a way to get around it. You will need to replace the cartridge with a new one.

Printer has not been used for 2 yrs. I use it to make copies.

I'm sorry. The printer needs both cartridges (which holds the ink) and printheads (which distributes the ink) as well as the scanner to copy a page for you, since even copying is a print job.

Color not printing

If you are making copies or sending/receiving faxes Press Black Start or Color Start. Make sure your ink cartridges are fresh. Cartridges remain fresh for up to two years if kept in their original packaging, after that the ink may become clogged. Cartridge expiration dates are printed on the package.
