Hp psc1610 all-in-one after market ink cartridge problem

My printer will not accept the after-market ink cartridges that I bought. I get a variety of messages that involve re-alignment, removing the cartridge etc, but the printer either double prints or stops working and asks for another alignment. I realise from research on the Internet that HP has built this into the cartridge software to insure you buy their ink. But I have already bought a box of spectrum ink cartridges that won't work. Unless there is a simple fix, I would rather get another SMALL printer that will accept after market inks. Can you recommend one?

    The original Hp cartridge and the Spectrum replacement both have the same numbers
    The black cartridge (94) is C8765W

    The Tricolor (95) C8766WN

    A better idea would be to reuse the cardridges and fill them yourself.



    Need to know more about the inks you have bought to get you a model where they would work.

Hello misterbarrym

What you say is quite correct. Most of the major companies like Canon, HP and Epson resort to these tactics these days. It is always safer to buy genuine inks rather that refilled or generic cartridges.

If you wish to buy a lower end printer that accepts generic inks, you can try something from the Lexmark stable or the older Canon BJC inkjet series (although they are a bit slow compared to more recent standards). Or you can try refurbished laser printers from HP

Or you can go in for the Kodak printers. I believe they are coming out with cheaper inks akin to generic inks. See HERE for a review article..

Hope that helps!

    As for the box of spectrum cartridges, you can try offloading it on eBay. However, they are supposed to work ok without problems on the Canon brand of printers. See HERE..

What color and black and white cartridges should I use for a HP Photosmart 1115 printer?


It looks like your Photosmart 1115 printer uses an HP45 black ink cartridge and an HP78 tri-color cartridge. Some HP printers will accept re-manufactured ink carts, while other HP printers will not...just so you know. I've always bought genuine HP ink cartridges on eBay to save $$$.

My Hp officejet 6110 printer does not want to accept a re-filled ink cartridge. Why? Can this problem be fixed? How? It only wants to accept new cartridges and I know that the stores want to sell new...


Who refilled the ink-cartridge?
If you did it, then you need to "reset" the electronics inside the ink-cartridge, to indicate to the printer that it is a "new" cartridge, and not the same "empty" cartridge.

When you say "does not accept", EXACTLY what error-message do you get?

I have a HP Photosmart C3180 that I bought in the US and now trying to install UK cartridges, but it tells me that the cartridge is incorrect. How do I re-set the printer to accept the UK cartridges?


The reason behind this is the regionalization capability of your product. The printer sets its region/zone after printing a few pages with a particular ink cartridge, once the region/zone is set, the printer would only recognize ink cartridges that are bought from the region/zone it's set to. You can click on the link to determine the compatible cartridges that you may use with your printer.

Only certain cartridges are compatible with your product. This document lists compatible cartridges by country/region. Use one of the following methods to check which cartridges are compatible with your product.Click on the link below for more information.

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?

I HAVE AN HP PHOTOSMART C6280 ALL-IN-ONE PRINTER BROUGHT OVER FROM THE U.S.A. 3 OF THE INK CARTRIDGES ARE EMPTY AND I HAVE REPLACED THEM, BUT NOT WITH HP INK. THE MESSAGE ON THE SCREEN IS SAYING THE INK...


Hi,
As the printer was bought in the US the printer is meant to use the #02 cartridges.

When you decided to replace the empty cartridges with refilled ones…the place you took them to be refilled more than likely decided to replace the little chip with a local flavour, which attempt to mimic original HP cartridges #363 (or what ever the number of those cartridges is where you are now). Hence now they are rejected by your printer.

But because the printer is only designed to use #02 cartridges it will reject every other cartridge/chip that do not have an #02 programmed into them….

You could try to call HP and explain them your situation and see if they can help you reset your printer to accept a different cartridge number …

Cheers.

Ink display will not reset upon installation of new ink cartridges


POSSIBLE PROBLEM: In the passed, whenever I installed ink cartridge in a HP, the computer inside the printer audits the cartridge(s), and if it isn't or wasn't HP Brand cartridge(s), it wouldn't accept or recognize the cartridge(s). I hope this helps.

Ink cartridge cannot be used after initialization


The following are common issues.

The following ink cartridges cannot be used after device initialization and must be replaced

Cause The wrong ink cartridge(s) are installed.
Solution The indicated ink cartridge(s) cannot be used after the device has undergone first time setup. Replace the ink cartridge(s) with the appropriate ink cartridges for the HP All-in-One. To find out the reorder number for all the ink cartridges that the HP All-in-One supports, see the printed documentation that came with the HP All-in-One.
If you are using compatible cartridges make sure they are reset for use.


Ink cartridge problem
Cause The indicated ink cartridge(s) are missing or are damaged.
Solution Replace the indicated ink cartridge(s) immediately so that you can resume printing. If there are no ink cartridges missing from the HP All-in-One, the ink cartridge contacts might need to be cleaned. If there are no ink cartridges missing from the HP All-in-One, and you still receive this message after cleaning the ink cartridge contacts, you might have a damaged ink cartridge.
