You should not refill this cartridge yourself if you want it to work. Sure you can get ink into it and replace the bearing, but you need to place the cartridge under a vacuum to pressurize the cartridge.

Error code 0x610000f6.. would this be related to refiled cartridges


Hi paschal karl

The error code you are seeing may or may not have to do with the cartridges being refilled.

Here's the thing, yes, you can refill your cartridges or use re manufactured cartridges, but you may run into problems.
QualityLogic, one of the world's foremost quality assurance organizations, tested the performance of HP inkjet print cartridges vs. re manufactured (refilled) brands. The results: original HP inkjet print cartridges far surpassed ink refills in both print quality and reliability.
  • Nearly one out of every six refilled ink cartridges tested was dead on arrival or failed prematurely
  • 70% of refilled cartridges had some form of reliability problem
Count on HP original ink cartridges for consistent, worry-free printing. You may think you're saving money on re manufactured or refilled ink cartridges, but in the long run, the cost of wasted time, ink, and paper can more than make up the difference. -Source
Most people think, 'well of course that is what HP or an HP representative would say', but I have done some research and found that many others have too. Here is a perfect example of somebody who does not work for HP in any way and basically is a customer advocate (in my opinion) ;Should you refill your printer's ink cartridges? HP says no (of course) By Matthew Murray
I found the above article interesting and genuine.

To summarize, again, yes you can refill the cartridges. The printer is not programmed to reject them. Sometimes the cartridges will not work and of course because they are non HP, HP would not be able to do anything to help. HP cartridges have a 2 year manufacture warranty;Limited Warranty for HP Ink Cartridges and Customer-Replaceable Printheads for HP Inkjet Supplies, this may give you comfort knowing HP stand behind their product.

Perhaps you will find the following document helpful:

I hope this helps.

Regarding your recent inquiry about the HP 45/78 printer error condition (i.e. improper print quality, etc'), it sounds like your cartridge's internal micro-electronics are either clogged or have electrically failed and will need to be replaced. NOTE: The HP 45/78/78+ ink cartridges are extremely robust (compared to many of the newer versions found in market today) and can typically be refilled 8+ times, on average, before suffering a hard internal electronic failure. To verify the electrical health of the ink cartridge, please perform the diagnostic checks below or refer to our HP printer diagnostics document: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1813

In some cases the ink cartridges just need to be FIRMLY re-seated into the carriage assembly (also check the cartridge restraining mechanism/arms if present - sometimes these mechanical restraints/arms become loose over time...please double-check these if applicable). We also suggest that you ensure the printer carriage/flex cables (where the cartridge interfaces to the carriage inside the printer) and ink cartridge rear electrical contacts are thoroughly clean to rule out poor connectivity as root cause: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1519

Cartridge & Printer maintenance should be evaluated:

Ensure both ink cartridges and flex cable contact surfaces (where the cartridge interfaces to the carriage inside the printer) are thoroughly clean: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1519

1) Gently blot the cartridge Nozzle Plate with a damp lint-free towel/wipe - a small amount of ink should be dispensed, and be visible, on the towel (all 3 colors should be present for a Tri-color cartridge).

2) If no ink is dispersed from nozzle plate (i.e. visible on towel) or ink cartridge completely fails to print on paper after installed in printer, then more drastic cartridge and printer cleaning steps will likely need to be performed to recover ink cartridge (NOTE: foam inside cartridge can dry out and become very hard - the foam must be moist with ink to function correctly (i.e. ink flows and wets the nozzle plate). Refer to 'clogged ink cartridge recovery' video here: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=2818

Providing the ink cartridges are clean, the problem may be caused by a dirty wiper blade or poor seal in the service station (capping station where the ink cartridges park when not in use) and this is causing the poor jetting / print performance issue you are observing. Remove the ink cartridges and thoroughly clean the wipers and seals: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1519



DIAGNOSTIC TESTS FOR HP Officejet and LX, Officejet 300 series, 700 series, T series, D series, K series, G series, V series, 4100 series, 5100 series, 6100 series, 7100 series PRINTER (HP 45/78 ink cartridges):

Perform Self Test Print: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&docname=bpu00734
1. On the front panel of the product, press Menu (or Setup).
2. Press the Right Arrow until Print Reports displays, and then press Enter, Start, or OK.
3. Press the Right Arrow until Self-Test Report displays, and then press Enter, Start, or OK.

NOTE: Unfortunately, alignment pages and internal self test prints will usually print Ok even if the cartridge is internally electrically damaged.

Perform Printer Error Reset:
1. Open the printer/cover as if replacing the cartridge and allow the carriage assembly to move to the cartridges access/loading position.
2. Unplug the power cable from the rear of printer and close the printer's cover.
3. While depressing the power button, plug in the power cable. Keep the power button pressed for about 10-15 seconds, allowing the error flag to reset.
4. After printer powers on, cycle printer power once again and allow printer to fully initialize (may take ~5 minutes for the message/error condition to disappear).
NOTE: If ink cartridge error persists then replace ink cartridge.

If procedure above does not work, then refer to HP.com to print a HP Self-Test Report (older HP printer models) - click here for instructions & sample prints: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&docname=bpu00734

*Many cartridges eventually do encounter problems or failures, especially after their original ink is gone and they are re-used, and this is often unrelated to the refill process. Typically the ink cartridge's nozzle plate suffers a break at one of the flexible circuit lines within the base of the cartridge nozzle plate...refer to photo at bottom of this page: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=509

However, if your printer works routinely after inserting a brand new HP 45 black or HP 78 color ink cartridge in it, this will confirm the root cause of failure.

We trust this detailed technical information provides you some additional insight into the issue you have endured.

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. We do NOT suggest refilling these types of ink cartridges.....refilling of original/genuine ink cartridges is only suggested!

If you need to purchase a new ink cartridge, we suggest you try a remanufactured HP 45/78/78+ ink cartridge from http://www.inkplicity.com/ as their ink cartridges typically have the lowest cost in the USA and reportedly have a high reliability rating (plus free shipping for all orders above $20).

Printing problems


If you don't use the printer often it is possible that the ink gets dried inside the cartridge, hence you get the print out with low quality or blurred. We suggest you to use original HP cartridges and keep using the cartridges frequently.
Thank you for using Fixya.

HP will tell you to never refill cartridges because they will not guarantee your printer will print properly with those refilled cartridges. If those refilled cartridges leak and cause damage to your printer HP will also not cover any repairs to the printer regardless of what sort of warranty coverage you have with them. Warranties only cover HP failures, not ones caused by using third-party or refilled ink cartridges. So, no it is not worth having the cartridges refilled - buy new HP-branded ones only.

Sounds like the printer thinks the cartridge is empty. Old PSC units had a 3 cartridge memory - you kept 3 cartridges and cycled them to trick the printer into thinking it had just received a brand new cartridge, rather than a refilled one.

Refilling HP 56 Cartridge


USING THIS TYPE OF REFILLS JUST ISN'T A GOOD IDEA. THE INK IS NOT THE SAME AS HP CARTRIDGE INK AND YOUR PRINTER WAS MADE FOR HP INK, NOT SOME GENERIC BRAND. THE FACT THAT IT DOESN'T WORK UNLESS YOU STICK IT IN WATER, ETC. SHOULD TELL YOU SOMETHING IS WRONG HERE. REFILLING IS MESSY, AND CAN CAUSE LEAKS IN YOUR PRINTER AND REALLY MESS THINGS UP. THE BEST BET IS TO USE THE PROPER INK CARTRIDGE WITH YOUR PRINTER. THATS THE TYPE OF INK IT WAS DESIGNED FOR.

Inkjet refills


hi,

as you are using a refilled cartridge, it is causing this problem. the thickness of ink in a hp genuine cartridge and a refilled cartridge varies. and also the refilled cartridge may make your printer faulty. so it is good to try with a new hp genuine ink cartridges.

thanks and regards
