If problem is what I think it is (that is if you cleaned whole thing and it is connected proprely), you have only one option. To buy at least three cartridges...problem is due a small trick made by HP. Printer remembers at least two cartridge serial numbers, and then wont accept refilled ones. But if you first stick one, then the other, and on the end the third one(only this one should be really full) it should reset printer and it should foul it to accept it. But on some printers it needs up to five cartridges! What a waste of money :( Anyway, hope this helps...

SOURCE: refilling ink cartridges
HP #74 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:

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

You cannot reset the ink level indicator for the HP 60 ink cartridge. It shouldn't matter anyway because the level is only estimated for "management purposes only" (see user manual) meaning to let you know when it's near time to order a new cartidge. I have tried cycling through 3 different cartridges to reset the ink level for the one I refilled but it didn't work. Refill and just ignore the ink level indicator. Also, it's a good idea to clean the print heads with the solvent in the refill kit before refilling to remove old ink and imrpove print quality.

The ink cartridge is most likely chipped & you would not be able to reset the ink level. Purchase an original or a good compatible cartridge. Refiling newer cartridges is not a good idea.

When you get an HP
integrated ink cartridge refilled (i.e. HP 60, 61, 74, 75, 901,
92-98....currently offered at Costco today) or if you buy a
remanufactured/compatible HP ink cartridge, the ink levels cannot be reset (HP
has a smart chip embedded within the nozzle plate at base of ink cartridge
which counts the drops and then registers as empty).....so you'll just need to
live with it and ignore 'ink low', 'non-genuine', 'counterfeit' messages and
similar while you are using these types of aftermarket supplies. The first
video below provides an overview of the 'low ink' phenomena, the 2nd video provides suggested cartridge prep/handling instructions when you return the cartridge for refilling:

If the new (or
refilled/reman/compatible) HP 74, 75, 74XL, or 75XL ink cartridge refuses to
complete the printer alignment following cartridge installation, then the ink
cartridge either has a connectivity issue with the flexible printed circuit
cable (inside unit where cartridge mates with cable), rear cartridge contacts
or cable contacts are dirty with ink residue, or the cartridge is suffering
from marginal internal electrical performance. If you run into a problem where the ink cartridge is performing marginally and blocks printing (via the Red X), you can bypass the error message (usually only 1 time per clearing action):

These types of severe cartridge errors (i.e. "refer to documentation" / "incompatible cartridges", "print cartridge(s) problem", etc.) typically indicates the internal micro-electronics of the HP #74/75 cartridge are damaged. The cartridge's electrical wire runs at rear and lower side of the ink cartridge, are very delicate and are somewhat susceptible to ink attack over time, which can lead to premature failures. In addition, the older the cartridge the higher the chance of an internal electrical failure. You can also run a 'Tap 41' diagnostic test to check cartridges electrical health (this is a forced test).....go to www.inkjet411.com for more information on your specific printer model.

The types of 'more severe' cartridge
errors (i.e. "refer to documentation" / "incompatible cartridges", etc.), including blinking power/exclamation lights, typically indicate the internal micro-electronics of the HP #60-61 cartridge
are electrically damaged. The cartridge's electrical wire runs at rear and
lower side of the ink cartridge, are very delicate and are somewhat susceptible
to ink attack over time, which can lead to premature failures. In addition, the
older the cartridge the higher the chance of an internal electrical failure due
to prolonged ink exposure and subsequent circuit corrosion. I suggest you
always run a 'Tap 41' diagnostic test to check cartridges electrical health
(this is a forced test); you may also bypass the error (temporarily) on C4600-C4700
models which use HP 60 cartridges. Refer to Inkjet411 youtube videos below:
