Hello. I have HP photosmart C5180 and I only need black colour to print some documents, I bought the original HP ink, but my printer says that I need to change expired colours too (pink, blue, cyan...) but...


Your model is a Inkjet printer working on HP TIJ 4.0 technology4. So it cannot work with one valid cartridge. You have to replace all of them to make you printer to work. This is what HP advices and highly recommends.

The Ink cartrdige can be bypassed only in Laserjet printers

My Epson NX415 does not recognize refilled and reset cartridges. What can I do about it?


Don't let your ink levels drop below 25% before refilling and resetting your cartridges. There is an inner and an outer chip on these cartridges. The inner chip disables the outer chip when it's contacts are no longer bathed in ink. So, it doesn't matter if you "reset" the outer chip after refilling your empty cartridge because the chip was disabled. I'm really curious how you refilled these cartridges yourself without souring yourself on refilling from the experience. I own a Cartridge World ink refilling store and I refilled a set of these cartridges when we had replacement chips available (we don't now because our chip distributor was violating Epson patents) and it was an absolute mess, took forever, and the cartridges still didn't work in our test printer.

Check status monitor? See difference of chip reach ink out and not recognized. Reset chip that ink level reach ink out. Also check chip connector at ink tank and at chip itself. Plug ink tank securely. Check status monitor again. If still not resolved, try to use anither chip.

Black Ink shows empty even after installing on HP Photosmart 3210


These cartridges are really only ik resovoirs for the printer. It does have an ink flow sensor, though. If the printer does not recognize the ink level, it is possible that you got a cart with a bad chip. I refill these alot, and all you can really do is check the chip on the cart and make sure nothing is on the contacts...otherwise replace. A good step would be to put the old cart in and see what happens...

Lexmark X2600 refill problem


many printer manufacturers put something (a chip?) in the circuit of the cartridge to prevent refilled ones from being recognized by the printer....when the "factory" cartridge is empty, the only way for the printer to see a full cartridge again is by using a "new" factory one, ...i guess it's the big name brands way of making sure you buy "their" ink and not use refulls.
