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?

How do I reset HP officejet 6700 Premium ink cartridges


!Ahh, this is a little tricky but I have found the best way is to wait until after normal business hours so the printer is not expecting anything.

Then sneak around behind the printer and throw a blanket over it so that I can't see whats happening, open the ink tray and remove the empty cartridge while getting out an original ink cartridge box.

This is the trick - Secretly put the refill in place of the expended original cartridge!

As you pull the blanket (or whatever you surprised your printer with) off the printer, walk away muttering how expensive printer ink is and throw the empty original cartridge in the rubbish.

Your printer should now be completely fooled into thinking it has a new original cartridge!

After refilling my cartridge it shows ink level low for one cartridge and gives two error messages for every printing but prints. But for another cartridge it does not print and give message to buy a new...


Original Printer manufacturers do not recommend refilling in cartridges.
Different inks used in different cartridges differ in density, color, acidity etc. Usually refilling ink is made as universal ink. i.e. They produce the ink for 'any printer'.
The differences in the original and refiling inks might lead to the printer not recognizing the ink level.
Either buy a new cartridge or just ignore the messages.

Ink cartridge isn't being read by printer. What can i do to fix it?


Is it a new original cartidge? Does it have a chip ? If it is a new original take it back to the store and they will replace it, if it is a refilled or aftermarket cartridge, chances are the printer will not accept it unless you can get a chip kit for it, these items will fool the printer into accepting the cartridge but they can be problematic!

My printer will not accept the ink cartridges I have bought because they are not from lexmark it is showing error1203 how do I get around this?


Possible that the ink cartridges are not meshing along with the contacts. Hence the original is important to get the ink cartridges to contact.
Remove and set back the cartridges, if possible remove the printer and reinstall after removing the driver software. If this wont work the original cartridge must be sourced.

Replaced ink in printer with generic ink cartridges and error message 1203 came up.


A person might notice that buying new, name brand, ink cartridge for printer rapidly becomes quite an expenditure. Nonetheless, there are quite a lot of different methods to find the equal quality standard for a alot lower price. Your primary options are: name brand (OEM) ink cartridge for printer, matching generic ink printer cartridges or remanufactured ink printer cartridges.
When you are purchasing a replacement photo printer cartridge, consumers do have choices. It’s frequently assumed that shoppers are required to buy the expensive, name brand, cartridge for laser printer from the manufacturer, or the service contract will become void. Their belief merely is not correct. By law, the use of compatible replacement inkjet printer cartridges does not render null and void the printer makers guarantee. In truth, you can choose to get less pricey compatible cartridge for laser printer, or remanufactured cartridges, often with a realized savings of between 40% and 75%. All chief ink laser printer cartridge brands have matching versions, including IBM, and Xerox.

Name Brand Inkjet Cartridge for Laser Printer
Nearly all major makers of laser printers also create the replacement inkjet printer cartridges that are best matched for their particular laser printers. This option is ordinarily the most expensive, and in a lot of situations it is the lone choice available if you happen to get a new laser printer whose producer implanted computer chips in the ink printer cartridge. The point of this chip may possibly be to regulate the color ink flow, limit the cartridges use, or to standardize the cartridge in alignment. Nevertheless, if you pick out a similar, or remanufactured, cartridge for laser printer, it might not be able to interconnect with the laser printer and may harm the laser copier or cause it to quit working.

Comparable Generic Inkjet Cartridge for Laser Printer
When thinking about purchasing an ink printer cartridge for your laser printer, the key aspect you must to bear in mind is the price. Buying a brand new ink laser printer cartridge will be based upon how much you are prepared to give. You can buy a new brand name cartridge for printer, or you might purchase a new compatible (generic) ink printer cartridge. Both types of ink printer cartridges might provide you with the same quantity, quality and performance you insist on from your printer. The major difference is in cost: a brand name ink printer cartridge might easily cost nearly twice the price of a compatible cartridge for printer.
Compatible (generic) inkjet laser printer cartridges are made to meet OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) specs. These makers usually set very lofty standards of dependability and quality and also provide high quality results, regularly exceeding the quality specifications established by the OEM. These cartridge for printer are produced with new parts and are a lower priced option to costly name brand ink printer cartridges.
Buyers might also be surprised to see that the generic comparable cartridge will publish the same amount of, or more, pages than the original OEM cartridge. Largely, this is since certain original OEM ink laser printer cartridges are not filled all the way up. In this situation, a compatible ink cartridge for printer could give you twice the advantage: it reduces your price per cartridge and cost per page by printing additional pages

My printer wont accept my coloured ink cartridge


Is it the new original cartrigde colour or not ? If yes, you should ask a guarantee from the seller.
There is a chip inside the cartridge, sometimes it doesn't compatible for the printer software to read the chip.
The printer will keep asking for the new one if there is no ink in the cartridge.

My D145 HP all in one Officejet doesn't recognise new colour cart


hi penned2you, when you say that you have installed new colour cartridge, is it a new refilled cartridge or an original from the manufacturer? cause if it is refilled then most of the time depending on the level of ink that was in it... the printer will not accept it, when you say you have tried different ones, do you mean different empties that were in there before? cause if it is then the printer will not accept them either. to get them to be accepted you have first know that the printer stores 3 cartridges in memory and so you have to let it read for eg. the colour catridge #i, then #2 then #3, after cartidge #3 is inserted then colour #1 will now be accepted. the same goes for the black if you're using original cartridges then these steps dont apply... the only thing i know of to rectify the problem is to clean the printer cartridge contacts and then cleaning the carriage contacts. if done correctly it should work. if not then give me some more info on your situation, casue i would suspect that the printer itself maybe damaged (if it is infact you have inserted more than one different new original cartridges) if these intructions helped in any way please rate it and also to let me know how it turns out.
thanx
bye
