Regarding your HP Officjet Pro 8600 printer and refilled HP 950/951 ink cartridges and the "low ink" messages. Depending on your ink refiller (or if you did it yourself?), a replacement chip may or may not have been installed with the recently refilled cartridge(s). Refer to picture on our support site to first determine which type of cartridge configuration you have, then refer to the applicable section to address the current cartridge error(s) or printer issues. http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1999
NOTE: Costco USA's Ink Refill service now 'chips' all refilled ink cartridges which fully restores all functions to that of a regular HP (OEM) ink cartridge and customer experience. For USA ink refill store locations and details on ink refill pricing:
Refer to Section A if your refiller attached a new replacement chip (green in color) onto the cartridge. Refer to Section B if only the original HP chip is attached.
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 and/or permanent PRINTHEAD failures (due to incompatible ink formulations). We do NOT suggest refilling these types of ink cartridges.....refilling of original/genuine ink cartridges is only suggested! HP original/genuine ink cartridges can be identified by the visible HP logo on the front label of the cartridge.
It comes with four refills. Each of the refill has a narrow end and the flat end. Step 1 : Push the Cap out of the pen body with slight force. Step 2: Unscrew the upper part of the pen body by rotating the top part(grooved one) which hold the nib and the bottom part in anticlockwise direction Step 3: Take the refill cartridge and snap fit the narrow part of the cartridge to the nib part of the body . Push until the cartridge fits tightly. Step 4: Screw the body back in clockwise direction. Step 5 : On the brass nib gently rub with your finger until the ink starts flowing. Step 6: Write on the paper with gentle force on the nib and its all done.
Remarks: There is also a pump with an empty cartridge which is provided. You can use it to suck ink form a regular fountain pen ink bottle and then fit the whole assembly. You can use regular ink with this technique.
Many cartridges DO NOT respond well to being refilled, and if you don't use a manufacturers ink cartridge. And if you don't you will get that message.
Sometimes you can reset the "Chip" in the cartridge, yes, there is one in there too, especially so it cannot be refilled by a third party,
There is NO simple way around this, "They" want you to buy NEW inks each time, and NOT refill, it sux huh?
