Tip

Upgrade your printer and continue to refill your own ink cartridges


I just had my HP 8600 document feeder fail. This problem part cannot be ordered for replacement, and to have it repaired will cost almost $200. Well a brand new one on sale is only $250. And better yet, upgrade to the HP Officejet Pro 8630, since HP will no longer be manufacturing the 8600.

I have saved hundreds of dollars, refilling my own cartridges. I upgraded, after I learned that the newer model uses the exact same ink cartridges. So, I am on my third HP Printer, and I have purchased only one set of cartridges in 3 years. I have refilled my color cartridges at least 8 times. They need refilling more frequently than the black. (The black ink cartridge is twice the size.)

In addition, I purchased a three year extended warranty for $20 or $30. If anything happens to this printer in that time, it will be replaced automatically, and I will not have to pay for shipping.

In essence, I am in position to have used the same set of ink cartridges for 6 years. I only put my new cartridges in after I have refilled the empties. After the printer resets, I pull them out and put in the refills. So you see, my printer came with a set of cartridges, and I purchased one extra set, for resetting the printer after refilling the cartridges.

I suggest to really control your costs, consider buying a quality printer, that will be good for years of service, add a service contract, and refill your own cartridges. If you print as much as I do, you are realize a significant savings in the cost of ink.

I know that I have saved a minimum of $360. Add the cost of inconvenience and going to Walmart for refills, and you may be realizing a savings of $150 per year, just for refills.

Good luck, and plan ahead.

Hp 8600 missing or damaged print cartridge how to fix?


If you observe the error message "One of more ink cartridges may be missing or damaged", "Cartridge Damaged", or "Ink Cartridge Failure", "The following cartridges are not intended for use in this Printer", etc. then the printer is not recognizing the installation of the refilled ink cartridge(s) or 'smart chip' which is affixed to the rear side of ink cartridge is causing the detection issue. This type of issue can also be caused by a bent pin on the PRINTHEAD assembly or one (or more) electrical contacts are dirty on the PRINTHEAD assembly (especially if the same error occurs with a brand new HP ink cartridge). Typically, the problem is usually an incompatible smart chip which is affixed to the rear-side of the ink cartridge.

(1) It is first suggested you remove the respective ink cartridge from the printer and thoroughly clean the cartridge's smart chip's gold contacts/electrical surfaces using an isopropyl dampened lint-free towel. Ensure no ink residue is present on surface of the chip. Also ensure the chip is located in the proper position. Please refer to the 2nd photo on the following Inkjet411 support page - carefully inspect chip position to ensure it was properly placed: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1999 Following cartridge 'smart chip' gold contact cleaning, please re-install the ink cartridge and retest.

(2) Remove PRINTHEAD from printer and inspect for damage to contact pin(s) on the INSIDE OF THE PRINTHEAD ASSEMBLY. Please refer to printhead removal procedure below for reference. Often, you can gently bend the pin back into position to correct the issue.

SPECIAL NOTE FOR BRAND NEW HP PRINTER MODELS (temporary issue until approx. mid to late August 2014):
If you continue to observe "One of more ink cartridges may be missing or damaged" alert messages, please note that printer firmware versions CKP5CN1334ER for the newer HP Office jet Pro 8100 and 8600 printer series (manufactured after Nov./Dec. 2013) do not allow the replacement chip to function (this problem temporarily impacts brand new HP printers only -- this problem will be resolved sometime in June 2014 with the release of upgraded smart chips to all Costco stores which will work in the newer printer models).

Confirm if your printer is impacted:

1. Verify 8100/8600 printer firmware - print the PRINTER STATUS REPORT or PRINT QUALITY DIAGNOSTIC page to verify your firmware version.
2. To print the printer status report, on the printer control panel, press and hold the (Cancel) button for three seconds (i.e. 8100 models). Alternatively, you can print either of the reports from the TOOLS menu if this does work.....OR.......
3. Check 'Product Information' - 'Firmware Version'
a. CKP5CN1334ER for the HP Office jet Pro 8100 and 8600 printer series
b. If your printer has this printer firmware version, then you may be impacted.

If the error message persists then we suggest you return the cartridge(s) to your refiller and request to have the 'smart chip' (attached to cartridge) replaced with a new chip*. If Costco does not have the NEW CHIP VERSIONS yet, then request a refund for the refill purchase.
----

However, if the same problem occurs with a 2nd cartridge (or manufacturer's brand new ink cartridge) then the PRINTHEAD may either have ink on the internal electrical surfaces (where cartridge mates to it) or the PRINTHEAD may have a bent or deformed contact pin. Remove PRINTHEAD from printer and inspect for damage to contact pin(s) on the INSIDE OF THE PRINTHEAD ASSEMBLY. Refer to printhead removal procedure below for reference. Often, you can bend the pin back into position to correct the issue.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&docname=c02871867

You should also ensure the EXTERNAL electrical contacts on PRINTHEAD are clean of any ink residue. Clean with damp towel to remove residue. Refer to the 5th photo on the following Inkjet411 support page: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1999

ADDITIONAL ERROR MESSAGES / NOTES:

2. An "Ink Cartridge Depleted" message can be observed (printer will cease print operations) when an ink cartridge 'really is' out of ink. HP has small sensors which look into the bottom of the ink tank to ensure ink is present. Typically you will receive 'Low Ink Warning' messages just before this occurs.

3. Since the printer monitors ink usage/drop counts, it will display the 'Ink Sensor Warning' messages when it 'predicts' the cartridge should be out of ink, but these messages can be temporarily ignored and you may continue printing. Eventually the 'Cartridge(s) Depleted' alert message will be displayed when the cartridge truly is out of ink.

4. The "Use Color Ink Only" or "Use Black Ink Only" messages can be caused by poor contact (i.e. electrical connectivity) between the ink cartridge's 'smart chip' and the carriage assembly (which the ink cartridge plugs into). Typically a 'Red X' will also be displayed on printer control panel LCD or Window's pop-up screen when this condition is present.


*This type of error may be caused an electrically damaged 'smart chip' which is affixed to the rear side of the cartridge itself, a mis-aligned chip (wrong position), an incorrect replacement chip type (i.e. operator installed the wrong chip on for that color and/or tank size). In most case the cartridge will need to have a new replacement chip installed by the refill operator. We apologize for the inconvenience if either of these possibilities prove to be the root cause. For more information on chip placement, refer to Section A on the following Inkjet411 support page: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=913


------
COMPATIBILITY NOTE: Compatible (clone) HP 950/951 ink cartridges, sold via the internet or similar, may not be refilled and reprogrammed successfully - Costco does not (should not) support refilling of compatible ink cartridges (i.e. those cartridges which do not have the HP original blue/black logo displayed on the front label of the ink cartridge). If you had a compatible/clone/remanufactured ink cartridge refilled we cannot guarantee it's performance.
------

Please let us know if this does not remedy the current error condition. For any additional questions please contact us directly: Inkjet411help@gmail.com

If you need to purchase a new ink cartridge(s), we suggest you try a remanufactured ink cartridge from http://www.inkplicity.com/ as their ink cartridges typically have the lowest cost in the USA and have a high reliability rating.

HP Officejet 6500A - frequent print head clogs


INK PROBLEM
Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.
