Question about HP DeskJet F380 All-In-One Printer
The reason the error is coming up is when you refill a cartridge it often causes the printer to misread the ink levels.
Also refilling often times causes problems with the cartridges including blocking the printheads in the actual cartridge. I would try to do a printhead cleaning - see document below (which is showing for another printer but the steps are the same) - and if unsuccessful they have most likely killed the cartridge and you will have to purchase a new one.

When you put the same cartridge back in, the computer doesn't know it's a "different" one and continues to indicate the same ink level as before. The level is calculated based on number of pages printed and is not actually measured.
Try alternating 2 cartridges. This should reset the page counter. I haven't actually tried this yet so I might be totally wrong.
