They have a "special" chip inside them, this records the tonor/ink level and also gives it an expiry data. unless the chip if replaced it will always say the same.

I want to disable messages about the inkcartridges.


Sadly not. The HP Photosmart C7280 insists on having a full set of cartridges installed in order to print. It does this because the printheads are actually part of the printer itself and can sustain damage if they pull air into the printhead.

The out of date message is also non-negotiable I am sad to say.

My HP Photosmart C7280 does not recognise refilled cartridge.


Yes that is because when you get a cartridge refilled then what may have happened is when you gave a print command some of the ink may have splattered onto the ink spraying sensors(usually happens with refilled cartridges on any printer).Its because of the heat generated with which the ink nozzles cannot handle as the ink that is sprayed from refilled cartridges is a little more than regular original ink cartridges.Dip a cotton swab in water wipe the copper contacts on the cartridge.Then wipe around the place where the cartridges sit and also wipe the carriage rod which is inside the printer (metal rod)along which ur spraying mechanism(carriage) moves. If this does not resolve your issue call in to hp at 1800-474-6836 and you can purchase original cartridges that are just for 11 dollars each.........or you can purchase a combination pack which will be cheaper

HP Photosmart C7280 still prints in color


Why don't you try changing the Setup for your printing to Black & White or Grayscale in your computer's software: File/Print/go to the printer's settings and disable anything color. As for the cartridge, it's probably the cartridge. If you have an extra, why not swap it out? I believe the brains in the cartridge contacts might not be working properly OR your heads need to be cleaned OR you better stick with HP original cartridge to make sure it's not the printer. I used to use "odd" ink and even refilled ones and shortly thereafter my old printers would die. Not taking a chance on this HP. I love how it prints when it isn't jamming the paper! Need help on that problem pronto.

Ink Refill for HP Photosmart c7280 not working


Hi Lisa,

If it responds ok with the old cartridge then the problem is with the cartridges' chip not the printer. Probably the manufactor has a problem with certain cartridge chip (contact them!). I would suggest to use the original at the problematic spot if it works without a problem.
