You cannot reset the ink level indicator for the HP 60 ink cartridge. It shouldn't matter anyway because the level is only estimated for "management purposes only" (see user manual) meaning to let you know when it's near time to order a new cartidge. I have tried cycling through 3 different cartridges to reset the ink level for the one I refilled but it didn't work. Refill and just ignore the ink level indicator. Also, it's a good idea to clean the print heads with the solvent in the refill kit before refilling to remove old ink and imrpove print quality.

hi Justchuck69. You can use the software that came with your HP Photosmart all-in-one printer to create CD covers and then print them on the discs. For this to work, the CD must be printable, and you shouldn't use CDs that have their manufacturer, size and speed already printed on them. You must use the latest HP software to create and print the covers. If you can't find the installation disc that came with your printer, download the latest version of the software from HP's Support website. 1 Launch the HP Solution Center that was installed on your computer when you installed the HPsoftware. 2 Click the "View Library" button to open the photo library and then select the folder that contains the images you want to use for your CD cover from the left pane. Click the "Add This Folder" to add the folder to the library. You can only use photos from the library to create the CD cover. 3 Click the "Back" arrow near the top of the window to return to the Welcome screen. 4 Click the "Create" button, choose "Disc Labels," and then click either "Standard CD" if you want to print on a standard CD or "Mini CD" if you want to print on a mini CD. Click "Choose This Format." 5 Choose a design from the list of designs, and then click the "Choose This Design" button. 6 Select the photo or photos you want to print on your CD, and then click the "Add These Photos" button. 7 Use the controls in the Edit Your Disc Label section to zoom, rotate and reposition the photo. Click the text boxes and type or paste some text, if you want to add text to the label. Click "Create" when you're satisfied with the result. 8 Select the HP Photosmart printer from the "Printer" drop-down box, and then ensure the "Standard Sizes" option is selected. 9 Click the "Print" button when you're ready to print the cover on the CD. The "Open CD/DVD Tray" message is displayed on the printer's LCD. 10 Pull the CD/DVD tab below the main tray to remove the CD holder, and then place the disc on the ring of the CD holder with its print-side up. Gently press on the CD until it snaps into place. 11 Lower the CD/DVD tray located just below the control panel, and then insert the CD holder into the tray. The printer starts printing as soon as the white lines on the tray and holder match up. 12 Wait until the printing process is complete, remove the CD holder from the tray, let the ink on the CD dry for a few minutes, and then remove the disc from the holder. 13 Close the CD/DVD tray, and then insert the CD holder back into the storage space. Tips

  • checkThe back of the HP all-in-one printer must be at least three inches away from the wall or other objects.
  • checkIf you use a small CD, don't forget to flip the holder ring over the disc before you snap the CD holder into place.
  • checkYou can add additional folders to HP Photosmart Essential if you can't find the photos you want to print on the CD.
  • checkYou can bold or italicize the text when you type it, but you can't choose a different font or change the size of the text.
  • checkAlternatively, you can use a free third-party utility to create the CD cover and then print it on the disc.
  • closeDon't turn off or unplug the printer from the computer while it prints the CD cover.

Is your printer a wifi printer if so. delete the printer and add via the ip address. if this is not possible switch the spooling to raw print or print directly with out spooling.

Simple. Remove the ink and printhead. You can remove printhead by pulling gray latch up and sliding printhead up and out. Clean printhead gunk off using warm running water. Remove any ink gunk on the right side of printer if you see any. Turn printer off and on. See if problem went away. If it did, try putting the cleaned printhead inside printer again. If problem comes back, seems like the issue is with a bad printhead. Below are video instructions on cleaning head manually. The printheads are not same. B210 printhead is not the same with HP 6500, but instructions are same. If you need further help, I’m available over the phone at https://www.6ya.com/expert/alex_22751bbefa74c3d0

Sounds like the drivers are not installing properly. Are you installing through the CD or downloading the drivers from the HP website. Since a lot of the new drivers are no longer supporting XP you will need to download a scrubber utility and delete all of the pre installed drivers and attempt to reinstall through a manual installation of the drivers.

Try to download a OCR trial software from the internet, this software allows you to edit what you have scanned.

HP DeskJet F4280... • Answered on Dec 05, 2015

You can't unless you use OCR (optical character recognition) software

HP DeskJet F4280... • Answered on Dec 05, 2015

Put the CD in the computer
Select "Add more Software"
Check if you have any OCR option
If you have one Install it
Then Try to scan from HP Solution center and select Scan Document
You will be able to Scan to Editable text

Other wise you can purchase a Software RED I.R.I.S.
and then you can directly Scan from the software to editable text.
Link for the Software :

You need to install OCR by Iris software. This will allow you to scan and convert it to rich text file (.rtf) /editable text. Some HP AIO like HP c309a have free basic OCR software. you can download c309a full feature driver and software and just get the OCR software.
