I have a new HP F380 All in One printer that just ran out of ink. I've always refilled my cartridges myself so I tried with this new one. The darn thing won't work. Does anyone know why a HP cartridge does not show up as full on the ink cartridge page? Also, is there someway to get around it and force the thing to think it's full. I don't know what to do. Except buy the expensive things.

Some printer software that detect ink levels won't recognize a cartridge that's been refilled. They treat the cartridge as empty although you've filled them with ink. You can try removing the HP software that pertains to the printing functions only (not the scanner abilities). You can also do a Power reset. Remove the printer cartridges, turn off the power, remove both the Power cord and USB cord (if applicable) for 10 minutes. After reconnecting the USB and power cords, install the cartridges as you normally would. The printer should treat them as new.
the most important is to remove all the air from the cartridge that has left inside durring refilling that is why professionals are using special machines that refill in 0 air πρεσυρε using vaccum pump

You need to reset or replace the ink level monitoring chip on these cartridges for refills to work. I know some refill kit sellers don't like to mention this to people before they buy the ink. Otherwise, I would recommend Cartridge World for ink refills because it can be messy to fill these cartridges and they always reset the chips for you.
HP will tell you to never refill cartridges because they will not guarantee your printer will print properly with those refilled cartridges. If those refilled cartridges leak and cause damage to your printer HP will also not cover any repairs to the printer regardless of what sort of warranty coverage you have with them. Warranties only cover HP failures, not ones caused by using third-party or refilled ink cartridges. So, no it is not worth having the cartridges refilled - buy new HP-branded ones only.
“Lexmark does not support the refilling of its ink cartridges. Refilling the ink cartridges can cause them to leak, thus clogging or even damaging the print head. Any damage to your printer caused by refilled ink cartridges may not be covered under warranty”. Please use genuine Lexmark cartridges for best results.
as you are using a refilled cartridge, it is causing this problem. the thickness of ink in a hp genuine cartridge and a refilled cartridge varies. and also the refilled cartridge may make your printer faulty. so it is good to try with a new hp genuine ink cartridges.
