Expired HP printer cartridges BEWARE SPAM ALERT 1-800-532-4187

I have been given an HP CP1700 printer. I get a message that the black cartridge has expired. I do not know if the printer works so am reluctant to spend money on cartridges only to find that something else is wrong. The system indicates taht the cartridge is over 90% full anyway. Is there any way of fooling the printer into accepting an old cartridge - even on a temporary basis so I can check if anything else is wrong?

    Same problem. I don't have the same registry string in the post that walks you through modifying it.

    Where is the battery located please?

  • Gerald Walker Nov 21, 2008

    Thanks fellas. Removing the battery and replacing it did the trick. Will bear other comments in mind if the problem arises again.

I have the identical problem with an HP Business Inkjet 1100.

Once cartridges were past date, the printer would no longer print from Windows XP. It would however work perfectly from Linux.

I did not find an ini file as mentioned in other posts, and I really did not want to open the printer as it worked fine in Linux.

The following fixed the problem:

1) Click on Start button, run
2) Type in regedit, enter
3) Navigate to HKLM/software/Hewlett-Packard/HP Printers/HPWH Toolbox/Common
4) In the right panel, right click on Ink, pick modify
5) Change 0100 to 0000
6) Save and reboot

On the CP1700 I was able, through other forums, to locate the battery causing me no to be able to use perfectly fine but recently expired ink. It took me a while to locate it and some nimble fingers to fix it but it has saved me a ton of money.
1. unplug 2.locate the battery 3.slide a piece of clear plastic (from retail packaging) between the contact and battery 4. wait an hour 5. plug back in and voila!

Hi everyone HP Cartridge expiration problem solved

Model : HP Business Inkjet 1000 series

Problem : Cartridge Expired

Solution : Normally you can't override cartridge expiration date problem but you can hack and overcome from the problem. As per the documents from the web saying this model can remember up to 3 cartridge of one particular colour. Normally each cartridge will expired within 2 1/2 years.

Mine also expired. To disable the link level feedback to system you have to unplug some cables inside of the printer. So you have to search web for that. I was also refilled the cartridge and reuse it upto 2 1/2 years. After that my 4 ink cartridges were expired and refuse to print even the ink levels were good.

How to overcome this problem. HP the International company's cartridge protection technology having some loop hole in their protection. They want more business than what they are selling. They don't like people refill and use their cartridge. They want to force the user to buy new cartridge get more profit. 

Normally the each cartridges portion in the printer recognize and memorize the chip bottom of the each cartridge. For example the black cartridge part the printer recognize the chip fixed bottom inside the black cartridge. It won't check or memorize the other color cartridge chips. 

I just removed the chip of the black using a nice blade and swap the chip of the pink (double side glue is used to paste the cartridge chip. You have to very carefully do this. Otherwise chip will damage). Do the same trick to other two cartridge. After you swap note down which cartridges you swaped and keep it in safe place. Later it is useful to swap it again. Better swap (1 and 2) (3 and 4). At least you can swap and use the cartridge for 10 years.

Other model of Business inkjet you have to try it yourself. It may work. Best of luck.

On the HP Color Inkjet CP 1160 Printer Just remove the battery
and throw it away. Cause once you remove it, it is almost impossible
to replace it back into the printer. Its located on the lower left side
of the printer on an upside down circuit board.

HP business inkjet 1200 solution for expired cartridges. There is a 9 pin connector located under the ink cartridges. The cover can be removed by prying it off. It is held in by 4 fingers the lock it in place. Under the cover there is a plactic barrier that I cut the middle section out to get access to the connector. I unplugged the connector and removed the white wire and plugged the connector back in and my expired cartridges work just fine.

OK everybody, The simple way to fix this problem is to reset the printer. All of the newer printers have a battery inside. I just slipped a piece of plastic between the battery and the clip and left it there for about five minutes. Removed the plastic and presto. The internal record keeping info is reset and I am printing again. I did this on two HP CP1700's and it worked fine

Honestly, the only easy way is to get new ink cartridges. However, most HP's have a battery in them. Taking out the battery and leaving it sit for a while and taping the end of the battery will reset the dates in your printer. But those take HP 10's & 11's. Chances are if has sat, your printheads are bad as well. So the true question is do you want to spend 34$ a whack for each print head, and then for the ink? If you replace each head and say get the large black, you're spending nearly $200. I'd say if you're not sure, get the ink refilled at your local cartridge world, and try it then. They re chip the 10, so it won't read expired. If it tries to print, then focus on the printheads

Can I print on my hp 6122 deskjet with only a black ink cartridge? I have no color ink.

Yes, all HP Deskjet printer models feature a 'single cartridge print mode'. Just remove the cartridge you don't wish to print with; the printer will automatically revert into either greyscale printing (if color cartridge remains installed) or black only printing (if the black cartridge remains installed). However, if the installed ink cartridge is electrically damaged/defective the printer will display an alert message; it will need to be replaced with a new cartridge.

Reset printer cartridges hp l7580

HP88 CARTRIDGE RECOGNITION FAILURES/CAUSES:

The failure to recognize an ink cartridge(s) could either be a possible Cartridge connectivity, PRINTHEAD* connectivity or an end-of-life PRINTHEAD issue.

We suggest you remove all the ink cartridges and thoroughly clean BOTH PRINTHEADS manually along with cartridge chip contact surfaces (located on bottom-rear side of each ink cartridge). Clean all electrical contacts, including those inside the printer which mate to the PRINTHEADS. Reinstall both PRINTHEADS and cartridges and retest. You may refer to HP's 'manual' cleaning procedures here:
http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&taskId=125&prodSeriesId=2511747&prodTypeId=18972&objectID=c00844045

Ensure an "expired ink cartridge" alert state is not causing the issue, refer to this page on how to check & bypass: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1384

---- If you observe an "Expired xxxx ink cartridge" alert or message, this error may be bypassed by performing the following:
a. Press and HOLD the Power button.
b. Press Resume button 3 times.
c. Release the Power button

If the cartridge was refilled (i.e. at Costco or Fry's Electronics), following HP 88 cartridge chip replacement and complete cartridge/printhead/printer manual electrical contact cleaning, the cartridge alert message(s) continue, then you may have a damaged PRINTHEAD* (there are two printheads inside the printer) which may require re-priming or replacement depending on problem symptoms.

* The HP 88 ink-series printer models have two electronic PRINTHEADS (each of these electronic devices are responsible for pulling ink from the ink cartridges and then firing the ink droplets onto the paper) - both PRINTHEADS will eventually fail depending on printed content, printer duty cycle (i.e. typically rated for ~41, 500 printed pages depending on image content & frequency of printing). The average inkjet printer can typically be refilled with ~15 to 20 complete sets of ink cartridges over the life of the printhead, after which, either the Yellow/Black and/or Cyan/Magenta printhead will need to be replaced due to internal electrical failure (available at HP.com).

Refer to video on how the HP PRINTHEAD functions: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=2054
When the PRINTHEAD electronically fails typically the printer will provide an alert message when this happens, but if a printhead has suffered a deprime (i.e. loss of ink/pressure which results in no printing of color), it is possible to recover the system using a 3rd party PRINTHEAD priming tool, such as this one: http://www.inkowl.com/?p=product&product=5035

I bought a black ink for my hp photosmart c5 180 and the when i turn on the printer it says the ink has expired. Can i still use it or will i damage my printer. Thanks regards Anita

Hello
according to HP
Each ink cartridge has an expiration date. The purpose of expiration is to protect the printing system and to ensure ink quality. When you receive an ink cartridge(s) are expired message, remove and replace the expired ink cartridge, and then close the message. You can also continue printing without replacing the ink cartridge, by following the instructions on the HP All-in-One or the ink cartridge expiration message on your computer screen. HP recommends replacing the expired ink cartridges. HP cannot guarantee the quality or reliability of expired ink cartridges. Device service or repairs required as a result of using expired ink will not be covered under warranty.
You can get more detail from here

10.1000 Supply Memory error. How can I fix that?

sounds like might be your toner, specifically your black toner.
is this a non-standard toner or HP? IF it your toner you can try this:

Place a stip of opaqe tape or paper or the chip. When the printer detects a non-standard cartridge press the green (go) button. It will then reset the LCD to Ready.

Found this info on a recycled manufacturer site. http://www.infinityimaging.com/cgi-local/SoftCart.exe/online-store/scstore/p-2300.html?E+scstore

otherwise it's probably the memory on the printer, try removing or replacing a DIMM

HP CP1700 - no cyan or blue printing

Try taking a look at your printheads. Have they been installed for some time. You may need to change them. Start with the Cyan first.

"Expired color cartridge" message blocks black printing - nothing works

Hello merelU. I'm afraid you may have to replace the empty color cartridge as there may be problems with the printer while an expired cartridge is installed on the printer (even though some of the cartridges are still under warranty) and also, HP cannot guarantee the quality or reliability of expired ink cartridges.


all the best.
thx

Refilled ink cartridges

The reason why the printer says supply expired because the ink cartridge has its own warranty. When the warranty of the ink cartridge has expired then you will get that message. Eventhough you refill it. You need to replace the ink cartridge itself.

Expired ink cartridge

You may be getting this error message due to the printer being able to tell that it is a non-hp cartridge. I don't know how it can tell, but mine says that too. I uninstalled the software and then reinstalled the software. And then I took out the cartridge and put it back in. See if this works for you.
