SOURCE: HP OFFICEJET 4215 cartridge error

Try this while standing on one leg.

1. OPen ink caridge lid.
2. Remove the affected cartridge.
3. Close lid
4. Try to print. This will fail, but that is ok.
5. Open the ink cartridge door again.
6. Remove the other cartridge.
7. Unplug the unit.
NOTE FOR THE NEXT STEP
This can be risky and I asume no responsibility for pressng too ******* the contact points, havng too much alcohol, using the wrong kind of alcohol, or not using alcohol or other such problems that can occur.

8. Using ONLY alcholo lightly brushthe contact points
9. Lightly clean the cartridge cotact points.
10. Plug in the unit
11. Install the cartridges.
12. Go through the alignment process.
13. Switch to the other leg, those with one leg only are exempt.
14. You just might be ready to print again.

I know this sounds crazy but this just worked for me.

I bought all new cartridges, inserted them the way they were removed, but message board still says defected cartridges. how to install ink properly and make error message disappear?


Here is a video from HP explaining the process. IF you followed this procedure and are getting errors, then you may have bigger issues. I am assuming you are using genuine HP ink, not remanufactured or refilled cartridges.

How do i find ink levels in Windows 8 for HP Office Jet J4580


It depends on what type of ink cartridge you have installed.....with HP genuine ink cartridges and HP Solution center installed, everything should be there. However, if you get an HP integrated ink cartridge refilled (i.e. HP 60, 61, 74, 75, 901, 92-98....currently offered at Costco or Frys today) or if you buy a remanufactured/compatible HP ink cartridge, the ink levels will not be displayed nor can they be reset (HP has a smart chip embedded within the nozzle plate at base of ink cartridge which counts the drops and then registers as empty).....so you'll just need to live with it and ignore 'ink low', 'non-genuine', 'counterfeit' messages and similar while you are using these types of aftermarket supplies. The first video below provides an overview of the 'low ink' phenomena.


NOTE: These types of 'SEVERE' cartridge errors (i.e. "refer to documentation" / "incompatible cartridges", "print cartridge(s) problem" etc.) typically indicates the internal micro-electronics of the HP #901 / 901XL cartridge are damaged. The cartridge's electrical wire runs at rear and lower side of the ink cartridge are very delicate and are somewhat susceptible to ink attack over time, which can lead to premature failures. In addition, the older the cartridge the higher the chance of an internal electrical failure. I suggest you first run a 'Tap 41' diagnostic test to check cartridges electrical health (this is a forced test); you may also bypass the error (temporarily) on all models which use HP 901 cartridges. Refer to Inkjet411 youtube videos below:

How to reset hp 901 ink


When you get an HP integrated ink cartridge refilled (i.e. HP 60, 61, 74, 75, 901, 92-98....currently offered by Costco and Frys today) or if you buy a remanufactured/compatible HP ink cartridge, the ink levels CANNOT be reset (HP has a smart chip embedded within the nozzle plate at base of ink cartridge which counts the drops and then registers as empty - it uses fusible links so the electronics are literally blown - thus non-reversible).....so you just need to live with the low ink messages and ignore ink low, non-genuine, counterfeit, fraud messages and similar while you are using these types of refilled or aftermarket ink supplies.
Refer to Inkjet411.com sitelet for all printer models which use refilled ink cartridges (most major brands and models) - see videos below on HP 901 and 901XL low ink warning messages, along with all the other more severe error messages:

HOW TO RESET 920 INK CARTRIDGE ON HP OFFICEJET 6500 AFTER HAVING IT REFILL


FYI, you cannot reset the ink it self. If your using an HP refilled ink cartridge the warranty of your printer will be void. you need to contact HP right away to purchase new ink cartridges.
If the cartridge has been refilled or remanufactured, 'Low on Ink' or 'Ink Alert' messages may be inaccurate or display incorrectly.

Cartridge error hp officejet j6480 generic cartridge


I own one of these printers and refill cartridges for a living. When you get this problem its best to return the cartridge for another, thats what I do for my customers.

When buying re-manufactured cartridges its best to buy from a local store and ask about there return policy before making your first purchase.

If you are buying from a reputable re-manufacturer then this will be a very rare problem. It happens with genuine HPs too.

BTW this printer uses HP 74 & 75 inks. when buying re-manufactured buy the HP 74xl which gives (according to HP) 750 printers compared to 200 from the HP74. Remanufactured HP75s are fill to HP75xl capacity.
