Your printer is the genune hp printer. It will not show the ink level of refilled and non-HP cartridges. Try the original one the problem will get rectified.

Hp c4150 printer won't recognize my refilled black 98 cartridge. first time it has been refilled. how do i reset the printer to accept the refilled cartridge?


Dear jiraphe102,

Welcome, and thank you for using FixYa!

Unfortunately, you have the particular brand of cartridge that cannot be refilled. The smart chip on the original cartridge has expired; and will not reset.
You can purchase refurbished Ink online (meaning they have rebuilt the entire cartridge) at the link below.

Refurbished Ink

Or buy new cartridges.

Have a great day!

Printer will not accept new cartridges. Printer is new and wants original cartridges to initialize ink system. Original cartridges are not availible. Tryed reset but did not work.


HP printers will not accept refilled cartridges. Are you trying to replace your empty cartridges with refilled cartridges? There is a computer chip in the ink cartridge that tells the printer when it is out of ink. If you try and refill it yourself, the printer will not recognize that it has been refilled without replacing the computer chip in it.

I think your printer is telling you that it needs HP brand cartridges that are original and not refilled cartridges. There is no way to "reset" an hp printer to get it to use an off brand or refilled cartridge that has not had the chip changed.

You can pick up a good refilled cartridge at a professional company who knows about changing the chip for less then a third of the regular price of an HP cartridge in a department store. However, HP does not want you to use refilled cartridges and should something go wrong with your computer and they find out that you were using them they will void your warranty on your printer.

If you are not trying to replace HP brand cartridges with refilled or off brand versions, I suggest your return them to where you bought them and exchange them. They may be defective cartridges.

Hope this helps?

Is it possible to use non HP ink in ths printer? Tried using "remanufactured ink", and concluded that this printer may be programed to block the use of NON HP INK.


It is always recommended to use genuine HP cartridges.
As if we will use the non HP or refilled cartridges, it will reduce the life of the printer.
And we will get an error "cartridge problem".
Plaese use the below cartridges, which are compatible with this printer.

HP 02 Black Twin Pack 1320 pages
HP 02 Color Combo See single 02 inks
HP 02 Cyan 400 pages

Printer won't accept refilled cartage


I had a similar problem and i cleaned the chip on the cartridges several times, eventually mine accepted them and started working. I turned the printer on and off several times and re inserted the cartridges before i got mine to work. This happened everytime i needed to change the ink unless i used a brand new HP ink.

Once I went to the shop and got some refilled cartridges and one of them wouldnt work at all. I presumed the old ones i had taken in would be refilled but apparently not. Anyway the shop replaced the faulty one free of charge.

Installed updates now HP printer won't accept refilled ink


HP does not recommend refilling thier tanks, their print heads are built in to the cartridge so if you refilled it before resetting the tanks you will have to go to www.hp.com and run the trouble shooting tool for free to fix your issue. you may have to replace the catridge.

How do i make printer accept refilled cartridge t


Maybe you did not refill and insert it very well.

follow this steps in refilling your ink
1. remove the ink cartridge from the printer
2. make a hole at the top end of the cartridge, the hole can be made under the label on the cartridge by using a sharp/hot pin.
3. if you are using a syringe and needle in refilling, make sure you did not insert it into the hole too much so that the cartridge does not get damaged in the process.

4. make sure the ink is not over-filled to avoid spillage which can cause a hell of damage on you printer as it does to my previous one.

5. Gently use the label or a masking tape to cover the hole and insert it into your printer.

Note: The printer gives a message that the cartridge is empty or non compatible, ignore the message and continue with your printing.

It is also advisable that you refill your cartridge not more than 2 times.

Dell 926 printer


Dell cartridge are quite expensive, and refilled and non original cartridge are often not accepted by Dell printer. If you use non original cartridge often you keep getting this message unless you replace both cartridges.
Be also careful also if you use refilled, sometimes refilled can leak all over the inside of your Dell printer right when ink is coming to the end.
In your case try replacing both cartriges at the time, this usually clears the error.
A suggestion: Dell small inkjets are sold at a price often inferior to the cartridge set price, and now you know why, ask the price for a new Lexmark, HP, Epson,Brother, Canon etc. next time you have to replace a cartridge set, it may be worth buying a new printer.
Apart small inkjet sector, Dell produces excellent laser printers, computers, laptops and more.

You can read more opinions on small dell inkjets here or using google.

C6180 printer


Well I hear time and time again that the non-manufactured ink is cheaper - and people are right since it really is. Unfortunately since the cartridge is a knock off of the original or a refill any number of things can happen including jams, ink leaking, false readings, power issues, and so forth.

I suggest you take out the OEM cartridges and put in real hp cartridges. The hp printers are getting smarter about genuine cartridges and sometimes will not accept which could be what your experiencing. Replace the cartridge with real hp cartridge and try to print something out.
