HP Waste Ink Tank Reset



The newer Hewlett Packard printers have included in the software that comes
with their printers, a “toolbox” that includes a section called Estimated
Ink Level. Its a great tool that allows you to keep track of how much ink is
left in your cartridges so you don’t start a big print job and get stranded
out of ink in the middle of it. The only problem is that has become quite troublesome
on those who wish to refill their cartridges. If you refill your cartridge or
have someone else refill your cartridge, it will read as low or empty when you
try to print with the cartridge. How does HP do it? They started embedding a
serial number in the contact strip located on the back of the cartridge. The
printer remembers that serial number and gives the message of low or out of
ink. The internal memory is located in the printers firmware and is not in the
software. It will remember the previous two cartridges ink level. We have posted
various ways to reset the ink levels so your Estimated Ink Level will read full
again. Click on your printer cartridge number below to find out how.

Reset the HP C6656A (#56) or HP C8727A (#27):

Reset Method 1:HP Waste Ink Tank Reset

1. Refill your cartridge using your Ink Jet refill kit.

2. Following the diagram at right, place a piece of adhesive tape covering
the only the light blue colored contact (a contact is the individual copper
square). Make sure that only that contact is covered and no others. *Please
note that the contacts shown are colored for illustrative purposes only. You
will not have blue or red contacts on your cartridge.

3. Place cartridge in the printer. The printer may tell you that there is a
problem with your cartridge. Ignore this message. The printer may print an alignment
page. If so, allow it to do so.

4. Take the cartridge out of the printer. Leave the tape from blue contact
on the cartridge. Place another piece of tape over the red colored contact.
Make sure that only that contact is covered and no others. *Please note that
the contacts shown are colored for illustrative purposes only. You will not
have blue or red contacts on your cartridge.

5. Follow step 3 again.

6. Take the cartridge out of the printer for the final time. Take the remaining
tape off and place back in the printer. The printer should print out an alignment
page and the estimated ink level in the toolbox should read full.

Reset Method 2:

If Reset Method 1 did not work on your printer, you can cycle cartridges through
to reset the level. You will need two extra cartridges and the one you refilled.
First, put the refilled cartridge in the printer. Allow it to recognize the
cartridge and print an alignment page. Take that cartridge out and place in
the first extra cartridge. Allow it to recognize and print an alignment page.
Take the first extra cartridge out and place the second extra cartridge in.
Allow it to recognize and print an alignment page. Take the second extra cartridge
out. Place the refilled cartridge back in the printer. It will print an alignment
page and then the estimated ink level will be reset to full.

Reset Method 2:

If Reset Method 1 did not work on your printer, go through the same procedure
again, but this time using the green colored contacts in step 2 and the brown
colored contacts in step 4. This method is more commonly used for the #15 or
in the later officejet printers.

Reset Method 3:

If neither of the reset methods above worked, you can cycle cartridges through
to reset the level. You will need two extra cartridges and the one you refilled.
