don ward

I have HP 930 and get colored ink is low ... i have only done about dozen
color prints rest of time the default is set for black/white printing.
Ive taken a color cartridge apart an dont find any kinds of sensing device
inside so im guessin that the ink is low comes from a computer count of
images printed and says your out when the cartridge maybe almost full????
is this so???
id like to refill but when i take cartridge out i cannot reinstall it say
illegal cartridge ... what gives
Can anyone help me understand this and any fixes

thanks

From what I can gather, each cartridge has a serial number or something to
identify it to the printer.
The printer knows how long the catrige should last on average, and guesses
at the ink level.

If you refill the cartridge, the printer still see's the serial number of a
cartridge it thinks is empty.

I beleive most printers only store about the last 2 cartridges used, so if
you have 3 cartridges, you can swap cartridges around (putting in cartridge
3 for example, will make it forget about the status of catridge 1, allowing
you to use it again)

I'm not sure what makes and models of printer the above trick works for, but
it's worth a shot..

Chris
