Put in a HP cartridge and see if it works.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

To make life difficult, printer manufacturers make their cartidges ever more difficult to refill.

This is because it hits them in the pocket, when they are charging exorbitant prices for their own cartridges. I suspect more money is made from subsequent cartridge sales than the printer itself! :-(

Some cartidges have a chip, which possibly can be reset. See:-

If you purchased the cartidge as a refill, suggest taking it back.

Please advise back on progress.

Good Luck - Keep us posted.
