Resetting of chip for hp toner Q6000A
So I want to know if anyone helps me by showing any procedure to reset these chips.So i can use the full quantity of toner.
These cartridges countdown even if you don't print with the particular color. If you print lots of pages that are only black, the color cartridges "count-down" too. HP is really screwing us all.
IF all the colors would count no matter what color you used, then ALL colors indicator would ALWAYS show the same level, right? and it is not the truth, you can see different levels for each color.
To block chips press green button for main Menu Menu
•Right arrow to System Configuration, confirm with green button
•Right arrow to Print Quality, confirm with green button
•Right arrow to Substitute Suplies, confirm with green button
•Right arrow to Ignore empty and confirm with green button
Printer gets back to ready.
I am really upset when the page count and the \% used goes up on each color cartridge equally for each page printed, even if page is all black.
I opened case 3601338360 and was told by "sandra_spilde" that "there is no way to disable the color counts on model 2605DN".
I have run experiments with the sensor on:
My findings are: Every page printed is counted on all four cartridges. I print a lot of only black and all 4 toner cartridges show the same count.
Turning off the sensors saves me a lot of money and I only plan to replace toner when the printing shows I need to. I have three other laser printers, with two others being HP monochrome and they don't count pages, so I replace them only after I have removed the cartridge and shook it side to side and the problem doesn't go away after only a few more printed pages.
I know of no damage to the printer that can be caused by an empty toner cartridge, and I know if I printed full pages of black, the toner would run out before the page count hit 2,000.
If this would cause the printer to fail, HP would have a fix out very quickly, because that would be a flaw in the design of the printer.
However, if the sensors weren't there at all and the printer is being used on a network with many users, there would be a lot of wasted paper when the cartridges run out one by one. So the fix is to count all pages on all cartridges equally.
But I don't use my color laser on a network, so I can easily see when a color is missing and replace the toner to shake it first, because there will be areas missing and not on the whole page.

The chip can not be reset in any conventional way. There are manufacturers that can re-write the chip or sell you a replacement to accurately track the usage if you want.
Supply Used After Out with OVERRIDE
*(See Warranty Note)
Using OVERRIDE may result in unsatisfactory print quality and unavailability of certain features.
All printed defects or supply failures incurred when an HP supply is used in OVERRIDE will not be considered defects in materials or workmanship in the supply under HP’s Premium Protection Warranty.
OK, if you tell the printer to ignore the toner sensor and take the cartridges to the point of actually being empty, and only then do you replace the cartridges with *new* ones, I can assure you that the bushings, wiper blade and other parts will not fail. That is just plain silly and something that HP and its partners who resale new cartridges want the public in general to think.
Now, if you use re-charged or re-manufactured cartridges and that company that handles the removal and adding of new toner do not also replace those parts that will wear out, then yes, you may end up on the receiving end of having a bad thing happen to one or more of your cartridges. That's why you want to use reputable re-manufacturers with some sort of warranty if you go the re-manufacturer route and you don't just want to remove any remaining toner and simply refill with replacement toner for more than one or two times-then things like bushings and other components may in fact fail-or just disable the sensor and simply use the cartridge until empty then buy a new one-I have no problems when this is done.

Go to page 134 'Cartridge out override' in the maintenance section.
You will find a step-by-step how-to as mentioned by other folks earlier. It also talks about warnings and why the printer is not set to 'Cartridge out override' when you buy it.
The Cartridge Out Override feature allows the printer to continue using a cartridge that has reached the recommended replacement point.
WARNING! Using Override may result in unsatisfactory print quality and unavailability of certain features (such as toner remaining information).
WARNING! All print defects or supply failures incurred when an HP supply is used in Override will not be considered defects in materials or workmanship in the supply under HP's Print Cartridge Limited Warranty Statement.
Cartridge Out Override can only be enabled from the printer's control panel menu.
1. From the main menu, press (RIGHT ARROW) to System setup and press Check Mark button (SELECT).
2. Press (RIGHT ARROW) to Print quality and press the Check Mark button (SELECT).
3. Press (RIGHT ARROW) to Replace supplies and press Check Mark button (SELECT).
4. Press (RIGHT ARROW) to Override out and press Check Mark button (SELECT).
5. Press (Check Mark button SELECT).
If Stop at out is selected, the printer will stop printing when a cartridge reaches the recommended replacement point. If Override out is selected, the printer will continue printing when a cartridge reaches the recommended replacement point. The factory default setting is Stop at out.
Override can be enabled or disabled at any time, and does not have to be re-enabled for each cartridge. The printer will automatically continue printing when a cartridge reaches recommended replacement. The printer will display a message Replace supply Override in use while a cartridge is used in Override mode. When the cartridge is replaced with a new supply, Override will de-activate until another cartridge reaches recommended replacement.
Not want to buy 100$/pcs cartridges (yes, they cost that much in here)
I still have a lot of black toner and it wont print till I replace the toners. Did the cartridge out override and back to work... I have a 1600.
I just applied Cartridge Outoverride to my colleagues printer yesterday. It wanted her to change all 4 toners even though she almost exclusively prints in black & white. She had already replaced the black toner, but not any colour ones. It's now printing happily in black & white, but refusing to print in colour. Any ideas? The toners are definately not empty!
Cheers for any advice.
How can I fix the printer or the cartridge so it will not leak?
Even two years after your post it is still valuable. I already bought a new magenta cartridge and then read something in a magazine about counters on inktcartridges. Surfing the internet got me on this page. It couldn't be a coincidence that after replacing the magenta cartridge the cyan cartridge happened to be replaced also, I felt. My printer still was refusing to printer, but after following the steps to ignore empty it is printing again. Thanks.
By the way, I've got a HP Color LaserJet 1600, so it working on this printer, too.
Well, the results are in. My printer said the black starter cartridge was empty, and shut down the printer at 504 pages. I set the over-ride, and the printer went to 863 pages before I saw a slight degradation of quality, visible only in bold, 72-point type as a slight mottling. Still acceptable, but no longer perfect, so I replaced the cartridge. probably I could have gotten another hundred pages by shaking the old cartridge and re-inserting it, but enough is enough. The fact that I got better than 70\% more pages out of the cartridge than I was "supposed" to was sufficient.
It will be hard to convince me that HP does not have an unethical profit motive in burying that over-ride command so deep in the menus that no-one would ever stumble across it by accident, and then being so ultra-conservative (I mean, 70\% more, come on!) with the toner management.
TO RESET CHIP IN HP cp1515n Lazer printer as my Toners are half full donE little Amount of printing yet printer says empty ???????????
Is there anyway for the printer to print if I take one of the cartridge out, like missing Yellow?
I need to take the cartridge out for refill, and I need to be able to use the printer while one of the cartridge is out for refill.
When I put the old (nearly empty) cartridge back in, the error goes away, and the printer works fine. I checked, I'm still set to override, but it's acting as if it's still reading the memory chip.
When it's on override, does it totally ignore the memory chip, or does it perhaps still need to read it, even though that doesn't stop it from printing? (In which case I've got a more than defective memory chip, and I'm wondering if I can physically swap the chip from my old cartridge to the new one, and then use it with it set to override so that it ignores that the chip will soon be reporting the cartridge is empty when it's nearly full.)
Man oh man...I stumbled upon this link searching for something slightly related. You'd think you people were trying to split the atom here. This is one of the most over-analyzed and repetitive forums I've ever seen. There should be a warning that anyone with an IQ over 50 is not permitted!
I may have an IQ of only 50 on this overworked thread, but I still have questions.
It may be, as partsguy said in 2007, "It is my understanding that these chips are not resetable in any conventional manner. there are some companies that can re-flash those chips that resetting the chip cannot be done by 'normal' procedures and some Companys can 'flash' them."
As kimosabe asked on (6/24/08) and I ask today:
Where do the vendors on ebay get the chips they sell when you buy toner from them? Do they have companies that flash for them?
Just what does the chip do? Is it preloaded with so many "counts". The printer cannot reprogram or "burn" the chip. Just what in the hell is going on?
Can I just buy toner, burn holes, fill the cartridge, tape the holes, use the same old chips and set the printer to ignore when empty?
Partsguys and hp reps need not respond.
Print black when color cartridges are empty:
Front Panel / System Setup / Print Quality / Color Supply Out / Continue Black
Front Panel / System Setup / Print Quality / Replace Supplies / Override out
Tx a million, I never suspected the printer setup allows to not check the toner.
Having compared the weight of a new cartridge and a "dead" one, I discovered a 40grams (1,5 once) difference and could not believe that the cartridge was really dead...
Have a good weekend
found it was a good idea to have a vacuume cleaner handy.
Anyway put it back together and colors print fine but now the whole page has a light grey hue printed on it no matter what I print. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
1. Power your HP Printer
2. Press and hold the "Go" button on the main control panel, if there is no such button then there must be a green button with a check mark on it.
3. Power on it via the power switch while still holding down the "Go" button. After a few seconds, the display screen on the printer will read "Cold Reset." Continue pressing the "Go" button. You will hear the printer's motors rotating inside the machine. On some models, "Cold Reset" may not be displayed on the screen, but according to HP, hearing the motors rotating is indicative that the reset was successful
4. Now Release the "Go" button. The display screen will then read "Initializing," then "Restoring Factory Settings." Lastly, the display will read "Offline."
5. Press the "Go" button once again to bring the printer back online. If the Smart Chip was malfunctioning, it should now be reset and printing functionality will be restored to your HP laser printer.
If the screen still indicates that the toner cartridge needs to be replaced, it is likely that it is out of toner.
Hope it works, still facing issues, then contact here
HP Color Laser Jet 1600 - Thanks for all the above information. Even though the 1600 is a different printer, I followed the above: "...go to "System Configuration"; then to "Print Quality"; I then get a choice of "Replace Supplies" and then "Overide Out"..." Selecting "Overide Out" got my 1600 back to printing, although I did have do perform the steps TWICE before it seemed to take affect. Not sure what was going on, but I'm happy that people put the information out there for the rest of us to have.
