HP printer don't know tank is FULL

Please sir Glen, how did you bypass the penalty of replacing 2x2 per cartridge? Can you please drop a hint?
I?m a new user suffering from the trauma of pilling up cost to what I already paid for printer.
As you all rightly acknowledged, HP [High Penance] is taking too much of a heavy toll on unsuspecting victims including me.
Please provide a hint to reduce our burden.

xin,

A tip for future... it is best to post a follow-up within the original post to keep it all together. Wink It will automatically kick the thread to the top of the list.

Now as to your question, I have no special way of doing this. My printer is a Deskjet 970Cse and from the beginning I manually refilled the original cartridges from cheap bulk ink that will do several re-fills. The printer hiccuped and burped a few times but after fooling with it did finally accept the refill. Since then I have used both original cartridges and compatible replacement cartridges that are available for half the original cost or less. See some here http://www.inkmadness.com/printers.mhtml?search_for=HP&category=inkjet .
At the present I am using cartridges that have been manually refilled a few times from bulk ink without any problem. I am in sympathy with your problem and can only suggest to keep trying and look around for alternatives. I feel like you can make it work. Hope you will post your results... good or bad.

Best of luck!

Happy

Glenn

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
