When you refill HP Color ink cartridges, you should also reset them. There is an in-built chip that comes with each color cartridge. This chip enables communication with the printer and when the ink in the cartridge becomes low, the chip gives signals to display a low ink warning. This warning can also display even when you have refilled the cartridge. This is why resetting the ink cartridge is important. For resetting the ink cartridges, you can give a call at the HP printer technical support number.
To reset the HP color cartridges 57, 28, and 22 follow these steps:
