to refill 920:

1. If you have the plastic cap that covers the 9 mm. hole where you can see the sponge, then tape this cap to the cartidge with scotch tape. If not, use some duct/masking tape to cover the round hole.

2. Use the dry hypodermic needle to find the hole that will be found at the very center of the 920 label. With the needle, pierce the label.

3. Fill the hypodermic needle with 4 cc of ink.

4. Insert the needle 2-3 cm. into the hole made in step 2. Draw out 1 cc of air, then slowly force the 4 cc of ink into the sponge. Use toilet tissue to absorb any ink that might have escaped.

5. Let the catridge stand overnight (if possible) so as to allow the ink to evenly saturate the sponge. If not, insert it into your printer immediately.

Note: If you are going to refill catridges, be certain not to allow the sponge to dry completely. Thus, you might want to do step one immediately and to enclose it in a sealed sandwich bag upon removing an empty catridge from your printer even if you are not going to fill it immediately.

I am trying to scan, but when I press the scan button it states "No scan options. Refer to device doc to troubleshoot". However, I can't find my device doc. I am assuming there is an easy fix?

HP 8500 all in one printer: error 0x61011bef

My HP 8500 all in one printer is giving error message 0x61011bef. It took one piece of paper and won't continue the print job. What does this error mean?

0x61011bef is a general error that the chipset in the printer gives instead of a "carriage jam " error message.

Double check inside the printer as well to ensure that there is no bits and peices stuck insde the printer where the carriage assembly ( where the printheads sit) check to make sure that moves freely.
as well as clean the rollers on the back of the printer... silly yes but it has been know to cause an error if there is built up paper dust on them

I had the same problem and after staying on the phone for an hour with a lady in another country who didnt know what she was talking about i figured it out. The printhead was blocked and the auto clean couldnt clean it so There is a lever at the side of holder for the ink cartidge. if u pull it up it will release the holder. I removed all the cartidges, took the holder out and washed it with in the kitchen sink. turned my pipe on spray. dried it with my hair dryer on low. Poped it back in and it worked.

There is no way to reset the ink levels on this cartridge type yet. Any replacement chips on the internet are violating patent law. Once the chip tells the printer it is empty it will not print no matter how much ink is left in it. There is always a lag time between the introduction of a new cartridge type and the ability to fill it properly. For refills I would recommend Cartridge World when this cartridge type can be refilled.
