the air vents are open? are they open on the ciss? if so this is not what you want. you want the pressure to build up in the system, so if this is the case, install the plugs on the ciss to help it build up.

you might have to do that a couple times.
clean the CISS chips with rubbing alcohol, install em.  if it doesnt work, do the whole reinstall the old cartridges, turn off and unplug the printer for 3 to 5 minutes at the least, then install the CISS again. 
sometimes it takes like 3 times. It can be a b*tch sometimes, but when it does work you'll be super happy lol.
Hope that helped you.

Installed the HP 564 refillable cartridges in a Desckjet 3520. So far no test gives any kind of decent result.

Have cleaned heads many times.

Magenta and yellow seem to work. Black seldom appears and smudged when it does. Cyan occasionally I think.

No test produces coherent results. It's mostly just smudges.

Have removed cartridges and unplugged the machine for several minutes, then plugged in the machine and reinstalled.

All the air vents are definitely open. All cartridges seem to have ink. Magenta getting low now!

Any ideas what to do next?

Thanks in advance!


After many cleaning cycles, got the other colors to appear consistently, but no black. A youtube video suggested cleaning heads by printing at highest quality only the color of the cartridge you are trying to clean. This has got the black flowing now. It's a mess, but is often legible. That's progress.

Any good tips on cleaning much appreciated. Will update.

I had to UNCLOGG the yellow...so now that works. 
I'm still getting the 'THe MESSAGE "The following ink cartridges appear to be missing or damaged" is still there!! "
I've placed the old carts in the printer and turned it off and unplugged it for a couple of hours, took out the old carts and replaced the CIS INK carts and still NO GO!

So, I have in my hands my 2nd replacement and all installed. 
The first set of CIS for my HP 7500a the yellow was all over the place. 
This replacement set had tons of AIr in the line and  the yellow had Black on the top of the sponge when I went to prime it!  Gosh!!!  It's been ever so FRUSTRATING! Nothing should be this Hard!!!!!
Now, I primed ALL the stinkin' colors and the YELLOW will NOT prime!!  the syringe just springs back up and the air still is in the line. 
Then, I tried to print again and it said the carts are missing or damaged!!
Seriously?  This is getting ridiculous!

have you looked at my post? 
You might want to reinstall your old cartridges, and then unplug your machine, leave it unplugged for 3 minutes or so..

Check out my post, its the one below this one.  Ive had to reinstall the CISS several times, as the HP printers seem to clog after a couple thousand prints lol

I have an HP Pro 8600 and have tried to install the CISS. The yellow cartridge keeps showing that it is missing or damaged. I have taken them out and put the HP ones in, unplugged and reinstalled the CISS cartridges, cleaned everything, multiple times and I can't get it to work. Any help would be appreciated. I have so many things to print and we live an hour from town.I hate to make the drive and buy the original cartridges since I just bought this if there is an easy fix.

Maybe a priming could help.

Take a look at the following video and follow the steps on how to prime the CISS.

More than likely this was caused by the tanks sitting higher than the printer itself. If the tanks sit higher, then gravity will pull on the ink and it will spill wherever the cartridges are sitting. Please sit the tanks on the same level as the base of the printer.

Hello. We currently do not have any specific instructions for the 1430, but if you follow the steps for the 1400, the installation is identical.
