I have a set of refillable cartridges for my HP Officejet Pro 8600.  After installing and going through a cleaning/aligning cycle I get good output.  However, after not printing for a day or two the colors are washed out.  Once I go through another cleaning cycle the quality is back to normal again.

This process repeats itself again and again.  If I don't print for a day or two I have to do the cleaning cycle.

This issue only appears with the refillable cartridges. Other prefilled cartridges don't suffer from this problem.

Any recommendations?

The steps you took were a little extreme but I am glad you were able to get the printer up and running again.

If you ever have any questions feel free to contact us. Have a great day!

If the error message is showing that it is unable to detect the ink levels you will be able to disable the ink monitoring which I will include a Youtube link below on how you are able to do this step.


Depending on what other problems we can definitely attempt to help you out.

Can I have your email address? I can send you photos on how to remove the battery from the chip frame.

Well I maintain that my situation was pretty extreme then.
And I must have got it back in perfect because it looks like a million bucks again.
I eventually got it, but it was a long drawn out process. I just don't understand how it got that bad in the first place.

I don't have any empty carts to use as cleaning cartridges, so what I did was took apart my cis and used them.
I removed all the ink from the black and yellow carts and filled them with the iso alcohol and ammonia free windex mixture.
I took apart a syringe and fit the lower half into the cart where the tubes go and used it as a funnel/ reserve. Did a couple head cleanings and queued up 40 full page black are yellow prints and just kept going until the ink faded out. Takes a while with the ink delivery system these printers use.
Once I knew it was in the head I just let it sit with the head parked over a paper towel for 6 or 7 hours.
Few more head cleanings, let it sit some more.
Put ink back in it the next day and primed it up.

Not saying I want to go through that again, but it worked.

Ok, I bought the CISS in February for my Canon printer and I've had headaches with this thing since day one.  I've only gotten it to print out maybe about 100 pages correctly since I've had it and all the other times I've had to do countless cleanings, cartridge removal and reinstallations, and the problem seems to be getting worse.  I've wasted so much ink trying to get this thing to print out right.

I've downloaded the video from Youtube to watch at least 10 times before I even attempted to install it just to make sure that it's not "user error". 

Now I'm stuck on Support Code 1683 which is saying that the magenta and cyan cartridges need to be replaced since it can't properly detect ink levels. 

The CISS is on the same level surface as the printer and the ink tanks have ink inside them. 

I have no clue on what to due as I've taken these two cartridges out maybe 100 times now and put them back in, while on, while off, and nothing is working.  It's driving me nuts!  I feel like I should've just bought the cartridges that allow you to refill using the syringe.

If the alignment failed I would recommend to remove the print head and re install it. Once you re install it you can turn off the printer and unplug it from the wall. When you connect it back to the wall you should be able to run a print head alignment.
