Hello vonmatt,

CIS admin gives you a very good option, but as you might have noticed it does not change the need to continuously have to go through the head cleaning process. Very simple answer based on other forums and personal experience, this type of system is designed to be used continuously therefore, it will be a problem that has not been corrected because you have to first think about physics and simple hydraulics. Has anything changed since your last air vent plug removal? btw, which one did you move? the one in the back of the cartridge? or the tanks?

How long have you had the refillable cartridges? You can attempt to use anything metal like a flat head screwdriver or anything that is metal like a staple to charge the two gold contacts on the top of the cartridge which are closer together. On the chip itself you will see the two round gold contacts. If for some reason the cartridge is still not able to recognize that means that the battery on the back of the chip needs to be replaced.

Can you go into the printer settings to see if there is an option for Print quality and also one for paper type? If you find an option for print quality you want to make sure to select 'best or HP photo quality' and for the paper type you can select 'hp photo paper'

Has anyone found a workaround for this for those of us moronic enough to install the update without checking first?  FYI, I discovered the problem when refilling all four cartridges on my WF-3520.  The black cartridge was the only one not recognized.  I placed an OEM black cartidge in, and it prints fine even in color.   Angry Huh

The air vent plugs have been removed from the cartridges.  Also, the final print quality is fine according to the print quality diagnostic page.

Here is a link to a few pictures that illustrate the issue.


The first picture shows a page after the printer has not been used for a few days.  The next three pictures show the results of the 3 cleaning cycles.  Then there is a diagnostic page after the cleaning cycles have completed.  Finally, I print the original document again, and it turns out fine.

Have you removed the air vent plugs from the cartridges? Also do you see a good nozzle check pattern when you print with the cartridges?

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!
