Resetting HP Printer Cartridge
Printer resetting is the process of resetting printer settings and its components. The replaceable component in a printer which contains the ink in an inkjet printer is known as the cartridge. The resetting process is similar to the factory restoring of systems. Resetting of cartridge includes ink refilling. The new HP printers come with new software which contain estimated ink level session. This tool actually helps you to estimate the level of ink in a cartridge. Thus you can avoid the out of ink issue. This ink refilling is also an important part of the resetting of the cartridge. The serial number contacts with the Contact Strip are used to estimate the level of ink. Whenever a cartridge shows low ink, the serial number will display an error message. The internal memory settings are located in the firmware and this remembers the ink levels. You have to reset various other settings in the printer cartridge.

The first step that you have to perform is to connect the cartridge to the printer. To print the page in a proper way, you need to check the alignment. An old printer cartridge is to be connected after removing the existing one. You have to check that the printer has an alignment page through which it identifies it as a different cartridge from the previous one.
The printer cartridge can be reset through two methods. You have to connect the printer cable to the system. You have to select 'System Utilities' from the files and folders accessed through the 'Search' option. Followed by this you have to select the 'Reset Printer' option. This will help you to alter the settings associated with the printer. There is also one software utility to adjust the cartridge settings and you just need to run this utility in your system after proper downloading.
If you do not perform the cartridge resetting in a proper manner, it will affect the performance of the printer itself. If the ink cartridge is not connected well, the printer will show the error message "An ink cartridge cannot be recognized" and you cannot continue the resetting. So before resetting the cartridge, you need to check all these connection settings and all physical settings.
