I have a HP Deskjet F4180 All-in-one printer which would not print any documents or even the test page. It shows that there is no ink, but I just refilled my ink. It used to say low ink before too, but it would print, however, now it would not have any reponse.

When you say that it reports no ink that this is from the lights on the printer and not the software.

The problem could be one of the following:
Arrow The contacts on the cartridge are not clean - try cleaning them with some alcohol on a cotton bud (it's the electrical contact that looks similar to a mobile phone SIM card contacts)
Arrow The cartridge(s) could be faulty, replace them with brand new, genuine HP cartridges
Arrow The printer could be faulty - you can tell this if the first 2 steps do not resolve the problem.

I have no idea what you are trying to say/ask.

If you have a new query, please post a new topic.
