I bought the deskjet 3050 all in one, after doing my research I understood the HP encouraged refills. However I am nit able to get my printer to print after I have refilled the cartridges? Why is this?
I am in the process of checking out my warranty and have found the serial number but I cannot locate the product number. Can anyone help me please? It just seems silly that I cannot refill the cartridges but I can buy a brand new printer with 2 new cartridge for the £26.00 - obviously this would be silly to buy another printer just for the cartridges - wouldn't it? If anyone can help please reply. Kindest regards

HP's page on the topic of refills is covered in this post
What product number are you having difficulty locating? If you have a DJ 3050, then the compatible cartridges are HP301 black (or HP301xl black) and HP301 color (or HP301xl color). For any queries on cartridge compatibility, check out SureSupply
For any queries on warranty, the links below may help
Hope this helps

Thank-you, I am trying to refil the black on the HP301 with ink, rather than buying another cartrdige. It's not registering that it's been filled up. It's just saying the ink is low?

I have the same problem. after I started researching I found that there is a class action suit for HP not mentioning that!
So far I found that I'm screwed on this issue. I think HP plans to give $1-2 off coupons - to make it all better. HUH!
I can re-ink my own & would if the printer would accept it. To save $1 or 2 off a cartridge DOESN'T ALMOST even fix it!
ALso, my daughter picked out an HP laptop....What a piece of ****. It went back during the warranty for screen issues. Now it's like 1 1/2 years old & the screen is totally blank.
HP- never again!!
