I have HP 6180 photosmart printer and when I replace the light Cyan with a brand new cartridge it still tells me it is empty and will not let me print at all, even in black. I have replaced many ink cartridges over the years but never had this problem.

Second: I have no hints or help for you.
Posting to more easily follow this thread because I had an issue like that with one of my other printers... I ended up getting rid of it and getting a new one because it was frustrating.
I have included a document for troubleshooting ink cartridges. Shows you how to reset the printer and clean the contacts on the cartridges.
Here is another document that provides information how to check the ink levels, calibrate the printer and clean the printhead.
Hope that helps.
