My OfficeJet 8600 Pro (n911a?) gives a repeated message of depleted ink levels (Cyan and Yellow) even after I have replaced them with genuine HP 951 ink cartridges. I am certain that I have installed them correctly (I have done this in the past with no problems) and I have turned the machine off and on again several times. I have checked firmware and software updates and it appears that everything is up to date. Any other thoughts?

Thanks for responding.
I ended up calling HP Support and the representative walked me through a bunch of steps to try to resolve the problem. Unfortunately, my printer has a hardware problem that cannot be resolved. The only solution was to go out and buy a new printer. I guess the operational lifespan of HP printers these days is only 21 months. Dissappointing.

The troubleshooting guide did not help. First, I had already tried this. But I did it again. I will call support. But you can bet that if I am told I need to buy parts or a new printer when I have just installed the first new ink cartridges, that it will NOT be an HP printer.
