HP Compatible Ink Cartridge 564 / 920 XL Cartridges is available. (Updated 07 Apr 2012)
Check Chip Version: Flip behind the cartridge, to see the type of IC Chip your existing cartridge is using. If using the old type, it can be removed and transfered successfully. The instructions are below.
However, if your printer is using the NEW CHIP, the new design will cause the chip to be damaged during removal process. Contact us for spare chips such that you can have it fixed into the printer and use our compatible cartridges.
The cartridges comes with IC chip at the bottom of the cartridge, which compatible IC chip has not been developed yet. Hence we will need to use back the old IC chip. The tranfering of the IC chip is very simple.
Step 1: Remove the IC Chip by using a pen knife. Do not bend the chip, simply slide under the chip. The IC is attached to the ink cartridge by a double-side tape.
Step 2: Transfer the IC Chip to the plastic adaptor provided. No glue is needed since the back of the IC chip already has residue double-side tape.
Step 3: After the IC chip is stuck onto the plastic adaptor, it is now ready to be placed into the printer. This IC chip shall be placed into the printer permanently. The shape of the adaptor will fit into the slot in the printer like a LEGO brick.
Step 4: Then install a new ORINK compatible ink cartidge into the printer. Printer is ready to print. When ink is used up, simply replace a new tank. IC Chip shall remain inside permanently.
Note: The IC chip functions like a ID Chip such that the printer know that the right color cartridge is installed into the printer. All our ORINK branded ink cartridges comes with ink level sensor, such that when the ink is beginning to run out, the printer will know.
Notice the prism like plastic at the transparent portion of the ink tank. Ink is monitored based on light refraction, and when ink tank is empty, total internal refraction occurs, signalling to the printer all the ink is used up. In fact this is based on Canon think tank ink cartridges released 10 years ago. In our opinion, to have both IC chip and a physical prism ink sensor is redundant. 1 feature is sufficient. The extra development cost both the chip as well as the matching software could instead be returned to HP loyal customers through lower ink cartridge cost.
