How to Reset the Ink Level on the HP OfficeJet 7110

By Tara Kimball

The HP OfficeJet 7110 printer includes a built-in monitoring system for the ink cartridges to alert a user when ink is running low. When you replace the cartridges with new ones, the system resets automatically due to the chip built into the cartridge. If you refill ink cartridges, the printer may not recognize that the ink level has changed. You’ll need to disable the monitoring service and reactivate it to reset the system.
