    2 printer problems.....

    I'm using an HP Deskjet D1360 printer, and I've started using the XL cartridges as they seem more economical.
    Is it possible to reprog. so the printer recognises the larger capacity?
    I'm just printing until the quality drops off at the moment, after the printer says the ink's run out.

    Also, when the printer thinks it's low on ink, it displays a warning, I think I must have ticked "do not show this again" on the kids log in, and now it will not print on that log in.
    It'll work on the one log in, as when it tells me the ink is low, I just click OK, and it will print anyway.

    Any way of getting that pane back, and unticking that box?

    Thanks.

    Here is the support site for the HP Deskjet D1360 printer. You might want to add and save this site to your browser favorites/bookmarks list so you can readily refer to it if needed.

    According to the product specifications section, it uses HP 21 and HP 22 cartridges. There's no mention of HP 21XL and HP 22XL cartridges.

    Even if the cartridge boxes say they can be used with the D1360, I'm not aware of any way that it can be reprogrammed for the larger cartridges.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------

    Go to Start - Run - MSCONFIG - OK - Startup(tab). There should be one or more entries that are HP-related. Advise the names of those entries in the "Startup Item" column. I'll advise you which ones to check or leave unchecked.

    I've got the following set up after following advice from one of the online startup prog. lists.

    hphupd06 ticked
    HPWuSchd2 unticked
    hphmon06 unticked
    hpsysdrv unticked
    HP Digital Imaging unticked

    You are correct about the 21 22 cartridges, the XL ones are the same size, but have more ink in them, pretty much how the refillers fill them I suppose.

    Are you getting Refills or New Cartridges ??
    The refills can't reset the ink "Level Gauge" in the cartridge.
    I just have to wait till mine run out .. Then I know I'm empty.

    I figure I get about 4 times the ink for about twice the price and 3 less trips to the store using XLs
    I'm using 74 & 75 XLs

    The XL ones are new.
    When I have got the old ones refilled in the past (normal 21/22), the guy resets the cartridges so the printer recognises the level again.

    I do as you do, waiting for the ink to run out, I was just wondering if I could reprog the printer as the XL's are what I'll be buying from now on.

    I think the ink level info comes from the Cartridge .. Not the software .. emphasis on Think.
    Some fuel gauges can be reset .. But didn't think the newer versions could.
    I don't like installing all of HPs software anyway .. Just the basic drivers .. So, I've always waited till I ran out.

    hphupd06 ticked - can also be unchecked.

    http://www.sysinfo.org/startuplist.php?filter=hphupd06

    HPWuSchd2 unticked - leave unchecked.

    http://www.sysinfo.org/startuplist.php?filter=HPWuSchd2

    hphmon06 unticked - leave unchecked.

    http://www.sysinfo.org/startuplist.php?filter=hphmon06

    hpsysdrv unticked - your choice.

    http://www.sysinfo.org/startuplist.php?filter=hpsysdrv

    HP Digital Imaging Monitor unticked - your choice.

    http://www.sysinfo.org/startuplist.php?filter=hp+digital+imaging

    I have 3 HP all-in-ones and leave all the HP-related entries in the startup list unchecked and all the HP-related entries in the services list set to Manual without any ill effects.

    Thanks for the info and advice.
    I'll just have to carry on printing 'til the ink runs out!

    I've disabled the other prog in the Startup, another couple of seconds off the boot up is always appreciated. :0)
