I think my HP is particularly quirky (like its owner), where it doesn't like any remanufactured cartridges. I've tried reman's from 3 different places, but the only cartridges it'll print with is the real mccoy.
What an inkjet snob!
*sigh* Another deal, slipping through my fingers ...

spigidygak, did you realize there is an affiliate code in your URL? I don't know if Apex put it there or not since there is no note for that purpose.
jujubees, dunno which carts you are referring to. Generally, HP has been making their cartridges more and more unreliable when refilled. Remanufactured carts can fail if the sealing tape is not perfectly put on to keep air away from the print heads.
HP Cartridges that I've refilled include:
HP 51629 - black - earlier versions can be refilled up to at least 10 times if you never let the ink run out. Running on empty burns out the resistive heads because the ink is also used as coolant. Dataproducts makes an excellent refill for these. Once you get the hang of refilling these (a convoluted process with many hoops and woe if you miss a step) it becomes easy. I have a black cart from 1997 that is still working in my DJ690C, although I've replaced some newer carts to burned out heads. People who cannot RTFM should not refill these 51629 carts because there are a lot of steps.
HP 51645 - black - easy to refill and keeps on working in my DJ970Cse. Two refills and hasn't burned out yet. HP tried to prevent easy refilling by disallowing plugs in their design, but you can use a metal ball to plug up the refill hole. I use a stainless steel setscrew instead. These carts can be refilled almost in your sleep.
HP 51649 - colour - earlier versions can be refilled up to at least 3 times. The trick is to never let it run out of ink before refilling. The instant any of the colours runs dry is when that print head has its life deperately shortened. These are more sensitive to clogging than black so use a quality refill like one from Dataproducts, NuJet, or CompuJet. If you don't use your printer for a whole month, there is the chance that the colour cart can clog up due to dried ink inside the nozzles.
HP C6578 - colour - this is the famous DJ-970C (DJ-930C) print cart that has been engineered to be unreliable after refilling. NuJet ink seems to work in these (says other users) but I've had bad luck with Repeat-O-Type ink which has always clogged up in every cart I've used it on (100% failure). I've only used Repeat-O-Type refills with this cart so far, but will switch to Nujet ink and see if I have better luck. If anyone has good luck refilling these carts, please post your experiences in this thread and we will all learn some VALUABLE advice!!! These carts have a $52 cost, and so are worth an attempt to refill.
Refillers might also find use in my post at http://www.gotapex.com/forums/showthread.php?postid=67800#post67800
When a few of the nozzles go bad, I don't toss the cart because I use it as an excuse to experiment with weird ink mixes (no fear now of the head going bad, right?). I've found Quink makes a poor refill, but I am about to switch over to a brown refill ink in a 51629 cart and if it works out, perhaps I will switch over to a dark brown monochrome for awhile....

Cool.... ~$25 for a black AND color cartridge refill for my Epson 860. Nice deal.

Exclusive post for Got|Apex. Okay, this has got to be exclusive since it was an answer from a company rep to my posted usenet question and I haven't seen this company posted on Got|Apex.

I am not affiliated with the above company. I will probably buy their refill kit for the C6578A colour cartridge as various people have been having good luck with it for multiple refills. I have had bad luck with the Repeat-O-Type refill ink (but that could have been random bad luck with two HP carts) so I will try Reink for now. Reinkkit sent email stating that they currently don't use NuJet as their ink supplier. I just don't want a refill maker rebadging C1823 cart refill ink as their C6578 refill ink.
I went to the Reinkkit website, and their C6578 cartridge refill inks are higher priced than what I'm used to paying for the 51649 carts, so that ink must have some expensive secret ingredient or something in it. Anyways, you have to work to get the correct listing since their search tool at their online store returns the wrong result when you enter a request for the 970 printer type. Their site is under progress as mentioned on their homepage.
To be fair, a strong competitor to Reinkkit is Netwares.com (http://www.netwares.com) and a number of their customers have reported success with DJ-970 refills and also being able to refill the C6578 cart more than once.

Startide: Thank you for noticing. I changed it from someone else's code (not sure who) to the Got | Apex? code.

Sorry about that. I had no idea it was an affiliate url.

In Reference to Startide's Post:
I work for the company he mentions in his post (as a matter of fact, I was the source of the post he found in UseNET). In the post, he states:
"Their ink manufacturing supplier is supposedly NuJet, so my confidence is higher knowing that. I just don't want a refill maker rebadging C1823 cart refill ink as their C6578 refill ink"
Unfortunately, this is incorrect. We are in no way affiliated, nor do we receive supplies from NuJet. We take pride in developing our own ink formulations and have no affiliations other than with our parent company, Definitive Data Solutions, Inc.
I think Startide is confusing us with Renewable Resources (www.reink.com) - who, I belive, has just changed hands due to bankruptcy - although this is not confirmed. Our web page is http://www.reinkkit.com and our company name is Definitive Data Solutions.
He is correct in stating, however, that we do manage specific ink formulations on a per-cartridge basis - therefore we do not use generic ink formulations which compromise print quality.
Hope this clears the air.

Ooops. I actually had confused reink and reinkit. My bad.
Anyways, the NuKote refill ink (office depot, others) has worked for the black 51645 cartridge two times now, so I am pleased that it seems to be a reliable refill source. I am particularly pleased that the setscrew method works out so well. Now, if only Office Depot could be convinced to carry non-generic C6578 refills as they do for the 51649 colour carts.

Also BUY.COM has a $20 coupon off $100 order and they carry HP DeskJet ink
cartridges. Use the link below to go to the coupon page and then it's a
direct link from there to BUY.COM to get the coupon in your shopping

I just picked up 2 original 51645 and one C6578DN for my DJ930C (the e-stamp free printer) for $65 + tax at Staples.com. I used the $20 off $50 coupon to get it down to $65.
I once heard of a cartridge recycler that would send you one refurbished HP cartridge for every three empties you send in. Does anyone know the details?

Try extracartidges.com for both ink refills and 3rd party cartridges. Black ink cartridges for my Epson 640 are less than $3.

I've had a lot more luck since Sept2000 in refilling the quirky HP C6578 colour cart. Descriptions and URL to the usenet posts are in the detailed thread located at:
That thread above has a lot of commentary about refilling of ink cartridges and a list of URL that various people have found to sell refills that work.
There are a number of places that sell generic or partial refill kits that don't really work. They are just jumping onto the bandwagon to make their quick buck, change their business name, and do the same ploy over again. Stick with refill companies that people have had good experience with.

Since you brought this thread back, i have since found better deals @ computer shows (at least the one in Pamona, CA has this). I got black carts for $4 and color carts for $6 for my Epson Stylus 860. They work great..
This place also had carts for any Canon, Hp, and other printers.
