HP #74 Cartridge
1. Put the cartridge on some paper towels in an area where you can tolerate a spill.
2. Peal off the top label.
3. Fill the syringe with 20ml. of black ink.
4. Very S-L-O-W-L-Y inject ink into any hole (they all go to the same sponge, HP just used the same color mold for the black ink cartridges).
5. When finished, replace the top label or leave it off (it will make no difference in the printing).
6. Replace the cartridge and run 1 - 3 cleaning cycles as per printer instructions.
Or print the following pages:

For best results, leave cartridge in printer for 8 hours after refilling so the ink can saturate the entire sponge.
A Refill Kit should include Ink plus the following:
One 30cc Syringe

I think you need to open your printers "Properties" and set and apply that new cartridges have been installed to get past the problem. It's been a while but I had to do this with mine last time I refilled them after they showed depleted.

you must buy a brand new cartridge do not refill your old cartridge and use it again it may cause malfunction of your printer..one thing you have encounter is " the cartridge is not recognized"

Try to get your printer to recognize the new cartridge; go to start -
printer and faxes -right click on printer - preferences (printing
preferences) -settings -load factory settings. Print test page Ctrl+P
Please post if that worked.
