refilling printer cartridges

Hi

I have a HP 3822 printer that takes hp c6615n (15) black and hp6578d (78) colour cartridges.

The black was running out so I recently purchased a DIY refil pack the refill was successful but I have since discovered the ink monitor may or may not stop the cartridge working once it thinks it is empty.

How or can I disable this feature?

Thanks in advance

Hi

Followed the procedure on the link.

Worked fine for the colour cartridge the first time, but refuses to work on the black cartridge?

This is after following the extra note about taping the top 3 and top 2 contacts.

Any ideas anyone?
