The HP C5380 printer is designed to print high-quality documents and professional-looking photos. When you're using the HP C5380, a low-ink message may occur. This usually happens after refilling and reinstalling a cartridge. The printer typically tracks the ink usage and issues a warning when the ink level reaches 80%. When a refilled ink cartridge is installed, sometimes the printer does not recognise it. You can easily resolve this problem with a few basic steps.
