HP C6200 INK level reset

I'was in a lot of trouble with my HP printer, new ink ,almost immedialty declared empty ..... and found a solution


There is a code to reset the C6200 INK levels (RESET is nulify situation)

There is a need for 2 extra buttons : RO red eye removal
AF print picture


As you press RO and AF simultanious you get into a service menu, i did some exploring and found following
probably there is more to find

YOu are then requested to enter a code the classical one is RO AF RO (in sequence .... but there are others )
