There are no foams inside the printer for normal operation. Unless this is the one that was inside it during shipping but you were not able to remove it. In any case if you are not having any problems then you are good to go. dont worry about it.

Hi all, I would suggest you update your printer drivers, try this, follow instructions exactly as written:

Create a new folder on your desktop and name it newhpdrivers(substitute your manufacturer in new name). Un-intall printer and printer software completely. Go to manufacturers website and navigate to their drivers/downloads or support menu. Select your model, choose the relevant software and download to the new folder you created on your desktop(watch for the light yellow bar at the top of window viewing pane, click on this and choose – download file - . Power down your computer. Reconnect the printer to the computer and turn printer on. Power on pc. Windows will detect new hardware and ask if you have the manufacturers install cd or a location to check for install files. Direct the wizard to your new software, follow the rest of the setup instructions and your done.

There is an issue with the purge unit inside the printer.
If you are under warranty you are in luck, but first ask yourself how old is the printer and is it worth fixing and if not get a new one.

Check all wires and connections. If u confirm power reaching the innards of unit then there is an issue with the power supply of printer.

I think I have come up with a solution!

When the error happens:

Open the cover and re-seat the cartridge.
Tilt the whole printer forward about 30 degrees or more
Close the cover.

This has worked for me multiple times now. I think there is a small sensor behind the contact chip that detects ink levels and when my printer is flat the level of ink is lower than the sensor, when I tilt the printer the error vanishes because the ink covers the sensor. Though I am not sure why the software in the printer determines that there are duplicate cartridges instead of just a low ink warning.

If you still can't get it try taking a standard pencil eraser and gently rub it over the contacts to clean off any oxidation, also do this to the prongs that contact the chip that are inside the cartridge carrier, They bend easily so do it very lightly.

Error code 5100 /this error is an error within the printer. This error means that there is
something obstructing the printing process. Check inside your printer through the gears that
you can see under the lid. There should be something obstructing the gears such as dirt or
in my case popcorn. Check VERY thoroughly.
