I had same problem, and i solved it. I opened my hp 8250 and removed it`s battery. It is located on left side of the printer, on the main board. You need to remove plastic covers , and then remove 3 screws holding board. You can move board just enough to get damn battery out of there. Now it works perfect! I can send you some piccs if you need help. Regards Sasa

according to HP
Each ink cartridge has an expiration date. The purpose of expiration is to protect the printing system and to ensure ink quality. When you receive an ink cartridge(s) are expired message, remove and replace the expired ink cartridge, and then close the message. You can also continue printing without replacing the ink cartridge, by following the instructions on the HP All-in-One or the ink cartridge expiration message on your computer screen. HP recommends replacing the expired ink cartridges. HP cannot guarantee the quality or reliability of expired ink cartridges. Device service or repairs required as a result of using expired ink will not be covered under warranty.

You were a bit vague in your report as to what the exact error is that you are plagued with.Perhaps you have more than one. The 9100’s ink cartridges are “smart cartridges.”They each have a chip in them that reports various cartridge statuses directly to the printer.Diagnosing the problem correctly requires the identification of the particular error message.You can find a list of the error messages and what they mean here: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&taskId=110&prodSeriesId=376170&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=376170&objectID=c00067620 I think that you are experiencing an “INK CARTRIDGE EXPIRED” error.This error is not related to the ‘volume’ of the ink within the cartridge(s) but rather to the actual expiration ‘date(s)’ on the cartridge(s).The expiration date is encoded on the chip that resides on the cartridge.The actual expiration date appears to relate to the date two years after the date that is stamped on the cartridge label.I can’t change the expiration date on the chip—at least not easily or inexpensively—but I have discovered a way around it. The date on the cartridge corresponds to the date on the printer itself.You just need to send the printer back in time to a period before the expiration date and you should be able to print again.A time machine is probably out of the question.Instead, reset the date on the printer to reflect a suitable date. This could conceivably have some negative consequences that I haven’t experienced yet.I’ve only just discovered this ‘hack’.Though I haven’t tested it, the newly assigned, incorrect date will probably appear on any subsequently received fax transmissions.I can also conceive of networking issues if your printer is networked.Some network related instructions require that all network nodes (all devices on the network—computers, printers, etc.) report a time (and date) within just a few minutes of each other to communicate.You’ll just have to try it in your network and see if everything functions properly or within acceptable limits. To change the date on the 9100 printer, you’ll need to access the ‘Maintenance’ menu.Just below the LCD panel on the front of the printer there are a series of buttons as follows: [Return], [Up] & [Down], [Accept], [Left], and [Right].They each have their own unique symbol, but I’m sure you can understand my descriptions.Press and hold BOTH, the [Up] and the [Down] buttons at the same time while you press and release the [Accept] button—then release the other two buttons.If you weren’t taken directly to the ‘Maintenance’ menu (# 10), then use the [Up] or [Down] arrow button to navigate to it and then choose the [Accept] button to select it.Similarly select the ‘Set date and time’ option, and follow the prompts to make the necessary changes using the appropriate buttons. Once you have changed the date and time you may have to turn the printer off and then back on again before the printer will recognize the cartridge(s).In my case, the printer went through an extensive print head alignment. Good luck!
HP, in order to sell more ink, monitors the expiration date of the cartridges installed. Solution is either to buy a new unexpired cartridge from HP or to disable the date monitoring built in to the printer. This latter is done by removing the button cell located inside the D135 printer on the left hand side or by simply slipping a thin piece of plastic between button cell and metal contact. You will no longer have date function on printer, but it won't object to expired cartridges either.
Your Lexmark cartridges may be like my HP ones--they have a chip that the machine reads so they cannot be reused without doing some tricks to fool the printer.
My HP remembers the last 2 or 3 cartridges and also will not use ones that have passed the expiration date that is stamped on the cartridge. I'll tell you what worked for my HP.
Check the date on your ink cartridge. I bet it has expired. If you put in a "new"cartridge but it is even an HP one with an older date, it may not work. I had my printer stop in the middle of a print job. It was printing fine and suddenly would not print. So I refilled the cartridge with an ink kit I had on hand and reinserted it--no go! Then I opened a remanufactured cartridge I had bought some time ago and inserted it. No go, despite the fact I could see ink coming from the jets. I finally gave up and bought a new HP ink cartridge, and it worked just fine. But it bugged me why the new one would work and the other two that seemed just fine would not. Later I learned that HP has a chip that reads the expiration date on the cartridges and that is what keeps those old ones from printing. I found one trick of setting my date on my computer back to a year earlier than the exp date on the cartridge. I saw the date on the remanufactured one I had tried earlier was 2005, so I set my computer date to today date but year 2004. After forcing me to do print alignments several times and take the remanufactured cartridge out and put it back, I got it to print just fine. And that 2005 cartridge that would not work earlier is what I am printing with right now. Be advised, though, if you try the date setback, that HP printer will buck and try every way to not let you use that old cartridge. You must say no to reflashing if HP tries to pull that on you. And you will take out and put back that same cartridge multiple times and keep printing alignment sheets 3 or 4 times before you are successful. But, if you persist, you can get it to work.
I really appericate all your efforts to fix the issue the issue usually occures if any one of the cartridge is defective or low in ink or both the cartridge are defective.
We can isolate the issue only by removing the both the cartridges out of the printer and check for the expiry dates printed on the cartridges as if the cartridges are expired also leads to this message.
If the cartridge are not expired and have minumial ink in it you can try the below procedure to isolate the defective cartridge
Once the both the cartridges are out of the printer insert only the black cartridge in the printer and check for the message if the message is install color cartridge the black cartridge and printer is detecting fine.
If the message is check right cartridge this shows that the black cartridge is defective.
If the message is insert left cartridge or color cartridge remove the black cartridge out and insert only the color cartridge and check with the message if the message is insert the black cartridge the color cartridge is working fine.
And when the color cartridge is in the printer and if the message prompts to check left or color cartridge the color cartridge seems to be defective so replace the defective one will fix the issue
So in isolation we can find the defective cartridge and fix the issue by replacing the defective one..
Hope this will help you to fix the issue..
Wish you success.
HP 7110 Printer
The problem with the printer is it does not work, there are flashing lights and the message it gives you is to turn the power on and turn it back on. Needless to say when I reboot the system and unplug the printer and plug it back up, I get the same message, does anyone have any solutions to this problem????
I have the identical problem with an HP Business Inkjet 1100.
Once cartridges were past date, the printer would no longer print from Windows XP. It would however work perfectly from Linux.
did not find an ini file as mentioned in other posts, and I really did
not want to open the printer as it worked fine in Linux.
The following fixed the problem:
1) Click on Start button, run 2) Type in regedit, enter 3) Navigate to HKLM/software/Hewlett-Packard/HP Printers/HPWH Toolbox/Common 4) In the right panel, right click on Ink, pick modify 5) Change 0100 to 0000 6) Save and reboot
The battery is accessed by opening top then can be seen on extreme left
at front. No need to take it out, slip a strip of plastic like an old
credit card under the clip on top of battery to insulate it. Then do a soft reset (# and 6 and power
down) with the battery insulated. Power up -
Power down, remove insulator power up. Eureka!
