hi,

as you are using a refilled cartridge, it is causing this problem. the thickness of ink in a hp genuine cartridge and a refilled cartridge varies. and also the refilled cartridge may make your printer faulty. so it is good to try with a new hp genuine ink cartridges.

thanks and regards

You have to take off the clear strip of plastic over the copper area, or the printer will not detect it. There should be a green pull-tab on the cartridge.

Same problem with me.
So:
I openede the whole box ( 4 screws ) in the corners. Then I presed the tiny belt on the left side to its socket, cleaned the contacts of the cartridges (56,57) with water and made them dry.

Then I reched the position of the small door which is ment to be opened once you wnat to replace the cartridge.

After this the printer works again.

Try this while standing on one leg.

1. OPen ink caridge lid.
2. Remove the affected cartridge.
3. Close lid
4. Try to print. This will fail, but that is ok.
5. Open the ink cartridge door again.
6. Remove the other cartridge.
7. Unplug the unit.
NOTE FOR THE NEXT STEP
This can be risky and I asume no responsibility for pressng too ******* the contact points, havng too much alcohol, using the wrong kind of alcohol, or not using alcohol or other such problems that can occur.

8. Using ONLY alcholo lightly brushthe contact points
9. Lightly clean the cartridge cotact points.
10. Plug in the unit
11. Install the cartridges.
12. Go through the alignment process.
13. Switch to the other leg, those with one leg only are exempt.
14. You just might be ready to print again.

I know this sounds crazy but this just worked for me.

Yes. Never refill or buy refilled ink carts.

The exclamation mark is on and the screen is flickering hp j4580 officejet all in one


A flashing exclamation mark is typically associated with a sever cartridge error (i.e. "refer to documentation" / "incompatible cartridges", "print cartridge(s) problem" etc.) typically indicates the internal micro-electronics of the HP #901 / 901XL cartridge are damaged. Have you tried replacing the ink cartridge with a new HP genuine cartridge to confirm?

NOTE: The cartridge's electrical wire runs at rear and lower side of the ink cartridge are very delicate and are somewhat susceptible to ink attack over time, which can lead to premature failures. In addition, the older the cartridge the higher the chance of an internal electrical failure. I suggest you first run a 'Tap 41' diagnostic test to check cartridges electrical health (this is a forced test); you may also bypass the error (temporarily) on all models which use HP 901 cartridges. Refer to Inkjet411 youtube videos below:

Hp officejet j6480 cartridge error problems


This type of fatal cartridge error (i.e. "refer to documentation" / "incompatible cartridges", etc.) typically indicates the internal micro-electronics of the HP #74/75 cartridge are damaged. The cartridge's electrical wire runs at rear and lower side of the ink cartridge, are very delicate and are somewhat susceptible to ink attack over time, which can lead to premature failures. However, our test group has also seen these failures with brand new cartridges. In addition, the older the cartridge the higher the chance of an internal electrical failure. I suggest you first run a 'Tap 41' diagnostic test to check cartridges electrical health (this is a forced test); you may also bypass the error (temporarily) on most models which use HP 74/75 cartridges. Refer to Inkjet411 youtube videos below on how to access respective printer's service menu and correct:

You need to decide upon a suitable replacement. HP recommends using their ink cartridges, but you can also choose to use a cartridge from a different brand. If you have a higher volume of prints, you may even consider refilling old cartridges to cut down on costs.

Remove the old cartridge by removing the main cover. The cartridge carriers will automatically move to the center. Press the top of the carriers to open the plastic lids covering the cartridges. Gently press down on the old cartridge and slide it out.

Install your new HP printer ink cartridge. Remove the blue protective strip from the contacts and place the cartridge in the carriers. Press down gently until the cartridge sits in its position. Replace the carrier lid and main printer cover. Restart the printer and take some test prints.

I had the same problem. I called hp and spent an hour running through the troubleshooting things that I'd already done. They ended up sending me a new ink cartridge, and surprisingly, it worked. For some reason, the printer refused to recognize a nearly full ink cartridge. Go figure. It seems to be working for now, but it's a huge waste of ink and money. If you have the patience for it, call hp and see if they will replace your cartridges.
