Question about Lexmark Office Equipment & Supplies
I removed the black ink cartridge and now when I put it back it says "Black Cartridge missing or printhead damage may occur? Please help
Please make sure you are inserting only genuine Lexmark cartridges in your printer. Lexmark does not recommend the use of refilled, re-manufactured or clone cartridges.
If you are using original supplies, yet the error continues to display even after trying to re-insert the cartridge about 2-3 times, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center to have your genuine Lexmark black cartridge replaced.

i dunno what i did but i had the same problem, what i did was connected my usb to my computer held down the stop reset button and just started pressing buttons starting from the left and going to the right and then all of a sudden it started working. its not a techinical fix, but its an unmodern fix.

1. clean the ink cartridge contacts both in the printer and the cartridge with a lint free cloth or a cotton swab. and try inserting the ink cartridges again. if it wont work proceed to step 2.
2. unplug the power cord at the back of the printer
3. press and hold # and 3 keys at the same time and plug the power cord back in. Do not release the two keys. wait until the printer would say "partial nvram reset" or anything that says "reset". if this still would not resolve the problem
4. do the same process as 2 & 3 but instead of # and 3 try # and 6. instead of saying "partial nvram reset" it should say "semi-full nvram reset". and if it would not work better go to an onsite technician. but if your printer if brand new return it to the retailer and exchange it. but before you do that try calling HP technician they would instruct you to the things i have given you. Just tell them what you have had done and asked them to replace the ink cartridges. This are the informations the agent would ask you about the ink cartridge
part number and also the expiration date.
try to ask for a replacement first if it would not resolve it. then go to a technician. I could not assure you that a technician could fix it because i have troubleshoot this kind of problems and there are alot of printer parts that needs to be fixed. Usually i suggest my clients to buy a new printer instead

Try to reset to factory .
Remove ink cartridges and print head.
Power off machine and unplug for 10-15 minutes.
Restart machine and install head and cartridges.

Try this one
Take out the inks and printhead
Leave the cartridge door open, then unplug the power cord from the back of the printer while the access door is open
Close the cartridge door once the cord is unplugged
Reconnect the powercord, turn on the printer, then your printer will look for your printhead "Printhead missing or not installed correctly..."
Then put everything back. make sure it will snap in to place. Then print a calibration page, then scan it. This is just over writing the error message.
