Question about HP Photosmart C5180 All-In-One InkJet Printer
My printer started printing very slowly and then suddenly told me ''print cartridge(s) missing or not detected.'' The cartridges are there and both full. I took them out and put them back repeatedly.
It's actually a HP Photosmart Express D5360 but couldn't find a listing for this model on your site.
Hi I don't have a 5360 but I use a 4180. Sometimes the printer can be a bit temperamental and sensitive. Any misalignment of the cartridge will mean the printer either won't recognize it or some kind of error. So usually I use both thumbs and carefully align the cartridge and gently push it in. Usually it works. When it doesn't work then I check the back of the cartridge that has the contact points to see if they are clean. If it has some ink on it then more than likely the contact points on the printer also has. So I would clean them carefully. Don't wipe the pins, but dab w/ toilet tissue. Not Facial Tissue like Kleenex. It leaves fibers that tend to clog the jets or nozzles. Hope this helps.
