Question about HP PhotoSmart C4280 Laser Printer
I JUST REPLACED MY BLACK INK CARTRIDGE AND NOW MY PRINTER SCREEN SAYS THAT THE INK CARTRIDGE CANNOT BE DETECTED OR IT IS MISSING...IT WASNT DOING THIS WITH THE OLD INK CARTRIDGE SO I PUT IN THE OLD CARTRIDGE AGAIN AN IT WAS SAYING THE SAME THING. SOMEONE PLEASE HELP. THANKS.
The cartridge is not seated properly and/or the contacts are dirty. Use a cotton swab with rubbing alcohol and gently clean both the copper contacts on the cartridge and inside the cartridge socket. Allow several minutes to dry and then try again.

Tips for a great answer:
Remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and connect the Printer to be detected and installed. Check printer properties to see the ink levels.
Use head cleaning before a test is taken . It is possible that the head is not reacting to the need of the command , can be an issue with ink drying , can also be poor ink cartridge contacts
