HI george,

Two things

1. cartridge is defective. call hp for replacement.

2. there is a problem with the printers contacts for cartridges. call hp for service or replacement if still within warranty

Hope this helps

    On the printer itself, on the ink carriage. some models are not detachable. so if you can't really access it then chances is we should have someone check on it and open the unit

You need to clean the metal plate sensor inside the ink carriage with isopropyl alcohol and cotton.

    Hi there, the sensor/connector is just the metal plate inside the printer carriage, and it is the the plate that comes in contact with the cartridge connector.

    The ink carriage is the place were you put cartridges in.

    If this is not the problem then the cartridge can be defective, see if you have a replacement one to test it.

    If cleaning the sensor ( the sensor are the contacts inside the carriage) does not help, then follow the detailed solution from HP here:

    Check Print Cartridge Light Flashing

My hp 5510 photosmart printer will not print in black


Make sure you have run a cleaning cycle before spending money replacing anything. Sometimes the print heads will get a little dry and a color or multiple colors will stop printing. Have you replaced the black cartridge recently? Make sure you have pulled all the tape off correctly. There is an air hole that needs to be opened usually under the tape that will prevent the ink from flowing out of the cartridge. Let us know what your results are after checking the cartridge and running a cleaning.

Have an HP PSC 1510 printer. I put in a new genuine HP Tri-Color (93) printer cartridge as I usually do and the "Check Printer" cartridge started flashing. Also flashing on the printer is the...


Problem After you install a print cartridge, one of the following messages appears on the color graphics display:
  • Incorrect Print Cartridge
  • Incompatible Print Cartridge
  • Problem with the Print Cartridge
  • Remove and Check [color / black or photo] Cartridge
  • [Tri-color / Black or Photo] Print Cartridge Inserted Now is Not Intended for Use in This Printer

NOTE: In the procedures below, the "problem" cartridge is the one identified by the message on the color graphics display. If the message does not specify a cartridge, perform the procedures on both cartridges. Step 1: Remove, inspect, and reseat the problem cartridge The print cartridge may not have full electrical contact with the printer. Removing and reinstalling the cartridge may help.
NOTE: HP cannot guarantee the quality of remanufactured or refilled cartridges.
  1. Make sure the printer is on. Press the Power button if it is not lit.
  2. Open the printer cover, then wait until the print cartridge carriage is idle and silent.
  3. Press down lightly on the end of the problem cartridge to release it. Figure 1: Removing the tri-color cartridge
  4. Slide the cartridge out and inspect it:
    CAUTION: Do not touch the copper electrical contacts or the ink nozzles. Figure 2: Electrical contacts and nozzlesc00211537.gif 1 - Copper electrical contacts 2 - Nozzles
    • Check the electrical contacts for debris.
    • Make sure all the clear nozzle protective tape has been removed.
      CAUTION: Do not attempt to remove the copper electrical strip! Figure 3: Removing the clear nozzle protective tape
    • Look at the number on the print cartridge label and make sure it is compatible with your printer. Compatible print cartridges are listed in the Printer Reference Guide supplied with your printer.
  5. If the cartridge is compatible, reinstall it in the printer:
    • Cartridges marked with a triangle go into the left carriage slot.
    • Cartridges marked with a square or pentagon go into the right carriage slot.

Step 2: Clean the problem cartridge contacts
  1. Gather the following items to clean the cartridge and carriage:
    • Clean distilled water. Use bottled or filtered water if distilled water is not available. Tap water can contain contaminants that damage the cartridge.
    • Clean cotton swabs or any soft, lint-free material that will not stick to the cartridges (coffee filters work well).
    • Sheets of paper or a paper towel to rest the cartridge on during cleaning.
  2. Open the product cover and wait until the carriage is idle and silent.
  3. Remove the cartridge and place it on a piece of paper with the nozzle plate facing up.
    NOTE: Clean the contacts quickly so that the cartridge is not outside of the product for more than 30 minutes. If the cartridge is outside of the product for too long, the ink can dry and clog the nozzles.
  4. Unplug the product from the electrical outlet.
  5. Dip a swab in the clean water and squeeze it to remove most of the moisture. The swab should be only slightly damp.
  6. Clean the cartridge contacts.
    CAUTION: Do not touch the ink nozzles.
  7. Clean the contacts in the carriage, inside the product.
  8. Either let the cartridge sit for 10 minutes to allow the cleaned area to dry, or use a new swab to dry it.
  9. Reinstall the cartridge.
  10. Reconnect the product to the electrical outlet.
  11. Close the product cover.
Step 3: Repeat reseating and cleaning steps If the problem is not solved, repeat the reseating and cleaning procedures above.

Call HP if the cartridge is covered under warranty to replace the cartridge
or its time for a new printer

HP 6310 printer says HP 95 tricolor is empty.


Ray,
It sounds like you need to replace the cartridge with a new one. The electronics may have went out. We see this usually during the winter months when the static electricity in the air is high and we shock the cartridge. I would also NOT recommend cleaning the head/jets of the cartridge with alcohol. The electronics are fine to clean with alcohol both inside the printer and on the c artridge, but the head will dry out. We recommend taking a damp warm wet paper towel, placing it on a protected surface, and placing the head of the cartridge on the paper towel until you see some ink appear. Then put it back in your printer and let the printer clean off the bottom. If the printer is not cleaning off the bottom of the cartridge, the printer cartridge wiper on the carriage may be broken or stuck.

try cleaning the brown dotted circuit of the printer where you fit your cartridge .clean it gently and slowly with moist tissue and wait for a moment till the moistness get completely dried.and also check whether you are changing the proper cartridge which the message is indicating.check the proper number on the cartridge which you replaced. also try changing the both the cartridges sometimes this helps.also check whether the cartridge is inserted properly in the printer sometimes it is fitted loose in the printer so this happens.

thanks.
