Question about HP OfficeJet K80 All-In-One InkJet Printer
It;s an HP Officejet K80xi and i have the same cartridge in it, it is refilled so i used to have the install color cartridge message on but now it's not working at all
SOURCE: HP OfficeJet G85
If its not recognizing the cartridge you probably need to go inside and clean the contacts. Best thing to use is ordinary rubbing alcohol but you should also get a can of dry air from best buy or similar place to blow out any areas you can reach. If you need instructions on how to take the machine apart email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

It's a long shot, but I would attempt to reset the device back to defaults. If this HP has a "menu" feature, then factory defaults should be an option. Before doing that (and I know this is a dumb question), have you turned the printer off, then turned it back on after a brief rest?
Let me know if this helps and please remember to rate those who assist you :)

SOURCE: error - cartridge incorrect
Check to see if the installed cartridge is the correct one for the printer. If the cartridge is the proper part number, remove the ink cartridge and make sure all the packaging tape has been removed from the copper circuitry strip on the backside of the cartridge. Reinsert the cartridge and try printing again.
If the error continues, remove the cartridge again and clean the copper circuitry strip on the backside of the cartridge, and the contacts inside the printer, by following the instructions below:
1. Use a clean, dry, soft, lint-free cloth. Locate the copper-colored circuitry strip on the back of the cartridge.
2. Wipe the copper-colored strip with the dry cloth. Use an upward motion, from the nozzle end to the top of the cartridge. Do not wipe the nozzle end of the cartridge or touch the nozzle plate. Wipe the contacts only once.
3. To clean the printer contacts, carefully look for fibers or contamination on the electrical contacts inside the carriage assembly, but do not wipe the printer contacts with any object. The contacts in the printer can be damaged if too much pressure is applied during a wiping process. Try to remove any visible attached debris within the carriage assembly by gently pulling the debris off with your fingers. If the carriage contacts show noticeable damage, contact the HP Customer Care Center listed in the printer's User's Guide.
Reinsert the cartridge and try printing again. If the error continues, the cartridge may need to be replaced.
Hope this helps. Please rate my response.
Have a good day.

This is a firmware issue with this printer model, and is fairly common. Try the following: remove both of the print cartridges, close the lid, wait for any noises to stop, and pull the power plug out of the back of the printer while it is still on. Wait at least 10 minutes with the cord disconnected. Plug the power back into the printer, wait for the noises to stop, and then reinstall the cartridges, black first (very important), and then the color. This will force the printer to reload its ram memory and should take care of the glitch. Let me know if you need further assistance, as I would like to be sure your problem is fixed.
