Question about HP OfficeJet 7310 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I keep getting an error message saying "remove and check cartridge on right". I have done this (with even a new cartridge) and I have noticed after a thorough inspection that the metal retaining clip that helps put tension on the right cartridge popped loose. The plastic peg that helps keep this in has broken off and now the metal clip has poked two or three small holes through the back, just to the right of the copper connects that read the cartridge. Is there any way to order a replacement print cartridge tray? I know this is probably not the correct word for it, but I can't find it anywhere.
You won't find this kind of part, try to buy a similar broken printer where you can get this part.

I have seen this happen with many printers of this type. The only fix I know is call HP and check the status of the warranty. As long as that spring clip isn't holding that ink cart in the proper position it will never see the ink cartridge as being installed. That the spring has poked holes in the contacts is also common with this type of breakage. This printer is no longer being sold by HP so if you gripe enough they might offer you another type of printer.
I'm sorry the news isn't better. Good luck.
