Question about HP PhotoSmart C4280 Laser Printer

Cartridge not detected or missing message.

My printer screen is showing that the ink cartridge/s cannot be detected or are/is missing. This has only happened after I removed and replaced the black cartridge. I have cleaned the contacts on cartridge & on the printer, but printer still tells me the same.

    I have the same problem and I thought it was because I was out of ink but I just put in a new black one because the color is full and I still get the same message.

    Have just purchased a new C4280, and cannot get beyond the message "Print cartridge(s) missing or not detected", inspite of new HP cartridges being installed in accordance with instructions.

    I have the exact same problem it displays missing cartridge for the Black ink when it is in there . It will refuse to print because there is "missing cartridge" but on the other hand when I print a diagnosic test page it prints just fine but then anything other than that it will not print???

I tried DIFFERENT print cartridges and rebooted the printer, and got it to work. Took the old cartridges that DIDN'T work and put them in an identical printer and it worked fine..... go figure. Way to go HP.

Catridge error refer to device documentation to troubleshoot


You can go to HP's site and find that you have a problem with one or more of your ink cartridges see:

If there are no ink cartridges missing from the HP All-in-One, the ink cartridge contacts might
need to be cleaned.
If there are no ink cartridges missing from the HP All-in-One, and you still receive this message
after cleaning the ink cartridge contacts, you might have a damaged ink cartridge. Contact HP

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

Well, here is the proper way of fixing or troubleshooting that paper jam error in your printer

Open the printer access door and remove both of the ink cartridge, then remove also the printhead, after that close the printer access door, without those parts. Then it will show a message in the printer screen, "Printhead is missing or has come loose" or "Printhead Not Detected" Install the printhead, just the printhead without the ink cartridges. After that close the printer access door. Then it will show you a message"Ink cartridges is not installed,install ink cartridges". then open again the printer access door, then install the black ink cartridge without the color ink cartridge. then close the printer access door, then message must be " Color ink cartridge is not installed, install color ink cartridge" then install the color ink cartridge." the message must be,"New printhead is detected calibration require, load paper and press start"

Thats the way of overiding the paper jam error message of your kodak all in one printer
hope this will help you guys
