Re: The Printer Cartridge Is no being read

Most of the time with HP printers thats a problem with the actual cartridge itself. What you can do is try a different cartridge(try an old one that was good, doesn't matter if it's empty). If that dowsn't help the printer might require a technician to check the sensors! regards, babb

My HP c4580 states that the cartridge is missing or undetected.So I reinstalled the cartridges and it says the samething,WHAT DO I DO?

It's a new cartridge you fitted?
If not, it's probably because it genuinely is empty.

If new:
Remove all the cartridges. Switch off the printer.
Switch the printer off and reinstall the cartridges.
Switch the printer on.
Switch the printer off.

If you continue to receive the same error message it's because the cartridge isn't fitted/seated correctly, or that cartridge has a problem.

Replacing color cartridge says color cartridge missing

You should probably buy a new cartridge. But, before doing that, you can try to remove the cartridge and clean all the contacts with a dry cloth. You can do the same with the electronic in your printer (the one on the cartridge carrier). If that doesn't work, might be that one of the wires on the cartridge's electronic has blown, and now the printer can't recognize it, and it says that it is "missing". Happens all the time. Usually, you can't print anything when this happens. Sadly, the only solution in that case, is to buy a new cartridge.

Lexmark x7350 all-in-one printer says "missing cartridge" even though the color cartridge is not missing. i have tried wiping off the strip on the cartridge and turn off..waiting.. and turning the printer...

Exchange the cartridge for another new Lexmark cartridge. I think Lexmark printers have gotten so finicky about kicking out refills that they sometimes reject original cartridges. I own a cartridge refilling store and I've had a couple original Lexmark cartridges returned because the printers didn't recognize them.

Printer won't print-says color cartridge is missing and it is there

Just a shot in the dark, was it a refilled ink cartridge. I know HP has a problem detecting the remanufactured cartridges from time to time. And too, if it is not refilled cartridge perhaps you just have a bad cartridge.
Oh, of course Julie remembered to pull the tape off of the bottom of the ink cartridge, correct?
Hope this did some good, please leave rating,
thank you kindly.

Error #12 Shows on my lexmark x4270 all in one how do i clear it

Hello there,

In my experience I've never come across an error #12 on a X4270. I've seen an error 1200 & error 1203 a couple of times. Did you get this error after installing a new cartridge? then there are chances that the new cartridge that you installed is defective. The best way to figure if out is to take both the cartridge out and power recycle the printer with the cartridge out. Check out if the operator panel says "cartridge missing" when it is powered back on. If it doesn't say "cartridge missing" then the printer hardware is defective. You would need to get it serviced. If the printer comes up with "cartridge missing" message, then either one of the two carts that you have is defective. I would suggest you to insert one cart first and close the cover and check if it says "cartridge missing" If it does come up with that message then insert the other cart too.. If you get Error 1203 on after inserting a cart, then that cart is defective and needs to be replaced.

Merry Christmas!

Printer says print cartridge missing or undetected but we just put in the new catriges that came with the new printer

It says invalid or missing ink cartridges. I just changed both, I don't understand why it says missing when i just put new ones in there.
