I've received the error message: "Printer

Mostly, printer cartridge error occurs when the printer head is unable to identify the cartridge properly. And the basic reason behind this is that the cartridge is improperly attached. To reattach the cartridge, turn on the lid of the printer and then remove the cartridge from the printer head. Check the cartridge to make sure that there are no scratches or other damaged parts that can contribute to a printer cartridge error report. Take note that the cartridge should not be left open for more than 30 minutes; otherwise the ink will start to dry up and the cartridge will get clogged.

I solved it! I bought a new Epson 3 in 1. Funny thing; I have a "FREE FER TAKEN" box just inside my shop, people come in all the time to check it. I put 3 HP ink jet printers in there almost a year ago and nobody wants them.
