The cartridge could be faulty. Try replacing it with a new colour cartridge. Are you using generics?

Says cartridge error 50C, see manual but i can't fix it


The error basically seems to mean that one or both of the cartridges is defective. It had me take out one cartridge and see if the error happens again.

I had both cartridges in and I got the error message2.gif. I took out the color cartridge and the error message went away. I put the color one back in and I got the error message again.

I replaced the cartridge and everything works fine.

The ink warning light flashes, and won't go off, even after I've put a new cartridge in. I've unplugged the printer, turned it off and on, plugged the cable back in, and it won't go off.


A blinking orange light means an empty or incorrectly installed ink cartridge. Ensure that the cartridge is not empty or dried out. Also be sure you installed the number 45 black and number 78 tri color cartridges. The 41 tri-color, for example, looks the same but would generate an error. Also, check that the panel in the back, or duplexer if you have one, is seated firmly in the printer as this can generate odd errors.

Check Printer Light Keeps Flashing on C3180 PhotoSmart


No, you do not need 3 cartridges or anything like that. Some cartridges have chips. Yours do not. If the light keeps blinking it means that one of the electrical contacts on the cartridge has blown and now the printer doesn't recognize it. Try printing something, you will get a message "problem with color cartridge" or "color cartridge missing". That means that the printer doesn't recognize it. I suggest you buy a new one. Or, if you have an old one, try putting it in and see if the light still blinks.

HP PSC 750xi - Incorrect color printer cartridge installed error


I had this same problem and by a luck I fixed it. Not sure if the method to the madness had anything to do with it, but I'll put it down in the order that I did everything. 1. reset to factory defaults 2. pulled all cartridges out. it prompted me to put color in first, then black. message was still blinking so i took out color and put it back in again. 3. i did the partial reset by holding down cancel and left arrow while i unplugged/replugged the printer. 4. no the printer started displaying "remove and check color cartridge" (or something to that degree) 5. i took out color cartridge, cleaned the contacts with water on towel, and replaced cartridge. 6. same message still being displayed, but it allowed me to print a maintenance report. so i then cleaned cartridges and aligned cartridges through standard menu. 7. msg still being displayed, so i turned off/on printer again. this time it came back up with no message at all. 8. printer now works
hope this helps and works for ya'll too!

First... check to make sure you removed the yellow tab from the new print cartridge

put the ink cartridge back into the printer

click Start
click Control Panel
open Printers and Faxes
click (or double click to open) your printer icon

Then try printing again.
If this does not work, look in the manual that came with the printer and check out the troubleshooting section.

My Hp does not recognize my color cartridge?


Sometimes the color bleeds over. Did you wipe down the contacts and clean the heads? Also, most of the cartridges have low ink sensors in the. Even if you have them refilled, they will still show as low ink. The only solution is to buy the new ones.... $$$$$$.

Color Cartridge


If a Cartridge looks OKAY, it doesn't mean it is OK. You can not say it is ok. Turn out from the printer and install a new one then continue.
