Question about HP Photosmart C7280 Printer

1 Answer

"Missing or Damaged" cart message.

Our C7280 displays a 'Missing or Damaged Cartridge' message as soon as it is turned on, but does not list any colours to replace.  We have removed and replaced all of the colours (all brand new) to no avail.  The carts printed fine a few days ago but now the printer won't even let us select a different mode - we can't send a fax, scan or anything.

    I'm having the same problem & called the hp technical support. My warranty expired only 16 days ago & the agent said is a hardware problem & offered an upgrade printer or the same printer for a 45% discount but the prince quated $220 was $60 more than I paid for this printer a year ago!

Just purchased a used HP LaserJet 4 Plus -- when turned on and installed it is showing 14 no EP CART -- we do not use cartridges so need to reset to default settings. Tried Power On and holding online but...


Ensure that the Toner Cartridge is installed correctly (fully
seated into the printer). Try a new Toner Cartridge. If the
problem continues, try this

14 NO EP CART Message

The printer detects the presence of the Toner Cartridge and the
level of toner present in the cartridge through the condition of the
ANTIN signal. The ANTIN signal becomes part of the serial data
stream used to communicate with the DC Controller (see Figure
7-5 for cartridge components). Troubleshoot the 14 NO EP CART
(or INSTALL TONER CARTRIDGE) message as follows:
1 Reseat the Toner Cartridge. Try a new or known good Toner
Cartridge.
2 Check the High Voltage Contacts for damage. If the contacts
are dirty or damaged, clean the contacts after the repair.
3 Replace the High Voltage Power Supply.
4 Check and reseat the HVPS cable.
5 Replace the DC Controller.

2 .Open the cartridge carrier Remove the cartridges used a clean paper make sure its dry wipe the area where the ink goes out make sure its clean specially the gold plate .CLean also the area where you return your cartridges also the contacts on the cartridge carrier make sure its clean OK .
Then return it again

You may also do that when your printer is on

2.thats the time you will remove the cartridge and clean and clean the cartridge carrrier
3.open again the cover reinsert the cartridges

Not sensing the ink cartridge


In this scenario you should check with a new set of black cart or you can try by cleaning the cart with a lint free cloth. and try with resetting the printer as well. if it doesnt work then printer might have gone bad

Color cartridge missing


You may want to remove the power brick at the back of your printer, wait a few seconds and reinsert back. Then try the steps listed in the user guide to install new carts, page 42.

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!
