I believe your issue is that the contact points within the printer could be dirty.
Clean the contacts within the bay, where the cartridge goes in, with a #2 pencil eraser; then install the cartridge.
If the cartridge still will not recognize, then try another cartridge.
If this cartridge still doesn't work, you will have to replace the printer.
Hi there maximum time we found it is a the head problem. The print head is what the cartridges sit in inside of the printer. For resolve the problem please follow these.
Open the printer and wait for the carriage to slide over. Some how if its not come then Unplug the printer & Manually slide the carriage. Now Remove the ink cartridges from the print head & Use wet warm cotton swab or use alcohol to thoroughly clean the print head. Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab. After finished it make the head dry then fix it back. Now Try to print something now
If that does not work then follow the next step.
Remove the printer data cable & restart the PC & printer. Then fit back the data cable & turn on the printer. Hope that's start working , if no luck then Uninstall the printer driver & restart the PC & Printer both again. Now install the driver of the printer and connect it with PC ,Turn on printer & go for a test print from the printer preference. Thanks & waiting for your reply.
I just had this same problem (cartridge on left). Something had broken that was holding the little metal wire in place--the one that sticks out along the bottom where your cartridge goes but apparently moves to the side when you install the cartridge. My guess is that this wire may make some sort of electrical connection that indicates when the cartridge is all the way it (if it doesn't move--or if it is broken--it doesn't make the connection and it thinks something is wrong with the way the cartridge is installed. So I used a strip of tape to hold the wire in place on the side of the cartridge compartment (it had been loose and flopping around), and it works fine now.
Could have a corrupt driver. Disconnect
the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do
both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer
to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
When this printer first came out, I got all excited and bought one, within six months I had it on the shelf, and went back to my HP2610, which I am still using. I personally think that this is the Edsel of HP printers.
