  • HarrisonDawg Feb 22, 2009

    Exact same problem here, unfortunately I have not resolved the problem. Printer worked fine until I changed the black cartridge with a new HP OEM cartridge. After 4 or 5 print jobs, the incompatable color cartridge error surfaced. The color cartridge is the OEM that came with the printer and there is NO Way it can be out or even low on ink.

    Yup. I have the same problem with a J4500. They're both HP print cartridges, and the right ones for the printer. They worked well for a while, now the tri-color one is throwing the Incompatible Cartridge error. No amount of cleaning the cartridge, restarting the printer, etc, will make this error go. What a waste of money that cartridge was.

    I don't have an opion about the printer yet - I installed it for a customer - but I do have an opinion about HP's customer service. The tri-color cartridge that came with the printer didn't work (incompatible cartridge error). I spent over 7 hours with HP's support in INDIA (good luck understanding them and vice versa - and I am NOT racist - it's just a fact). After telling my story over and over, doing their troubleshooting steps 5 separate times and being on hold and waiting for call backs I finally asked for a supervisor. I told him in no uncertain terms that he WILL replace the cartridge and I won't take any more **** from the unsupportive support idiots. I got a new cartridge. Was it worth it? Not sure yet - customer hasn't really used the printer much yet but I'm going to encourage her to print out a few pix to make sure. What a load of garbage!

    My ink level indicator went from showing full to a replace tri-color cartridge message. I tried taking the cartridge out and re-inserting it. I tried unplugging the copier for 5 minutes, still I'm having the same error message. The color cartridge is full but the estimated level indication shows a replace cartridge message. No fix found.

    Have you checked your manual for any troubleshooting tips? If your manual is inadequate, check the HP website. Is the black cartridge the correct one for your printer? If not, that could be part of the problem.

My brand new J 4580 printer that did only 25 pages of printing now suddenly has the same problem with the black cartridge that came with the printer. Looks to me like a real crappy printer. Definitely not close to the quality of my previous 8 years old HP G85. I will definitely not recommend this J 4580 printer to anyone - a waste of money!!!

Some times the cartridge holder is dirty take a lint free cloth and very easy wipe it off and try again.
Also if you got refurbished or refilled ink cartridges this can cause a incompatible problem. if they are not recycled clean the holders and put them back in and tell the printer it is new ink even if it is not,where it says is this a new cartridge or a used one check new. hopeully this will solve your problem
Good Luck
