If powercycle and cleaning copper contacts does not help, you can reset the printer. Try and use the steps here How to Reset the HP PhotoSmart C4200 All-in-One Printer Series. It is important to know the status of the printer if the hardware is still working fine. Also, please use a genuine cartridge as it may cause such issues.

1. Make sure that you removed the tape covering the metal contacts on the print cartridges.

2. Clean those contacts with a cotton swab and distilled, filtered or bottled water. Tap water may damage. Do not touch with curious fingers. Allow to dry.

3. Reinsert, Reset printer.

Uninstall the program from your computer. Plug in your printer first replace with new cartridge making sure to remover the film on the cartridge Then plug in patch cord to computer, program should reinstall if need be you may have to have your disk that comes with the printer. Hope this works, Printers are going for very cheap I would suggest buying a new one if this does not work.

HP PHOTOSMART C4280 PRINTER WONT READ INK CARTRIDGE.


The cartridge is not seated properly and/or the contacts are dirty. Use a cotton swab with rubbing alcohol and gently clean both the copper contacts on the cartridge and inside the cartridge socket. Allow several minutes to dry and then try again.
