They believe expired cartridges will damage the printer. If you change the date back on the printer and computer this will solve the problem and allow you to print.

Your printer uses the following cartridges:

HP 74 - Black ink
HP 75 - Cyan, Magenta, and Yellow ink
HP 99 - Photo Black, Light Cyan, and Light Magenta

You need Photo Black, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Light Cyan, and Light Magenta to print photos. To accomplish this you install the HP 99 photo cartridge where your HP 74 black cartridge usually goes and you keep the HP 75 color cartridge where it's at. I don't know why your printer told you to remove both cartridges, then reinstall the HP 75 color cartridge.

Printer keeps saying "INSTALL BLACK CARTRIDGE".


If you are using Windows.
Go into "Start", "Printers and Faxes".
Right click on the printer icon.
Click properties.
Look for reset cartridge.
Or something similar.
That should fix the problem.

HP 8150 Wont Print in color


Hi i have simular problems i think. i did getting a fault on my cartridge and the fault message i getting tells me that something is wrong with cartridge and printer will print in backup mode by takeing away the black cartridge, i did try to change to a new black cartridge and the same problems appear.
After some investigating of this problem it seems to be a kind of delikat on my printer, inside where the black cartridge should be placed there are a metall "feather/spring" this has losen at one time i dont know when. but this sharp metall "spring" have been pushed in when replacing cartridge and made a hole in white elektrical connections for this particular cartridge and may damage this connections, maybe this has happend with yours printer as well.!?

And know how to fix this, with no support left at HP there arent so much to do i believe i have to use cartridge with triple color or trow this one away and buy a new one. Use and trow away with blessing from HP.

After you get the carriage centered to remove the ink, power off the printer. If you replaced the cartridge with a new cartridge check cartridge for tape residual that might be covering the copper contacts. ( you may not be able to see this).
If you use a refill kit. Most printer Mfg's insert a chip in all there ink cartridges. This chip tracks when you remove an empty cartridge through the printer software. So it knows you replaced the same cartridge forcing you to buy another.
You can also clean the copper ink cartridge contacts with some alcohol & cotton swabs. (Careful not to drip excessive alcohol onto the bottom of the cartridge). Clean the carriage contacts as well. Re-place the cartridge & try again.

Luck!

Expired ink cartridge


You may be getting this error message due to the printer being able to tell that it is a non-hp cartridge. I don't know how it can tell, but mine says that too. I uninstalled the software and then reinstalled the software. And then I took out the cartridge and put it back in. See if this works for you.
