SOURCE: Cartridge errors on HP97 / bad TSR?

Hi Scott -

Sorry, I do not have any additional ideas as it seems you have checked things I would have suggested - cleaning the contacts. (I presume you did clean the cartrdige contacts in addition to the printer contacts.) The TSR may be correct but may be encoded incorrectly, which could cause an issue as this would make the printer "think" the cartridge was too hot or too cold. The printer will refuse to print with certain ID errors. A 10-tap will bypass this test as a diagnostic aid. Does the 10-tap show a "good" nozzle diagnostic? If there are repeating missing nozzle segments across all three colors it would indicate an interconnect issue.

If the cartridges are original HP cartridges I would check the warranty date (two years warranty from date of manufacture) as shown here. If the cartridges are still in the warranty period contact HP for replacements.

SOURCE: officejet d135 - "Supply Expired" error message

HP, in order to sell more ink, monitors the expiration date of the cartridges installed. Solution is either to buy a new unexpired cartridge from HP or to disable the date monitoring built in to the printer. This latter is done by removing the button cell located inside the D135 printer on the left hand side or by simply slipping a thin piece of plastic between button cell and metal contact. You will no longer have date function on printer, but it won't object to expired cartridges either.

you need to reset your printer. Do this: start>control panel>performance and maintenance> administrative tools> services: then scroll down until you come to print spooler, click on it and then in the left hand corner click on restart.
I do this whenever my printer gives me trouble, really works
